It is ideal for family and friends who want a modern retreat that offers privacy and tranquillity, while remaining close to the pulse of the city centre.
Front and rear terraces offer magnificent mountain and marina outlooks, and are the perfect spots to enjoy a lazy breakfast while watching the sun rise over Table Bay, or relax with sundowners against a shimmering backdrop of twinkling city lights.
In addition to all the apartment’s mod cons, guests enjoy direct access to the marina’s private gym and heated swimming pool.
With the world-renowned V&A Waterfront on your doorstep, you can step on a craft to take you to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held or a yacht that will carry you to the white sands and turquoise waters of the beaches at Clifton. 703 Carradale is an exceptional base for your sojourn in Cape Town, with a position that is hard to beat.

“This 4 bedroom apartment is the perfect option for families travelling together. It offers the guests views of Table Mountain and the Marina Canal.”Monique Wolstenholme, Africa Villas Expert
Restfully monochromatic, 703 Carradale is chicly cosmopolitan, effortlessly blending modern creature comforts with thoughtful pieces of African art. Fold back the shutters to enjoy deep terraces with harbour and mountain vistas.
The apartment is positioned in the vibrant V&A Marina, which is within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront retail complex – home to 5-star restaurants such as Nobu Cape Town and Reuben’s, creator of next-level South African cuisine. The Waterfront is also a great springboard to ‘must-sees’ like Robben Island and helicopter flips over the striking Western Cape peninsula. It is a short drive to Table Mountain, the melting pot that is the city centre where African, Malay and European cultures have fed off each other for centuries, and the colourful De Waterkant district.
Whether you want to add a few days in Cape Town at the beginning or end – or both – of your trip to Africa, the V&A Marina is an unsurpassed location for exploring South Africa’s most historic and complex city, which nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, one of the official Seven Wonders of Nature.
This spacious apartment is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a stylish and comfortable city escape within walking distance of Cape Town’s main attractions.
Cape Town has two very distinct halves. Summer, which runs from October to March, dishes up long, sunny days with little rain – a recipe for days on the beach, mountain walks, outdoor lunches, strolls through the Company’s Gardens and romantic midnight swims. Winter, from April to September, wraps the city in a misty blanket, making for cosy days passed in wine cellars, galleries, museums and candlelit restaurants. Spring sees an explosion of rainbow-coloured flowers while autumn turns the vineyards into scarlet rubies tumbled up against the jagged mountains of Western Cape.
Secure, undercover parking with lift access is available for guests, as well as exclusive access to private gym and swimming pool facilities.
An open-plan, fully-equipped kitchen is modern and bright, with sleek black granite counter tops and wooden cupboards. Appliances include an oven and hob, washing machine, tumble-dryer and coffee machine, affording you convenience at your own pace.
Creamy tones, percale linen, under-floor heating and air conditioning make the main bedroom a peaceful place to recharge after a day’s adventure.
The three guest rooms are elegantly furnished with contemporary-chic décor. Each room has two single beds that can be converted into a double bed, convenient reading lamps and folding shutters that open up to embrace the beautiful views. One guest bedroom has a separate sitting room.
Three of the bedrooms – including the master bedroom - enjoy spacious en suite bathrooms with large showers, elegant vanities and heated towel rails. A guest bathroom (with a shower) adjacent to the living area doubles as the bathroom for the fourth bedroom.
The living area is furnished with plush sofas, chic scatter cushions and African artworks. Accents of glass, wood and stone mingle with rich textures in natural hues and large sliding doors open onto a private terrace with delightful city vistas.
Front and rear terraces connect the interior and exterior spaces through shuttered sliding doors. An 8-seater dining table on the front terrace overlooks the Marina and harbour and comfortable sun loungers are the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
