Comfortable accommodation in a good location.
Comfortable accommodation in a good location. If you plan on having / renting a car, parking in the area is difficult to find. The rooms are simple, but good enough if you are just looking for a place to sleep.

Not what we booked but......
We actually didn't stay at Dell Waterkant house, they are part of a collection of properties in the area and when we checked in we were actually given a room in the Charles guest house. We were a little dissapointed at first but the room was a good size with very comfortable King bed and good facilities. De Waterkant area has a great community feel with a choice of restaurants and bars. Would stay here again.

I didn't realize that it was the artsy rainbow community of Cape Town. Neighbourhood is safe, but decided to not go to their bars...
