We stayed at 4 Bayview Terrace where one gets 360 degree views of the V&A Waterfront, the harbour, CBD, table mountain and Signal hill above you off their rooftop deck. From your bedrooms you can either look onto the harbour or table mountain! What a choice!!! The accommodation itself is very comfortable and clean. The beds and linen are awesome....

We stayed in 75 Loader street as 2 couples and couldn'tve been more impressed. We booked online well in advance and from the start, professionalism and ease was the order of the day. A friendly warm welcome on the day of arrival. The cottage was perfect! It was spacious, light, airy, clean, safe, comfortable and well-appointed, furnished with a gorgeous...

This unit is managed by De Waterkant Cottages: http://www.yourcapetown.co.za/accommodation/cape-town/2-bayview-terrace.html We stayed in this beautiful, three-bedroom home for 10 nights with two other couples and loved it. We'd return in a heartbeat. Great location with clean design overlooking the harbor on one side with Table Mountain views on the other. (Keep in mind it is on the hillside so there's a...

6 of us stayed here for a wonderful week in Cape Town in September 2013. The accommodation was clean and well presented. Beautiful large bedrooms and excellent communal areas. Only a 10 minute walk to the Waterfront and in a nice little area with cafes, bars, a small shopping mall and a convenience store. Great base for exploring.

Stayed at 23 Loader Street for four nights, & would definitely stay there again. It was the perfect little house for a couple, with a well-equipped kitchen, a stylishly furnished dining room/living room, a small washer/dryer, satellite TV & a very nice, comfortable bedroom. (Note that this is a one-bedroom house meant for two adults, not a family.) The rooftop...

Stayed at 75 Loader. Parking is VERY limited, construction all around the property. Never felt unsafe, but wouldn't venture out after dark. The property seemed under managed. Things were broken, light switch, hot water in one bath, washing machine. If all you need is a place to sleep, not a bad spot, but if you want holiday feel best to...

Thank you for your feedback. De Waterkant is unique in having the feel of a small village yet it is located right in the CBD. Although we do still benefit from free street parking and most guests do find parking right outside their properties, at times, like any other city, parking during business hours can be limited, however there is...
