The Blinkwater Villa for the period:

Arriving:      _____________     

Departing:      _____________

Estimated Arrival time _____________(please provide)

Villa address: 13 Blinkwater road, Camps Bay, Cape Town



A copy of the ID or passport for each guest will be emailed to prior to arrival.



To confirm a booking, we require 50% of the total property rental cost. No booking agreement exists between us until we have received this amount plus the signing of this agreement. There is a minimum stay policy of three (3) nights during the year and seven (7) nights in the December-January peak period.



The remaining balance must be paid by the due date, which is at least four (4) weeks before your arrival. If the balance has not been paid by the required date, we shall be entitled to cancel your booking and retain the full deposit. If your booking is only made within four (4) weeks of your arrival, you will be required to pay the full rental payment at the time of the booking unless otherwise agreed and indicated by us.





We require a security or breakage deposit of R 15,000 paid 10 (ten)days before arrival. The full amount (less the cost for any damages / breakages) will be refunded again 3 days after departure the amount and payment process will be confirmed during the booking process.

Please note that an additional 10% admin fee will be charged in addition to the cost of the repairs or replacements. The security deposit will be held against the cost of any damage to the property or its contents, and any breakages or loss of keys and remote controls for any damages or loss of household contents you might incur during your stay.



Cleaning is included in the stay from Monday to Saturday between 9am to 4pm.

Sundays and public holidays are by prior arrangement only and at an additional charge of R600 per day. The cleaning service does not extend to personal laundry and cooking.

Should this be required, this is at your own risk, and please arrange directly with the management at an agreed rate.



The rental cost includes electricity and water consumption, council rates and levies, satellite TV, uncapped fibre internet, pool cleaning and garden service. Linen, bath towels and beach towels, hairdryers, shampoo, hair conditioner and liquid bath soaps are provided.



Check in time is between 2pm to 7pm on the day of arrival and check out time is between 10am and 11am on the day of departure. We will try to accommodate any reasonable request for an early check-in or late departure, but this cannot be guaranteed. Management may ask you for an additional fee payment to secure your early arrival or late departure. If this is important to you, please request this prior to booking. There will be an extra late arrival and early departure fee should your arrival or departure time be between 7pm and 7am – this is payable, in cash, to the person who will be checking you into the property.





If you wish to cancel the booking, any of the guests who signed this agreement, must do so by notifying us in writing via email. You have two options regarding a cancellation:

Option 1: Refund

  • An admin fee of 15% of the total booking value will be retained.
  • If cancellation notification is received less than 2 weeks before arrival there will be no refund.
  • Refund will be done via the same payment channel it has been received.

Option 2: Using the funds paid towards a future booking

  • Only one amendment to travel dates may be made.
  • The next arrival date may not exceed the original arrival date by more than one year.
  • All monies paid towards the original booking will be used to pay towards the next booking total cost.
  • The value of the future booking may not be less than the value of the first booking.
  • All future dates will be subject to availability.
  • You may also move the booking to any other property under Camps Bay Views.
  • If cancellation notification is received less than 5 days before arrival this option is no longer available.



It is very unlikely that we will have to make any changes to arrangements once these have been confirmed. If this does happen, we will let you know as soon as possible.

If, for any reason we are unable to provide you with the property you have booked, we will cancel the booking, refund the full amount paid to us for the property and we will work diligently, and at no cost to you, to assist in finding a reasonably similar property as substitute.

Regardless of whether a substitution property is found, we will not be liable for cancellation charges for travel arrangements or any further claims by you or anyone else in your party.

For the avoidance of doubt, in no event whatsoever and regardless of cause, shall the Agent or the Owner(s) of this property, or any other party associated with this rental transaction, have any liability for any cause whatsoever more than the amount that has been paid by renter under this booking agreement except as otherwise specifically required by Law.



The Blinkwater Villa has its own water and electricity supply during restricted times. However, there may be water restrictions in place during your stay, we ask that you adhere to these restrictions.

You will find more information on how to do it inside the property. We also ask you to assist us in adhering to these water restrictions as our guests. In recent years, from time to time, South Africa has experienced electricity supply interruptions (referred to as Load Shedding).

It occurs when the supply from the national grid is placed under strain. When this happens, the national electricity provider typically switches off all electrical supply (remotely) for a short period of time. If this happens, it occurs according to a published schedule. Typically, the electrical supply is off for no longer than 150 minutes at a time, but this is not guaranteed.

Unfortunately, this is not something we can control, and we ask that you keep all your electronics fully charged and bring some extra batteries with you. Please note that we will not issue any refunds due to these possible inconveniences nor do we accept any responsibility for damage to any electronic equipment, suffered because of such load shedding.



This property is not 100% child friendly and the issues of concern for guests with younger children are steep drops from the patios, open stairs between the two levels and an unfenced pool without pool cover. Guests staying with children do so at their own risk and are urged to take all due care and attention during their stay. We do not accept any responsibility for any injuries suffered on this property.



