Set against the backdrop of the Twelve Apostles and overlooking the glittering Atlantic Ocean, Camps Bay is not only one of the most breathtaking suburbs in the world, it is also home to some of the most incredible luxury properties.
Camps Bay is world-renowned for its pristine, powder-white beaches, spectacular mountain backdrop, and cosmopolitan lifestyle and is an extremely popular holiday destination for international travelers.
While the area is popular with tourists, it is still an ideal suburb for family living - offering a vibrant, coastal lifestyle with a host of amenities and attractions. While the city centre, V&A Waterfront, and other shopping hubs are nearby, Camps Bay itself offers plenty in the way of entertainment – from the bustling beach strip with its upmarket restaurants and nightspots to the myriad of outdoor activities that range from hiking to surfing.
For high-end family buyers, the proximity to the City and some of the best schools in Cape Town is a huge drawcard. The area is home to St. Cyprian’s and The German International School for example.
Camps Bay beach proudly boasts Blue Flag status, adding to the appeal of the beach lifestyle you can find here. Fans of the international hit, ‘Black Mirror’ will also recognize this as the fictional setting of the perfect town, San Junipero, in the episode of the same name in season 3.
Camps Bay’s appealing synergy of opulent glamour, relaxed beach lifestyle and traditional family values along with its variety of property options continue to underpin the market in this scenic oceanside enclave.
The mountainside is adorned with expansive luxury homes, while trendy apartments are within easy walking distance of the beachfront.
The property mix leans toward freehold properties with some sectional titles and due to limited opportunities for further development, property in Camps Bay will remain a very attractive investment for high net worth buyers. Camps Bay remains sought-after as it offers investors a wide choice in properties with its 60/40 mix of freehold and sectional title homes in an exclusive setting, a unique lifestyle and long-term investment value.
Another attractive feature of Camps Bay homes is the fact that in comparison to its immediate neighbours, most homes are set on sizeable stands - ensuring not only comfort but privacy.
Living in the much sought-after suburb has become something of a practice for many tourists, who return again and again to soak up the sun. Homes up in the reaches of Lion’s Head offer fantastic views over the Atlantic and the bay is relatively calm during the summer months that is somewhat protected from the wind.
Foreign buyers are also quite active in the area, looking for a trophy home or holiday home. For the buyer looking for an investment property, Camps Bay has a lot to offer.
So whether you are looking to settle down in one of the most exclusive suburbs in the country or looking to invest, Camps Bay has it all.
