The location in Camps Bay is great. 5 mins to the beach front and a 10 mins drive to Cape Towns hectic city centre. Pat and Chris are great hosts who will give recommendations to restaurants and sights, as well as reveal some the city's hidden gems. We truly enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend it to anyone coming to Cape Town.

This is a pleasant oasis in a nice quiet neighborhood. The cottage is separate from the main house where Chris & Pat live, and we spent a lot of our time just relaxing by the pool. Chris & Pat keeps a high service standard like what you would get at hotels but still with that little personal touch to it. It is apparent that they have done this for over 20 yrs. Communication was great. Chris sent us the necessary information at various times -- even small details like which roads to avoid at certain times due to traffic when we were getting there. In the living room they have a list of useful advices about where to eat, things to do etc. Cleanliness was top notch with regular emptying of trash and changes of towels. The location is convenient with a short walk to the beach, grocery, pubs, and restaurants. We especially enjoyed eating at the Hussar Grill right up the street. It's also just a short drive to the Table Mountain or the Waterfront. All in all, we truly enjoyed the relaxing stay and the hospitality of Chris & Pat!

This is a fantastic little spot nestled in beautiful Camps Bay within walking distance from the bustling and lively beachfront restaurant strip. Pat and Chris were great hosts and everything we needed was provided for in our private separate accommodation. We had many lovely braais in the backyard and swims in the pool after a hot day. Highly recommend a stay at The Patch!

Thanks Ruth, and also for your kind words in the visitor's book. It was a pleasure having you and Peter stay in our cottage and we enjoyed our very interesting chats. We are reminded that we are in the holiday lets business because we get to meet super people like yourselves. Safe travels and we look forward to your return.

The Patch was even better than we had hoped. This private granny flat was roomy, comfortable, nicely decorated, and a great home base for our Cape Town adventures. The pool was cleaned daily, and we loved it for the hot summer days. We appreciated the privacy afforded by the separate entrance and parking garage, but Pat and Chris were always available if we had questions. Pat and Chris were excellent hosts. They provided us with a warm welcome, and some key supplies to get started. They also shared information about local attractions and hiking routes. The Patch is a short walk down the hill into Camps Bay. This beach area is a hotspot for food, drinks, shopping, and stunning views of the mountains. It's also a quick drive to Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront, and other Cape Town districts. We would definitely stay at The Patch again!

The patch is in a great location, less than 10 minutes walk to the main strip of camps Bay. The apartment is very spacious well appointed & spotlessly clean. Everything was catered for with a well equipped kitchen & great attention to detail. Milk & orange juice in the fridge plus a bowl of fruit was a very thoughtful touch. The cottage has its own private entrance & is in a secure location. The use of the pool is a super bonus, especially considering the heat of the Cape. Communication from Pat & Chris was first rate & they made us feel very welcome. We had a great stay & look forward to returning in the future.

We can highly recommend the patch. Great value for money and really lovely hosts. A lot of space for two people and a very nice pool and garden. We had complete privacy, but Chris was always there if we had a question, which was great as we were in cape town for the first time. Chris is the ultimate host - warn friendly and super helpful.
