About Roodenburg House 1882
This beautiful historic house was built in 1882 and is situated in the leafy suburb of Rondebosch in the shadow of Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak. The house was built according to the Arts and Crafts style of architecture finding favour in Victorian England and its colonies. For 25 years leading pathologist, Dr Judy Whittaker, conducted her practice at Roodenburg House.
During 2009, Judy and a team of close confidants began planning the renovation of the old lady, and Roodenburg Guest House was born and ready to receive guests in June 2010. This Guest House has become very popular with corporate and overseas families, as well as hosting conferences for national and foreign companies.
This four star lovely old house exudes hospitality and offers a warm, welcoming ‘home from home’ experience. A comfortable lounge area opens onto the swimming pool and surrounds which invite one to just “kick back” and relax. However, this room also has a lovely old fireplace which encourages one to curl up and relax during the colder months of the year. The quaint garden is beautifully laid out with the ‘honeymoon suite’ opening onto its own private courtyard area. This lovely room contains one of the period fireplaces to add to its charm.
