A home away from home, the hosts aspire to offer warm and hospitable accommodation to both the business and leisure traveller topped with a memorable and pleasurable stay. Nestled in the breathtaking beauty of Pinelands, backdropped by the majesty of Table Mountain. Forest Retreat Guesthouse offers a sanctuary of tranquility whilst still being centrally located with a three minute drive to some major highways which allows for easy access to our commercial hubs such as the Cape Town CBD, Cape Town International Airport as well as popular tourist attractions such as: Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, our beaches, the V&A Waterfront, Grand West Casino and the Cape Winelands to name but a few. Closer to home are a multitude of lovely parks, green open spaces and memorials to celebrate South Africa's first official garden city.
Perched between the ocean and the mountain, with a national park as its heart, there is nowhere like Cape Town. Cape Town, the "Mother City", is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years.The unique topography of the region makes it easy to orientate oneself as long as you remember that with Table Mountain behind you and Robben Island before you, you are facing north, looking across Table Bay and up the west coast of Africa.It is in Cape Town that the Rainbow Nation really covers the spectrum. Between beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional dancers with painted faces performing in the streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this city will fill your senses.
