A lovely small guest house, 5 minutes form camps bay beach. Great large rooms, and views, a balcony that overlooks the 12 apostles and the sea. Great omelettes at breakfast and what the host does not know about dining in Cape Town, Camps Bay, Houts bay and Constantia is not worth knowing. Also, a great same day laundry service.A lovely...

My husband and I recently stayed at 51 on Camps for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. It is in a great location- just a short walk (5 minutes or so) to the Camps Bay promenade with all the restaurants and the beach. We stayed in the deluxe suite and the views are amazing. Two full walls are windows with...

If you are looking for the ultimate place to stay in Camps Bay this is it...far from the normal "B&B" expected this is just luxury. The attention to detail is unique and the staff clearly love being here. Merryl makes you feel so welcome and I just wish it could have been a longer stay.

A most enjoyable few days was had at 51 Camps Bay. Merryl is a wonderful host and willingly assisted us with any queries we had with suggestions, making bookings and the like. The staff too were lovelyl The location is very pretty and only a 5 minute walk to the beachfront and restaurants. A gorgeous spot.

We visited Capetown in April 2016 for our honeymoon and chose to stay at 51 on Camps Bay for 4 nights. It was the best decision we made. The location is picture perfect. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach front and the restaurants. It was such a pleasure being hosted by Merryl. She was extremely...

This guesthouse is in an excellent location in Camps Bay. It's a 5 minute (safe) walk to the beach and restaurants. We had a really great room with sea views.
