This one-bedroomed apartment is well positioned to enjoy all the highlights of Cape Town, from beaches, mountains, city living, dining, and the V&A Waterfront.

The space

Stylish modern African decor with a twist of originality. Indulgently this 1 bedroomed apartment has two full bathrooms, one with a fabulous shower and the other a slipper bath. Fully equipped kitchen, large living room, private garden & balcony are just some more of the main features. Our apartment accommodates a maximum of 2 people sharing 1 bedroom with a queen-sized double bed. We offer free wifi and satellite TV.

The guests will have day-time access to a small swimming pool shared with the owners.

We interact with our guests as much as or as little as they like. We are available for questions, tips and advice but are often out of town on weekends.

Living on the perimeters of Cape Town City is a joy and offers so many possibilities for nature-lovers and city-slickers alike. We love our 'hood because it is historic, trendy, artistic, creative, indigenous, design-led, vibrant, multi-cultural, original, noisy and fun. We have our own insider's guide to the area which we share with our guests but we also encourage exploration.

A MyCiti bus stop is about a 4 minute walk away and our area is well-frequented by taxis and Uber. We have street parking. Metered taxis, Uber or MyCiti are the best choices from the airport to us and we can book if necessary.

There are lots of staircases!
We are in an incredible location but the downside is traffic noise.

We had a month's stay at this beautiful apartment and it was more than comfortable for us. Janet is a lovely host and was very helpful with anything extra that we needed. The apartment is tastefully decorated, spacious and we had also use of a private balcony and garden. You can enjoy a relaxing bubble bath while admiring gorgeous views of Table Mountain! It's also very well located with many top restaurants and amenities close by. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you, Janet, for making our stay so memorable :)

We felt like home after a few seconds. :) the little house is actually located right under the table. You open the bathroom window and it is right there. It's got everything you need and the perfect location right around kloof and long street. Janet was very helpful telling us what's good and what's overrated. She also booked us a table in a nice restaurant and left us all important Infos for the surrounding area on a helpful note. We loved it and would recommend it to everyone!

During our 11 Days visit to Cape Town we had an amazing stay at Janet's lovely 'Under The Table' apartment. We had such a very warm welcome by Janet and she made my birthday unforgettable with tickets to the open air concert in Kirstenbosch Gardens and a Bottle of Champagne in the fridge.. The Apartment was everything we had imagined plus more! Location wise it was excellent with great restaurants and bars just down the street plus the famous Table Mountain almost in your backyard! Janet helped us planing Tours and gave us excellent ideas and tips to unique places to go to. We will definitely be back!! Thanks a lot Janet - you are great!

Jenet is a host every traveler is looking for. The house felt like home after first night. She welcomed us with champagne, wine and cold beer. Nothing is a problem for her and everything has a solution. She didn't only provided us with local tips. Jenet went beyond that and booked table for us in great restaurants as alternatives to our agenda. Very personal and authentic cape town house in great location. Walking distance to grocery shop and restaurants. (Approx. 1/2 hour to Kloof street by foot) Great views on the Lions head and Table mountain from the window.
