Lovely, spacious flat in a great location that is close to the centre but in a quiet spot. The large screen TV with Sky box is great for a night in. Simon provided quick and courteous comms throughout that helped provide a brilliant stay. Thoroughly recommended.

Myself and my Co-Host Barry love to travel, France, Italy, Spain being favorites, and we both have a huge soft spot for South Africa and in particular Cape Town. We are both food & wine lovers, workaholics and fitness freaks when it suits us, Barry definitely more than me. Running along any body of water is one of our preferred pastimes, we sometimes do it together. The canal our 2 Apartments sit on being a particular favourite. There is a great little pub along the route and on occasion, we have been known to cut a run short and take an over extended pit stop, which can often turn into a kind of complete voluntary surrender. Our two apartments are in such a fantastic location, you don't even need a car. Reading Station is a 12 min walk along the canal to the town centre. Vue movie theatre and all the high street suspects are at the Oracle Shopping Centre, a mere 7min walk away. Literally everything is within a stones throw! Both apartments are very spacious, floor to ceiling windows, but new wooden blinds to cosy it up at night if you want. If you do book either my place or Barry's, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do when we actually do get the opportunity to stay there! We are both extremely conscientious and are constantly monitoring standards. 5* reviews are very important to us and as you can see, we are definitely doing something right as we have maintained these standards pretty well to date. We are both extremely responsive and you will find communicating with us very easy. We have been in the industry for years, we understand your needs and requirements, looking after our guests is second nature to us and in our own modest opinions, we are very good at it.
