AREA INFO

Based in and around trendy De Waterkant Village, a district of Cape Town right next to the CBD, our self-catering properties are ideal for both vacation and business trips. We are conveniently located 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 drinking coffee at The Village Café, watching the boats on the distant horizon ahead. The area boasts some of the best restaurants, bars and clubs in Cape Town and retains a bohemian character that you’ll find hard to forget.
