We were introduced to De Waterkant Cottages when we were invited to stay by our friends who are regular customers. We loved the area, were amazed by the cottage we stayed in and loved to be able to walk to the Waterfront. I am going to recommend De Waterkant Cottages to any of my friends that visit Cape Town.

I can't speak highly enough of staying with De Waterkant Cottages. Each cottage is self contained, and cleaned every e cottages themselves are LOVELY - the amenities vary but most have some or all of roof terrace, pool, spa, great view, small garden oasis. And within easy and safe walk to great tourist attractions - the V&A waterfront, Greenmarket square,...

We stayed at 29 Jarvis Street, a two bedroom house, for three nights. It's perfect for two couples with two bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a large living/kitchen area. The kitchen is pretty well equipped (could may be do with a bit more cutlery and glasses for 4 people), even more so that there is a daily cleaning...

2 friends and I stayed in the 75 Loader St cottage for a week last November. We were very happy with the place. It's a self-service apartment but a cleaning lady still tidied up the cottage everyday. The kitchen was complete and the bedrooms were very comfy. We loved the deck on top of the cottage and had we had...

We stayed at the appartment on Loader 88 Street. It was a very comfortable apartment, modernly designed, with 3 bedrooms, nice leaving room and a very nice kitchen with all needed equipment. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was cleaned on a daily basis.

We stayed in a very nicely appointed three-bedroom house just up the street from the office. We had a gorgeous view of Table Mountain and the city from the house and its outdoor areas. The beds were comfortable and the cleaning staff kept everything immaculate. However, we had booked the house because it had a hot tub on the terrace,...

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...

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...
