Self-catering accommodation in Cape Town

The self-catering option is a popular choice when visiting Cape Town.  The Mother City offers a wealth of tourist attractions backed by a solid infrastructure and self-catering accommodation lends itself perfectly to the kind of things you can look forward to in Cape Town, with several advantages over the other types of accommodation:

  • With self-catering accommodation you are not tied to a fixed schedule so that day trip to the winelands or nearby nature reserve is attainable, while lazy brunches overlooking the ocean or a braai on the beach are also among the endless possibilities.
  • You dictate your own meals enabling you to sample the magnificent dining options that Cape Town has on the menu and to take advantage of the freshest ingredients, available at seaside and countryside markets.
  • Self-catering accommodation provides separate bedrooms, a full kitchen, as well as dining and living areas. The whole family is accommodated in one unit making for relaxed meals, movies and just spending time together when you are not out exploring.  You can also invite new found friends over for a meal or to watch the big game if you like.
  • If you have small children or special dietary needs, mealtimes are just as effortless as they are at home and if you want to sleep in until midday, you can go right ahead in your self-catering apartment, without missing out on a meal you have paid for.
  • On a tight budget? Self-catering allows you to plan your meals so that you have more moola for the things you really want to do – like shopping up a storm in some of South Africa’s largest malls.
