Exceeded our Expections!

  • 5 of 5

Barry Hall is THE place to stay in Cape Town -- we enjoyed our week enormously! Absolutely gorgeous in architecture and furnishings, completely safe and in a safe area, professionally run, very friendly service, and meeting Rita was a delight. The area offers lots of services and restaurants, yet is out of the busy downtown area. (The convenient MyCiti bus service takes you wherever you want to go.) Rent at Barry Hall with confidence and have a wonderful time!

Felt just like home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Barry Hall was most delightful. The location is terrific if you prefer(like us)to be away from the hustle & bustle of downtown but just a short cab or bus ride from all the action. Rita, the owner, was extremely helpful always available. Being within walking distance of several good restaurants & the beach was an added bonus. We would recommend Barry Hall to everyone & would definitely stay there again.

Charming, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a delightful stay at Barry Hall. It is close to restaurants, shopping for any essentials, and transportation. The owner did everything possible to make our stay easy - from arranging airport transportation to personally greeting us at 11 p.m. and checking in regularly to ensure all was going well. The apartment itself is spacious and well furnished with recently updated bathrooms. The surroundings are attractive and comfortable for walking around. The building itself has one, two, and three bedroom apartments to suit parties of various sizes. We loved our stay and would highly recommend.

Great location, wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Barry Hall. It is centrally located with great views. We were in apartment 3 with our 2 grown daughters. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable, and the beds were comfortably firm. It is a great value too!

Barry Hall is exactly as the listing describes. It is very clean, well maintained. Rita and the daily! housekeeper were very helpful but were in the background unless you needed them. We walked to dinner in the neighborhood twice, and found that Barry Hall was a great location for getting to the waterfront as well as to other sights near Cape Town.

I would very highly recommend Barry Hall to anyone, especially my friends and relatives.

A comfortable, quiet base of operation and retreat for a stay in Cape Town

  • 5 of 5

Attractive building is on a quiet street in a quiet suburban neighborhood with adequate parking either on the property behind an electronically-operated gate or on the street. Set back from street, fronted by a secure gated entry and surrounded by nice gardens. 2nd floor apartment was spacious, full of light, and tastefully decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen. Rooms are expertly serviced daily; very helpful owner. Very near the wonderful waterfront Sea Point promenade; coffee & breakfast spot very close by; easy walking distance to 2 supermarkets, several banks, shops, lunch spots, etc. Walk to La Perla or La Mouette for good dinners. A perfect base for exploring the greater Cape Town area.
