Great location, lovely area with some good cafes, bars and restaurants. Easily accessible for other main areas of Cape Town. Really friendly staff. The house itself was amazing. Probably too big just for the 2 of us, would be great with a group.

A group of 6 co-workers stayed in 39 Dixon for about 10 days for a conference. This large house was perfect for our group, only 2 people needed to share a room and everyone else had their own room (5 bedroom home). We used the kitchen for breakfast and a few dinners but didn't do much cooking. It was also...

We were introduced to De Waterkant Cottages when we were invited to stay by our friends who are regular customers. We loved the area, were amazed by the cottage we stayed in and loved to be able to walk to the Waterfront. I am going to recommend De Waterkant Cottages to any of my friends that visit Cape Town.

I can't speak highly enough of staying with De Waterkant Cottages. Each cottage is self contained, and cleaned every e cottages themselves are LOVELY - the amenities vary but most have some or all of roof terrace, pool, spa, great view, small garden oasis. And within easy and safe walk to great tourist attractions - the V&A waterfront, Greenmarket square,...

We stayed at 29 Jarvis Street, a two bedroom house, for three nights. It's perfect for two couples with two bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a large living/kitchen area. The kitchen is pretty well equipped (could may be do with a bit more cutlery and glasses for 4 people), even more so that there is a daily cleaning...

2 friends and I stayed in the 75 Loader St cottage for a week last November. We were very happy with the place. It's a self-service apartment but a cleaning lady still tidied up the cottage everyday. The kitchen was complete and the bedrooms were very comfy. We loved the deck on top of the cottage and had we had...

We stayed at the appartment on Loader 88 Street. It was a very comfortable apartment, modernly designed, with 3 bedrooms, nice leaving room and a very nice kitchen with all needed equipment. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was cleaned on a daily basis.

We stayed in a very nicely appointed three-bedroom house just up the street from the office. We had a gorgeous view of Table Mountain and the city from the house and its outdoor areas. The beds were comfortable and the cleaning staff kept everything immaculate. However, we had booked the house because it had a hot tub on the terrace,...
