Location is unbeatable, being so close to the waterfront was fantastic, the apartment was well appointed with more than enough space for the six of us and we very much felt at home during our time there.

Stayed here at the end of a family holiday around South Africa. It's a really good location in a vibrant and totally safe part of Cape Town. Loads of restaurants, bars and shops at your doorstep as well as being close to the upmarket hotels the OneAndOnly (you must eat at Nobu) and also the Cape Grace. The apartment was... More

After a 35 hour trip from NZ we were welcomed to this stunning location near the V&A Waterfront. The apartment had great views and was very well appointed. The person who greeted made sure we had everything we needed and assisted us in managing the equipment at the apartment. It would have been helpful to have had a written information... More

We arrived at 1AM after 24 hours of travel and were met by a representative from African Elite to show us the apartment. The stunning ferris wheel glowed in the dark night like a symbol of a fabulous vacation to come. And it did come. Walking the waterfront area was easy and safe. Guards at the front gate were helpful,... More

Stayed twice recently with AEP at their Waterfront apartments. The first stay was a 1 bedroom apt in the Juliette block......lovely situation with great views from both the lounge/balcony and bedroom to Table Mountain. The block was very convenient/quick to access the Waterfront facilities via the Aquarium....about a 10 minute walk. Apt. newly refurbished and well appointed.....only criticism was only... More

We stayed in one of the V&A Waterfront apartments. The very spacious apartment was lovely with views of Table Mountain or the Marina from each of its 4 bedrooms. Great location with plenty of restaurants well within walking distance. Jody, from Elite was very helpful and accommodating.

Getting exact information about which apartment we were staying in and exactly how to get access was initially very difficult. None of this information was made available when the booking was initially made. However when we finally got the information, the apartment was everything that we had hoped for. 204 pembroke is a 2 bedroom apartment directly overlooking the marina... More

Once they have your money you will struggle. The properties are lovely. At the end of your stay you will receive an "extreme cleaning" letter where they will try and keep your deposit, in spite of using their own cleaners. When you call them they say "The computer produces these automatically." There are plenty of other agents in Cape Town.... More

The waterfront apartments are a great home base for out of towners. You are in one of the more secure areas of Cape Town. The Waterfront is only a 5 minute walk, and the walk is safe at all times of day. There are a number of good restaurants in the Waterfront though these options are on the pricier side... More
