Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Cape Town Central, Western Cape
This fabulous apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the lovely light and views from the 5th floor.

Facing north, this private apartment in The Rockwell is protected from the Cape Town winds and is lovely and sunny in winter, yet cool and eternally liveable 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 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. You're above the roofline and there are lovely views across the De Waterkant area to the harbour and Cape Town Stadium.

There is a full kitchen and a washer and dryer...

Located on the 5th Floor of the Rockwell Apartments Unit 516 is a really great place to stay. Centrally located in the area called De Waterkant it is a 2 minute walk to a excellent shopping centre including supermarket, with numerous excellent restaurants and cafes 1-5 minute walk from the apartment. Adjoined to the complex are several restaurants, bars and...

Loved our stay here. We found the accommodation comfortable, secure and private. The proximity to the V&A Waterfront, restaurants, shops etc. was great. Secure parking an added benefit. The unit itself was fully equipped with all that was required in terms of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils - conducive to self catering if required. Very comfortable bed - very important....

I did a lot of research before deciding to rent this apartment. Its a beautiful well appointed flat in an excellent location and one would be hard pressed to do better. One top of all of that is dealing with Jenny, the host. Not only is she incredibly responsive and delightful, but honest. In the end, I was unable to...

About the neighbourhood
De Waterkant is one of the trendiest and most exclusive neighbourhoods in Cape Town. The apartment enjoys an enviable location in the heart of the city without actually being in the CBD (which virtually closes down on weekends). 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 Centre) is nearby. 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....

Getting around
I usually use Uber
It's approx R7-11/km

Taxi Services
Taxis are relatively cheap in Cape Town. About R10/km. Best to call one, and have them pick you up at the Prestwich Street entrance.
I suggest InterCab, Excite Taxis or Rikkis
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Cape Town International Airport: 19.0 km
Railway: Cape Town Train Station: 1.6 km
I'd suggest Uber, a taxi or a city shuttle service from the airport if you're not hiring a car.

Self-drive directions from the airport
Follow the N2 (direction Cape Town).
Keep following signs towards stadium, Waterfront and Sea Point.
Just after you pass the hospital, a big Virgin Active and the CTICC, get into the middle lane.
The road will become Buitengracht Street.
Stay on Buitengracht Street and go through the first 2 traffic lights.
At the third traffic light take a right onto Somerset Road
Then the second right turn onto Alfred Street.
The Rockwell is situated on the corner of Prestwich and Alfred Streets.
Activities nearby
Golf Course Is On Site Or Within 15 Mins Walk, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Nearest Beach: 8.0 km.
