About Heron Square

In 2011, we started bringing affordable student accommodation to Observatory & Mowbray. Our properties are all located within close proximity to popular learning establishments such as the University of Cape Town, ADFA and Varsity College.

We are striving to continuously upgrade our existing properties as well as identify and develop new properties within the Observatory & Mowbray area. We are further dedicated to our neighborhood’s upliftment,  by being environmentally aware and responsible as well as increasing our security presence so that our precinct is greatly improved and much safer.


Student living with a community.

our testimonials

Don't Take Our Word For It

My experience living at 25 Stanley House has been very joyful, due to the fact that staff are loving, and ready to help you whenever you need them. Whether it be personal or normal circumstances they are always friendly and feel like family. When walking into this house you are never alone, housemates are friends but most importantly they become family.

It’s been so great at Heron Square, I’ve been staying at 6 Roman Road for only a few months but it has really been great. I always feel so comfortable and at home. The house is perfect and our landlord is amazing, helpful and caring. I would definitely recommend Heron Square to any student who is looking for a safe, secure and homely feeling.
It is very rare to find a landlord who is so hands on and willing and quick to help" As we come to the end of our time here, I would like to thank you so much for your support and commitment as a landlord. It is very rare to find a landlord who is so hands on and willing and quick to help. This has definitely made our experience here a happy and easy one.
