From journal Resorts in Cape Town
What I enjoyed the most was the one-bedroom unit. The bed is located in a loft-type room, and you have a panoramic window that allows you to see everything without having to leave the bed. The one-bedroom has a tub in the bathroom and a full kitchen. The three-bedroom unit is amazingly big and comfy, with a huge balcony on a lower level, so if you leave the balcony door open, you can fall asleep listening to the waves crashing on the rocks.
The studio unit was good for two adults. The best part of this unit was the view since it was higher up, and you could walk to the street rather than wait for the elevator.

Bantry Bay is in a very nice neighborhood with up-scale housing, condos and business hotels. After our initial discovery, we started our mornings by walking a couple of blocks to a Coffee Bar/small grocery store that served latte, a variety of bagels and our favorite, lox and bagels. On our walks we noticed that every morning driveways and sidewalks are washed clean.
The condo is decorated in bright "beach" type colors that put us into a holiday mood the minute we entered. We had a two-bedroom condo with the living room and master bedroom opening onto the balcony. There was a full size kitchen and eating area. The bedrooms were small and might be crowded for a family, but since it was just two of us we had plenty of room.
Amenities include covered parking, daily cleaning, prompt laundry service, and a very pleasant and helpful staff. Although the parking is covered it is not enclosed and sea spray deposits salt on the cars. Typical of the excellent service of the staff, one of the parking attendants washed our car during our stay. There were options for tours and food delivery as well, but we did not take advantage of these services. We used our Time Share to reserve the Bantry Bay Condo so we did not pay a nightly rate.
Bantry Bay Condos (RCI) are an ideal beachhead to explore Cape Town from. Conveniently located close to Cape Town City Center, the Victoria and Alfred Wharf (V&A), and the Table Mountain Cable Car these sights are less than 10 minutes away. Victoria Road that passes in front of the Bantry Bay Condos winds south to Hout Bay and beyond. Unfortunately while we were there the road was closed south of Hout Bay with a sign suggesting you could drive further, but at your own risk. There are other highways convenient to Victoria Road that will take you to the very tip of the Cape.
