We can't wait to welcome you! Cape Town is such an amazing place, and we invested in our little home there just over a decade ago. Having searched long and hard for the perfect apartment in the perfect location, we've never doubted that we hit the jackpot from just about every conceivable angle. No other part of Cape Town gave us the same huge range of possibilities: accessibility on foot of shops, cafés, parks, restaurants and museums in both the most stylish quarter of town, Kloof Street (5 minutes leisurely walk away) and the bustling hub of city culture of Long Street and the traditional African Green Market (a further 10 mins on foot), the historical Malay quarter (10 mins walk), a short and easy bus or taxi ride to the cable car station for Table Mountain (5 mins by car) and an equ...We can't wait to welcome you! Cape Town is such an amazing place, and we invested in our little home there just over a decade ago. Having searched long and hard for the perfect apartment in the perfect location, we've never doubted that we hit the jackpot from just about every conceivable angle. No other part of Cape Town gave us the same huge range of possibilities: accessibility on foot of shops, cafés, parks, restaurants and museums in both the most stylish quarter of town, Kloof Street (5 minutes leisurely walk away) and the bustling hub of city culture of Long Street and the traditional African Green Market (a further 10 mins on foot), the historical Malay quarter (10 mins walk), a short and easy bus or taxi ride to the cable car station for Table Mountain (5 mins by car) and an equally undaunting ride to Cape Town's paradise beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton (10 mins by car). The beautiful Waterfront, overflowing with culture, shops, eateries, pubs and traditional African live music at all hours is also a short drive away (15 mins by car). If you want a perfect taste of where we are, search online for the video for Jonas Blue's song 'Perfect Strangers' which was all shot in and around our part of Cape Town. Our place works on all levels: abandon the wheels for your Cape Town break and take to the town on foot - for this alone, a week's break would not be enough!! Alternatively hire a car or taxi at the very favourable local rates, and explore a little further. Whatever you want to do - chill on a beach, explore history and meet real Capetonians, take the children to the parks and the legendary 'Gardens' area where they can feed the fearless squirrels, sample the stunning array of restaurants and Cape wines, do some upmarket shopping, explore the local markets for a bargain or take in some fantastic local live music and dance the night away - this is the perfect place for you. The gated residence, Bagamoya, includes secure parking if you were to rent a car, although you can easily manage the city on foot. Bagamoya is a modern residence comprising 12 apartments. Ours is on the 2nd floor with a bright and airy lounge/diner with practically 180 degree views day and night of Table Mountain. Two spacious bedrooms, a bright, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower and bath, and a stunning balcony with views to die for, not to mention satellite television and free WIFI internet access – you have all you need here to make the most of a brilliant city. Despite our proximity to a very exciting part of town, you'd never guess it once you're at home - Tamboerskloof is a calm, family-oriented part of town, with a lovely playground and park just across the road from the apartments, ideal for a picnic (we recommend a picnic there accompanied by Robertson's Cape Champagne)! We try to rent by the week from Saturday to Saturday, although there is almost always room for negotiation on this depending on the time of year and availability. Bedrooms: Bedroom 1 with double bed, bedside tables, built in wardrobes, views of table Mountain and town. Bedroom 2 with double bed, bedside tables, built in wardrobes, views of table mountain and town. Bathrooms: Bathroom with bath, shower, wc and sink, and under sink cupboard. Kitchen: Electric cooker and hob, fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, fully equipped with utensils, kettle, toaster, etc. Living Rooms: Lounge-diner with door to balcony. 4 easy chairs, table and chairs to seat 6, side unit, shelves with books and CDs. HIFI/CD/cassette, TV with satellite (receiving African/English channels including international BBC channels/Sky news), DVD, video. Cleaning/towels/linen/maid service: Towels and linen are included, as is a clean, although we do ask people to leave the apartment as they found it to cut down on cleaning costs and in turn keep the rental prices as low as possible. Amenities/Facilities provided: hob/stove,oven,fridge/freezer,microwave,washing machine,tumble dryer,iron/ironing board,satellite tv,tv,telephone,room fans,cot,high chair, WIFI internet Accessibility: The apartment is up 4 flights of steps, 5 steps in each flight. Outside: Balcony table and chairs. Coast/Beach: 10 minutes drive to Camps Bay and Clifton beaches, 20 minutes drive to Hout Bay. Golf: Garden Route Golf Passport.8 Buiten Street.Cape Town 8008.South Africa. Travel: Cape Town International airport 30-40 minutes drive. Distances: 2 mins to local convenience store.5 mins walk to Kloof Street.20 mins walk to Long Street/Green Market (city centre). Nearest cashpoint: 5 minutes walk to Kloof Street - Lifestyle on Kloof centre, which also contains book shops, cafés and a Woolworths supermarket (very similar to Marks and Spencer food supermarkets in the UK in style and price). Just nearby is a Checkers supermarket, more akin to Tesco/Sainsburys. Booking notes: 50% of rental requested upfront at point of booking, remaining 50% of rental 6 weeks prior to stay, along with a security/damages deposit which is fully refundable after the stay. We are an Anglo-Irish family who have been living between La Rochelle, France, London and Cape Town since 2003. We run holiday accommodation here, in a super town for tourists and those seeking to get away from it all alike. In addition, we are musicians and sing, write and play together in a band called The Portraits (google us!) Year purchased: 2001 Why the owner chose an apartment in this location: The Bagamoya apartment was purchased as a holiday home by my mother Diana in 2001. It was a place for her retirement, to allow her to return to the city in which she had spent her childhood, and to which she had never returned until the fall of apartheid in 1994. We are now running it for her at times when we are not lucky enough to be in Cape Town ourselves - we try and get down at least once a year. Unique benefits of the property: Benefits for us are primarily location, space, light, views - it is truly a place to relax and soak up the atmosphere outside, even when you are just on the balcony relaxing with a beautifully chilled glass of Cape White wine, listening to the music (often quite literally) of Africa breezing through the trees towards you. The apartment contains 2 bedrooms (both containing double beds) and an additional sofa-bed in the lounge for a further two sleepers, so it can comfortably sleep three couples.More

Interaction with guests
Lovely Balti and Gavin manage our rentals and are always nearby for help and advice for our guests. We do request that our guests leave the property as they found it, tidy and clean, which helps us to cut down on professional cleaning costs and in turn allows us to keep our rental prices low. However, if you are in true holiday mode and want to avoid the hassle of worrying that everything is left perfectly at the end of your stay, you can request cleaning is carried out by our team for the charge of £70 / € 80 / ZAR 1000 in advance by bank transfer or Paypal or in cash on arrival. Please let us know as soon as possible if you decide you would like to take advantage of this.
