Known as the jewel of the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, Durbanville is home to a wide variety of wine farms and offers amazing views of Table Mountain and local orchards. And in Durbanville, there is no better place to stay than at the Pelican Place Guest Cottages.
Pelican Place is perfectly situated within driving distance of all the local attractions of Cape Town, while keeping away from the busy City Centre. Guests will find that activities such as golf courses, tennis clubs, shopping centres and theme parks are just a few minutes away.

“Pelican Place Guesthouse is the perfect retreat after a day of sightseeing. Once back home, one can unwind in the thatch-roof covered Jacuzzi, or escape those hot days by simply swimming in the pool, whilst enjoying the landscaped garden and the friendliness of staff and other guests,” Evvie describes.
“We stayed at Pelican Place for almost a month on a business trip and the cottage was very convenient. Self-catering kitchen with everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating and even changed the beds to suit our needs as well as moved a table for us to use as a work space.” – Oyseka D TripAdvisor.

“The guest cottages at Pelican Place are really lovely and the owners very friendly. We were in Cape Town for a wedding and pelican place was the perfect base for us. The pool was perfect although a little cold at that time of year. The owner did breakfast for us whenever we requested it and actually did a taxi run for us one evening as taxis are not very available. I would recommend this accommodation as a perfect self-catering holiday.” – Barbara M TripAdvisor.
