Mont Serrat Apartments: Home away from Home

Pleasant,Had a great time here.Fully furnished apartment...So no problems at all.It just felt like home...5 minutes walk to the beach

We enjoyed great views from this apartment...Looking at the Sea or Table mountain from the Bed side through the window. There is a balcony as well for more great views. There is a pool and some tennis court as well. Of course I will stay at the same place next time around.

Die Melkbaai: Beachfront Self -Catering Apartment

We had a really great stay here. The location is really great as it`s situated opposite a very popular beach in the Strand. There is restaurants close by , a flea market and some shopping centre`s.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom self-catering apartment which is fully equipped and came with an extra 2 blow up beds in case you will be staying there with 2 kids. You got a lounge and TV and you can bring along your own DSTV Smart card if you have one and it has a fully fitted kitchen with everything you need if plan to be cooking some meals.

The complex is very nice and secure and the owners were very nice people.

It`s right opposite the beach. The apartment has partial sea view and a view of the mountains behind. It`s close to Stellenbosch so if you planning to do the Wine Route it`s really close. There is braai facilities which is really great to make use of. Braai is what the American`s will call BBQ.

Big Bay Beach Club: West coast

Fully furnished apartments alongside the west coast. Places like Blouberg, Sunset beach and Milnerton...This places are so close to the beach. It's only 10 - 15 minutes drive from the City and some of the apartments are very reasonable. If you looking for a piece of mind,this is one the places opt for.

You can use Rapid Bus Service called MyCity to access the city center and other places around Cape town like Camps bay, V & A Waterfront, Century City and huge mall at Canal Walk.

At Big bay beach club the is a pool,braai place and tennis courts as well.

Alantic Gold: The ultimate luxury accommodation in Camps Bay

I stayed at Atlantic Gold for 4 days and had the most amazing time!

The apartments are self-catering so you have absolute privacy and flexibility, which is a huge bonus if you prefer to steer away from the rigid routine associated with most catered accommodation. It is also set against one of the most beautiful mountain and ocean landscapes, which adds that extra bit of magic!

All the apartments are fully equipped so you have all the comforts of home (ie. flat screen television, comfortable leather couches etc) - there are also a lot of luxury facilities, such as a jacuzzi and indoor swimming pool, so you get all the comfort of home as well as all the lavish trimmings of luxury Camps Bay accommodation.

Overall, Atlantic Gold is a great self-catering apartment. I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Cape Town and looking for luxury accommodation in Camps Bay.

An incredible setting against the breathtaking backdrop of the Twelve Apostles mountains, and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Penthouse Chavonnes: an apartment with a view

It is nearly at the V & A Waterfront...but not quite.
A very neat and chic apartment block, with tigh security (so tight I struggled to get in!) and underground parking. Not only a convenient place to stay if you have a car but a place you would not want to stay without one - the streets around the complex are not too salubrious and a lot of drunks and homeless people under the bridges/fly overs.

The apartment itself - oh yes! after 3 weeks of dusty travel it was utter luxury with incredibe views.

a very bright, light, clean and spacious 2 bedroom apartment with bathroom and en suite bathroom, kitchen/diner and lounge R2400.

There is a restaurant in the building on the ground floor.

Ansela's Place: ...darling!

When I emerged form the underground carpark, very tired, the inside of Mutual Heights, looked to me like a prison - with it's suspended, metal walkways! However, having a little wander, internally, in te morning I could appreciate it for the glorious Art Deco building it is... and amongstit'srandeur was my apartment- very nice, spacious, clean, comfy and well situated on Darling Street.

The apartment was 2 bedroom (sleeping 4 - 1 double, 2 singles). There was a bathroom, kitchen and a dingin/living area. Total cost for 1 night R915.

Mutual Heights was designed by Fred Glennie, built in 1939 and opened in 1940. It was, for its time, at 236 feet high, the tallest building in the country and the tallest structure (after the Pyramids of Giza) in Africa. It was considered to be ‘extreme’ and the Cape Times dedicated a 16 page supplement to it! I’m not the biggest fan of Art Deco but I could appreciate the enormous black marbled entrance with all of the workmanship that had gone into it. I did not, however, appreciate being shouted at when I tried to take a photo. Apparently photography is only permitted if one has a letter of authority from the owner. I did not.

