I cannot rate this accommodation highly enough everything about is perfect. The location is within walking distance of camps bay shops and restaurants. We were in Cape Town for a family wedding and therefore needed extra accommodation for family to stay. The villa is is perfectly furnished and kitchen has every utensil you would ever need.
Alma and Chris make perfect hosts who are always on hand to assist with any help you may require. The fridge was stocked with a basic essentials plus tea and coffee and preserves in addition a welcoming bottle of red wine which I believe Chris's favourite wine. There is a daily maid service who will clear and wash up for you, clean the rooms and make up the beds.
Nothing is too much trouble..Although information online doesn't allow you to book a cot they are able to provide a cot subject to availability. Alma quickly responded to my online request advising the nominal cost. Excellent free internet access. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

Trust to see you again soon.

“Total Bliss”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in March 2012

It is with fondest of memories I look back to the time I spent at The Blinkwater Villa in April 2012.

The Blinkwater let me experience so much of what Cape Town is legendary for from the luxury of my sumptuous king size bed. The views, scents and sounds through the sliding doors, the majestic mountains and Bay below took my breath away. From inhaling the fresh Atlantic air, smelling the pungent 'fynbos' from the manicured terrace to listening to the waves lapping on the beach below it was an experience that massaged every one of the senses.

I felt utterly spoilt and self-indulgent in the best possible way within the villa, but the outside world beckoned via the beautifully manicured gardens and poolside terraces to the vibrant and buzzy area of downtown Camps Bay with its trendy boutique hotels, restaurants and beautiful bodies on sandy beaches. .

From dawn to dusk the villa enchants . I vividly recall one of those magical nights we sat on the terrace, basked in moonlight, watching a fairy trail of night trippers navigating their way up and down Lion's Head while our mouth watering feast of Karoo lamb was sizzling on the barbecue. That's indeed the stuff that memories are made of.

I want to, need to, HAVE to go back soonest for another fix.

- The house is amazing. Impeccable interior design with great functions. Equipped with all facilities you can name it e.g. washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker, oven, microwave, kitchen, full kitchen-ware, hairdryer etc. The kitchen is so perfectly equipped with full kitchenware and utensils that we decided to cook almost everyday during our stay. The living room also makes us feel like home with TV, dvd player and comfy sofa
- Great location: Perfectly located in Camps Bay area. From the house we can see the Lion head very clearly. The area is very safe and only 200-300 meters to lots of restaurants and supermarket
- Friendly and helpful landlord: The landlords (Alma and Chris) are very nice and friendly. At Blinkwater, we feel like staying at our friend's house with the great hospitality from Alma and Chris. Before the trip, I emailed and ask Alma a lot of questions about the area, and she was very helpful in providing us information. Thanks Alma!
- Don't miss the coffee or cappucino at Blinkwater (The built-in Siemen coffee machine is not only state-of-art but also give us the best coffee!! Very impressive)
