Cape Town Central, Western Cape
This designer apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the fabulous large balcony that transforms the living space.

Facing north, this private apartment on the 2nd floor of The Rockwell is protected from the Cape Town winds and is lovely and sunny in winter, yet cool and eternally liveable in the summer. With a Balinese divan and a dining table outside, this apartment is all about making the most of Cape Town and the outdoors.

The air-conditioned interior was designed by a renowned interior designer with a retro feel. It complements the Rockwell’s 1900s New York inspired architecture. The retro design makes full use of the interior space and flows easily into the protected balcony area. There are views across the De Waterkant area to the harbour and Cape Town Stadium.

There is a full kitchen and a washer and dr...

Interaction with guests
As I'm not always in Cape Town, I use a property management company to look after the apartment and check guests in. They are available 24hrs a day, and I'm always available via phone/email. If you need any tips of some things to do in Cape Town - please ask me. I love helping people discover how cool this city is.

Fantastic apartment with easy access to both Cape Town CBD and all tourist attractions. Apartment was extremely clean, tidy and well presented and location was amazing. Property owner was extremely helpful and provided us with some brilliant recommendations for eating out.

We could have not been any luckier to have found this cute as a button apartment in a prime location in Capetown. Jenny the owner was so responsive you did not even realized you were in a different part of the world in a different time zone. She replied to my numerous emails and provided us with tips of restaurants...

Upon booking I got a very warm welcome email with an attachment on Internet use/access, how the rental would work and a fabulous foodie and shopping recommendation list for our stay! The management team was very professional and prompt when they met my husband and I...

About the neighbourhood
De Waterkant is one of the trendiest and most exclusive neighbourhoods in Cape Town. The apartment enjoys an enviable location in the heart of the city without actually being in the CBD (which virtually closes down on weekends). From the apartment, you can easily walk to most major attractions of Cape Town. The CBD is just a couple of blocks, The V&A Waterfront (shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops and Robben Island) is only minutes away, and there's an excellent supermarket across the road.
The CTICC (Convention Centre) is nearby. You can easily walk to the new Cape Town Stadium and Cape Quarter’s lively restaurant and café scene is just one block away.

If you have a car, the apartment has an assigned, underground secure car parking space with lift access into the building....
Getting around
I usually use Uber
It's approx R7-11/km

Taxi Services
Taxis are relatively cheap in Cape Town. About R10/km. Best to call one, and have them pick you up at the Prestwich Street entrance.
I suggest InterCab, Excite Taxis or Rikkis
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Cape Town International: 21.0 km
Railway: Cape Town Train Station: 1.6 km
I'd suggest Uber, a taxi or a city shuttle service from the airport if you're not hiring a car.

Self-drive directions from the airport
Follow the N2 (direction Cape Town).
Keep following signs towards stadium, Waterfront and Sea Point.
Just after you pass the hospital, a big Virgin Active and the CTICC, get into the middle lane.
The road will become Buitengracht Street.
Stay on Buitengracht Street and go through the first 2 traffic lights.
At the third traffic light take a right onto Somerset Road
Then the second right turn onto Alfred Street.
The Rockwell is situated on the corner of Prestwich and Alfred Streets.
Activities nearby
Golf Course Is On Site Or Within 15 Mins Walk, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Nearest Beach: 8.0 km.
