“Probably the best-appointed holiday rental kitchen ever :)”
Reviewed March 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A wonderful stay at Apostle and hard to find something to add that has not already been covered in the positive (and well deserved) reviews already!

We have stayed in many self-catering apartments, and along with the 5-star property and care and attention of the hosts, we found the level of equipment and attention to detail in equipping the kitchen and to anticipate the needs of vacationers simply superb. Well done Nada!!

If you are in any doubt on whether to book - just do ti. You will not regret it!

A minor point for Adrian that may make some people's stay even better - if the LED lights outside the second bedroom could be on a motion detector PIR as well as a daylight sensor, it would make the second bedroom a wee bit darker and more comfortable for some who are sensitive to light when sleeping.

“Excellent and Clean”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 for a stay in March 2013

Superb location. Great views of the ocean and Mountains. Within walking distance of the Camps Bay strip with all the restaurants and stores. Upscale suburb of Cape Town. Very comfortable and very clean. Owners are extremely friendly and will help you with anything you need. Highly recommended.

“Great stay, beautiful apartment and fantastic hosts”

We stayed at the villa for about 10 days with our baby and toddler.. The villa is situated in a great spot in Camps Bay, close to the beach, restaurants and a little supermarket.
The view is amazing, the apartment is very clean and well equipped and the hosts are friendly and helpful. I can't think of anything negative and would recommend this place to travellers with young children.

“Charming and relaxing!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Once again we had a wonderful time at the Apostle, Camps Bay. Since our last visit in 2013, the place has been extended with a large terrace with an amazing view on the Atlantic Ocean and the Lion's Head. Apostle is perfect for a relaxing stay for a couple or family. The friendly Funkey family lives next door and is extremely responsive to any request a guest may have.
Great place!

“Spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We had a really wonderful stay at Apostle and it was very comfortable for a famiily with two young boys. The apartment is cleaned daily and the service is generally great - was so nice to arrive and find the fridge stocked with milk, juice and snacks for the kids, and wine for us. We would definitely recommend this apartment.
