The house

N°5 Union Street is the address of our 1930’s Heritage house located in the inner city suburb of Gardens, a few steps away from Cape Town city center.
Owners Patricia and Christophe, after extensive and inspirational renovations have made this old lady into the chic African guest house it is today while preserving its unique personality.

Its 7 beautifully decorated bedrooms, its peaceful, quaint outdoor areas are a welcoming haven after a long day at work or discovering the buoyant city.
So don’t keep it a secret.
You might wonder what is a heritage house ? 
It’s a house with a historical value and interest that must be retained and remain an asset to its area. The aesthetic value of the façade, the roofing material and windows are protected by local legislation and that’s what
N°5 Guest house is : historical, aesthetic and of value.
