“Perfect ”
Reviewed March 19, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The accommodation is clean spacious and very relaxing, and well positioned in the City. There are bars and restaurants nearby and the hop on hop off bus route passes the end of the street the nearest stop is 5 minutes walk away

In addition the owner is a very nice chap who was helpful and very genuine.

We had a great stay in Cape Town and this apartment played a big part in this.

Perfect

“Excellent place to stay after a busy day exploring Cape Town”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Location is excellent, on a bus route (recommended for travel around town) near the cable car to Table Top Mountain. Very close to restaurants, stores and laundry. Kitchen is suitable for cooking basic meals, which is what we wanted/needed. Very comfortable 2 bedrooms, nice big bathroom, living room is cosy, terrace is the deal breaker..... The most wonderful place to hang out in the evening and enjoy a local bottle of local wine. If you want somewhere to relax after a day of walking the city, this is the place. Parking is difficult, the same in most of the city. Warning: this place is at the top of a hill (slight exaggeration but it is a long walk up hill).

We stayed for 6 nights in Down the lane after a 3 weeks/5700 km's trip in South Africa. It was a welcome, comfortable and convenient place to stay: excellent location in relation to city centre and "away from city" area's. Lots of restaurants, super market, laundry and other facilities at hand. Spotlessly clean, well maintained, great hosts.
The living room is a bit small for 4 people. Wifi is available in two nearby small café's.
We would go there again without a doubt.

It is always scary arranging a holiday rental from thousands of miles away. You never know what you will find when you arrive or even if the rental is legitimate. How happy we were to be greeted by pleasant and welcoming Renier and shown to our lovely guest house. Down the Lane is spotless and the bedrooms are spacious. The garden patio makes a nice place to sit and relax or even to dry your hand washables in privacy.
The home is in a nice residential area within walking distance of a good coffee shop with WiFi, a laundromat and several restaurants. The rental is at the top of a hill-good for walking off a few post dinner and wine calories but tricky if you have serious knee problems. On street parking was always available.
Our hosts were unobtrusive, gracious and very helpful. I stayed with my older mother here. We both agree that we would go back in a flash.
Definitely have dinner at Millers Thumb-delicious and close by.
You realize how addicted you are to WiFi when there isn't any. Last minute tickets to events,looking up tour details etc cannot be done from the apartment. A quick trip to the coffee shop mitigates this minor inconvenience.

Me and my Daughter and Sun in law rented the apartment during my visit to Cape Town. The hosts are absolutely charming and helpful. The almost tropical patio garden is small but effective, loved the BBQ, with a gate to Warren Street, the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Very central in Cape Town. Loads of Restaurants and shops in walking distance! View of table mountain.

Thank you for such a great stay in a world class city. Down the Lane was in a great location for restaurants and only a few minutes from the harbor area as well as Table Mountain. We had a comfortable sleep and it was all just great! Good memories...