Aloe House B&B

This B&B belongs to Frank, who was our tourguide to the Cape of Good Hope (see General Tips).

I have not stayed there personally, but the reviews are excellent and having met Frank, I can very well imagine that this B&B is a nice place to stay!

Do have a look at his website and decide for yourself! (And should you book, tell him hello from me!!)

Here is a streetview map of the Aloe B&B, so take a virtual stroll!

Camps Bay Mansion: Camps Bay a South African gem

Hi there.

I would suggest you try to book accomodation in one of the more affluent area's in Cape Town. The Atlantic seaboard is within close proximaty to where you need to be but you will definitely need to hire a car to get around as public transport can be unsafe and unreliable. The beaches in this area are not to be missed and you should make a point to visit, Clifton as well as Camps bay beach. I used a great company called Holiday Rentals in Cape Town. They managed to find me an awesome apartment. Their URL is www.rentalsincapetown.com/campsbay.htm
Best of luck and enjoy your stay.

Luxurious decor and state of the art appliances. All the modern conviniences you could every wish for.
Breath taking views of the sea.

Clara Anna Fontein: Clara Anna Fontein

Clara Anna Fontein is a private game reserve and country lodge in the Durbanville wine valley, only 20 minutes from Cape Town city centre. The luxury tented safari camp and Bush Deli is situated in a poplar forest. The venue is perfect for corporate functions, conferences and
team building. Clara Anna Fontein is also a regular location for local and international
film shoots.
Become one with nature and experience Cape Town’s only luxury tented camp. The 18 tents are unique in that they all have en-suite bathrooms and are situated in a poplar forest, in the game camp. The bush breakfasts make it a “corporate must” for companies. Very often eland and wildebeest come to drink water at the stream flowing in front of the tents. The Tent Camp is ideal for hosting birthday and other parties combined with sleepover and breakfast.
Cottages
Four cottages with 10 luxury en-suite rooms in total, offer spectacular views over the dam and vineyards. Self-catering or fully inclusive packages available. This must be the best kept secret in Cape Town with Zebra's and wildebeest as your neighbours and peace your soulmate.

Feeling that you are out in the wide open space, yet you are still close to the city

Rondebosch Guest Cottages: An affordable home away from home

When we travel to Cape Town, we always stay at the Rondebosch Guest Cottages, situated in the leafy suburbs close to the University of Cape Town. They provide excellent self-catering accommodation which is equipped with everything that you could need, at an affordable price in a central and attractive location: no wonder we never look any further!

The complex comprises roughly 8 units of varying sizes built in a mews style. The largest (Moon House) can sleep about 9 and has a small plunge pool, and at the other end of the scale, there are a couple of single bedroom units (all of which have separate bathrooms). All units have fully equipped kitchens (including microwaves) as well as washing machines, TV and MNet decoder. Each unit has its own small and beautifully maintained garden from which you can look up onto Table Mountain. We find it ideal for travelling as a family, but the smaller units would be equally well suited to the business traveller, especially if you were staying for a longer period.

Rondebosch is an extremely central location. It is less than 30 minutes from the airport, and within easy striking distance of virtually everywhere within the Cape Town area, yet in only a couple of minutes, you can be on the highway heading south to the peninsula. It is also only a few minutes drive from the shopping centre in Rondebosch which has a Woolworths Foods and a Pick'n'Pay, and there are many restaurants in the surrounding area if you prefer to eat out or order a takeaway.
The only minor downside is that the woman who runs it can be rather grumpy, but then you can't have everything!

Wonderfully located, tremendous value for money and a place that you'll want to stay time and time again.
Good security and safe, off road parking

Coral 107: Century City Apartments/townhouses

This was a town house in a secure estate. Self catering, we had a family of five, it sleeps 6. Its easy to get around from here and they have WiFi on for tenants.

I can certainly recommend it if you want to get away from staying in hotels.

Pool on the estate and Club House. Secure access, gated community. Easy to reach everything via the road system. Close to Canal Walk shopping centre.
