“Beautiful Apartment - excellent host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

My daughter and I were staying at Atlantic Seaview Apartments in March. Sindre made us feel really welcome. We loved our apartment - it had everything we needed. The property is located in upper Camps Bay in a quite road and offers the most amazing sea view. The pool is great as well and the garden well maintained. I really wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely come back again.

My family was travelling to Cape Town for 2 weeks in March 2013, we booked a 3 bedroom sea view apartment. The biggest disappointment was that the apartment is actually 2 bedrooms with a 3rd accessible outside via a deck - completely unsuitable for children. The apartment claims to be self catering but the kitchen is the same size as one of the hugely slippery showers. There is limited water pressure and showers were a tedious affair as we had to wait five minutes for enough water to rise out the shampoo. Can't fault the location but the apartment is a definite no-no for families.

ASACT, Owner at Atlantic-Seaview Apartments, responded to this review, April 15, 2013
I got surprised when I read your review. You booked through an agent, and you informed the agent that you'll be only adults. I was therefore taken by astonishment when you arrived with 2 small children. According to the agent was there never any mention of children prior to or after the booking was confirmed. I therefore experience that your bad review is based on this invidious situation, which is unfair.

No one has complained about the water pressure during the 6 years I had the apartment. To be sure, I asked the people that stay there now, and they informed that it is not a problem. Furthermore, you point out that the showers are slippery. None of the showers are slippery, since all the tiles in both of the showers are cut in small pieces by 10 x 10 cm. This is done to prevent anyone to slide in the showers. Your comments are therefore inaccurate to put it discreet.

The 3rd bedroom is 3 meter away from the apartment at the other side of the veranda. It is naturally not suitable for 2 or 5 years children like yours. That is also why I avoid to have small children in that apartment, especially if someone has to sleep in the 3rd bedroom. However, "you shoot the pianist". I cannot be blamed for this lamentable situation, based on the simple fact that you booked through an agent, and informed that you were only coming adults. It is therefore very unfair to allege: "the apartment is definite a no - no for families". On the contrary, a lots of families are very pleased with the 3rd bedroom. It gives family members more distance and freedom, since the bedrooms are not so close to each other as normal. I have a family living there for a week now, and 2 of the daughters in that family are totally happy with the 3rd bedroom solution.

You wanted to get a total refund after the first night, according to your mail to the agent. The agent were not able to find a replacement apartment, since it was Easter. The agent could not refund any funds either based on the foregoing. In light of this do I experience that your review is motivated by your frustrations in this regards.

Please inform next time to your agent, or guest house if you come with only adults, or smaller children. This to avoid miscommunication for all affected parts. I find your bad review inconsiderate in the damage it gives to one’s business. I have to ask some previous customers to come up with some reviews now - hopefully to get more balance to your tendentious review. It feels unpleasant for me to ask for reviews, since I normally don't do it.

Best regards

Sindre Koppang

My friends and I were staying in Cape Town as part of a wedding party. There were 3 couples and we stayed in the 3bedroom Seaview apartment which was just as the website and owner had described. The apartment had everything we needed and amazing views of the Indian Ocean and Table Mountain. The guest rooms were more than adequate as were the two bathrooms. The apartment was located only a 10 min drive to Camps Bay, a great bustling social area and beautiful beaches. I would suggest hiring a car as this is most practical. However its easy to also book taxis. The contact with the owner before the trip was very informative and helpful. This would definitely be recommended for couples, friends and families..

The apartments are just lovely. The views from the living room and two double bedrooms are just stunning. We stayed in the winter and the apartments were very good value for money. We would definately stay there again.

We stayed in the Seaview Apartment and one bedroom is accessed across the balcony with no bathroom facilities of it's own. Tricky if you want to secure the main Apartment at night, as with patio doors there is no external access from the balcony for the seperate bedroom.

A little too far to walk into Camps Bay each evening, but plenty of parking when you arrive by car.

This place has a lovely setting in Camps Bay backed by Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles. The Sea view - and mountain view - is breathtaking from both the Oceanview and Gardenview apartments where I stayed twice. The apartments are practical and stylish and they have an exciting and richly diverse art collection to enjoy for every traveller to visit. I simply love it all, but the pool could be more elegant, since it is a bit out of style. Me and my family felt safe during the whole stay and the service was excellent. We will not hesitate to recommend Atlantic-Seaview Apartments, which we never wanted to leave. We will be back!
