The space

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.

In addition to the toaster, kettle and microwave, we have included in the kitchen a dishwasher, a Nespresso machine, Jamie Oliver knives and a Nutribullet for your convenience.

A secure and convenient parking space is available for you to use across the road in the Deck parking lot.

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.

We had an amazing time at Nicholas's apartment. Great communication with Corina who met us for check-in a little earlier than expected. The apartment is beautiful and exactly as pictured. The location is excellent- plenty of great restaurants and the market is next door! Close to the grocery store as well. We felt very safe- There was a door man most days/nights who was very friendly! Short black car Uber drive to the V&A (about $6-7 US dollar each ride). The elevator worked perfectly the entire time we were there. We also took advantage of the parking garage which was perfect. The decks are beautiful- perfect setting for a sundowner and view of Lions Head. We can't wait to come back! We highly recommend staying at Nicholas's place. Thank you again Corina for making everything so easy!

Great place to host guests, directly next to bars and clubs in CBD, although the area can be a bit loud and/or busy this place is high enough that it is removed from some of the action.

The Penthouse absolutely fit our needs. My wife, Jan, and I spent 8 nights there and loved every minute of it. 3 floors, 2 verandas, total privacy and security (private elevator right to the living room). In fact there was so much space that we really on used two of the floors. Right in the city center so it's within a block or two of any shopping we required. Corina was really great to work with, checked us in with all the necessary information. The view from the balconies and bedrooms couldn't have been better. We would recommend this for any couple or two couples seeking a center of town experience. I believe there were about 6 wifi hotspots in the 3 floors and never had a problem getting a connection, very useful. Top of the line appliances. My wife really liked having a washer and dryer after spending 15 days in the Botswana bush. The central location makes it very easy to find walking tours (half block away at Green Market Square). Thank you Corina and Nicholas for a wonderful experience
