Situated just 200m from the palm-fringed, snowy white beach in Camps Bay, you will find this historical house, Swiss Cottage No.1, nestled below the Apostles Mountain Range (Part of Table Mountain).
A feature and landmark in Camps Bay Village, it is one of four "Swiss Cottages" that came from Oslo, Norway, where the wood was cut and shaped, ready to assemble and then shipped to Cape Town in 1902.

Your hosts, Dr Smith & Elmira, and the staff are dedicated to making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Whilst Dr Smith is a dentist with a full time practice, Elmira is responsible for the management of the guest house. Camps Bay is the number one tourist destination in Cape Town, South Africa. Only ten minutes drive to the city, the Waterfront and Table Mountain and thirty minutes to the airport, Wine Route and False Bay.

From the guest house, walk to the beach and shops and savour the local and international cuisine offered by the many restaurants and side-walk cafes. Witness the stunning sunsets over the sea whilst sipping cocktails from the funky bars or the balcony of the famous Blues or Paranga Restaurant; or simply soak up the sun on the number one rated beach in South Africa.

Swiss Cottage has built a reputation as a place that is "a home away from home" and nothing is too much for us to organise and arrange for our guests. Many guests have become personal friends and have visited several times and referred their friends and family to Swiss Cottage. Guests appreciate the fact that they can walk (takes 2 minutes) to the beach and restaurants.
