Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with a wonderful historic Manor House which had been sadly neglected. We set about restoring it to its full former glory dating back to 1898 retaining the outside facade and leaded windows and numerous other features and built totally new bathrooms, kitchens etc. My husband's background in the architectural field combined with my former work at Scandianvian Airlines in Copenhagen led us to make an improptu decision to share our apartments with travelers from all over the World, and to offer them a home from home in Cape Town. It has been great fun, and we look forward to continue sharing Danish/South African hospitality with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Sea Point (Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa):
With its (nearly) perfect weather, windfree area, and location mid way between the City and Camps bay and Clifton beaches Barry Hall Apartments is an ideal base from which to explore Cape Town. Barry Hall is located in the Jewish part of town and is within walking distance to shops, beachfront promenade and synagogues.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The large spacious apartments are rarely found in modern rental buildings today, and all the buildings rich decor from another era makes the building a special place to visit. Our cozy courtyard garden is a tranquil place to enjoy el fresco dining under the pergola, relax in a deckchair, or make a barbeque/braai. The apartments are serviced daily, weekdays by our housekeeper Zoliwe and her assistant, they will do your laundry too, leaving you free to enjoy all Cape Town has to offer. Free internet connection in your own apartment.
