House rules

While we do not exclude children as guests, Pembroke is a very sophisticated property designed with discerning adults in mind. Having said that, we have welcomed children on number of occasions & we offer child equipment service including cots, strollers and other needs.

Water is a very scarce commodity in the Cape - now 3rd year of draught. Please be ultra conscious of it's use.

The Marina is a place of calm where rowdiness, parties & loud music are not tolerated - please of conscious of this

Owner's reply:
Thank you so much for this fabulous review. We love Pembroke 403 ourselves and, from the outset, set about creating the stunning interiors that the amazing setting deserves. In this regard, all of our furnishings are bespoke and we used local craft workers including glass artist Simon Croft, cabinet makers and leather designers. All of the artwork is original, personally chosen & locally sourced. We can't ever say enough about our team at Pembroke. Ozzie is an absolute star who would stand on his head all day long for us and for our guests - we love him to bits as do our guests while Fibby keeps the place in ship shape and spotlessly clean. We love our Poggenpohl kitchen there and feel it is important to have it as fully equipped as our guests might have in their own homes. But it is the views from all our spaces and balconies that set the place alight. When our son arrived for the first time, he was blown away despite having seen lots of photos. "Connemara meets Manhattan" were his first words. The sea and mountain views and contemporary styling reminded him of the beautiful west of Ireland where we are privileged to live. Over the years, we have developed a deep love of South Africa and especially Cape Town and it's hinterland. There is such beauty all around, creativity knows no bounds, the food culture is so exciting and the wines are world class - all at unbelievable prices locally and we are always happy to give local recommendations and itineraries. The 'Winelands' are all within driving distance of Cape Town and we are always happy to give advice & arrange appointments for any of our wine-loving guests. So much to do - the V&A Waterfront, walking tours, Table Mountain, Robben Island, Hermanus and the whales, Hermanus and the whales, Cape Point, golf, beaches, hiking...... and so much more. We hope that we will able to welcome you and your family back to Pembroke 403 at another time - ye were a real pleasure to deal with.

It was a pleasure to have you come and stay at Pembroke for the Christmas holiday period. You were wonderful guests and enjoyed many conversations with you and your Dad before and during your stay. You very clearly enjoyed Cape Town very much as evidenced by your decision to remain for a longer period to study and gain life experience in this wonderfully vibrant city with a fascinating cultural history. Thank you for your kind words and sending every good wish to you, your Mum & Dad and your brother for 2018.

Greetings Fredric and thank you so much for your kind words. It was a real pleasure to connect with you from the outset. We know the Cape quite well at this stage having been coming & going for almost 20 yrs and just love coming here. We really like our guests to get some insights into the real Cape and not just the typical tourist trails. Because we import many of the Cape's most exciting wines into Ireland, we have built wonderful friendships will all of our winemakers who are always happy to welcome our guests. I'm so glad you enjoyed staying at Pembroke 403. We know how very special it is and it's like a dream, even to ourselves, each time we arrive and see the views that appear as we walk in. We constantly strive to have everything as perfect as possible and always anxious to hear of any shortcomings or any ideas for improvement no matter how small. It would be lovely to meet you one day, either back in Cape Town or in the Galway in the west of Ireland, the place we lucky to call our home. Warm regards to you both. Éilís

Incredible setting
Nov 2016

Cape Town Waterfront is one of the world's best. The view from Pembroke 403 reminds you off Monte Carlo as you look over the millionaire's yachts across the harbour out to sea.

Reviewed 17 Nov 2016

Owner's reply:
Thank you for this - the setting overlooking the Marina with all the amazing yachts and the entire Waterfront with all its activity is indeed truly spectacular. And if you get bored with that view, there is also Table Mountain from the southern balcony. We hope to have you back at Pembroke 403 sometime in 2017.
