Famed for some of the best restaurants in the city, self-catering accommodation at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town is one of the best ways to enjoy the area, whether you are planning a business trip or a holiday.
With accommodation that ranges from luxury villas to stunning apartment blocks, more suited to individual travellers and couples, there is something to suit everyone. Many of the superb holiday rentals in this part of the city are centred around the marina where the hustle and bustle of boats coming in and out is softened by the old charm and nineteenth-century architecture.
The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, as the name suggests, dates back to the high Victorian era. Nonetheless, many of the modern apartment blocks that surround the marina are completely up to date in terms of their architecture and facilities.
Typically, penthouse apartments will offer great views over the harbour and older parts of the waterfront, but also be full of the latest equipment, such as gym facilities, satellite television connections and home theatre stereos.
Although the V&A Waterfront area of the city is extremely popular with holidaymakers, it is also a great base for business people who are making a trip to Cape Town. This is because it is just a few minutes’ walk from one of South Africa’s most frequented and best-known conference venues.
If travelling to attend a conference, then renting a one bedroom apartment in the neighbourhood can often make for a much more relaxing end to the day than staying in one of Cape Town’s hotels. Because the rental apartments come with a choice of two, three or more bedrooms as well, it is perfectly possible to find a suitable place to stay by the water’s edge for the whole family.
Indeed, many members of the international business community are able to combine their workload in Cape Town with a family holiday and frequently extend their stays to enjoy the best that the city has to offer once their work is done.
Another consideration, when selecting self-catering accommodation in the V&A Waterfront, is where to eat. As mentioned, the area is packed full of restaurants so self-catering certainly does not mean that you will end up cooking – unless you want to, that is.
In this part of Cape Town, the choice of cuisine is eclectic and you can enjoy the very best of European menus, southern African cuisine and even Asian food if you want. Many of the best restaurants are within a stone’s throw of each other and some of the best self-catering accommodation on offer, so there is no need to book taxi cabs when dining out.
In addition, many of the luxury villas and apartments in the area are also close to some of the best shopping facilities in South Africa. Cape Town has some of the largest department stores in the country, but the V&A Waterfront is also blessed with many more independent stores including jewellers and boutique clothing retailers.
Wherever you intend to stay in the area, the extensive choice of V&A Waterfront self-catering accommodation means that you will find something ideally located for your purposes.
