a small "boutique" hotel at the very top of a steep slope with incredible views. It appeared to be a fancy house renovated into a hotel. The view from the balcony was amazing and infinity pool looked great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The main downside was finding the place and the fact it is at the very top of a very steep hill made it quite inaccessible. It is far from everything as well although situated between Camps Bay and Seaside. Other downside was the parking was quite tight. Overall a nice hotel if you like the B & B or boutique style accommodations and don't mind the hassle of tight parking and fairly long drive to eat or go out. For me and my tastes I am not a fan of B & B as I don't like the feeling of being in someone's house so wouldn't recommend it unless you like that sort of thing but to be clear this is not to take away from the appointment of the hotel or its staff.

"Felt like home and got more than my money's worth"
I picked Villa Sunshine because of the affordable cost and what looked like a good location from the map having never been to SA before, and I got more than my money's worth for the whole week. I travel a ton for work, so much so that it's wearing on me, and Villa Sunshine completely took the feeling of living out of my suitcase away. All of the staff were really kind and always helpful. They made the check-in painless and were ready to help or chat at any time - even spotting me 200 rand to order take out when I had no cash late at night. They were all great to chat with about local life, and share about their own diverse backgrounds.
As for the hotel itself, the pool was great for a dip and the rooms were really clean and spacious with great ocean views that you'd probably pay 4x for in California. If you're looking for a nice, quiet, clean place at a good price, you won't regret Villa Sunshine.
Emmy was exceptional from the minute we got to the hotel until we left. Nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean with fresh decor. Afternoon tea was provided free of charge and the breakfast was excellent.

Outstanding! ALL of the hotel staff were very helpful and very nice to talk to. There were happy greetings all day long. The view the hotel rooms have of the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Town is breathtaking. I had two rooms in the time I stayed and the balcony was the place to be. The tour desk offered the best tours for everyday of the week. And let me tell you about the hotel shuttle...excellent and extremely accommodating. The three driver I had were great for tips and suggestions for places to go. I have been all around the world and I have to admit, this is the first hotel I have ever written a review for. The best of the best! The Peninsula Hotel is the only hotel I would ever stay at in Cape Town or anywhere else there is a Peninsula Hotel.

After 10 hectic days in and around Cape Town we wanted to have 4 nights of peace and quiet by a pool. The hotel was great, fantastic views, relaxed environment and small enough to feel homely. Although the rooms are perhaps a little dated, it is a great hotel, the staff were absolutely fantastic, the best i have encountered, willing to help, constantly with a smile and never wavering in enthusiasm ! Would definitely return.

Nothing much that you'd be interested in as we hardly stayed at the hotel. It says I need to add a bit more to the review but not really sure what to add other than mentioning it was a good location for the price
Helpful staff, very nice gentleman would greet you and would also make a quick breakfast which comprised of Bacon and Eggs. The room was clean and had AC for the warmer nights. During the day some building work in the property next door did make a bit of noise but they never worked at unsociable hours.

Front desk staff very helpful & professional. Rooms ok, bar area looks good but only had one beer on draft and that did not work for the 4 days that I was there. That left a choice of 1 bottled beer. Cocktails limited to choice of 6 and bar closed at 20:00.
