This was my 5th stay in Camps Bay Ridge Guest House - in 4 years... Do I need to say more?
Possibly I should:
I was recommended to this place by a good friend and thought, ok, give it a try - but what I have experienced so far was by far above my expectations. I felt at home instantly as Joerg is such a great host that welcomes you in such a friendly and nice way that you just think "yes" that is where I want to be.
The guesthouse is stunningly located in the villa area of Camps Bay, with Table Mountain in your back, Lion's head to your right, the Twelve Apostels to your left and then, when you are on your balcony at sunset you overlook the whole bay... Beautiful and most romantic moments.
A lush tropical garden and the recently build mexian style "Palapa" together wich a pool with a view make this stay just perfect.
The service starts with a very special breakfast in the morning, with all guests on one huge table - chatting, exchanging experiences, fresh-to-order prepared eggs, fruits, joghurt and cereals, cold platters from his special German butcher and Joerg, giving recommendations of what to do for the day - or not, because of the weather and wind... He is so helpfuld with restaurant and go-out-tips (and the bookings as well, which you should do especially in high season) that you will surely enjoy.
Just in case you are feeling more like being lazy or just enjoy - then try out the massage of Sylvia - this is by far the best treatment I have ever had in my life time - and it is very reasonable in price in addition.
I have meanwhile stayed in all of the rooms and need to say - each of it has a charme of its own. All are having stunning views (even from the bathrooms, where little windows or "breaks through the wall" make sure that you don't miss a minute of the gorgous views) to all the special landscape as well as the sunset in the evenings.
I have travelled all of my life to various regions and have to say - my favourite place is South Africa - the climate, the people - and knowing a place like Camps Bay Ridge where I will come back very soon.
