stayed for two separate times during our holiday to SA. So much has been said about these apartments, so i will summarise our comments
Great location in hills above campsbay, you could walk down in around 15 mins, but walk back up is more difficult. We had a car!
Took a two bedroomed apartment (204) which was fantastic, well furnished, spacious with great views from balcony down to camps bay and view from rear window to 12 apostles and lions head/table mountain.
Accommodation exceeded our expectations, bit short on cooking equipment but with so many great restaurants in camps bay others may not be concerned
Few minor issues with blinds, which were not repaired
Staff very welcoming and helpful, you can use fee email/internet in office or purchase internet vouchers, which we did
Took one of thier tours full day winelands trip, which was really good
Used the Bay hotel/beach club on a few occasions, service was great and prices lower than we expected. also used free shuttle to attend fee wine tasting and then had dinner (not so good-another story)
Overall we thoroughly recommend these apartments. Location in camps bay is great for touring, going on hop on hop off red bus, viewing sunset on signal hill and for travelling to cape penisula and further afield.
Camps bay appears quite safe, loads of restaurants and bars, post office, general store and mini supermarket, ATMs but no bank. Also no store that sells wine or liqour so if you require these items you will have to travel into sea point or further into cape town (but not on a sunday!)
Overall a fantastic stay at wonderful apartments, swimming pool cold!
