Green Point is an area of Cape Town that enjoys the rare luxury of protection from the notorious Cape Doctor - whose south easterly wind buffers the city during the summer months. Many guesthouses, Green Point Bed & Breakfasts, sidewalk cafes and stylish shops keep the area abuzz during the day; at night the atmosphere is charged with energy from the numerous bars and nightspots. This is the trendiest Cape Town suburb - and at the heart of this is Cape Quarter.
Cape Quarter enjoys great proximity to the busy city centre and the popular Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. It is also easily accessed by foot - or via taxi or bus - from Cape Town's best known Atlantic seaboard beaches and Cape Town hotels. Secure on-site parking is offered and the building is covered by security and CCTV surveillance.
