Camps BayWhen Sir Francis Drake rounded Africa's southern tip in 1580, he wrote in the ship's log, "This Cape is the most stately thing and the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth."

Indeed, the sight of majestic Table Mountain confirms your arrival in Cape Town, the most cosmopolitan of all South African cities and one of the most beautiful in the world. Shouldering Table Mountain are the magnificent twelve apostles mountains which guard over the atlantic seaboard, home to the sandy white Camps Bay beach and Bakoven Bay cottages.


Camps BayFrom the cottages, it's just 4 minutes by foot to Bakoven beach and 10 minutes to the world-famous Camps Bay beach, shops, chic restaurants, trendy bars and theatre. Downtown Cape Town, the cable station to Table Mountain as well as the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are all a mere 10 minute drive away.

The 2 Bakoven Bay Cottages are situated in the very quiet Rottingdean Road, one road above the coastal Victoria Drive. The swimming pool and jacuzzi overlook the Atlantic ocean. There is off-street parking for 2 cars as well as barbecue facilities.

Atlantic Cottage

The Atlantic Cottage has a main bedroom, sitting room and en suite bathroom. Open the sliding door of Your bedroom, step onto the pooldeck and inhale the crisp sea-air rolling off the ocean. Read the paper or sip a cup of coffee on the patio. At night, watch a movie in bed or fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the Atlantic. Single beds can be added in the sitting room for additional guests or children. The bathroom has a bath as well as shower.

Garden Cottage

The Garden Cottage has a main bedroom, kitchen (incl washing machine), loft and bathroom. As You open the french doors from Your bedroom into the garden, the morning sunlight comes flooding over Table Mountain. There is a second double bed in the low loft for additional guests or children.

FACILITIES in both cottages include: pool & jacuzzi (shared), patio furniture, TV, mini-Hifi, fridge, small stove, microwave, utensils, parking, laundry service.

Relax on the beach or just enjoy the view of the mighty Atlantic from the comfort of the deckchairs on the pooldeck; You can crown your day with a sundowner in the jacuzzi admiring an African sunset into the ocean.
