The University of Cape Town (UCT) is a major source of this demand, especially for apartments to rent in Rondebosch and Obs, which are served by the “Jammie” shuttle service to campus. However, there are also many other tertiary institutions in these areas, while the presence of many of Cape Town’s top schools also drives demand for houses to rent.

For students, rooms to rent are available at rentals from around R4500 a month plus electricity, while three and four-bedroom townhouses and family homes to rent start at around R18 000 a month

The heritage suburbs of Bishopscourt and Constantia are among Cape Town’s most affluent areas, still characterised by huge oak trees, exceptional views, and stately historic homes in large grounds with room for tennis courts and stables. They are home to a string of wine estates and award-winning restaurants and rentals are relatively high as there is a large corporate component to the market.

Indeed, many houses here are to rent by the day, at rentals from R4500 per day. Monthly house rentals range from around R20 000 all the way up to R100 000 a month or even more. But there are also many one and two-bedroom cottages to rent at rentals from R8500 and around R16 000 a month respectively, making them accessible to younger residents.

The Southern Suburbs have many attractions for nature lovers including the Constantia Valley wine farms, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the Table Mountain National Park and the Tokai and Newlands forests. The Cavendish Square and Constantia Valley shopping centres meet most retail needs and there are also some excellent outdoor markets, including the Rondebosch Park Market, Constantia Craft Market, Millstone Eco-Friendly Market in Pinelands and the Porter Estate Produce Market in Tokai.
