Vacation rentals in Cape Town

Living in Cape Town

Hardly any other city in South Africa attracts as many tourists as Cape Town. If you are looking for a modern vacation rental or a cosy apartment, you will find it all over the city. Very popular are not only the quarters on the Atlantic coast in districts such as Green Point, Century City or Bloubergstrand, but also the accommodations directly in the city, from where you can dive directly into the pulsating nightlife.

A vacation rental in a special location

The picturesque vacation rentals on the Cape Peninsula, which combine modern flair with the touch of the Victorian era, are particularly beautifully situated. A vacation rental on the coast promises a fantastic view of the Cape, which is covered in waves. Even quieter is the view behind the town near the Paarl Mountain Local Nature Reserve, where spacious estates with idyllic plantations, vineyards and a private pool await you.

Holiday in Cape Town

Location and orientation

Spatial division of Cape Town

Cape Town lies in the south of South Africa directly on the Atlantic Ocean and borders on the Cape of Good Hope. The city is divided into 24 subcouncils, which in turn are divided into up to six districts. Most of the tourist attractions are located in the original districts of Wards Good Hope, Protea and Southern Suburbs, whose roots go back to the Burmese settlers.

Locomotion on site

If you want to explore South Africa's pearl on your own, you should reserve a rental car before your trip. But make sure that you pay cash when you refuel. Credit cards are usually not accepted. You travel much more comfortably in the official taxis, which are very cheap with a kilometre price of 10 Rand. A little more adventurous are the minibus taxis, which are popular with locals, where you can make nice contacts.

Things to know

Best travel time

The location in the southern hemisphere ensures that summer arrives in South Africa when winter slowly sets in here. Thanks to temperatures averaging up to 26 degrees Celsius, low rainfall and an average of up to 12 hours of sunshine, Cape Town is an ideal destination for all winter refugees between November and March. If you want to explore the region by mountain bike or hike in the South African national parks, you can also take advantage of the mild South African autumn and winter.

Regular events

Cape Town is basically a year-round celebration, with a colourful programme ranging from Cape Minstrels Carnival in January, the Up the Creek Music Festival in February and the Cape Argus Pick'n'Pay Cycle Tour, the region's largest cycle race with 38,000 participants. Further highlights are the 10-day Hermanus Whale Festival in September and the Lifestyle Festival Rocking the Daisies.

The Cape of Good Hope is not, as is often assumed, the southernmost point of the African continent, but Cape Agulhas, a few kilometres to the east.

Top 3 travel tips

Table Mountain

The 1087 metre high Table Mountain is Cape Town's landmark and, thanks to its dominant silhouette, can also be seen from your holiday home. Visit this unique monument of nature either on foot along one of the well-maintained hiking trails or use the cable car to enjoy the panorama of the summit.

The Cape of Good Hope

The Cape of Good Hope, feared by seafarers, belongs to every holiday in Cape Town like a South African barbecue. If you don't want to see the cape only from land, you can also take a boat trip around the cape or admire the colourful underwater life during a dive.

Robben Island

A visit to the former prison island of Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela also spent many years, leads you on the trail of the apartheid regime and gives you fascinating insights into this dark chapter in the prison converted into a museum. Today you can also observe rare birds on the island which has been declared a natural monument.
