We honestly can’t think of any reason not to book this Airbnb, it is a gem. In fact, this Airbnb is the reason why we want to return to Cape Town. A special thanks for the service; prior to our stay, we were in a desert for a week with no signal, so our estimated time of arrival was quite short-notice. Sinethemba & Peter were very understanding & flexible. Thank you!

Bucket List Trip with Friends
We stayed in Cape Town for a few days prior to setting off on a safari with a group of friends. It was the perfect place to adjust to the time zone. The area was wonderful! There were a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance, a fabulous place for breakfast across the street and a grocery story within an easy walk. The property sits on a hill and so the roof top level has the most amazing views of Table Mountain, the city and the waaterfront. It was an easy walk down to the waterfront area where there are lots of shops, etc. The prpperty was very well secured, very clean and modern and each bedroom has its own private bath. The beds were comfortable and everything worked well. The main kitchen dining living area was perfect for us all togather (as was the rooftop). Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

The house is a tardis in the middle of the city
A great home in the centre of cape town.
You will be pleasantly surprised when you open the door. It is close enough to everything and has many little eating places and a supermarket surrounding this place. The view from the rooftop will surprise you too.

Would I stay here again , yes .

But some advice as the house is on a steep hill with a cobbled road, if you have walking or hip problems please look into this before you book. The parking can be a bit of a nightmare but if you are out most days it shouldn't worry you to much.

But yes I would stay at 53 Napier again.

Beautiful apartment
The host is fantastic. The location is great, about 15 mins to V&A waterfront. The rooftop is stunning, could do with a couple more loungers but we made it work.

Think the £500 deposit is taken too early & held for too long. 6 weeks in total, this is done from a 3rd party provider.

Kirsty - Posted: 3/8/2023
Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the location and the rooftop of the property. I will make sure to pass along your feedback about the need for more loungers on the rooftop to the property owner. Regarding the deposit, I understand that it may be inconvenient for it to be taken too early and held for a lengthy period of time. However, it is common for vacation rental properties to require a deposit to cover any potential damages that may occur during a guest's stay. The duration of the hold may vary depending on the policies of the third-party provider. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

incredible I would highly recommend
beautiful, pictures don’t do it justice. clean modern and spacious

showers were not very practical, the water goes everywhere because of the way the doors are and you can’t open the window shutters fully in the bedroom during the day as everyone on the street can see inside but you get some coverage from the trees

Beautiful spacious apartment - better than the photos! Rooftop is stunning. Loads of amazing restaurants, bars and shops in immediate vicinity. Only Downside is noisy neighbours and minimal noise insulation on the interior and exterior. Could hear the neighbours all night. Bedroom doors also need oiling. Would recommend to anyone looking to be ~5min drive to the waterfront.

I’ve travelled all over the world and stayed in countless airbnbs, and this one comes out on top.

The art & attention to detail is immaculate, every bedroom is big & spacious and has their own private bathrooms, high ceilings, the kitchen is the best equipped in any airbnb I’ve seen, and theres an amazing rooftop with perfect view to Table Mountain. The pool offers a nice treat on warm days, and the house is located in a nice neighbourhood that feels safe.

We really enjoyed our stay here, and hope to return here the next time we are in South Africa! ?

Really enjoyed our stay. If i could give a higher rating than 5 for the location and cleanliness I would’ve! Jaco was super awesome welcoming us and walking us through the house.
It’s a petty there is no grill up on the rooftop, if there was, this would’ve gotten 5 stars for sure.
Maybe just have a look at the sliding doors to the bedrooms, it takes 2 people to move them open and close.
Thank you for a great stay!

On a nice evening, the rooftop has spectacular views. The area has a special vibe and quaint restaurants and shops are all a stone's throw away. I was nervous about leaving my borrowed car in the street, but there was no problem at all, there is a security guard who patrols the street. You will not be disappointed with this one!

Avoiding the cliché, but the photos really do not do the property justice! It was beyond our expectations. My brother and I have previously stayed in the De Waterkant (ideal safe city location), but this was easily our favourite property. Great living spaces (kitchen, living room, rooftop terrace), amazing high quality finishes throughout, and the bedrooms with comfortable king beds all with en-suite provided much needed peace of mind for each guest. Without question we will be back and explore what else Nox rentals has to offer! Great stay, great hosts.
