Have had a wonderful month , to think that before I went to Cape Town I was worried where I would stay, I need not have worried, for it could not have been better than Barry Hall . Many thanks.
We enjoyed a delightful stay at Barry Hall. It is close to restaurants, shopping for any essentials, and transportation. The owner did everything possible to make our stay easy - from arranging airport transportation to personally greeting us at 11 p.m. and checking in regularly to ensure all was going well. The apartment itself is spacious and well furnished with recently updated bathrooms. The surroundings are attractive and comfortable for walking around. The building itself has one, two, and three bedroom apartments to suit parties of various sizes. We loved our stay and would highly recommend.
I can't say enough good things about Barry Hall. It is centrally located with great views. We were in apartment 3 with our 2 grown daughters. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable, and the beds were comfortably firm. It is a great value too!
Barry Hall is exactly as the listing describes. It is very clean, well maintained. Rita and the daily! housekeeper were very helpful but were in the background unless you needed them. We walked to dinner in the neighborhood twice, and found that Barry Hall was a great location for getting to the waterfront as well as to other sights near Cape Town.
I would very highly recommend Barry Hall to anyone, especially my friends and relatives.
Attractive building is on a quiet street in a quiet suburban neighborhood with adequate parking either on the property behind an electronically-operated gate or on the street. Set back from street, fronted by a secure gated entry and surrounded by nice gardens. 2nd floor apartment was spacious, full of light, and tastefully decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen. Rooms are expertly serviced daily; very helpful owner. Very near the wonderful waterfront Sea Point promenade; coffee & breakfast spot very close by; easy walking distance to 2 supermarkets, several banks, shops, lunch spots, etc. Walk to La Perla or La Mouette for good dinners. A perfect base for exploring the greater Cape Town area.
We loved our 10 days at Barry Hall. The location of the apartment is ideal. It is convenient to coffee shops, food shops and the lovely trail along the waterfront. We regularly jogged to Green Point Park - which is beautiful and well worth a visit. We will definitely contact Rita again when we next visit Cape Town.
We stayed at Barry Hall for 8 nights and absolutely loved it! What a lovely, self accomodating flat and grounds in a perfect, secure location at Sea Point. Rita was right there to meet us when we arrived and in touch if needed, along with her wonderful support team. We loved BBQ-ing in the courtyard braai area and meeting other guests who were staying there from other places in the world. IWe would rate this top notch and one of the highlights of our trip to South Africa.
Not only was Barry Hall in a wonderful location but the owner Rita, provided first class service.
As for the location, you would be hard pressed to find a better one. Within a 10 minute walk
you could find a couple of grocery, liquor, and pharmacy stores along with many outstanding
neighborhood restaurants. As an added bonus the property is located only a few blocks from the
ocean with its wonderful promenade filled with families, dog walkers, and art work. It is here
That you can catch the on and off red double Decker bus that will provide a good overview of the city
And it’s the surrounding area. We were able to save a day on our car service and it provided us with
A clear idea of what and where we wanted to spend more time and even saw things we were unaware
Of from our various tour books.
As for Rita, not only did she arrange for the car service to pick us up but she was there to greet us
herself at 11:00PM. She called to verify that we were fine after the worse wind in over 50 years had
Swept through the area and to provide us with information on what to see in the surround areas.
On top of that much of the furniture in the unit is designed by her husband and produced by their
Overall experience, Property description and photos were accurate. The property was clean and well maintained with few exceptions that were taken care of promptly. Issue of ants and a light switch. I would have loved to have had screens on the windows to keep out the mosquitoes, or at lease AC. However we know this is not the norm in the area. We have recommened this property to our friends.
