Cape Town is a beautiful city, which has been voted one of the top tourist destinations in the world. The diverse city is a charming mix of first world comfort with its own unique character. Going the self- catering route means that you will discover all the secret spots the locals love as well as the well-known highlights. When you are in a hotel and all your meals are provided you don’t have the opportunity to really go out and discover the city, which means in some ways you miss out on a lot. Each of Cape Town Holiday Apartments well-appointed, beautiful self-catering rentals is ideally positioned for you to discover different elements of the alluring and upbeat city.
From the trendy beach-side bars located along the golden sands of the famous Camp’s Bay beach, to the tiny, eclectic cafes dotted all over the city itself, easy to miss but unforgettable once they are found, there is an abundance of restaurants, bars, bistros and cafes to choose from. Self-catering accommodation also means that you don’t have to return to the hotel at meal times. Once you are out and about in the city you can stay there, and experience everything it has to offer. Cape Town has a very active night life, with a range of clubs and bars available, to keep you dancing from dawn until dusk!
There are also a number of markets springing up all over Cape Town, selling delicious homemade produce, fashionable clothes and other goods. On Saturday pop down to the famous Neighbourgoods Market at the beautiful Old Biscuit Mill, and make sure that you try all the tasty food on offer- from olive tapenades to scrumptious brownies. You can also buy beautiful jewellery and handmade clothes, and visit the specialist camera store. Cape Town Holiday Apartments rentals are ideally positioned, with many apartments located close to Cape Town’s CBD and nearby to the Woodstock area. There is another well-known market in Hope Street, which also sells tasty food and trendy clothes, and you could even take a drive around the coast to Hout Bay, where you can sit on the beach and munch fish and chips and feed the opportunistic sea gulls and pop into the organic Bay Market.
Self- catering accommodation in Cape Town is a more affordable route to go. Food in South Africa is generally quite cheap in comparison to other places in the world, and there are numerous supermarkets around, to make grocery shopping easy. While you are in Cape Town, make sure you try some South African recipes- there are a number of traditional favourites, from boerewors rolls cooked on the braai, to a divine milktart, koeksisters and the all-time favourite- malva pudding. Pop down to the harbour in Kalk Bay and watch the fisherman haul in their catch, and take home some fresh fish for dinner-the local favourite is snoek. Cape Malay curries are an old Cape Town classic, which are easy to make and absolutely delicious. Try a bunny chow, and serve the rich curry in a hollowed out loaf of bread.
Cape Town Holiday Apartments self-catering accommodation options provide a budget-friendly, flexible alternative to traditional catered accommodation options. Take the opportunity to live like a local, and really explore and familiarise yourself with the remarkable city which has so much to offer.
