Fantastic 1 bed apartment in awesome, central part of Cape Town, where the city meets the suburb of Gardens. The view is marvelous looking out onto Table Mountain (you can even see the cable cars going up and down!) from large lounge & bedroom windows or the sunny balcony. Walking distance to popular Long, Bree and Kloof St and easy access to many CT attractions! Truth, voted best coffee shop in the world 2 years running, is a 2 minute walk away. Great for couples, business or solo travelers.
The building, an old material processing factory, was converted into an apartment block in 2005. This part of town has a history of material and carpet shops.
You enter into the open plan living space, where the large windows provide a beautiful 180 degree view of Table Mountain and opens onto a sunny balcony. The well furnished lounge is a space in which to relax after long days of exploring the city or mountain. The kitchen dining space has all you need to prepare your own meals or french press coffee before you head out the door.
The one bedroom comfortably sleeps 2 people in a queen size bed. It has built in cupboard space and an en-suite bathroom with shower over bath.
A safe and secure, allocated basement parking bay in the building
Use of the swimming pool on the roof top.
Due to severe water restrictions and the current drought in Cape Town, use of the pool may be restricted
The apartment is on the 5th floor of a secure apartment block (lift access).
Parking is in the building basement and allows direct access into the building.
Guests will be given their own set of keys and have the apartment to themselves.

Other things to note
Cape Town (and South Africa) is in the depths of a severe drought. Please be cautious and conservative with water use.
Some small things that each individual can do to help:
-Keep Showers as short as possible.
-Turn off the taps when not actually using the water (ie while brushing teeth, shaving, soaping up, washing hair or dishes.)
-While heating up the water, collect excess in a bucket/bowl and use for cleaning.
-Make sure you put a full load into the washing machine and dishwasher before starting a wash cycle.
