“Identical to the photos”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is probably the best rented apartment I have ever stayed in.

Sharon greeted us on arrival, with a bottle of bubbly and chilled lemon water, those little touches, kick start a very good impression. They helped organise activities such as wine tours and massages with minimal ease.

The house was very well equipped and very comfortable but could warrant a clothes horse or dryer as we were drying washing everywhere were feasible around the house. Other minor changes I would suggest is the provision of oven gloves and an auxiliary cable as the iphone4 connection on the music system is a bit out of date. Apart from these minor items, the attention to detail within the design of the penthouse was spectacular including European electrical sockets!

I honestly don't think the plunge pool was that cold and have swam in colder. Its a lovely addition to the apartment.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone as its exactly as displayed in the photos which is very rare these days. I hope to return to lion's view one day soon.

Top tip for visiting local restaurants (which is a must). SQ means subject to quotation, so don't get stung like I did and enquire regarding prices prior to ordering!

Reviewed April 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Excellent stay in Camps bay.
Groceries done on arrival. Warm welcome. Waking up with view On lions head. Spacious enough for a family. Quiet street. Feeling at home in a different country.

“Easter with the family”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Had a wonderful time with the family and the view!! Spectacular house and everything worked well. Thank you - we hope to be back soon.

The view of Lions head is great and to see the mist rolling into the bay is gorgeous. Also great access to the beaches and down to the waterfront for dinners / drinks / running etc.

“Would definitely stay again, lovely”
Reviewed October 31, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Great little apartment, plenty of room for four. Excellent housekeeping daily.

Great location just ten minutes from front, beach, bars etc. Plunge pool very cold but lovely. Could just do with stronger WiFi.

“Wonderful Apartment in Camps Bay!”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our stay in Lion's View was amazing! The apartment was perfect for our small group of two couples. Restaurants, bars, shopping and the beach were all within a 5 minute walk. Elize, the apartment manager was extremely accommodating and provided us with every amenity and service requested. If you are planning a trip to Cape Town for a week or more, Lion's View will exceed your expectations far beyond the experience of a hotel. Thank you Elize and Moses for a memorable experience that will last a lifetime.
