Perfect in every respect. I like clean places and De Waterkant House is super clean, I would say spotless. Rooms make you feel like you are at home, they have a swimming pool and a working fire place. All major points of the city are 10 minutes by a taxi. My room, Napier, had a view of the Table Mountain.
They have a cafe, that you get vouchers for, and breakfast is to die for, I highly recommend poached eggs with Cape Malay mince or Salmon Salad. Then you can have your espresso while contemplating a sunrise over the harbor or looking at the slopes of the table mountain.
The hosts at Waterkant village know everything and upon request will book a tour for you. They also have a deal with a taxi company for an airport transfer which will save you money.

Dear Albert K

Thank you very much for your lovely review, we do strive to create a home away from home to all our guests.

The Village Café is a definitely a service that we are proud to be affiliated with. On your next visit you should try some of their amazing lunches and remember should you miss breakfast you can also use your voucher towards lunch.

Kind Regards

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in DeWaterkant Guest House - just a couple of things to note - it was a work trip so it was a bit frustrating that you couldn't get very good Internet access in the rooms. The check-in time of 2pm was quite late because we need to shower and rush off to meetings. However, the place is lovely and the rooms are very well maintained and the lounge and plunge pool area were gorgeous for our evening debriefs.

Room Tip: The travellers rooms are very good value and DeWaterkant Guest House was lovely - the rooms downstai...

Dear Sian M

Thank you very much for your review. Due to the poor reception in the area we are looking at alternative options to improve the quality and speed of the signal. Alternatively we do have complimentary wifi in reception for all of our in house guests.

Our check out time is 11:00 and check in time 14:00. We do encourage our guests to request any early check in or late departure on making their reservation in order for us to accommodate where possible.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the near future.

Kind Regards
Chantel Wessels

Beautiful old home in the heart of one of Cape Town's trendiest neighborhoods. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and was particularly enthralled by the roof, which offers a perfect place to relax with a good book and a great bottle of South African wine. Will certainly consider staying here again when I next pass through Cape Town.

What an awesome and inexpensive place to stay. Very clean and spacious and within walking distance to everything. De Waterkant provides excellent service and I was blown away by the friendliness of everyone. We were shown where to park and taken to our rooms. First time stay but will make De Waterkant my accommodation base when in Cape Town again.

My husband & I travelled to Cape Town to run the Two Oceans half marathon and after having a very bad experience last year with accommodation we were blown away by our little home at De Waterkant. The staff were amazing from the word go with making the booking, to check-in and for the duration of our stay. The apartment felt like home away from home fitted with everything you could think of. There are restaurants and an amazing Spar in walking distance. We will definitely stay there again next year!

Room Tip: I think a 2nd story unit is better than a ground floor as the traffic can be a bit noisy.

The De Waterkrant Village is one of the best experience for a stay in Cape Town. With Village & Life, you'll get luxury apartment in a charming house for quite a good rate. They are helpfull and very professional. Excellent option.

Room Tip: Ask for a luxury with roof terrasse !

I needed an emergency stop over for two nights. We were settled within 45 minutes, even though we arrived at the office late in the day during high season.

I was with my little girl of 2.5 and alone, extra help was offered to unload and load the car which was housed securely but two floors down from the apartment.

The apartment was clean, air conditioned, great views, well equipped kitchen, fun splash pool. Close to many restaurants and shops for both supplies and indulgent shopping.

I would certainly return to De Waterkant.

Colourful De Waterkant Village is a unique European influenced village of semi-detached quaint cottages and cobbled streets preserved from the 1760’s. Cradled between the city and the V&A Waterfront, De Waterkant Village is avant-garde, a cultural urban refuge highlighted by the abundance of restaurants, art galleries, clubs, salsa clubs, tapas bars and Parisian inspired café’s. Drawing comparisons from cultural and artistic villages from all over the world, De Waterkant embraces individuality and theatricality, echoed in the architecture and vibrancy of its residents and visitors. Walking on the beautiful sidewalks, one cannot help but be caught up in its spell, cast by the beauty of the Dutch influenced architecture, with flower boxes under the windows, sprawling balconies and rooftop decks providing exquisite views and majestic old trees that line the streets, filtering the sun selectively through their branches.
