The Penthouse on Burg is a true labor of love featured by Condé Nast's prestigious House & Garden Magazine (URL HIDDEN) This property has been converted over the past year from an industrial space to a thoughtfully designed living space. The penthouse covers 4 floors and sits on the top floor (11th) of an office building in the center of Cape Town. The elevator doors open directly into the apartment into the kitchen, dining area, living area with fireplace, tiled rooftop balcony . The lower floor is made up of the two bedrooms with double glazed windows, the TV den and spare bed and the shower room. The next floor up is the roof-deck with table and another covered roof deck up with sofa, projector wall and hammock.
The kitchen is jet black and the light bulbs are mesmerizing. Each piece of artwork, fabric and accessory has been visibly hand chosen. Comfort and beauty must co-exist. The beds are comfortably and beautifully firm. The linen is pure high thread count cotton. The bathrobes are cozy and the toiletries are divine.
A large flat screen tv is the main feature of the tv den downstairs, and yes tv is connected to Netflix :) The wifi is at 10mbs and uncapped.

Other things to note
Cape Town in the winter can be cold. The fireplace is a wonderful source of heat and both bedrooms have heaters. There are plenty of blankets in the apartment. Please keep this in mind when packing for your trip.
This apartment is based in a high rise building right in the centre of the city. Double glazed windows have been installed and are very effective in noise reduction. They provide our guests with maximum comfort while resting in the heart of the city.
Please note that the third bed is the day bed that is seen in the tv den. A quick change of the bedding turns this day bed into a cozy double bed comfortable for two.
Lastly, the really cool elevator that comes up to directly to the penthouse also comes with it's own sounds. You will notice the sound of the elevator mechanism come to life when operating. The bedrooms are sheltered at a good distance away from elevator sounds.
- Absolutely no smoking inside. Please use ashtrays on outside areas and not the flower pots.
- Please keep noise kept to an absolute minimum after 10pm
- No more than 10 visitors at any one time in the Penthouse
- If you are more than 2 guests, please let us know so that we can ensure the space comfortable for all of you
- Please be mindful to switch off lights, heater or air conditioning when not in use
- Please water the plants every 2-3 days (there is a tab on the roofdeck). They suffer in the heat and you will help keep them alive :)
