Ebb Tide Apartments
Beautifully located the Ebb Tide Apartments are two über-modern flats that offer all the privacy and contemporary gizmos you’d expect from the bigger, brasher boutique hotels in Cape Town. Park your car in the basement and, in true VIP-style, a secure elevator takes you directly to your super-sleek pad. Sophisticated state-of-the-art techno-wizardry (intelligent lighting, single panel electronic control for everything from surround sound to air-conditioning) augments the modern design aesthetic, while double-glazing works hard to keep traffic noise at bay: Bang on Victoria Road (along which there is a constant flow of traffic during the summer), the duplex penthouse has fabulous views over one of Camps Bay’s pretty tourist-free coves, and you’re a short stroll from the miniature beaches of Bakoven. Open-plan design of Ebb Tide Apartments and the use of gleaming white surface, natural fabrics in shades of grey and pale wood underfoot gives the apartments a cool gallery-like sensibility.
