Nice Apartments, Super Location, Great Staff

Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Location, Layout of apartment, Facilities, approachable and helpful staff
Cons: Free Wi Fi would be a bonus, I believe that this is being installed in the very near future.
Location: Seapoint is vibrant and active - Great Beach - Super outdoor swimming pool - wide range of restaurants and shops - Short drive into Central Cape Town
I stayed at one of the apartments at Planet Africa in Seapoint. Management helped with early check in and tour of facilities (Which are very good, including Gym, Swimming Pool and Laundry). I had my 8 yr old son stay with me and the Sofabed provided was perfect for him. We were based at the apartment for 2 weeks and it quickly became a second home for us. Manager Bethany and her team made sure that all our needs were met, and responded quickly to the little things (we messed up the TV system, and managed to lock our valuables in the safe and not gain access) No fuss, and problem solved.

Close to stores, restaurants and the beach

Staying in an apartment is a great way to travel. The downside is that the staff was not very communicative or response to email. For example, when I arrived, I had no idea how to enter the premise or how to find the apartment I was staying at. Fortunately, a guy was sent to meet me there and waited 2 hours for my arrival. But that was just luck since no plans were communicated to me for how we would meet. The place was great and the stay was nice, but the reception staff needs training.

Decent for the price but some flaws

Posted Dec 1, 2012
Pool was out of commission the whole time I was there - looked like was being serviced. No TV the first night , was fixed the following morning, Overall a decent place for the price but one or two things that, given they are used to market the place, really should have been working.

Large, clean convenient two bed flat with own terrace and parking, in a central sea point location. Pool was empty but that didn't concern us, security could be an issue as there is no concierge and the building does have multiple entrances. Overall would recommend on basis of size, location, convenience etc..

an oasis in busy Seapoint

Posted Nov 13, 2012
Pros: the size and finishes in the apartment and the lovely open complex
Cons: we liked everything
Location: perfect location. In the middle of Seapoint, but very close to the sea and also close to shops and restaurants. But quiet at night.
our apartment was very clean and furnished with a lot of thougt. The kitchen was really well equipped and we had everything to cook out own meals which saved a lot of money. the bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed having proper duvets instead of the blankets and sheet we found in a lot of other places. The complex was really great. Nice sized pool and lawn, a good bbq area and we really felt like being in Africa with all the thatch and african decoration. A real oasis in the busy Cape Town. Parking was inside the complex behind electric fences and so we did not have to worry about any breakins. All in all a very pleasant stay, with good insider tips from the staff who were all more than helpful. We will definately be back

Great value for money

Posted May 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
For the price we got on Hotels.com, we couldn't have asked for more. The only issue, and this is seriously inconvenient, was that the reception is not at the same address as the hotel, so when you arrive, your only alternative is to phone, and if you don't have a local mobile, that's very expensive. They need to sort that out urgently. Also beware of the old safes in the room. Ours got stuck and we had to wait til the next day for the manager.

Not Impressed

Posted Aug 9, 2011
Didn't appear that the staff for this apartment had any interest in our visit. I know it was off season but no one made an effort until asked to show us how things worked or where things could be located in the complex/apartment. The phone for the room didn't work all week so if there was an emergency I'm not sure what we would have done. My daughter called the main guest house while I was away and was told not to worry we weren't dead. Disappointing visit.

I'll be back

The Sunshine Letting Apartments is actually named Planet Africa and is situated in Sea Point, about two blocks from the sea front. It is a block of self contained apartments. I stayed in a studio apartment in the new block. The studio was perfect. A full kitchen, double bed and lounge area (with sofa bed), flat screen TV with satellite (although not all the channels were available) and an en suite bathroom. The lounge also had double opening french doors which let the sunlight and fresh air in. There was also a space outside for free car parking. 50 metres away from the apartment was the main road with two large supermarkets and a wide range of eateries (be wary of walking around after dark!!). If you have any problems, you have to walk a couple of blocks to the Sunshine Villa. The people there are very nice and will help you book tours etc. I would definitely stay again if i visit Cape Town.
