Thank you Sheri for your great review.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and all that Pembroke 403 offered to you.
We constantly strive for ultimate perfection & it is so nice to get such positive feedback.
Hopefully we might even see you again on another trip.

Thank you for your lovely comments.
Im so glad you all enjoyed everything at Pembroke 403. Even for ourselves when we get a chance to be there, it is a really special place in such a prefect location.
You were a pleasure to deal with from the outset and it was a privilege to be able to help you have a great trip to Cape Town.
Hopefully, you will manage to get back to Cape Town in the not too distant future as your time there as a family was quite short and there is just so much to see and do. Or maybe ye might even get to Ireland sometime where there is also so much to see and do!
With warm wishes

"Beautiful, secure apartment with amazing views..."
We stayed at Pembroke 403 for a week in December, we were greeted by pure luxury...the apartment is very spacious and well furnished with beautiful artworks on the walls. It is situated in a very secure complex, with very efficient security personnel. It has two lounges and having three TV sets - one in the main bedroom, meant we didn't have to fight for a remote with our little ones..and there is a collection of great books and novels for those lazy afternoons...and it has great views from the balconies....one of the Waterfront and the other of the Table Mountain. My little ones enjoyed watching seals from the balcony...and fireworks on New Year's Eve...
It's a few minutes walk to the V&A and the One & Only and because we were three families booked around the same complex, it was easy and safe to walk to other apartments even at night.
Eilis and her team were very helpful in getting us settled...and we would recommend this place to our friends and family.
Thank you Sthombe for your kind remarks and so glad you all enjoyed your stay.
I'm glad you mentioned the books. We, especially my husband Séamus, are great book collectors of all sorts and we like to have these available for our guests. It's nice when on holiday to have some special interest books on the area to peruse. We also like the idea of having novels that can be swapped - easier than bringing a full bag of books too and fro by air.
Also nice that you found the range of TVs to be useful and it means children can watch what they want either on TV or DVD while leaving the adults in peace to watch something else. Or maybe one wants to watch sport and another a movie...
We ourselves love to sit on the Marina balcony and watch those slothful seals lazing about below while the young ones can be very playful in the water.
There is just so much to see and do from just doing nothing and relaxing to many types of activity in the immediate vicinity.
I'm so sorry we don't have availability for the Jazz Festival this year but hope to be able to welcome you back to Pembroke 403 in the not too distant future.
All the best for 2014.

Many thanks for this, Andy
I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay at Pembroke 403.
The location and the views are as good as there is anywhere in the world and we have tried to make the interiors a worthy match for this.
I'm very pleased about your comments on security as I think this is the biggest fear for first time visitors to the Cape. Cape Town is as safe as any city in the world while the Waterfront itself is particularly safe and a short, easy walk from Pembroke. As you say, the complex, of which Pembroke is a part, is totally secure.
Cape Town is a great city to visit and offers as much to do for both first time and returning visitors. No wonder the New York Times has named Cape Town as the Number 1 Place to Go 2014.
Have a great year ahead.

"Wonderful Experience - Truly a 5-star Accommodation!"
My husband and I traveled to Cape Town with another couple. We found Pembroke 403 via a search engine and are so thrilled we chose to stay here. The owners were very easy to communicate with during our booking and very helpful in suggesting places to visit and things to do. The location of the apartment is perfect - close enough to the V&A Waterfront but very quiet and peaceful with amazing views from all the windows - both the view of Table Mountain from the back and the Marina view from the front. The apartment is very well equipped and very well decorated - exactly as you see in the pictures. Very comfortable place to relax after seeing the town during the day. We will definitely be back!
Thank you Lisa & Dave for your kind words.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Pembroke 403. Given your extremely busy lives, I'm sure it provided a very welcome haven of peace and tranquility when you were not out and about. Ye certainly packed as much as was humanly possible into your short few days but there is still so much more to explore when you find some time to come back to Cape Town.
Meanwhile, I hope you both have a wonderful 2014.

"The Best Place to Stay in Cape Town!"
Our family has traveled to many places around the world, and Pembroke 403 was truly one of the loveliest accommodations we ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious apartment, its contemporary deco… More
Thank you for your great review.
It was a real pleasure to interact with you by phone & email right from the moment of your initial enquiry and I feel we almost shared your time in Cape Town. You certainly packed so much in and we were delighted that you were able to follow some of the itineraries that we so enjoy ourselves when we are in Cape Town.
Pembroke 403 is our real treasure and we are always especially thrilled to share it with people like yourself, Barbara and your two daughters, Juliana & Isabella. I hope the memories of both Pembroke 403 and of your Cape & Cape Town experiences will live with you all for many a day.
Gura math agaibh.

"Luxury home away from home..."
The entire experience staying at Pembroke 403 was very enjoyable. Our flight into Cape Town was delayed, but the management company was keeping track of us and knew we would be late checking in. The apartment itself is spectacular! Comfortable and spacious, and the views are just magnificent. It was a wonderful place to kick back after a hectic day of seeing Cape Town. Eilis and Seamus were very helpful and informative and happy to help with information about Cape Town. The cafe at the gym is a short walk away and was very handy for morning coffee and breakfast. We found the area to be safe and the usual caution re: big cities is required when moving around the city. Access to all the Cape Town spots was easy, either a short walk or drive away. We arranged a taxi on our first night for a dinner in the city and were able to use him all week long. Pembroke 403 offers a great alternative to a hotel stay!
Hi Cameron, Renata
We are both so glad you enjoyed Pembroke 403 as well as your Cape Town trip so much. I trust you had a safe journey back.
We look forward to welcoming back to Pembroke 403 at another time in the not too distant future. Meanwhile, keep well and have a wonderful Christmas.

Many thanks Philippe for your kind remarks about your stay at our beautiful 5 star property at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
I am so glad you enjoyed it as much we would have liked for you. We do try very hard to make our guests stay at Pembroke 403 as enjoyable and seamless as possible.
I am also particularly glad that you emphasised the high level of safety - it is perhaps the one thing that people who have never visited Cape Town have some concerns about. Since we started to visit the Cape in 1998, we have never experienced any security issues though, as anywhere in the world, one should always exercise common sense. The fact that Pembroke 403 is within a very short walking distance of so many amenities for all ages makes it a perfect location highlighted by the fact that you were totally comfortable in letting your 12 and 15 year old boys come and go from the Waterfront.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Pembroke 403 in the not too distant future.
With every good wish.
