Kirstenhof at a glance

With its laid-back suburban feel it is easy to forget that the picturesque Kirstenhof is only 20 minutes outside the City Bowl and roughly a 30 minute drive from the busting Cape Town International Airport.

The main road that winds its way through the suburbs of Rondebosch, Wynberg, Plumstead and Bergvliet and onto Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and, eventually, Simon’s Town is only minutes away from Kirstenhof, along with the many shops, boutiques, restaurants, and speciality stores that line its vibrant pavements.

The suburb is also situated near to a number of shopping centres, world-class restaurants and various other entertainment amenities.

Outdoor lovers revel in the wide open spaces like Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden that can be found in the Southern Suburbs. For those seeking entertainment or the arts, theatres like the Baxter and many art galleries both large and small can be visited.
