Warrenby Court is a small apartment block with lovely neighbours. Please be friendly and respectful to them in the place that they call home.

Please ensure the main black gate is closed behind you whenever entering and leaving, and don't let in anyone whom you do not know.

The apartment has an alarm system that is linked to a security company. Please ensure you activate the alarm system whenever you leave the premises or go to sleep for the night.

Sound travels through this lovely old dame of a building, but don't let this stop you from having a good time. Just be sure to keep the noise levels at a reasonable level and call it quits by 10pm.

Smoking is not permitted inside the apartment, but you may smoke in the garden. Please be vigilant not to throw your cigarette butts into the garden - not only do they create a mess but they also pose a serious fire hazard. Please dispose of your butts responsibly wherever you are in Cape Town.

Cape Town City has imposed level 3 water restrictions as our water resources are limited. We ask all guests to please use water responsibly; for instance please switch off the tap whilst brushing teeth or washing up and limiting your shower time.

A wonderful apartment with all you need. Great location and absolutely wonderful hosts. Not a place for someone who wants to have long quiet morning as the upstairs neighbours do make some noise in the morning despite their best efforts to stay quiet. But I would absolutely come back!

We loved Simone's apartment, but just want to highlight to anyone with a baby or who's keen on a lie-in beyond 7am each morning that this might not be for you... An occupational hazard of a beautiful old gem such as this is the wooden floors upstairs, but alas the neighbours are fond of high heels indoors, and we're convinced their kids operate a bowling alley on the ceiling above! This wouldn't have bothered us had it not been for our 6 month old baby's nap schedule and early bedtime. Apart from the thundering above, we enjoyed this homely, beautifully decorated apartment. It's very well equipped and perfectly located for easy trips into the City and southern suburbs. We could easily find parking on the street and felt very safe walking around this lovely neighbourhood. The security features take some getting used to, though, and it is quite chilly in winter. For a couple, it's ideal

Response from Simone:
Thank you for your honest feedback Loren & John. We have addressed this with the upstairs neighbor so it is unlikely to happen again; this is what she says: Sorry guys! This was an out of the norm period and its not usually like that – school holidays so lots of kids and play dates and my parents down from joburg and mom wears special shoes for her back with a hard heel. And kitkat (the cat) driving us batty – he kept finding marbles and bits of lego that our son left round the house and was scooting them all over the place – it kept waking us up too so it must have driven your guests mad. Our son is back at school, parents gone back and we make sure we scour the house for marbles before we go to bed at night!

Central location - perfect for a work trip to the Cape. Neighbours were quite noisy, but perhaps we were just unlucky. Otherwise clean and well equipped.

Born in Joburg, I moved to Cape Town 11 years ago, drawn by the beautiful surroundings and pedestrian lifestyle. I love a gorgeous home, and spend much of my time designing and styling them for clients, friends and family. When I'm not doing that, I potter around my cosy abod…
