Ideal for Two
This apartment totally fulfilled all our expectations. It is so central that for the first couple of days we did not rent a car, but simply explored the city on foot.
The equipment and supplies were topnotch, with a plentiful supply of towels and linen. Lots of little touches which made it feel like home from home, such as sellotape and scissors for wrapping gifts (though we had actually brought our own!).
During our two week stay the apartment was serviced and we would come home to a sparkling clean place.
Water pressure was great and lots of hot water always.
There are plenty of restaurants around in Kloof and Long Streets. On a sunny day the tearoom in the Gardens opposite makes a very pleasant place for lunch. The hotel next door is OK for lunch, but avoid for dinner - overpriced and very poor quality food.
For everyday supplies the Spar in Kloof Street, walking distance away, is well stocked and does a good range of takeaways - and sells stamps too!
We rented a car from a firm in Bloem Street - a five minute walk away off Long Street - and parked overnight in the street outside without any problems, or else in the garage of the hotel on the corner if we wanted a late lie-in (the parking marshals start work at 8 am).
Having stayed in self-catering holiday accommodation around the world over the past 50 years, this must rate among the top ten per cent for location, cleanliness and equipment.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Thanks, it's very encouraging to see that the effort is appreciated. We will do our best to keep it that way.
