So, yesterday I went to view 4 different (or not so different) apartments. No real luck in finding a place to stay though. The first 3 ones were nice and all but way too small. The 4th one was nice size-wise but the building was too prison like and old. All 4 close to the beach but that didn’t really make a difference.
Going to check another apartment out today at Kings Court. Looks kind of small in the photos but the price is good and it’s close to shops and stuff so I can walk around the area… but no pets allowed…
The first 3 apartments I viewed yesterday were all at Amadada Leisure Village – a very nice eco-friendly place that makes you feel like you are in a completely different place, like out in the middle of the bushes somewhere in a resort like place. Very strange. You forget that the beach is just down the road.
Pool area outside
Little cove type deal
Waterfall by the pool
Entrance to Amadada Leisure Village
Here is the first apartment I viewed:
Really pretty en-suite bathroom..but I’m not loving that it is IN the bedroom… No privacy at all – Freaky! Why is this a trend??
Nice mirrored closet
The view… Not cool that they are still building outside, don’t wanna deal with all the noise.
The bathroom again
Second bathroom with shower.
Second bedroom with a horrible green wall.
So not only is the whole bathroom inside the bedroom a trend but apparently it’s also cool nowadays to combine the kitchen and the living room… So not cool.
Here is the second apartment I viewed – pretty much the same deal as the first one but with nicer ceilings.
Same mirrored closet as the first apartment.
No balcony here.
Second bedroom – nicer color than the first apartment.
The view from the master bedroom.
Main bedroom wall
Again with the en-suite inside the bedroom..
Nicer ceilings with beams.
The third apartment was the same deal – not a lot of space there neither.
Nice little braai area on the balcony. And – it has a balcony.
Watch your tv and your fridge at the same time…
Bathroom with a tiny tub.
Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom without a door.
After viewing the Amadada ones I took a stroll down to the beachfront and bought myself an ice cream and then had a cup of coffee at the Humewood hotel. A half dodgy hotel but it was nice to just chill in the sun before my next viewing that was just down the road.
Freezing winds so I’m hiding in my scarf ;)
The last place I looked at was in The Beaches in Humewood. Old looking building with heavy security.
Old style haha
Kitchen – The nice thing about this apartment!
A nice prison feel to it don’t you think?
