Great place near the center of Cape Town.

4 of 5
The property is comfortable and fairly well maintained. Just off Rose street on the edge of Bo Kaap, it makes for easy walking acces to Bree street, Long Street and all the eateries there. The owner Joachim was very helpful. There is secure parking where the property shares a courtyard with half a dozen others. We enjoyed our stay here it is convenient, quiet and safe.

Home away from home

Really enjoyed staying at this location. Very clean, comfortable and a lovely garden shared with the condominiums. All appliances and kitchen supplies top-notch. We were met at the property by the owner who explained everything -- as well as leaving us a welcome bottle of bubbly, coffee, tea, candies and flowers. The owner is very efficient and always got back on inquiries promptly. Some noise at night because we visited during a big celebratory period and one of the neighbours was noisy one day but otherwise no problem. Would definitely use this property again if in Cape Town. Also handy to good restaurants and a fine wine shop, located in the Museum district and handy to St. George's Cathedral.
