“Perfect location”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I chose the Blinkwater to host a decade birthday celebration with my partner and 5 other friends. I’d been to Cape Town twice before, and picked Camps Bay as the setting for the “newbies” to explore all that the Western Cape has to offer. The Villa is modern, clean and quiet. It is perfectly situated above Camps Bay, but we could still hear the ocean for the spacious outdoor pool and decks. The views from the Villa of the beach to the West, as well as Lions Head and Table Mountain, are spectacular. The bedrooms were spacious and bathrooms had all the amenities one could want. The kitchen has plenty of dishes and the right pots/pans and utensils for making any meal. We chose to do most breakfasts and dinners in the Villa. The built in Siemens espresso/coffee machine was a real treat for the coffee addicts! The Villa comes with staff (house cleaners) that were very thorough and professional, and made the stay more enjoyable and carefree. Cape Town and most attractions were a $4 Uber ride (or less), and the Hop on Hop Off bus – which is a great way to explore the area – has a stop in Camps Bay about 6 blocks from the Villa. Alma, Chris and Louis the house dog were terrific hosts!

Thank you for your brilliant review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the stay and hope to see you again in the near future. We have visited La Motte recently and thought of your review as well. It was lovely to be able to provide visits from Louis during your stay!
Take much care and thanks again!

“The Blinkwater has it all!”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in August 2015

The villa is spacious, luxurious yet comfortable, and with amazing views of Camp's Bay and Table Mountain. The hosts are terrific; welcoming and very helpful. My family, including wife and two children and sister-in-law, had an amazing 4 days in Capetown, and the Blinkwater was a great home base. The floor plan is open and there is plenty of natural lighting through the floor to ceiling windows. We loved having breakfast in the bright dining area or outside on the main patio. The children loved having their own bedrooms and everything (kitchen, TVs, etc) is state of the art. We wished for warmer winter weather to enjoy the private pool, and - because there was so much to do in Capetown - we wished for more time to enjoy everything the Blinkwater had to offer. We were all sad to leave and can't wait to return. I can't imaging a better vacation rental for a large family in Capetown. As they say in South Africa: "Brilliant!"
