Of all the words, in all the world, why Sonder? Of all the clever catch phrases, why this one? In this essay, I (aka Michelle, co-founder of both Casa del Sonder and Sonder Cafe) reveal the significance of the word and what it means to me.
Where every stranger has a story
Welcome to Casa Del Sonder • Cape Town, South Africa
Casa Del Sonder
Nestled between the European-styled village of De Waterkant and the famously bright-coloured houses of Bo-Kaap, Casa Del Sonder is a beautifully restored vintage inspired guesthouse, in the heart of Cape Town. We offer 6 uniquely decorated, comfy bedrooms of various sizes, all with ensuite bathrooms and their own personal and poetic touch.
The Rooftop Terrace
Our incredible, world-class roof top terrace boasts stunning views of Table Mountain and the city bowl, as well as a plunge pool and open bar area. Host your own evening braai or spend the afternoon languishing by the pool, the space is yours to enjoy.
Our guesthouse is designed to make you feel right at home - in your eccentric aunties living room that is. Mid-century furniture pieces blend harmoniously with eclectic artworks, colourful cabinets, funky cushions and vintage armchairs. Curl up on the sofa with a good book, or retreat to your room for a much needed lie down, our casa will have you feeling right at home in no time.
Breakfast at our Lovely New Cafe
We have recently opened a brand new cafe, at the bottom of our guesthouse. Sign up for breakfast for an additional R150 and enjoy world-class coffee and a delicious continental breakfast on our rooftop overlooking stunning city views. Alternatively grab a coffee or croissant before heading out for your morning excursions.
