“Amazing time at pembroke 403”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Great apartment in beautiful area with a wonderful view and very nice owners. We really enjoyed our stay in Capetown, a city full of adventures. The apartment is beautiful, very comfortable and well equipped. Eilis, the owner of the apartment, gave us really good tips on things to do and restaurants. She helped us a lot and was always available. We can absolutely recommend staying in this location.

It was a pleasure to have you come and stay at Pembroke for the Christmas holiday period. You were wonderful guests and enjoyed many conversations with you and your Dad before and during your stay. You very clearly enjoyed Cape Town very much as evidenced by your decision to remain for a longer period to study and gain life experience in this wonderfully vibrant city with a fascinating cultural history.
Thank you for your kind words and sending every good wish to you, your Mum & Dad and your brother for 2018.

“Beautiful apartment, great location,wonderful service”
Reviewed 27 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We could not have been happier with this rental. Highly recommend. Not only is apartment expansive, beautiful, clean, and loaded with high-end equipment, but it is well-located in the middle of the V&A Waterfront Marina (next to the fanciest hotels) with gorgeous balconies and views. Exactly as advertised. Plus, Eilis was so helpful in arranging everything for our brief stay, from pick-up at the airport, recommendations for restaurants and things to do, to a custom-made tour of the wine country with personal references and introductions to the winemakers. We were two couples sharing the apartment and barely knew when the other couple was around! Thank you so much for sharing your home and knowledge with us.

Greetings Fredric and thank you so much for your kind words. It was a real pleasure to connect with you from the outset. We know the Cape quite well at this stage having been coming & going for almost 20 yrs and just love coming here. We really like our guests to get some insights into the real Cape and not just the typical tourist trails. Because we import many of the Cape's most exciting wines into Ireland, we have built wonderful friendships will all of our winemakers who are always happy to welcome our guests.

I'm so glad you enjoyed staying at Pembroke 403. We know how very special it is and it's like a dream, even to ourselves, each time we arrive and see the views that appear as we walk in. We constantly strive to have everything as perfect as possible and always anxious to hear of any shortcomings or any ideas for improvement no matter how small.

It would be lovely to meet you one day, either back in Cape Town or in the Galway in the west of Ireland, the place we lucky to call our home.

Warm regards to you both.

“Incredible setting”
Reviewed 18 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Cape Town Waterfront is one of the world's best. The view from Pembroke 403 reminds you off Monte Carlo as you look over the millionaire's yachts across the harbour out to sea.

Thank you for this - the setting overlooking the Marina with all the amazing yachts and the entire Waterfront with all its activity is indeed truly spectacular. And if you get bored with that view, there is also Table Mountain from the southern balcony.

We hope to have you back at Pembroke 403 sometime in 2017.

We've been several times to Cape Town already but this time we wanted to stay some days close to the Waterfront and did choose the Pembroke 403.
Well, staying at this place is without doubt a unique experience. The Apartment is very large, has 2 bedrooms with own bathroom and the best - 2 terraces. One overlooking the V&A Waterfront and the other one with a beautiful view to table mountain.
The whole area is highly secured and you get your own parking space for your car in the inhouse garage.
The waterfront can easily be reached within a few minutes by walking.
This apartment is the perfect place to explore Cape Town and it's surroundings.

After a month stress of organising my wedding we came to Cape town for our honeymoon. We enjoyed each and every second in the luxurious apartment with free Wi-Fi and spoiled with 2 balconies with different views. We also loved the remote control controlling the TV, radio ,lights etc . It was indeed a holiday to remember .

“The Very Best Place to stay in Cape Town!”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

This was our second visit to Pembroke 403 and it really is the very best place to stay, for many reasons. The location is just perfect. The apartment is right beside the One and Only Hotel and looks across at the Cape Grace. Yet it has better views than either hotel, as it has two large balconies, one facing the waterfront and the other Table Mountain. Sun all day if you want it, or shade too if that’s what you prefer. Both balconies have tables for 6 and sun loungers for lazy afternoons. It’s five to seven minutes walk from the centre of the Waterfront and about three minutes walk from the new Water Shed which showcases some of the best art and design of South Africa. The Quarter Deck Gym and pool is about 100 metres from the apartment. It has state of the art equipment. Where else could you exercise while looking out at such beautiful views ? It has underground car parking and is extremely safe. Without doubt, this is the very best location!

The apartment is very spacious. The lovely photographs on the website don’t show how large this apartment is. It is also very luxurious with beautiful art and the very best of furnishings, Linens from Italy, lots of white fluffy towels, the most comfortable beds and two large baths, 3 Bang and Olufsen televisions! The kitchen is amazing. Every utensil you could possibly imagine is available, from the Nespresso machine to juicers, four slice toasters, beautiful glassware…… I could go on and on…. Fibee takes care of the apartment and she is just wonderful. She is so proud of her work and everything in the apartment is maintained to the highest standard. The apartment was absolutely spotless. Other services such as in house catering etc. are all available at the end of the phone, or can be organised in advance. Ozzie who manages the apartment now was always at the end of the phone and he could not have been more helpful.

Eilis and Seamus, the apartment owners are just so helpful. They take real interest in your visit and your needs. They have guided us towards the best places to eat, visit and are experts in the wine lands and indeed in the very best wines ( which are available in the apartment too ).

Staying in Pembroke 403 made our visit to Cape Town relaxing, rewarding and very special. We can’t wait to go back. Many thanks to Eilis, Seamus, Fibee, Ozzie and all of the team.

Thank you so much Colette for such a wonderful and carefully written review.

It was a real pleasure to have you and Pat back to Pembroke 403 and you clearly enjoyed it very much.

You really seem to have captured all of the elements that we so love ourselves and that give us great pleasure to share with our discerning guests.

We are very proud of our team on the ground here and are delighted that Fibby, trained so well by Mirriam, now looks after Pembroke 403 on a fully exclusive basis with the ever smiling Ozzie heading up our guest relations team.

You put a lot of hard work into planning your trip and it really paid off for you.

What more can I say - you have said it all and were our dream guests.

We will be delighted to welcome you back to Pembroke in the not too distant future.

With warm regards
