Fantastic Location, Fantastic Views

Posted Nov 24, 2016 on Hotels
Walking into these apartments gives you a definite 'wow' factor. You cannot get better views of the Indian Ocean - just fantastic. Very comfortable large bed, fantastic bathroom and fantastic locations. Any problems we had were addressed quickly/ We would stay here again.

Guests have sometimes joked that "amy closer and you would be on a yacht". Guests really are surprised at how amazingly close we are to the ocean. the photos somehow cannot show this .... I wish we could share the sound of the waves with potential guests. Thank you for your compliments and we are so please we satisfied all your wishes.

Wonderful place to stay. Private balcony, private sitting area and a grill on the balcony. There are shared common areas which are quite lovely including sitting area and pool with bbq area. A great place to watch the sunset and relax. The only negative to the property is very limited parking. But, that would not stop me from returning to this property. Quite nice.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. It seems that perhaps people either brought extra cars or did nto park correctly because we have 6 suite and 6 parking bays including 2 garage. We do apologise if you were inconvenienced at all but are thrilled that you enjoyed our facilities.

ocean front apartment in gordon bay, capetown.

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: the view and the family atmostphere of the room
Cons: should have some kind of transportation service arrangement with some companies for people who don't have a car like us.
Location: just step out and there are oyster restaurant and fish and chip places...
we stayed in the penhouse with two bed rooms for a family of 5 comfortably. we love the view from our balcony. the only problem we had was we did not know this was an apartment because it stated on the expedia as this is a hotel, and we did not have a car. it was hard to get a taxi come by. it would be a perfect trip if you have a car or schedule a private car/ taxi in advanced. this is very close to nice restaurant and you can order pizza deliver to your room at night.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. The Expedia Partner Central site has a template which suits hotels and not also Guest houses and B&B's but I have tried to describe features as clearly as possible. As a rule it is wise when touring South Africa to hire a car. This is a large country and distances are vast and generally public transport is minimal. Routes and highways are clearly marked and easy to follow. I am so pleased that we were able to assist you with your needs.

Fantastic location

Very good. Fantastic ocean front patio. Small accommodation but a lot to do outside. Very good and helpful host. Hotel is clean and well run. Location is superb. One needs several days to drive to all the attractions around. Easy reach to many hiking trials.

Oh, we are SO thrilled when our guests have a wonderful time. I agree that you do need at lest 4 to 5 days to enjoy all the local activities. Many guests who have booked for 1 or 2 days are disappointed when they have to leave because they have booked elsewhere. We are central in the Cape so you can enjoy so many exciting adventures (also relaxing!) all around. We can also organise discounted whale viewing, or a stay at a 'Big 5' Game Reserve. Remember also just to relax and enjoy the wonderful sea as it washes up close to the house so you can return home refreshed from a wonderful holiday.

Awesome Location, Great Accomodation

Posted May 8, 2013 on Hotels
We stayed in the Penthouse Suite, which is the 3rd floor of a 3 story building. There are two rooms, two bathrooms and an open plan lounge and kitchen area. Definately enough space for a family of four with young to teenage children. The hotel is right across from the beach so you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean. The main patio is equipped with braai (Barbeque) so you can relax in the evening watching the glorious sunsets drinking wine. We loved this place. The staff clean every day. I can highly recomend this place.

Thank you for such a complimentary report! You described the Penthouse so well I will need you to help me with my marketing please. (Ha! Ha!) Seriously though, I greatly appreciate your taking the time to comment. I do so hope you will return so we can suggest more adventures in the beautiful Cape.

185 Beach Road Studio in Gordons Bay

Posted Feb 12, 2012 on Hotels
It was a wonderful stay (too short though) with my family. We were on our way out of Capetown and wanted a nice relaxing day at the beach before going on our onward trip to the Garden route. Everything was ready for us, very clean and service was very friendly. The location right at the sea side is very good. It is just about 50m along the small road to get to the next beach (there are many nice ones around).

How wonderful that your hope of lovely accommodation was realised. I feel passionate that we must fulfil the dreams of our guests ... and yes, guest should try to stay at least 4 days so they can enjoy all the local adventures - some energetic like horse riding, some relaxing like sipping wine at sunset. Most important, guest should feel at home and comfortable in a friendly environment. I hope you visit again.
