Two-story (well, one, plus the loft BR) on the NW corner of the building. Accommodation was comfortable and clean with great views toward the V&A, as well as Table Mountain. The location was very convenient - a 5 minute walk to shops down Main/Somerset, and about 15 minutes to V&A and Green Point Stadium. Secure parking is also available with 24-hr access. Chris met us there on Wednesday, and also arranged for a cab for me on Monday as we had varying departure times. (Note that Boundary Rd is extremely steep (~18% grade) and the unit is located about halfway up - so if you are walking, comfortable shoes are a must.)

The view of the Table Mountain from the balcony and the dining area is in reality even more stunning than the pictures at the HomeAway site show. The apartment is comfortable, tasteful and well equipped (there is no washing-machine but why wash your own things when you can buy it to a low cost from a lot of good laundries in the city). The Tamboerskloof area is quiet, still centrally located; walking distance to, for example, Company's Garden is no more than 20 minutes. The nearest station of the brand new Cape Town bus system is on just a few minutes walking distance (and taxis are still very cheap in CT). Nice restaurants and a good shopping mall are within 10-15 minutes walk. We can assure everyone who is new to CT that it's perfectly safe to walk around in this area in daytime. The whole property is well-managed and quiet; a small bunch of lazy cats and two friendly ducks are a nice and welcoming contribution to the the well-kept garden. Service as well as information and personal contacts with the owners have been extremely good and helpful. We have been to CT several times before and we can warmly recommend this apartment to anyone who want to experience something of the best and most genuine of the city.

It is both modern and comfortable, with a well-equipt kitchen - I especially like the automatic coffeemaker! - DSTV and a washing machine. The neighborhood has a good selection of restaurants and a Woolworths food market just around the corner. Hannes and Francois are most welcoming and helpful hosts. I shall most definitely be returning!
