“Views are amazing - apartment needs some TLC.”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Great location and incredible views - especially at sunset. 20/25 minutes drive to V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain and situated within walking distance of numerous excellent bars and restaurants.

Parts of the decor and some of the equipment is looking a bit tired (kitchen drawers were broken, the bedroom carpet was stained and lights in the fridge and extractor fan weren't working). Some of the cupboards and drawers looked as if they hadn't been emptied for a while with very old pamphlets and other people's bits and pieces left behind. These are small niggles but disappointing. It's a pity that these small niggles existed as the apartment met our needs perfectly otherwise.

The owner was very helpful and topped up the wifi for us when it ran out and was very flexible on our check out time on our last day as we had a late flight home.

“Dream apartment, dream location”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Location, location, location. Stunning views, beautiful clean apartment, beautifully decorated, secure block, restaurants, bars, coffee shops within walking distance and 20 min away from the city Centre. Robin was the perfect landlord, so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I definitely will stay there again.

“Top Quality Accomodation in Top Quality Location!!”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This was the most modern, clean and tidy s/c accomodation we have stayed in around the world and the location was everything we we're promised! The views from the balcony to Table Mountain are a great way to start the day and sunset in January is spectacular on the horizon out to sea. Plenty of good restaurants and friendly local bars within walking distance of the apartment, and if you hire a car Cape Town and all the major local attractions are within 30 minutes drive. Driving in SA is easier than the UK and everything is extremely cheap given the strength of the pound. Robin the owner is extremely helpful and only to pleased to be contacted for help or advice, nothing is too much trouble! Go again? Without a doubt!

“"Very well travelled, yet best holiday ever"”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This property was exactly as advertised and previously reviewed. Zero issues with it- perfect location, perfect home away from home, love the views , the local restaurants, bars , shops and amenities. Near and easy access to Cape Town but far enough away to feel soo relaxed!
Cannot praise Robin enough ! He was so helpful before , during and after our stay with every little question and I had many !! We could have stayed another 2 weeks and still would have found something different to do and see every day or happily gone with the flow which was always endearing - was very much looking forward to this holiday but the location and comfort meant everything and strongly contributed to the holiday far exceeding expectations overall - Fantastic and even though we don't tend to return to same place , we will be returning here , exacting to 502 Portico!!! Thank you Robin for everything, you are a cool and helpful guy and all the best to you and yours ! Abi and Simon

“Great Location with fantastic views of Table Mountain”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Great apartment just outside Cape Town on the Western Seaboard. Easy to get into the city. Safe and secure parking. The apartment is large for two and is well equiped. Good restaurants and cafe bars around.
