  • Overview

    Cape Diem is a beautifully renovated Victorian lodge located in the Green Point central suburb of Cape Town. Set in the midst of a lovely garden with the welcome addition of an inviting swimming pool, this villa has just five well-appointed bedrooms. As you can expect from such a small hotel, there is a wonderful tranquility throughout the place – perfect for that much needed r&r.

    Décor is stylish and contemporary, and balances well with the building’s age. Downstairs there is a large living room area and a veranda, where you can while away an evening taking in those evening sunsets with a cool glass of vino in hand. Service here is friendly and very personal, and it really does feel like you’re staying in your very own African villa.

    It's worth noting that this property is adult-only (over 12 years of age).


    The hosts can arrange local tours and travel arrangements. They are also very knowledgeable about the best restaurants in the city, so be sure to grab some recommendations before you commence your day's adventures.

    Green Point is an affluent central suburb of Cape Town located just north of the central business district and a few minutes' drive from the V&A Waterfront. Nearby Sea Point and Three Anchor Bay are also popular spots for a coastal stroll.


    A delicious breakfast is served each morning and included in most room rates (check detail below). Afternoon tea and sundowners are served each evening; best enjoyed on the verander as you watch the sun sink across the sky. While there is no restaurant on site, there are plenty of good options at the V&A Waterfront nearby - Grand Africa is a particular favourite.
