Emirates car dropped us here from Cape Town Airport; about an hour and a half. Very spacious rom with catering facilities which were not used. Excellent location close to all amenities. Had difficulty with a taxi to our next destination and Lisa was most helpful in arranging transportation.

Because Ivy apartments are located in the heart of the town, we never had to drive anywhere to experience the joy of the town. The facilities in the apartment for self atering are excellent. It is too expensive to stay there and not follow the selfcatering route. So make use of the kitchen! The decor is luxurious. The private safe... More

The Ivy was more than I could have expected. The accommodation was 1st class plus. Spotless, elegantly furnished with every thing you would ever need. Stunning views off the back patio. Although right in the heart of town it was quiet but well placed for restaurants, bars, shops etc. I would definitely recommend it as a fantastic holiday experience and... More

We stayed 2 nights in Fanschoek and the Ivy was a good choice. Very nice appartement with kitchen, bedroom, terrace and free parking. The bathroom was a little on the small side but manageable for a short stay. Welcoming was nice, service good and friendly. Can reccommend.

They are a very good, quite luxurious apartment, for very good value (when compared with akadamie street where we stayed a few years back which is lovely but a touch pricey) The apartment itself is...

These apartments are outstanding – beautifully furnished and decorated with special attention to detail on decor and colour co-ordination, giving the apartments a 5-star upmarket feel, as well as an incredibly warm homely one. The units are spotlessly clean with no maintenance issues at all. The linen is of top quality with thick fluffy towels, beautiful white gowns and super... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, a luxurious and stunning apartment. Full of the comforts of home and even a Nespresso machine! The apartment block is in the heart of the town and walking distance to the wine tram station. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Ivy Apartments and will definitely go back. I was disappointed with the management,... More

We stayed for two nights in a lovely, spacious duplex apartment. Finished to the highest standard, and very centrally located. The upper bedroom was too hot to sleep in unfortunately due to a very hot spell of weather, even with the air conditioning on full, but luckliy we had the downstairs bedroom to sleep in which was much cooler (there...

On arrival Saturday 27th approx 13:00 were informed that the apartment wasn't available it was rented out. We were offered #7 apartment or our money back. We had to... More
