Acorn Lodge

Acorn Lodge is centrally situated in the quiet, leafy suburb of Rondebosch. It offers 5 lovely en-suite bedrooms all complete with their own television sets and tea trolleys, a must for those crisp winter mornings and ideal for those lazy summer evenings. Three of the rooms have outside entrances and a fourth has a door to the side of the house.

The large open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room allows for all the guests to be able to sit back in a spacious and relaxed environment and enjoy the delights that Acorn Lodge has to offer. From these living areas, the French doors swing open on all sides to a beautiful patio and entertainment area revealing a tranquil setting and a choice not only in accommodation, but a choice in lifestyle.

The patio is accompanied by a glistening pool and also completes itself with a braai (Barbecue) area for relaxation and entertainment. Cape Town was designed for summer, and Acorn Lodge takes full advantage of this with its outdoor entertainment area. From cool summer drinks beside the pool to warmer red wines within the comfort of the living area, Acorn Lodge is a delight for all seasons. The family room is equipped with everything needed for the leisure and business lifestyle, including DSTV and wireless internet access.

  • Very friendly and personal service made our stay special.
    The house is spacious with lots of open public space to relax in including the garden with a large pool. The bedrooms are also spacious and guests have use of an additional little kitchen area if needed.
    Secure off road parking and free wifi are additional benefits.
    The lodge was easy to find and in a quiet location but only 15 minute drive into central Cape Town. Excellent value for money.

  • Highly recommended. Lovely settings with secure parking, a lovely outside area and swimming pool and very close to shops, restaurants and especially UCT. June is the perfect hostess, who is a mine of information about where to go and does a lovely breakfast, hot and cold. Our room was perfect, with a little kitchenette and fridge which allowed us absolute freedom.

  • Owner is very “hands-on”, promptly preparing breakfast herself. We stayed in the smallest room, which we found quite adequate for the 2 of us. Spacious lounge area, and kitchen available for guests to make themselves sandwiches etc.

  • My Family and I enjoyed our stay at Arcorn Lodge in Decemeber 2013. It was home away from home – June(The owner) ensured that we felt at home. The tranquility was at its best! Let alone the good food which June lovingly prepared for us. Another wonderful thing about the stay is that June allowed us to have a special family breakfast with an exclusive decor, celebrating my Graduation. The roooms are spacious and clean…Did i mention that the sheets are white and fresh? The garden is well maintained and beautiful to look at :-). Thank you June for such a wonderful service. Dawn.
