Cape Town was initially named the Cape of Storms by Bartolomeu Dias due to the terrible storms he encountered on the East Coast of Cape Town. Maybe it’s just me but I sometimes think that whatever name you give to something will have an inadvertent effect on that thing. Later Cape Town was renamed as the Cape of Good Hope to please the King of Portugal.
Under the name Cape of Good Hope the city has done exceptionally well. Cape Town is one of the most popular tourist attractions in South Africa, in addition property to rent in Cape Town is popular with domestic tourists who leave home and want to start afresh.
A nice suburb in Cape Town to live in is Kuilsriver, as this suburb serves as an escape from the intense inner city buzz. A quiet and simple way of life is what you get in Kuilsriver. Apartments to rent in this Cape Town suburb often come with 3 beds, 2 baths and access gates.
Just a 30-minute drive from the Cape Town city centre Kuilsriver is a valuable addition to the city and attracts many people interested in the vacant property to rent in Cape Town.
Proud residents of Cape Town love to boast about the fact that Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed the first human heart transplant in the world, back in 1967 at the Groote Schuur Hospital in the Cape of Good Hope.
