Trendy Ocean Apart­ments

SLOW Magazine - - Edition 43 -

While space – and bud­get – does not af­ford many of us the lux­ury of liv­ing in Cape Town’s iconic Camps Bay, the glam­our of a hol­i­day there is now within reach – thanks to the 29 five-star, self­ca­ter­ing lux­ury hol­i­day op­tions of­fered by the Blue Views Col­lec­tion.

The prop­er­ties in the Blue Views Col­lec­tion range from stu­dio apart­ments and glam­orous vil­las to a five-star ho­tel. No mat­ter which of the prop­er­ties you choose, you will never be fur­ther than 100 m from ei­ther the se­cluded Bakoven beach or the vi­brant Camps Bay beach­front. Apart from Stu­dio 1 and 2, all of the prop­er­ties have ac­cess to a swim­ming pool, so you can cool off in the pri­vacy of your own ac­com­mo­da­tion after a fun-filled day of ac­tiv­i­ties in this tourist hotspot.

The flag­ship prop­erty of the Blue Views Col­lec­tion is the five-bed­room Pent­house 2. Un­doubt­edly one of the At­lantic Se­aboard’s most sought-after apart­ments, Pent­house 2 is sit­u­ated be­tween Camps Bay and Bakoven, of­fer­ing the per­fect base from which to ex­plore the area. All of the bed­rooms are en suites, and the pent­house has com­pli­men­tary Wi-fi and mon­i­tored se­cu­rity, as well as in­clu­sive ser­vice from Mon­day to Satur­day.

This lux­ury beach­side pent­house comes com­plete with a 100 m2 out­side en­ter­tain­ment area with an 8 m glass­fronted pool. The out­door space is the per­fect spot in which to re­lax and watch the sun­set, with a glass wine in hand while soft mu­sic plays from the stereo sys­tem in the lounge.

All of the prop­er­ties, in­clud­ing Pent­house 2, have a min­i­mal­is­tic feel­ing about them, al­low­ing the beauty of their sur­round­ings to speak for them­selves. Con­tem­po­rary, up­mar­ket de­signs com­pli­ment the set­ting of the trendy area in which th­ese apart­ments are found.

Be­cause Blue Views is not a rental agent, all of the prop­er­ties in­clude a concierge ser­vice, as well as daily ser­vic­ing. As a re­sult, the Blue Views Col­lec­tion seam­lessly blends the con­ve­nience of a lux­ury ho­tel with the pri­vacy of self-cater­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion.

For those who pre­fer the feel­ing of a lux­ury ho­tel, South Beach is the Blue Views Col­lec­tion’s own bou­tique ho­tel. Sit­u­ated less than 50 m from the world fa­mous Camps Bay beach­front with its pop­u­lar restau­rants and bustling night-life, this ho­tel is the ul­ti­mate in vi­brant hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions. All 19 suites are sea-fac­ing, have a feel­ing of spa­cious and up­mar­ket lux­ury, and in­clude ei­ther a bal­cony or pri­vate pa­tio area.

South Beach is still self-cater­ing, but of­fers the same feel­ing of stay­ing in a ho­tel, as it is equipped with all the ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties one would ex­pect from a ho­tel, such as a pri­vate gym, a guest laun­dry, com­pli­men­tary bi­cy­cles, and pub­lic bar area. South Beach even in­cludes break­fast, al­beit non-tra­di­tional in terms of ho­tel norms. Your re­frig­er­a­tor is stocked daily with a se­lec­tion of break­fast items, and freshly baked crois­sants and baguettes are de­liv­ered to your door, al­low­ing you to en­joy break­fast in your gown and slip­pers in the pri­vacy of your suite.

For art lovers, South Beach also dis­plays an ex­clu­sive art col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing works by well-known South African artist Lionel Smit. A lim­ited edi­tion Marieke Prinsloo sculp­ture also en­livens the up­stairs pool and bar area.

While liv­ing in Camps Bay might only be a dream for some, hol­i­day­ing in this iconic beach sub­urb can be a grand re­al­ity to those who choose to stay at one of the lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion of­fer­ings of the Blue Views Col­lec­tion.
