“Marina experience”
Reviewed March 5, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Walking into the apartment already gave me the holiday feel and once I opened the balcony doors it felt as if I had finally arrived at my opulent breakaway. The apartment was tremendously well equipped with everything that one would require for a truly enjoyable stay. All the rooms are tastefully designed as well as being very user friendly. Being within walking distance of all the marina amenities as well as the bustling V & A Waterfront make this apartment the perfect balance between relaxation and fun in the sun. It fully deserves all 5 stars and I will definitely go back there.

Thank you Daniel for your generous feedback.

I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay. Doesn't that view from the Marina balcony really blow you away? The tranquillity of the water surrounding the apartment contrasts with the busy vibe of the V&A Waterfront a short few minutes walk away and the sounds are those of the seabirds and seals.

I'm glad you found everything to be user friendly - I know there is a lot of technology from the integrated Bang & Olufsen system to the remote controlled mood lighting.

I hope you had lots of fun and sun and that you were refreshed and energised at the end of your stay.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Pembroke 403 in the not too distant future.

All the best

“Fabulous”
Reviewed February 25, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

A wonderful apartment with one balcony overlooking the marina and the other overlooking Table Mountain. This enabled us to sit in sun or shade whenever we wanted. Very comfortable. Easy walk to the V & A.

I am so glad you enjoyed Pembroke 403. It is really such a stunning place and aren't the views from the balconies breathtaking?

I'm sorry that you didn't find the directions to the property to be somewhat less than perfect - how could we help with that for again?

The bed in the Mountain Suite is 1500mm rather than 1600mm as in the Marina Suite - both are extra length. It is possible to make up another 1600 bed in the second TV lounge but it is obviously too late for your recent stay.

If there is anything we could do to make your next visit even better, please do let me know - we are always striving to make things as perfect as possible for all of guests.

Thank you for your stay and your feedback.

We hope we will be able to welcome you to Cape Town and Pembroke 403 again.

With every good wish from Ireland (where we live).

“Absolute luxury”
Reviewed October 3, 2011 for a stay in July 2010

Everything about Pembroke 403 is pure class. From the sophisticated decor and breath taking views to the perfect location and numerous local attractions, this was a holiday like no other. All dealings with management was flawless including booking, arrival and any queries throughout the stay. The apartment itself is spacious and beautifully decorated, with the front facing onto the beautiful V&A waterfront and the rear looking at the famous Table Mountain. It has everything one could want including little extra details including a high tech lighting system and surround sound. The apartment is also perfectly located less then a 5 minute walk away from the main V&A which has a multitude of beautiful restaurants, bars and shops. Pembroke 403 is a little piece of paradise and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

“Hard to beat this in Cape Town!”
Reviewed July 19, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

This was just the most wonderful break ever! Pembroke 403 is a little piece of heaven tucked away in the Waterfront, quiet and ultra luxurious! So great to be close to some of the best restaurants and shopping in the country, yet I felt away from it all.
The apartment is superbly furnished, with SUCH style, and it has the most fantastic views! Just loved waking up to the seals grunting and seeing the waterfront come alive in the distance. Its just simply amazing, cant wait for my next visit! Highly recommended!

“Location, location, stunning views and sheer class”
Reviewed June 27, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

Location, exquisite decor, and the very best Waterfront views mixed with superb vacation management make for a great holiday. During our stay, we had the feeling that we were taking care of a prized asset, as opposed to a packaged vacation venue. Attention to detail within the apartment is exceptional, such as mood lighting, B&O sound in all rooms, climate control and the comprehensive wine service. The interaction with the owners prior, during and post our stay made it all the more memorable.

“The best accommodation in Cape Town's Waterfront”
Reviewed June 26, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

It is diffucult to find fault in this superb accommodation - it's luxuriously furnished, perfectly situated, well serviced, incredibly spacious, and extremely comfortable. All facilities you can expect from 6 star accommodation are available in this apartment and on your doorstep. This is a ''gem'' nestled in the best marina in Africa and an absolute ''must' when visiting South Africa's famous Cape Town.

“Excellent views & Luxury Accomodation”
Reviewed June 13, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We stayed here for a week in February. 5 Adults and 1 Toddler. On arrival we were shown through the security gates to Pembroke. We had underground car parking for 2 cars and a lift direct to our floor. Pembroke 403 has 2 en suite bedrooms and a spare room with a bed and another shower room with toilet. The room at the back overlooked Table Mountain with a balcony. The main bedroom overlooks the Waterfront with sliding doors leading to the most awesome view. We shared this room with our 18 month old toddler. The bathroom has a jacuzzi bath, seperate shower and toilet.

The kitchen and seperate laundry room have everything you need with wonderful views over the Waterfront. Our lounge had really comfortable couches and a big flat screen TV with satelite, our toddler loved it. The lounge had sliding doors leading to the large balcony with 2 sun loungers and seating for 6. Most evenings we watched the world go by having a few cocktails on the balcony.

Pembroke 403 is in the Waterfront Complex, at night we would exit the security gates at the One & Only Hotel, cross the canal and take a 5 minute walk to the Waterfront Restaurants and Shops. There are so many Restaurants to try, all tastes are catered for. You can even get Take Aways delivered to your door.

We tried the swimming pool and had loads of fun with our son, the weather is so hot, there is also a gym. Cape Town Aquarium is next door to the One & Only, we went there every day with our son. It has a lovely cafe and kids play room.

We had such a fantastic holiday in Cape Town and all so look forward to returning to the luxurious and sophisticated Pembroke 403.
