    Welcome to Glenhaven Cottages

    “This was a really good find. Lovely spacious accommodation, and a little outside private courtyard as well. Had absolutely everything we needed. Our hostess and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked. The location was also great, it's a beautiful, leafy, tranquil area, you are walking distance to restaurants and upscale shops, and can also get to either central Cape Town, the waterfront or the coast quickly by car. Also very near Kirstenbosch.”

Glenhaven Cottages – Newlands – Cape Town

Glenhaven Bed & Breakfast is situated in the beautiful, leafy suburb of Newlands, in the heart of the southern suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa. The guest house consists of three large rooms with open plan seating areas, dining areas and kitchenettes, allowing for self-catering. A sumptuous breakfast is however included in the cost per night and is served in a tranquil setting on the veranda by the pool. It is enclosed, so it’s used all year round. Whether for a business trip or holiday, Glenhaven is truly a home from home.

The rooms are tastefully and thoughtfully furnished in an attempt to cater for all needs. Your host and owner, Sue Joustra, will always go the extra mile to ensure that you are comfortable and she will advise on any tourist aspect of your visit. The team consists our chef and friendly housekeeper, Lina and Fatima.


The two upstairs rooms were designed to be guest rooms and have high ceilings with bamboo between exposed wooden beams. This creates a unique charm. The floors are wooden and have natural fibre mats for comfort and quietness. Furnishings are of an ethnic flair and these rooms therefore have an “African” or “safari” feel. All rooms have double bed sleeper couches.

Swiss Cottage/ Double room with balcony – Featuring bamboo ceilings and wooden floors, this air-conditioned or heated room comes with a dining and lounge area and basic kitchenette. The bathroom is fitted with a shower. Beds can be made up into two singles or king.

Art Room/ Double room with mountain view – Offering a stunning view of Table Mountain through two skylights, this room is decorated with original artwork. It has wooden floors & bamboo ceilings, and comes with a dining area and a lounge area and kitchenette. The bathroom is fitted with a bath only. The king size bed can be made up with two single beds if required.




Guests can swim in the pool anytime and use the weber braai for barbeques. The pool area has recently been renovated and landscaped and provides a peaceful, outdoor space to relax and enjoy the fabulous views of table mountain.

Each room in Glenhaven is fully equipped with crockery and cutlery for the kitchenettes. They have a dining table which can double up as a desk.

The Wifi works very well and is free of charge.
