The Walden Suites
Below Lions Head lies the stylish, elegant Villa built 1923 in the best area of Fresnaye. Quiet, sunny and protected from the wind with fantastic views onto the Atlantic Ocean, Robben Island and Table Bay.

House Walden is named by its first owner after the autobiography novel Walden from the American author Henry David Thoreau and converted into a B&B Guest House by the current owner in 2003.

The comfortable arrangement emphasises the special ambience of the house and offers individual requirements for guests as well as the equivalent of a restful stay in Cape Town.

From The Walden Suites in Fresnaye, one of the most prestigious areas in Cape Town, the guest has very easy access to all tourist attractions and business centers within the Cape Region.

After an eventful day relax around our 17 x 4 meter salt-water pool with a sun-deck with views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Enjoy the variety on the breakfast-buffet in the spacious open-plan kitchen and dining area or on the garden terrace. House-bar with wines from the local region, self-catering bar with tea, coffee, espresso and cooldrinks.
