More space than we needed but great house, views, location and service! We stayed a week and it was the perfect location to explore Cape Town... The house was clean and well appointed with awesome views. The staff were responsive and friendly.

Walking distance to V&A, Bo Kamp and downtown. Well-appointed, great staff. Much nicer than staying in a hotel room. Our cottage was air conditioned, had a fully equipped kitchen, a fireplace and bath with both tub and separate shower.

We have been two years in a row, and number 40 Napier street is our new home from home we love it so much! Right bang in the middle of De Waterkant and easily accessible to the waterfront and other attractions, this is a perfect location. The team are really friendly and helpful. Check in is from 2, and parking...

We stayed at 52 Loader for 12 nights over the Christmas and New Year period and were extremely impressed by the standard of accommodation provided. The house had 2 bedrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs, a lovely lounge, kitchen, bathroom, small courtyard and small balcony. The property was newly decorated and beautifully furnished to a very high standard. The property...

Stated here recently with friends for 5 nights and absolutely loved it. The highlight of the property has to be the 4 terraces meaning so many stunning views of the waterfront and table mountain. The property had all the amenities we needed for our stay, to cook our own food etc. The location is fantastic, and there are some great...

What a gem! We booked this cottage at the last minute while visiting Cape Town, and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The cottage itself (we stayed in the mustard colored one #42 Napier i think), and it was just gorgeous!! The cottage was huge, with 3 really great bedrooms, with the master room being just breathtakingly beautiful. The...

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...
