DE WATERKANT VILLA in the heart of Cape Town
A self catering villa on Jarvis Street in the heart of the city with a plunge pool, 2 sun-decks, alfresco dining area, sea views and an unrestricted view of Table mountain.
It's in the ideal place for you to experience Cape Town & De Waterkant Village. This house is in a chic, fashionable and historic part of the city where some of the properties date back centuries and have been sensitively restored so that none of the magic is lost.
At night the area is a magnet for Cape Town's trendy set. People spill onto the pavement at Cubana's (attracting the young & hip), Manhattan's, Amsterdam bar & the Cape Quarter for great food. For the night owls there are bars and clubs within walking distance. The Cape Town Gay scene is close by as are the beaches of Camps Bay.
During the day there's lots to do: Cape Quarter, Table Mountain, Robben Island & the winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, shopping at the V&A; waterfront or spend a day at the beach!
Green Point stadium is a 7 minute walk & Newlands cricket ground and Kirstenbosh gardens a 15 min drive.
There is so much to do you'll have to return. For this visit here are some ideas:
Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was in prison, Table Mountain, Cape Point (most southerly point of the African continent), Hermanus for whale watching and Penguins on Boulders beach. For cocktails go and watch the sun set on Camps Bay (the African Riviera) and also experience great seafood. For the Winelands (eat alfresco at Simonsig surrounded by stunning scenery).
Visit a Township to get the story on Cape Town or shop at the V&A; Waterfront or Canal Walk. Other activities include Helicopter rides, Shark Diving, Golfing, and Surfing.
In the Evening why not dine at some of the world's best restaurants; we recommend
Cuvee at Simonsig wine estate
Tokara's — in the Winelands,
Bukhara's — a stunning Indian restaurant
Il Leone for fine Italian food
Cafe Manhattan for burgers.
Beluga’s for sushi and steaks
And we are within walking distance of bars and clubs and the Cape Town Gay and Lesbian district
