About Huijs Haerlem
Situated in Cape Town's exciting Sea Point, Huijs Haerlem is an owner managed guest house offering bed and breakfast accommodation. This gracious home is the perfect location from which to explore the cape town area, the world famous beaches and the nearby Cape Winelands.
The stars seem closer here, high above Sea Point and the Atlantic Ocean, with not much to interrupt your views of Signal Hill, Nelson Mandela's former prison - Robben Island and Bloubergstrand. The spacious gardens and the pool terrace are perfect spots for enjoying breathtaking sunsets.
The bedrooms of our guest house are more than comfortable and offer the weary traveller all contemporary comforts, with views of the Atlantic Seaboard or Table Mountain, private balconies or terraces.
The bathrooms are all en suite, and the bedrooms are equipped with TV/M-Net, telephones, radio, punkah fans for a cool breeze in summer, heating to keep the winter cold at bay and tea/coffee making facilities. Some rooms have Internet connections. Furthermore, Internet, e-mail and fax facilities are available in a central study.
Comfort and peace are the keynote for the whole establishment. Huijs Haerlem exudes a warm atmosphere: one lounge is furnished with exquisite Danish antique furniture, whilst the second lounge displays the South African Vernacular.
Depending on the weather, sumptuous and leisurely breakfasts are served either on the pool terrace, the east facing veranda, or the dinning room
Huijs Haerlem is ideally situated - within walking distance of the bustling boulevard, 3km away from the V&A Waterfront and Cape Town City Centre and only 10 minutes drive from the famous beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. Although attractions like Kirstenbosch, art galleries, museums, Cape Point, etc., are all nearby, many guests are tempted to remain and relax by the solar heated pool, to soak up the sunshine in the peace and tranquillity.
Your hosts are there for your well being. Take benefit from their love and knowledge of Cape Town surroundings. For those travelling "bonnefooi" (Dutch for unplanned): we have stayed at a great many of the guest houses, hotels and game lodges in the country: including along the Garden Route and near the Kruger Park, and can give firsthand personal advice about the most scenic routes and accommodation in South Africa. We will gladly assist with travel and touring arrangements.
