  • "Village life in a great City"


    Stayed 6 days in De Waterkant with my grown family of 4. This is a great location, very convenient for most attractions and roads. There are numerous beautiful shops, boutiques, cafe's restaurants etc. This area, with its colourful, interesting architecture and steep, narrow streets has a very special feel.

  • "Quirky suburb with a large variety of niche restaurants"


    De Waterkant village is a must-see for a traveller visiting Cape Town. This area is best seen on foot - take a stroll along the painted houses or pop into a cafe' for a delightful meal. There is a vast array of coffee shops each offering their own unique blends. There are also many restaurants that focus on healthy eating for vegans and veggies.

  • "Excellent stay in the heart of Cape Town"


    We stayed at one of the apartments offered by De Waterkant Village for nearly one week. We were greeted with a beautifully furnished 2 bedroom apartment with amazing views of Cape Town. We quite literally felt we had won the lottery!
