Every Capetonian will tell you this is the trendy fashionable De Waterkant where if you like the buzz of a small village that is only ten minutes walk to the city center this is the place to stay. Described as a mix between San Francisco and Mykanos 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.

With our Cape Town accommodation based in and around this area its a great place to stay and discover the city.
