Lovely apartment, everything you need for a great holiday. We went as a couple but there is ample space for two couples, two large bedrooms, both with very big and comfortable beds. Both have bathrooms with bath and separate shower. The views from the terrace are lovely, sea in one direction, with the most wonderful sunsets, and mountains in the other direction. The evenings, as so often in Cape Town were often very windy, but the terrace is sheltered enough that it is still comfortable to sit outside.
As other contributors have said, there is a high level of security (without being oppressive) .
It is about a 15 minute (easy) walk to the Camps Bay restaurants, which is good because you are away from the hustle and bustle, but near enough when you want to go there.
If you intend to fully explore Cape Town and beyond, it is well situated to drive and if it's available, hire the car that the owners have, takes all the hassle out of car hire, it's waiting for you when you get there, and the only "paperwork" is to Email a copy of your driving licemse so you can be put on the insurance.
The owners are lovely, and live on site, so are there for help and advise if needed.
All in all, highly recommended.

“Probably the best-appointed holiday rental kitchen ever :)”
Reviewed 13 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A wonderful stay at Apostle and hard to find something to add that has not already been covered in the positive (and well deserved) reviews already!

We have stayed in many self-catering apartments, and along with the 5-star property and care and attention of the hosts, we found the level of equipment and attention to detail in equipping the kitchen and to anticipate the needs of vacationers simply superb. Well done Nada!!

If you are in any doubt on whether to book - just do ti. You will not regret it!

A minor point for Adrian that may make some people's stay even better - if the LED lights outside the second bedroom could be on a motion detector PIR as well as a daylight sensor, it would make the second bedroom a wee bit darker and more comfortable for some who are sensitive to light when sleeping.

Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in March 2013

Superb location. Great views of the ocean and Mountains. Within walking distance of the Camps Bay strip with all the restaurants and stores. Upscale suburb of Cape Town. Very comfortable and very clean. Owners are extremely friendly and will help you with anything you need. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the villa for about 10 days with our baby and toddler.. The villa is situated in a great spot in Camps Bay, close to the beach, restaurants and a little supermarket.
The view is amazing, the apartment is very clean and well equipped and the hosts are friendly and helpful. I can't think of anything negative and would recommend this place to travellers with young children.
