The listing description was accurate, and the property was clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable, with good quality linen. Sufficient seating.The owners went the extra mile with myciti bus cards, a complimentary bottle of wine, and easy early check-out. The secure parking bay is a real benefit. The area can be recommended. Woolworths food store right around the corner made self-catering easy. The apartment block is well maintained and quiet, the doorman friendly and the area, walking distance to the V & A Waterfront, felt safe. I will definitely recommend, and would like to stay again in future.

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.
