Guest access

A Short 280 metres walk onto Thompsons Bay beach famous for its Stunning huge Rock Tidal pool which is shallow and fun for kids too, plus 3 x secluded sheltered quiet secret beach coves to explore through the magical ""Hole-In- The-Wall'' rock feature. ( see Trip Advisor for reviews of Thompsons Bay Beach and Conde Naste review of Thompsons bay being one of the top 100 finest beaches on earth). Back at the unit we have a large BBQ to ''braai'' on the front lawn. The Swimming Pool in complex is free to use and also has a lovely ''open to all'' BBQ facility at the pool available to use if you would like to sit around the pool and Braai which is free our guests. ( just make your own fire to Braai). Also Free use of the Tennis court too -we have plenty of tennis racquets in the cupboard but please bring your own tennis balls as these seem to go missing very quickly. We have Dart board on the verandah (..again, just bring your own darts as these often go missing too). Boarding , snorkelling , Swimming, Fishing off the rocks all just 300 metres away from the front door. We have 4 Boogie boards in the cupboard to use at the beach and also 2 beach umbrellas, beach chairs, cooler bags for drinks etc etc. Bath towels are provided per person, but please bring your own Beach Towels. (Note that the beach is only 280m away from our door, but there is a road to cross over between our complex and the beach.) The Tap water is perfectly safe for drinking so no need to spend extra on buying bottled water. And finally - this is Africa after all so please remember when you are leaving the apartment to head to the beach to put away any food into the cupboards or fridge because when there is no one at home and the MONKEYS are around and often pop in through the windows to snatch a snack of any food which is left easily accesible if they can! Free daily cleaning service of the unit to make beds, clean bathrooms, sweep the entire unit, take out garbarge etc so you can just relax.

Interaction with guests

If there is anything required at any time feel free to contact me on my cellphone at any time. Alternatively the Security Guards a the main gate are very helpful with advice of where to go and calling Taxis etc if you are not using Uber.

Other things to note

Our unit is 100% self catering. Coffee and Tea is provided for the first morning only. All other food / drinks for your stay can be purchased from the supermarkets in the area. Bath Towels are provided for your stay but lease bring your own beach towels. The cleaning staff will make up all the beds everyday, sweep the units, clean the bathrooms & kitchen and take out the trash daily. Please use the dishwasher provided in the unit for washing dishes as the cleaning staff do not wash dishes. All dishwasher detergents are provided for this. Just a note that The sound of a noisy engine car driving along the road in front of the complex would be heard from the apartment from time to time on a quiet still night but this is more of an exception than rule, however it may affect very light sleepers who require total silence for sleep, similarly the sound of the waves breaking on the beach on a still night can also be heard from the apartment too. Use Uber to get to any of the 4 huge shopping centres about 3km up the hill when you want to shop, its easier than driving yourself. We do not have Wifi yet as we are waiting for the recently laid fibre cables to be connected - but your Vodacom or MTN sim card for data works perfectly. ( Just Cell C signal is weak inside the unit so often only works well on the verandah )

Jean-Marc is a wonderful host.The apartment is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The view is lovely, as well as the shared garden and pool area. The complex is secure and very close to the beach. The daily cleaning service that is included in the price is very thoughtful. A truly memorable stay for us and our friends from the States.

Great location. Comfortable beds and well equipped with everything one needs.We felt very safe in the complex and a easy walk to beach and wonderful tidal pool. Wonderful restaurant in close proximity that I can recommend is Mozambik Portuguese restaurant.

Response from Jean-Marc:
Hi Esther. I will take up the issue of the loo rolls with the contracted cleaning company, i agree that it is unacceptable. Dishcloths are usually in the cupboard under the sin, I will go and run a check to see. I think the bathroom window has been closed more than usual recently due to all the rain, I will ensure it is left open. Thanks so much for the feedback. JM

Great place to stay for a family! Walking distance to the beach, nice lawn in the front of the apartment for kids to play and lovely pool in the complex. Apartment has everything you would need to make things easy like washing machine, tumble dryer and a dish washer. Daily clean an added bonus especially at the beach with all the sand.

Response from Jean-Marc:
Oh my goodness! Im so sorry to hear about the fall Peta., I had no idea of the accident .I have forwarded your suggestion to the Body Corporate and asked them to consider changing the sprayer times. I hope the injury recovers speedily. We feel really terrible about this, Please advise if the medical costs were covered by a medical aid? All body corporates have to have 3rd party injury insurance so if necessary we could try to institute a claim against the Insurer for any shortfall in medical costs? Please accept Our sincere Apologies, Jean-Marc and Tessa.

Jean- Marc is attentive and we found his home was as appeared from the Air BnB profile. The check- in process was simple, the apartment was exceptionally child-friendly our sons absolutely loved it! The beach is literally across the road, everything is a stone throw away and the daily cleaning service is an added touch.
