For the price bracket that this apartment is in, it offers amazing value, given the location, the facilities, and the level of comfort. It is within walking distance off all the restaurants in the Camps Bay area. And, in turn, the general location of Camps Bay is central to everywhere that tourists want to go on the peninsula, whether up... More

Had a lovely stay in one of Mark's apartments (C). Charming and simple - and the GARDEN - I loved it. So green, like a jungle - a lot of birds - the pool was just wonderful when coming back in the afternoon. This is a beautiful place if you like the charming hippielook - the positive way.

Based on its location, its probably the cheapest accommodation you can find within the posh camps bay area. Like I said in the title, it would be ideal for backpackers and students or if you are 'naturalists'. Owner Mark is a lovely person and all the housekeepers are nice people. If you go around the neighbourhood you will notice they... More

Needed 4 keys to get into the apartment. Not used to security like this. We stuck with the place and didnt let it get us down... More

The location near the Camps Bay is brilliant, the area is safe (rich) and with easy reach to splendid restaurants and several beautiful beaches suitable both for adults and smaller children. The guesthouse has a swimmingpool in a cosy environment with hammocks and a lovely garden and... More

It was winter and the weather was not that great at all but we cozied up in the sitting-living area in front of the fire and chilled. It's a welcoming place. Taking a hot shower in the icy... More

We stayed at Camps Bay Glen for a week and a half (way too short) and had a great time there. It's a safe place with excellent view. There is a shop close by (10 minute walk) where you can get a nice breakfast. Table mountain, the beach, lions head and many more interesting things are also very close (by... More

I stayed at Camps Bay Glen studio B for a couple of nights in April whilst traveling with a couple of friends and really enjoyed it. The whole place is decorated in a very chilled, natural but uplifting way reflecting Mark's (the owner) deep connection with all things nature-related. It was too cold then for a dip in the pool...
