Where would you advice to rent a place??

by Mlalo

Hi everyone,

I'll be in Cape Town for 10 days beginning of November. I thank those of you who already sent me some info about place to visit or website to consult.

I have a new question: where would you advice to rent a place? My boyfriend and I we would like to rent an apartment in a "safe" place.
I hope you will not see me as a prejudice tourist! I've been to Salvador before, never heard so many freaking things about this "unsafe" country and actually never found a place more pleasant and people are so nice!

However I was wondering in which part of Cape Town it would be better to stay. We would like to be able to walk around, be close to the centre of the city...

What about Cape Town City Centre? Waterkant? Waterfront?

Please advise

Marie

Hi
You have not given an indication of your budget- but yes, Waterkant area or Kloof Street have holiday apartments - and popular with tourists. The area is safe . Near the city and very trendy. Apply usual precautions , as in any big city. There is NO perect answer to the safety question. But really- having lived in Cape Town, and visiting frequently still- I have to say that sometimes this safety issue is a bit over-blown. Don't walk alone in dark streets or lanes- do not display expensive jewellery. Be aware of surroundings. Preferably- use a taxi late at night to return to your lodgings.
These are things that even in Sydney I would do.
Here is a website with apartments in your preferred areas, with prices.
Hope this helps

Hi Marie

If you are going to rent a car, then I suggest you rent a bit away from the center of town, where the night parking is easier (probably the same situation in Toulouse - but we don't burn so many cars here as in Paris). Cape Town traffic is relatively easy and the rush hour is quite short.

Suggest that you find a couple of places that look nice to you on the internet and then we can get an idea of what you like and give you better advice and comment on the safety, etc.

Try http://www.wheretostay.co.za/wc/cm/ for a start. 95% of the areas listed there are considered safe areas. (Notice that around the airport there is nothing listed - that is the "Cape Flats")

Bonjour Marie
My advice is to look outside of City Centre.

Waterfront is close to City Centre (about 2km) and most popular with tourists, but maybe also most expensive.

I list some areas where I think you will find rentals in reasonable price range:
Seapoint (about 4km from CPT). Near to popular beaches and active nightlife.
Campsbay (about 6km from CPT). Very popular beach and active nightlife.
Blaauwberg (about 15km from CPT). Nice beaches, many restaurants.
Muizenberg. Also about 15km from CPT, different direction. Nice beach. Closer to the "unsafe" area, but itself is safe.

If you want me to get you some names of possible places, and even prices, I do not mind, as I stay in Cape Town and it is no problem. Just send me a email with the dates you want.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Lovely beaches and great nature

by johanl

Capetown is a cosmopolitan city. A lot of things to do and see. Visit the many beaches and shops.
The area and cities around capetown are nice too and not that crowded. the beaches and the special atmosphere in the multi cultural and ethnic city.

Xhosa community

by Jenniflower

People in Africa are generally more physical with one another. They do not have the same concept of a need for personal space as westerners do. This physical closeness has some positives, one being mum carrying baby on her back with a blanket tucked securely beneath the baby and tied around mums waist. This is a cultural thing too of course, as prams are not available as they are in the west. I personally like this for a baby. Baby feels mums heartbeat and its more comforting, even if your pram (buggy) happens to be a cool 4x4 haha

Another aspect of their community is friendship. They are very community-orientated, people are readily accepted into their homes to share meals with them (albeit them being meagre anyway), and friends are easily made. They help each other a lot and work well in a community.

Selfishness is not a word that seems to fit into their clicking vocabulary :)

A WHALE OF A STORY

by PEE-WEE

This is a regular tour to the charming 'off the beaten track' seaside village of Hermanus. Famous for its giant aquatic summer visitors, Hermanus has established itself as one of the continents most desired tourist destinations. But there is far more to this bustling seaside town than her whales.

Join ME on a tour that includes dramatic mountain passes, beautiful coastal estuaries, secluded seaside retreats of the rich and famous and one of the most scenic coastal roads in the world.

Hope you enjoy the tour ,the whales are awesome.

African Drums

by thinking about The Drum Cafe

There is something immensely therapeutic about banging the heck out of a drum. Head to the Drum Café around 8 P.M., grab a drum and sit down for an impromptu lesson from the resident drumming experts. They will lead you through some basic beats, and an hour (and a few drinks) later, you'll be ready to rumble as each part of the room performs a different section of a traditional African song. Don't worry about messing up; there are enough people in the room to cover your mistakes. Admission is about $5.

GREAT MUSIC-GOOD FOOD-DANCING.

by PEE-WEE about LaMed- Clifton.

La Med owns summer in Cape Town. With exceptionally beautiful views, both ocean and mountain, La Med is the best ocean-side venue in South Africa. Locals and tourists alike pour into La Med for the ultimate Summer Experience.
Famous for our sundowners, La Med has a vast array of tantalising cocktails and offers gourmet pizzas, burgers, seafood and salads for the hungry.
What may seem like a mellow start to the evening can quickly change into a full swing party as La Meds in-house DJ turns up the music. There is music and dancing every night until late.
Our guests feel free to be "casual" and in true beach bar style they often wear beachwear including bikinis and board shorts.

Fun - Casual - Vibrant - Safe - Relaxed - this is what you should expect from La Med in summer!
