5 Camp Street luxury self-catering is situated near the city centre of Cape Town, in a secure area on the lower slopes of Table Mountain. Many wonderful attractions are within walking distance of us - the vibrant nightlife of Long Street, the culinary delights of Kloof Street, the splendour of fynbos flowers on Table Mountain slopes, the cable car and lovely ever-changing views from the mountain top, and all the interesting museums (District Six, Jewish Museum, National Art Gallery, the South African Museum).
The beaches (Camps Bay, Clifton, Sea Point) and the Victoria and Albert Waterfront are all a 10-minute drive away. The MyCiti bus service can be accessed 200m from our doorstep.
The guesthouse comprises 3 late-Victorian style houses built just after the First World War. One house is named after a decisive battle fought between the French and the Germans in 1916: Verdun. Another is named after St Eloi, in France, where the Canadians suffered defeat against the Germans in 1915. The houses have the typical characteristics of that era: high steel pressed ceilings, wooden floors, wide verandas and copper fittings.
Each house has been renovated to contain 2 self-catering units. Each unit has 2 bedrooms (one a double en-suite and the other a twin en-suite), a lounge with DSTV and internet access, and a fully equipped kitchen. Each unit is ideal for a family, but can also be opened up to extend to a 4 bedroomed house which is ideal for a party of 4 couples, or even more.
