Cape Paradise

Cape Town offers all the lodging options expected from a modern city, from shiny large hotels at the waterfront to hostels at the city center. I was happy to reside a little more outside in a more quiet part of the city. At Higgovale, just underneath the table mountain cable car station two German siblings that have been at South Africa for decades operate the Cape Paradise – a relaxed guesthouse with just five rooms.

Four of them have a balcony that offers nice views on the city at sunset and sunrise. There is also a terrace with a pool and cute little garden. At arrival you’ll get a remote control key for the car gate of the car park in front of the house. Your car is safe there and you’ll probably want to leave it there while exploring the city center; there aren’t many good parking areas (except at the waterfront) and taking an Uber to the city and back seems to be the safest and most convenient way of travelling.

The Cape Paradise is located at the end of a blind alley up in the mountains and a hike to waterfront needs more than an hour. It is a beautiful and relaxing place and I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast is served in the shared living room in which you can also enjoy your evenings with a cold drink if you can manage to get away from the great panorama of your balcony.
