We had the best time ever in this beautiful studio apartment. The views are stunning - just the road separates you from the sea. Great waking up to it, windows run the full length of the apartment to maximise the views. Loved sitting in the small balcony or in the common balcony with my tea or wine just watching the sea.

Pretty much everything you can think of is there- fully equipped kitchen, microwave, iron, bath-robes, etc. - even thoughtfully provided candles & candle-stands. There is even a folding chair to take to the beach - which we could'nt use sadly since it was winter when we were there.
The rooms are very nicely decorated in a blue & white med-kind of theme. They're serviced daily. The glassware is of very good quality.
Bathroom is perfectly adequate, shower cubicle with good force rain-shower but slightly noisy flush.
Lovely comfortable beds with good quality linen. The plush throws came in handy while sitting outside in the Cape Town winter.

Starter kit of tea/coffee/milk & juice is provided. Also R20 worth free wi-fi - both lasted the duration of our trip - 5 days. There was even a nice bottle of wine in the fridge.

Beverly the owner was always easy & friendly to deal with right from the email stage. She even kept our room warmed up for us the first day. Lost a pair of binoculars & wrote back to her & she went out of her way to look for it.

Easy safe walk to the main street with shops & cafes & beach. There is a pick-n-pay supermarket right at the beginning. 15 min to town. Safe remote access garage, trip alarm in the apartments. Safe in the wardrobe.

The traffic on the main road did'nt bother us one bit. It was in fact great to people-watch from our little balcony. Seemed to be a popular dog-walking, running, road - & why not, with those views!

Pretty perfect - would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We stayed at Bali Bay penthouse for 7 nights. Bev, the owner, was there to welcome us and kindly allow an early morning check in straight from our flight. She was polite, friendly and professional throughout, nothing was too much trouble.There was juice and milk in the fridge, tea and coffee and a good bottle of local wine on the table.
As soon as we arrived we were blown away by the place. The location is perfect,only 5 minutes safe walk (including at night) from all that Camps Bay has to offer. Garage facilities are available with remote controlled access so you can drive straight in.(There are outside steps up to the property which would be a problem for disabled guests.)
On entering all I could say was "wow!", the views from every room were amazing, the decor was lovely, everything was high quality and spotlessly clean, there was great attention to detail with soft furnishings etc.Glass doors across the whole of the property allow 360 degree views with the ocean at the front and the 12 apostles range at the rear. The lower floor with the living areas has 1 king size with en suite, I queen size, 1 twin, family bathroom and extra toilet. Beds are superbly comfortable and linen is crisp white cotton with duvets.
The living/dining area is spacious and has a large dining table, sofa, chairs and TV. On the balcony is another dining table and seating overlooking the ocean.
The kitchen is very well equipped and has dishwasher and washing machine. Crockery and cutlery was good quality and plentiful, entertaining would be so easy here.The maid does a superb job each day.
There is efficient underfloor heating which we did need a few times. The main bedroom also has an aircon unit.There is a safe in the bedroom.
The upper floor has one large room to relax in with two day beds, small tables and a shower room with toilet. Outside is a plunge pool, luxurious loungers, dining table and chairs and BBQ. The views from here are amazing, I never tired of just sitting and watching the sea.
This property is of the highest standard, in a great location for the whole of Cape Town and environs, we felt privileged to stay there and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Just a brief few lines for this one.
We stayed in the appartment for 11 days and it became our home from home.
We were only two for part of the time and had oceans of space but even with more folks it is still a superbly proportioned home. Others have talked about the views and situation, perfect! But what about location, location? Twenty minutes into the city centre what more can you want and great beaches as well.
Traffic. The appartment is right on the coast road so there is traffic noise, Friday afternoon it can become tedious. Other times we were unaware of it.
Not a cooks kitchen but for the majority of folks eating out in Camps Bay is the norm anyway.
We hope to go back

We had the penthouse to share between 4 of us and it was excellent as it has 2 double rooms and 1 Proper twin room.
Included is a lounge area and equiped kitchen and then upstairs a fantastic pool area as well as inside area with the most breath taking views.
3 Bathrooms and a separate toilet mean there is no waiting for others (especially the ladies), when getting ready to go out.
The town is a 5 to 10 min walk.
An hours walk is the 12 Apostles hotel which had a great lunch.

This place certainly has a beautiful view and is a comfortable stay but the service was terrible. Bev, the lady who runs the place, is very short in her answers and impolite.

In point form here is some things to note if you consider staying there.

Stairs no elevator: On arrival at Bali Bay, you will need to carry your own bags up all the stairs (plenty of stairs!!!!) as there is no elevator or help from the apartments.

Poor security: The garage door does not lock properly, a window in the apartment does not lock at all, no night time security or reception and the security alarm in the apartment does not work.

No air conditioning in the living room / television room / kitchen

No dishwasher liquid supplied to wash dishes

Very noisy apartment as it lies directly on the main road and you can hear and see all the traffic. Especially bad on weekends.

Lovely swimming pool but not heated.
