About the property

Old town house, close to the center, a rooftop terrace with 360 degree panoramic, king size bed and much more.

After 2 long term rentals now finally back on the Short Term Rental Market! Central yet quiet can not live it. The villa is located in Parrot truly unique location in the most beautiful part of the famous Bo Kaaps. Actually, a true enclave is located in the city center ... safe, comfortable and surrounded by greenery and gardens. It also brings together art, design and lighting objects. In the middle of Old Town Cape Town is our original and newly renovated holiday home - the Parrot Villa. Dock your iPhone in the ZIKMU speaker of P. Starck, take in your favorite music in a bath tub of the illuminated WET and enjoy the many lovely details of our home in the light of the unique light objects of Cattellani & Smith. The Russian artist Alexander Lochenkov has finished with his typical technique some of the walls - in other walls hang pictures of modern M. Bergh and N. Nongogo. A spiral staircase from the 19th century as leading from the kitchen to the spacious bedroom with the WET bathroom elements and a comfortable four-poster bed. From here it goes to the balcony and the roof terrace. From the roof you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama. Table Mountain, harbor, Signal Hill and Lions Head and Cape Town's vibrant city center lies at your feet here.

Since I operate in Germany, among other things, a gallery for contemporary art in South Africa - hang in our houses always pictures 'park between' there. So if you are interested in one or the other image - no problem - you can find everything available for purchase almost.

The Bo Kaap is next to the immediately adjacent Waterkant a rapidly rising district. The numerous colorful houses and mosques are open daily many tourists for a stroll.

Many television -and Films are shot in the streets and roads of Bo Kaap. The high-quality equipment can compete with any luxury suite and also a fast WiFi connection is available.

The villa is a real Parrot lovers object in a fantastic authentic surroundings - right in the Bo Kaap and thus in the historic center of Cape Town. Anyone looking for something special or unusual is probably good hands with regard to the location of the house and the facilities. On a balmy night, leaves the house - enjoy with open doors and switched on lights and candles on the most wonderful. City break, designers, architects and artists and all of 'land and people' interested vacationers will find hardly anything comparable in Cape Town. It should be noted that our villa was just Parrot consuming and freshly renovated and furnished. We ourselves attach great importance to spacious and comfortable beds, on-quality furniture and kitchen utensils - and of course at a high level of cleanliness. All the sights, museums, bars, restaurants and shopping malls are easily accessible on foot. The adjacent Waterkant is just 400m away.

Great place near the center of Cape Town.

  • 4 of 5

The property is comfortable and fairly well maintained. Just off Rose street on the edge of Bo Kaap, it makes for easy walking acces to Bree street, Long Street and all the eateries there. The owner Joachim was very helpful. There is secure parking where the property shares a courtyard with half a dozen others. We enjoyed our stay here it is convenient, quiet and safe.

Idealer Ausgangspunkt für die Entdeckung des Kps

  • 5 of 5

Für eine Woche diente uns die Villa Parrot im Bo Kaap als Ausgangsort für die Entdeckung von Kapstadt und der Gegend rund ums Kap. Extrem stylish ist die Villa Parrot, mit überraschenden Designelementen und wunderbarem Ambiente. Die Postkartenaussicht von der phänomenalen Dachterasse auf den Tafelberg und in die City Bowl ist atemberaubend. Die Sauberkeit des Hauses und die Hilfsbereitschaft und zahlreichen Tipps unseres Gastgebers sollten nicht unerwähnt bleiben. Zu erwähnen auch noch der gesicherte Parkplatz im Innenhof des Blocks, der auch bei nächtlicher Rückkehr eine entspannte Heimkehr garantierte! Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, trendige Viertel und sehr gute Restaurants in fußläufiger Umgebung. Villa Parrot ist wärmstens zu empfehlen!!!

Absolut Empfehlenswert!!! Top Lage!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in der Villa Parrot fünf Nächte verbracht und es waren mit Abstand die besten auf unserer Reise!! In dem Haus fehlt es an nichts Luxus pur, traumhafte Ausstattung, kunstvoll und stylisch eingerichtet, der Top Platz ist auf der Terrasse mit einem 360 Grad Blick auf Kapstadt. Das Auto parkt sicher in einem Hinterhof, freundliche Nachbarn. Wir haben uns dort sehr sicher und gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Der Eigentümer ist sehr hilfsbereit und steht mit Rat und Tat bei Fragen zur Seite! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!!!

Einfach nur schön.

  • 5 of 5

Um es auf den Punkt zu bringen: Es war einfach nur schön in der Villa Parot! Das Haus diente uns knapp 10 Tage als Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung der Kapstädter Innenstadt und näheren Umgebung. Es war nicht unsere erste Reise am Kap, aber diesen Urlaub werden wir so schnell nicht vergessen. Das feinst designte und absolut orginell ausgestatte Refugium im Herzen des BoKap Viertels trug seinen (großen) Teil dazu bei. WIr waren sozusagen "mittendrin" im Leben und trotzdem bot das Haus jederzeit eine komfortable Rückzugsmöglichkeit vom Trubel der Großstadt. Z.B. bei einem Sundowner auf der Terasse mit freiem Blick auf den Tafelberg oder mit einem Bad in der beleuchteten Badewanne. Besonders erwähneswert ist auch die im Innenhof angebotene, kostenlose und gesicherte Parkmöglichkeit!

Großes Lob auch an den Hausherrn, der uns mit einigen nützlichen Tipps zusätzlich geholfen hat.
