Overview

Photos and Description of this De Waterkant holiday apartment

Lovely 1- Bedroom 4th Floor Apartment With Large Balcony + Table Mt Views

This lovely apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the prime location and views towards Table Mountain from the 4th floor.

This private apartment in The Rockwell is lovely and sunny in winter, yet cool and eternally livable in the summer. With a Balinese daybed and a coffee table outside, this apartment is all about making the most of Cape Town and the outdoors.

The air-conditioned interior in shades of black, white and green is cool and crisp and beautifully complements the Rockwell’s 1900s New York inspired architecture. The clean design makes full use of the interior space and flows easily on to the balcony area.

There is a full kitchen and a washer and dryer to provide all the conveniences of home. The apartment also has an espresso machine and an iPod/iPhone/iPad/Samsung phone/tablet dual docking station.

The Rockwell complex was inspired by the early 1900s architecture of Manhattan, and is surrounded by delightful sidewalk restaurants, bars, art galleries and quaint boutique shops. The complex has a stunning seven story interior atrium and luxurious fittings throughout. It also boasts a gym and an indoor, heated pool.

De Waterkant is the trendiest neighborhood in Cape Town and one of the most exclusive. The apartment enjoys an enviable location in the heart of the city without actually being in the CBD. From the apartment, you can easily walk to most major attractions of Cape Town. The CBD is just a couple of blocks, The V&A Waterfront (shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops and Robben Island) is only minutes away, and there's an excellent supermarket across the road.

The CTICC (Convention Center) is nearby and there's very easy access to the highway. You can easily walk to the new Cape Town Stadium and Cape Quarter’s lively restaurant and café scene is just one block away.

If you have a car, the apartment has an assigned, underground secure car parking space with lift access into the building. Security is of the highest standard at the Rockwell with 24hr security and a 24hr staffed front desk.

I've bought and registered a Vodacom 3G WiFi modem that will support up to 5 devices. You're welcome to use this while you're in Cape Town. I'll provide the first 2Gb data/month. If you need more, then it's simple to top it up online or in a store.

Additionally, many of the cafes nearby offer free WiFi with a purchase, and there are loads of internet cafes in town (yes they still exist here!) that charge R5/hr.

The apartment is privately owned and is managed by a high-end corporate agency who only deal with luxury rentals. They will meet all guests on arrival at The Rockwell and do all possible to ensure your stay in Cape Town is amazing. They also provide a complimentary weekly housekeeping service.

I'm more than happy to offer guests tips on the area and can recommend some amazing restaurants (that you'll need to book ahead for).

* Please note that this is a private apartment in The Rockwell building and is not part of the excellent Rockwell All Suites Hotel & Apartments. As a private resident you are invited to use the pool, gym and restaurant and bar, but bills cannot be charged to the room.

About Jenny Andersen

Hiya

I'm an Australian girl who had been coming to South Africa since 1994 for many, many trips. Finally decided that I might like to spend some more time here. I figured a year maybe. But that was more than 6 yrs ago :)

When in CT, I like to take advantage of the awesome food and wine, and the outdoorsy lifestyle which is so like my hometown (Sydney). The beaches are beautiful (but the water is way too cold for me), and there are some stunning drives nearby.

Other than that, I love to grab my tent and pop off and explore Southern Africa. (Namibia is gorgeous, Kgalagadi is my favourite area and Zambia is on the bucket list)

I love it when people come to South Africa and Cape Town (especially for the 1st time) and are 'converted'. They're a little dubious before their trip... but then they always get slammed by the "Africa bug" and are hooked.

Jenny Andersen purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jenny Andersen chose Cape Town

I purposely chose De Waterkant (and especially The Rockwell) as it has such an awesome location. As a foreign girl on my own, I was a little anxious at first. But there are so many great cafes, shops, restaurants, bars etc within a safe walking distance - that this was perfect. And the Spar (supermarket) across the road is fantastic.

I've had an apartment in this building since 2009, but bought this one (and 1 other) in 2013. I didn't even consider anywhere else!

I had a great time doing them up, playing with the décor and getting them right for my guests... with things that I would like in my home.

What makes this apartment unique

Promise the apartments are really great. And you just can't beat the location.

I use a property management company who are extremely professional. So even if I'm not in town, you'll have someone 'on call' 24/7.

I have a little 'scribble doc' with loads of the things that I like to do in and around CT. I usually just send it to friends coming over - but I'll happily share it with you. It's just a mix of touristy and local things that I like to do. It might give you a few ideas of things to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A well-appointed modern apartment in a perfect location if you want to be a short walk from De Waterkant and CBD. From the balcony you can see the Table Mountain – great spot for a glass of wine before heading to the town.

Jenny was a perfect host. I have not met her in person but she was amazingly efficient in communicating by email and provided all the information about the apartment.

Great location ! Close to great restaurants, and shopping if you need it!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very neat and clean when we arrived. All staff in the building are very friendly and helpful as well. Walking distance from Gold restaurant which I would highly recommend, the food was awesome. But if you're looking to make your own food there is a grocery store across the street that has a great selection of foods. Location was great since we were in the city and were walking distance from most places we needed to get to.

Jenny's apartment

  • 5 of 5

Jenny's apartment was exactly as presented in the pictures. Very beautiful. I did not meet her but the property management firm she used was helpful and available 24 hrs a day. The location was great as it is in a hotel with good restaurants adjacent. I felt very safe which was important as I was traveling alone. I would definitely stay at her apartment again.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was really a find! Jenny was exceptional in her prompt responses and information. I don't think I've had anyone on this site be so helpful and responsive. Her place is also quite wonderful. Last time we stayed in the V&A waterfront. While that's a nice area, it seems antiseptic to me and you don't really get the vibe of the city. De Waterkant is quite different. It's centrally located. We walked everywhere. And walking at night is safe as well. The apartment is in a great building with lots of security. And there are some incredible restaurants just behind in a small pedestrian street. It has a great balcony with views of Table Mountain. The amenities are top notch. And if you need anything, there is a grocery store just across the street. We plan to return to Cape Town and we most assuredly will rent from Jenny again. Thanks Jenny!

Review of the Rockwell Apt 410

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful apartment, great location. Easy to walk just about anywhere in the city. Incredible views of table mountain. Jenny was very efficient and helpful with any of our needs. The only suggestion would be to update and get more tableware and glassware.

Owner's Response: Hi there Thanks so much for taking the time to review. It's most appreciated. I'll look into the tableware and glassware that you mentioned. Everything is quite new in the apartment and there should be 4 of everything. (white wine, red wine, champagne, tumblers, dinner and side plates etc). We'll do an updated inventory and make sure it's all there still, and replace anything that's gone missing. Thanks again for taking the time, and for making a constructive suggestion. Cheers Jenny

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time wee have stayed at the Rockwell in a condo owned by Jenny Andersen. The building is extremely well located and well run. It is a safe place from which to explore the Waterkant, V&A waterfront and downtown Cape Town. Taxi rides provide a reasonable option to explore further afield and we loved taking the train to Kalk Bay.

While we previously stayed in the second floor unit, we enjoyed the business of the fourth floor unit. There is a spectacular view of Table Mountain and watching the goings on at the petrol station was endlessly fascinating.

In general, we would recommend these condos to anyone and, God willing, we'll be back.
