Booking Apartments at the Empire in Muizenberg

Self-Catering Apartments, Vacation Rentals, Holiday Homes, Air BnB Rentals and more.

MUi Stays has several property listings within the famous Empire Building in Muizenberg. This apartment complex is situated on Beach Road and is directly opposite the main Muizenberg Beach area, and the iconic surfers corner. Muizenberg is the oldest surfing town in South Africa, if not Africa, and surfers corner in Muizenberg was where it all began.

The building overlooks the famous Muizenberg Beach Huts. One of Cape Towns’ most iconic images. The huts have been a regular feature of Muizenberg since the late 19th century. In the mid 1900’s someone decided to paint their hut all different colours (reasons unknown) and this set a trend, culminating in the multi coloured landmarks we see today. The huts are currently being restored by The Beach Hut Trust, an initiative started by local residents including ourselves. (

    Good day,
    My wife and I are looking for an apartment for about 6months.
    Due to work, we require a “lock up and go”.
    Please let me know if you have anything available and what the cost is.
