Situated in the hub of Camps Bay, right across from the beach. You can walk everywhere from here. We unfortunately had a number of pigeons sleeping next to our window, making slleping a bit late impossible. However, the room was spacious and luxurious and offers fair value.

The main bedroom is very nice, the twin bedroom not so inviting. Everything you need is there, from the kitchen utensils,, Patio chairs, extra blankets etc. It is all clean and nice,... More

I stayed 8 days in the 2 bed/2 bath (with my 9 year old son) apt and I have to say that this place exceeded my expectations. The apt is both beach and mountain view and you are a stone throw from the beach. Great locations, great restaurants in the area. The surrounding community is very upscale and security in... More

My husband and I recently had a four day stay here. The location and view were fabulous and the clean room was large, bright and airy. The small kitchen was well equipped (full cooker and fridge and good mix of pots, crockery and utensils) and let us cook the type of simple breakfasts and lunches we had planned. Having a... More

Place on the bay is a great location with friendly staff. Right on the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and shops. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxed holiday on the beach in beautiful Cape Town. I will definitely be back!

This was the first stop of our holiday and was perfect as a base to explore Cape Town and the area. We had a hire car and so having secure parking was a real bonus and the rooms were large and had everything we could want or need in the kitchenette. Although the bathroom was a bit 'tired' it worked... More

In a fantastic position on the main Camps Bay action strip opposite the beach with views from all apartments it seems. Good sized rooms. Secure parking. A very well equipped little kitchen for longer stays & still a decent stay but this place could be so much more with some TLC from more hands on owners. Typical of places which... More
