About Patrick Arnold
We were married in 2005 and have three young kids that just love our family holidays abroad so we are really lucky to be able to visit such exciting places.
Patrick Arnold purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Patrick Arnold chose Camps Bay
It had such great potential - big entertaining areas inside and out, balconies and views for everyone.
What makes this Villa unique
Its so close to everything. You can walk to the beach and the nearest shops, bars and restaurants while its only 10 minutes into town by car, 30 to the airport and nothing is too far away.

spacious comfortable home with stunning view in a convenient, safe area
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, comfortable house with the bonus of a pool to cool down in at the end of a day of touring lovely Cape Town. Housekeeper Philomina kept everything in order, which made our holiday even more relaxing. Thank you to all!
So glad you had a great time, hope you will come again!
Just finished our week’s holiday at Ocean Sweep. It is a fabulous family home with everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing multi-generational family trip. The house is really spacious and well appointed with wonderful views over the bay.
There are lots of lovely sitting areas and a great pool so everyone can find the space to relax or be together as the mood takes them.
If you want to eat in, it has everything you need but if you prefer to dine out it’s only a short walk down to the buzzing strip of Camps Bay which is full of lively and delicious restaurants.
Camps Bay makes an excellent base for visiting Cape Town and the surrounding areas.
We were really well looked after by the delightful Philomena who couldn’t have been nicer. Charl was also brilliant and sorted any problems out immediately (of which there were only a couple of small ones like a temperamental safe!).
I would recommend this house to anyone and would definitely come again.
So glad you had a good time - do let us know when you want to come back!

A modern comfortable house with amazing views
We stayed for 6 nights as a group of seven adults. The house is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed using the BBQ on the evenings we were at home. The views across the bay are spectacular - particularly so when sitting with a sundowner! A maid was available to come in every day - she came to us alternate days which meant the house was beautifully clean and tidy. At the time of our visit there were strict water regulations. This meant taking two minute showers and collecting as much water as possible in the shower in a bucket for re-use. We drank bottled water which was plentiful, so no real problems. There was a very high wind one night which triggered the alarm about 6am with a prompt and reassuring attendance by the armed response team. It is a ten minute walk downhill to the front and the beach. An Uber is very cheap and easy if you prefer not to walk back up hill! We drove into Cape Town and parked easily in the car park at the V&A Waterfront. Altogether we had a great time and would thoroughly recommend both this house and Camps Bay.
Amazing house, Amazing location, Amazing Cape Town
The house is exactly as described (not always the case when renting properties) and we loved it so much we are already looking to book again for the same period next year. The location is great - a 10 minute stroll down to the beach and the restaurants and bars in Camps Bay but also only a 15 minute drive over the hill and into Cape Town and all the the V&A Waterfront. The house has everything you need and the views are simply breathtaking - Lions Head to the side and Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles behind the house - I could sit there all day and just stare at that view. The house is safe, secure and alarmed - the alarm did go off the very first night as we had left some washing on the line at the back of the house - it was quite windy and this set it off. We immediately received a phone call from the security company and their personnel were ringing the doorbell within 5 minutes to check everything was ok. From booking right through to departure, communication with the owner and Charl the manager was fantastic and we loved having Philomena, the housekeeper, around to help keep the house spotless and tidy and also answer any questions we had. I can't recommend this property enough.
Thanks Louise - it was lovely to have you to stay an dee look forward to seeing you again next year!
Good size and amenities but needs some TLC in quite a few areas
The staff and property manager were on hand when needed which was good as the dishwasher blew up on day 1! Accommodation standard was ok but needs a lick of paint everywhere and new curtains in some of the bedrooms to actually block light out. On the whole a pleasant stay
ocean sweep, camps bay, cape town
We came from Boston to visit our daughter studying at the University this semester. We had never been to Cape Town and were blown away by its beauty. We also have never rented from VRBO, and our experience was perfect! I would highly recommend this house. It was great for the college kids to come over and hang! We barbecued one evening and had a lovely meal out on the patio. From almost every bedroom one can lie in bed and see the beautiful ocean. The breath taking mountains are above us, and we used uber for all of our transportation. The walk down to the village of Camps Bay was easy and we often went to dinner there. Recommend Cod Father for a delicious fish dinner...it is at the bottom of Camps Bay Road to the right.
The staff was five star. We welcomed back beautiful Philomena who just arrived from maternity leave. We saw photos of her new baby Chloe, and her 8 year old daughter Natalie. Her cousin, Precious took good care of us in the mean time as we had her over to freshen the house a few times. Charl, the house manager, checked in with us routinely...and was very very receptive when the hair dryer blew! We could not have been given better attention. The kindness and attention to detail from all was exemplary.
The pool was chilly but swimmable...the house is set up for a large crowd and very "kid" friendly...with a high chair and crib if needed. There are plenty of bathrooms, and lots of open space along with large tables for dining. The only advice I would give to a large group is that there is a washing machine but no dryer. So plan accordingly as it will take a day for laundry to wash if the sun is not out.
We hope to return with our elder daughter some day. We will miss this place as it is a secret jewel. Thank you to Patrick as well for being so receptive about the need for WIFI. It too was seamless...and both my husband and I were able to keep our businesses going from six hours away and two continents. Had that not worked in the manner they had promised, we would have experienced high stress.
Sadly we leave today, and again, Charl was incredibly generous about making sure we had no pressure getting out of here. I cannot say enough about how happy , delightful, and comfortable our stay was here in Paradise.

We are so pleased that you had a such a nice time. I hope being September it wasn't too cool, it can be lovely in the springtime but the pool doesn't really warm up for bathing in the water! It sounds like you made full use of the house and the area so I am really pleased, and you met Philomina too.
Take care and we hope you will visit us again

The house is in Camps Bay which is no more than half an hour's drive from the airport. Once there it is just a short walk to the beach front with all the shops, bars and restaurants that make this area so famous and memorable. Camps Bay is then just a ten minute drive into Cape Town city centre of maybe 15 to the V&A Waterfront, Stellenboch is about half an hour for wine tasting, or Newlands for all the sporting occasions is the same. Cape Point is a little further, south, at 45 min but on the way you pass beautiful Chapmans Peak and Boulders, the home of the Cape's penguins. There are numerous golf courses all over which start at as little as R300 a round, tennis courts in Camps Bay and the western beaches are famous to surfers and windsurfers alike. Its all there, its just a question of getting out and getting on with it! I'm sorry to have removed contact numbers from this website but we have received too many sales calls by leaving on there. Happy to call you back if you enquire.
Other Activities: Table Mountain, Robben Island, cricket, rugby, football world cup, wine tasting
Golf: The nearest and most accessible golf course is Now Mowbray which you passed coming in from the airport and costs just R300. Call in good time and they will accommodate you into 4 balls if necessary.
There are very many other courses to play however!
