AREA INFO

 

DE WATERKANT

A district of Cape Town between the CBD and Green Point, below Signal Hill and above the V&A Waterfront, our self-catering properties are ideal for both vacation and business trips. We are conveniently located close to the Cape Town Convention Centre, V&A Waterfront and Cape Town Stadium.

Every Capetonian will tell you this is the trendy fashionable area of the city where if you like the buzz of a small village feel that is only ten minutes walk to the city center this is the place to stay. Described as a mix between San Francisco and Mykonos the area dates back to the late 1700’s.

Now a-days you still hear the noon day cannon from Signal Hill whilst wandering these historic cobbled streets. The area boasts some great restaurants, bars and clubs and retains a bohemian character that you’ll find hard to forget.
