I am a true South African born and raised in the Free State and moved to Cape Town in 2000.

Hannes Beukes purchased this apartment in 2013

I bought this apartment with my partner Francois in 2012. At the time this was a real 'ugly duckling', we made it our my mission to turn it into a 'swan'. Today we are really very proud to host our friends, and family.

We all love 'Kassie' (short for Cascades) and I am sure you will do to!

This little flat has it all, views, a outside balcony, parking, modern interior, air-condition, security and above all brilliant location.

Nicely located, compact, nicely decorated, and awesome hosts had a blast using this location to visit the Cape Town area . Very convenient to the V&A, local restaurants, market, and public transportation. Thanks, Hannes

Lives up to the description, a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is both accurately described and identical to the site photos.
With good building security (night guard on reception desk all night) and secure underground parking we felt very safe, both in the apartment and in the neighbourhood.
The building is in a quiet street but so close to bus transport, the V@A docks and the city centre. The property is clean and well maintained and contained everything we needed (washing machine, iron, pots and pans etc.) for our very comfortable 2 week stay. The high view from the apartment to the city and bay is a delight. There is much attention to detail in the fit-out of the apartment and clear descriptions on how to use TV, appliances etc. We also appreciated the food items, biscuits and chocolates provided. In fact it was the best equipped self-catering apartment in which we have stayed and certainly represents good value for money.
No phone, but WIFI internet is reliable and inexpensive. I purchased 3MB and stiil had some credit remaining at the end of our 2 weeks stay. We received a warm welcome from Hannes and Francois who also took time to describe attractions of the immediate area, important for me as it was my first visit to Cape Town.
A good restaurant, "Manos", is at the corner of the street and a Woolworths supermarket next door open until 9pm It had all we needed during our stay and it was just a 2 minute walk from the apartment.
I can highly recommend the apartment and will most certainly stay there again on a future visit as it ticked all the right boxes for us.

From the N1 / N2 highway, keep on driving straight into town until you reach Somerset Road, (the third traffic light on Buitengracht street). Turn right into Somerset Road. Keep traveling for 1.1km until you reach Vesperdene Road on your left, (Vesperdend road is after Wessels road, keep on the left lane and when you pass Wessels road you can start indicating to turn left at Vesperdene) just before ‘Mano’s’ restaurant. Turn left into Vesperdene Road. You will see 'Cascades' on your right. It is the only high rising red brick building on this dead end road and is about 150m from the corner where the MANOS Restaurant is. At reception you can press 805* on the intercom system to call me or you can sign in with security and they will show you how to find unit 805 Cascades. Go to the lift and press 8 to go to the top floor, when you exit the lift turn left and look for unit 805; the first unit when on your right hand side when you walk down the passage.

Please note that the intercom system is inked to my mobile phone. By pressing 805* on the intercom I will receive a telephone call and I will be able to talk to you even if I am not at the apartment.
