About De Waterkant Place

In the heart of the Old Malay Quarter, exclusive De Waterkant Place Guest House is ideally situated, with picture perfect views of Table Mountain, Table Bay and the Waterfront, in one of the oldest, most vibrant, sought-after areas of Cape Town, and only 20 minutes from the airport.

This upmarket residence, with its distinctive and original Bo-Kaap architecture, lies within the unique, historical four-square kilometre area of De Waterkant Village with its quaint, tree-lined, narrow cobbled streets and Old Cape atmosphere.

Beautifully restored and graciously decorated in a Colonial style, De Waterkant Place Guest House offers three levels of well-appointed, spacious rooms, either with en-suite or separate private bathroom. The huge roof-top garden provides panoramic views of both Table Bay, with its busy harbour and waterfront, and the world-famous land mark, Table Mountain.

De Waterkant Place Guest House is conveniently situated within walking distance to the popular V & A Waterfront, Two Oceans Aquarium and Cape Town city centre. Cape Town’s most popular sun-drenched beaches and beach bars are also close by.

Trendy restaurants, coffee shops, delis, chic boutiques and exclusive décor establishments can be found in the immediate vicinity catering to even the most discerning traveller’s tastes.

Come and contemplate the busy De Waterkant Village or gaze at the majestic Table Mountain and sip a sundowner. Mark your days by the firing of the nearby noon day gun, you wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

Nice little place in the Waterkant village. Great location. Nice room tidy and spicy. Nice staff.

We liked the B&B very much. Proper, friendly and central. But nothing for disabled people as it is a hilly street and no elevator to the breakfast room.      A and S, soon 70.

Something with a difference. To be recommended.  Extremely friendly reception by Delica.

Very comfortable and cosy, ddespite the onset of the Cape winter coinciding with our visit. Staff were welcoming. Unfortunately, our sleep was seriously disturbed on Friday and Saturday night/early morning by thumping music from a neighboring club or house. While the B&B cannot of course be held responsible for this, it is apparently not unusual and guests in rooms 9 and 10 should perhaps be warned about the possibility. The breakfasts could be improved by adding wholewheat bread and perhaps fruit salad to expand the continental breakfast .range.
