Recommended apartments in Cape Town: The Bakoven and the Valhalla
Every city is, in its own way, unique, and if you can’t see why it’s generally because you’re not looking hard enough. In some places, however, this is easier to see than others, and the topography of Cape Town is genuinely one of a kind. Comparable to a modernist painting, the inimitable characteristics of the Mother City are very quick to jump out at you.
The South African city is full of impossible textures and shapes: the trees which reverberate off the roads where the wind hits the mountain; the boxy, garish Cape Town apartments in Bo-Kaap; the softness of the beach; and above all the angles of the distinctive landmark that is the omnipresent Table Mountain, which towers over the proceedings of the city.
Cape Town accommodation
Our recommended apartments in Cape Town this week are placed outside of the city bowl and on the other side of Table Mountain, in Clifton and Camps Bay. In these upmarket areas, some of the most expensive real estate in South Africa and some of the best beaches in the world can be found. As well as more manmade attractions, such as a palm-tree-lined promenade with some excellent restaurants, the multicoloured blanket of a sunset over the mountain and sea of this area is one of the most incredible things you’ll ever see.
The Valhalla apartment, perfect for a couple on a romantic getaway, has an incredible view of the beaches of Clifton. Nestled onto the fifth floor (there are both stairs and a lift), it is a great example of Cape Town luxury. The spacious balcony allows you to drink in the incredible Cape Town atmosphere from the comfort of your own home. You also enjoy a barbeque, free parking and cable TV.
Allowing plenty of space for up to five people, the Bakoven apartment is situated next to Camps Bay. Containing a palatial living room, spa-like bathrooms and a large terrace with picnic table and sun loungers, this is the perfect apartment to get away from it all. The nightime lights around the bay, as well as the view over the Twelve Apostles mountain range and the ocean, could be something from a dream.
