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

The apartments leased by African Elite are located in a highly secure complex within walking distance to the One and Only Hotel and the Waterfront. Location and security are prime selling points, and the units with views are an extra bonus. While staff are accessible, communications were a bit of a problem. Staff were not clear as to where the... More

We spent three nights in a beautiful waterfront apartment overlooking the marina. The quality of the accommodation is excellent, it's very secure, with key card entry and ideally located to walk to the shops, museums and restaurants of the waterfront complex. So we would definitely recommend this accommodation. Our only problem was with the wifi service - it worked, but... More

We spent 4 days in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apt with a lovely view on the Marina with seals swimming just there. Kitchen equipment was amazing and we cooked dinner 2 nights and breakfast in the morning just for the fun of it. One night we had a problem with a room lights and we were kindly assisted by... More
