Fondly known as The Mother City, Cape Town is recognized as one the world’s top cities by Travel + Leisure, CNN Travel, The Telegraph, and Condé Nast Traveler, amongst others.
Famous for sandy white beaches, exceptional cuisine and wine, design influencers, cultural abundance, and the breath-taking natural wonder of Table Mountain, Cape Town is one of the hottest destinations in the world today with an experience to suit every palate.

That there is a plethora of cultures, world views, design visions, and tastes within Cape Town is apparent throughout the city. Buildings dating back hundreds of years sit alongside towering, modern skyscrapers of steel and glass, brightly coloured neighbourhoods and small, quirky cafés. Architecture, design, art, and theatre are cornerstones of Cape Town’s unique personality.
An important aspect of any Capetonian’s lifestyle is food, and of course wine – local wine. With the hottest culinary street in the country, Cape Town’s Bree Street offers an abundance of dining experiences from casual tapas, exceptional pizzas or lobster burgers to more fine dining affairs. Visitors will be hard pressed to choose a restaurant with thousands of options from which to choose.
After a leisurely brunch at the Waterfront or serene lunch at a vineyard, there is much to see and more to do. Thrill seekers, nature lovers, culture vultures, beach bums, and city slickers will each find their rhythm in the city. An ideal destination for any traveller from festive family trips to friends seeking adventure, couples looking to explore and connect, and solo travellers in search of something new, Cape Town welcomes everyone into her bosom and guarantees an experience to cherish.View other areas >
Here are some places to stay in this area
Bloubergstrand, Cape Town, South Africa, West Coast, Western Cape
Barefoot Blouberg is in the historic Village of Bloubergstrand with sweeping views over Table Bay towards Table Mountain and Robben island. The Villa is the perfect base for the watersport enthusiast, a family vacation, or business traveller. You’ll feel like you’re on an island despite being minutes away from shops and restaurants.
Upper Wheelan House
Claremont & Newlands, Newlands, South Africa, Southern Suburbs, Western Cape
A peaceful, compact three-bedroom villa, affordable enough to make it your long-term Cape Town base, punctuated with jaunts along either coastline, or road trips into the hinterland. Within the village-like atmosphere of a popular local hood this is a real home from home, with two ceramic dogs that stand sentinel at your glass-paned front door awaiting your return.
False Bay, St James
Named after a century-old stairway that links the house to the coast-hugging Main Road, Jacob’s Ladder does feel like a top rung on the way to heaven. Open your front door and you’re drawn in by an enormous blue horizon – as inviting as a cruiseliner heading out to sea. Turn back and glimpses of the perpendicular mountain, virtually in your back yard, root you back in terra firma. With four bedrooms, two lounges and several dining options spread across three levels, and a pool that feels almost cantilevered off the mountain, Jacob’s Ladder is designed for easy living, in one of the most sought after suburbs on the Cape’s pretty south Peninsula coast.
