The largest of the three apartments, the top level of 17 Geneva’s stylish décor and understated elegance is relaxing and easy on the eyes.
An antique-style desk in one corner allows die-hard workaholics an opportunity to do some work in relative privacy, even while on holiday. A moderate-sized lounge, furnished with a flat screen TV and DSTV, opens onto a partially covered balcony with a private sauna around the corner and a gorgeous view of the ocean and surrounding mountains. The apartment is close enough to the sea to scent brine upon the breeze, yet a screen of foliage affords a modicum of privacy and adds to the intimate ambienc...e. Enjoy the sense of seclusion that this apartment’s location and design imparts, even though it is situated in one of the most popular areas in Cape Town. It is also within convenient walking distance of the beach and a selection of trendy restaurants.
The private swimming pool is an ideal place to unwind after a hard day’s sightseeing, and a heater is provided to warm chilly toes during the colder months. The cosy bedroom also has a view of the ocean and access to the balcony as well as the sauna, for intimate evenings spent with cocktail in hand amid the steam. An en-suite bathroom is designed to cater to the most discerning needs with its generous full-glass shower and built in cupboards.
The immaculate open-plan kitchen boasts stainless steel counter tops and grey, marble-style floor tiles, which give an ultra-modern air to the apartment, as well as the impression that one could eat off the floor, yet still not be too afraid to walk on it. The kitchen comes equipped with most of the essentials of home, including a modern cooker, fridge with freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.
On-street parking is available close to the apartment gate, where vehicles will be safe in this prestigious area of Camps Bay.

wifi was not working and the bed linen was dirty.
the real condition of the appartment is not as good as it is shown on the pictures.
it was pretty cold, so we sleeped the first two nights in our cloth. the radiotor was to small to heat the rooms. Read more
Thank you for your review and for your photos. I have raised all the above with the owner and he has informed us that you should most certainly have had a more pleasant stay. He had in fact purchased brand new linen and this was sadly not used. We have rectified this.
As to the carpet: this is an old Persian rug which admittedly is falling apart and has since been replaced. The owner intends on putting the new rug in this next week.
As to the furniture: you will have noticed that the general style of the property is somewhat 'vintage-chic'. The chair is yet another example of this. It might not be to everyone's liking but it is a piece non the less.
Lastly, the property is open plan and we agree that just one heater will not suffice to heat up the entire area. We have raised this as well and the owner intends to make provisions for future winter bookings.
I have spoken to my Guest Relations team and they were not aware that your WiFi was not working. Had we known, we would have re-set the router and you should not have experienced any hassles
All of the above aside, we are sad to hear that you did not enjoy your time with us. We do hope you return again and allow us the opportunity to rectify and create new, positive holiday memories
All the best

A home away from home

We liked the property from the very first second we entered in: we found a bright, spacious, warm, homey place. The interior is a great mixture of different styles going extremely well together - it is a modern property truly upgraded with some "old times" details which give a soul to the place. The apartment is widely open to a private, nicely manicured garden, so we simply got much more space to enjoy in our privacy. There is a sauna on the veranda, and that was for our use only, again. The location of the property is superb: just a few steps away from the beach, but still very quiet as it is overlooking the garden. And, if you are tall enough, you can see the ocean from the veranda :) To make this long story short: we would love to come back! Read more
Thanks for your review. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

It is a nice apartment which filled our expectations. It would have been better if it had air conditioning or a ceiling fan (especially at the sleeping room). An iron would also have been useful. The rest was perfect. Read more
