Vast, clean and perfectly equipped apartment. Ideally located at 5min walk from main attractions in Waterfront, safe. A bit more expensive that what we found in other location in SAR, but hey, that's Capetown...

The apartments are modern and central and within walking distance to anamazing array of shops and restaurants. Felt very secure there. I would certainly recommend these apartments. Even though a bit pricey, well worth it

The location is great and a very short walk to the V&A Waterfront. The apartment was very nice with a lot of upgrades and a great view of the marina. We would definitely stay here again. The facility is very secure.

Excellent location (5-10 min walk distance to the V&A waterfront), secured space, well equipped apartments, excellent cleaning service. The only shortage was absence of microwave oven. The rest was really excellent.

This is a spacious place to stay, good for families. Good location. We travelled here with two children, 4 and 5 1/2 years old and had therefore a two-room apartment. The apartment also included two bathrooms, and a big combined living room and kitchen. The kitchen is basically equipment, but had enough for making dinner. We did use the washing... More

I have stayed many times in waterfront apartments,but this time was very disappointing,the check in very casual no explanation on utilities,beds hard pillows like recycled tyres,situated behind buildings so restricted views of marina,for the price of R7600 for three days ,a rip off.che ck agency before booking especially if a long term stay.sad reflection for overseas guests.
