Bluegum Hill Guest House  -  Come home to the most breathtaking view in Cape Town

We are situated on Merriman Road, a quiet, cull de sac, and the top-most road of Green Point, one of Cape Town`s most up-market residential areas, alongside the Signal Hill Nature Reserve, with its indigenous Bluegum trees, aloes and guinea fowl.

Signal Hill separates Green Point and the City Center. This is an ideal location for visitors to Cape Town, and after a quick, two minute drive and one can explore South Africa`s` Mother City

Enjoy a full one hundred and eighty degree view of the suburbs below, the Green Point Golfing Greens, to Table Bay, with its` working Harbour, the world famous V&A Waterfront, Aquarium and the Imax Theatre.

Looking left one sees the coastal suburb of Mouille Point with its` lighthouse and seaside promenade.

On clear days one can see waves breaking on the shoreline of Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent his long prison term. Across the bay, lies Bloubergstrand with the Tygerberg Hills in the background.

From our balcony, guests enjoy planning their route to the sights below. The Waterfront is just a close 5-minute drive away, 2 minutes to the City centre, 15 minutes to Cape Towns` famous Clifton beaches and the sandy, sunny beach at Camps Bay.

Table Mountain awaits you, just a short 10-minute drive away.
