Claremont is one of the southern suburbs of Cape Town; only about 20 minutes drive from the city centre. You can reach both Cape Town CBD and the V&A Waterfront by train from Claremont and Main Road has a constant rush of local taxis to most major centres.

Claremont is perhaps best known for its shopping, and the malls – Cavendish Square and The Link - are vibrant hubs of activity. Most of the major shops are represented here as well as some exclusive boutiques.

Little Harfield village, across the railway line in Claremont, is popular with the younger set buying their first homes. It is a collection of former labourers’ homes and a picturesque area through which to drive and Arderne Gardens, on Main Road in Claremont, has one of the richest collections of exotic trees and shrubs.

Claremont is closest to False Bay’s beaches, generally regarded as warmer than the Atlantic Seaboard and is conveniently close to the Newlands Cricket/Rugby Stadium, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Newlands Forest and the Constantia Winelands.

Claremont, situated in Cape Town's Southern Suburbs in the Western Cape province of South Africa, is a vibrant and diverse area with a rich history and plenty to offer.

Here are five interesting things about Claremont:

  1. Historic Buildings: Claremont boasts several well-preserved historic buildings, reflecting its colonial past. One notable example is the Claremont Town Hall, built in the Victorian architectural style and declared a National Monument in 1980. Other historic structures include the Claremont Congregational Church and the old Claremont Railway Station.

  2. Shopping and Entertainment: Claremont is a major commercial and retail hub, home to several shopping centers, including Cavendish Square and the nearby Stadium on Main. These centers offer a wide range of shops, boutiques, restaurants, cinemas, and entertainment venues, making Claremont a popular destination for shopping and leisure activities.

  3. Educational Institutions: Claremont is home to prestigious educational institutions such as Herschel Girls' School, Western Province Preparatory School (WPPS), and South African College Schools (SACS). These schools have a long history and are known for their academic excellence and contributions to the community.

  4. Green Spaces: Despite being a bustling urban area, Claremont offers several green spaces where residents and visitors can enjoy nature and outdoor activities. Claremont Park, situated near Cavendish Square, provides a peaceful retreat with lush lawns, shady trees, and picnic areas. Nearby, Arderne Gardens is a botanical garden featuring a diverse collection of plants and trees, including exotic species from around the world.

  5. Transport Links: Claremont is well-connected to other parts of Cape Town and beyond via various transportation options. The area is served by the Claremont railway station, providing convenient access to the city center and suburbs. Additionally, major roads such as Main Road and the M3 freeway pass through Claremont, facilitating easy commuting and travel by car or bus.

These are just a few highlights of what makes Claremont a dynamic and appealing destination within Cape Town's Southern Suburbs. Whether you're interested in history, shopping, education, nature, or convenience, Claremont has something for everyone to enjoy.

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.

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.
