Large, light filled character loft located on Bree Street, which is the street everyone's talking about these days. You have the very best of what Cape Town can offer on your doorstep yet the peace and quiet of a poolside location in the heart of the city.
In a nutshell it is a large, airy 1 bedroom loft apartment on the 9th floor of a landmark city centre building. There is a pool on the same floor complete with pool side cocktail bar and loungers. Pool closed from May until early October.
2 lifts service the residential floors of the building and the ground floor reception has door staff all day and all night. Outside the front door you have all the sights in the city centre within a 10 min walk and a 2 min walk from Cape Town's coolest cafes, restaurants and bars.
The loft doesn't have air con but the tiled floors and brick walls help the flow of air which keeps it cool in summer and warm on the cooler days. If you're feeling hot there is a very effective portable fan.
Open plan space with kitchen, dining table for 6 and lounge seating for 4.
The bathroom has a large walk in shower. Hot water is constant.
Bedroom benefits from being on the courtyard site of the building and is therefore much quieter. There are three mosques in brightly coloured Bo Kapp (a photographer's dream) and I love to hear the morning and evening call to prayer; if you don't enjoy this unique sound you might have an issue.
The apartment building is accessed via Bree St and the hotel (floors 1 to 8 beneath the apartment) is accessed via Buitengracht Street.
You will have full access to the swimming pool.
Smoking is permitted but STRICTLY on the balcony or at the pool area.
Internet is unlimited and you will be provided with network and password at check-in.
I am very happy to stay in touch via email/WhatApps while guests are staying.
I will leave a guide for guests so that they can find their feet faster and maximise their stay.
I'm originally from Northern Ireland and have been living and working in South Africa for the past 6 years at the University of Cape Town.
I did lots of travelling around Europe when I lived in the UK and even though I've visited a few southern African countries I'd love to see more.
I like to think of myself as a friendly, social kind of guy who enjoys company but it equally happy in my own space.
