About the Owner

I moved to Cape Town from Belgium in 1986. I always loved the beauty of this country and became a tour guide to share this passion with visitors. This was unfortunately too demanding on my family life (I have 3 sons, a husband and 2 very active dogs) so I thought the next best thing was to buy property in a location that is so beautiful and rent this out to tourists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A spacious and very well equipped apartment, ideal for singles or couples. There is a sofa bed in the living area so a group of 3 or 4 could be accommodated if sharing a bathroom is acceptable. For those worried about safety & security, the whole estate is virtually inpenetratable without the supplied access passes. There is a lovely pool (plenty of sun loungers) and gym available for guest use on payment of a very modest supplement (SaR 150 at time of writing).

The location is excellent. If you want the tourist trap that is the V & A Waterfront then it's just a short walk away. The more edgy (and far more interesting) parts of the city are easily walkable in the opposite direction.

Dominique, the owner, is lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough for a stay in this wonderful city.

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an ideal position. It's a five minute walk to the V&A waterfront and 15 to 20 minutes to places like Bo-Kaap. It feels very safe. It has beautiful views over the canal from a huge terrace. The apartment is a really good size and with the sliding doors to the terrace pushed right back you have a fantastic space. It's really well equipped and cared for and Dominique is so friendly and welcoming you feel at home straight away. We are planning to stay there again next year. Would recommend to anybody. Loved it.

It is very tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Dominique is an absolute darling. She was very helpful and friendly.

perfect holiday destination in South-Africa !

  • 5 of 5

It was my first visit to South-Africa, after this experience it will not be the last one. I was staying at a flat in Altmore at the Waterfront Marina and it was an unique experience. It was beautifully situated, in a safe area, and with a very nice view on the Cape Grace hotel. I got a warm welcome when i arrived, and i enjoyed my stay very well. The flat was spacious and nicely furnished ! Just perfection ! Dominique, you will see me as a frequent guest at your flat !

It has top security and is 1 of the places you can relax and don't need a car. if you want to explore cape town you can just walk out the apartment and take the hop on hop off bus.
