De Waterkant Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Lovely 1-Bedroom 4th Floor Apartment with Large Balcony + Table Mt Views
This lovely apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the prime location and views towards Table Mountain from the 4th floor.
This private apartment in The Rockwell is lovely and sunny in winter, yet cool and eternally liveable in the summer. With a Balinese daybed and a coffee table outside, this apartment is all about making the most of Cape Town and the outdoors.
The air-conditioned interior in shades of black, white and green is cool and crisp and beautifully complements the Rockwell’s 1900s New York inspired architecture. The clean design makes full use of the interior space and flows easily on to the balcony area.
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/iPad/Samsung phone/tablet dual 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. 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 and there's very easy access to the highway. 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 and a 24hr staffed front desk.
I've bought and registered a Vodacom 3G WiFi modem that will support up to 5 devices. You're welcome to use this while you're in Cape Town. I've done all the paperwork, so you'd just need to buy additional data (online, or at any Vodacom store, supermarket, petrol station etc).
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.
The apartment is privately owned and 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.
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 apartment in The Rockwell building and is not part of the excellent 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 service, bellboy and luggage storage are for hotel guests only.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Recently we stayed 8 days at 410 Rockwell and were very happy with everything about the apartment...the location was excellent, close to a great supermarket and walking distance to the waterfront and the downtown. (gas station beside the bldg. was a little noisy a couple of nights but nothing that kept us awake). Building security was excellent and we always felt very safe.Underground parking was vg. Good restaurants are adjacent to the bldg. for evenings when you don't want to go far.
Unit 410 was exactly as presented...very clean (cleaned again mid-week) and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Bed was comfortable as was LR furniture.
Jenny, our host, was wonderful to deal with and responded quickly when we had a medical issue that we needed assistance with.
We would definitely recommend that you stay at 410 Rockwell for your trip to Cape Town
