Our apartment is situated close to the beach in Muizenberg, Cape Town.
We are on the 9th floor and is serviced with 2 lifts.
It is a 2 bedroom apartment with a lounge and dining area and 2 bathrooms.
The one bathroom has a roll-in shower with a rolling shower chair that can be used. The shower has one grab bar. Shower has a handheld showerhose that is mounted on the wall at an easy height.
The toilet has access from the front only with grab bars at the back of toilet. The width is just wide enough for a manual chair.
The main bedroom has a king size bed with a electric swing hoist for easy access on and off the bed.
The second bedroom has a queen size bed that can be used for extra 2 people.
The lounge has an electric swing hoist that allows you to sit on a recliner that stands on a plinth with lock wheels for better viewing through the window. There is another recliner and lounge chairs as well.
Kitchen has access, but no counters for wheelchair user. Turn area only at entrance corner.
The apartment allows you a panoramic view of the whole False Bay, with the world famous Surfers Corner a stone throw away. We are 2 minutes roll and stroll from the beach. Arrangements can be made for assisted swimming or surfing.
This is the perfect base to explore and experience Cape Town and the surrounding sights. Roll and stroll the famous Muizenberg historical mile or sit down at one of our many coffee shops and enjoy watching the surfers ride the waves..... or take a leisurely drive out to one of our many wine estates, sip wine, or try our famous craft beers.
We can get around quite comfortably around the village and take walks for quite a few kilometres around the area. Not all areas and restaurants are accessible, but we will provide all information of accessibility. Most restaurants are very willing to assist wherever possible.
Cleaner can be arranged.
Accessible transport can be arranged or hand control cars can be rented from the bigger rental companies at the airport. Public transport in our area is not accessible.
PS. Will add more photos later as layout of some of the rooms have changed and they also do not show the hoists and accessible bathroom!
We love to travel and together have been to Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Florence, Venice and areas around these cities. Would love to visit any of these cities again as well as Prague, UK and Germany. But we are open to anywhere in the world!

In the area

Great restaurants and coffee shops just a stroll away, wonderful walks on broadwalk and famous Surfers Corner, known as one of the best places to learn to surf. Kalk Bay is an 2.5km stroll away, past well know historic buildings along the sea( Kalk Bay garnered the title of ‘coolest neighbourhood in the world’ on a recent Forbes list!) Then still Table Mountain, Wine Estates and so much more!
