About Marina

I am an Italian translator with a passion for food, people and adventurous travelling. I speak English, French, Spanish and Italian.

After travelling solo for 7 years, I found my home in Cape Town, my favorite place in the world!

I am very involved in the Couchsurfing community and I love dancing salsa and Scuba diving.

Renting my property helps me to keep a traveler's mindset and to share my love for this incredible city. If it's your first time in Cape Town, I will be happy to give you tips and show you my favorite spots to make sure you enjoy your time here to the max.

Marina purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Marina chose Greenmarket Square

Cape Town has everything I was dreaming of finding in one place.

Friendly and colorful people, diverse cultures, delicious food and wine, tasteful and unique crafts, amazing cultural and musical events, fun parties, beautiful natural landscapes, mountains, beaches, forests, national park hikes, all within 10 minutes drive.

What makes this apartment unique

The wooden floors, the big french windows that let in the bright African light, the funky neighbours and beautiful finishes, the central location while still being protected from the city noise, made me fall in love with this apartment right from the start.

Very nice appartment in the heart of the city

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I were traveling to Cape Town and this appartment was perfect. There were two separate beds which was hard to find with a VRBO. Wonderful service from Maria and Steven. Great food right across the street at the Eastern Bazaar. The location was very close to the city but the neighborhood can by a bit edgy at night.

Marina is the best hostess in the city!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, comfortable, and in a good, central location. Marina will help you arrange your Cape Town activities, solve your logistics issues, decide where to eat, etc. The price is wonderful. It is on the third floor, but Marina even helped with our luggage!

lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was quiet and safe and had all the amenities we wanted. In a great central location within walking distance to all the main sights.

Marina was a lovely host. She was friendly and welcoming and explained everything about the apartment. We cancelled our first night at a very late stage, but she still gave us a partial refund, without us even asking. I would thoroughly recommend you stay at this lovely place!
