UPDATE: CoCT has now imposed Level 5 water restrictions from 1st September 2017. These maintain the target for water usage at only 87 litres per person per day, but add further usage controls by lowering pressure to certain areas at various times. Please do your best to conserve water – see the notices around the building for suggestions. Please report any drips or leaks to your agent / landlord or the building manager.
We have clean fresh ground-water available that can be used for flushing toilets, watering plants or washing purposes. The tap outside near the B-Block bin area or the tap in the garden near the back of B-Block provides this water.
Welcome to St Martini Gardens
St Martini Gardens is very centrally situated, close to the city centre as well as shops and restaurants, and most of the city is easily accessible on foot.
- The Company’s Garden with the Iziko SA Museum and Planetarium, the SA National Gallery, the Houses of Parliament and the recently revamped Company’s Garden Restaurant is just over the road.
- The Labia Cinema (the oldest independent cinema in South Africa) and the Gardens Shopping Centre are within easy walking distance.
- The MyCiti bus route which serves the whole city and its surrounding areas passes one block away (closest stop: Michaelis)
- The City Sightseeing “hop on / hop off” tour bus stops almost outside our main entrance.
St Martini Gardens was designed by Pius Pahl, the last architect to qualify at the Bauhaus, Germany’s revolutionary and influential design academy. Pahl moved to Stellenbosch in the 1950s after marrying his South African wife. He started his own practice and received many awards locally and internationally for his work.

Are you looking for a flat in St Martini Gardens?
St Martini Gardens is a sectional title scheme: all the units are separately owned and there is no central sales or letting agent. The Trustees and Building Manager do not know about available flats. To find flats for sale or to let try Gumtree, Property 24, Cape Breaks or the other established Cape Town estate agents and websites. We are aware of rental deposit scams and recommend that prospective tenants work through a reputable agent (and check that the advertiser really belongs to the agent) and do not pay a deposit until they have seen the flat. They may contact the Managing Agent or Building Manager (see Contacts page) to check the bona fides of a prospective landlord.
