“Beautiful apartment and views of false bay, Cape Town.”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We had a great stay at the Royal apartment (Bikini Beach Manor). Views are spectacular. Apartment has good modern finishes. Access is easy and it is situated in a area with many attractions and activities to do. Would recommend this apartment.

“Absolutely breath-taking....”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

2nd visit here and we were upgraded to the Royal Suite. Niall and Vangie are amazing hosts and they are so lucky to have secured one of the best spots in town. The rooms are spacious, luxurious, well designed and very comfortable. Just sit in the pool and admire the gorgeous scenery. We will definitely be back!

“Great apartment and fantastic views”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We rented out this apartment together with the other 3 as well and really enjoyed our stay. This apartment is huge with a big kitchen and great balcony area. Very social space and comfy sofas. Only down side was the smallest bedroom which had 3 single beds and a toilet and shower in a very small space, it may suit children better than adults. The shared garden, barbecue area and pool are great and the views amazing. Would definitely recommend for a stay in Gordons Bay.

“An amazing apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed 21 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed in the Royal Apartment and had a great weekend. The apartment is fully kitted with everything you'll need and as mentioned the views are absolutely breathtaking!! Special mention must be made to the owner Niall who is really friendly and extremely accommodating. Definitely a place to check out if in the Cape Town area.

“Great location...with an amazing view of the ocean.”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We were 7 guests all together in the Royal Apartment. We all really enjoyed our stay at the Bikini Beach Manor. The apartment was fully furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen had a dishwasher which made cleaning up a lot easier. The view from the terrace was breathtaking. We also enjoyed the communal pool on the property. I would definitely vacation there again :).
