Enjoyed the Waterfront Appartment
The apartment was very nice and in a good position for exploring the area. We have been in the Western Cape for many holidays and mainly use apartments / cottages. We had trouble with the air conditioning and although somebody did come and have a look at it we found the apartment very warm. We only had maid service once during our stay. We really did not use any facilities as we ate out all the time. However, would recommend as a central base.

Perfect apartment at the V&A
Luxury apartment, excellent location, quiet and peaceful on the canal, 10 minute stroll to the bars and restaurants at the V&A. Nice pool area, uses reclaimed sea-water, so open despite drought. House-keeping, security, agent all friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

A stylish, peaceful and tranquil canal-facing flat
We have stayed at this property for the last 3 years and have never been disappointed. The large,1 bedroom, apartment overlooks the canal providing the generous balcony with an air of peace and quiet belying it’s close proximity to the bustling V&A Waterfront. The kitchen has everything you need to self-cater but you also have all the bars and restaurants of the Waterfront a short step away. It is also only a short walk to the new Silo district as well as a gentle stroll through CT to Company Gardens. We are looking forward to going back again.

Beautiful Apartment in a Fantastic Location
This is the second time we have stayed here and it was a delight to come back. It is a stunning one bedroom apartment, spaceous and has everything you need, it is home from home. It is located within a few minutes walk of the V&A, which makes it the perfect location and the security is excellent. Sri was very helpful before our arrival and provided us with all the information that we needed. The area is lovely and quiet and it has a large balcony looking out onto the canal where you can have breakfast and lunch. We can't wait to go back!

Security and location excellent
Excellent location and security. Very good underground parking. Peaceful and relaxing ample apartment. Comfortable bed, ample cupboards in bedroom with safe. The balcony is big where to enjoy a nice breakfast, or lunch having a look at the canal. The kitchen has all the electrical appliances needed. Unfortunately there are details that need to be take into account ( there is not a normal salad bowl, only two ceramic trays for the oven, no usable tray in the oven, no fruitsalad bowls, no soup ladle, no plastic cover for food in the microwave, no napkins).A list of the apartment contents as well as appliances manuals were not provided on arrival, the folder was given later by the person in charge of the cleaning od the apartment. Due to these deatils I cannot give a 5 stars, a real pity, because everything is perfect otherwise.

Perfect Cape Town 'home from home'
This was the second time we have rented here and when we opened the door after our long flight it was as if we had come home! It is a delight to stay here, perfectly located just a few minutes pleasurable walk to the Waterfront shops, restaurants and activities yet serene and peaceful. The only sounds are the sea birds and the occasional splash of a paddle boarder falling into the canal! The apartment is very spacious, comfortable and bright and airy with full width doors across the lounge opening onto the terrace as well as patio doors from the bedroom into the terrace. Excellent harbour facing gym and pool opposite (one reasonable charge for duration) as well as several other good and free pools. We have already booked to return next year!

Wonderful
There are not enough adjectives to describe how wonderful our stay was in this unit. We stayed in Cape Town at this unit for a week. The service from Sri and Abigail was nothing less than superb. We were met at the gate by Abigail who showed us in, gave us the keys and even helped with the bags. The unit is beautiful and in an excellent location at the v&a waterfront. Security is fantastic. Very convenient to all highways. We had everything we needed and could even walk to the V &A waterfront. We will definitely book with Sri again when we come back to South Africa. Highly recommend this unit.

Delightful home from
Beautiful, bright and comfortable appartment in a superb location. Very peaceful and calm but only 5 minutes walk from the hassle and bustle of the Waterfront with its excellent shopping and restaurants. Excellent facilities both in the appartment and the complex. Very smooth and straightforward check-in. We've loved it so much we've already booked to return next year and we've not yet checked out!

AMAZING
If you are looking for a serene place to stay as a couple in Cape Town this is it, with all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel this apartment is the best place to stay and for around 70$ per night its simply the best. Private access to the V & A Waterfront and beautiful lights all around at night. Directly facing the V & A and the One & Only hotel. Everything you need is within walking distance. You will love it.

About the neighbourhood
The V&A Waterfront is cited as South Africa's most visited destination. It has excellent shopping, many top restaurants, many of Cape town's top tourist destinations including day tours to Robben Island, the Two Oceans Aquarium, easy access to local nightspots and much, much more. The Waterfront area has hundreds of shops including both local craft market and wellness center to one of South Africa's largest malls with larger department stores selling designer labels to boutique jewelry and curio shops and and Art Nouveau or Nu Metro cinemas. Mall includes groceries at Pick n Pay or Woolworth's so you can take advantage of the apartment's self-catering or relax in one of the many excellent restaurants. The Waterfront is the centre of many of Cape Town's top activities for the entire family. Two Ocean's Aquarium has more than 3000 marine creatures on view – including sharks, turtles and penguins – and is one of the finest aquariums in the world. With young kids even for a two-week visit we took advantage of a year pass and the kids wanted to go back again and again. For a fee you can even dive into the shark tank! If a visit to Robben Island is on your list, the Nelson Mandela Gateway is right here. Make sure you book your ticket to Robben Island in advance during the busy seasons. The Gateway itself has an excellent display showing the history Robben Island. The waterfront itself has a wide range of activities. From here you can get helicopter rides, boat charters and relaxed harbor cruises. The Amphitheatre is a good spot for life entertainment including concerts, creative workshops and puppet shows. The large wheel gives you a nice view of the surrounding area. The little kids may enjoy a visit to the Scratch Patch to fill up a bag of polished gemstones and older kids may enjoy the brand new Sprinbok experience Rugby museum.
