    Wonderful old house with a kind landlord. We stayed in the main house with our 5 month old daughter, which was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The location is very close to some excellent restaurants and it felt like a very safe neighbourhood.

    Andreas spent 2 weeks in the main apartment. His review on Airbnb:
    A large, beautifully furnished Victorian apartment in the old part of Greenpoint, close to a fanatastic park and the seaside. I was by myself, so it felt a bit too big.

    Perfectly situated and delightful.

    Perfectly situated to walk into town or waterfront. Clean and thoughtful furnished. Well stocked kitchen and the little touches of milk and bread meant we did not have to race out to shop as we got there. Thanks Stuart.

    Daniel, his family and his dogs spent 8 days in the main apartment. He posted this review on
    The place is very close to the Green Park centrum, to the hiking trails on the Signal Hill and to the restaurants and shops. So the location is excellent. The rooms are enough big, the living room is huge, the kitchen is well-equipped. This house is ideal for families. The landlord and the helper were very kind. At arrival some food and drinks were waiting for us.

    Gianni stayed in the loft apartment and posted this review on Airbnb:
    I had a lovely 4week stay at Stuart’s apartment! The view and amenities are great and the cleaning lady that came by three times a week was super thorough. Also, the wooden ceiling renders everything very cosy and the kitchen is quite well equipped. I can really recommend a stay in this apartment for any duration. Things to be aware of before booking in my point of view: 1. The Wifi is mostly okay in terms of speed but working from the apartment doing video-calls etc is a bit of a stretch. If you require perfectly reliable fast internet, you should either tether or not use the apartment as a work base 2. Since the apartment is on the top, the wind howling on the different edges of the roof creates a considerable noise. I am not very sensitive to that so it was absolutely not a problem for me but if you are and it is a bit of a windy week, you will maybe not be too happy. Stuart is a good host and will make you feel at home.

    Response from you: Hi Gianni, Thank you for your review. You and I did discuss the Wifi speed when you were staying and I told you that the range extender in the loft sometimes needs re-booting. I have just re-booted it and a speed test now shows 35 Mbps. Glad you were happy with other aspects of your stay. Regards Stuart

    Alles war total unkompliziert – ich durfte sogar früher in die Wohnung, da mein Flugzeug bereits am Vormittag landete und die Wohnung frei war. Stuart hat mich nett empfangen, ein Frühstück lag im Kühlschrank bereit. Alles bestens. Leider musste ich 1 Woche früher nach Hause bezüglich Corona und drohender Flughafenschliessung. Auch das verlief unkompliziert. Besten Dank – gerne wieder!

    Great characteristic loft appartement with a wonderful view (sea, Robben island, World Cup stadion). Everything you need within walking distance. Safe and quiet neighborhood. Stuart was so nice to leave a breakfast at the apartment. Highly recommended place to stay.
    You can hear the wind very well when it is windy as it is a top floor apartment from a house build on the hill.

    Tolle Ferienwohnung in Green Point.
    Schönes Loft, sehr individuell ausgebaut. Toller Ausblick, bequeme Betten, sehr gute Küchenausstattung. Netter Empfang mit Brot, Saft, Butter und Obst! Die Lage ist ideal, fußläufig zur Waterfront, Stadion, Park und City.
    Das Loft ist wegen der vielen Stufen nicht geeignet für Kleinkinder oder handicapped People.

    Jan and his adult children spent 8 nights in the main apartment. Jan posted this review on Airbnb:
    I agree with other reviewers that this is a lovely place to stay and explore Cape town. The facilities are fine and the location superb. It’s a quiet neighborhood, and close to the waterfront. We rented a car to explore the Cape Town region and that’s highly recommended.

    Richard and Rado stayed for a week over New Year. They posted this review on
    This space is a fantastic option for your stay in Cape Town. It’s a nicely converted loft space in a Victorian home in quiet residential area. It features outstanding views – including the ocean/stadium from the bedroom/lounge and the mountain from the terrace on the rear. Everything has been included should you wish to self cater – although there’s many great restaurant options nearby -Uber will collect you directly from the front of the property. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay here and would highly recommend it – especially as it is great value for money. The only issue is that access is via very steep stairs – if you have any mobility issues this might prove quite challenging.

