Booked Avanti for a week in February after reading reports on Trip Advisor and it definitely lived up to our expectations. 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

Wonderfull location! Just by a 2 minuts walk you get to the west beach of Cape Town. When my wife and I got into our room and arranged everything of my luggages as they should be. 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

Johan and Maria were warm and welcoming hosts. They were extremely helpful with our various logistical needs especially banks and transportation. Our room was spacious and clean with a partial ocean view from the deck off our room. The breakfast choices were delicious and varied to meet dietary demands. Great coffee! A definite repeat. 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.

Johan and Maria are exceptional hosts: warm, welcoming, and ready to assist with anything you need. After a long overland trip, staying at Avanti Guesthouse felt like home. Our room was spacious and clean; the breakfasts were amazing. Everything was fresh, from the fruit salad to a wonderful selection of cheeses and breads and great coffee made by Johan every... More

Loved staying here! close to the sea and just a 10 minute walk to restaurants and shops. The owners are so welcoming: lots of advice on what to see and how to get there, as well as help with car rentals and registering for activities. Felt like concierge service! we were always introduced over breakfast to other guests and that... More

At this very comfortable guest house the hospitality is warm, gracious and knowledgeable. Located a two minute walk from a beautiful ocean view walkway and a 15 minute walk from a handful of good restaurants. Breakfasts are healthy, varied and abundant, served in bright, elegantly decorated surroundings looking out on a colorful garden patio. Our room was large, clean, comfortable... More

This is a really good place to stay. The location is good, parking a bit tight but okay. The management is very helpful and knowledgable about the local area and the rest of the cape. I left a bag there my accident and was immeadaly notified to come back and get it .

I stayed at Avanti Guest House for 7 nights in Oct. 2014. It was a great base for exploring Cape Town. Located in Bantry Bay just a short walk down (approx 50 Meters) to the beautiful promenade along the ocean. Convenient for catching the local myCiti bus which gives a quick scenic (and very inexpensive) ride to the waterfront area... More
