Overview

Sea Five is a luxurious boutique guesthouse located in the Camps Bay area of Cape Town. It’s conveniently just 300 metres from the beach and looks out on to the ocean, while also offering wonderful views of Table Mountain. Styled as a ‘beach house with a difference’, the property has just seven bedrooms and a pleasant and relaxed, contemporary feel.

The accommodation comprises four room categories. Garden Rooms are set on the ground floor and are designed to be bright and airy; each one with a private garden area complete with outdoor furniture. Mountain Suites, as their name suggests, offer stunning views of the nearby mountain scenery, looking out onto Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range. Then there’s the Ocean Suite, which faces the ocean and has a private terrace offering broad, sweeping views of the coastline. The largest option by far is the Penthouse Suite, which comes with two bedrooms and bathrooms, along with a private lounge and four terraces. All rooms come with air conditioning, underfloor heating in the bathrooms, satellite TV and a personal in-room bar. Room design pays homage to seaside villas found throughout the Mediterranean, with touches of South African heritage as well.

Camps Bay is one of Cape Town’s most upmarket areas and while Sea Five is located in a quieter part of the vibrant suburb, it’s still well positioned for exploring the immediate area and the rest of the city. Camps Bay is popular with tourists and locals alike, especially during the summer months. There are several white sand beaches to visit, as well as plenty of trendy shops, gourmet restaurants and sophisticated bars. Many also enjoy hiking and exploring the area’s many scenic nature trails.

When not out exploring the city and its diverse suburbs, guests are free to unwind at the guesthouse. There’s a tranquil garden, as well as an outdoor pool with sun loungers and a bar serving light meals and refreshing drinks. Children are welcome, and while there is no designated babysitting service or particular child-related facilities, there’s plenty for all age groups to enjoy in the surrounding area.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!