    My wife and me are thinking to visit this place again.
    Stuart did his best. He even met us when we faced the problems with our car on the way from airport. Apartment was comfortable. Coffee machine made our stay even more pleasant. We appreciate it a lot. The only problem – shortage of water on Cape Town (and at apartment in particular). But this is the challenge to the municipality. Look at Dubai. Even in desert it looks they sorted it out.

    Große, schöne Wohnung. Netter Gastgeber. Gute Lage !!!
    Die zur Zeit üblichen, extremen Wassersparmaßnahmen. z.B. Duschwasser oder Zähneputzwasser sammeln um damit Toilette zu spülen … aber dafür kann der Gastgeber nichts. Wenn kein/wenig Wasser da ist … hat man dafür natürlich Verständnis.

    Comme à la maison en mieux. Le loft est ub endroit fantastique, plus grand que les photos le laissent imaginer, traversant avec terrasse et vue. Présence discrète et attentionnée de Stuart. Tranquille et vivant à la fois, pas très loin de tout ce qu’on peut faire au Cap. Deux arrêts de bouché de possibillé de garer pour voiture pour qui en un un … maître le center-ville est aussi accessible à pied.

    Ótimo para quem gosta de lugares aconchegantes e de sentir em casa. O loft é espaçoso e o quarto fica num sótão. É o local para quem se vira sozinho. Tem cozinha com comodidade e máquinas de café, de lavar louça, roupa, jarra elétrica e fogão.
    Fica perto do estádio. Dá para ir ao Waterfront caminhando (30 minutos) ou de Uber.

    Melissa and her partner came for a week and posted this review on Trip Advisor:
    Stayed in the loft apartment and had all we needed, including washing machine/dryer, cooking facilities, coffee machine and DStv. The special touch was the late check-in with breakfast provisions for the first morning. The bed was comfortable, the location safe to walk around, close the V&A Waterfront and restaurants, supermarket, etc. The only small improvement would be a more comfortable lounge. Loved the apartment and will stay here again. Thanks to Stuart ad Tarasai for making the booking and stay so comfortable and easy.

    Karen and her husband spent 5 nights in the loft apartment. She left this review on Expedia:
    Our check-in/out timings were flexible and the explanations comprehensive: appliances, safe, TV, security, etc. It was great to have the fresh bread, butter, jam, fruit, milk & juice and bottle of water, coffee & tea provided. The large windows & skylights enhanced the spaciousness of the rooms. There are a number of stairs to reach the top floor, so great exercise, but could be steep for some. The bed & chairs were very comfortable. If decor were to be updated in future, a slightly larger, more inviting settee/couch could be added and updated draperies for the bedroom and TV area. Extremely pleasing overall!

Voll ausgestattete Wohnung mit kleinem Starter-Set in der Küche(Milch, Brot, Scholade ….) Sicherheitskamera am Eingang mit Monitor in der Wohnung. Von Geschirrspüler, Herd bis Waschmaschine alles da. Nur die Treppen sind ein wenig steil. Stuart gibt Tipps und auch Roomservice alle zwei Tage ist inklusive.

    Wahrlich ein “home away from home”!
    Ein derart gut ausgestattetes Apartment haben wir noch nie bewohnt. Dem Wohlfühlen stand von der ersten Minute an nichts entgegen, an alle Kleinigkeiten und noch viel mehr war gedacht, für die man ansonsten viel Zeit und Geld investieren muss. Genuss von der ersten Minute an in einem denkmalartigen und museal ausgestatteten Haus mit Spirit und einem sehr hohem Gemütlichkeitsfaktor. Volle Punktzahl, auch für den Gastgeber Stuart, der unseren Aufenthalt wegen einer erheblichen Flugverspätung unkompliziert bis Mitternacht verlängerte.

