My family (my husband and I, and 2 boys - 17 and 18) arrived in Cape Town after 2 days of travelling. We were greeted at the airport by a driver organized by Waterkant Cottages. He wisked us off to our home for the next 4 nights. The three bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was perfect for our stay in Cape...

I found this property on a third-party website. It had minimal reviews, yet an amazing value. When I visited TripAdvisors, the property had many great reviews and decided to go for the booking. When booking on a third-party website, or probably directly from them, they will email you separately to submit a booking form that you need to fill out...

We stayed at 2 Bayview Terrace for a week in the winter. I chose it because of the size, private garage (which is small but we did manage to reverse park the 4wd in it -if I were to do it again i would rent a smaller car as the high clearance wasn't necessary around Cape Town) It was great...

I stayed in this house for a week earlier this month, August 2015. One of the reasons I booked this house is that it has a large open fireplace, perfect for the cold Cape Town evenings. However it must be noted that you are not allowed to use this, which was a major disappointment. The result was that it was...

Richard the owner was extremely helpful in assisting us to find the perfect accommodation for our needs. We stayed in a three bedroom double story cottage with its own pool and jacuzzi. The cottage was extremely comfortable with only top-end finishings and appliances. It was spacious and provided separate entertainment areas, balconies and decks that allowed everyone to have privacy...

We have now stayed at 24 Loader Street twice and absolutely love it - this particular property in the portfolio is a 3 bed, 2 bath with plunge pool and Jacuzzi and spectacular views of Table Mountain and the harbour from the roof deck.

I got a great deal on this through booking.com - but even on their regular rates, it's a good buy. Excellent location, beautifully appointed. So much space! (What I was going to do with a roof deck and a patio with a plunge pool is beyond me!) In the heart of De Waterkant village with excellent restaurants and cafes in...

We stayed at 90 De Waterkant. We had everything you could possibly wish for. Everyone in the family had their own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances, cutlery, crockery etc. We had a laundry room downstairs with washing machine and dryer. The area is great as you have a choice of restaurants and a supermarket all...

Staying at one of the Waterkant Cottages made our stay in Cape Town. It is a tremendous find. We stayed at 110 Waterkant for four nights. Way more space than we needed but that is not a complaint. This townhouse has three bedrooms and two full baths. We only used the master bedroom. But the best part were the two...
