Whale Watchers Apartment Muizenberg
Great apartment in the heart of Muizenberg. Clean, neat and secure. Whale Watchers office right opposite with very welcoming staff. Check in and check out was easy. They also organised my airport shuttle who was on time and friendly. Definitely recommend the apartments and will book again.
