“Great place to stay”

Waking up to see the back of Table Mountain every day meant your day always started the best way possible. Amelia Villa is both in a very quiet location but yet only minutes car drive away from Constantia centre or the main road back into Cape Town or perhaps around the Cape Peninsular.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can confirm the villa is equipped with everything we needed. While housekeeping was to the very highest standard. Would certainly give the place the highest recommendation.

“Excellent value, comfort and convenience”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent 2 glorious weeks at Amelia Villa when visiting Cape Town with two of our children, their spouses and two small grandchildren. Amelia Villa suited us perfectly. It was comfortable, clean in a quiet street, with shops and amenities a short drive away. Chris and Lynne were tremendous hosts, who left us to enjoy ourselves but were quick to help if required. We will definitely be back to Amelia Villa next time we visit the Cape.

“Comfortable, but in part also disappointing”

The property needs TLC, which we believe the owners are conscious of, as well as upgrading some of the furnishings and kitchenware. However, that being said we were comfortable. It was unfortunate that serious building work was being undertaken in a next door property, which meant any days at "home" were spoilt by the noise. (The owners were apologetic and compensated by taking us out to dinner, which was appreciated.) The pool is communal, but restricted in use at certain times of the day and its surrounds were not inviting; no poolside furniture e.g loungers were available.. Another drawback is that it is across the road and behind another property, which might account for the restrictions.
there were a number of deficiencies, as we observed them, e.g. the absence of sun-loungers on the premises, (there was one which had seen better days), which we consider an essential for a holiday let in that climate. As mentioned in another review the WiFi is unreliable, constantly having to be re-connected.
However, it must be stressed that Chris and Lynne were receptive to our concerns and we cannot fault them in their determination to address these and to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Management Response

Where possible we responded promptly to the Hill's requests including providing sun loungers. We try and focus our efforts on aspects that we have control over. Good or bad, the feedback is welcomed. It really is the first time that we have not met our guests expectations.

“Lovely Villa, beautiful location”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Amelia villa is a perfect home from home and really has everything you need. Set in the beautiful Constantia Area it was wonderful to wake up to fabulous views of the vineyards and mountains. Enough space for 3 couples comfortably, and a swimming pool although it was too chilly even for us Brits!

Chris and Lynn we're welcoming hosts and happy to help with issues re the villa or location.

Our only minor inconveniences were that the wifi wasn't particularly stable, and we experienced load shedding (power outages) on half the days we stayed.

“Home from home plus the benefit of amazing hosts"”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our entire experience was extremely positive! We enjoyed a quick response when we booked, C was really helpful with arranging key collection when our flight was delayed by several hours and nothing ever seemed to be a problem for C and L. We travelled with three teenagers so the accommodation was perfect - enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone, enough space for all of us to relax, swim, see friends and really feel that we had a home from home PLUS! There is everything you'll need to make a family stay easy - cooking and laundry facilities as well as a BBQ and garden, pool etc. All this in addition to the genuinely kind and considerate hosts who went out of their way to make our stay smooth and enjoyable - way beyond expectation and what others would have offered.
We will definitely book here again, even if travelling alone with no family, for all the above reasons as well as the great location - not far from the main sites but nonetheless away from the expensive tourist areas. Highly recommended!
