We stayed at one of the apartments offered by De Waterkant Village for nearly one week. We were greeted with a beautifully furnished 2 bedroom apartment with amazing views of Cape Town. We quite literally felt we had won the lottery! The apartments were close to the waterfront and lots of restaurants and cafes. Most importantly as we were two... More

This is the place to stay when you in Cape town. This aria has the best restaurants and accommodation in the aria. The evenings is great here. Lots of small places to have something to eat and even just to spend time outside the pub having a drink and chatting to friends on the pavement. The vibe here in the... More

We weren't sure what to expect as we knew all the rooms were different and it isn't very clear on the website what you're going to get. Staff at reception were nice and friendly. We were shown to an apartment a block away from reception, and found the house immediately charming. We had been worried about parking, and had planned... More

My wife and I staid at this "hotel" for 5 days in mid May 2015. It all went bad from the start. The cab left us at the reception, but our apartment was one block away and we had to walk with our bags and in the rain. Once settled, we found out that there was no internet service even... More

Stayed for 4 nights at the end of an African safari trip and loved it. Located in one of the best areas of Cape Town. Nice change from traditional hotels as you stay in townhouses or apartments, so very good for entertaining, etc. Staff at reception are awesome and helpful with everything. Wifi in apartments (rather than just reception) would... More

The room we stayed in for the Cape Town Cycle tour was disasterously tiny! Had to sit on the floor to put make up on as there is a bar fridge under vthe anity. No window in the bathroom, only a door that opens right above the entrance gate to the property so the building contractors working on the road... More

Stayed 6 days in De Waterkant with my grown family of 4. This is a great location, very convenient for most attractions and roads. There are numerous beautiful shops, boutiques, cafe's restaurants etc. This area, with its colourful, interesting architecture and steep, narrow streets has a very special feel. Parking is however very challenging so if you have a car,... More

We really enjoyed our time there! The staff is amazing, its in the middle of the gay village, its safe to walk around (even in the evenings)! The rooms were big, clean and charming. We stayed in room number 7, and i will go back there on every visit to Cape Town!

This and De Waterkant House are a collection of houses around a nice neighbourhood where there are lots of bars, restaurants and funky shops. Rooms are fine, nothing too special but a comfortable bed, tidy bathroom and tv/dstv. Breakfast wasn't the best, but the view from the terrace is beautiful. Convenient to walk down to the V&A, or around the... More
