The best part about working from home is that you don’t have to do it at home. Thanks to internet technology, you can do your job from anywhere in the country.

So, why not ditch those familiar views outside your window, and head for the sea views you could be enjoying in Cape town instead. These are the best places for remote work in Cape Town.

Remote Work at Its Finest

The easiest, and possibly best way to endure the nine-to-five in Cape Town is to top up your data on your smart phone, pack up your laptop, and ensconce yourself in a luxurious hideaway for a few days.

If you’re good at planning, and you can work at night, you can enjoy the city attractions by day, and clock up your office hours after curfew.

It’s the best way to comply with social distancing guidelines and enjoy the benefits of being in Cape Town.

Co-Working Spaces in Cape Town

If your job demands the kind of high-speed internet that’s beyond your mobile phone’s capabilities, you still have options.

These are the best co-working spaces where you can do your time in safety:

Workshop 17

These comprehensive workspaces feature fully-equipped meeting rooms, boardrooms, printers, and event spaces as well as hot desks, and standing desks.
Cleaning and uncapped Wi-Fi are included in the fee and there’s a café onsite to cater to your refreshment needs.

Workshop 17 has outlets at Gardens, the V&A Waterfront and southern Paarl. You can buy a day pass to any of these outlets or a five day package at a reduced rate.

Cube Workspace

Cube workspace offers customisable solutions where you can mix and match their services to suit your needs. You can also opt for the virtual office feature where you get a professional call answering service and a business address without having to hire an office.


If you need office space in Cape Town’s CBD, Seedspace is your go-to. They offer hot desks, high speed internet, storage space, and printing services according to your needs.

You can try out their facilities with a day-pass or opt for a customised long-term package.
