About Claire Parrish
I am originally from Newcastle in the North East of England. After living and working in the corporate world in London for 6 years, i decided i needed a break. I enrolled on a volunteer program which enabled me to work with lions in Zimbabwe, and then at a health clinic in Zambia. It was in Zambia that i knew my life had to change, it seemed to me, that in Africa you could be whatever you wanted to be! I was allowed to help deliver babies, was a lab technician, amongst other things, and also in the afternoons i taught kids English. At the end of the volunteering, i joined an overland tour which ended in Cape Town. I fell instantly in love with the city and decided i would live there. I had no clue what i would do when i moved, but things fell into place instantly and i started modelling and acting in TV commercials. I have now lived in Cape Town 7 years, and can truly call it my home. I spend any of my free time hiking on the mountain, i love living so close to, and having access to such beautiful nature.
Claire Parrish purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Claire Parrish chose De Waterkant
When i first arrived in Cape Town i stumbled upon De Waterkant. I loved the quaint cobbled streets and felt like it was a secret place i had uncovered. The original Cape Quarter was just the piazza, and of course since then it has been extended and grown into a delightful hip and trendy area loved and known by all.
What makes this Apartment unique
I actually looked at many properties in the area, but my favourite block was Soho on Strand. It seemed quiet and tranquil considering it was in the middle of the city and with the huge glass windows in every foyer, the views were stunning. I loved the double volume loft style, and the apartment just had that special feel.

Enjoyed our stay
Claire’s apartment is very nice, clean and comfortable. There is a view of Table Mountain but unfortunately the view is dominated mostly by the large building across the street. The upstairs bedroom is very comfortable with a king size bed and beautiful linens but the lack of an upstairs bathroom can prove difficult if you have to get up during the night. The location is very good considering we walked to the Victoria and Albert dock and a Pick N Pay grocery store was across the street. We enjoyed our morning coffee at a Seattle Coffee shop on the street below us. Claire was very easy to correspond with and left us a lovely and welcoming bottle of wine. All in all a great place to spend a few days in Cape Town. We would highly recommend.
Wonderful property in a great location. Secured parking, laundry, and great view of the mountains.
Beautiful property, great location!
We enjoyed the location and property. Claire did a great job providing suggestions and making us comfortable!
Great Capetown condo
This was a great place for us to spend a few days upon our arrival to SA. The front desk staff were extremely helpful in getting us settled, parking the car, and familiarizing us with the neighborhood. We really appreciated the warm welcome!
We enjoyed the neighborhood restaurants and walking distance grocery.
Everything was as listed, very secure building, had a problem with the door lock, but security was there to help
Perfect location, easy communication and safe
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The location was perfect and the view from the balcony is amazing. The property is clean and has everything you need during your stay. It is also feels safe as there is security and it has a secure car park.
Claire was so easy to communicate with as she was quick to respond to messages. She offered so many useful tips and suggestions about where to eat, drink and what to do. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning a stay in Cape Town.
The apartment borders De Waterkant Village, the Bo Kaap and the City Centre. Each within spitting distance, and each with their own unique characters. Spend your day exploring De Waterkant village, this hip and trendy neighbourhood oozes with style and sophistication. Explore the cobbled streets, and marvel at the Dutch style colourful houses with their pretty flower boxes and tree lined pavements. Browse through the famous Cape Quarter with its abundance of boutique shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, and European style cafes. Take a peak in the design shops, Cape Town wasn’t named the 2014 design capital for nothing!
Alternatively, wander over to Heritage Square, the latest new spot for all things cool and trendy, not to mention the revival of Bree Street with its galleries, café’s and excellent restaurants that will have the foodies among you drooling! This is where it is happening with the locals! Don’t miss the 1st Thursday of the month, where food trucks gather in Heritage Square and the shops and galleries throw their doors open until late, blessing you with free wine and nibbles. This has become quite the social event in Cape Town.
Directly opposite the apartment, you can walk up Rose Street and into the heart of the Bo Kaap. Step back in time, and enjoy wandering around this historical Cape Malay area with its beautiful coloured houses. Don’t forget to be finished in time to walk up to Signal Hill for the firing of the noon gun!
The fan walk that was constructed for the FIFA World Cup runs parallel to the apartment block, and is the place to be if there are any street festivals such as Gay Pride, and the Cape Town festival. They all head this way, so you are in the perfect spot to join the festivities.
