We travelled to Cape Town for 4 night stays on March 11 and we choose Kloof Nek because of the room with the view of Table Mountain. We expected this otw to the apartment. What we did not expected is the hospitality and the extra mileage that the owner provided to the 3 of us when we arrived there. I... More

As advertised, this is definitely a luxury apartment. Our apartment was huge and with every amenity we could have wanted. We really appreciated having the washer *and* dryer as well! The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. They let us store our luggage when we arrived too early for check in and also woke up at 5am to let us... More

The apartment is beautiful, it's air conditioned, has a pool, good lazing around facilities including a barbecue/braai. It's well appointed and serviced. The owners are attentive, friendly and very helpful. The staff are really good, and they blend in, so they're not in the way if you spend the day at the apartment. It's really handy for the city and... More

We spent two weeks at 129 on Kloof Nek Road in Higgovale Cape Town over December and it was tremendous. Accomodation, furnishing, pool, cleanliness and great design all come to mind and to top it off, it is located superbly against the upper slopes of table mountain, great restaurants nearby with the city just down the road and within striking...

When I first set eyes on this apartment I had a vague idea I was in for a lovely stay, but when I got to the apartment I was blown away by the attention to detail and immaculate attention given to just about everything. The location is central and really close to table mountain, camps bay, signal hill and Cape... More

We spent two nights here for my daughters 20th Birthday. I travel extensively on business in South Africa and every now and again am stunned by an excellent place and this is one of them. The apartments are literally down the hill from the Cable Car station for Table Mountain. The quality of the apartments is to a standard I... More

We made a last minute booking at 129 on Kloof Nek. The owners are very friendly and helpful with everything you want. From the lvingroom and balcony you have a super view towards Table mountain. You can easily walk towards Kloofstreet and downtown. Take a taxi when you go back, quite steep to go back. The apartment is coming with... More

After searching fruitlessly for a solid hotel option in Cape Town, we came across 129 on Kloof Nek. It proved to be a perfect alternative! We rented the three-bedroom villa, which offered sweeping views of the city, a fantastic private hot tub, shared use of the pool. The home is very well appointed, with modern amenities. The hosts could not... More

There are only 3 apartments to pick from. We had the 3 bedroom apartment. Straight away we could tell that is was a real 5 star property. Very clean! fantastic location. Awesome design and high quality furniture from the front door to the kitchen sink. Our host, Arndt, was so nice and made our stay magical. When we arrived, the... More
