“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Sunset Residence is a great place. It's close by the beach, perfect for surfers and excellent for discovering Cape Town with a simultaneous peaceful accommodation just a bit outside of the city.
It's very clean and the rooms are large with everything you need. Instead of the sea, you can also take a swim in the clean pool.
The owner is a very kind and helpful Italian guy, who you can ask for useful recommendations for SA and Cape Town. I would always love to come back!

It was great to be at Sunset Residence. Extra safe position, 10 minutes driving to down town, very relaxing and, above all, the host is great: if have not made up your mind of the Cape area, just follow his suggestion!!!! Really great value for your money.

My two kids and I had a 11 nights stay from the end of July till the beginning of August. Even though it was in the midst of the South African winter, Sunset Residence kept us nice and warm and in high spirits. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was well kept and well equipped. Daily housekeeping was immaculate.

Our host Fabrizio was so warm and helpful. He made us feel at home immediately the very first moment of contact.

Sunset Beach neighbourhood is approximately 15 minutes away from the Cape Town CBD but the location was absolutely perfect. We felt completely safe all the time. There were guards patrolling the neighbourhood 24/7. We just could not get enough of the South Pole Pizza located just 5 minutes walk from the residence. In that same location, there are also Woolworth Foods, some other restaurants, bar, liquor shop and ATM machine.

The sunset at "Sunset Beach" which was just 10 minutes walk away was absolutely marvellous.

We had a fantastic 2+ month stay at Sunset Residence, whilst on a working holiday in Cape Town. Fabrizio was an excellent host, happy to offer advice when needed or just let us get on with it. The housekeeping girls looked after us extremely well and the apartment was in good condition - if there was anything extra we needed Fabrizio was around to help, from recommending good restaurants, local navigation and borrowing wetsuits! We also enjoyed the house dog!
Sunset Beach is about 10-15 min drive north of the Waterfront, but the apartment is in a very safe area with everything you need just a short walk away. Excellent location and near all major routes for exploring the Western Cape, and less than 1 hour to Stellenbosch for wine-tasting. The main advantage is a fantastic beach within 5 mins walking distance with a great views of the city, and perfect for kite-surfing or windsurfing.
Thank you Fabrizio for a wonderful stay!

We stayed in the 5 bedrooomed house for 4 weeks from 23rd February. Fabrizio and his staff were most helpful and the house and gardens were perfect for us. There were 8 adults and two small children in our party and we had plenty of room and a bathroom per bedroom, 4 of them en-suite. Outside the swimming pool was great and plenty of room to sit and a big braii (BBQ) and outdoor dining area. Fabrizio was always there if we needed information. The place is very conveniently situated for the beach, shops, take-aways and is only a short drive into Cape Town. Plenty of room to store bikes and many cycle paths about. We would most certainly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Cape Town area.

A perfect location to enjoy the sea and the city, without the city traffic in a beautiful and peaceful place in one of the most famous beach of Cape Town.
The Residence is great and Fabrizio and his advices were perfect for my holiday. Thanks to Fabrizio suggestions we visited the most important and exciting attractions of Cape Town area, without the typical stress of the new "big city approach". The Residence is exactly as described and the photos are real. The relaxed atmosphere and the available facilities were a perfect mix for my family (e. g. small swimmingpool for my 3 years old daughter, the fire for perfect dinner for my wife and the big space for my sport equipment). We stayed for 11 nights and Fabrizio helped us in all various aspects of living and approaching the city, the area, the tours and the attractions; he reserved for us places and tickets (e.g. table Mountain cableway), suggesting the best timing and sequence for all our days. The service personnel is available, friendly and the service was more than expected (e.g. for washing machine for our personal dress and for dishwashing). We felt to be at our home. Thanks for all and see You next year.

Room Tip: If travelling with a baby the rooms with a separate sleeping room are better, but Fabrizio will sure...
