About Waterways

Waterways provides modern, self-catering accommodation in Marina Da Gama and offers a stunning view of the lake and mountains from the patio, right on the water’s edge. Waterways has been operating for 24 years and is Cape Town Tourism approved.

Accommodation is offered in three self-catering flatlets, namely the Main Waterside Flatlet, Off-water Flatlet and Budget Flatlet. Each flat has its own private entrance, en-suite bathroom and TV. The Main Waterside Flatlet has full DSTV. The Budget and Off Water Flatlets have two DSTV channels and can request what they would like to watch.
The Main Waterside Flatlet and Off-water Flatlet each have fully equipped kitchen areas, while the Budget Flatlet has a partial kitchen facility. The Main Waterside Flatlet and Off-water Flatlet can also be joined by an interleading passage for larger groups or families. The Main Waterside Flatlet has three steps up to the bedroom section and one into the en suite bathroom. Also three steps down to the waterside patio. This unit is not wheelchair or disability friendly.

The Main Waterside Flatlet has its own patio with outdoor furniture, sun beds, braai facilities and a wonderful view. The Budget Flatlet has a large covered waterside patio with outdoor furniture and braai facilities. All linen, towels, crockery and cutlery are provided. Off-street parking is available and the area has a general security system.

At Waterways you can enjoy a relaxing holiday, with free use of a pedalo, rowing boat, canoe and paddle-ski to explore three hours of waterways. For those who like walking, the Marina Da Gama is ideal for an evening stroll, with its own island and bird hide for keen bird-watchers.
