This luxurious home is situated in a quiet residential street in sought after Fernwood Newlands, a very smart upmarket neighbourhood of Cape Town. A convenient 15 minutes from the centre of the city and the gourmet restaurants of the city bowl and waterfront and 20 minutes from the airport. It is a 5-8 minute walk to the internationally acclaimed Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The house has two comfortable bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Two beautiful formal lounges are there for your pleasurable use and quiet time, one featuring a large fireplace and the other overlooking the pool. An enormous undercover patio leads onto the garden and it is the ideal place to relax. I look forward to sharing my beautiful home with you whether you are on vacation or a business trip. I offer fine dining experiences in the magnificently appointed main dining room or beautiful outdoor area with views of the mountain. Undercover parking at the house for 2 cars.

I travel a few times a year to do business in Cape Town, and on my last trip in July I stayed at the Cape Angel Guesthouse for three nights.

Cape Angel for me is the perfect guesthouse. It is a very spacious and comfortable guesthouse that is very much “home from home”. The room is of a high standard, and the bathroom is delightful and spacious. Most importantly everything is clean and spotless, with attention to detail. The location of the guesthouse is also a huge plus, as it is situated in a quiet leafy street with no traffic noise at all, and the house has excellent security which to me is most important.

Lynn (the owner) is an extremely helpful and charming person, who I might add is a wonderful chef as well, and very knowledgeable about restaurants in the area. Whether you looking for a fine dining experience or a quick tasty burger, Lynn will gladly point you in the right direction or make that booking for you.

I have no hesitation in recommending this guesthouse to couples or businessman who are looking for that quiet and serene place to stay. Absolutely first class.............and I really enjoyed my recent stay there and was made to feel most welcome.

Staying at CapeAngel is indeed a heavenly experience. The house is beautiful and luxuriously furnished with a tranquil garden that creates the illusion that you are in a secluded spot far away from any city. My room was tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed. The en-suite bathroom was modern and spacious, stocked with fluffy white towels and lovely bathroom goodies. As a woman traveling alone, CapeAngel provided a safe and comfortable environment in which I could feel at home. The best part is that I didn't even have to go to a restaurant to be served gourmet food. Lynn Angel is an exceptional chef and hostess with remarkable attention to detail. I will definitely be staying there again.

We stayed 3 nights there, very nice room, small but comfortable, everything very clean, we were allowed to use also the living room, the terrace and the garden, very good breakfast. Lynn, the friendly owner, prepares excellent dinner on request. She is a former chef (cook) and has a professional and beautiful kitchen. She has also very useful tips for excellent restaurants in and around Capetown. The guesthouse is in a very nice and silent area, walking distance to the botanical garden. To Capetown centre it is a 20 minutes drive, depending on traffic may longer. We would definitely book the CapeAngel Gueshouse again.

On my arrival, I was happy to find that all the comforts at home were available. This included good wifi, full DSTV channels, and most importantly: a comfortable bed!

The accommodation felt very premium and I felt like I was in a luxury establishment.

Lynn was very friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be back!

Lyyn is so adorable and make you feel like you're at home. Besides, CapeAngel Guesthouse is in a very calm and quiet neighborhood and provides you a great view of the mountain.

Uber is the best transport option nearby.
