We stayed at number 110 Waterkant (there are several properties that make up the cottages). This was a lovely place with 3 large bedrooms, two bathrooms (no baths) and all the cooking facilities. There is room for individual privacy if required. From the two spacious roof areas you can see out to the waterfront and Table Mountain towered in the... More

We had a four night stay at 29 Jarvis street. I can highly recommend this accommodation. The location is ideal, a modern, well appointed cottage in a area steeped in history. Narrow, cobblestone roads lead to this gem in central Cape Town. I can hardly imagine a more convenient location!

Came down for honeymoon during August and never regret my decision on choosing my accommodation. We stayed at 23 Loader for 8 nights and I have nothing negative to say about anything. We fully enjoyed our stay, the cottage is well equipped and doesn't lack anything. Location is excellent and so is the view! Getting around is not a problem... More

Our little family of three stayed at 4 Bayview for four nights last month after (originally booking 2 Bayview) and had a great experience there. (Considering that there are three bedrooms, it was a bit more than we needed, but we enjoyed the spaciousness.) The overall impression of service is one of reserved professionalism, which is a common theme in... More

For many years, I have stayed at various properties managed by De Waterkant Cottages, and have never had a bad experience. The office staff are friendly and helpful, and the daily cleaning staff are likewise professional and unobtrusive. I recently stayed at 110 Waterkant, a large 3-bedroom house with two bathrooms. The property is largely as described on their website,... More

We stayed 4 nights at 29 Jarvis which ended up being the perfect place for my husband and I. 29 Jarvis has a great patio with a mini pool, two large rooms, 2 baths, kitchen, washer/dryer and living room. The space was beyond what we needed but the place was gorgeous and so comforting after a long day of hiking... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Waterkant Cottages. Very conveniently located in the city: walking distance to V&A Waterfront (not more than 15 min) and easy drive to Table Mountain and beyond (Hout Bay, Cape Point, Simonstown, Boulders etc). The cottage was very well equipped: full kitchen supplies, washing machine, dryer, ironing board, etc. No dish washer though, but don't... More

We stayed there with our 1 1/2 year old while I ran the Two Oceans Marathon. The location is in a fantastic quaint neighborhood with small restaurants, grocery stores and an ice park. The accomodations were luxurious --- we especially liked that we had not only a rooftop deck but a small outdoor patio with grill. We easily found street... More

We stayed at 4 Bayview Terrace where one gets 360 degree views of the V&A Waterfront, the harbour, CBD, table mountain and Signal hill above you off their rooftop deck. From your bedrooms you can either look onto the harbour or table mountain! What a choice!!! The accommodation itself is very comfortable and clean. The beds and linen are awesome.... More
