Cape Town's Northern Suburbs Accommodation

...for Quality Vineyards and Scenic Beauty

Centred around Bellville, the expansive northern suburbs include Tygerberg, Durbanville, Century City and Milnerton… all of which are 25 minutes or less from Cape Town. Named after the surveyor general of the Cape Colony – Charles Davidson Bell – Bellville is renowned for its verdant vineyards, shopping centres and recreational facilities, among them the illustrious Bellville Golf Club.

The Bellville Golf Club’s 6000-metre, Par 72 golf course incorporates the natural contours with immaculately-manicured fairways and greens, and stunning views of the Hottentots Holland mountains in the distance. If golfing is your game, then Bellville Golf Club is definitely worth a stop.

The natural beauty flows into Durbanville Wine Valley, a gem of the Cape’s Northern Suburbs comprising a vintage selection of quality vineyards - Altydgedacht, Bloemendal, D’Aria, Diemersdal, De Grendel, Durbanville Hills, Hillcrest, Klein Roosboom, Meerendal, Nitida, Phizante Kraal wines and Signal Gun. Take some time out to enjoy the region’s immense scenic beauty while sampling some of these award-winning wines accompanied by delectable cheeses and fruits.

Staying with the outdoors, the Northern Suburbs also boast the historic Tygerberg Nature Reserve, a 309-hectare reserve which offers views of the Cape Peninsula and a range of interesting hiking trails and picnic sites. For the floral fanatics, Tygerberg Nature Reserve is home to some 562 floral species and is one of the largest remaining areas of the critically endangered Swartland Shale Renosterveld. The wheelchair-friendly reserve also has a well-maintained wheelchair path and picnic site.

For visitors more partial to indoor activities, there is lots to do in the Northern Suburbs, including a visit to the Tyger Valley Centre – where ‘lifestyle, leisure and the latest fashion meet’. The mall has some 250 stores selling a variety of fashion, health, beauty, leisure, sporting, homeware and home comfort products, all of which is just a 15-minute drive from Cape Town CBD. The Food & Entertainment Court has a wealth of fine dining and fast food options, with a big screen TV for the latest sport and a child-centred Funky Frogs’ arena.

If you’re looking to take in some theatre, then the relaxed and rustic setting of the Barnyard Theatre in Tyger Valley is well worth a visit. Patrons attending the theatre sit around heavy wooden tables with food served before the show to encourage camaraderie before the curtain goes up. This unique theatre puts on a range of musical performances, as well as hosting top South African comedians and performers.

Entertainment abounds at the only casino in the Cape Town, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World, based in Goodwood, which is suited to the whole family. The non-stop entertainment offered has ‘all the thrills and excitement of a Las Vegas-scale casino’ including international musical performances; laser tag; an arcade; 12-lane bowling; and an Olympic-size skating rink.

Another incredible find within the Northern Suburbs is Century City, a mixed-use development established in 1997. The 250-hectare wasteland was completely re-envisioned into a complete city consisting of the must-visit Ratanga Junction – a vast theme park – as well as Canal Walk, one of the must successful shopping centres countrywide.

And for some cultural and historical immersion, there is Mayibuye Centre based at the University of the Western Cape, Bellville. Here you can find an impressive collection of previously banned material from South Africa’s anti-apartheid struggle, including photographic archives, posters, banners, art and even depictions of oral history.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
