As a couple we spent a week at this property and found it to be a quiet and chilled time, despite being in the city. It is a steep walk down to the town, being situated at the base of Signal hill so we used Uber which was great. The views are incredible over the city and Table mountain. Friendly...

We had a lovely stay. The place was nice and clean. Would recommend to get one of the rooms that look over the city (this would be beautiful at night). The room we were in you could only see the city from the kitchen window, but still lovely.

Well situated to visit cape town by public transportation. City sightseeing double decker bus easily accessible. Save to walk around during the day, not so much at night. Save to drive car to restaurant at...

Area is still in process of gentrification - our car was broken into, hostess tried her best to explain it was apparently our fault because we had cookies on the front seat. Next day another car was broken into, not sure if they also had cookies. Would give it a firm miss due to the crime in the area /...

The apartment was superb, amazing views of the mountain and the city. Kitchen well stocked with pots and pans etc. so we could make a few meals. Katrin was so helpful and even provided a mobile for us to use while we stayed there. Go for the apartment with the city and mountain view, you won't regret it.

A lovely place to stay in Cape Town! Central, steps away from Bo-Kaap and the downtown. Plenty of corner shops, cafes, and restaurants around. A supermarket is within walking distance. Katrin is a great hostess! We arranged an airport pickup and drop-off with her - the price was great and the service was very reliable. Katrin greeted us upon her...
