About robin brown

My wife and I (I am from the UK, she is from Cape Town) bought this apartment brand new in 2008 and have been renting it as a holiday let whilst we lived in the UK.

In April 2010 we got married in Franschhoek (the winelands) and moved to Cape Town.

The apartment is amazing - however we moved into a larger house to cater for a growing family.

Either my wife or myself will meet you at the apartment and answer any queries you have. It is an amazing city, with so many things to see and do - and full of the nicest people in the world!

If you would like any information - about the apartment or the area, please get in touch.

all the best!

Why robin brown chose Table View

Blouberg can be whatever you want it to be. Quiet and relaxing, or hectic watersports.

There are numerous top quality restaurants and cafes in the area, as well as golf courses and wine estates. Oh - and the views!!!

You will need a car in cape town - and Blouberg is the perfect location for exploring Cape Town itself (15 minutes one way), and the winelands (40 minutes the other way to Stellenbosch, or 15 minutes to Durbanville).

Winelands and beach - my two favourite things!

What makes this apartment unique

Most other apartment rentals are not directly beach front. They will still have the views - but are 100 - 300 meters back from the beach.

Portico is the newest and most upmarket building on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an awesome spot. I couldn't believe it when i got here. Well finished and great views out over the beach. Perfect place to chill out and plenty places to eat and shop RHM Jo'Berg & London

Totally gorgeous flat! It was really modern and comfortable..I wish I could've stayed longer! Loads of restaurants and the view is amazing from the balcony... I'm hoping I'll be back! X Nina Logan, March 2008

We stayed at the apartment after 4 days in the winelands at a friends wedding - We had a wonderful time on the beach, and the views really are to die for. Many many thanks! Andrew & Irma Lloyd-Madrid, April 2010

Beachfront Apartment In Cape Town (Blouberg). Amazing Sea & Mountain Views!!
average rating of 4.6666665 based on 4 reviews

Great views, location good but description not quiet accurate!

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic views and well located for shopping mall, bars and restaurants. Owning my own rental property in Europe I can only rate the property on what I deliver. Maybe I’m a harsh critic!

Security regarding key collection I felt was an issue.

No ceiling fans as described. When you are out all day and especially during the high season fans are a must.

A safe would be a bonus for peace of mind.

No beach towels as per the advertisement.

General maintenance to the patio windows would be good as I alone would not have been able to open them. Luckily for me my husband could although they were very stiff.

This was our third visit to Cape Town and thoroughly enjoyed our stay however, I feel that with the above improvements this would have been a 5* review.

Special interest holidays:

There are kite surfing and other water sports facilities on the ground floor of the apartment block - for those wanting to hire equipment or have lessons.


Blouberg beach is famous for the location for those 'picture postcard' views of Table Mountain and the mother city. Its a long stretch of beach, with golden sand, and famous for water sports.

Down the far end of the beach is the Blue Peter bar and restaurant, where the canny locals go for a 'sundowner' whilst watching the sun disappear over Table Mountain and there is an amazing Italian deli on the ground floor of the apartment building, that is perfect for breakfast and lunch.


Cape Town International airport is 20 minutes drive away. 99% of visitors to cape town do hire a car (as public transport is slightly limited).

That being said - The brand new MyCiti bus service now operates from Blouberg runs from Blouberg to the centre of Cape Town and the V&A Waterfront.


Cape Town centre 15km. Durbanville Wine Estates 8km. Winelands (Stellenbosch & Franschhoek) 50km. Cape Town international airport 20km.
