The neighborhood is very nice and our hosts very friendly and welcoming. The views from the roof terrace are fantastic, really breathtaking. We had a wonderful stay, very nice weather: no wind in the Table Mountain!!!

Fantastic Location! Such a comfortable apartment. The rooftop balcony has an amazing view of Cape Town – 360. Highly recommended to everyone. Henk was a wonderful host & helpful at anytime. And a Nespresso machine!

The Loader Street apartment is amazing! The photos don't do the apartment justice; it's spacious, clean, modern, and perfect for two friends or two couples. The neighborhood is extremely charming and very safe. A girlfriend and I spent four days at the Loader Street apartment and were completely comfortable walking to nearby restaurants and bars at night.


Guido and Henk were wonderful hosts and very easy to work with. They kindly arranged to have a car pick us up from the airport, made dinner reservations at a popular restaurant, and were available if we had any questions throughout our stay. Because of our wonderful experience, my friend and I hope to return to the Loader Street apartment next year with our husbands! I am confident that anyone who stays here will thoroughly enjoy themselves!

We had such a lovely time at the Loader St. Apartment - it's very central, in a safe area and a fantastic place to stay. The amenities are fantastic - especially the amazing roof terrace with unrivalled views. Really enjoyed seeing Table Mountain at all stages of the day, and got some sun as well. Thanks Guido & Henk!

Perfectly well located in a lovely surrounding with an incredible retro charm. Guido & Henk make you feel at home and the washing/drying machine is a must when you travel with young children.


If you feel lazy, just climb up to the roof terrace and enjoy the view. No need to exhaust yourself by climbing up Table Mountain… J

Guido & Henk are great hosts -friendly & helpful. We enjoyed our one night stay and were sorry that we could not spend more time. The apartment is very clean and neat.

The roofdeck is really great - was just a bit chilly to really enjoy it. Location good - shops walking distance as well as restaurants. Good location for exploring Cape Town. We will be back to De Waterkant when visiting Cape Town.

Thank you so much for the lovely stay. The Loader Street Apartment is a lovely, well furnished apartment, it has a great feel and the neighborhood is adorable. Well adorned with shops and cafés.

There was some issue with the pipes spitting black gravel out at you. And the water/sink in the second bedroom had a quite unpleasant smell. But even with these teething problems the place is a real pleasure. Henk and Guido were fabulous hosts. It was a great experience and I would stay here again in a minute.

Comment Purple House: Meriah and Steven were among our first guests at the apartment. the problem with the pipes was caused by the geyser, which has been replaced immediately after their departure. The smell of the wash basin was apparently caused because it was newly installed and not yet flushed. We will keep monitoring it.

Recommended place:Piano Bar Jazz Club

Besonderes Highlight: die nicht erwartete Komfort-Ausstattung, wie Kaffeemaschine, Fön.

Absolut begeistert hat uns die Dachterrasse mit dem Ausblick auf den Tafelberg.

Zimmereinrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich. Der Service und Hilfsbereitschaft der Vermieter war sehr gut. Uns wurde immer mit allen Anliegen bestens geholfen und auch Probleme wie am Flughafen verlorenes Gepäck wurden gemanaged!
