“Cape Town Flat Next Door to the Taj Hotel”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

The flat is beautifully appointed and well located, right in the middle of the city. The living room and master bedroom have huge windows and unbelievable views of Table Mountain. Tiago, the owner, met us upon our arrival, though it was late (after 2200). The building is secure, with security and keyed entry to the elevators, though we walked freely around the neighborhood all day long and never felt unsafe.

Everything was immaculate. The two bedrooms with ensuite were very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and has a sizable table with six stools. The basic amenities included towels, bathroom supplies, coffee and tea, dish and dishwasher detergent, and clothes-washing detergent-and we had access to some extras as well. The living room has a large sofa with lounger, providing comfort and a great spot to enjoy the views of the mountain and the "table cloth" of clouds that roll in. The wifi, the most important amenity for us, worked well. There are lots of electronic amenities, including Netflix and DSTV, though the wifi is the only thing we used. There is a huge workout facility just across the street and a pool upstairs in the building, to which you can have access as well (though our exercise was walking all around this beautiful city). The washing machine works great, and the clothes drying rack was fine.

There is a great vegetable and fruit market just across the street, Food Lover's Market, with a large salad and hot food bar. The neighborhood abounds with markets and restaurants. We walked all around the central city. The walk to Table Mountain is long and uphill, and the walk to the V and A Waterfront is a bit of a distance, so a taxi or Uber (the owner Tiago recommended Uber as economical and safe) is likely the way to go. The cable way ride to the top of Table Mountain is well worth the price.

Great bargain tip: The hop on/hop off all-day train pass on the Southern Line is only R35 per person. We went to the end, to Simon's Town, where we walked to The Boulders, about 45 minutes each way, to see the Penguin Colony. The train is a local, with many stops, and follows a breathtaking route right along the coast. A person we met on the train said that she doesn't usually see Americans riding the Southern Line.

The wonderful apartment has safety as first priority!! Guard at door: followed by key to leave elevator foyer on the floor and key to enter room!!

The bed was most wonderful with luxury linens. So quiet above a famous Long Street my daughter slept well into the morning. Long Street has marvelous restaurants.

This was more than outstanding

“Excellent location, garage, great view, well equipped, helpful landlord”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

In Long Street, the very center of Cape Town, with a great view on Table Mountain and Lion's Head. Literally right above one of the stops of the Hop-on Hop-Off busses.
A supermarket with foodcourt just two blocks away.
At walking distance from the Waterfront and all of the sites worth seeing in the center.
Well equipped appartment with 2 bedrooms and a nice terrace. Excellent WIFI.
The landlord can facilitate transportation from the Airport to the appartment.
Cars can be rented in the city center and returned to the airport without extra cost.
The landlord provided a very convenient parking spot in the building some levels beneath the appartment.

“Exceeded our expectations in every way- close to all the sights, safe, beautifully appointed & breathtaking views.”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Wonderful stay from the moment Brad so kindly collected us from Cape Town Station. Apartment perfect for 2 adults & 2 kids,11 &14.11yr old slept on very comfy lounge with no complaints! Bedding provided @ no extra charge.Excellent red sight seeing bus & booking office just next door & Greenmarket Square practically at the door. Great bakeries & restuarants all along Long Street (apartment fronts onto Long St). Within very easy walking distance of Bo Kaap & Company Gardens. Views of Table Mountain / Lions' Head/ City bowl from the balcony are superb & perfect for watching the sunrise / sunset, & the "tablecloth" roll in over the mountain. Not to be missed!

“Exceeded our expectations!!”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our first (and not last) trip to South Africa and Cape Town was an amazing experience. We had 5 days with our 2 grown daughters for Cape Town and absolutely loved the location, the amenities Brad and Cheryl's apartment gave us! The view by itself is fantastic! We found the location a great jumping off spot to go anywhere. Loved Tiger's Milk across the street for an afternoon pint or wine and the food was great too! Most important is Brad and Cheryl. They are terrific hosts. Very helpful with getting checked in and finding the parking garage and greeting us with a little sparkling wine! nice. When leaving, we had a early flight and with the hustle and bustle of getting all 4 of us going, left behind a bit of money in a drawer! (oh no!) We were sooooo relieved after landing in Johannesburg to find Cheryl had found it!!! She and Brad went to a lot of trouble to get it changed and transferred to our US bank account, but they did and we thank them dearly for that! If you are in Cape Town, definitely stay here!
