What our tenants say about us

Good place to start an adventure in South Africa.
Very efficient and friendly staff, they do not hesitate to give their best to make you feel at home, they even provide any additional documentation required when applying for the desired visa.

Stayed with rentaroom for 3 months. Was in a great location and the accommodation was pretty standard student style accommodation in a shared house. The room was spacious and the communal areas were cleaned on a regular basis. Rentaroom were easy to get in touch with throughout my stay, the staff were friendly and extremely quick and helpful with responding to any issues that arose while we were there!

I absolutely loved living in 49 Milton St via Rent A Room in Cape Town.  The whole process was very seamless and when I wanted to move to a different room for reasons none other than wanting to be in a room that got early morning sun, Sean Walpole and the whole team were incredibly helpful and accommodating.  I have recommended their housing to multiple other students and interns coming to South Africa and they truly have a house and room type for anyone.  Whether you want a large house of 20 rooms or a small intimate house of only 3-4 people, Rent A Room is should be your first and last stop in your search.
