We decided on this area based on a friend's recommendation, not knowing much about Cape Town ourselves. While it is a lovely area and a very nice apartment, and only about 20-30 minutes away, we regretted not staying closer to the inner city areas. We definitely needed a car to get around.
The apartment is nice, as described. It is on the 6th floor. There are doormen to monitor who enters the gated building. The apartment was clean and certainly spacious enough for the three of us, with the upstairs bedroom and bathroom giving us (my husband and me - and our young adult daughter) privacy. The initial communication with the owner was a bit slow, but then it improved. Accessing the key to the apartment took a little effort but it, too, worked out fine. There are shops and restaurants in walking distance which we enjoyed. Cape Town is an amazingly beautiful city and we really enjoyed our visit there.
