“Good location, secure building”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The apartment has everything you need for a stay in Cape Town, including secure parking (only toilet paper was missing). You can walk to the City and to the Waterfront and a large supermarket is nearby. There is a major road in front of the building, so it gets quite noisy when the balcony doors are left open at night.

“Great downtown location!”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016
person found this review helpful

Harbour Edge is about as central in downtown Cape Town as anyone would want. It's a 10- to 15-minute walk from the bustling Long Street (and the Hop On Hop Off bus office) to the east and about a 20-minute walk from the V&A Waterfront to the west. Bo Kapp is a 10-minute walk to the southeast.

This apartment complex is also just two streets south from the Cape Quarter shopping complex, which includes a good Spar grocery store and liquor outlet as well as a hardware store, at least three cafés a Vodacom kiosk and nice boutiques all under one roof. The Cubana Café is right beside the Cape Quarter; the Cubana provides a nice spot for a drink after a day exploring the downtown core.

Enrico rented us a small but tidy one-bedroom apartment on the third floor. While Enrico was unavailable to personally meet us, his very capable associate Vangelis arrived with a warm smile, a firm handshake - and the keys.

The kitchen featured granite counter tops and a cook-top with a stove, a good-sized fridge and an adequate number of pots and pans, flatware, glasses, coffee mugs and utensils for two people. A little bodrum did the job for our morning until we found a two-cup version at the Spar hardware store. The kitchen also included a small dining table with chairs and a modern washer-dryer but we found it was a bit too modern: we could have used a user's manual to run it properly, although some how we muddled through for a few loads

The queen-size bed was really comfortable - we slept like logs - and the bathroom was clean with a good shower that dispensed lots of hot water.

The apartment also had a small balcony looking north, although the view was of the infamous Cape Town "bridge to nowhere" and four lanes of at times very loud traffic. Once the sliding doors were closed though, you could barely hear the vehicles, which helped a lot for watching satellite TV at low volume - and sleeping! The wifi connection was great, too.

We were too busy to check out the pool on the first floor, which was a pity because the water looked nice and refreshing!

There are at least two rental car agencies within a 10-minute walk. We took advantage of this proximity because we needed a car for the rest of our stay in the Cape Town area, so it was an added bonus to have a parking spot in the Harbouredge basement.

All in all, Enrico's place was exactly what we were looking for: a nice self-catering base for our first week in Cape Town.