The pool is to be used at your own risk. We do not accept any responsibility for any injuries or death suffered in or around the swimming pool. It is not supervised nor equipped with safety net or a fence. It is not heated so is only suitable for summer swimming. This pool is cleaned every second week and while we will endeavour to arrange additional cleaning service if required during your stay (excluding Sundays and public holidays) we cannot always guarantee that the pool will remain completely clean during periods of extreme weather conditions. This pool may not be in use during extreme drought conditions.





The wireless internet facility is free and uncapped / unlimited. It is at the fastest speed we currently have available in South Africa and may seem slow to you coming from a more first world country.



Please note that this is a double story house with stairs leading from the street level to the front door. The main living area, pool and two bedrooms are on one level with 2 bedrooms on the upper level.



We make use of the services of professional contractors for maintenance. They have a regular visit routine, and the housekeeper or management company will be able to give you details of the days they are due. These services are in place to make sure the property stays in the good condition our guests have come to appreciate and return to for their holiday. The days for service are all pre-arranged and cannot be changed. Should you refuse them access, they will charge us a cancellation fee, and we will therefore deduct this from your breakage deposit. Your cooperation is therefore much appreciated.



Only those persons who signed this agreement may use the property and under no circumstance may the total number of people sleeping on the property exceed the maximum number stipulated in this agreement. We are entitled to request you and your party to vacate the property if this rule is not complied with.


  • The property is a private residence in a quiet family suburb with strict Municipal Bylaws always applying to the conduct of residents within the property and that no noise or disturbance of the neighbourhood at any time of the day or night is allowed, nor any criminal conduct of any nature whatsoever. This includes but is not limited to noise from vehicles in the road, shouting in the street and from the property, as well as music (especially BASE sounds) loud enough to be heard by neighbours.
  • You may not consume, nor allow any guest of yours to consume, any illegal drugs or excessive amounts of alcohol on the property. You herewith grant your personal permission for Blinkwater Villa Management to authorise an inspection at the property, either in person or by an appointed security company, at any given time during your stay at the property, in the event of any reasonable suspicion that you are contravening the terms of your stay.
  • This is a non-smoking property, and you are kindly requested to refrain from smoking inside the rented premises. Ashtrays are provided for outside use so please do not litter the garden with cigarette butts.
  • Please note that Hookah pipes are strictly prohibited, both inside and outside the property. Should you decide to smoke inside the property, your breakage deposit will cover all charges for the air/furniture cleansing company as well as any burn marks on furniture or floor coverings. Should we not have had enough time to attend to this before the next arrival, you will also be charged for any refunds we have to give the next guests to ease their discomfort.
  • The property may only, and exclusively, be used for accommodation purposes and no event or party is allowed on the property without prior written agreement from Blinkwater Villa Management. This includes but is not limited to, the hiring of a private chef, event planners, DJ, musicians, and entertainers.
  • A private security company appointed by Blinkwater Villa Management may be patrolling the grounds during my stay. If the reason for this is due to excessive noise and bad behaviour, you will be responsible for the costs thereof.



It is your responsibility, and that of each of the guests who signed this agreement.

  • to pay for any losses or damages to the property or premises, however caused (reasonable wear and tear excluded)
  • to take good care of the property and leave it in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the rental period
  • to permit the property manager reasonable access to the property not to part with any possession of the property, or share it, anyone other than with guests who signed this agreement and not to cause an annoyance or become a nuisance to occupant of adjoining premises as outlined in paragraph 14 above.
  • to ensure that each person staying on the property or any guest or visitors visiting the property during your stay, adhere to all Municipal bylaws.

NB: It is the responsibility of the person who signed this agreement to ensure that the alarm is set, and all exteriors doors and windows are closed every time the property is left unoccupied or when retiring for the night. Should there be a burglary and the alarm are not set, you will be held responsible for all replacement and repair costs.

Due to the possibility of high velocity winds and unexpected rain in Cape Town, it is imperative that the glass doors and windows are secured properly when retiring or when leaving the premises as well as any outdoor cushions that must be stored inside. They tend to fly away in the wind, and you will be held responsible if they are blown away.



The property descriptions used on our web site or otherwise provided to you are made in good faith and are believed to be an accurate presentation.



If you have any complaints and problems during your stay, please let us know as soon as possible so that they can be remedied. However, we are not responsible for issues out of our control such as failure of the water supply, electricity, telephone and internet services, pool filtration, or any of the appliances. We also do not have control over building works on neighbouring villas nor are we told before the time of intention to build. We will do our best to resolve any problems as soon as possible once notified of them. We must stress the importance of bringing complaints or problems to our attention as soon as possible during your stay as we cannot be expected to help if you only notify us following your departure. If you vacate the property without our notification during the rental period, you will lose any rights you might otherwise have had to compensation.
