Good location close to Camps Bay beach and restaurants (3mns walk), large rooms, clean, good bed, terrasse ok. Shared kitchen and diner area downstairs usefull. Not contemporary design furnitures however, not very new furbishing either, little bit outdated but not too bad. Not direct view on the sea, but still a nice view . Swimming pool too small to be...

We stayed in the Beachside Penthouse for a week as a family. The location was perfect (few minutes walk from camps bay main road/beach etc.) and Gift (the manager) was helpful, friendly and available for us. However, we were very disappointed with the property itself, especially as the website promises "luxury", "modern", "5 star accommodation". We are originally from Cape... More

Great location only 2 mins walk to Camps Bay beach and all transport options. Room was perfectly good, facilities are great for a stay where you are not in your room or house all day. Kitchen is good and offers all you need. Definitely the best bit of the stay was the service. Manager Gift is very efficient and helpful.... More

We stayed in Beachside for 4 nights in March 2014 as part of a 3 week tour of SA. Pros - Superb location. Camps Bay is defo the best spot to stay in Capetown with its beach, cafes, bars, safe atmosphere and only a short hop into V&A, Capetown central and cable car to Table Top mountain. Beachside is just... More

Fantastic location and great views. Literally a 3 minute walk to Camps bay beach. It does need some upkeep though as it was showing signs of wear and tear. The room service was good except for the one day that they forgot to refill the coffee and milk. Safety was a concern as the bathroom window did not close. All... More

Last weekend I had the opportunity to stay at and review a beautiful seaside villa in Camps Bay called Beachside. It actually is not too far from my own apartment but even 2 days away from home can feel like a holiday! I was told that I would be staying on the top floor, The Penthouse, and would have the...

I stayed there for three nights and will definitely be going back very soon. I came there to "find" myself, and I found a home away from home too. Thank you Elizabeth and Gift. If you are looking for a breath-taking place to stay, visit Beachside,14 Central Drive. See you soon.

Just 2 blocks from the beach in a safe neighborhood. Friendly staff. Guests have use of a large kitchen and patio area. Some excellent restaurants/bars within walking distance. We want to come back to Cape Town.

The staff here and the standard of the care they offer is outstanding. the Venue itself is set away from the main road so it is quiet and relaxing yet close enough to walk to the beach! The manager (Gift) is well presented, articulate, kind and very professional.
