Working remotely? Why not WORK HERE?--Super-fast fibre internet. Newly renovated. Perched on Promenade that runs miles in both directions.

Summer's arrived. Covid dwindling. Dams overflowing. Health & happiness abound.
Why risk northern hemisphere winter & lockdown? Why sit in Joburg? ...when you can do it in paradise

3km to V&A Waterfront, world-class restaurants, huge urban park, golf course, sports fields & stadium around the corner.
Robben Island out front. Putt-putt & kids playground

The space
Built-in an Art Deco 1936 opulent style, this "Grand Old Dame" of the Atlantic Seaboard carries herself with dignity. Wide corridors and stairways, an antique lift, vast airy rooms with high ceilings... super thick walls for insulation and a prominent position providing 180 degrees of world-class views. All these things put Knightsbridge Mansions into a league of her own.

The inner courtyard creates a classical and scenic internal view. It is a natural air conditioner that our wise ancestors knew how to exploit.

The apartment opens up onto an open plan kitchen, living and dining area and TV lounge offering Digital Satellite TV. You will find a comfortable queen-sized bed in the bedroom with its own private and newly added en suite shower, basin and toilet. The apartment also offers a second bathroom complete with a bath and shower and a separate guest toilet.

Guest access
Your security fob gives you access that allows you to bypass the 24-hour front desk security sign-in.
Elevator (or broad stairs) takes you to the 3rd floor.
Keypad at the door means you don't need a key

After a day in the sun, there is nothing quite like arriving through the 24-hour manned security entrance into a timeless 'yesteryear' atrium full of plants and coolth (I just invented that word. You'll just have to visit if you want to learn what 'coolth' means).

Other things to note
We love people.
Please read our 700+ reviews - hospitality is what we do - adding value to your memories.

Sea Point occupies the ideal location adjacent to the city, the Waterfront, sports and concert venues, golf, paragliding, and beaches.
Quite rightly then, it is fast becoming among the most expensive chunks of real estate in all of Africa.

There is an endless parade of activity up and down the kilometers of promenade. Our ocean is crisp and cleaned by the vastness of the South Atlantic - ours is the first and only human settlement it touches as it circulates from a pollution-free zone.
Our fabulous city is just 3 minutes away by car. The drive takes you along an excellent double carriageway road along the oceanfront. Every time you come or go from the suburb, you will be astounded all over again that such beauty can exist on a commute.

The apartment itself is extremely secure and behind a 24-hour manned entrance. Indeed, the entire suburb is very safe.

One block behind the building, you are spoiled for choice of supermarkets, restaurants, libraries.... and every other convenience you could wish for.

Sea Point is like a giant of La Jolla (the jewel in Southern Californias crown)... except that you get it at a fraction of the cost and crowds you'll find in California. And then the beaches close by, the mountains right behind, the wine farms, game lodges, history... Well - it's an entire world of wonder surrounding one community.

Prepare to fall in love and never want to leave.

Location

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

The building lies on the beautifully maintained and safe Sea Point promenade, right in the middle of the beachfront strip.
One block behind the building is Sea Point's main road - miles of shopping, dining, and conveniences.

The promenade before you, offers a 15m wide 4km paved strip that runs the length of the suburb. It is a hubbub of activity with hikers, cyclists, Rollerblade, joggers, walkers, ice-cream sellers, sun-seekers, triathletes.
Beyond the walkway is the Atlantic - sometimes wild and breathtaking in its fury, often like a lake lapping against a field of basalt rock-pools.
Out at sea are sailors, paddlers and the ocean's container, fishing and pleasure crafts and ships of every type. By night the ocean becomes a fairytale of ship lights at anchor.

As well traveled entrepreneurs with extensive experience in hospitality, we're extremely excited to share our native Cape Town with you. We're cheerful, relaxed and committed to making your vacation memorable. We live by the motto that a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet. We bring slightly different outlooks and skills: > Kirstin* has a love of mystery and the spiritual journey > Michael** is a science junkie with a skeptical squint that wants the hard logic and evidence. It lends us the unique characteristic of handling every unfolding aspect of hospitality and life with lots of perspective and goal orientated outcome. *Kirstin says: "Airbnb feels like a destiny come true. My family were and remain real estate agents and property developers, so that I was pickled in a brine of learning what people really want, and serving it up. My very first job began in a hotel, and then my career path took me all over the world, staying in every kind and level of hotel, motel and guest house or lodge. People are my interest and business. It is my pleasure to make your visit a very special one." **Michael says: "I was born to host... My parents were extremely sociable and I cannot tell you the number of times they would strike up a conversation with complete strangers - and if those strangers were from out of town and staying at a hotel, my folks would say (especially if they were foreign)... 'Ridiculous! You can't stay in an impersonal hotel you have to experience South African hospitality'... and home they would be brought. They were right, we had such a beautiful big home perched above the ocean that it would be a pity not to share it. The consequence was that we'd always have strangers in the home that very quickly became lifelong friends... as it should be in this human experience."
