Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment, ideal for a Cape Town holiday of a lifetime.

The amazing beach front location of this modern spacious 3 bedroom apartment in Blouberstrand, with iconic views of Table Mountain and Robben Island, will leave you breathless. This is the ideal base for the family holiday of a lifetime in Cape Town.

Situated right on Blouberg beach, which is world famous for kite-surfing and other water sports, the views of the Atlantic Ocean from virtually every room will ensure a memorable stay. Furnished to high international standards with 3 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, you can enjoy free Wi-Fi and satellite TV and wrap-around views from the open plan layout of the spacious living area.

Guests have access to the entire apartment, 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, open plan kitchen, living area, dining room, double balcony and secure lock-up garage.

This apartment is not only within walking distance from various excellent beach front restaurants, bars and coffee shops but it is also the ideal base for the holiday of a lifetime to explore Cape Town’s lively gastronomic and cultural scene as well as the many renowned attractions including world famous beaches, historic landmarks, the Cape Winelands, the Cape Point Nature Reserve, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. A highlight of any stay at Ocean View is be the miles of unspoilt white beaches ideal for walking, swimming or water sports literally on your doorstep.

The central location of the apartment, in close proximity to public transport, the My City Bus route and national highways provide easy access to the Cape Town International Airport, the Cape Town city centre as well as the nearby Canal Walk Shopping Centre, the Ratanga Junction theme park, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CICC) and various international standard golf courses. The magnificent landscapes and floral kingdom of the Cape West Coast is also on your doorstep, while to the east, within easy day-trip reach, whale watching and shark-cage-diving is popular around Hermanus.

It's advisable to have a vehicle during your stay to enjoy the maximum benefit of what stunning Cape Town has to offer. The apartment is however in close proximity to local public transport, taxi services, the very good My City Bus route and national highways provide easy access to Cape Town and surrounds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guest Review on Tripadvisor:

"First off, dealing with Jacques and Alma was delightful. Our trip was upended by an Air France strike and our flight was diverted into Cape Town a day earlier. They immediately allowed us to arrive earlier than expected, but our flight out of Amsterdam was delayed and we arrived later than expected. Elizabeth was so gracious to meet us in the pouring rain and show us around the apartment. The underground parking is a wonderful and we managed to park a full-size Land Rover Discovery inside. The area is a great neighborhood with spectacular views of the beach front and ocean. Do not miss Table Mountain or Robben Island while in Cape Town. Finally, Jacques and Alma have an incredible place and there is no doubt you will enjoy every minute of your stay at their apartment."

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely but it is all about location! The photos do not do the view justice. Owners are very kind and easy to work with.

Great views

  • 2 of 5

Views from this condo were fantastic - we even braved the winds to enjoy the patio! Site manager was very helpful and even got groceries for us! Thank you again!

Unfortunately, the beds weren't comfortable and the rooms were quite small (In photos that wasn't obvious). The third bath has a tub but no shower which I didn't notice in the pictures - that slowed us down in getting ready each morning. Bathroom lighting was poor. The place seems "worn" which is not obvious in the photos e.g. pillows in family room were stained - sofa very faded - cushions didn't fit wicker chairs and weren't comfy.

Awesome views, spacious and well laid out!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the views and location of this spacious, clean, safe apartment. We were a party of 4 American family members - including our 14 year old nephew from California. The apartment has 3 bedrooms with 3 baths so we all had plenty of space and privacy when we wanted it. The balconies are huge and offer incredible views. The white sandy beach was just across the street and it was wonderful to wake up to that view and see what the surfers and beach comers were up to. There are good restaurants, laundromats and grocery stores very near by. The apartment parking garage was great & very safe. The drive into Cape Town was really easy (even for us from the US driving on the "wrong side" of the road). We comfortably explored Cape Hope (a must do!), Table Mountain(also a MUST do!), wine country, the Botanical Gardens and Cape Town itself, each during a daylong outing returning to this awesome apartment each evening. We hope to return soon-we visited during the winter but thoroughly enjoyed the weather. .we need to check it out in the summer
