Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Private and secret location behind the "mysterious" wall in Camps Bay. A shipping container has been converted into a studio overlooking the forest. A magical place hidden away from the average Camps Bay. For the adventurous traveler! Beautifull nature paths to explore with hidden gems. Proceeds of the Pods go to the upkeep of the magnificent gardens and nursery.

It was very cozy, very close to the beach, and it had mostly everything you might need. I would definitely stay there again.

The forest pod was a perfect spot for my wife and I. The location was spectacular, very close to the beach and to the city. We loved our stay and would highly recommend staying here.

Great location and cool set up. It's a converted shipping container so if you stay anytime near winter, be prepared for it to be cold.
