Whether you're young, old, or somewhere in between, an apartment in Cape Town is the ideal place to call home. Kenilworth's location, amenities and choice of properties make it one of the best southern suburbs.

Cape Town has a reputation for record-breaking home prices and some of the world's most luxurious properties, but that doesn't mean that the Mother City is unaffordable.

The Southern Suburbs offer comfortable living, great amenities and a great community vibe - and if there's one area in the south of Cape Town that we love, it’s Kenilworth.
