From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warmth and friendliness you don't often experience. We were given lots of local information and tips which helped us get the most out of our short time in Cape Town, and anything we needed organised or booked was seen to at a moments notice. If we're ever lucky enough to... More

Tony and I stayed in Oct and could not find fault. On arrival Emmy was extremely helpful; immediately organising the extension of our car hire, with advice to go up table mountain while it was sunny with no wind and late afternoon queues would be minimal (brilliant advice) then to booking our trip to Robben Island. Advice on nearby restaurants... More

We stayed at 5 Camp St for a week in Oct 2014 and loved it. Emmy and her family who run 5 Camp St were great hosts and helped with all sorts of suggestions and bookings on what we should do during our stay. We have kids aged 4 & 7 and had an amazing week, eating at markets, picking... More

5 Camp Street is a beautiful property with old houses with beautiful furniture and gardens. It is close to shops and restaurants (walking distance) and not too far from the waterfront or Table Mountain

Right from the first welcome by Ignette this was a great experience. The units are spacious and clean, and the location ideal: you can walk to shops and restaurants on Kloof St and to the city centre via the delightful Company's Gardens. Emmy's advice is excellent - for example we wouldn't have thought of not going to the Table Mountain... More
