Travel South Africa: A Waterfront Stay at Cape Town’s Luxurious Lawhill Apartments

As the second most populous city in South Africa, Cape Town is a hub of luxury and adventure travel that attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. So it’s no wonder that the city has previously been listed as No. 2 on Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Beach Cities in the World as well as by National Geographic.

In their own words:

Lawhill offers fantastic self catering holiday accommodation on the V&A Waterfront that is simply ideal for those who want to relax in style in Cape Town. If luxury and comfort is what you are after then you have definitely come to the right place.


For all of Lawhill’s myriad features, what we like best is actually just outside the property or, to be more specific, its close proximity to everything Cape Town has to offer. It’s ideally located near virtually everything!

The apartments are situated within easy walking distance to the V&A waterfront (with plenty of shops + restaurants), Two Oceans aquarium, Long Street, the famous Table Mountain cable car, Sea Point promenade, Clifton beach, Camps Bay restaurants and Robben Island ferry departure point. All of which means that, if you’re planning to stay within the city during your vacation, you probably won’t even need a rental car.

Not to mention, the entire property overlooks Cape Grace Marina – filled with luxury yachts available for charter. Not a bad view to wake up to every morning during your stay!

  1. We stayed at Lawhill earlier this year after our safari and absolutely loved it! It feels quiet and secluded on the canal, but you’re just steps from the V&A Waterfront. The location can’t be beat! We felt like celebrities staying there!
