The main apartment offers high ceilings and a great feeling of space with all the comforts of home, lovely bathrooms and huge living area. The loft is really quirky, views of the sea and light from both sides, with the bonus of an outside deck to enjoy... More

Loft with quirky layout that makes the best of the views over Capetown bay,from your living & dining room and from your bed. Lovely space, decorated with flair and all to a high standard. Thoughtful welcome with coffee machine (real beans) at the ready, basics in the fridge and a lovely piece of bread. :)

It was the last step on our long tour in South Africa and definitely one of the best places we ever booked. Spacious, comfortable, sunny, clean, well equipped... not much more we could have asked for and we will come back

We rented out both apartments for our family and were very impressed with both. There was plenty of space and they were very well equipped. Fantastic location within easy walking distance to the waterfront. We were amazed at how reasonable the rent was for such lovely accommodation.

This house is amazing. It has even more oceanside charm than the pictures show, and the views of Cape Town are beautiful from the bay window. It's also in a great location for walking to restaurants in Green Point and Sea Point. We couldn't have been happier with our visit, and we'd love to stay at Braeside when we travel... More

Myself , my wife and two children stayed at Braeside House for three nights. It is very conviniently situated near the Cape Town stadium and Waterfront. As we went to see the Justin Bieber concert we were able to take a very pleasant walk to and from the stadium. The accomodation was very good with great views of Sea Point... More

Big, nice and clean rooms near the city center. Marvelous Breakfast with large selection of Fruits, Cheese, Breads and succulent omelettes made by Catherine and Mike. Real good hospitality with a home away from home feeling and great value. We will be back!

We were recommended to stay in self-catering accommodation and were delighted with our 3 night stay at Braeside House in the Loft apartment. It was the perfect start to our holiday in Africa for 3 kiwis wanting to share. While my partner & I shared the bedroom, our friend was very comfortable on the bed in the lounge area, as... More

Centrally located in Green Point Village on the North facing slope of Signal Hill and close to the centre of Cape Town, Braeside House has two comfortable, recently renovated self-catering apartments ideally located for leisure or business.Whilst very different in size and style, the fully furnished and equipped luxury apartments can each sleep up to 4 guests with a flexible configuration. With a common entrance lobby, they can also be easily combined to accommodate parties of up to 8 guests. Situated on the first and second floors, we are well secured for your peace of mind.The apartments have panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Robben Island, the Cape Town Stadium and Green Point Common. With full sun throughout the day at the front and a partly shaded balcony/courtyard facing Signal Hill – a National Park, both apartments have facilities for eating either in the dining area or ‘al fresco.’The location is an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions of Cape Town and its surrounds. With all modern conveniences incorporated in a traditional Victorian house, your stay will be one of easy comfort and enjoyment. Self-catering accommodation with this much charm and style is rare. ... more   less
