The Terrace is a quietly sophisticated Bed and Breakfast ideally located for leisure or business, in Upper Kenilworth, a select area in Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs. We are 5 minutes’ drive from Cavendish Shopping Mall in Claremont, 10 minutes from UCT, Newlands Rugby/Cricket, 15 minutes from the City Bowl (CBD) and the Table Mountain cable car and 20-30 minutes from numerous, fabulous beaches. There is a great deli, restaurants, coffee shops
and a pharmacy just a couple of minutes walk from us!
Located on a quiet cul de sac, facing a row of historic Victorian houses with their ornate verandas and corrugated tin roofs typical of that period, The Terrace, while more contemporary, has its own wonderful charm, blending the essential “Englishness” of the area’s colonial origins with a serenity and informality that is uniquely African.
"Mountain View" - A lovely, large, double room, incorporating a comfortable seating area and enjoying a splendid view of Devil's Peak and Table Mountain. Together with its well-appointed en suite shower room, this Room has the upper floor of the main house entirely to its self. The Room is air conditioned.
"The Cottage" - A charming self-contained garden cottage just a few meters from the main house. The double bedroom, en suite shower room and open-plan sitting room/kitchen comprise 32m ² of accommodation, delightfully decorated in fresh greens and white. The kitchen, with its granite worktops, is fully equipped, offering a self-catering option (at the same Rate). The bedroom is air conditioned.
With its dark wood-block floor and colonial-inspired décor, The Studio comprises a large bedroom/sitting room with an en suite shower room. It opens with large, glazed “stack-back” doors directly onto the garden and is only steps away from the pool deck. A ceiling fan will keep you cool in the warmth of the Summer days.
All the Rooms have a 32 inch flat screen television with DSTV (compact), WIFI, ample wardrobe space, a combination safe, hair dryer, mini-fridge and tea-making facilities. Milk, filtered water and tea/coffee are replenished daily. Bed and bath linen is of superior quality (pure cotton) and soaps, shampoo and conditioner are of the luxurious “Rain” range.
We love nothing more than for our guests to make themselves at home and the sitting room, veranda, large, salt-water pool, deck and leafy garden, are all for your enjoyment. Swimming towels are provided. Breakfast is served in the “Conservatory” dining room or on the veranda, if it’s not breezy. Parking (well lit) is on the street directly outside the property.
