Lawhill Penthouse Apartment

Sue Pickford

All of the arrangements you made were fantastic, the transfers went very smoothly, which always takes the stress out of the holiday. We loved the Lawhill apartments - so convenient and beautifully appointed and we had a fabulous time in Cape Town des pite the less-than-brilliant weather.

The Lawhill Apartments were fantastic, we were upgraded to the penthouse as they didn't allocate us a pool apartment. Very hospitable staff, location fantastic, really spacious and modern apartment. We loved it. Shark cage diving was great and the de ep sea fishing with Sustain Fishing was really fun, the boys caught plenty of fish and Kurt went out of his way to make sure it was a successful day. Cape Town was lovely, the waterfront is very similar to our Darling Harbour in Sydney so we felt very at home, plenty of bars and restaurants to rest in after activity filled days. We abseiled Table Mountain which was pretty scary actually.

Our stay in Cape town was also fantastic. The apartment was brilliant - so much room - and it was right to be so central. Because we had the guided tours we didn't need the car at all during the first three days - I should have thought of that. It wa s most useful on the last part of our fourth day!
