Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in De Waterkant - B2 Soho on Strand

1 bedroom,free WIFI,Aircon,Table Mountain views,pool,free parking,24hr securit

Luxurious double volume loft with panoramic views of Table Mountain and Lions Head. Centrally situated in a prime location, most of the Mother City's attractions are within walking distance.

With added benefits like free WIFI, airconditioning, full DSTV bouquet, outdoor swimming pool & bbq facilities, free parking and 24 hour security/reception desk, making this the perfect choice for your holiday or business stay.

Suitable for 2 people, the apartment has just had a fresh new makeover with furnishings chosen to maximise luxury and comfort, making your stay feel like home away from home.

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 open plan living/kitchen/dining area opens up onto a large private balcony with outdoor seating.

The luxurious bathroom has both bath and shower, with free toiletries and plenty of soft fluffy towels.

Stairs lead you up to the mezzanine level loft bedroom with large kingsize bed, down duvet and plenty of cupboard space.

It really is hard to beat the location, the block is nestled between the uber cool De Waterkant Village, 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!

This apartement is perfect for a couple. Well located, it is easy to walk everywhere from there. The view on Table Mountain from the balcony is spectacular! The apartment itself is fabulous, clean and very well equiped.

Great base for a Cape Town stay

  • 5 out of 5
Very comfortable apartment in a great location to explore Cape Town. Beautiful views of Table Mountain and the colourful neighbourhood of Bo Kaap. Very convenient for numerous great cafes, restaurants and bars in De Waterkant. The owner is very helpful and provides a wealth of information about the area. I recommend this property and would happily return.

Truly Awesome Place in Every Respect

  • 5 out of 5
It's not always easy to tell what you're renting on the Internet, but I feel incredibly lucky to have landed in this gem. The location is perfect, in Bo Kaap right next to De Waterkant and City Bowl. The apartment is great, with all amenities and a breath-taking view. And the owner is incredibly sweet, thoughtful, and welcoming. I cannot imagine a better place from which to love Cape Town.

The apartment borders De Waterkant Village, the Bo Kaap and the City Centre. Each within spitting distance, and each with their own unique characters. Spend your day exploring De Waterkant village, this hip and trendy neighbourhood oozes with style and sophistication. Explore the cobbled streets, and marvel at the Dutch style colourful houses with their pretty flower boxes and tree lined pavements. Browse through the famous Cape Quarter with its abundance of boutique shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, and European style cafes. Take a peak in the design shops, Cape Town wasn’t named the 2014 design capital for nothing!

Alternatively, wander over to Heritage Square, the latest new spot for all things cool and trendy, not to mention the revival of Bree Street with its galleries, café’s and excellent restaurants that will have the foodies among you drooling! This is where it is happening with the locals! Don’t miss the 1st Thursday of the month, where food trucks gather in Heritage Square and the shops and galleries throw their doors open until late, blessing you with free wine and nibbles. This has become quite the social event in Cape Town.

Directly opposite the apartment, you can walk up Rose Street and into the heart of the Bo Kaap. Step back in time, and enjoy wandering around this historical Cape Malay area with its beautiful coloured houses. Don’t forget to be finished in time to walk up to Signal Hill for the firing of the noon gun!

The fan walk that was constructed for the FIFA World Cup runs parallel to the apartment block, and is the place to be if there are any street festivals such as Gay Pride, and the Cape Town festival. They all head this way, so you are in the perfect spot to join the festivities.
