“Living here”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

I lived in a large old house in the quiet Southern Suburbs from May-July 2012. The houses in the area are beautiful during the day and there are some decent restaurants and grocery stores nearby. I'd recommend Rondebosch Commons and Liesbeek Parkway for running or biking. Newlands Stadium is a fun place to see a rugby match. I did feel sort of trapped out here since it's not safe to walk to the nearby towns at night and we're about a R70-120 cab ride from the city and other major attractions.

“Not sure how this is an attraction?”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

An attractive part of CT but it's just a suburb… not sure there's much to visit…? It's like going to Surrey in the UK… ??

Looking over Cape Town from Boyes Drive and Old Kaapsheweg - Mountains, see and lakes, and the most awesome sunrises!
