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), the historic Long Street Baths  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.

The St Martini Gardens complex has 24 hour security, a full-time building manager and its own beautiful private garden with a large pool.

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. Go to our Downloads page for more information on Pahl, Bauhaus and the design of St Martini Gardens.

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 (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.
