Built at the turn of the century and nestling in a quiet cul-de-sac at the foot of Signal Hill in Green Point. This amazing Guest House is set in a sub-tropical walled garden in the heart of urban Cape More Town. Jambo is centrally located and a safe 15 minute walk to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront; while Green Point’s excellent trendy restaurants are only 5 minutes away. The city centre is 4 minutes drive.
