Elegant and discreet, with a relaxed European feel, De Waterkant House is the pride of the village. This beautifully restored 9-roomed, Cape Georgian Manor house, with tranquil terrace and pool, overlooks the Village, the famous Table Bay and distant Stellenbosch mountains.
De Waterkant House is centrally located, a short stroll from the Cape Quarter Shopping Centre, and a short drive from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, restaurants, bars and fashionable nightspots. Spend your day at the pool or end it with an aperitif on the terrace and a quiet dinner at a local restaurant. Then join in the fun of the pulsating nightlife within walking distance from De Waterkant House.
Early morning coffee and the traditional rusks are served in the privacy of the rooms and on the terrace, while a continental breakfast is served in the Breakfast Room. With the emphasis on good living, guests can stroll down to the local Village Cafe for a delicious snack where they can enjoy the atmosphere of the neighbourhood or simply read the daily paper.
For lunch, guests can sample meals from the Cape Malay culture, such as mutton curry, bobotie or samoosa's dipped in sweet chilli sauce from our sister guesthouse, The Charles. Other places of interest include Origin Coffee Roastery, The Loading Bay and Le Petite Tarte.
