self catering apartment

I am hoping to find a secure apartment within walking distance of local attractions. There will be 3 of us so we need 2 bedrooms (all adults). We hope to travel from about 18-28 October 2007.

Does anyone have any recommendations or general advice?

Thanks in advance

I recommend you start with this web site:

safarinow.com/destinations/camps-bay/hub.aspx

110 choices - dealing with the owners - detailed information and photos for each one. Maybe after you see a few that seem right, you could ask on this forum for comments.

If you go the the AFRICAN VILLA website (excellent reviews by the way) they also offer self-catering apartment in a good position, think they are called Magic Mountain Suites.

Just google 'an african villa'

Not sure if you've made a decision but we stayed at a place called Shell Cottage. We arranged the rental through go2africa.com but you can rent directly through Nox Rentals, Cape Town. It was one block from the beach and all shops. The place is very nice. 4-bedrooms and 4-baths so is perfect for groups as everyone has their own "space". There is a very nice plunge pool right outside the door. The entire place both inside and out has a security system and private garage. Hope this helps. Good luck, and have a great trip!
