REVIEW // Luxury stay at Harbour Edge Apartments

Everyone loves a little bit of luxury now and again, and in most cases, a lot more of the 'now' then the 'again', am I right guys? I'm right.

Whilst you may be thinking backpacking and luxury don't quite go hand in hand, you are (almost) entirely correct and it's all very upsetting because dorms filled with smelly males who snore really isn't something I'm a massive fan yet the budget requires that I get used to it. Damn money meaning I can't get what I want all the time, it's all very selfish really isn't it.


Always. Chatting. Irrelevant. Drivel.


What I was going to say before being distracted by complaining (shock) about male humans (shock x2) is that despite currently backpacking in South Africa, and living the dorm life to the full, it can all get a little much at times so when a possibility arose that we could perhaps escape for a couple of days, we rid ourselves of our backpacks and oh boy, we escaped.

To this absolute palace of a hotel room.

*Let's pause and take a moment to appreciate a room of furniture because of course, people don't have lives to lead or anything*

Did you pause? Totally bet you didn't pause.

Harbouredge Apartments is a luxury 4 star hotel, offering stunning rooms with views over Cape Town's skyline. Situated minutes away from the V&A Waterfront and the city centre, the apartments are in an ideal location to explore the city, grab a bite to eat or relax with friends for drinks, with safe walking routes and parking facilities available.

The apartments rooms themselves, are gorgeous and we really did feel like the ultimate queens whilst staying there (move over, Lizzy). Equipped with fantastic kitchen facilities, which lead to an open plan living room and dining area, a huge balcony which can be lit at night as well as two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it really the ultimate luxury place to be based at whilst staying in Cape Town.

Aside from all that though, the most important thing that absolutely must be spoken about because it really was just the most thrilling thing to feast my eyes on as we excitedly ran about the place 'oohing' and 'aahing' is the fact that the apartment actual real life BATHTUB.

What a time to be alive.

Our stay at Harbouredge Apartments was practically perfect. Aside from a very eager cleaner who popped in pretty early in the morning (and no that's not me being a typical lazy twenty something, it was before 9am!), it really was great and whilst sitting back with a glass of wine on the balcony one evening, I thought to myself:

Life really doesn't get much better than this.
