Please note that Seahorse is just a few steps away from and overlooks a small secluded beach and is immediately surrounded by several other beach bungalows whose full-time residential owners cherish the peace and quiet of this very special beachfront “neighbourhood”. With this in mind, we are obliged to stipulate that it is a strict term and condition of renting Seahorse that no-one other than the maximum number of guests notified to Cape Portfolios and whose names are stipulated on our booking form are entitled to stay overnight at the property. Guests are also respectfully required to keep noise to a minimum both around the property and also on the beach, so as not to cause unreasonable disturbance to their neighbours, especially in the evenings when no music is to be played that can be heard outside the bungalow after 11 pm. The hot-tub is also not to be used after 11pm.

We also politely remind our guests that Seahorse may not be used for any photographic or film location work, or as a venue for any function, wedding, party or event.


Area description

Bakoven is easily confused for Camps Bay itself as the two upmarket suburbs sit immediately side by side on the coast road as you make your way from Camps Bay out through Bakoven away from Cape Town.

But for residents and visitors alike, the smaller residential enclave of Bakoven offers a more intimate and relaxed feel but is still just 10 minutes walk from the more buzzy, glitzy vibe of the main beachfront strip in Camps Bay, with its many restaurants, bars and other attractions.

With its own small sandy beach and the popular Baked restaurant and bakery on your doorstep, Bakoven is an excellent base and has some stunning villas and apartments to choose from including stylishly renovated fishing cottages right on the water.
