“Exceptional view, comfort living, privacy and friendly staff”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My teenage son and I enjoyed late afternoon views of the sea followed by the evening city lights from the comfort of the open plan kitchen & lounge as well as the lower floor bedroom.
The presidential suite is situated with direct access to the pool with uninterrupted sea view.
The accommodation is pristinely clean with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay.
George, the maintenance guy met us at the premises with a lovely welcome.
Neill the owner was extremely diligent in forwarding us GPS details per sms a day prior to our travel in order for us to navigate our way up the hill to the premises.
Within the span of two days, we enjoyed meals at the very nearby bikini beach, swam in the sea, shopped at vendors and travelled along the seaside visiting smaller towns towards the direction of Hermanus, where we had close encounters with penguins!
I would recommend this establishment to anyone who enjoys privacy, quiet, comfort, & exceptional views.

“Best family weekend in years!”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were 2 families who had a blast at Bikini Beach Manor. Niall and Victoria welcomed us and gave us a tour before we settled. We couldn't take our eyes off the magnificent view! The Presidential suite had everything we needed and more.
We had many plans for excursions in Gordon's Bay but decided against some of them to rather enjoy the comfort and views of the Presidential suite.
If you want to recharge your batteries, this is the place to do it at!
Thank you Niall and team!

“AWESOME VIEWS”
Reviewed February 8, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Bikini Beach Manor has the most awesome views out over False Bay to Cape Town. It is high end upmarket accommodation at a very reasonable price. The Presidential Apartment is a modern, luxurious and very spacious apartment with top quality furniture and fittings and is equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing luxury holiday. Booking is easy, staff on site are friendly and efficient. There is a Spar 3km away for all your requirements. A truly amazing place to stay.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our oldest daughter's wedding took place in Cape Town and we had to fly our whole family down from Johannesburg plus find accommodation big enough for 8 adults and close enough to the venue.

The Presidential suite provided us with this and so much more. All service was prompt and efficient (they even arranged a cot for our baby granddaughter).

We have never stayed in such a prime location with such stunning finishing and such a spectacular view. Even the weather played along for a few days allowing us to enjoy time on the balcony overlooking the magical Gordon's Bay.

Thank you Niall.

“Extraordinary hospitality by Niall Mongan”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The presidential apartment, wow, what can I say...awesome, superb, stunning, every facet of the apartment. World class standard for sure!
Niall went totally the extra mile to make our stay memorable.
A big thank you from my daughter for making her birthday extra special.
This was our 4th stay at his accommodation, and my family and I want to go nowhere else.
We've traveled locally and abroad and are yet to find such genuine hospitality.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

All we were hoping for was that this place delivered on the promises made in the description which it did. We had seen some pictures of the views and there was no fancy use of the camera or the lighting etc. The views are stunning from the terrace. We stayed in the presidential. Floor to ceiling windows on one side looking out onto the pool and Gordons Bay. Everything was smooth when we arrived. We were made comfortable from the off. We travel frequently and it's rare that we are more than content when we arrive at most holiday apartments. It's 5 minutes from local shops and amenities and nicely located on the mountain side
Definitely recommend this place. You'll see it advertised as Bikini Beach Manor. The only slight problem was the internet connection can be a bit slow but you'll find this in most parts of SA.

“wouw location!!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This really is a 'wouw' location to spend your Holidays!!!!!!
We stayed 1 week in the Royal apartment and 2 weeks in the Presidential Apartment in March.
Both apartments are beautifull decorated and have a fantastic view!!!!!!! We couldn't get enough of it!!
When you walk out of the Presidential Apartment, you are straight on the swimming pool and you don't have the impression being in a apartment but in a beautifull villa!
Every apartment has his own private entrance on the outside.
We go back next year and will recomment this place to all our friends!
