“Peaceful apartment in a prime site, presented & maintained with care”

person found this review helpful

Dominique, the owner, met us when we arrived from our flight, very early in the morning took us around the apartment, explained all that we needed to know and went out of her way to be helpful. There was even a 'welcome' pack of essentials like milk and a bottle of wine waiting for our arrival. The location is perfect, overlooking the 'One & Only' hotel, across the peaceful canal, a few minutes walk to the V&A shopping and eating complex. Dominique has also gone to the trouble to arrange that the apartment has use of the gym and the most attractive of the four or five outdoor pools within the apartment complex. The charge for the apartment is very reasonable (we stayed in another, right next door that was in a poor state of maintenance and cost more!). Highly recommended, we'll certainly return if we can!

“Fantastic Apartment, Excellent Location, Wonderful Host!!!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

This was our sixth visit to Cape Town, but the first time we stayed at the Waterfront.. We rented the Vertigo apartment in the Altmore Building (overlooking side of Cape Grace hotel) for 14 days. Dominique (the owner) is an absolute sweetheart and is always available (via mobile or email) if you need to get in touch with her. The apartment exceeded our expectations as all the faciliites were ideal for self catering especially with great kitchen inc: w/machine, a lovely big lounge and large outside balcony - and the bed is SO comfortable!!! The location is fantastic as you're central to everything and extremely safe. Make sure you walk along to the 5* One & Only Hotel as they serve fab cocktails at a very cheap price! You must visit Willoughby's in the V&A Shopping Mall for the world's best Sushi (only 15 min walk!) . Can't speak highly enough of Vertigo, especially if you're looking for a safe, affordable and luxurious option at the Waterfront. Will definitely return!!
