Our Surroundings

You might wonder what to do around Cape Town? Here are popular attractions in Number5 Guesthouse's neighborhood, as well as around Cape Town:

We are located in a quiet and peaceful street in the suburb of Gardens, one of the most trendy in Cape Town. Just a few steps from us is Kloof Street, a bustling street where you can find cafés, shops, and a variety of restaurant, whether you are looking for a quick bite to eat, or a fancy meal.

With a ten-minute walk, you can be in Company Garden, one of the oldest and most beautiful garden in South Africa, home to museums and memorials.

You can also hike up Table Mountain, or take the cable car, which you can reach with a ten-minute car ride.

The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is a ten-minute drive away, you will there be able to rent bikes and cycle along the coast! From the Waterfront, you can also take the ferry that will take you to Robben Island, where you can visit the prison where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years.

Do you want to explore outside the city as well? You can drive along Chapman's Peak Drive, a spectacular and scenic road south of Cape Town.

At the end of this drive, you can continue your journey down to Cape Point with its beautiful Lighthouse, Cape of Good Hope and its wildlife, and Cape Agulhas where The Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet.
