Residing in Bantry Bay, an exclusive Cape Town suburb, 52 De Wet is located high up, on the slopes of Lion Head Mountain, where you are sheltered from the famous Cape Doctor, the strong south-easterly wind that blows through Cape Town from October to March, clearing up the city air and taking the edge off the summer heat. There are just seven rooms at 52 De Wet, in keeping with the style of a private guesthouse rather than a commercial establishment, and all of them offer open views of the South Atlantic ocean, stretching further than the eye can see. Each room is uniquely decorated, and some of the them come with private plunge pools. Delicious food and wine is an integral part of the 52 De Wet ethos, created from fresh, local, seasonal produce. There also a small spa on site.
