Lawhill Luxury Apartments: The Perfect Perch for a Cape Town Stay.
See other featured accommodations in our Where to Stay in South Africa directory.
When spending more than a week in Cape Town, it’s worth making plans to feel completely at home. Lawhill Luxury Apartments down on the V&A Waterfront offer the perfect perch for settling in, seeing the sights, and living like a temporary local in the city.
Our unit: on the four floor of the Lawhill B building at the far right; Table Mountain behind.
As we travel, settling in to a fully furnished unit with a kitchen and laundry set transforms our trip from “travels” to “living.”
Secure parking, helpful staff at the reception desk, and tastefully modern furnishings with a classy flair set us instantly at ease, and after spending a series of nights centrally located to urban spas, tasty coffee shops, and ever-breathtaking views of that iconic city skyline, we’re happy to echo the recommendations of guests who’ve given Lawhill a five star rating as one of the top hotels in Cape Town.
Walking to the nearest grocery store, picking up items for a home-cooked meal, leaving later for a coffee date or people watching or adventure-finding in the busy Cape Town bustle becomes easy at Lawhill Luxury Apartments.
Walking distance to the V&A Waterfront shops…
Fully stocked kitchen and room to spread out…
Night skies and city lights…followed by daytime trips to the nearby V&A Waterfront.
Our Favorite Memories: Walking hand-in-hand on the waterfront, heading to nearby Urban Beauty Spa for a couple’s massage, listening to street musicians, and returning to our spacious home-away-from-home to cook dinner, drink wine, watch movies, do laundry (Ted’s favorite!), make calls to friends at home, sort airfare plans, and step out on the balcony to take in the forever-remembered view of Cape Town.
Wifi: 1000/MB month
Our Favorite Amenities: Secure car parking in the city, in-unit washer and dryer, full kitchen for home cooked meals, plus the easy-order take out menus and DVD borrowing library (not that we ordered tiramisu while watching Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon singing country music or anything…)
Setting: Easy walking to the V&A Waterfront and its shops, spas, and cafes; shared views of the private waterfront at the neighboring One & Only, and stunning backdrop against Table Mountain.
