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

We stayed in 75 Loader street as 2 couples and couldn'tve been more impressed. We booked online well in advance and from the start, professionalism and ease was the order of the day. A friendly warm welcome on the day of arrival. The cottage was perfect! It was spacious, light, airy, clean, safe, comfortable and well-appointed, furnished with a gorgeous... More

This unit is managed by De Waterkant Cottages: http://www.yourcapetown.co.za/accommodation/cape-town/2-bayview-terrace.html We stayed in this beautiful, three-bedroom home for 10 nights with two other couples and loved it. We'd return in a heartbeat. Great location with clean design overlooking the harbor on one side with Table Mountain views on the other. (Keep in mind it is on the hillside so there's a... More

6 of us stayed here for a wonderful week in Cape Town in September 2013. The accommodation was clean and well presented. Beautiful large bedrooms and excellent communal areas. Only a 10 minute walk to the Waterfront and in a nice little area with cafes, bars, a small shopping mall and a convenience store. Great base for exploring.

Stayed at 23 Loader Street for four nights, & would definitely stay there again. It was the perfect little house for a couple, with a well-equipped kitchen, a stylishly furnished dining room/living room, a small washer/dryer, satellite TV & a very nice, comfortable bedroom. (Note that this is a one-bedroom house meant for two adults, not a family.) The rooftop... More
