Child friendly holiday house or apartment in Cape Town (repeat request)

Jump to last reply

To my surprise I did not receive a single reply to my earlier request so I thought I'd repeat it with a little more background info.
Together with my family (four adults, two young children) I will be visiting my daughter who lives and studies in Tamboerskloof, CPT next March. Since she will be working during the day, we'd like to spend as much time with her after work as possible. Since we will have a 3 year old and 15 month old (both are boys) with us we think a self catering house will be our best option.
A. we don't have to feel awkward if the kids are too noisy or crying at night and B. we can have a choice to either prepare our own meals or to go out for lunch or dinner when we feel like it. The kids still nap during the afternoon and of course go to bed early at night.

After doing some research I found that most holiday houses or apartments are in the more touristic parts of town near the ocean, e.g. Camps Bay, Clifton, Houtbay etc. Although the first two are not that far from T'kloof, we would prefer an area where we would just be able to walk to a neighborhood restaurant or simply go out for a quick coffee or a drink at night. We know Cape Town quite well ourselves, but unfortunately I have not yet succeeded in finding a place that is in the Tamboerskloof / Gardens area so I was hoping that the Fodor's community could help me with this.
A pool would be nice of course, as the weather in March can still be hot, but we need to consider safety aspects too with two kids who do not swim yet.
We would like three double bedrooms and the possibility of having two cots and high chairs.

Any suggestions are most welcome. Thanks!!!
