Perfect location to explore both North and South Cape as well as East and West
Lovely large studio apartment with large and comfortable KS bed, settee and chair and tables, WiFi and small pool in quiet and secluded garden with mature trees and plants. Very safe. Minutes from a shopping mall, the fabulous secluded beach at Nordhoek, as well as the Farm village and restaurants with live music, and from the Ou Kaapse Weg nature reserve and pass to Constantia vineyards and Kirstenbosch as well as the amazing Chapman's Peak coastal drive to Hout Bay. 10 minbutes from bohemian Kalk Bay and tthe drive to Cape Point nature reserve. All parts of the Cape are so easily and quickly reachable from Sun Valley. Very friendly and helpful hosts- with possibility to doing a wash and iron for a small fee. As there are 2 studios side by side, perfect to share with friend or family but each with privacy and own bathroom and mini kitchen.
Great place, great location, great hosts.
We REALLY enjoyed staying at the 2OceansApartments. The apartments were clean and perfect size for us. It is in a great location! The hosts, Anja and Thomas Ostermann were wonderful! Anything we needed they were quick to help out. They even took the time to show us on the map where some of the common tourist attractions are located. We would stay there again and would highly recommend them to anyone!
Basic and disappointing
We were very disappointed with our stay. Partly this was our fault for mis-understanding the advert. This is a studio room, as it says at one point on the ad, NOT a one bedroom, as it says at another point on the ad. (The picture of the exterior, which looks fab, is actually of 2 units not 1.) If you're a couple, wanting an inexpensive base and you don't want to do anything other than very basic cooking, don't want to do laundry and don't need the internet, then go ahead. On the positive side, the pool is lovely.
However, it is totally unsuitable for a couple with a small child, as we are. To expect the little one to sleep on a turned-to-face-the-wall sofa is crazy, and even when we got the cot our little girl had a lot of trouble staying asleep if we wanted to cook or do anything. It's fine in most respects, but very, very basic. No TV channels to speak of. No soap provided, even for washing hands. The internet is wired, not wi-fi, and you're restricted to how much internet you can use because their usage is capped. Anja will do washing for you if you pay extra, and does a good job, but that and the internet mounts up.
We just never felt comfortable there. The list of do’s and don’ts you get when you hand over the cash is a bit like school, and maybe ok for students but wasn’t for us (We were never going to have loud parties, but we might have wanted to invite a guest back!). Our little girl got a little (washable) crayon on a sheet and a lounger cover and Anja wrote us a post-it note about it rather than have a quiet word. Little things like that give you a bad feeling. They use solar heating for hot water with no electric back-up which meant the water in the morning was never hot enough for a good shave. The bed, which is advertised as big, IS wide (it’s two singles pushed together) but you then have the crack down the middle plus it’s got a tailboard, and if you’re over 6 feet tall it’s simply too small for a good night’s sleep. I’m sorry to be negative, but you can see from our glowing reviews elsewhere that we don’t carp for the sake of it. It just didn’t work for us.
The accommodation and hosts were absolutely wonderful. The apartments are furnished and finished to a high standard and suitable for all self catering. Situation is in a quiet area and near a shopping mall with supermarket and restaurants,which is ideal. I highly recommend this for a very reasonable stay whilst in Cape Town. You will definitely want to return.
GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY
This has been everything we wanted - excellent location, good quality accommodation, great for self-catering (or just making sandwiches for the next day on the road!) and a great price!!!
Silvermine and other attractions close by!
Not sure what this says in German? but we loved our return stay here and highly recommend it.
Don't know what the above says!!?
Go swimming at Fish Hoek beach, diving or snorkeling in the False Bay or with the penguins at Boulders Beach. The spot for surfers is Kommetjie. Horses can be ridden in Noordhoek or you can go hiking in the surrounding Silvermine National Park. Discover the caves in our surrounding mountains or make the 'Baboon Walk' with baboons. Take a 'sundowner' at Noordhoek beach and visit the trendy restaurants in the harbour of Kalk Bay, historic Simonstown or in the nearby Long Beach Mall shopping center in Sun Valley with many shops, supermarkets, Internet cafes and cinemas.
From September through to November you can watch the whales from the coastshore. Play golf at nearby Clovelly Country Club. A short ride on the Chapman's Peak Drive takes you to Hout Bay with its Robben Island, to Camps Bay Beach, to Cape Town's bustling Waterfront and famous Table Mountain. The tip of Africa, the Cape of Good Hope and an ostrich farm is just a short drive to the south along some stunning beaches.
