With genuine 1940's furniture and all mod cons for self catering, this multilevel apartment offers complete luxury for two, comfort for four, five at a squeeze! Right in the heart of the city. Two bathrooms, mountain views, balcony, parking, gym, Internet and TV. Close to attractions, shops and restaurants.

Boligen
The "Mutual Building" in which you will be staying is a famous example of art deco (check it out on Wikipedia!) with neo-classical features, that is known internationally and has been the subject of academic research. The high ceilings, ornate marble trims and original artwork all reflect the ambitions of the original owners: The South African Mutual Life Assurance Society, now known simply as the "Old Mutual". This apartment has the advantage of exclusive access to a south-facing balcony, looking at Table Mountain, the cityscape, and the distant Hottentots Holland mountains.

Inside, the apartment is luxurious for two, with the private ensuite bedroom and a multi-level living space; the mezzanine level has a curtained, comfortable king-sized sofa bed that can accommodate two more; a small side room with a single bed can accommodate yet one more guest or can be used as a dressing room.

The apartment has examples of original 1940s furniture and comfortable and comprehensively restored art deco seating in the living area. Despite this, all the modern facilities you might require are there.

Please be aware that you are thinking of staying right in the city centre, and so there is some noise at night. However, the apartment is at the back of the building so it does not suffer noise from busy Darling Street just outside the main door.

We have recently finished installing air conditioning, which cools (and heats) the entire apartment. On the other hand, a hot summer day with balmy evenings is part of the Cape Town experience!

Gæsteadgang
The common areas of the building include the front and side entrance, the atrium, and the lifts. The marble-decorated banking hall and the Frescoe Room (check this out on Wikipedia - just search there for "Mutual Building") are private but can be opened by special arrangement. The Directors Suite has recently been acquired by a private owner.

There is a gymnasium on the first level and the management office is on Mezzanine level "B" if you have any problems with the building itself.

You have one parking place if you require it, right at the bottom of the ramp leading down to the basement. But note that there is insufficient headroom for a tall SUV - compacts are OK. But see notes elsewhere about the proximity of local attractions, you don't really need a car while you are staying at our apartment unless you want to use it as a base for touring (which is OK! you will pass the heavy traffic trying to get into the city as you drive out, and vice versa!).

Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke
The apartment will be cleaned and beds will be made before you arrive. There are plenty of towels and bathroom basics . Please note that the apartment is fully serviced every Thursday, between about 0830 and 1330. If you are coming for a long stay, bed linen and towels will be changed then. But there is a washing machine and dishwasher, so you should be able to keep clean and organised in the interim.

There is a small wall safe in the bedroom where you can secure your cash and valuables while you are out in town.

ADSL Internet access is available at no additional cost.

Beliggenhed

Cape Town, Western Cape, Sydafrika

Cape Town city centre is a vibrant place during the day, and has entertainment for all during the evening. A wide choice of restaurants, shops and facilities.

Just watch out for the famous South-Easter wind, known locally as the "Cape Doctor", because it can REALLY blow hard. As compensation, it brings the equally famous "Table cloth" to table mountain, and when it blows it is well worth a ride to the cable car station to get close to the billowing clouds!

We are a retired couple originally from the UK, living in or near Cape Town for 16 years. We have been renting property since 2001. We thoroughly enjoy hosting people here in Cape Town and Ann has qualified as an official tourism guide to Cape Town and the local areas. Andy enjoys building and the apartment became available five years ago when he finished building our new house in the country. We both enjoy camping, old heritage buildings, the wild areas of South Africa, and revelling in the hospitality of the winelands (that's where the new house is ... !). You can see more about the Mutual Building (14 Darling Street, where the apartment is located) on Wikipedia if you simply search (on Wikipedia) for "Mutual Building" - go there, it's worth it because it is an amazing building! We have family in Liverpool and we visit as often as possible to watch the grandchildren growing up. We have recently added our small house in Liverpool to AirBnB, and it attracts a lot of enquiries. Our daughter Kate will look after you if you are going there, but we are in touch with you all of the way.

Under dit ophold
We live about one hour's drive north of Cape Town but we will meet all guests at the apartment; we do not normally offer to meet at the airport as we do not have a large vehicle - there are plenty of taxis and there is an economical shuttle bus which gets you within four or five blocks of our building, at the terminus at the Civic Centre.

If you would like a walking tour of the city centre, Ann will be pleased to assist (depending on other commitments). She has qualified as an official tourism guide to the city and the winelands (specialising in wine).

We enjoy 4x4 outings, and if you ever dreamt of driving (literally!) to the top of a mountain we can assist you there. The Matroosberg rises to 2250m (7300ft) and there is a long 4x4 trail right to the top. That's just one idea!
