The first thing any of my guests say when walking into B2 Soho on Strand, is 'Wow look at those views'!! They simply are to die for!! From the moment you walk in the door, the pretty coloured houses of the Bo Kaap and Lions Head will dazzle you, then as you enter the living area, Table Mountain lays before you like the beautiful jewel that it is. Step out onto your large private balcony, and enjoy uninterrupted, 180 degree panoramic views of Table Mountain, Lions Head, and Signal Hill. The perfect spot to enjoy sundowners or eating alfresco.
This luxurious double volume loft with huge floor to ceiling windows, really is a treat. Sporting a fresh makeover, the furnishings have been chosen to maximise luxury and comfort, making your stay feel like a home away from home.
The open plan living/dining and kitchen area make life easy. Enjoy watching a spot of TV (32inch HD) complete with the full bouquet of DSTV channels (yes this includes sport!!) Or get busy on the internet, WIFI is unlimited and completely free!
The kitchen is large, fully equipped, and loved by people who cook – it has everything you need.Tea and delicious freshly ground coffee is complimentary, as is a bottle of wine to welcome your arrival.
The luxurious bathroom has both bath and shower, with plenty of hot water, toiletries and soft fluffy towels.
Stairs lead you up to the mezzanine level loft bedroom with large kingsize bed, down duvet and plenty of cupboard space.
If you feel like a swim, then just hop down one floor to the communal pool and sun-deck, with BBQ facilities for those who like to cook like the South Africans!
The complex has 24hr security and reception desk, and there is free secure parking for your car in the garage.
It is hard to beat the location, the block is nestled between the uber cool De Waterkant, City Centre and the Bo Kaap. Loads of top rated restaurants are within a stone’s throw, the super cool Bree Street, Heritage Square, and the Cape Quarter are 2 mins walk. Long Street and the heart of the Bo Kaap 5 mins walk, V&A Waterfront 15 mins walk. Company Gardens, the museums and CTICC 10 mins walk. To get to the beaches or the Cable car, you can hop on a MyCiti bus, or take a 10 min taxi ride. I have put together a comprehensive guide to help you get the most out of your stay with hints and tips of what to do/where to eat etc.
With super easy access to the main highways, you will be at the airport in 20 mins, and 35 mins you will be in the heart of the Winelands.

About Claire Parrish
I am originally from Newcastle in the North East of England. After living and working in the corporate world in London for 6 years, i decided i needed a break. I enrolled on a volunteer program which enabled me to work with lions in Zimbabwe, and then at a health clinic in Zambia. It was in Zambia that i knew my life had to change, it seemed to me, that in Africa you could be whatever you wanted to be! I was allowed to help deliver babies, was a lab technician, amongst other things, and also in the afternoons i taught kids English.
At the end of the volunteering, i joined an overland tour which ended in Cape Town. I fell instantly in love with the city and decided i would live there. I had no clue what i would do when i moved, but things fell into place instantly and i started modelling and acting in TV commercials. I have now lived in Cape Town 7 years, and can truly call it my home. I spend any of my free time hiking on the mountain, i love living so close to, and having access to such beautiful nature.
Claire Parrish purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Claire Parrish chose De Waterkant
When i first arrived in Cape Town i stumbled upon De Waterkant. I loved the quaint cobbled streets and felt like it was a secret place i had uncovered. The original Cape Quarter was just the piazza, and of course since then it has been extended and grown into a delightful hip and trendy area loved and known by all.
What makes this apartment unique
I actually looked at many properties in the area, but my favorite block was Soho on Strand. It seemed quiet and tranquil considering it was in the middle of the city and with the huge glass windows in every foyer, the views were stunning. The minute i walked into B2 my breath was taken away by the view before me. I loved the double volume loft style, and the apartment just had that special feel. I made an offer immediately and never went back again until the day the keys were handed over. I was that sure this was the one!
