Great stay at a perfect location in Camps Bay. Super service and kind hospitality by our host. All was taken care of and a nice cold bottle of champagne awaited us upon arrival. The fireplace (gas) was very nice and the outside terras with sunbathing chairs were perfect. Would highly recommend this place!

Dear Thomas, Thank you for the wonderful review. Our apologies for the building works. Our neighbour finished the building works now and have taken away a bit of the view again. We regret this very much and are now considering building higher ourselves. The garden will stay, as this is our sanctuary. We hope we may welcome you again in...

Very stylish and well furnished apartment. Views were stunning towards Lion's Head and down to Camps Bay. Staff were very good and response to any query extremely fast. Loved the Champagne on arrival and warm welcome. Great base for a holiday in Cape Town.

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.

“The main room has an excellent view, but as a lot of sunlight comes in, the room heats up quite quickly. Unfortunately, the air-conditioning is not very good, so I would think this would be a problem in the summer. You can ask for fans though.”
