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 !!!

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

We stayed at 110 Waterkant and were very pleased with the house. Clean, spacious, nice rooftop terrace, and a nice area. Cleaning every day. Nice restaurants and bistros in the neighbourhood, and Origin for breakfast!

Walking distance to V&A, Bo Kamp and downtown. Well-appointed, great staff. Much nicer than staying in a hotel room. Our cottage was air conditioned, had a fully equipped kitchen, a fireplace and bath with both tub and separate shower.
