DELUXE APARTMENT IN DE WATERKANT - 216 THE ROCKWELL

De Waterkant Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Lovely 1-Bedroom Apartment with Large Protected Balcony in Fantastic Location

This designer apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the fabulous large balcony that transforms the living space.

Facing north, this private apartment on the 2nd floor of The Rockwell is protected from the Cape Town winds and is lovely and sunny in winter, yet cool and eternally liveable in the summer. With a Balinese divan and a dining table outside, this apartment is all about making the most of Cape Town and the outdoors.

The air-conditioned interior was designed by a renowned interior designer with a retro feel. It complements the Rockwell’s 1900s New York inspired architecture. The retro design makes full use of the interior space and flows easily into the protected balcony area. There are nice views across the De Waterkant area to the harbour and Cape Town Stadium.

There is a full kitchen and a washer and dryer to provide all the conveniences of home. The apartment also has an espresso machine and an ipod/iphone docking station.

The Rockwell complex was inspired by the early 1900s architecture of Manhattan, and is surrounded by delightful sidewalk restaurants, bars, art galleries and quaint boutique shops. The complex has a stunning seven story interior atrium and luxurious fittings throughout. It also boasts a gym and an indoor, heated pool.

De Waterkant is the trendiest neighbourhood in Cape Town and one of the most exclusive. The apartment enjoys an enviable location in the heart of the city without actually being in the CBD (which virtually closes down on weekends). From the apartment, you can easily walk to most major attractions of Cape Town. The CBD is just a couple of blocks, The V&A Waterfront (shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops and Robben Island) is only minutes away, and there's an excellent supermarket across the road.

The CTICC (Convention Centre) is nearby. You can easily walk to the new Cape Town Stadium and Cape Quarter’s lively restaurant and café scene is just one block away.

If you have a car, the apartment has an assigned, underground secure car parking space with lift access into the building. Security is of the highest standard at the Rockwell with 24hr security.

This privately owned apartment is managed by a high-end corporate agency who only deal with luxury rentals. They will meet all guests on arrival at The Rockwell and do all possible to ensure your stay in Cape Town is amazing. They also provide a complimentary weekly housekeeping service.

This apartment has been oficially graded as 4-star by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.

I've bought and registered a mobile broadband USB stick (dongle) and 2 local Sim cards (1 normal and 1 microsim). You're welcome to use these while you're in Cape Town. I've done all the paperwork, so you'd just need to buy airtime and/or data (at any supermarket, petrol station etc). You'll be able to use these on your smartphone, laptop or tablet. I'll give you all the details so you can let family and friends know how to contact you and plan ahead.

Alternatively, internet can be accessed in the apartment through (paid) public wifi hotspots. If you're going elsewhere in South Africa, a cheaper and faster option would be to get a local sim card (less than $1) and load data onto that for your smartphone or unlocked dongle. I can help you work out what option is best for you, and let you know how to organise. It's a simple process.

Additionally, many of the cafes nearby offer free wifi with a purchase, and there are loads of internet cafes in town (yes they still exist here!) that charge R5/hr.

I'm more than happy to offer guests tips on the area and can recommend some amazing restaurants (that you'll need to book ahead for).

* Please note that this is a private residence in The Rockwell building and is not part of The Rockwell All Suites Hotel & Apartments. As a private resident you are invited to use the pool, gym and restaurant and bar, but bills cannot be charged to the room.

* Services like room service, a daily maid, bellboy and luggage storage are for hotel guests only.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Frankly speaking, we could not ask more from Jenny's apartment. Near to everything, with a very convenient supermarket opposite the building (a very important point in a car-oriented city as Cape Town is), all rent-a-car offices within walking distance, silent bedroom, nice balcony, and a very reasonable price!... really a five-star experience.



Besides, Jenny is very caring with her tennants, she does her best to inform you about things to do and see in CT, and a lovely person to talk to. I definitely recommend anyone to choose her as a "landlady" ;-)

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5
As others have stated , this is a well situated apartment. Everything one needs is within safe walking distance including a market and numerous restaurants. The property is well kept and clean. Having a washer and dryer is a great help. Relaxing out on the balcony after a day of sight seeing was great.

The apartment is just as described by the owner. Both the owner and her management company who met us were outstanding.

Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in May at 216 The Rockwell. From our very first inquiry, Jenny the owner was exceptionally helpful in providing us with information about the apartment, the location and the city. This one bedroom apartment in a modern hotel is very comfortable, well laid out, fully equipped and has an excellent bed. .We also enjoyed the covered balcony overlooking Napier Street. This apartment was absolutely excellent value for the money.

This apartment is well located in central Capetown within easy walking distance of restaurants, museums, the downtown area and the excellent V&A waterfront. There is a very good Spar supermarket right across the street.at the Cape Quarter and several restaurant choices there as well - we particularly enjoyed Cubana and the Andiamo restaurants. There were several evenings when we were just too tired to dine out and the Rockwell hotel provided us with very inexpensive room service meals.

The apartment is well managed and Jenny's management company was very quick to deal with any issues that we had.

Capetown is a beautiful city and we felt safe at all times. We have no hesitation in recommending Capetown and the southern Cape as a wonderful and interesting tourist destination.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to stay on my visit to Cape Town. A modern, clean and secure apartment in a lovely area. I LOVED the location, just minutes walk from the waterfront ( 5 minute walk), Cape Quarter (literally across the road) shops and restaurants. The owner Jenny, was also extremely helpful and available at any time to help me with questions. Will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cape Town.

My home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Jenny's apartment was my little home away from home during my month's stay in Cape Town. The apartment was perfect - it is stylish, inviting, and comfortable. The large balcony is perfect for relaxing and sipping your pinotage in the afternoon or enjoying your breakfast at the table in the morning.

The Rockwell is in an ideal location with great restaurants, an impressive grocery store, and quaint boutiques right around the apartment. The secure parking spot was especially nice, and the ambiance of The Rockwell (the common areas, gym, pool, bar) is very welcoming and top-notch.

Importantly, I have worked with quite a few owners, and Jenny is hands-down the most hospitable, helpful, and responsive person. She offers great recommendations for things to do and places to go, and she really does everything she can to ensure you enjoy your stay in Cape Town. I hope to return to Cape Town and this condo again soon!

Feeling at home in Cape Town

  • 4 of 5
This was a wonderful apartment at a great price. We felt very at home in this very modern, secure building. Great location from which to walk to the Waterfront. There are plenty of great restaurants and shops nearby. My husband and I stayed for five nights and felt it was the perfect jumping-off point to see all that Cape Town has to offer while being able to come home and relax. Very quiet building, we appreciated being able to do laundry and to have internet. The concierge in the lobby was also very helpful in guiding us to sites in the area as well as setting up a wine tasting tour. The owner was very responsive to any questions and has great suggestions of what to see and do in the area. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

Perfect gem in the heart of Cape Town

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Cape Town for 6 days, and this apartment was the perfect location in which to explore the city. It has everything we needed to start and end our day, as well as make meals (if we needed too. But to be honest we ate out since the food is so good in CT). It was a very nice, safe and secure apartment! Comfortable at the end of the day as well as sizable enough to get yourself situated. It was easy to arrange transportation from that area, and also there were many walkable areas in close vicinity, some of the best restaurants. As gay travelers we were also very close to a lot of great nightlife. Perfect location.

I would have to admit the best of all was the owners support and help in making sure the place worked well for us. I would highly recommend a stay here!