    Petra stayed in the loft apartment for over 7 weeks. Her review on Airbnb:-
    Ich hatte das Loft-Apartment für fast 2 Monate gemietet. Es ist sehr gemütlich und hat einen phantastischen Ausblick auf die Küste und ist sehr nahe zu Geschäften, Restaurants und zur Waterfront ( ca. 10-15 Gehminuten ). Außerdem befindet es sich in einer sicheren und ruhigen Wohngegend. Von Greenpoint aus kann man Kapstadt sehr gut erkunden, da es sehr nahe zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten liegt. Falls man ein Auto angemietet hat, befinden sich Parkmöglichkeiten direkt vor dem Haus. Aber auch ohne Mietwagen hat man keine Probleme mobil zu sein. Eine Bushaltestelle für “mycity bus” erreicht man nach ca. 5 Gehminuten. Ich war immer mit den “ubertaxis” unterwegs, was sehr bequem war. Das Apartment schaut genauso aus wie auf den Fotos. Im Apartment befinden sich alle Dinge, die man zum Leben benötigt. Die Betten sind sehr gut. Die Küche ist gut eingerichtet, es ist kein Problem eigene Mahlzeiten zu kochen, außerdem ist ein Kaffeeautomat vorhanden. 3 x wöchentlich wird das Apartment gereinigt, der Müll entsorgt und die Wäsche gewechselt, was im Preis inbegriffen ist. Stewart war ein sehr guter Gastgeber. Die Kommunikation vor und während des Aufenthaltes lief reibungslos. Stewart ist sehr hilfsbereit und war immer sofort ansprechbar wenn es kleinere Probleme gab. Besonders nett war, dass Brot, Milch, Eier, Butter, Orangensaft, Kaffee und Wasser bei Ankunft bereitgestellt wurden, sodass man nicht sofort einkaufen gehen musste. Herzlichen Dank dafür! Ich kann das Apartment jedem empfehlen, der zentral aber trotzdem ruhig wohnen möchte. Ich habe mich dort wie zu Hause gefüllt und vermisse mein morgendliches Kaffeetrinken auf dem schönen großen Balkon. Ich komme definitiv im nächsten Jahr wieder. Thank you Stewart for a lovely stay! I had a really good time and I’ll be happy to come back next year!

    We had the loft apartment at Braeside House. Stuart was a great host. It was no problem that we arrived earlier because of a changed flight. Everything we could possibly need was there. He even thought of a welcome pack with all essential foods and drinks for the first meal. Braeside is perfectly situated to discover Cape Town and the view over Green Point is great. Surely a place to go back to.

    Thomas spent 4 nights at Braeside House and posted this review on Airbnb:
    Was für ein Ausblick. Wir hatten eine große Loft-Wohnung mit einer tollen Aussicht auf das Stadion. Stuart ist sehr nett und hat uns bei der Nutzung der öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel mit den mycity Karten ausgeholfen. Oft haben wir vor den Panoramafenstern gesessen und nur den Ausblick genossen. Es gibt auch ein zusätzliches Bett, welches Herabklappbar ist und für Kinder gut geeignet. In dem kleinen Schlafzimmer sollte man, bedingt durch die Schrägen, aufpassen sich nicht zu stossen. Dafür hat man auch von dort einen herrlichen Ausblick. Es gibt noch einen Kohlegrill von Weber aud der kleinen Terrasse für die Möglichkeit eines eigenständigen Braais. Ein kleiner abschließbarer Stauraum für die Koffer ist auch vorhanden. Green Point ist bekannt für viele B&B Etablissements und Stuarts Loft gehört sicherlich zu den Besonderen. Ein Sparmarkt ist unten auf dem Main-Street nicht weit entfernt. Auch die V&A Waterfront ist fußläufig erreichbar. Die Küchenzeile ist gut ausgestattet und offen. Alles in allem ein gelungener Aufenthalt.

    A review posted on Trip Advisor:
    “A Really Special Place”
    5 of 5 stars Reviewed by Jellymouse
    This is an excellent place to stay. We had a few nights in the large part of the property, and then one night in the loft on our way back after we took a road trip up the Eastern Cape (a journey I very much recommend).

    Many foreign tourists traveling in SA worry about safety, so let me assure you this feels like a very safe place to stay. It’s a quiet neighbourhood, there are appropriate security features on the property. It is in a great location though, you’re not gated off from the world. Stay in Greenpoint if you like things fairly peaceful and don’t need to be where the party is at all times. It was a short walk down to the beautiful seafront where we went for runs in the morning. Stuart provided information about local shops, restaurants, transport options.

    The main apartment is clean and spacious. This was not a place that has been made to look bigger in photos! You could easily have a large group of people here. The loft is small and cosy but doesn’t feel at all cramped. Underfloor heating in one of the bathrooms was a real treat. There are gorgeous views out the front window of the main apartment which I hadn’t anticipated.

    I have since recommended this property to other people, including some much older colleagues of mine, and they loved it too, so I think you could safely classify Braeside as suitable for couples, families with kids, groups of friends and older travellers (though do note there’s a steep staircase to get up to get inside).

