Cape Town, Africa away from Africa. We've visited Cape Town twice now and both trips have been nothing but pure relaxation. This place is close to our hearts and it feels like another world and certainly not in Africa. The V&A shopping more has everything one needs and the people are amazing. The Apartments are stunning and we felt close... More

We were upgraded to a three bed roomed apartment which was facing the marina. We had a decking area where we could have a drink sunbathe or relax. There were three yachts outside and we were visited by seals daily. The apartments were luxury ,comfortable with all comforts of home. The location of the apartments were a stone throw away... More

We arrived late in the evening after a very long flight. The waterfront village is very safe and has on site security. They made the checking in process as quick as possible and showed us to our apartment in Helensee. Clean and extremely comfortable. Champagne, chocolates, flowers and a personal note wishing us a happy honeymoon was a lovely touch.... More

Comfortable spacious rooms. Close to shops and restaurants. Good service by staff. Issues with power - kept cutting out when trying to use dryer. Free wifi in reception otherwise had to pay for it in our room. Would recommend for families.

Great start to our garden route tour. Excellent location and clean facilities. Easily accessible for food, shopping, entertainment. We took a sunset cruise which was also great fun. Family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Highly recommend.

Great family accommodation in a safe and beautiful spot in Cape Town. Great views and facilities. The flat was very comfortably furnished and was very secure with underground parking. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return when visiting Cape Town again.

We stayed on the 5th floor of Kylemore A ... brilliant! The whole place is itself very secure, and is in a safe part of the city - walking distance to lots of attractions and the sighseeing bus. Very friendly staff. Clean and well furnished apartment, with all key facilities. Lovely views of the sunrise over the harbour!

We stayed in a Superior 2 bedroom apartment Parergon 201 that had a wonderful view of the V&A and the Yachts in the Marina. The apartment was very... More

We had a spacious 2 bed apartment in 'Ellesmere' building - just right for a couple & single friend. Lovely view & a very short walk round the marina to the extensive amenities of the waterfront. A longer walk takes you to the centre of the city. The area is friendly & laid back - couldn't be better. Staff so... More

This was a very nice alternative to one of the big hotels at the waterfront, 5 minute walk from the aquarium/sightseeing bus and another 5 mins to the main hub of the waterfront. The waterfront was a great place to stay and felt very safe all day and night The staff were very helpful, I particular Vernon, who checked us... More
