Eight best friends, a baby and Cape Town. FABULOUS. Loved staying in 39 Dixon De Waterkant Cottages as it is in the hub of Cape Town and close to EVERYTHING. It's a great base to work from when exploring Cape Town. The vibe of the area is very European and we also felt very safe. Close to long street and... More

Accommodation was absolutely fabulous. Great service from the staff and the Self Catering Unit was superb. Had everything that one could need. Great view, central location, relaxed, comfortable,...

Our family (2 adults and 2 teens) stayed here for several nights at the start of our SA adventure. What a fabulous place to start! The accommodation, over three floors, was clean, spacious and well stocked with everything we needed. The 3rd floor, consisted of a hot tub with the most spectacular views of Table Mountain (see photo). The Waterfront... More

Three of us (two adults and a teenager) stayed at 40 Napier for 6 nights. I chose de Waterkant because of the value (the price was the same for a small hotel room), and we were not disappointed. We loved the spaciousness and having a "home" to go to vs. a hotel room at the end of a long day.... More

I stayed at 77 Loader Street with a friend during our whistle stop tour of Cape Town. It was a perfect base for our holiday. The apartment was kitted out with all the bits and pieces you would expect ( and a few more ). Felt totally safe and secure in the house and would highly recommend for anyone looking... More

We stayed at the De Waterkant Cottages property located at 24 Loader Street for five nights and everything was perfect from the time I inquired about booking until the moment we left. The staff was incredibly responsive in communications prior to our stay and welcoming upon our arrival. We arrived prior to checkin and they allowed us to leave our... More

This was by far the best place we've stayed at in Cape Town. Clean affordable accommodation close to many cafes and very central. Security is good and it's a nice and quiet area. Highly recommended !!!

Was a bit worried about staying here as was a student in Cape Town in the 90's and this was a no-go zone. HOWEVER, it is now amazing. the whole are has been refurbished and the little houses converted into super cool holiday accommodation. The company essentially rents out other peoples homes and manages them. The staff were very helpful.... More
