Perfect in every respect; convenient and comfortable, superb views, friendly and hospitable hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot fault this apartment. The owners, Karin and Norbert, are totally delightful, friendly without being intrusive, and are extremely hospitable. We felt wholly at ease with them and confident that if we ever were to require advice and help in an emergency (we didn’t!), they would be there to assist us in whatever way they could. We left them at the end of our stay feeling we were leaving old friends; something we have neither expected nor experienced from any previous hosts around the world.

The apartment is essentially a large studio apartment. The large bedroom can be closed off from the large lounge and kitchen area by good black-out curtains. The en suite is off the bedroom and has a large shower cubicle with reliable hot water. This is a well-equipped and spacious apartment, with everything you might need to cater for yourself and relax after a hard day sightseeing, either inside and outside. It was also good to have free wi-fi access. Surprisingly, not all apartments, even today, offer this without charge, or have it at all. Outside, the garden offers areas to sit in sun or shade, mostly laid to gravel and pathways with large ‘feature’ cacti and ‘Mediterranean’ vegetation. It receives sunshine for most of the day in one part or another, from mid-morning onwards.

The area in which the apartment is situated is very quiet, secure and safe. There are magnificent views from the garden across False Bay to Table Mountain and the Cape peninsula, with a backdrop provided by the range of craggy hills which lie close by across the road. It is very convenient for the main supermarkets, the best of which is a 5-10 minute drive away. Most of all, however, all the main places on interest - vineyards, smaller historic towns, the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town itself and, of course, Table Mountain - all lie within a 100 km or so drive, well within day trip distance. The region possesses superb scenery, and the historic centres of Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are most attractive and interesting to visit.

We left the apartment on our final morning most reluctantly, but all good things must come to an end, even perfect ones!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay with Karin and Norbert. I felt like part of the family. The view is amazing and the accommodation is very comfortable Norbert kept me company at the Thirsty Oyster restaurant and bar where there were some good singers.

Many thanks to Karin and Norbert for making my stay very pleasurable !

Excellent séjour à Gordon's Bay

  • 4 of 5

Location conforme à la description. Chaleureux accueil des propriétaires avec de belles attentions (2 bouteilles de vin, un bouquet de fleurs et une corbeille pleine de fruits). Un petit regret : le manque de lumière sur la terrasse.

Appartement parfaitement situé pour apprécier pleinement la région du Cap.
