Experience Cape Town as it comes to life day or night, as a local.

Have fresh pastries and gourmet coffee delivered to you, or step out to one of many gourmet coffee shops and patisseries for your breakfast brew at Jason’s, Frank or Lattitude 33.

Take a walk down Bree Street and lunch at one of the many restaurants whatever your food tastes are, the charm of the old city and the alfresco pavement dining create an energy like no other in Africa, providing a link to the multi-cultural past of the cape. Odyssey Gastro Pub and Mulberry & Prince are just two local eateries worth mentioning , and for a local cocktail Arcade or Orphanage are upscale cocktail bars with tunes and the space to dance for those light on their feet.

Simply put this is real Cape Town, not a shopping mall designed for tourists, or a global hotel chain. It’s clean, its safe and its vibey and real.

As well as accommodation, the property is ideal for small intimate corporate and private social events up to 20 people exclusively managed by Nina van Deventer, who’s services can truly deliver an authentic Cape Town experience whatever your tastes. Concierge services, a chef, a bar man to fix cocktails for you, a man Friday to shop for you are just a few of the optional services we offer you to make your stay more comfortable and hassle free. Rates are negotiated and agreed directly.

During peak season and the hot summer months Cape Town’s stunning beaches are a short 10-15 minute drive away , even in the height of summer when tourism is at its peak.

The V&A Waterfront and Cape Town Convention Centre are within a 10-15 minute walk through a city that has truly been regenerated, is clean, safe and vibrant.

For those of you fortunate enough to be sent to work here, we are also proud to be associated with ICIC who offer trendy workspace accommodation, just a short walk (5 minutes) from the Penthouse at Cartel House.

Hiphouse is available for sale or as rental accommodation for short and longer term lets.
