  • "Perfect location for a no-fuss getaway"

    13 August 2017

    "We stayed in the upstairs house for four beautiful nights. We didn't imagine the house would be so well equipped, with a dishwasher, gas stove. DSTV, fireplace and a great range of cooking equipment, cutlery and crockery. There's a suprette and a deli in walking distance, and many restaurants nearby. The beach is on your doorstep, offering beautiful walks. The owner, Shona, is great, and the tenants downstairs were friendly and kind. No matter the weather, this is a place where you can relax and enjoy yourself, without a worry in the world. Highly recommended!"

  • "Arum Place"

    01 November 2010

    "Arum Place is a very comfortable, well equipped apartment and indeed very close to the sea. We were, however, very disappointed by the fact that there is no sea view as advertised. A hedge has obviously covered the one view and the view from the living room is obstructed by a plastic film stuck on the windows that is bubbled and peeling. All the windows in the apartment were also extremely dirty."

    "They say a photograph speaks a 1000 words and this is true of Arum place. Its pretty and if one stands on the verandha one can see the sea. We cannot add more than that as in typical Cape weather it poured the whole week-end. If it wasn't for the DSTV package it could've been an awful experience. Fully equipped and great for access to the Lighthouse in Kommetjie and walks around Misty Cliffs"

  • "Really enjoyable"

    25 March 2008

    "Very comfortable stay in small but well-equipped apartment close to the beach. David was very welcoming and we really enjoyed ourselves. Long Beach (3 mins drive or 10 mins walk) is really stunning and not as crowded as you would expect on a hot day."

    "Plek: Arum Place bied goeie waarde vir geld en is uitstekend toegerus.Om te doen: Ek dink dis ideaal vir ontspan by die see; alle Kaapstad-vermaak en aktiwiteite is maklik bereikbaar. Dis veral ideaal as mens vir 'n hele paar dae oorbly.Ontvangs: Baie vriendelike ontvangs deur Dave Swanson. Hy doen moeite om mens welkom en tuis te laat voel."
