Your holiday in Cape Town awaits you! But you haven’t yet fixed that special place to call home whilst you are on your South African travels and time is running out …
And where to begin? There are so many places to research. Let me be your guide, ensuring that you have the holiday you always wanted without the hassle.
Cape Town really is the jewel in the crown of South Africa’s holiday destinations. Stunning scenery, turquoise blue waters, soft white sand beaches, safari animals and history; at every turn something to new to see, to discover, to wonder at.
Overseeing everything, like a benign uncle, is the magnificence of Table Mountain. One of my favourite spots, tucked into the sheltering side of the mountain, is Camps Bay, not least because of the glorious beaches and huge expanse of blue skies.
7 minutes from the centre of Cape Town itself, this trendy suburb has a village feel to it, with a wide range of restaurants and beach cafes to suit every taste; accommodation including apartments, guest houses, hotels and villas.
The palm tree fringed beach is ideal for families, couples, even surfers and with blue flag status, ensures your day at the beach is top quality.
A number of excellent shops offer the visitor boutique shopping – a pleasant occupation away from the hustle and bustle of the main city streets.
One of the choice apartments in Camps Bay is Cloud Nine with its fifth floor views across the beach making it seem as if your holiday home is floating on the great blue yonder.
The light, contemporary décor and interior furnishings convey a minimalist feel with everything furnished with great taste and quality. With wi-fi connectivity you will never lack the opportunity to show off your holiday photos with your friends and family and along with a whole host of other indoor entertainment facilities, you will never be stuck for something to do.
As befits a luxury pad, the kitchen is state-of-the-art with the choice of the spacious balcony or 8 seater dining room from which to relax and enjoy your meals.
Of course, if eating out is more your style, well, Camps Bay offers some of the finest restaurants in Cape Town. All within a short stroll from your beachside holiday home.
Check out Blues restaurant, one of the more famous eateries that locals and visitors alike frequent – just one of a long list too many to mention here, but do ask us to point you in the right direction for some of the best food in town!
One other most important thing I want to tell you about here in Camps Bay are the sunsets. Facing directly into the setting sun, your view will turn into the most amazing orange colour whilst the huge golden orb of the sun drops into the ocean. The story told, is that a flash of vivid green is visible, as if of steam rising, the moment the sun touches the sea.
The best bit is your luxury holiday accommodation has a ringside seat!
