The guest house is one of the most private, intimate and original new guest houses in Cape Town’s gay village, De Waterkant.
De Waterkant lies in the historic Bo-Kaap area of Cape Town, an historic and culturally interesting area of the city. A traditional residential area of Cape Town's Muslim community which is situated on the slopes of Signal hill. It still has original cobbled streets, brightly coloured houses from the nineteenth century, Muslim shrines ("kramats") and mosques. Most of the residents are descended from slaves brought to the Cape by the Dutch in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Trendy and fashionable today, it is compared to New York's Greenwich Village and London's Soho with its tree-lined streets, restored cottages, spectacular views and village atmosphere.
Located opposite Café Manhattan, one of the oldest gay restaurants in the city, the guest house is the ideal place to really experience the pulse of Cape Town.
The guest house consists of three historical Georgian houses, which are internally linked. The interior styling is a mixture between original old Cape Cottage furniture; mostly oak, yellow wood, stink wood and pine, with some contemporary modern and African pieces. Today the style is described as eclectic and creates opportunity for the spaces to develop and flourish over time.
Views from the roof decks of the guest house are spectacular! And guests enjoy bird's eye views of the famous V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain, De Waterkant Village and the city itself.
At night, De Waterkant Village throbs with the vibrant sounds coming from the late-night cafés, restaurants and clubs as throngs of glamorous people eat, drink and make merry in a nightspot to end all nightspots!
