Stayed here in march. We booked online after looking at their website which had beautiful pictures and made the place look really nice and modern. It was rated 4 stars by the tourism centre as well. This is not 4 star accommodation. This is budget. The website makes it look a lot nicer than it is. The rooms are dirty. If you walked bare foot in your room your feet would be black. The beds were old and uncomfortable. There were no mattress protectors on the bed. In our room the bathroom window opened to the main passage way. But there was no curtain. U had to get my husband to hold up a towel when I showered. The walls were very thin and you could hear everything from the rooms next door. It was very noisy.

Security was not good. We left our key and just snuck in behind another car. I
South Africa you need to stay in places that are safe and secure. Not places like this. Did not feel safe here.

We stayed one night and then decided to look for alternative accommodation. We found a great place in camps bay called The Glen. It was stunning.

When we went to check out early the manager/owner was incredibly rude. He would not refund us saying we had booked for 5 nights. We understood and said that's fine we are still leaving. He said if he leased our rooms out again he would then refund us. We called everyday to see if they had rented the rooms out. The receptionist told us they had been rented and the place was full. So we went back to the manager for a refund. They claimed that they had not rented the rooms. We knew that was a lie but they would not give us our refund.

Stay away from this place. They are rude, dishonest and the accommodation is not good. If you are backpacking then perhaps you would be happy with the standard of accommodation. It should not be 4 star tourism bureau rated.

I stayed in the 'studio apartments' about a week ago and I must admit that I was very impressed. Initially searching for a place to stay, I noticed that the rates were extremely competitive and I was a bit skeptical at first. I thought that the quality and standard of the accommodation would be inferior to other self catering accommodation I have been to before. I was very impressed with this place and loved the location as it was close to the beach, restaurants and other shops. The room was really nice, well cleaned and the furniture was well maintained. They had all the necessary kitchen utensils I needed to cook and clean. The satellite dish was a bit faulty but you can take your own movies with as there is a DVD player. I liked that the kitchen and the room were separate from each other. I did not have much interaction with the staff but when I did they were friendly and helpful. I would definitely visit again but for a longer period.

The house we rented was excellent. Three bedrooms (one with en-suite) and well stocked apartment. (as well as off street parking). I think there are a number of different apartments/houses that they let out on behalf of owners, so not sure if it is luck of the draw in which you get. If ours was anything to go by, then you will be well pleased. We even had a little splash pool (which we didn't use) but had we had time, would have been great. Fresnay is at the end of Sea Point, and our townhouse was one block from the main road, where there were grocery stores, restaurants etc. What we loved about our townhouse was there was even a washing machine and dryer. Made life so easy for us. Highly recommended.

Perfect base to explore Cape Town and very impressed with the overall quality, furnishings and professional service, in particular from the Manager Ulandi. I would highly recommend this property and the facilities are great too -gym, pool, bbq area and bar. Felt very safe and secure and brilliant shops nearby to stock up on your self catering needs.

Room Tip: A one-bed suite was perfect for two -some other suites on offer too

Very nice and secure small complex of apartments with common area and pool to relax and sunbathe. We booked a one bedroom apartment and were upgraded to a two bedroom one with a large veranda overlooking the pool. The apartment is new, modern and nicely furnished. Besides the two bedrooms it consists of two bathrooms, a large and well equiped kitchen area and a big dining/living room area.
Sunshine lettings are a 5 minutes walk from the sea front and several supermarkets and restaurants are around the corner. Wifi is available at a moderate fee. Staff at the nearby guesthouse Villa Sunshine are very friendly and helpful.

If ever you are looking for great accomadation in Cape town, I can definelty recommend sunshine apartments in sea point. Sitauted close to the beach, city center, gyms, resatuarants and all other attractions in cape town. Travelling with my wife and a toddler they even offered a camp cot and linen for baby. The apartment is situated in a secure complex with parking. There is remote controlled access on the front and rear of the buidling. It borders the oppulent Bantry bay and is a mere 5 minutes dirve to clifton and camps bay. Their sevice was outstanding. Well done Sasha and the team. My only advise to them is that they keep their rates as competitive as they are. Also, maybe look at getting a bigger microwave to asists families with toddlers that may need to sterilise bottles etc. It was a stay that was really enjoyed by our entire family.