    Our stay at the Braeside House Loft Apartment was fantastic. The spotlessly clean place had a stunning view, with huge windows and a lovely deck. There was off street parking, and even a washing machine (a huge boon to a family). The location is extremely convenient – residential, but within easy walking or driving distance of pretty much everything. Highly recommended!

    Esmaralda and her husband stayed in the loft apartment for the Two Oceans Marathon and posted this review on Travel Ground:
    Mooiste uitsig op Robbeneiland en die stadion.
    Die solderwoonstel is baie oulik, goed toegerus en romanties! Ons was aangenaam verras met die skottelgoedwasser en wasmasjien. Daar is ook heerlike ondervloerse verhitting in die badkamer vir die koue nat aande in Kaap. Ons het heerlike “starter pack” ontvang. Sal weer gebruik vir verblyf omdat dit so sentraal geleë is. Enigste voorstel is dalk sekuriteitswag vir motors wat buite staan.

    Dominique and his family spent a week in the main apartment and left this review on Airbnb:
    Our arrival time has been delayed but Stuart has been very flexible, waiting for our our late arrival at Braeside House. The appartment is conveniently located in Green Point. The main appartment is more spacious than it looks on the pictures, very pleasant, well equiped and very clean. The area looks very safe. We have enjoyed our week long stay at Braeside and definitely recommend it.

    Jessica and her Mother spent 3 nights in the loft apartment. She posted this review on Trip Advisor:
    A fantastic apartment to stay in on our short venture to Cape Town…only wish we could have stayed longer! Very spacious with beautiful views of the city from the lounge. we felt very at home.

    Stuart welcomed us with lovely little touches such as milk and orange juice in the fridge. It seems he has thought of all those little extras you might need and ensured they were all there.

    The loft itself is very clean, bathroom is a great size and shower with plenty of hotwater. The kitchen is very well equipped with every possible necessity catered for. Along with those extra touches included big fluffy gowns and a proper hair dryer.

    The loft is very well located with easy access to several of Cape Town’s attractions. We were left with plenty of Taxi contact numbers and loads of brochures to get our minds wandering where to go!

    Great apartment with a fantastic view! It’s kept in a beautiful wooden style. It is very spacious and is equipped with all you need. Very comfortable bed! The only thing we would criticize is that the apartment was not all the way clean (floors, fridge) Stuart himself was a good host. Green Point is a central area and ideal to explore Cape Town.

    Stuart’s apartment in Green Point was really perfect for our four night stay in the area. The proximity to the V and A Waterfront, grocery stores, etc. made it a wonderful location for exploring the city. The neat architecture of the multi-leveled loft and the views made this one of our favorite places to stay over our three week trip to Cape Town!

    Steph and her two friends spent a week in the main apartment. Her review on Airbnb:
    We were thrilled with our stay at Braeside House and Stuart was a wonderful host. He was fantastic with communicating and addressing our questions – from providing a letter for visas, to accommodating travel delays affecting our arrival time, to even printing out tickets for our visits to Robben Island and Table Mountain. The house was immaculately kept – from the dining room to the fairly spacious bedrooms and bathrooms (with towels and bathrobes!) – and had everything we needed (washer and dryer, kitchen items, etc.). The location is great – a short taxi ride to the V&A Waterfront (or 30 min walk), quiet and pleasant neighborhood. Stuart also provided tip sheets and had several guidebooks in the flat which were super helpful for us in trip planning. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Cape Town and would absolutely recommend others to stay here!

    Ian and Cat stayed in the loft apartment and posted this review on Airbnb:
    A first class stay, Stuart was there to welcome us, helped us settle in and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment. After that he was available if needed but left us to ourselves. A great apartment with fantastic views. There was tea, coffee, milk, orange juice, bread, powder for the washing machine and tablets for the dishwasher making our first day much easier. Good internet and plenty of informative stuff in the apartment. Green Point is a great place to be based for a holiday, supermarkets and plenty of eating places withing walking distance, with the V&A Waterfront about fifteen minutes away on foot. We will be back.

