Deluxe Apartment in De Waterkant - 216 The Rockwell
This designer apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the fabulous large balcony that transforms the living space. Facing north, this private apartment on the 2nd floor of The Rockwell is protected from the Cape Town winds …
Jenny was an absolute pleasure to deal with! Her home is lovely! Such a great location, very modern and clean, beautiful patio, comfortable bed, awesome shower, and great speakers for the ipod dock! My husband and I stayed there for one week and were very satisfied! I would definitely recommend Jenny's place! :)
The apartment was exactly as advertised and provided a great place to stay. It was just a short walk to the V&A Waterfront and there are some great restaurants in the area.
I hesitated at first, because 216 was only available for the first 3 weeks of my 3-month work placement in Cape Town.
So, so glad I caved! The apartment is even nicer in person, the Rockwell exceeded expectations, located exactly where you want to be, and the "host"-oh my god, her insider info alone is worth the rental price.
I've done luxury hotel-living before, so while I knew I'd get peace-of-mind security and convenience, I prepared myself for those surprise missing or disappointing long-stay amenities (Ex: no iron, 5 hangers, scratchy sheets, low budget toiletries, etc.) Worry not, Jenny has thought of every detail. She had the place designer-decorated and no corners were cut. Usually vacay properties are what I call "designed-for-renters." 216 was obviously designed for a discerning owner.
You'll spend most of your time enjoying Cape Town, but it is nice to come home to a super comfortable bed, wake up to fresh espresso (definitely go to Origin for grounds!), and hang my clothes on 20-some wooden hangers (possibly only important to me.) The a/C is by far the most effective I've found in CT, the balcony overlooks quiet and charming Napier St (in my opinion, definitely the Rockwell's best side) and the cleaning staff is terrific and comes with an abundance of fluffy towels.
Jenny was my go-to guru for all things Cape Town months before I even arrived, she checked in via email during my stay, and if I emailed her a question a month from now, she'd write me back an enthusiastic, well thought out answer, probably an hour later. She's beyond awesome, I wish she had a rental in every city. Do not let her recommendations go to waste!
My only complaints: 1. I couldn't stay for longer. (Though Jenny was happy to help me as hunted for another perfect-fit place. Seriously.) 2. This experience has spoiled me for wherever I stay in the future.
The apartment was spotless and very well kitted out (including 3G internet access).
The decor was modern and fresh. I immediately felt at home. The apartment block has many amenities that I diodn't have time to use :-(
I will certainly be using this as my base for future trips to CPT.
This was a wonderful apartment at a great price. We felt very at home in this very modern, secure building. Great location from which to walk to the Waterfront. There are plenty of great restaurants and shops nearby. My husband and I stayed for five nights and felt it was the perfect jumping-off point to see all that Cape Town has to offer while being able to come home and relax. Very quiet building, we appreciated being able to do laundry and to have internet. The concierge in the lobby was also very helpful in guiding us to sites in the area as well as setting up a wine tasting tour. The owner was very responsive to any questions and has great suggestions of what to see and do in the area. We only wished we could have stayed longer!
We stayed in Cape Town for 6 days, and this apartment was the perfect location in which to explore the city. It has everything we needed to start and end our day, as well as make meals (if we needed too. But to be honest we ate out since the food is so good in CT). It was a very nice, safe and secure apartment! Comfortable at the end of the day as well as sizable enough to get yourself situated. It was easy to arrange transportation from that area, and also there were many walkable areas in close vicinity, some of the best restaurants. As gay travelers we were also very close to a lot of great nightlife. Perfect location.
I would have to admit the best of all was the owners support and help in making sure the place worked well for us. I would highly recommend a stay here!
