It's all about location at this family-run guesthouse, set in a fynbos (literally ‘fine bush') garden between the Twelve Apostles range and the rocky shoreline, in Camps Bay's neighbouring suburb of Bakoven. Rooms are crisp, white and minimal, and each has a private balcony or terrace to enjoy the views.
