A gracious Victorian villa with a Table Mountain backdrop, The Walden House is set in Cape Town’s smart Tamboerskloof district. It is close enough to the city centre to walk there but far enough removed to enjoy peace and quiet in a leafy environment. The location also puts you within easy reach of Table Mountain and as well as the golden beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton.
Immaculately restored to its original splendour, The Walden House offers seven charming suites to its discerning guests, including a honeymoon suite. The old-world ambience is complimented by contemporary notes and a relaxed simplicity. High ceilings and wooden floors open out to manicured gardens and mountain views, and each suite has a flat-screen television, mini-bar, air conditioning and wireless Internet access. Service is personalised and attentive but discreet.
Complete with secure parking for your rental car and a reservations manager who will make restaurant reservations for you, this boutique accommodation is ideal for independent-minded guests who are looking for an urban edge to their Cape Town experience. The neighbourhood has eateries, art galleries and boutiques within strolling distance and the atmosphere is fashionable and creative.
The main villa’s lounge is warm and inviting and leads into the dining room where there is a fireplace and views over the garden. Outdoors, The Walden House has a splash pool and sundeck with loungers. A reservations manager is on hand to assist with requests, and guests enjoy a complimentary laundry and dry cleaning service as well as secure parking, free Wi-Fi Internet and 24-hour security.
