“Fantastic properties in great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2010

Our large group (20) had 3 properties between Xmas and New Year - 2 in Loader Street and one in the street below. We stayed in 96 Loader Street - a great 4 bedroom 3 bath cottage with multiple deck areas and a plunge pool. (Another of the properties had a roof top hot tub).
Its all very contemporary and stylishly furnished - flat screen tv's in every bedroom - all you could wish for. The master suite is to die for, one ensuite bedroom is a separate annex (above the garage), the other 2 doubles are small on the ground floor and share a shower room.
Not really toddler friendly (open stairs, no net for the pool) - but we had one and we coped.
Only gripe was that although a (small) sellection of tea/coffee/crisps were provided for immediate use there were no other 'basics' provided. Not a big problem as there is a FANTASTIC Spar supermarket in the new Cape Quarter only 5 minutes away - but when you are only there for 4 nights you dont really want to buy a whole box of washing powder/kitchen roll/cooking oil etc etc. In the UK I would expect this to be provided in this std of property - perhaps this is normal in SA though.
There was also confusion as to whether we could have a BBQ at the property. I had asked in advance and had been told 'that there was room on the deck', however on arrival we were told 'no - due to fire hazards'. However we later found a large kettle drum BBQ in the garage - but didnt use it as it was so far away from the deck.
De Waterkant is a great area - lovely bars and restaurants in the Cape Quarter or its only a 10 mins walk to the V&A. Felt totally safe - its very pretty and would definately stay there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2009

We stayed in an apartment managed by African Elite at the new Cape Quarter annex that opened early November. The location is excellent with many restaurants and shops in the Cape Quarter, which is in the Waterkant district. Laundry is in the apartment, which was fantastic, as well as wireless internet access. It is a 15 - 20 minute walk to both the V&A Waterfront and historic sites. There is also free underground parking in the garage. The apartment is self-catering, but there is a grocery in the building. Beautiful views from both the bedrooms and balcony. Be aware that the apartment is very modern. Neither the bedrooms or bathrooms have doors, so privacy is extremely limited. As the Cape Quarter also has entertainment on the weekends, the noise level can be quite loud, although we were there opening weekend so it may not be as bad at other times. The music doesn't go past midnight or so.
