Nestled between the city and the Waterfront, De Waterkant is an area steeped in history and yet achingly hip and trendy. Walking along the perfectly preserved cobbled streets, you will love the colourful quaint cottages with their Dutch influenced architecture framed with flower boxes under the windows and big leafy trees lining the pavements. The hotly awaited extension to the Cape Quarter has added that extra 'wow' factor to the area with its abundance of boutique shops, restaurants, bars, galleries and european style cafes.
The lovely thing about the area, is that you are very central and within walking distance of many of the attractions that the Mother City has to offer. Walk to the V&A Waterfront in 15 mins, Long Street is 5 mins, museums and Company Gardens 10-15 mins.
The cableway up to Table Mountain is less than a 10 minute drive away, as are the fine beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton.
The block is within easy reach of all major highways - the journey to the airport is just a 15-20 minute drive, and to get away from it all, the rolling hills of the beautiful winelands of Stellenbosch and beyond is a mere 35 minute drive.
