Holiday Rental House -

Rondebosch, Western Cape
This heritage property has been featured in local and international commercials and is based in Cape Town's popular Southern Suburbs which wrap around the iconic Table Mountain. It is a 15 minute drive into the City and ideally placed within a few miles of delightful restaurants, world class golf courses, exclusive boutiques and theatres.

The house was built in 1905 and has the original wooden floors, sash windows with shutters and fireplaces in 3 of the rooms. The house sleeps 6 (or more), and has recently been renovated.

There is an outside barbequ...

About the neighbourhood
The house is within a few miles radius of delightful restaurants, coffee shops, world class golf courses, exclusive boutiques, theatres, bars and tourist sights . This makes the house an excellent base for exploring Cape Town and surrounds.

We love our neighbourhood as it has a 'community' feel. Our neighbours are helpful and people walk their dogs or ride their bikes up the road to the lovely Rondebosch Common nearby.

We are out of the bustle of the city but a 15 minute drive takes you to the heart of Cape Town and all it has to offer. A walk on the mountain is a 10 minute drive and the beaches are 20 minutes away. The airport is only 15 minutes up the highway.
