Bantry Bay Accommodation
For keen ocean lovers and those in need of the ultimate relaxed getaway, our Bantry Bay accommodation guide might do just the trick. A tiny suburb perched on the narrow strip of land between Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, the guest-houses, hotels and B 'n B's in this area offer a secluded, peaceful stay, away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town's city centre.
Originally named Botany Bay, after a botanical garden landscaped in the area, it underwent a name change after World War 1 and came to its current incarnation as Bantry Bay. Favoured by affluent Cape Town residents for its distinct lack of wind, a significant point given the presence of the howling Cape Doctor in almost all others parts of the city, this small section of Cape Town has much to offer the discerning traveller.
The geographical layout of the suburb means that almost all accommodation in Bantry Bay is set right upon the shoreline, allowing one to enter dreamland aided by the sound of the waves lapping the shore while a gentle sea-breeze cools you in the heat of summer. After waking up from a pleasant nap to the sight of the glistening sea, you might be inspired to stroll southward into the neighbouring suburb of Clifton for a spot of sun-tanning on 1 of the 4 gorgeous Clifton beaches.
In the opposite direction lies Sea Point, a rather livelier suburb. If you'd like to escape your Bantry Bay abode for a convenient meal or pop out for a drink, Sea Point is the place for you.
Perhaps the best thing about Bantry Bay is its proximity to the city centre, without the noise and throng of people that come with it. One can reach the Cape Town City Bowl tourist attractions, restaurants and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in a taxi or rented vehicle within 7 minutes.
Villa Sunshine is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Mother City, tour the nearby winelands, or discover the breath-taking beaches, landscapes and attractions in the area.

Bantry Bay Reviews
A wonderful place to have a seaside holiday, very well positioned for both Seapoint and the Clifton/Hout Bay side. Parking in the narrow streets always a problem, so leave your Range Rover at home !
We will be back...

Bantry Bay is the little sister to Clifton, small and discreet she has all the beauty and views you're looking for in Cape Town! Bantry Bay is quieter and more compact, central and with an unparalleled view you have to go for a walk along Victoria Road!

Beautiful and safe.

The location is quite superb - walking distance to the sea. Quite marvellous. Am looking forward to my next visit to Cape Town and certainly Bantry Bay.
