Camps Bay with Kids 11 & 9


I am looking for a GOOD hotel or apartment / villa for a 5 night stay in December 2010, for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids.

The apartment / villas I have found are either shabby or really expensive. Can anyone recommend?

Hi Pinklotte, what do you regard as expensive? What is you budget?

Camps bay is an seriously upmarket area for a holiday. You could compare it to the French Riviera.

Cheaper (still very scenic) areas are Fish hoek, Hout bay or Simonstown.

Also remember that after December 16th is Peak Premium Season for about four weeks during the South African school holidays. Half of Johannesburg and Pretoria seem to be down here in the Cape! Peak Season prices, often plus a hefty surcharge. Many apartment owners will also want a one week minimum rent at this time.

A self-catering unit will cost less than a hotel. You can compare prices and location on www.cybercapetown.com.

Tripadvisor has a reasonable listing of properties in Camps Bay. Take a look at http://www.tripadvisor.com/VacationRentals.
