I stayed at the Village & life Waterfront Apartment with my 2 children aged, 4 and 7 and my sister with her son of 8. What an amazing place for a family. We stayed in a Superior 2 bedroom apartment Parergon 201 that had a wonderful view of the V&A and the Yachts in the Marina. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious for a family with active small kids. It had luxury amenities and coffee and tea ready for us on our arrival. I like the fact that you can enter and exit in West Quay Road and walk to the Aquarium and other child friendly attractions and restaurants. The Parking was very close to the apartment and the check in staff was very friendly. I cannot think of a more suitable and great value place to stay for a family that is located in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

We had a spacious 2 bed apartment in 'Ellesmere' building - just right for a couple & single friend. Lovely view & a very short walk round the marina to the extensive amenities of the waterfront. A longer walk takes you to the centre of the city. The area is friendly & laid back - couldn't be better. Staff so efficient & helpful. Good value alternative to hotel.

This was a very nice alternative to one of the big hotels at the waterfront, 5 minute walk from the aquarium/sightseeing bus and another 5 mins to the main hub of the waterfront.

The waterfront was a great place to stay and felt very safe all day and night

The staff were very helpful, I particular Vernon, who checked us in with no fuss after a long trip, the process of getting to your room does take a while as you have to got the the security office and get photos. But the room was great very clean and tidy and with all the things you would need for an apartment. As it was our honeymoon we received a lovely bottle of fizzy and chocolates and a nice bunch of flowers.

All in a great spot which we would have no hesitation in booking next time in Cape Town

Waterfront Village Apartments is an excellent location for a longer stay in Cape Town. We stayed 5 nights in a three bedroom apartment. The location is perfect for easy access to the multitude of restaurants around the V&A Waterfront....all in walking distance. It's also only a 15 - 20 minute walk to central Cape Town if you are feeling adventurous. I highly recommend this property if you are looking for a slower pace after a safari trip (like we were).

Loved the place that we stayed in, the facilities, the cleanliness, the kitchen, the access to the areas close by, was just perfect to begin our South African holiday. The walk around the canal and seeing the birds, seals (yes we saw them), the canoes, boat races, and the boats made for a lovely view. The table mountains can be seen in the distance and we witnessed three gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from our balcony. Seeing the night view of the waterfront and city lights, and the lit up giant wheel was a great way to wind up the day.
