Check in was a bit hit and miss but they did take our luggage round to the apartment and then came back and collect us. The apartment was adequate for our requirements two bedrooms two bathrooms however the second bedroom only had a bath and it would have been so simple to add a shower unit over the bath. We... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Very nicely appointed apartment. Situated alongside the canal. Quiet location with plenty of security. Allocated parking space. WiFi free at reception and available in the apartment for a fee. Towels changed daily. Short walk to V&A waterfront where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Would stay here again

In theory, ideal - an apartment, city living, near the water in the midst of Cape Town. In practice, far from ideal - we found our place to be a rather dark space, with an unpleasant smell, and not as ideally located as we had wanted. And I'm afraid we have to join others on this site in reporting that... More

Apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. View was over the canal so very quiet. Parking was also easy though you do have to check in first and then take care to security gate but all very secure. Location near the V&A Waterfront was just great as easy walking distance. Loads of shops and restaurants to choose from.... More

This was a Condo and I was advised by my agent that one never knew who's condo you would be renting and what the condition would be. Ours was great, everything worked well and it was very comfortable. Ideally located and strict security. Wifi free but only in the lobby

We arrived in Cape Town after an amazing 28 hour train trip, excited to finish off our trip that was beyond our expectations. The building complex and location were amazing. Brand new, well maintained, security. The first thing that was a little annoying was walking with ALL of our luggage through security, over a bridge, around the complex, up a... More

We stayed at the Waterfront Village as the first stop on our honeymoon at the start of October 2016. Although we didn't rate the centre of Cape Town itself the waterfront was lovely and the apartments pleasant and well located. Unfortunately, the day before we left, a large sum of money (more than £300) was stolen from our room when... More

We had a huge apartment with a terrace overlooking the canal that runs through the village.We didn't self cater but there was plenty of equipment there if we had wanted to. It was serviced every day and was very clean and tidy. The security to get in and out of the apartments is very thorough which is an added bonus.... More

The apartments are in a gated complex with underground parking. Felt very safe and nice walk to the restaurants at the waterfront. The apartment itself was large and nice to have the washing machine. A few niggles; you have to pay for wifi but need a code. We asked reception for this but they never got back to us. The... More
