“Awesome apartment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

Stayed at Pembroke with my wife and 9 yr old daughter for 5 nights. The apartment is beautifully furnished, very spacious, has great views of both table mountain and the waterfront, and is in a great location - what more could you ask for?

For anyone concerned about security in this part of Cape Town, first of all; Don't be! It's a very nice area and we felt very safe walking the 5 mins from the bars and restaurants of the waterfront back to the apartment; Secondly, the apartment complex itself is super secure - it sits in a gated and guarded complex.

The owners were very helpful in helping organise our holiday and the airport transfers. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment, and you can be sure of having a great time in this wonderful city!

Many thanks for this, Andy

I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay at Pembroke 403.

The location and the views are as good as there is anywhere in the world and we have tried to make the interiors a worthy match for this.

I'm very pleased about your comments on security as I think this is the biggest fear for first time visitors to the Cape. Cape Town is as safe as any city in the world while the Waterfront itself is particularly safe and a short, easy walk from Pembroke. As you say, the complex, of which Pembroke is a part, is totally secure.

Cape Town is a great city to visit and offers as much to do for both first time and returning visitors. No wonder the New York Times has named Cape Town as the Number 1 Place to Go 2014.

Have a great year ahead.

“Wonderful Experience - Truly a 5-star Accommodation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I traveled to Cape Town with another couple. We found Pembroke 403 via a search engine and are so thrilled we chose to stay here. The owners were very easy to communicate with during our booking and very helpful in suggesting places to visit and things to do. The location of the apartment is perfect - close enough to the V&A Waterfront but very quiet and peaceful with amazing views from all the windows - both the view of Table Mountain from the back and the Marina view from the front. The apartment is very well equipped and very well decorated - exactly as you see in the pictures. Very comfortable place to relax after seeing the town during the day. We will definitely be back!

Thank you Lisa & Dave for your kind words.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Pembroke 403. Given your extremely busy lives, I'm sure it provided a very welcome haven of peace and tranquility when you were not out and about. Ye certainly packed as much as was humanly possible into your short few days but there is still so much more to explore when you find some time to come back to Cape Town.

Meanwhile, I hope you both have a wonderful 2014.

“The Best Place to Stay in Cape Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our family has traveled to many places around the world, and Pembroke 403 was truly one of the loveliest accommodations we ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious apartment, its contemporary decor, and views of the harbor from the living room and of Table Mountain from the den. We packed a lot of activity into our short visit to Cape Town including the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, the beautiful drive to the Cape of Good Hope, and an equally scenic drive to see the whales in Hermanus. But some of our favorite moments of our visit were sipping excellent South African wine in 403 Pembroke while watching seals in the harbor, and enjoying the peace and luxury of the apartment itself.

Hi Jeff

Thank you for your great review.

It was a real pleasure to interact with you by phone & email right from the moment of your initial enquiry and I feel we almost shared your time in Cape Town. You certainly packed so much in and we were delighted that you were able to follow some of the itineraries that we so enjoy ourselves when we are in Cape Town.

Pembroke 403 is our real treasure and we are always especially thrilled to share it with people like yourself, Barbara and your two daughters, Juliana & Isabella. I hope the memories of both Pembroke 403 and of your Cape & Cape Town experiences will live with you all for many a day.

Gura math agaibh.

“Wow, wow and wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This is an absolutely amazing apartment. It must be one of the very best apartments in Capetown. It is right on the V&A waterfront and has dual aspect, with balconies facing the sea and the Cape Grace hotel and table mountain and the One and Only Hotel, on the other side and so the views are just wonderful. It's really big and very luxuriously furnished.Everything was really top end. We stayed here in February 2013 and are already talking about a return visit.

We booked directly through the owner, Eilis, who could not have been more helpful or accommodating. She answered all our questions and really wanted to ensure that our holiday in Pembroke 403 was perfect in every way. Restaurant recommendations, day trips, what not to miss, where to get the best coffee, freshly baked breads, steaks, sushi etc were all kindly offered by Eilis and we felt she took a real interest in our holiday.

