We spent the last 2 nights of our holiday with wonderful hosts Jennifer and Beach at the stunning Boutique@10. Great ambience, incredibly friendly hosts and team, very relaxing and comfortable, spotlessly clean, fabulous service and nothing was too much trouble. Good advice on where to go and lots of help with arrangements and reservations. Not to mention the amazing views over Camps Bay from the terrace. Very highly recommendable. Thanks guys for a great end to our holiday

Even if you don’t read the detail in each review of Boutique@10, (although you must), you can’t fail to get the flavour of this establishment from the consistent 5 star ratings. Surely so many people can’t be wrong?

No, they’re not. Very much at the high end in the premier league of B&Bs/guesthouses worldwide, Boutique@10 nevertheless retains that welcoming, homely feel where guests very quickly become friends. Owners Jennifer and David (Beach) are consummate and hands-on hosts, and have built up a little gem here. Their support team of Tash, Baba, and Tito (who I swear have smiles wider than the English Channel) do them proud.

I shan’t elaborate on accommodation as the detail is on the website, but suffice to say, it has to be seen to be fully appreciated. With only four suites, it can become a sociable experience (supporting earlier review by Doggles10), but don’t let this deter you if privacy is your thing - there’s ample room for both.

The location up on the hillside affords views over Camps Bay in it’s entirety, and to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Breakfast served al fresco in this environment gives a great start to the day. Whilst the view may distract you from your food, you should savour David’s culinary delights, and the service of Tash and Baba. Come evening time, this is the perfect place for those sundowners - watching as the day recedes, the dusk settles over the ocean, and the lights of Camps bay begin to twinkle.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines “Paradise” as “a place of bliss…or delight”. Perhaps they should consider adding …or Boutique@10!

Do give it a whirl, but be warned, you won’t want to leave, and you will want to return.

best b&b in South Africa - the views across Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean were stunning, our hosts Jennifer and Beach made our stay very relaxing and comfortable, they were always good humoured and gave us many useful tips about what to do and where to go, the atmosphere was very familiar and we loved the music from DJ Beach.
We will come back again! Many thanks!

This place is beautiful and exactly per reviews. Beach and Jennifer add the personal touch ensuring a perfect stay. Sadly we could only stay for one night but would have loved a few more.

We stayed in the ocean suite, very clean, huge bathroom with separate run-in shower and jacuzzi. Very comfy huge king size bed.

Breakfast on the balcony overlooking camps bay is simply wonderful and Beach cooked to order (just right poached eggs and French toast but was offered much more), along with all the usual breakfast items.

Thanks Beach and Jennifer xxx

This place is booked nearly a year in advance by repeat guests. You can read the reviews and look at the photos but you won't understand why until you have stayed there.

This place has an atmosphere and a vibe that other places just don't have.

I can't think of another guest house where all the guests will attend someone's birthday party, hike Lion's Head en mass at 6am or all go out to dinner in the evenings.

Maybe Boutique@10 attracts a mellow friendly group or maybe it just brings out the best in all of us... Regardless we will be back again next year!

After a long flight from Canada (7 /12 + 11 1/2) hours our priorities were a relaxing shower and a very comfortable bed. Boutique@10 provided both and so much more. David met us at the door with a warm smile and a helping hand. Even though we were early, David made us feel immediately at home. Our room was very spacious with a King Bed, a seating area and a large washroom. Sliding doors led to a deck with a stunning view. The guests also have use of the plunge pool and main area which is great.

We decided not to rent a car for the first 3 days of our trip but wondered once we arrived if this was the right decision with Boutique@10 being a hilltop location. It ended up working out really well. We would walk down to the beach a couple of times a day (15 minutes all down hill) which we really enjoyed. We would take a taxi back up and normally it would be a maximum of R30 (about $3 Canadian). The Hop On bus stops in Camps Bay and we made use of it. A relaxing and informative way to see the surrounding area.

