For you to know

Acorn House**** is an elegant guesthouse in Cape Town. The location in Oranjezicht, a prime residential suburb of Cape Town on the foot of Table Mountain, is exceptionally convenient. The city centre is a three minutes drive away, with the harbour`s V&A Waterfront complex and the blue-gold beaches of the Atlantic seaboard not much further. All touristic highlights are in easy reach, and, Acorn House is within walking distance to many restaurants with a trendy Deli Restaurant just opposite.

Start your day in Cape Town with an “al-fresco” breakfast served at the pool in our sizzling summers or in the homely dining room on a cooler day. The “chef by passion” will surprise you with our signature dish, 'Janine’s Cape Malay Pancake' and with 'Stewart's famous bobotie'. Acorn House' breakfast is often praised as "the second best in the city", and it is served until noon!

At Acorn House the passion of the team is always in the air. The service is attentive and personal but not obtrusive. We know what's up in and around our stunning "Mother City", we know the best places to eat and to taste wines and will gladly assist in arranging transport and guided tours – on your own or in a group.

Whether it is lounging with your feet up in the classic lounge, sipping on a glass of wine from our selection, in our well maintained garden or by the pool or taking in the breath taking views of Table Bay, the city and majestic Table Mountain from our veranda and sun deck, the experience and atmosphere is laid-back. Well chosen music adds to the mood, from South African Jazz or chill-out tunes to classical music in the evening.

Acorn House is a National Monument, over 100 years old and still fresh! Lounge, dining room and bedrooms have been lovingly preserved. Few, carefully chosen modern details add to its charm. The en-suite bedrooms are light-filled and offer selected, traditional furnishings combined with elegant and timeless fabrics. The amenities include air-conditioning/heating, a hair dryer, international power adaptors, shampoo, soaps & lotion and a bathrobe. Comfortable beds secure a very good night's rest.

Old in years but by no means in time, Acorn House offers free Wifi and more: check your emails at the poolside while sipping a Nespresso! The LIVE image – to be found on the website – offers a step onto the sundeck and a glimpse on Table Mountain even before you arrive. Once you are here, smile into the webcam and make those back home part of your paradise holiday at Acorn House, Cape Town, South Africa.
