We’re making a sudden move for a fairly short period of time to Cape Town. We’ll be staying for 3 months and month-to-month rentals are either insanely expensive or very hard to come by. Most places are 6 months or more. We managed to find a couple of rentals that fit the bill, but they’re mostly in the Big Bay area. One of the places we’re interested in is an apartment in Grande Bay. Any comments on the safety of the area, considering we’re moving with 7 month old baby and 60+ mother-in-law in tow?
Also, how will the commute be to the Belville area, specifically the office park next to the Protea Hotel in Jip De Jager? Google Maps seems to recommend the back routes through Durbanville and (during peak traffic) says it’ll be around 30 minutes drive. Can I trust it, seeing as how crazy Cape Town traffic is?
