This is an entirely new concept for the V&A Waterfront, sleeping onboard a custom built HouseBoat berthed in the Cape Grace Marina, adjacent to the Cape Grace Hotel. The most central secure location in the V&A Waterfront. Walk everywhere in complete safety, anytime of the day or night.

HouseBoats are not CruiseShips, they are compact spaces, with water tanks, with electrical pumps for toilets and showers, batteries for power, small storage areas but super fun and functional.


Sleeps 2 Adults.

Private Double cabin up forward with en-suite bathroom (heads)

What is onboard:

Life onboard a small vessel is quite a special experience and space constraints do apply so plan ahead and pack accordingly.

Please use soft or collapsible bags for your luggage to make stowing them away much easier as space onboard is limited.

Where to meet:

Plan to check in at the Waterfront HouseBoat office: Ground Floor, Marina Centre, West Quay Rd, V&A Waterfront. Free parking available at the Waterfront Houseboats Office. Best to Uber or get a taxi. We can store your skateboard if you arrive on one.
