“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Believe all the great reviews about the house, rooms and most especially the wonderful hosts - Jennifer and Beach (David). It was like visiting friends ... they made you feel so very welcome and spent such quality time getting to know you and ask about your day. We also had the great fortune of residing in the same area of California that Beach use to live so we had that in common and were able to share stories of local places etc... I cannot stess enough what a special B&B this is and how fortunate we were to spend our last 3 days in SA here. We hope to see them again when they travel to the States next year! Thank you Jennifer and David for being the perfect couple to run this lovely B&B. We hope to return one day and share more stories and a glass of wine! Cheers!

We knew from the moment we parked our car at Boutique 10 and met our lovely hosts, Beach & Jennifer that this was the place to stay in Cape Town. If you are looking for stunning sunsets, beautiful large rooms with views of the ocean when you wake up, warm friendly happy hosts then dont look any further!

Jennifer & Beach made us part of their home and life without being intrusive for the 5 days we stayed there. At the end of each day out and about exploring Cape Town, we were greeted with their smiling faces, a glass of red in hand sitting at the kitchen table telling them about our day.

Every morning we had breakfast waiting for us downstairs - fresh fruit & yoghurt, cereal, wonderful coffee, fresh juice and Natasha will cook you an omelete, eggs, bacon if you like. Lovely Natasha will even wash and dry your clothes at no extra cost.

Anything you want to know about where to go, where to eat, history or culture they are a wealth of information. Perfectly located on the side of the hill looking over beautiful Camps Bay, minutes away from the beach, shops, cafes, restaurants and Table Top Mountain itself.

Everyday I had to pinch myself at how lucky I was to be staying in this wonderful B & B. There are only 4 bedrooms so you dont feel like you are staying in a hotel where it becomes very impersonal. We stayed in the Ocean room upstairs. Beds are really comfortable with egyptian sheets and goosedown covers. Huge living area downstairs with fireplace, kitchen and balcony with pool overlooking the incredible views of Camps Bay. Have I mentioned the views this place has??? You also have access to free wifi.

You can always find somewhere to stay that has a beautiful location, but to find this as well as 2 hosts who you feel like you have know for years, who are warm, friendly and love life- this is what makes Boutique 10 for what it is - AMAZING!

Thank you for sharing this with us. It was an unforgettable 5 days.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Ocean Room, which is located upstairs.

You'll walk in the door, and immediately be saying to yourself (and to your new husband/wife, if you're doing as we did!) this is exactly how we all shoudl live - concertina doors all folded back, views out across Camps Bay, open plan living, perfect. Just need a quick cold beer, or go for the honesty bar and take on a bottle of something sparkling and South African. You'll love this place. We stayed for just two nights, but wish we'd have stayed longer.

Sure, you'll read some good reviews of other places. Those places will be good, I'm sure. But this place has soul. You'll love it.

I do not usually write a review but had to for this place as it is definitely the place to be in Camps Bay – this is not one of the cheapest place but what you pay for is completely idyllic - I cannot see how anyone will be disappointed with this place and the fabulous views that you will have whilst enjoying a great breakfast to the views as the sun is going down with a glass or whatever you like from the well stocked bar. The room we stayed in (Ocean View) was fantastic, the bed was very comfortable and had a great bathroom and probably the best view from any of the rooms. At the time we stayed we also had the balcony that is adjoining very much to ourselves to enjoy the views and sunshine, with an occasional trip downstairs for a beer and quick dip in the pool. Now we come to the hosts, Jennifer and Beach who basically put the icing on the cake, they are the friendliest most welcoming hosts you could meet, from organising the best restaurant tables either in Camps Bay or the V&A to providing you with a schedule for your sightseeing tours. You will not be disappointed with this place – we will definitely be going back

Stunning boutique guesthouse. Great relaxed shabby chic feel to the place, only 4 bedrooms, massive open plan downstairs living area, you can use the lounge, kitchen and balcony where you breakfast as if it's your own home... Incred views across the bay. 10 min walk down to camps bay, or a 2 min drive - about 50 rand in a taxi. Free wifi, superb breakfasts - cooked options, great coffee and fresh juices, fresh cheese and meats etc, great bread - all with some of the best views over the bay. We stayed in one of the larger upstairs rooms, oceans view, which is slightly smaller than lions head which is also upstairs but has a bigger bathroom - pick where your priorities lie I guess! Also, we had the ocean view from our bed which was wonderful, and you don't in lions head. The two downstairs rooms are smaller - but slightly cheaper, and they don't have the balcony that the 2 upstairs rooms share - but theres a big balcony in the living area where you can have a drink/hang out on a nice eve. The rooms have everything you'd need, awesome bed, again its comfy shabby chic, cool individ finds everywhere - not super modern luxe if you know what I mean, thats not the style, lovely toiletries, and the girls who clean the room are excellent. Good free wifi and top honesty bar. Pool is just a plunge pool. Jennifer and Beach are great, fun, chilled hosts. Complimen water would have been appreciated and some info in the room - like taxi numbers/resto and bar recomms/how to work the tv info etc and coded entry for the gate and front door would have been tons better than the tricky door key - other than that pretty faultless!

