The first thing you notice with this apartment is the View: Table Mountain, Robben Island - all from the sunny balcony. The apartment is one of the only truly beach front complexes in Blouberg. Most other advertised apartments are 300-500 meters back from the beach.
15 minutes to Cape Town and the waterfront, and the same distance the other way to numerous wine farms.
The apartment is at the very highest end of the market, furnished to 5 star standards, with secure underground parking and every mod-con you will need to make your stay in Blouberg an exciting and memorable one.
You can enjoy your sundowners from the balcony which overlooks the golden sands of Blouberg Beach with views of Table Mountain and Robben Island. THE VIEWS REALLY ARE BREATHTAKING.
Flights from the UK generally arrive early in the morning. If there is no booking staying overnight on the day of your arrival, the apartment will be made available for your use as soon as you arrive.

Blouberg is the ideal place to base yourself for a trip to Cape Town - Ideally located between the CBD/Camps Bay and the beautiful winelands area.
This laid back beach area is ideal for wind surfing, kite surfing, running, cycling and many other outdoor activities (including wine tasting!).
There are many restaurants, cafes, shops etc all within 1-2 mins walk of the apartment, and the newly opening Eden on the Bay area (with its cafes and restaurants) is a stroll along the beach.
Our representative will meet you on arrival to answer any queries you have of the surrounding area, and to show you around the apartment.
The Western Cape region
Holidaying in the Western Cape is like having a decades worth of holidays rolled into one. The gorgeous beaches, with their views of the unmistakable Table mountain, the amazing wine routes, the historical significance of Robben Island, amazing botanical gardens of Kirstenbosch, shark diving, whale watching, seal Island, swimming with penguins at Bolders, Two Oceans Acquarium, game reserves and the picturesque Garden route drive.
Portico is located in the perfect spot: Beach on your doorstep, sandwiched between the Cape Town Waterfront and the Winelands (15 mins either side).
Portico is located on the beachfront of Blouberg, approximately 15 minutes from Cape Town centre, and 30 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. The Durbanville Wine Route starts just fifteen minutes away, and further a field, the Stellenbosch and Paarl Wine Routes can be reached in 40 minutes.
Closer to home, there are bars and restaurants alongside the apartment, whilst cinemas, a large shopping complex and banks are within 5 minutes by car. One of the largest and most luxurious shopping malls can be found 10 minutes away at Canal Walk (the largest Mall in Africa), as can Ratanga Junction, a themed entertainment park. The Grand West Casino is 15 minutes drive away, and if you are feeling active, there are 2 gyms (Virgin Active and Planet Fitness just round the corner).
There are 2 local golf courses within 15 minutes of the apartment, and the Cape Town Waterfront shopping centre and tourist attraction is an easy 15 minutes drive away.
I can highly recommend the Blue Peter bar and restaurant down the road, where the canny locals go for a 'sundowner' whilst watching the sun disappear over Table Mountain, and there is an Italian deli on the ground floor, that is perfect for breakfast and lunch.

"Excellent weekend away - lovely apartment"
My wife and I had a lovely weekend away at Portico.
The apartment is well decorated, great location and has amazing views of Table Mountain.
We cooked dinner one night, and ate out the second night (lots of nice restaurants nearby).
Overall a great break and will stay again.

Really nice apartment, in a perfect location.
Myciti Bus station marine circle in 2 minutes walk, restaurants and fast food if you don't want to go far away for dinner, Carlucci bar with a free wifi downstair.
Great view from the balcony (sunny in the afternoon)
The only bad things: if the wind is in your direction, you can smell the KFC production!!

"Great views, great apartment, great service"
I booked 2 nights for a last minute getaway.
The service from Robin was very quick, friendly and efficient.
The apartment was spotless, beautifully decorated and the views were exactly as described.
We didn't use the car once, as there were lots of restaurants and things to do nearby.
A great getaway!

"Amazing Views...Great Location"
Myself and my partner stayed here for 9 nights late August to September 2011. The apartment has all you could want, good amenities, secure parking and building security. The views of Table Mountain and Robben Island are brilliant. The location is great, but a car is desirable if you want to get around at your leisure a number of restaurants a stones throw away but still peaceful, and Cape Town Tourist Information Centre by the beach opposite. Robin, the owner, was extremely helpful before and during our stay. If we are lucky enough to go back to Cape Town, we wouldn't hesitate in staying here again.
