The best place to stay!
I LOVE Rondebosch! I have lived here for 61 years! As a destination for visitors, it is central to everything. 10 minutes drive from the airport, 10 minutes drive to the City Centre and about 20 minutes to the nearest beaches. Rondebosch also offers easy access to the starts of many hikes in Cape Town. There are some wonderful restaurants in Rondebosch and it's just the best place to be if you are visiting Cape Town!

It was Jan van Riebeeck who named the area behind Devil's Peak "Het Ronde Doornbosjen" after a round cluster of trees, possibly near a Khoi stockade, on the hillock where St. Paul's Church sits today.

A great landmark is the Rondebosch common, a large green belt and National Monument boasting a number of unique species of indigenous plants. The common is enjoyed by many people for recreational walks or jogging. Victorian homes abound Rondebosch as well as many homes designed by the famous architect Sir Herbert Baker.

Rondebosch and Surrounds
Right below the University of Cape Town and Devil's Peak, lies a small gem of a village, unspoilt and vibrant! An outdoor market offering a wide variety of organic and biodynamic fresh produce as well as preserves, cheeses and hand made goods. Venue outside Rondebosch Library. Rondebosch is the most tranquil little pocket under the mountain's watchful eye, the energy is formidable, with fresh deli's and flat white coffees!It is right next to the world famous Newlands Rugby Stadium, Try it sometime!
