Water restrictions in Cape Town and how they might impact on your stay

How The Water Restrictions Might Affect Your Stay in Cape Town

Some of our property managers are taking the water restrictions very seriously. The Cape has very little usable water left and the situation is dire. Everyone needs to do their part in preserving every drop they can – this includes tourists visiting our shores. They have put many measures in place to ensure we do what we can to help the situation. Some of these measures will unfortunately affect your stay.

  • Swimming pools might not be full
  • Jacuzzis might not be functioning
  • Gardens might not be looking lush and green, but rather the grass might be yellow with fewer plants & flowers
  • The bed linen will only be changed every 3-4 days, instead of every 2 days
  • Your housekeeper will wash the dishes by hand, instead of using the dishwasher

Ways you can do your part when visiting Cape Town

  • No bathing
  • Short showers only, switching water off while soaping, and limiting to 2.5 minutes maximum! Or even better, shower with a friend!
  • Switching tap off while brushing teeth
  • Only flushing toilet when absolutely necessary

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi Debbie, My stay in the apartment was excellent. The actual apartment was lovely, spacious and had a beautiful view. My friends and I were able to make good use of the balcony and I felt that it was excellent value for money. Thanks for all your help sorting everything out and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone visiting Cape Town.
