Lovely 1-Bedroom 2nd Floor Apartment with Large Balcony in Fantastic Location.
This designer apartment has been newly transformed to take full advantage of the fabulous large balcony that transforms the living space.
Facing north, this private apartment on the 2nd floor of The Rockwell is protected from the Cape Town winds and is lovely and sunny in winter, yet cool and eternally liveable in the summer. With a Balinese divan and a dining table outside, this apartment is all about making the most of Cape Town and the outdoors.
The air-conditioned interior was designed by a renowned interior designer with a retro feel. It complements the Rockwell’s 1900s New York inspired architecture. The retro design makes full use of the interior space and flows easily into the protected balcony area. There are nice views across the De Waterkant area to the harbour and Cape Town Stadium.
WiFi is included. It's fibre (so nice and fast!)
There is a full kitchen and a washer and dryer to provide all the conveniences of home. The apartment also has an espresso machine and an ipod/iphone docking station.
The Rockwell complex was inspired by the early 1900s architecture of Manhattan, and is surrounded by delightful sidewalk restaurants, bars, art galleries and quaint boutique shops. The complex has a stunning seven story interior atrium and luxurious fittings throughout. It also boasts a gym and an indoor, heated pool.
The apartment is privately owned and managed by a high-end corporate agency who only deal with luxury rentals. They will meet all guests on arrival at The Rockwell and do all possible to ensure your stay in Cape Town is amazing. They also provide a complimentary weekly housekeeping service.
This apartment has been oficially graded as 4-star by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.
I'm more than happy to offer guests tips on the area and can recommend some amazing restaurants (that you'll need to book ahead for).
* Please note that this is a private residence in The Rockwell building and is not part of The Rockwell All Suites Hotel & Apartments. As a private resident you are invited to use the pool, gym and restaurant and bar, but bills cannot be charged to the room.
* Services like room service, a daily maid, bellboy and luggage storage are for hotel guests only.
I'm an Aussie living in South Africa for now. Sydney is my beloved home town, but I'd been coming to South Africa for years on holidays, but wanted to spend a decent chunk of time here, and have now been here 2 years. So I'm pottering around Southern Africa now, just hanging out with friends or grabbing my tent and going for 'a wander'.
I adore Cape Town and love all the food/wine/beach/sunshine options, and love sharing tips with guests.
I rent the apartment through a corporate letting agency most of the time, and just try to fill in the gaps myself.
It's a great, comfortable place to stay and is in an awesome location. Promise you'll love it!