Breakfast was served on the lower deck (main part of the home). It started with fresh fruit and cereal and then our choice of eggs, omelettes, french toast or whatever else we wanted. The ladies, plus David and Jennifer cooked, served and were there to help with the day's plans.

David made our restaurant reservations and got us in even on Valentine's Day.Their recommendation of Codfather and ZenZero were excellent.

Our second morning we joined David, Jennifer and the 3 other couples staying at Boutique@10 for an early morning hike up Lion's Head. Such a special treat - the views were great.

With such glowing reviews on Trip Advisor we had very high expectations. David and Jennifer you exceeded our expectations. We will miss your morning smiles and your outgoing, accommodating attitude. This was our first visit to Boutique@10 but it will not be our last.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Boutique@10, Jennifer and Beach were wonderful hosts, great breakfasts with lovely views high up over Camps Bay. We stayed in the Beach Suite which has its own private entrance so we found it extremely peaceful and relaxing. All in all it was like home away from home we felt very safe and were looked after incredibly well. It was lovely to return back after a lovely meal out and have a glass of wine or beer and just write it in the book, sitting watching the lights glistening below in Camps Bay. It would be lovely to go back especially if you had other people travelling with you, as there are 4 Suites in the hotel you could nearly book the whole place! Thank you Beach and Jennifer for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: The Beach Suite if you want privacy, we did not see the other rooms but by the standard of the Beach...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Boutique at 10 is unique accommodation located on the edge of Camps Bay's central ravine. We are perfectly centered above Camps Bay Beach, with full view of the white beach sands being swept clean by the blue Atlantic Ocean. All this coupled with uninterrupted panoramic views of the coastal landscape and ocean, from north to south, as far as the eye can see, yet only a 10-15 minute walk down to Camps Bay Beach and its famous restaurant strip.Positioned in the heart of Camps Bay on the Atlantic Seaboard, the Boutique is just a 5 minute drive to the Table Mountain Cable Car Station, 10 minute drive to Cape Town CBD and V&A Waterfront, 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and a leisurely and scenic drive to the Cape of Good Hope, the Cape Wine lands and the many beautiful golf courses that the Cape has to offer.The boutique style villa, a blend of Swiss chalet and beach cottage, originally built in 1955 and remodeled 35 years later by its second and current owners, David Beach and Jennifer, features 4 spacious and ocean-facing guest suites. The Boutique features an open and spacious design, which leans towards old school, with a variety of rich woods, french doors, large arched windows, brass wall lamps and the original wrought-iron balustrade which were, with great care, removed from the historical Sea Point President Hotel, that was demolished back in the early '90s.To ensure guests comfort, all suites, which are serviced daily, include 32-40 inch LCD flat screens, complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity, air-conditioning for room climate control, electronic safes, hair dryers, tea and coffee trays and en-suites with shower and/or bath. Three of the guest suites feature beds that can be made into two singles or a king, while the Ocean Suite offers a stylish, king-size wooden sleigh bed, designed and hand crafted by a good friend. All are draped in pure white linen and splashed with colourful hand painted throws, extra length pillows, scatter cushions and are dressed with goose down duvets and flat sheets.Sliding glass doors lead to a large common outdoor balcony for the Ocean and Lions Head Suites on the upper level. The Deck Suite opens up to the main pool deck and the Beach Suite has a private entrance and private garden patio. Both are located on the main level of the house and can accommodate a third single bed upon request.A healthy breakfast of coffee or tea, fresh juice, toast and cereals, eggs, cold meats, cheese, yoghurt and seasonal fruit, is served in the open plan guest lounge which flows onto the main wooden pool deck making a spacious and inviting area in which to eat and lounge. Five large double doors open up from the lounge onto the pool deck to allow nature's beauty, the fresh ocean breeze and the sounds of birds to blend into the essence of pleasure and relaxation which is Boutique at 10.The popular guest lounge, with the original stone wall and rustic fireplace, warms the body on cool evenings ... while a glass of Cape wine warms the soul ...You may just never want to leave ... ... more   less