We had a lovely stay at Boutique@10. We were able to check in early and were amazed by the beautiful views. Our friend occupied the room downstairs which she loved and we had one upstairs that was full of light and huge. The linen and the beds were so comfy we asked where they came from. Great breakfast, free Internet and lovely host, we couldn't have asked for more.

Staying at Boutique @10 was the absolute best decision we made during our vacation in Cape Town. The website does not do it justice, but mark my words: this place is breathtaking. The house itself is gorgeously designed and aside from Table Mountain, you will not find a better view anywhere in Camps Bay.The deck is like a private haven for breakfast, lounging by the pool (it’s protected from the wind) or cocktails at sunset. Aside from the stunning location, the rooms are large and luxurious and done with impeccable, impeccable taste. The continental breakfast is delicious and corners have not been cut when it comes to providing the best quality orange juice, coffee, and bread (not to mention that the omelettes are perfection!) And as if all this wasn’t enough, the hosts, Dave and Jennifer – are the friendliest, most welcoming couple you could ask for. They live on the premises and are more than ready to help you with anything – no request to large or too small. We loved it here so much that after we said our goodbyes – 2 days later we decided to change our plans and return so we could spend our last nights in such a magical place. Book your stay now – you won’t regret it!

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent - large, well- appointed, great views and comfortable beds.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Boutique at 10 is unique accommodation located on the edge of Camps Bay's central ravine. We are perfectly centered above Camps Bay Beach, with full view of the white beach sands being swept clean by the blue Atlantic Ocean. All this coupled with uninterrupted panoramic views of the coastal landscape and ocean, from north to south, as far as the eye can see, yet only a 10-15 minute walk down to Camps Bay Beach and its famous restaurant strip.Positioned in the heart of Camps Bay on the Atlantic Seaboard, the Boutique is just a 5 minute drive to the Table Mountain Cable Car Station, 10 minute drive to Cape Town CBD and V&A Waterfront, 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and a leisurely and scenic drive to the Cape of Good Hope, the Cape Wine lands and the many beautiful golf courses that the Cape has to offer.The boutique style villa, a blend of Swiss chalet and beach cottage, originally built in 1955 and remodeled 35 years later by its second and current owners, David Beach and Jennifer, features 4 spacious and ocean-facing guest suites. The Boutique features an open and spacious design, which leans towards old school, with a variety of rich woods, french doors, large arched windows, brass wall lamps and the original wrought-iron balustrade which were, with great care, removed from the historical Sea Point President Hotel, that was demolished back in the early '90s.To ensure guests comfort, all suites, which are serviced daily, include 32-40 inch LCD flat screens, complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity, air-conditioning for room climate control, electronic safes, hair dryers, tea and coffee trays and en-suites with shower and/or bath. Three of the guest suites feature beds that can be made into two singles or a king, while the Ocean Suite offers a stylish, king-size wooden sleigh bed, designed and hand crafted by a good friend. All are draped in pure white linen and splashed with colourful hand painted throws, extra length pillows, scatter cushions and are dressed with goose down duvets and flat sheets.Sliding glass doors lead to a large common outdoor balcony for the Ocean and Lions Head Suites on the upper level. The Deck Suite opens up to the main pool deck and the Beach Suite has a private entrance and private garden patio. Both are located on the main level of the house and can accommodate a third single bed upon request.A healthy breakfast of coffee or tea, fresh juice, toast and cereals, eggs, cold meats, cheese, yoghurt and seasonal fruit, is served in the open plan guest lounge which flows onto the main wooden pool deck making a spacious and inviting area in which to eat and lounge. Five large double doors open up from the lounge onto the pool deck to allow nature's beauty, the fresh ocean breeze and the sounds of birds to blend into the essence of pleasure and relaxation which is Boutique at 10.The popular guest lounge, with the original stone wall and rustic fireplace, warms the body on cool evenings ... while a glass of Cape wine warms the soul ...You may just never want to leave ... ... more   less