    Michael and Sven spent 5 nights at Braeside House and this is what they said on Airbnb:
    The loft is just great and the pictures on here don’t do it justice. You could spend the whole day on the terrace which has sun from breakfast early in the morning until Braai time in the evening and easily fits four people. The beds are comfy and you’ll find everything you need to make the most out of your Cape Town experience. Many supermarkets, shops, liquor stores, bars and restaurants are just around the corner, travelling in and around Cape Town with your car is easy due to the central location of the apartment. Some of the city’s sights are even just a short walk away. We had a really good time staying at Stuart’s and we’ll be happy to come back soon!

    Stuart war ein super Gastgeber, kurze, aber präzise Kommunikation in der Zeit zwischen Buchung und Ankunft. Nette, persönliche Begrüßung mit Einweisung in alle Gegebenheiten vor Ort. Der kleine Willkommensgruß mit Orangen-Juice, Wasser, Brot und Butter und Eier ersparte ersten Stress 🙂 Die Wohnung ist für 2 Personen perfekt, die Aussicht auf das auch nachts in allen Farben leuchtende Stadion grandios, morgens können ein- und ausfahrende Schiffe beobachtet werden. Es ist kein Problem, zu Fuß zur Waterfront zu gehen, die Rückkehr ist auch sicher, da alles gut beleuchtet ist. Die Küche der Wohnung ist sogar mit einem Kaffeeautomaten randvoll gefüllt mit Kaffeebohnen ausgestattet. Die Bilder und die Beschreibung der Wohnung sind exakt, Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmen. Wir hoffen, bei einer Rückkehr nach Kapstadt wieder bei Stuart wohnen zu können.

    The loft is spacious with great views and located just a short drive from downtown Cape Town and from the V&A Waterfront. Stuart’s communication before our arrival was great and on our arrival he showed us around the apartment and got us settled. A comprehensive pamphlet helped answer some questions (WiFi password etc) as well as give us some information (shops and restaurants) on the immediate surrounding area. Parking and driving on the narrow streets was a bit of an adventure but never a major problem. We enjoyed our stay and would happily book the loft again if we return to Cape Town.

    The Braeside main apartment exceeded my expectations in terms of size, comfort and location. The rooms were pleasantly appointed and the sheets and pillows spotless. Stuart has a superior coffee machine in the kitchen and an array of utensils to suit one’s cooking needs. Quiet neighborhood, central to the V&A waterfront, downtown, restaurants and activities. The Unicab service was exceptional, and the taxis were driven by uniformed cabbies who arrived within 10 minutes of calling. Address was easy to get to. You won’t be disappointed. I’m already planning my next trip and Braeside will be part of it.

    Shirley and her friend stayed in the main apartment and left this review on Airbnb:
    Neighborhood was great though none of the taxi drivers seem to know the area (it’s a tiny street). Use Uber instead – cheaper! It is very close to the waterfront, the beaches in camps bay and a half hour walk to the shops on Long Street in the city center, for reference. The house itself is very spacious and as photographed. We did see the house cleaner and her daughter on a few occasions but they were quiet. Stuart who lives downstairs was very quick to answer our questions and helped us arrange airport transfer so that was fantastic. Only thing that bothered me was the loudness in the loft apartment but it may just be the thinner walls associated with an older house. The gale force winds were much more louder than any noise from other guests. I’d definitely stay here again if I’m back in Capetown. Very homey feel!

    Jenna & Nick spent a week in the main apartment. Their review on Airbnb:
    Staying at the Braeside House was wonderful. The house is actually more beautiful in person than the pictures show, and I thought the pictures were lovely. Stuart is very relaxed, as most of the people we met in South Africa were. He was around to help with any little thing we needed and was also out of sight leaving space for privacy. The housekeeper does live in a space just off the main house and came and went through the house that we rented. It was not a problem at all for us, however if you are looking for total privacy, this may not work for you as there is a modicum of sharing. The bathtubs in both bathrooms were divine for soaking after long days of walking. The location was perfect for a home base for many daily adventures. We walked to the waterfront, The Bo Kaap, downtown and many shops and restaurants nearby. We navigated the whole city by bus and rented a car only one day to go see the Penguins. When I return to Cape Town, I would love to rent from Stuart again.

    We stayed in Stuart’s beautiful and cozy apartment for three nights – the first few days in South Africa and got to know Cape Town from its best side. It is a nice neighborhood, well connected to the myciti Bus lines – we made it to the Apartment from the airport easily. Overall, the Loft is very well equipped, I loved the design and details of the layout of the apartment. However, the best thing is the amazing view from the bed room when waking up in the morning. We will definitely get back here next time we’re in town.

