Location, location, location!! Centrally located and close to the V&A Waterfront, this luxury loft, with sweeping views of Table Mountain is the perfect choice for a city break. Most of the Mother City's attractions are within walking distance. Trendy restaurants, bars, and shops are within a stones throw. Bree St, famed for it's culinary delights is just a few mins walk, as is Long Street. Fast WIFI, Air Con, TV, washer/dryer, outdoor swimming pool, secure parking, 24hr security/reception desk.
I have tried to think of everything that will make your stay as convenient and 'home from home' as possible. All you should really need are your clothes!
The kitchen is large, fully equipped, and loved by people who cook – it has everything you need. Tea and delicious freshly ground coffee is complimentary, as is a bottle of wine to welcome your arrival.
The open plan living/kitchen/dining area opens up onto a spacious private balcony with outdoor seating. The luxurious bathroom has both bath and shower, with free toiletries and plenty of soft fluffy towels.
Stairs lead you up to the mezzanine level loft bedroom with extra length, top of the range, pocket spring Serta kingsize bed. Quality linen, separate 3/4 down duvets and luxury pillows ensure that you will have a good nights rest. Plenty of cupboard space for your clothes.
It really is hard to beat the location, the block is nestled between the uber cool De Waterkant Village, the City Centre and the Bo Kaap. Loads of top rated restaurants are within a stone's throw, the super cool Bree Street, Heritage Square, and the Cape Quarter are 5 mins walk. Long Street and the heart of the Bo Kaap 10 mins walk, V&A Waterfront 15 mins walk. Company Gardens, the museums and CTICC 10 mins walk. To get to the beaches or the Cable car, you can hop on a MyCiti bus, or take a 10 min taxi ride.
I have put together a comprehensive guide, (like a mini Lonely Planet!!) to help you get the most out of your stay with hints and tips of what to do/where to eat etc. I can also put you in touch with an excellent private tour guide if you wish to do some tours (the Winelands and Cape Peninsula via Cape Point a must!!) With super easy access to the main highways, you will be at the airport in 20 mins, and 35 mins you will be in the heart of the Winelands.

About Claire Parrish
I am originally from Newcastle in the North East of England. After living and working in the corporate world in London for 6 years, i decided i needed a break. I enrolled on a volunteer program which enabled me to work with lions in Zimbabwe, and then at a health clinic in Zambia. It was in Zambia that i knew my life had to change, it seemed to me, that in Africa you could be whatever you wanted to be! I was allowed to help deliver babies, was a lab technician, amongst other things, and also in the afternoons i taught kids English. At the end of the volunteering, i joined an overland tour which ended in Cape Town. I fell instantly in love with the city and decided i would live there. I had no clue what i would do when i moved, but things fell into place instantly and i started modelling and acting in TV commercials. I have now lived in Cape Town 7 years, and can truly call it my home. I spend any of my free time hiking on the mountain, i love living so close to, and having access to such beautiful nature.
Claire Parrish purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Claire Parrish chose De Waterkant
When i first arrived in Cape Town i stumbled upon De Waterkant. I loved the quaint cobbled streets and felt like it was a secret place i had uncovered. The original Cape Quarter was just the piazza, and of course since then it has been extended and grown into a delightful hip and trendy area loved and known by all.
What makes this Apartment unique
I actually looked at many properties in the area, but my favourite block was Soho on Strand. It seemed quiet and tranquil considering it was in the middle of the city and with the huge glass windows in every foyer, the views were stunning. The minute i walked into B2 my breath was taken away by the view before me. I loved the double volume loft style, and the apartment just had that special feel. I made an offer immediately and never went back again until the day the keys were handed over. I was that sure this was the one!

Lovely apartment in nice area
Clean and comfortable loft apartment in easy walking distance or short Uber/taxi ride from many attractions. Clair has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable.
Great location. Home included all the small details promised that makes a stay enjoyable.
Super comfortable bed & bedding. Abundance of plush towels. Ultra clean. Incredible views of Table Mountain and Bokamp Neighborhood. Wi-Fi was strong. Safe and easy access to unit through building security. Lots of great restaurants and pubs within 5 minute walk. Shower water pressure a tad week, but considering the water shortage in Cape Town this is a small sacrifice. Complimentary wine will make you feel instantly welcome. Communication with owner easy with rapid response. She is lovely and clearly cares about her property and those who stay there. You will enjoy!
Perfect location, pleasant apartment
The apartment is compact, but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The area was perfect for us; we walked to the waterfront, to museums and points of interest. Colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood is the view from the apt. Great coffee Shop (Truth Coffee) is half a block away. Owner has provided a full notebook of good restaurants and things to do.
Centrally located to Waterfront, de Waterkant, Camps Bay and downtown. Very comfortable and secure the staff working the front were great. Well fitted with great owner suggestions on things to do. Uber was great in Cape Town.
Sophisticated and centrally located
This is a beautiful loft-style apartment in a great location for exploring the city. Stunning view of Tabletop Mountain from the 2-story glass windows. A clever window blind system that allowed light in while giving privacy for the loft bedroom. A few blocks walk to Cape Quarter shopping center with restaurants, grocery and stores. A few blocks walk to the City Center. 24-hour desk in the lobby and a security entrance to the building. We used Uber all over the city and never waited more than 5 minutes for a pickup. There's a really great Mexican restaurant right across the street: Don Julian's. Claire made sure we had all the information we could possibly need for our 5 day stay. We would choose to stay here again on a return trip.
The apartment borders De Waterkant Village, the Bo Kaap and the City Centre. Each within spitting distance, and each with their own unique characters. Spend your day exploring De Waterkant village, this hip and trendy neighbourhood oozes with style and sophistication. Explore the cobbled streets, and marvel at the Dutch style colourful houses with their pretty flower boxes and tree lined pavements. Browse through the famous Cape Quarter with its abundance of boutique shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, and European style cafes. Take a peak in the design shops, Cape Town wasn’t named the 2014 design capital for nothing! Alternatively, wander over to Heritage Square, the latest new spot for all things cool and trendy, not to mention the revival of Bree Street with its galleries, café’s and excellent restaurants that will have the foodies among you drooling! This is where it is happening with the locals! Don’t miss the 1st Thursday of the month, where food trucks gather in Heritage Square and the shops and galleries throw their doors open until late, blessing you with free wine and nibbles. This has become quite the social event in Cape Town. Directly opposite the apartment, you can walk up Rose Street and into the heart of the Bo Kaap. Step back in time, and enjoy wandering around this historical Cape Malay area with its beautiful coloured houses. Don’t forget to be finished in time to walk up to Signal Hill for the firing of the noon gun! The fan walk that was constructed for the FIFA World Cup runs parallel to the apartment block, and is the place to be if there are any street festivals such as Gay Pride, and the Cape Town festival. They all head this way, so you are in the perfect spot to join the festivities.
