Situated against Cape Towns most famous backdrop, Table Mountain, lies The Walden House built in 1900. This old style Victorian home offers a home away from home feel, modern with white and crisp colours. Decorated in soft tones, it has a colonial style, with a hint of our South African culture.

Follow the N1 and N2 (from the airport) to Cape Town CBD:

There is a traffic light crossing at the end of the highway. This is where Buitengracht Street starts. Follow Buitengracht Street straight to Table Mountain. After five traffic light crossings, the road splits into a one-way, now called New Church Street.

Turn right at the first traffic light after the fork. This is Burnside Road. The Walden House is number 5 and on your left (opposite a small park).
