Our comfortable and central apartment has easy access to all of the best places in the city. The apartment is quite small inside (60 sq m) but has two large balconies that are our summer living spaces (40 sq m and 20 sq m). The bigger balcony has large awnings for shade and the smaller on, an umbrella. Winter days can be lovely (May - September). Temperatures seldom go below 15 degrees in the daytime in winter - and night times, anything less than 10 degrees is very rare. Summers are hot and dry.
We are in a secure block with great mountain views. Our outdoor space is set up with a barbeque (in South Africa - a "braai". The top balcony has a table and chairs and umbrella and is perfect for sundowners.
We are on the top of four floors with lift access. We have 24 hour secure access to the block - you only have to check in with security on your arrival. After that you will have your own set of keys.
We are a water scarce area. However, since last year, water management has been much more effective than previously. We hope many visitors who cancelled because of fears about shortages in 2017, will visit in 2018.
Our neighbourhood, edge of De Waterkant and Green Point, is in walking distance of the V&A Waterfront which is a big tourist attraction - working harbour, office blocks, homes and plenty of entertainment (movies, markets, a big wheel). It is also the start point for the Cape Town and Peninsula Red Bus Tours - which are a very good way to get yourself orientated in Cape Town. We are also in walking distance of two outstanding bakeries (Jason's and Giovanni's). Giovanni is more than just a bakery, he has an outstanding range of prepared deli hot food, coffees, cheeses, cold meats and Italian groceries. Our SPAR takes care of the rest!
Walking distance to everything you need. Uber is also very cheap. We are also interested in including a car in the deal. We are on the MyCiti bus route - for summer, that takes you to all the beaches on the Atlantic seaboard - the glamourous ones - Clifton beaches 1 - 4, Camps Bay, Llandudno, Hout Bay. However, the water is very cold, and while I love swimming, I definitely don't do much of it in these waters.
