Where to Stay in Cape Town with your family

Let's face it, finding the perfect base for your family holiday in Cape Town can be a daunting task. You're not just looking for safety; you need a spot that's close to kid-friendly attractions, fun recreational activities, and surrounded by dining options that everyone will enjoy.


Then there's the matter of where you'll call home while you're here. The right accommodation goes beyond just a place to sleep. It needs to be a safe space, equipped with child-friendly amenities like cribs and secured against potential accidents.

As a parent with young children, I understand the nuances of planning a family-friendly holiday in Cape Town and navigating the challenges of finding the perfect location with safe, comfortable properties. It really doesn't have to be a difficult.

When planning your family holiday to Cape Town, it's crucial to consider several key factors that will ensure your vacation is both enjoyable and hassle-free. Here's what you should look for to make the most of your family getaway:

1. Safe, Comfortable, and Clean Accommodations: Prioritize properties that adhere to high standards of cleanliness and comfort. It's essential to find accommodations that are safe for children, with child-proofing measures and amenities (cribs, high chairs) designed & included to make your stay comfortable and secure.

Authentic, Local Attractions and Experiences: Seek out areas that offer authentic local experiences close to nature and community life. Look for an area that provides an array of attractions such as pristine beaches, interactive activities and local markets that offer a taste of the local culture and scenic beauty, making your holiday exciting for both adults and children.

Safety and Security in the Area: Choose neighbourhoods known for their family-friendly atmosphere and community vigilance. These neighbourhoods often have a regular presence, which enhances security and provides a more authentic experience.

Family-Friendly Attractions with Easy Access to Broader Cape Town: Look for locations that not only have their own local attractions but also offer easy access to the broader experiences of Cape Town. Being within a reasonable driving distance of the city center, like a scenic 40-minute drive through Chapman’s Peak or Constantia, means you can explore major attractions without the need to compromise on peace and tranquillity.

Budget-Friendly: Consider the overall cost of your holiday, looking for areas that offer good value for money. The ‘outskirts’ of Cape Town, for example, tends to be more budget-friendly compared to the more tourist-centric parts of the CBD and immediate areas, as it doesn’t command the same premium yet offers a rich and engaging experience. This approach can make your holiday more affordable, allowing you to enjoy more activities and experiences within your budget.
