Luxury De Waterkant Vacation Rentals

Rent the De Waterkant holiday home of your dreams with your vision and our expertise.

Renting Luxury self-catering accommodation in Bakoven

De Waterkant sits next to Bo Kaap, both suburbs are very similar except you could say  De Waterkant is a modernised version of Bo Kaap. This is a trendy area that has maintained and even accentuated, the colourful, bright semi-detached houses – restoring them into fashionable cottages that, together with the cobbled, tree-lined streets and spectacular views, bring to mind New York’s Greenwich Village and London’s Soho. The De Waterkant Village – now as many as 80 properties within walking distance of restaurants, the Cape Quarter shopping centre and local entertainment – is regarded as a resort-type experience, although this does the charming, character-full village an injustice. The bright, 18th-century cottages are given over to guest houses offering authentic ‘local’ living and nestling on the lower slopes of Signal Hill overlooking Table Bay.

The Village of De Waterkant is essentially a business area during the day, where people live, work, lunch and shop, but by night it’s alive with energy and offers some of the city’s best restaurants, wine bars and delis. A walk along Wale Street towards the Bo-Kaap (‘above town’), brings you to a neighbourhood that is said to hold the highest number of buildings dating back to before the year 1840, in South Africa, that miraculously managed to survive apartheid and the fate of other similar areas, like district six. From De Waterkant you can walk to the city centre; the V&A Waterfront and the Table Mountain cableway are a quick drive away; and the fashionable Atlantic beaches and trendy Atlantic Seaboard suburbs are close at hand to explore.

Last year I called Cape Town Vacationer the first time on recommendation from a friend. Celeste sounded very busy, but now I know why. She called me back within the hour as she promised and had all the info at hand.I really get the impression that this agent is a fussy vacationer as well, she gave all the necessary detail without the blah..blah. I really don't want to know who slept in the bed before me. If I don't have to deal with it, don't tell me. I appreciated that she knew the area and the crowds that frequent it.No fuzz or complications on any booking I've made thus far. Quick and easy, just the way I like it.

There was a last minute change in our booking as the landlord got a long term tenant. So celeste got us another better property , upgraded with no added cost. The property was great, only issue is they had checked in someone else into our apartment just before us, without checking ID, so there was some confusion but it was sorted. she is very good within your budget
