Chartfield Guesthouse evokes the spirit of a time when everything was done with a little more style and with a lot more attention to detail. It's a haven created to whisk you away from the cares of the world the moment you step inside this grand old house, which has been standing for over 120 years overlooking the picturesque Kalk Bay harbour. Now lovingly restored, Chartfield Guesthouse is nestled in this quaint seaside village where the pace and charm is reminiscent of a bygone era while every modern convenience is provided for.

Almost all of our rooms offer unrivalled views over the sea and Kalk Bay harbour. Large and private, allow the cool ocean breeze to whisper through your open windows bringing with it the faint sounds and maritime scents of the village below. Decorated in an understated, comfortable and uncluttered style, con- temporary sea house luxury awaits you, far from the cares of the world. All our rooms are with en-suite bathroom and furnished with king size beds and flat screen TV with eight DStv channels.

To really wind down to the pace of our seaside village, why not relax and be pampered at our Wellness Centre/Spa. Treatments are designed to cater to your every whim and are available throughout the day, leaving you fresh and revitalised for the duration of your stay.

The hustle and bustle of the restaurant can be witnessed first-hand at the Chartfield Guesthouse Restaurant has become not only a must for guests, but also for local Kalk Bay gastronomes. With an eclectic hand selected Euro-African menu, we invite you to dine with us in the splendor of Chartfield Guesthouse.

Should you need to combine business with pleasure conference facilities are available with every modern convenience. Enquire about rates for booking out all the rooms to accommodate your guests for a work retreat that won't make you feel like you've been working. We offer conferences facilities for 2 to 26 attendants.

Kalk Bay is a bastion to the Cape's sea-faring past. First visited by Simon Van Der Stel in the 17th Century one can't help but feel you've travelled back in time, worlds away from the high-rise hustle of Cape Town. Named after the chalky lime stone deposits found in the area by the Dutch in 1806 Kalk Baai (Chalk Bay) soon became a busy little fishing village. A railway line in 1883 brought with it more fishermen and tourists in their scores. In 1895 a municipality was founded and non-fishing families were encouraged to settle in the area. This developed into a tight knit bustling seaside village and much of everything that makes it special remains today.

Everything in Kalk Bay is within safe walking distance and it's a great way to really soak up the charm of the village. Restaurants are speckled all along the main road along the shore catering for every taste should you wish to try something different away from Chartfield Guesthouse's cuisine. From festive pubs to tranquil eateries, everything is on your doorstep. There are monuments at- testing to the history of Kalk Bay, a variety of quaint home-owned stores far removed from the impersonal malls of the city and Kalk Bay Books is one of the finest bookshops you'll find anywhere in the country should you fancy something to read while on holiday. Down the road is the Historic Naval Base in Simon's Town resplendent with old pubs and seaside dining. Within 30 minutes you are already at the Cape of Good Hope or at the Cape Town City Centre or at the Airport.

Cape Town South Africa

Cape Town Hotel Accommodation

Voted Favourite Foreign City by the UK Telegraph, Cape Town is one of the places you just have to visit before you die. It's an awesome city. All the vibe you want - great parties, great shopping and loads of galleries and other cultural attractions can't detract from the fact that what makes Cape Town special is the fact that it is set in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Even Sir Francis Drake, who'd pretty much seen it all, called Cape Point the 'fairest cape in all the circumference of the world'. It's a needle-sharp promontory, which - contrary to marketing hype - does not divide the Indian Ocean from the Atlantic. But Capetonians claim it does and you can often see a line of foam heading straight out from the point - possibly all the way to Antarctica - which certainly divides the False Bay Coastline on the east from the Atlantic Seaboard on the west.

And the Peninsula Mountain Chain forms a high-lying spine all the way from Cape Point to Table Mountain above the city. Most of this high lying ground is part of the Table Mountain National Park, which also includes Boulders Beach and its penguins, and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens that showcases South Africa's fabulous floral heritage as well as hosting some great concerts among the flowers. Table Mountain is the soul of Cape Town - its emotional heart and touchstone. Many Capetonians escape to the slopes of the mountain on weekends and after work as a regular - well, it's almost a pilgrimage. There are literally hundreds of walks on the mountain. Cape Town is the epicentre of the Cape Floral Region, which is a world heritage site. Another great thing about the Peninsula and its mountains is that Cape Town has virtually two different climates in one city. When the wind is blowing on one side, the beaches should be warm and sheltered on the other - and even when it's raining on one side, you may get bright sunshine on the other.

It's all a kind of yin yang thing - opposites balancing - the dark and light side of the mountain and all that esoteric stuff. And speaking of which - Cape Town is not just a beautiful city with fantastic beaches, a national park, an awesome mountain and beautiful flowers. No - it's also a great city. It's a place where residents and visitors alike work hard and play even harder.

Cape Town accommodation is plentiful and there’s something to suit every budget but it is highly advisable to book ahead, especially over the Christmas season (December to mid-February) and during the Argus Cycle Tour (usually mid-March). The greatest density of Cape Town hotels, boutique hotels, Bed and Breakfasts, guest houses and self catering apartments and holiday villas are situated in the City Bowl area and immediate South Atlantic Seaboard belt, all within a 10 minute drive from Cape Town City Centre and the V&A Waterfront. Highly desirable suburbs like Tamboerskloof and Oranjezicht spill down the slopes of Table Mountain towards Gardens, Cape Town City Centre, De Waterkant and the exclusive Waterfront. From the Waterfront the dazzling Atlantic coastline curves south, fringed by the seaside suburbs of Green Point, Sea Point, Bantry Bay the ultra glamorous suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay.

Unless you tie on a blindfold and lock yourself in your hotel room, there is absolutely no way you can get bored in Cape Town. There are so many things to do. If you're into shopping, the V&A Waterfront is just one of many shopoholic's dream venues but it stands out as it has so much more - boat trips, the embarkation point for the Robben Island ferry, the Two Oceans Aquarium, loads of interesting historical buildings and some of the city's best hotels with possibly the best views in the world. Cape town offers a whole range of exciting adventure activities, great birding, awesome whale watching, historical buildings, and dozens of museums outlining the city's fascinating history and its many cultures.

An easy day trip from Cape Town, the Winelands offer great scenery, white-washed gabled farmhouses nestling in bright green vineyards, lovely little restaurants, great coffee shops and - of course - wine tasting sales and cellar tours. When the sun goes down you can choose between hundreds of great restaurants and a huge range of funky pubs, vibey clubs and a wide selection of movies, theatre and live music. Cape Town is also home to one of the most outrageous parties in the world. The Mother City Queer Project is a themed costume party in December that is fast becoming one of the most popular gatherings - certainly in South Africa - and possibly the world. And shortly thereafter, the traditional Kaapse Klopse minstrel dancers take over parts of the city streets in a tradition that stretches back hundreds of years to the era when slavery was legal in Cape Town. Don't forget to pack your dancing shoes.

Other areas close to Cape Town you may like to explore include the dramatic West Coast, which offers great birding along the shores of Langebaan Lagoon, Namaqualand, which has even more spectacular spring flowers, and the Overberg, famous for land-based whale watching. It also features lovely flowers in spring. Cape Town is not the best game viewing destination in South Africa, but there is some small game at Cape Point and there are a few game farms a short distance from the city, but they're not really up to the standard of the game reserves further north and east.
