                                                            Lovely, centrally located apartment.

                                                            My wife and I were met at the property by Mr. Geneen Senior who could not have been more friendly or helpful. We had actually booked apartment 1505 for 8 nights but were actually lodged in 1604 because the present tenants of 1505 wanted to extend their stay. The apartment (1604) is modern, clean and airy with a brilliant view of table mountain. We had no problems whatsoever and would gladly stay there again. Worth the 5 stars we have given it. I would also like to add that dealing with Mr Geneen Junior when booking our stay was very easy.

                                                            Lovely flat in great location

                                                            This was our first visit to Cape Town and we didn't know quite what to expect. The flat had plenty of room for my (adult) daughter, my wife, and me, and was very well laid-out and furnished. The views of Table Mountain are really quite special. Everything worked, the owners communicated well and sent out lots of helpful information in advance. The flat is just a couple of blocks from some nice restaurants and a useful convenience store, and just another 5 (?) blocks away from a very nice grocery store and a pharmacy/chemist. The neighbors who handle the changeovers were absolutely wonderful and more than willing to help in any way possible. All in all, it couldn't have been nicer. We would definitely recommend it.

                                                            Great stay in Cape Town for the Cycle Tour weekend (arrived Wednesday morning and departed Monday). 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.)