We also have a small starter pack pleased (milk, orange juice, coffee beans), I felt very comfortable when arriving. All in one it was a very nice and comfortable Cape Town experience. Due to its size, the apartment for 3 to 4 guests is highly recommended. We would definitely come back! :-))

    The photos do not do this apartment justice. We stayed three nights in the loft apartment. I was expecting something very cozy. It was actually very spacious with everything you need for a short or extended stay. Stuart is a great host – very accommodating but definitely not intrusive. He has left instructions and helpful information throughout the apartment. Location is great. You do not need a car or taxi to see main sights if you do not mind a walk. We would generally walk to the waterfront to dinner and take a taxi back (80 R in the evening). There are good options just a short walk down the hill as well. Highly recommend.

It was never a problem that they had access to the back part of the apartment and both were happy to help if we had any questions. Literally everything was thought of so there was no need to bother Stuart but I felt I could call on him if needs be. Would happily stay again and recommend in a heart beat.

    The place was truly wonderful. A superb loft conversion, much more spacious than the pictures than the photos suggest, with great views front and back. The beds – including the drop-down – were very comfortable, the bath robes and towels comparable to a 5 star hotel. Though we did not cook much the kitchen was very well equipped, the coffee machine an extra treat and the washing machine and dishwasher unexpected bonuses. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we arrived (milk and bread in the fridge), Stuart was around but never intrusive and the maid, Tererai, very sweet. I would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable and memorable stay in CPT.

    Stuart was there to welcome us after a day of driving and helped us carry our suitcases up the stairs. Saw a couple of other times while we were staying he was always pleasant and helpful.
    The apartment was lovely everything you could need, stunning view and close to shops and restaurants, we especially loved the Deli.

    Greg and his wife stayed in the loft in September. Their review on Airbnb:
    The loft was even more spacious than we expected, and a perfect location from which to explore Cape Town. Stuart was helpful in orienting us when we checked in and gave us plenty of space and privacy to do our own thing. We would definitely return on our next visit to Cape Town!

    Kris & Bram stayed in the main apartment in August. Posted this review on Airbnb:
    Great apartment with more luxury and space than we ever expected. We were also big fan of the coffee machine, helping us getting up in the morning. This apartment has everything, even a massage chair! We were a bit surprised of having live-in staff without being told in advance but we did have enough privacy in the end, so this was okay.

    The Braeside House Loft apartment was great. Stuart was very accommodating in the time that he met us to show us the space. The apartment was larger than I anticipated, with a great living space, dining room and outdoor space. Green Point was a great place for us to be located. Its quick and easy to most parts of the city with a car. Parking was available off the the street which made it easy to not have to look for a space.

    The braeside loft is an incredibly nice place to stay in Cape Town. The view is gorgeous and the apartment itself is top notch! Communication with Stuart was easy and quick. If I’d have to stay in Cape Town again I’d make sure to book this loft in advance!!

    Geoff stayed in the loft apartment in May and has already re-booked for next year. He posted this review on Trip Advisor:
    I stayed in the loft apartment for one month in May/June and have already rebooked for more of the same next year.
    Stuart is an excellent communicator who replies to enquiries speedily answering any questions you may have. Payment is a smooth process.
    On arrival you are supplied with a comprehensive information sheet on the apartment and a guide to local transport, shops, bars and restaurants. Then you are left to enjoy yourself. If you require assistance Stuart or his housekeeper Tarisai- who keeps the place clean- are available as they live in the same building.
    A walk to Main Road and turn right for Green Point, or left for Sea Point both of which have great shops, bars and restaurants. It’s nice to sit looking at the sea at the Waterfront in any of the fine restaurants but do give the local area a visit. It’s well worth it for sheer variety.
    The apartment is quiet day and night. Perfect for relaxation.

    Kandice & Tim posted this review on Airbnb after their stay in the loft:
    Our experience was awesome! After camping for a week it was just what we needed. The location was great, about a mile or so from downtown which was an easy walk. The apartment was very nice and comfortable, and the views were amazing. Stuart also had a few items in the fridge for us since we arrived so late (eggs, bread, OJ)! We enjoyed eating breakfast and occasionally dinner at home, which was exactly why we chose to stay in an apartment like this. For the price, it can’t be beat! Stuart was great, very flexible and easy to work with. The additional parking spot was also nice to have, so we didn’t have to worry about on street parking. Thank you for a great trip!

