Flat in Century City Cape Town, South Africa

Should you wish more info on Cape Town please  visit : www.capetown.travel or www.tourismcapetown.co.za 
Cape Town has been nominated as the best destination in the world for tourists and family holidays. Iconic Table Mountain stands guard over the city bowl which lies on a peninsula between the Indian and the Atlantic oceans.

We live in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1 study apartment on the 8th floor of a 5 star luxurious retirement complex with panoramic views from all rooms. A 5 minute walk takes you to the largest & most modern mall / shopping complex in southern Africa. Modern shops of all kinds, restaurants and a huge cinema complex.
If walks are your thing a bird sanctuary surrounded by a canal system is near by and the sea a 15 minute safe walk. The complex offers heated swimming pool, gym, sauna, excellent subsidized restaurant, pub snooker room, wonderful friendly neighbours, WiFi and cable TV. From each room there is an outstandingly different view of the cape peninsula. Drinks at night on the balcony is like looking at xmas tree lights. There is easy and quick access to the beaches and golf courses. Restaurants abound with top class wines at reasonable prices (especially foriegn currency).We are  close to the N1 which will take you to the winelands within an hour and the beautiful French village called Franschhoek. The city bowl and V&A Waterfront is 10minutes drive away. Here you can go on tours of Table Mountain and enjoy the 2 "Hop on, Hop off bus"
tours. One along the Atlantic Ocean and the other the Indian Ocean. Stop offs are 20 minutes apart on most days.
I love cooking so all the amenaties you may require are available. We are open to exchanges, hosting or even bed & breakfast (couple or single only).
Although transport can be arranged through the concierge & there is a local bus service you are advised to make sure that you have your own transport. We can arrange to swap cars( a Hyundai 4x4 or Merc C350 low mileage) . All roads are wide & in  good condition , easy to navigate, if you have a problem the satnav is very efficient. A second house can be negotiated (3 bed 2 baths fully furnished ) in Knysna 500 klms SE on the Wilderness coast. This apartment is situated on a lagoon famous for its sea food and especially Oysters.(see www.lagunagrove.co.za  golfers paradise & generally a place suited to sleep eat and read.)
Contact us we would love to explore ideas that may involve travel
