Where should a single, 30 something girl stay for 3 weeks?

Hi! I'm traveling alone and I'll be staying in Cape Town for 3 weeks. I'm trying to find a nice, safe, economical option. I would like to be close to Camps Bay, Waterfront or Tamberskloof. My budget is about R5,600 for the total trip, or about R265 a day.

Does anyone have any suggestions/websites besides Gumtree?

THANKS!!

Your budget is very, very tight. Cape Town has the most expensive accommodation in South Africa, and you are choosing some of the most expensive and touristy areas/suburbs.

These are some of the backpackers. capeintern.com/accommodation/… and http://www.longstreetbackpackers.co.za/

With dorm rooms from R120-R180, I am not sure how you are going to be able to eat and go to any tourist attractions on that budget.

Thanks! I'm staying for 3 weeks and I can afford about R6600 for 22 days...is that totally crazy to try to find something for that rate? It's basically R9000 a month for rent for an apt...

Short term rentals aren't particularly common as the vast majority of rentals are not furnished.

Gumtree is your best bet for finding a place to share for while.

Try

http://www.theoceana.com/

Their published daily rate is more than your budget but they may give you a reduced rate for your extended stay.
