I travel extensively throughout the year and therefore my apartment stands empty most of the time. It's stylish and modern, fully furnished with beautiful city & harbor views. It has a rooftop pool deck, gym and entertainment area with 360 degree views of the Mother City & Table Mountain. It's within walking distance of the Castle of Good Hope, Parliament and other major attractions, not to mention grocery stores etc. It's fully equipped with free WiFi, air conditioning, 42' plasma TV with satellite channels as well as a clothes washing machine & drying rack. For those aspiring chefs I have a fully equipped kitchen (knives, forks, spoons, bowls plates, cups, glasses, pots, pans, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, 4-burner hob & oven etc.). Also features a sleeper couch should you need to accommodate 1-2 extra people (perfect for kids). 24 hour manned security with access control and a secure parking bay for 1 vehicle. I know that when I travel, internet is not a luxury, it's a necessity - that's why my WiFi internet is 100% free – no extra or hidden fees.
My goal is to make sure that you have an awesome experience and can focus on the important stuff, like your vacation - not worry about accommodation! I look forward to chatting with you!
PLEASE NOTE (updated Jan 1, 2014) - View is partially obstructed however there is no longer any construction (or construction noise). There will not be anymore construction in the future.
Syke is a very nice landlord. Very nice and always prompt with answers. The hand-over of keys through an agency works in a frictionless way and lasts only few seconds. The building is very central in the middle of the city. Directly at the building the multi-storey car park is connected. This is also guarded. The reception bordered 24 hours is very friendly and helps with finding the apartment and explaining the security|safety shortly in the house. The state|condition of the apartment is in order. Beautiful furniture in good repair. The internet connection worked impeccably. Also trifles as hair electric hairdryer, irons and many things more is available. Unfortunately negatively one must carry that the beautiful view to the harbor is not more possible through a new building directly in front of the lens. We were in February there. The very warm weather heated up the apartment on 30 degrees. The air conditioning system does not create it unfortunately more than to chill 3 degrees. As a whole we would recommend the apartment, however, onto everyone
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Secure building. Convenient parking. 24 hour check-in/out was appreciated, but a bit of a pain since it is at a different location.
Overall location was fine as there are two nice coffee shops, a grocery store, and some restaurants very near. Good highway access if driving.
Our biggest problem is that the A/C couldn't cool the apartment below 28C so we had to sleep naked with the fan blowing on us to get some rest. It was very uncomfortable and this alone made us wish we were at a hotel. We read previous reviews that noted the A/C as an issue, but we were assured it would not be a problem - unfortunately, it definitely was - the unit simply can't cool the apartment.
View from the window due to the construction is a real eye-sore. The roof top pool was very cloudy. This may be fine, but we are used to clear pools in Canada where you can see the bottom.
The Wifi regularly disconnected and we were without wifi at all during our last two days.
The wind shook the windows thoroughly and we couldn't have them open during the day as the sun blasted in and it got far too hot, so it was often quite dark in the apartment.
Skye was a prompt communicator, and property management cleaned the apartment and provided a bottle of water, fresh towels, and other amenities which was great.
Building hallways smell of smoke and often marijuana as well.
The kitchen was a bit tricky to cook in as well as there was only one frying pan and it appeared to have been mauled by a tiger.
Overall was fine, and I'm sure you would have an O.k. time here, but it was a below average stay for us due to the A/C and wifi situations.
Very nice location, very close to everything and great view from the gym!
Compact apartment, no noise problems. WiFi was as fast as any place in SA. Sat TV had movies and sport channels no music though.
Location, on the edge of the CBD. A few shops and place to eat close by and about 10mins walk from Long Street. Easy access to the towns motorways.
Skye was very good at communications.
Downside, the AC unit needs replacing. It's a portable unit with no drain so it only run for a couple of hours, it is also very noisy and under capacity for the room size. We lived without it but in few weeks at the height of summer it will be a different story as the apartment gets direct sunlight all day.
The great view has also being partially destroyed by the construction work next door. It looks like the construction company has gone bust so it won't get any worse.
Overall I would recommend the place if he gets the AC replaced we were lucky as the weather was mostly cool but if it had been hot we would have been very uncomfortable.
L'appartement est très bien situé. Tout est à proximité, l'équipement de l'appartement est moderne. Une femme de ménage passe tout les lundi pour nettoyer l'appartement. De plus c'est très sécurisé grâce au clé pour entrer dans l'immeuble puis pour pénétrer dans chaque étage, des gardiens sont aussi présent à l'accueil. Magnifique vue du toit, et salle de musculation complète.
Had a great, secure stay in amazing Cape Town.
We stayed at Skye's apartment for five nights and found it to be centrally located and within walking distance of many things of interest to first time travelers to Cape Town. It is also close to a number of car rental companies, so hiring a car is easy. The apartment is very clean and safe, and has everything you need, including the full kitchen, a washing machine and free WiFi. The construction seemed to have halted while we were there, so noise was not an issue. There are restaurants and cafes nearby. Grab a copy of the hop-on/hop-off bus map for a list of things to do, most of which are close to the apartment, including the walking tour of Bo-Kaap, which was interesting with great views of Table Mountain and the waterfront. Communication with Skye was great, with fast, helpful replies. His apartment is definitely a great place to stay in Cape Town.
I stayed in Cape Town for a little over a week and had the time of my life! The best way I can describe it is "a dream come true!" Skye was amazing at keeping in touch with me every time I messaged him replying almost instantly to every query. The accommodations are exactly as listed and are very central to every point of interest and right next to the key drop off location. I had a very pleasant stay and will recommend this location to everyone! When I come back, I am definitely staying here again! Thank you !
I had a great stay at this apartment building. Though I never met Skye in person, he was incredibly responsive over email. The apartment is nicely furnished and maintained very neat and clean. I would definitely recommend this place to other travelers.