We loved so much about the apartment, it is hard to know where to start. The two balconies means you have sun all day and right into the evenings. Both have sun loungers and a table and chairs. I loved the bed linens which were specially commissioned from Italy and all the lovely fluffy towels in the three large bathrooms. I loved the views from both big balconies. I loved watching the seals in the bay right in front of the apartment, using the binoculars which Eilis had kindly left there for our use. I loved looking at Table mountain in all its various hues. The art work all over the apartment and the glass is just fabulous. I loved the chairs in the living room which were so comfortable. My husband loved the three gorgeous televisions with every sports channel imaginable. We both enjoyed the location. It was great to just walk over to the waterfront, and it is just a few minutes drive from all the other many Cape Town attractions.

This is a big apartment.Obviously it is perfect for a large group, as it very comfortably sleeps six. I think it would be perfect for two couples who like to travel together, but also like a little privacy. Both suites are large and are at opposite ends of the apartment. The Table Mountain suite is slightly smaller, but it gets lovely afternoon and evening sun and is just so peaceful. Both suites have electronic safes, which is also ideal for 2 groups. The kitchen has everything that you could ever need. We made great use of the picnic basket and cooler box on trips to Cape Point etc. Eilis is a wine expert and importer. She will also advise on trips to various vineyards etc.

We had all the services of a top class hotel, but with the added benefit of complete privacy. We were met by Ozzy, who was available to us for the duration of our stay, if we needed any assistance or advice. He was super, friendly, helpful and always accommodating. Eilis even provided a mobile phone for our use which was really useful to make reservations in restaurants etc.

We had a really wonderful time in Pembroke 403. If you are looking for somewhere really great to stay in while in Cape Town, stay here. We can't wait to go back! Many thanks to Eilis for all her help, enthusiasm and interest.

“Luxury at the Marina in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 for a stay in November 2012
1
person found this review helpful

This enormous apartment is beyond luxury and is furnished with both taste and quality.
Overlooking the marina it is also on the edge of the V and A waterfront complex with many excellent restaurants and shops.
There is also fully secure underground parking and the whole complex is totally secure with plenty of security staff.
With unrestricted views of the ocean, sitting on the front patio in the evening is a joy ,and from the rear patio there are fabulous views of table mountain.
This place is not the usual holiday rental but is obviously a well cared for home.

“Luxury home away from home...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The entire experience staying at Pembroke 403 was very enjoyable. Our flight into Cape Town was delayed, but the management company was keeping track of us and knew we would be late checking in. The apartment itself is spectacular! Comfortable and spacious, and the views are just magnificent. It was a wonderful place to kick back after a hectic day of seeing Cape Town. Eilis and Seamus were very helpful and informative and happy to help with information about Cape Town. The cafe at the gym is a short walk away and was very handy for morning coffee and breakfast. We found the area to be safe and the usual caution re: big cities is required when moving around the city. Access to all the Cape Town spots was easy, either a short walk or drive away. We arranged a taxi on our first night for a dinner in the city and were able to use him all week long. Pembroke 403 offers a great alternative to a hotel stay!

“Private luxury in a piece of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Pembroke in Febuary this year. We found the appartment on the Internet. The place is just amazing with easy access to the waterfront and fantastic security. If you have heard its dangerous in certain parts of South Africa, this isn't one of them. We are a family of 4, two boys 12 and 15. The boys could wander over on their own to the waterfront without any thoughts of safety.
The people running the whole thing are just wonderful, very helpful and extremely efficient. We had a problem with the Internet they came over immediately and fixed it. The whole place is like a home away from home and I can recommend it most sincerely. We had a small glitch which had nothing to do with Pembroke, they recommended a dry cleaner, they turned out to be not great. Would we stay ther again? Most certainly!!

Many thanks Philippe for your kind remarks about your stay at our beautiful 5 star property at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

I am so glad you enjoyed it as much we would have liked for you. We do try very hard to make our guests stay at Pembroke 403 as enjoyable and seamless as possible.

I am also particularly glad that you emphasised the high level of safety - it is perhaps the one thing that people who have never visited Cape Town have some concerns about. Since we started to visit the Cape in 1998, we have never experienced any security issues though, as anywhere in the world, one should always exercise common sense. The fact that Pembroke 403 is within a very short walking distance of so many amenities for all ages makes it a perfect location highlighted by the fact that you were totally comfortable in letting your 12 and 15 year old boys come and go from the Waterfront.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Pembroke 403 in the not too distant future.

With every good wish.
