Directions to Whale Watchers Lovely Seaside Apartments

From Cape Town International Airport
Exit the parking lot and proceed along the N2 highway following the signs towards Cape Town for about 10 - 12 minutes. As you approach the base of Table Mountain the highway splits in two - keep left, turning onto the Muizenberg M3 highway. Continue on this highway through the suburb of Bishop's Court, passing the turn-offs to Wynberg and Constantia. About 20 - 25 minutes after having left the airport (out of rush hour traffic) you get to the end of the M3 Muizenberg highway in the form of a T-junction. Turn left here and then right at the next T-junction.

Now follow your nose along the coastal road passing through Westlake [you’ll see a Fire Station and small shopping centre on your right about 1km from the T-junction]. Continue on this road through 3 sets of traffic lights [after the second set of lights you’ll see a sign indicating that you are entering the suburb of Muizenberg].

Shortly after this, at the fourth set of traffic lights, turn left onto the R310 that goes under the railway bridge and take the first right turn into Beach Road. After 20metres turn right into Melrose Road [you’ll see a Whale Watchers sign here]. After 50metres look out for our office on your left, number S005 where you may collect your keys and settle your account.

IMPORTANT: Our office is open between 9:00am and 5:00pm weekdays and 09:00am and 12:00pm on Saturdays. If you are due to arrive outside of our office hours, please let us know beforehand and we will leave your keys at the security desk in the Empire Building, Beach Rd [opposite Muizenberg Main Beach]. When you arrive please inform the security guard which Whale Watchers Apartment you are booked into and they will give you a sealed envelope containing your keys and directions on how to get to your apartment.
