It’s official. We found the best Airbnb on earth. Located in the upscale Cape Town neighborhood of Clifton, this spacious beachfront studio was perfectly located for exploring the city and surrounding areas, but more importantly, the views were absolutely mind-melting. The building has direct frontage on the beach, and the rear of the apartment has wall-to-wall/floor-to-ceiling glass panes overlooking the ocean. There’s nothing better than falling asleep to the sounds of the waves crashing outside the window and waking up to a panoramic ocean view from the comfort of bed. The sunset wasn’t too shabby either….
The rest of the apartment’s interior is an afterthought in comparison to the view, but it’s actually extremely nice. Despite being a studio, it is quite spacious, and every space in the apartment has a view of the ocean. So you can relax in the kitchen, living “room”, the bathtub, shower, or bed and the incredible view is always in plain sight.
For Cape Town, this is definitely a more expensive option for an Airbnb or hotel, but the nightly rate at this place is comparable to what you might pay at a Holiday Inn in a major US city. If you look at it that way, it doesn’t feel like splurging, even though it’s well worth splurging for.
It might be a long time before we find another Airbnb that tops this place.
