Although we were out of season for whales we saw two right whales from our front patio. Our hosts were extremely helpful and organised transfer from the airport, car hire and excursions. A wonderful breakfast of a small buffet style with cooked breakfast on request.

Johan & Maria are wonderful hosts and really looked after us even lending us their MyCiti bus passes and dropping us off at our next location after our week with them. The location at the junction of Sea Point... More

We got out of the Guest House, just turning left, we started to enjoy the gentle wind from the Atlantic. Half a hour later... More

Thanks Johan and Maria for a... More

Avanti guest house offers a warm stay just a stones throw from the beach and waterfront. The hosts are lovely people who endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Rooms are large, air conditioned and comfortable. Great value.

We felt completely at home at the Avanti. Room #1 had the perfect size and comfort for our needs. All the tour and transportation activities were planned and taken of by Johan and Maria. Just a overall wonderful vacation in Cape Town.
