Versatility and convenience of location. Beautiful scenery and landscapes that are within reach from the Mother City. These are the main reasons why Cape Town is one of the most popular locations for Fashion Photography, Commercial and Film Productions.

Cape Town has the infrastructure along with hardworking crews all with salaries up to 200% cheaper than in Europe. The lifestyle that Cape Town has to offer its production crews are among the best at a fraction of the cost compared to other countries. We are not called the Rainbow nation for no reason and our cuisine speaks for its excellence and is rated as extraordinary among people in the film industry.

So what about our accommodation?  At Elizabeth’s Guest House we offer you 4-star accommodation with the perfect blend of service, privacy and confidentiality, and all the comforts of home as well as office facilities such as wireless internet.  We pride ourselves on offering first-class service to all our guests, with all the facilities you need, freshly-cooked breakfasts to your exact specification and a "can-do" attitude at all times!

Feel like eating at "home"? Home cooked meals / dinners prepared with pleasure. Need to be picked up from airport or dropped off at location? Just let us know and we can arrange this on your behalf.

Whether you need breakfast at 6 am to get to an early shoot, directions to Cape Town's spectacular tourist destinations, or just a super "home-from-home", Elizabeth's is only a 3-minute walk away from  wide golden sand beaches, secluded suntraps, surfing meccas with spectacular views of Table Mountain, and within reach of all Cape Town has to offer, including Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront, Robben Island, Stellenbosch Winelands and the whole of the West Coast. 

We are on hand to assist in making your stay with us easy, convenient, comfortable and also as memorable as the latest movie you were a part of.  To see more details on Elizabeth’s, go to link: http://www.stayunlimited.com/accommodation/capetown/elizabeths-bloubergstrand.aspx

It is no wonder then that Cape Town has been taking on major projects like the latest pirate miniseries Black Sails. The project involved Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay as Executive Producer and was scheduled for a 16-week shoot.

“We are delighted to have been awarded Black Sails and it is further proof of South Africa’s international reputation for outstanding production skill and expertise.” - Vlokkie Gordon, Film Afrika

Other movies where you might recognise some of Cape Town’s famous scenery includes  Safe House with Denzel Washington, Dredd - Karl Urban and Lena Headey, Blood Diamond - Leonardo DiCaprio, Lord of War - Nicholas Cage and Invictus – Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon.
