Additional Location Information

De Waterkant, also known as the Cape Quarter, is a bustling, colourful area with old buildings and cobble streets, lying on the slopes of Signal Hill between the historical Bo-Kaap area and the Waterfront, overlooking Table Bay.
The name “de Waterkant” means water’s edge: before land reclamation moved the area back from the sea.
There is still a cannon on Lion Battery on Signal Hill which is fired every day, except Sunday, at noon “the Noon Day Gun.” You will hear this loud boom from the apartment.
Previously known as District 5, sibling to the infamous District 6, it was, during the 1700s -1800s, the home of many Malay slaves. Around 1966 the government of the day forcefully relocated these people away from their sea view and mountain shade to the comparatively barren and flat Cape Flats to make way for the so-called upper echelons of society. Ultimately, however, it was bohemian liberals, free-thinking students and the gay population who moved into the area. Today, de Waterkant, is a very sought after address boasting a host of niche restaurants and boutiques, quaint outdoor cafes, art galleries and antique stores all cradled within a scenic, pedestrian-friendly area.
The ossuary at the Prestwich memorial, contains the remains of a burial site discovered during the redevelopment of the area. You will also see the remains of the tram line for the horse drawn tram which ran from Cape Town to Camp’s bay.
Just 5 minutes leisurely walk from Cape Town city centre , this exclusive, trendy area is the perfect base from which to explore. Walk to the lively V&A; Waterfront or through the Greenpoint Urban Park to join the Atlantic coast promenade stretching from the V & A Waterfront through to Camp’s Bay.
Metered taxis are easily available outside the Cape Quarter Mall.
