Hello friends!

I'm a 30 year old planning to spend 2-3 months in Cape Town with my fiance starting in early March. I'd love to have an insider's opinion on a good safe neighborhood where we can rent an apartment. We are young and active, so deep in the suburbs would probably not be ideal. Is there a neighborhood in the city center/by the beach/etc that would both not be prohibitively expensive (we have money but aren't millionaires) and would serve as a good starting point for exploring CT?

Thanks in advance!

Hi How's it?

If you want the Beach I would try Camps Bay, slightly cheaper is Hout Bay but it is a bit further out from central Cape Town.

If you want easy access to the bars, restaurants and shops etc I would just go for it and rent an place in the V&A Waterfront.

If you are driving you could maybe go into the suburbs and I would live in Higgovale which is a lovely little place not too far out with nice restaurants and bars.

When are you looking to go?

Good Luck

What is your budget? .....and you might be going there at the wrong time (towards the world cup) prices will be sky rocketing very soon.

For 2-3 months i think you need an apartment/room to rent.Prices can range from US$150/mo to US$1000/mo depending on where you want to stay.

You can post an ad on gumtree to look for a house share or room to rent.

Good luck.
