Six of us stayed in this fabulous apartment. It is very spacious and we didn't feel cramped at all. There are three floors, with a small swimming pool, 4 patios and 5 bedrooms. The most wonderful aspect is that each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The apartment is very close to the restaurants nearby and the beach. It is very safe and secure. And the friendly cleaning ladies are helpful and hardworking.
However, the wifi was not very strong, so if you have 6 people each using the i-phone or i-pad, it became problematic. There was also only one full length mirror in the whole apartment. And the staircase is made out of glass, so it was a bit difficult to walk up and down.
Overall, it is a wonderful apartment and our trip in Cape Town was fun and memorable. I'd recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to spend their vacation in style.
Thank you for your review of our 43 Central Villa. Its an exquisite property, idelly located in the serene setting. The property is very spacious and your thoughts to add more mirrors is a welcomed request we will forward to the owners. The prperty also features an elevator for those who are wary of walking the glass staircase (which is rather grand in truth!).
Wifi in South Africa has yet to compete at an international level, that said great improvements are being made daily to ensure that our guests are always online (even if a little bit slower...it is a vacation after all!)
Thank you for your recommendations and we look forward to welcoming you back to a Nox Villa soon

"An absolute pleasure"
Left on 02/27/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Feb 27, 2014Stayed Feb 2014
I have stayed in several rental houses in Cape Town throughout the years,
and Solstice will absolutely stay among the top 5 stars. From check-in to check-out, everything was running smoothly.
The house itself - amazing! Withdrawn from the street, with stunning views over Camps Bay Beach and Lions Head. Superb terrace and outdoor areas with a clean refreshing pool. Wilma, the maid made sure that everything was kept in perfect order and clean as a hospital or. We brought friends who had their first Cape Town experience, and they didn't want to leave.We'll be back!
Thank you for your wonderful review! This 5 bed magnificence never fails to impress. We are so pleased you had a wonderful time and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future

"The Best Stay Ever !!!"
Left on 06/14/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 14, 2013Stayed May 2013
I have traveled to many foreign destinations & stayed at different Luxury hotels & apartments, but the stay at 43 Central Drive was Simply the best experience our Group of 9 pax ever had. The Villa is Well planned, Luxurious, Clean & fully maintained. The Location is Excellent & view Breathtaking. Mathew the Caretaker is a Very Pleasant Person & takes pride in keeping the Villa & Guests in Good care. We will definitely go back to Cape Town & spend a full week in the Villa. Wish the Villa was on wheels, we would have got it to Mumbai.
43 Central is such an amazing property - we don't blame you for wanting to put it on wheels and take it with you! And Mathew is a legend, he is like the cherry on the cake.
We do hope to welcome you back soonest at 43 Central

"Nice house but no privacy"
Left on 08/29/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 29, 2012Stayed Aug 2012
The villa is very spacious and offers a nice view of the ocean, it is very convenient for people in wheelchairs, we have just used our ramp travel for the first and only step on the main entrance. The interior is spacious and well decorated. The weak point is the lack of privacy we had with us every day the person in charge of maintenance of the villa 8hrs30mn / 9 hrs until 15hrs/16hrs. He was for examùple installed in the living room for ironing linen, telephone ... we had no privacy. We also regret that we do pay cash 330 rand for the provision of a cot for 3 nights, we were asked the same amount for the provision of a high chair, we do the not have taken it. During the month we spent in South africa in others luxury villas with same price , this is the only time we had to pay for it. The day of departure the person in charge of the house came to 8hrs30mn with 2 others peoples, we were not welcome! These people are charming,but holidays for us is with the alone family !
Thank you for your feedback. I trust you have received my email. As to the points raised regarding the baby equipment, this is (as per our original correspondence with you) not something we have in stock and which we hire in. No guest is ever obliged to make use of the equipment as we respect that you might not want to pay extra for this. However we do make sure that the suppliers we use are the very best with the most competitive prices.
Any and all work taking place in a property is only ever conducted when our guests give the 'ok' or when the required work is essential. Matthew (who will have cleaned daily) is confirmed to only have been in the property from 9am on wards. I am still rather confused as to the people there on the day of your departure and await word from the property managers on this as we will only have gone in to depart you on that day.
I do hope you enjoyed your time in SA regardless and am pleased that you found the property to be spacious and convenient.

"Stunning Property - Great experience"

Stayed for 7 nights at 43 Central Drive in Camps Bay; left a few days ago and wish we were back there right now! The place is absolutely beautiful and has all the space that you could ever need. The appliances and trappings are top notch -- if you need something (like a grill spatula, it is probably in one of the drawers or cabinets. The location of the property is outstanding -- one block behind the Bay Hotel and the shops in Camps Bay. I felt extremely safe in the property and in the neighborhood. We would sit on the balcony in the evening with a glass of outstanding S.African wine and listen to the calming surf. Matthew, the housekeeper, was very friendly and keeps the house spotless. It is a rare opportunity in one's life to stay at the property/mansion as nice as this one -- in america, a beautiful beach-front villa like this property would be valued at $10-$15Million Usdollars.
Nox Rentals treated us with great service and courtesy. I would highly recommend this property and Nox Rentals to anyone I know. I will be back.
Each and every day we stop and take a look at our view and personally it blows me away at how lucky we are to stay in a beautiful country like this.
To know that you enjoyed your stay and your time with us is magnificent - it has also made us all want to grab a bottle of wine and head on down to that balcony!! You are 100% correct - it really is outstanding!
We look forward to welcoming you back to Cape Town again in the not too distant future
All the best from the Cape

"Excellent - a huge amount of space and outstanding views"
Left on 12/12/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | SteveReviewed Dec 12, 2011Stayed Oct 2011
We were met on arrival, shown the property, introduced to the staff. House is very large, simply furnished but all absolutely right for the house. The verandas were massive and well furnished. The rooms were all large, tastefully decorated and very clean. The views were outstanding and the property just a minutes walk from the shops and restaurants of Camps Bay. The only problem we had was with the light switches - what did they all do? I don't think we had them all nailed down even at the end!
We are so glad you had such a great time at one of our Villas.
Looking forward to welcoming you back soon.

43 Central is a spectacular modern home overlooking Camps Bay in Cape Town. The prime location, easy access to the beach, restaurants, and amazing views make for an over the top experience. I would recommend 43 Central to anyone visiting Cape Town
