Style & Decor

Masculine monochromes merge harmoniously in this sophisticated apartment. Elegant but practical, the understated decor is the perfect foil to the glorious views. Easy stripes, silvers, woods and greys combine easily in an apartment where you can put your feet up after a day of seeing the sights.

Neighbourhood

Sunny sidewalk cafés, hip boutiques and excellent restaurants make pink-friendly De Waterkant one of the most sought-after addresses in Cape Town. Close to the city centre, this historical area lies on the slopes of Signal Hill and recalls Notting Hill, Greenwich Village or even New Orleans. Colourful semi-detached houses dating back centuries and cobbled streets make for myriad photo opportunities, while the busy bars and eclectic clubs come alive at night. Join the locals for a lazy brunch in the sun at one of the many corner cafés or take a stroll through the tiny streets for some retail therapy at the unusual boutiques or galleries.

The Cape Quarter Lifestyle Village has a well-stocked grocery store for those who want to pick up something to make dinner at home. Being on the foothill of Signal Hill means that you will hear the iconic ‘boom’ of the historic Noon Gun, which is a canon fired at 12pm in a naval tradition that dates back to 1806.

Suitability

13a De Smidt is ideal for small families, groups of friends or couples who want to experience the Cape Town urban lifestyle in elegant but efficient style. 

Best time to visit

Four distinct seasons make Cape Town a pleasure to visit at any time of the year, depending on your preference for weather. The November to March summer season sees hot sunny days and sultry nights that are perfect for beach picnics. The December - January high season heralds throngs to both the beaches and restaurants.  

March and April see cooler, less windy days before the winter rains of May to August, where cold and rainy days are interrupted by periods of warm, dry weather - ideal for heading into the wine country to savour some of South Africa’s finest vintages. September and October are great months to be outside as perfectly temperate days start rolling towards summer.  

Kitchen

A fully-equipped kitchen with all the mod cons means easy meals at your own pace. A convenient laundry, with washing machine and tumble dryer, is located just off the kitchen. 

  • Electric oven & stove
  • Fully-equipped & serviced kitchen

Master Bedroom

Situated on the upper storey of the villa, the master bedroom is a study in stylish elegance and has breathtaking views of Table Mountain, a king-sized bed and a deep-set leather chair is the perfect place to take in the ever-changing vista.

  • En suite bathroom

Guest Bedrooms

Crisp white bed linen adorns comfortable double beds in the two guest bedrooms, located on the upper level of the villa. Large windows frame spectacular city and harbour views. Air conditioning and plasma-screen televisions make late-night lazing even more enjoyable.

Bathrooms

The spacious en suite bathrooms feature walk-in showers and elegant finishes.

Living & Dining Area     

Slide open the large doors to let the outside, inside. The comfortable lounge is equipped with a plasma-screen TV, DVD player and satellite TV for enjoying movies next to the roaring fireplace in winter. Or share the day’s experiences with your friends and family at the 6-seater dining table over a glass of South African wine.

  • Dining table & chairs
  • Satellite television

Outside Area

In summer, it will be difficult to tear yourself away from the pool-side sun loungers or the easy chairs that overlook the sprinkling of city lights in the distance. The wooden deck not only has an outdoor shower for rinsing off once you’ve cooled down in the swimming pool but also magnificent 360-degree views of Devil’s Peak, Table Bay and the city skyline.
