“Spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We had a really wonderful stay at Apostle and it was very comfortable for a famiily with two young boys. The apartment is cleaned daily and the service is generally great - was so nice to arrive and find the fridge stocked with milk, juice and snacks for the kids, and wine for us. We would definitely recommend this apartment.

“Dream place to stay”
Reviewed 18 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Overlooking the sea at Camps Bay at the front with view of Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles behind.
Lot's of nice touches, like lots of fluffy towels, complementary wine, daily maid service and even a picnic rucksack - great for filling up with cheese etc and a bottle of wine for taking up Table Mountain
We stayed before in the other apartment at this property - Adriatic - for Diane's 40th birthday - and that was just as good. Looking forward to returning for my 50th birthday treat

“Saved us in Camps Bay!”
Reviewed 25 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

After booking in to a horrible apartment in Camps Bay our lovely travel agent moved us to Apostle at Funkey - Camps Bay. She knew and trusted the owners and apartment - and was absolutely right. The owners are so hospitable and a wonderful example of South African hospitality.

The photo's on their website do not do the apartment justice - it has lovely views, is extremely comfortable and has every amenity required, and the hidden beaches just nearby are a delight. It was close enough to walk to the main strip of Camps Bay and the main beach but was not affected by traffic noise (Camps Bay has a high traffic thoroughfare)

Lovely clean pool. Views of the 12 apostles at night was just spectacular. Hospitality was wonderful. Staff looked after us and the apartment beautifully. We can't speak highly enough of this place.

(plus for those looking for a place for a small group you can book Adriatic next door and have both to enjoy. Perfect.)

“A perfect Cape Town retreat”
Reviewed 8 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed at Apostle at Funkey Place with our kids, who are 9 months old and 3 yrs old, and it was perfect. The accommodation worked well and the rooms are all beautifully appointed and serviced daily. The views front and back were stunning and the owners - Nada and Adrian - could not have been more helpful in making our kids feel at home, ensuring we had everything we needed. It was a perfect base for our holiday - easy to walk down to Camps Bay beach or explore the rest of Cape Town. Would highly recommend.

“The best”
Reviewed 24 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Apostle at Funkey is a stunning self contained villa with a lovely cooling pool. The rooms are extremely spacious and well maintained. Standards are high and the property is spotlessly clean. The beds are very comfortable, and there is a small veranda to the front where you can experience some spectacular sunsets. Looking at the breathtaking Table Mountain scenery whilst showering has to be a reason to rent on it's own!
The owners, Nada and Adrian, are so obliging, nothing seems too much trouble for them and their staff are trustworthy and dilligent.
Security at Apostle is evident, but we have never felt unsafe in Bakoven and surrounding areas and it is very peaceful. A 2 minute car journey or a 10 minute walk away is Camps Bay where the restaurants are fabulous and the Caipirinhas are unbelievably good!!
We will definitely be back.
