We are within walking distance to some of Cape Towns 5-star restaurants such as Aubergine, Maria's Greek restaurant and are close to the vibey Long Street bars and clubs - which helps make Dunkley House, one of Cape Town's "must do" experiences.

The guesthouse consists of two buildings - the main building which dates back to the mid-1800's and is typical of the Cape Dutch style, with high ceilings, French doors and shutters. Nestling in its own private area behind a wall with bougainvilleas, banana trees, and bamboo hedges. The interiors of Dunkley House have been carefully modernised, with each room styled by the owner, Sharon Scudamore.

Altogether there are 11 spacious rooms, either classical or contemporary, styled and furnished to give guests optimum comfort, as well as a 2-bedroom apartment which caters for couples or families.

5 Spacious individually styled rooms all with their own en-suite bath or shower rooms, percale linen, artwork,flat screen tv's, combined with the property DH2 within the grounds provides a further 4 luxury rooms. This building too is a period property carefully renovated and designed to give each room spaciousness, contemporary furnishings and state of the art bathrooms. Apart from the main swimming pool enjoyed by guests, there are 2 luxury rooms with wall-to-wall folding glass doors leading onto decks with their own private plunge pools and views of Table Mountain.

The in-house chef provides a daily selection of baked bread and biscotti, as well as an English breakfast and fruit platters. Airport transfer, restaurant bookings and car hire, individual eating requirements are just part of the special care and attention provided to all.
