About the neighbourhood
The Gardens/Oranjezicht area where the apartment is located is within close proximity of both the mountain and the city centre. Despite its proximity to the hustle and bustle of city life, the neighbourhood is quiet at night and a peaceful sleep can be had.
Getting around
Taxis are available from right outside the centre's doors, though the building is within walking distance of Cape Town's many museums, Company Gardens, the famous Kloof and Long Streets, etc. Uber is also a very convenient option. The MyCiti rapid bus network provides easy, affordable transport to the V&A; Waterfront, Cape Town train station, Cape Town Intl Airport, Camp's Bay, Hout Bay, Sea Point, etc. from the Gardens station, located right opposite the building.
