Built in 1900, The Walden House has history and heritage oozing from its very foundation. One can find The Walden House against Table Mountain, Cape Town’s most famous backdrop. This deep-rooted style Victorian home offers a ‘home away from home’ feel. Interestingly though, The Walden House is modern with white and crisp colours. Decorated in soft tones, it has a colonial style, with a touch of local South African culture.

If you are searching for travelling convenience, then look no further. Their guest house is situated in the centre of the hustle and bustle that Cape Town has to offer. Yet it still offers a relaxing and quiet atmosphere.
