We had a wonderful stay at Westbank Beach Villa, spending our first ever Christmas abroad there. It was very easy to find and only half an hour from the airport. The situation was stunning, right on the shore with beautiful views all around. We enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi and the beach, which you can access from the villa. You can then walk all the way along to the main beach of Gordon's Bay - we loved seeing so many happy families spending Christmas day on the beach together. We were really well looked after by Joseph and his wife Alice, who were delightful - helpful when we needed them and discreet when we didn't! We spent one day driving along the spectacular coastline to Hermanus, only an hour away, where we had a delicious meal at Burgundy Restaurant. It's also a great location to visit the Winelands - both Franschhoek and Stellenbosch were easily accessible - and we booked a picnic at the gorgeous Boschendal estate. There are plenty of great supermarkets within 5 minutes drive away and to get into the centre of Cape Town took around 50 minutes. I think the kitchen must have been updated since some of the previous reviews as we found it very well-equipped. The braai was fabulous and we used it for our first Christmas barbecue! All in all a wonderful place to stay, that we would thoroughly recommend. Thank you! Fiona, Steve and family

Westbank is very well located, an hour's drive away from Cape Town or the winelands. The drive accommodates at least two cars and access to the house is via a short but steep set of stairs. Once inside, the house has spacious rooms with renovated showers, apart from the sea facing bedroom which has a stand in shower / bath which needs some modernisation. We did find that the kitchen struggled with our needs as a large Latin family that enjoy cooking! I suggest an upgrade in that area. Joseph, the resident houseman is courteous and very obliging, looking after guests, housekeeping and the pool / jacuzzi. We spent many relaxing hours in the jacuzzi and pool areas which overlook the sea and private beach area. The grand old dame that is Westbank is great for family holidays in a quieter part of the Cape.

The caretakers live on the property, they come in and out almost every hour to clean even if there is nothing to clean at all...they knock on doors loudly and come in unannounced at the most awkward of times. Not the blissful beach breakaway we had hoped for that we found ourselves checking out earlier than intended. Jacuzzi is out of order due to water restrictions, not sure why the hosts get the privilege of using this as part of their marketing when it cannot be used since these restrictions have been in place for well over 3 months already. Very disappoinyrd experience indeed.

Response from Cameron:
We will most definitely discuss this with the houseman as he is under quite strict instruction to leave the guests. The Jacuzzi is not out of order and the entire Western Cape is under water restrictions due to massive drought. This is completely out of my control. You could have cancelled you reservation if this was you sole purpose to being there. You have my details and one call would have resolved most of these issues. I am sorry you did not have a satisfactory stay. I would be happy to give you and you family a free night when the restrictions are reversed and we will ensure you have no staff.

Absolutely perfectly situated. Stunning views and sea for days. Loved that you have private direct access to the beach. Rooms were a nice size. Bathrooms are all good. Was disappointed that we couldn't use the jacuzzi but it was due to water restrictions in the Cape area. Pool and outside entertainment area was great. Really awesome that we had Joseph to clean for us daily and do our washing. It was fantastic. Loved this holiday home for our family.

The view is great, villa is very large, location is good although Gordon's bay was slightly busier than we expected. We had major problems with cockroaches during our whole stay. They were huge and just not something one would expect in a villa with these rates. Kids were terrified, the bugs even walked on our dining table.... Cameron did his best and sent a fumigator, but it simply did not kill them all..... to be honoust, I think they have been there for quite a while as even the houseman was aware they were there and new exactly where they come out of the sewage. Kitchen was top (although cockroaches were dancing there!) Cameron solved our problem with fans right away.

Beautiful place for either family or friends wanting to reconnect and have a relaxing stay. I (and my guests) were blown away by the beautiful views, well maintained house and lovely amenities. Thank you to Cameron for the beautiful place and Joseph for looking after us so nicely!

We had a lovely week here, the house is situated right on the beach as in the pictures. Views to die for. The house is old, like and old farm house with mismatching cutlery / crockery / glasses. (Not enough champagne glasses....) We however enjoyed our stay. The rooms could have fans or mosquito nets as we were hot and when opening the windows were eaten alive by mosquitos. Joseph who lives on the premises is an absolute gem, very helpful & obliging.
