“Beautiful Apartment poor access”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
3
people found this review helpful

The apartment is beautifully and has good views. Tastefully decorated and fully equipped. Bathrooms are on the smaller side. The apartment at the bottom was been renovated and only after we strongly objected was the noisy renovation stopped. There were major road works in the area and gaining access to the property added a lot of frustration to our trips to and from the apartment. We were not given alternative routes by the renting agents which would have made access to the property less frustrating. The apartment is not disable friendly has steep steps to enter with a portion having no railings. although the property has two garages you are not allowed use and you have to park on the pavement so please check with your car rental that this is ok.

“This is a review of the downstairs apartment at No 26 Ingleside Road”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

people found this review helpful

Our family's original choice wasn't available for the dates we were to be in Camp's Bay, so this was found on the internet. There are 2 apartments here, we were in the smaller downstairs apartment (2 bedrooms, 1 shower-room, swimming pool). To be honest, we had no previous experience of staying in Camp's Bay, we usually stay in the Gardens area. We found the apartment clean but a little overrated. The decor wasn't at the level we had expected (eg curtains not all on their hooks, some tea/sugar only provided) and for some reason we expected secure parking - there isn't any, you park on the pavement outside the block. The pool was clean and refreshing, with a barracuda that detached itself at night! (we learned how to re-attach it) Only 2 sunbeds provided, so 2 of us had to use chairs or sit with feet in pool There's a safe box but on asking the check-in lady about it, she knew nothing and we phoned the agency who found out from the owner that some previous occupant had lost/not returned the key and it needed to be re-set. I guess at the cost we were paying, things like that should have been sorted immediately, we would have been glad of the facility. Daily maid-service Monday-Friday. There are trellidor gates on the bedrooms out to the pool, this was great because we could leave the french doors open at night with the trellidor across and locked. There was only a fan in the bedroom, so the fresh air made a comfortable difference. Small shower room off the sitting/kitchen area - with 4 adults, it needed some organisation for showers. Very hot water, beware, you only need turn the hot tap on a fraction. Small table outside by the pool, with braai (unused by us). The canopy (manual operation) looked rather tatty. There's also a door to the side which leads into a messy dumping area. Overall, perhaps the property downstairs needs some upgrading to match the price being charged for this apartment.

Hi Jill,

We took your feedback very seriously and have just completely overhauled the lower apartment including re-tiling in travertine, all new furnishing and decor, including big screen tv, and maintained some of the smaller issues that you mentioned were not up to scratch. We are awaiting new photos in the next few days, and we would love to welcome you back again.

Kind Regards

Jackie

“Luxury in a superb location”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I'm quite sad that we only stayed at this place for a couple of nights, as it was divine!
Spectacular views of the ocean, Table Mountain and Lion's Head.
Pool and patio area up the top of the property, well maintained.
Spacious and comfortable bedrooms, all but one with lovely ensuites, two with ocean facing balcony. Ensuite in the back bedroom had a few lights out.
Plush lounge area facing the ocean view - owners have made a great decision in makng the entire front of that room glass!
Great kitchen (lighting not all that great) and a backyard braai area.
Washing machine and clothes line came in handy, and the housekeeper was lovely.
House and property very secure also.

“Perfect getaway for a bunch of friends”
Reviewed December 10, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Atlantic Pearl is the perfect getaway for those looking for a contemporary decorated holiday home coupled with exceptional service. The place is absolutely beautiful, in fact, the the images displayed on booking.com under sale the place. Breathtaking views from the lounge right through to the pool place. Its situtated in a tranquil neighborhood where you can enjoy peace and quietness yet have fun with the offered facilities. I would like to thank James and his team for the prompt and professional service we received, .

Atlantic Pearl has officially become our annual holiday home and would definitely recommend it to those looking for a lovely Cape Town stay.

“Atlantic Pearl - Perfect Place to Stay!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Our group of nine stayed at the Atlantic Pearl for five days in November and it was perfect! To begin, booking was painless. Working with ComeToCapeTown.com was very easy, and the staff were highly communicative, always replying to my emails within 24 hours. Additionally, they were very accommodating for our large group, who were arriving at different times, and graciously met early to give the first arrivals the house keys and walk them through the property. They also included a welcome bottle of wine - nice touch!

The house itself is gorgeous. It has views of both Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, and lots of windows. We loved the private pool area in the back, surrounded by lush gardens. We also loved that the neighborhood felt very safe and we felt comfortable parking our rental cars outside the house at night. The rooms were plenty big and the beds were comfortable. We liked that 3 of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, which made it easy for the group of us to all get ready in the morning. Plenty of hot water too! And the couch was so huge we could nearly all fit on there to relax at the end of the day. The daily housekeeping is nice to keep on top of the dishes, or any laundry you may want to do, but you are also free to take care of those things yourself if you prefer.

As far as the house's location, we couldn't have been more pleased. It was easy to find, and a 7 minute walk from the ocean! The ocean street reminded us of South Beach in Miami or somewhere in southern California. It was lined with lots of cute restaurants and bars, and also a Pick N' Pay (grocery store) which made stocking up on supplies easy. The house is also a maybe 10 minute drive from Table Mountain, and 20 minutes (max) from the V&A Waterfront. It's also located right off the Coast road, so we had no problem hopping on the road that led us down to Simonstown and the penguins. :)

The only (minor) snafu was that the internet went down during our second day and never came back. However, since we all live and work in Africa, we weren't too surprised to find non-functioning internet, and it really forced us to unplug and enjoy where we were!

We have already recommended Atlantic Pearl and CometoCapeTown.com to our friends!

Hi Cassie,
thank you so much for this! Most appreciated. As you know, we did all we could to get the internet back up and running, but this problem was out of our hands. We have sent a discount voucher to use next time you stay with us, in lieu of this minor snag. Thanks again for taking your time to write this review, guests like you make our work that much more rewarding!

“Amazing location with stunning views”

We spent our last four nights in South Africa in Camps Bay and rented this property through Come to Cape Town. The property had more than we needed and came with a daily housekeeper who was fantastic. The view from the lounge is stuning and the windows all the way up so you can make the most of it come rain or shine. In the garden there is a lovely pool and sun loungers where you can appreciate the vista even more. The beach was a ten minute walk away or a 2 minute drive.

James at Come to Cape Town was extremely helpful too.