    Lloyds review on Airbnb:
    Braeside House will become my home away from home for any return trips to Cape Town! The main apartment overlooking the Atlantic Ocean has an authentic old world charm that is both grand and warmly welcoming. The refreshing Cape Town breeze drifts through the apartment to the courtyard garden at the rear, perfect for relaxing with a good book or newspaper. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with a real espresso coffee machine, and Stuart even stocks some essential items in the fridge. The wifi is very reliable. Overall, a great place in a great location. I’ll be back!

    Rika and her family stayed in the main apartment for the whole of February and posted this review on Airbnb:
    We really enjoyed our stay at Braeside House, very much! It couldn’t be any better. Also the apartment is huge and gives everyone enough space to rest. For our child (19 month) it was the best choice because there was nothing danger in the flat. So he felt very comfortable too. The apartment itself stays perfect if you like to walk around (city, v&a, promenade) as you also can use a parking in front of the house and reach all the beaches in a bit. Stuart is a kind and easy going person. If you have any questions he will be there for you otherwise he is not bothering you at all. As the housekeeping and her daughter never disturb our privacy as well as they have to walk trough your apartment. We’re looking forward to stay there again.

    Chris and his partner paid their first visit to Cape Town and left this review on Airbnb:
    We had a wonderful 4 days staying at Braeside House. Stuart was a fabulous host and he remained in constant contact from the time we started the booking process. He quickly responded to confirm availability and gave us excellent directions to the house. Everything was perfectly set-out. Huge bedroom at the front with a monstrous ensuite bathroom with great bath and shower and twin basins. Wifi works well and there is a great TV in the lounge. It’s so close to V&A Waterfront, the ocean and all other places on interest. Camps Bay is 10 mins and a 1.5 hour drive to Cape Point and Good Hope. Honestly, Capetown was brilliant and Braeside complimented everything we wanted to do there. Thanks Stuart.

    Perfect stay! I highly recommend the elegant Braeside House Loft. It exceeded my expectations, as the loft is bigger than it looks on the website, very bright, clean, sunny, breezy and well equipped. The terrace is also very pleasant. The area in Green Point is safe and close to all Cape Town has to offer. I had a chance to visit the bigger apartment: gorgeous! I hope to be able to stay at Stuart’s place soon again.

    Brenda and her extended family from Iowa occupied the main apartment in January. She left these comments on Airbnb:
    Braeside is the place to stay when in Cape Town. It is so very close to the ocean, restaurants, the Victoria and Albert Mall, the soccer stadium and more! Stuart was a wonderful host, giving us advice on which wineries to visit while touring Stellenbosch as well as helping us make arrangements for local transport. The apartment is spacious, well decorated, and comfortable for a larger crowd. There were 9 of us traveling together, and although some stayed at another hostel next door, we would gather at Braeside for breakfast, card games and more. A fabulous place and host!

    Andrew & Letitia stayed in the loft in January before returning to Canada. They put the following on Airbnb:
    The perfect home base for a Cape Town vacation/adventure! I say home base because it really felt like a complete house. For 2 people over 5 days it was more than enough for us to enjoy our time in Cape Town with ease. Stuart was extremely accommodating, even with our changing check-in and check-out times. There was also a cleaner in on 2 of the days so our place was spotless over our stay. Location wise, Green Point is really central to everything and the place is within walking distance to groceries and restaurants. That being said we had a rented car and I believe that is essential to really get to see the city and all the beautiful areas around it. The last few things before I forget is that this loft has amazing views to wake up to and we really enjoyed the style of it. Everything was where it should be kind of like a sailboat. Stuart has gone to great lengths to make sure there is nothing missing.

    Emma and her parents stayed in the main apartment and left this review on Airbnb:
    The apartment is situated in a strategic district, save and close to everything (by car or on foot). To reach it by car and to park, is a little bit demanding because of narrow roads but this is not a real problem. We (3 people) stayed at the main flat, which is very large, with nice decor, comfy and quiet. We enjoyed it a lot and felt at home. Stuart was helpful with our needs. We definitely recommend it.

    I stayed at Stuarts loft for 4 days. It is a great place in a very nice neighbourhood. Just 5 minutes from the V&A Waterfront, 5 minutes drive to long street. You can park your car in front of the apartment. The loft has al the things you will need (coffee machine, oven, dishwasher, WiFi, nice bathroom and a very comfortable bedroom). In the afternoon the roof terrace is fantastic to sit in the sun and drink a cold beer!

