More info about Oranjezicht
Oranjezicht is a quiet suburb on the foothills of Table Mountain adjacent to the City Bowl and overlooking Table Bay. This stylish upmarket suburb has many old Victorian style guest houses and villas with beautiful little gardens. Oranjezicht is ideal for holidays and business; it is within walking distance of the buzzing and trendy shops and restaurants of Long and Kloof streets.
Once a huge farm extending from Table Mountain lower slopes down to the Castle of Good Hope, Oranjezicht was the symbol of wealth in Cape Town. Ships entering the bay would purchase from farmers selling their produce at the farm and although the original homestead was demolished years ago, a few of the farm structures still remain.
Oranjezicht has always been regarded as a high profile area thanks largely to the majestic sea views and convenient location. Most of the old homes have been beautifully restored and residents take great pride in their suburb... Show more
About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
