Based in a safe area in Tamboerskloof, hotspots such as Kloof-, Bree- and Long Street, but also downtown and Bo Kaap are within walking distance. Restaurants, cafés and bars are also close by. A walk to the table mountain cable way...

The Underberg House is an elegant property in a great neighborhood. It has been perfectly restored and decorated by Bruce and Anne. One can tell they take great pride in their guest house, and they take the time to converse with all their guests. The place is always clean and quiet, and feels like home away from home. It would...

Underburg House was my base for a short stay in Cape Town. It is very conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood but close to a lot of amenities. Anne is very helpful and her own elegance is reflected in the decor of her guesthouse which could easily appear in 'Homes and Gardens'.
