Superbe séjour, la vue de l'appartement (Dolphin) est fabuleuse sur Fish Hoek, False bay et les baleines si elles décident de passer par là ce qui a été notre cas! La literie est confortable, la salle de bain avec 1 douche + 1 baignoire et le coin cuisine bien équipé. Seul petit bémol il n'y a pas de chauffage et pour les jours sans soleil en septembre c'était un petit peu juste. Excellence séjour malgré ça, nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir, superbe.
