I booked 2 nights here for when we arrived in South Africa for our very first time. I wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and it didn't disappoint.
Our 2 bedroom apartment was huge, and spotlessly clean. It was a bit of a strange check-in though, having to drive into an underground car park. The directions on the web sight from the airport were really easy to follow.
The views from both the front and back were amazing, but due to the weather we couldn't enjoy them to their full extent.
As with any apartment, you need to source some supplies, and there is nothing within easy walking distance. We were directed to the water front to a "pick 'n' pay" which is very small and limited in selection, so if you're planning to cook, you will need to plan a visit to a larger store outside of Camps Bay. We did discover another small shop on the way down the hill, next to the Hussar Grill. A meal at the Hussar Grill is an absolute must, fantastic food.
