The Charles

  • Available

From R880 PPS


Perfectly positioned in the very heart of De Waterkant Village, The Charles is a private, intimate and original guest house. From the roof decks of The Charles, guests can enjoy beautiful city views, especially late afternoons when the city lights up and the evenings come alive.

Positioned opposite the gorgeous al fresco styled Cape Quarter piazza. The Charles can be described as being 'The Spirit of the Village' in a town that surely is 'The fun Capital of Cape Town.'
The Charles was originally created by adjoining three adjacent historical houses, whilst maintaining the historical Georgian façade. Each room has an individual positioning and design, and the multi-leveled layout of the guesthouse is joined by inner and outer staircases.

The interior styling is a mixture of original old Cape Cottage furniture; mostly oak, yellow wood, stink wood and pine, with some contemporary modern and African pieces. Today the style is described as eclectic and creates opportunity for the spaces to develop and flourish over time.
The Charles is located in the heart of historic De Waterkant, tucked between Signal Hill, the CBD and the V&A Waterfront.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

Very nice guest house with character. Location very central - ideal for young people without a car. Walking distance to the nightlife of Cape Town, parking space limited especially on Friday nights.
