“Awesome views and value for money.”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

A group of friends went away for the weekend to the Royal Apartment at Bikini Beach

The views were amazing, and there was enough space for the 8 of us.

The apartment had all the conveniences that one would expect.

We all enjoyed the weekend away and will definitley return.

“Amazing Views”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in the Royal Apartment at Bikini Beach Manor for 10 days. The apartment is lovely and the views from the balcony are stunning.

There were 6 of us staying and there was more than enough room.

The owner Niall and his staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Gordons bay is a lovely area around 40 minutes drive from Cape Town centre, it was ideal for us as we wanted somewhere a little quieter which still gave us the option to visit Cape Town easily.

“Breathtaking, dream experience at Bikini Manor”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Booking accomodation online is so riskly, especially to celebrate my 50th birthday in August with my immediate family, but it was a WOW moment when I stepped into the apartment!I actually felt like ‘royalty’! Everything, from the spectacular view to the decor, cleanliness, it all was stupendous!! Not forgetting the staff, especially Victoria, what a darling – fantastic service received.Already planning to go back in September.Well done Niall!!

“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.