    Stuarts apartment is wonderful! The view is amazing and the location is simply perfect. Enough space for 2 people – even for more! Very clean and cozy. We loved it there! Stuart lives downstairs but we haven’t seen him during our stay. Perfect if you need time for yourself, but if you want to have someone local around to spend the evening with, this won’t be the place.

    Lena & Johannes stayed in the main apartment and posted this nice review on Airbnb:
    We fell in love with that place when we first stepped in. It’s even more gorgeous than it appears on the pictures. The apartment offers everything you need and more: a perfectly equipped kitchen, bathrobes, a braai (BBQ) in the backyard and a seaview from one of the bedrooms. It’s nice and safe but also close to beaches and city. The maid who is very nice uses the same entrance and the laundry room in the apartment. So you better use the bathrobe 🙂 Stuart was a great host and very laid-back. He was always there when we needed help.

    Elizabeth posted this review on Airbnb yesterday:
    The home itself was wonderful overall – very spacious and well-kept. There are 2 relatively large bedrooms, each with 2 twin beds, and each with its own bathroom with tub and shower. The main area of the house is quite comfortable as well. Stuart (the host) stayed in a separate basement area while we were there – we rarely saw him but he was always nearby if we had questions. When we arrived there was bread, milk, a few eggs, and coffee which was great. A couple of things to be aware of – the housekeeper and her daughter live in a separate unit in the back of the home, but it shares an entrance and they must walk through the part of the house you are staying in to get in and out. This didn’t bother us much but if you really want privacy this may not be the place for you. Also there is a set of steep stairs leading up to the home from the street so if you have issues with climbing stairs this would be difficult. We loved our time in Cape Town and would stay here again.

It’s also in a great location for walking to restaurants in Green Point and Sea Point.

    Nice place!! Communication with Stuart was easy and he responded to my question immediately and gave phone number of trustful taxi company, as fair taxis might be a problem in Cape Town. Loft apartment was very spacious and extremely well equipped with everything You might need for cooking and convenient living. Private parking in front of house also is very convenient and You can reach all places of Cape Town within minutes. If some day will go back to Cape Town would like to stay there again!

    Nice comments from Rama Geroux posted on AirBnB:
    The Braeside loft is a perfect home base for exploring the city, in one of the best neighborhoods. The views are enough to stay put – very comfortable. The one touch espresso machine is quite convenient. Getting a good wifi signal can be done in the bedroom, or in the stairwell, but is spotty elsewhere. Stuart lives in the lower 2/3rds of the house and was attentive if anything was needed. If you are new to the city, take the ‘Red Bus tour’ to get familiar with the lay of the land, with many sights and attractions! The price seems low when compared to other accommodations. Would stay again for the views alone.

    Nice review from Edyta who stayed in the loft apartment in January 2013 – posted on AirBnB:

    If you’re looking for a place where you can feel like home, the Breaside Loft is exactly what you need. I stayed there with a friend in January 2013 for 7 nights and we both loved it. The loft is absolutely wonderful: super cozy, spacious, clean, and full of light, and the view from the window is amazing. It has everything and even more than you need during your stay! The balcony is a great addition; it is a perfect spot to have a breakfast on a sunny day. Stuart has thought of every detail to make this place feel like home (i.e. espresso machine, fluffy towels and robes, slippers), and we did feel like it! We also appreciated the little welcome food-kit left for us in the fridge. The location is more than perfect, close to both Waterfront and Seapoint. There is a little shop and a cafe just around the corner, a supermarket 5 minutes walk from the apartment, and plenty of restaurants within a walking distance. Stuart is a very kind and helpful person, very easy to communicate with; he responded immediately to our booking request and made the whole booking process an easy one. If we go to Cape Town ever again, we will definitely choose to stay in the Loft again!

    I was in Cape Town for August and was extremely happy to have chosen Braeside House for my accommodation. It really has everything that I was looking for–great Green Point location, off-street parking, uncapped wireless internet, a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Very comfortable place to stay and entertain guests. Also was a good value for money, which is always key while traveling.

    Plus, Stuart (the owner) was terrific. In the first week, there was a problem with my refrigerator working and it was fixed the same day. A great guy.

    I will look forward to my next visit to Braeside House!
