After travelling the whole day we arrived at this Luxury Self catering apartment. The business is not owner run and we were received by a somewhat unhappy looking Manageress showing us to our Apartment, and then disappearing without explaining how things work. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, however they are not serviced. We noticed that no complimentary soap/coffee or... More

The unit is spacious, neat and equipped with everything needed as a self catering apartment. It is also conveniently situated close to shops where necessities can be obtained. A definite stay for us in future.

We were so glad we found this excellent family accommodation after our experience at the previous guest house where we were to stay. Everything you need with children, escpesially: SPACE. Good quality furniture. It will be super during the summer to be in the garden.

This place is definitely a must. I'm between having sold my home and moving to another country so needed a place to stay for my kids and myself. The owners were extremely accommodating to serve my needs, the service is friendly and the apartments are exceptionally spacious. The fact that there is DSTV, Wi-Fi, cleaning of the apartment and weekly... More

Finally!! A fabulous place that offers everything it promises. We have certainly stayed at a good few places that look nothing like what they present on their websites and this is the exclusion. Can't wait to return and spend a good few nights - it is a home away from home offering all the luxuries, privacy and easy access one... More

On my nearly two-week trip to South Africa I had the luck to have a large and luxurious apartment (the tower apartment with two floors) for myself. The location of the apartment was the ideal starting point for my tours through the Westen Cape (only 20 minutes from the airport, close to the N2 and not far away from Stellenbosch/the... More

Comfortable, great price , convenient location. If I came to South Africa again I would use your accommodation. Clean bathroom,kitchen and lovely outdoor settings. Safety precautions were good. I will be recommending your apartments to friends in Australia and South Africa should they need accommodation in your area in the future. Thanks for being accommodating and prompt with your response... More

The publicity is misleading. The site is split on opposite sides of a busy road and 2 electronic security gates. We made a single booking for 2 apartments and found ourselves on opposite sides of the road, very difficult. The apartment was spacious, but some of the furniture is shabby and the equipment is of poor quality. Our electric oven/hob... More

I was a little bit worried after reading all the recent reviews on trip advisor once we had already made the booking at smart stay. We were a group of 4 ladies that needed mid week accommodation as we were attending an event in Somerset West over a period of 2 days. I can agree that the unit did not... More
