This house is split over a few levels. Views are amazing and its a great space for groups of people. I felt very safe as there are no signs etc advertising that it is a tourist house. The rooms are rustic but have everything you need. Plenty of large spaces for groups to gather both inside and outside and around...

If you are into self catering then Camps Bay Glen is the place for you. Its about 10min walk to the camps bay beach and the sea point promenade where they are all kinds of shops and restuarants. It has that nature feel when you arrive,stayed there for 4 nights and we had a lovely time.

When we walked into Camps Bay Glen I just became quiet, the almost forest like garden was full of surprises that made me feel so sterile. Steps lead us to little different areas to cater for every mood. I could sit and read while listening to the stream, gather with friends in a forest setting, braai on our own patio,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Campsbayglen is a little gem on the edge of a nature reserve "Glen". A beautiful rustic, down to earth natural setting with a unique river & wild waterfalls flowing through the garden that has a leafy green forest feel at the river which is a great place to cool down after the heat and sun of the pool area. We also have a rustic hammock lounge at the giant pool to laze around in and relax and with sun beds around the pool. There is an easy walk to the beach and to do Table mountain hikes. An exquisite and unique feel of nature and beauty is Campsbayglen. we are a rustic earthy place with no Stars. We try to give a sense of maximum privacy by breaking the garden and pool areas into different parts and places for people. We even have a sleeper day bed over the river. Book the whole house or go for a self catering studio. THERE ARE 3 INDEPENDENT, Own Entrance self catering studio Apartments,- Each is fully equipped for self catering and with own toilet shower & toilet. STUDIO A - MAIN HOUSE. Has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & kitchen and lounge and its best space is the huge terrace with sea views. Studio B and C are smaller & ideal for couples or small family's or friends. See the pictures. Best rates are through our official Campsbayglen website direct. I do give discounts & will happily advise on travel. I am a fanatical lover of nature and know a lot about South Africa. ... more   less
