The Perks of a Luxury Self-Catering Holiday in Cape Town

More and more people travel to South Africa every year for vacations and holidays. In fact, this has been a developing trend for many years now. However, more and more people have changed their preference of accommodations by choosing self-catering accommodation in Cape Town rather than hotels.

Quite a number of people don’t like using hotels, though it has never really occurred to most of them to rent a self-catering apartment and they would never have known where to start looking. Self-catering guesthouses and apartments are some of the best forms of accommodation you can get today.

Self-Catering accommodation in Cape Town for family vacation

Very few hotels can accommodate a family of four or five people in one room. You will often need to pay for an extra room which makes the prices extremely expensive. Most hotels also have very strict rules about taking a drink or food up to the rooms. Kids can also be noisy and it certainly won’t be a proper holiday for you because you will be waiting for someone to complain about noise from next door.

People who have stayed in guesthouses and apartments in South Africa will agree to the fact that they are luxurious and very practical. It almost feels like having your property in Cape Town. There is a lot of self-catering accommodation in the city. A search on Google will pull a list of sites where self-catering apartments are being offered for rent. It happens that most apartments are private rents by expatriates who have bought property in South Africa and simply want to rent it out to cover the running cost. There are also companies that have built self-catering apartments for rent.

You will find guesthouses with lots of luxury bathrooms so that you wouldn’t have to sleep on a double-decker bed. You will also save a lot of money because each unit has a kitchen, which means that you don’t have to go to a restaurant to eat every night.
