Cher has done a great job renovating and designing guest rooms, all with well-thought use of space. Breakfasts prepared and served by the owner or the friendly staff. We would recommend the Avatara to anyone visiting Cape Town for a night or for weeks. Located close to activities and a large choice of restaurants, and shopping, within walking distance or... More

Great Guest House, beautiful bedroom & fantastic staff. It felt like a home away from home, even better. The location is very good and convenient (10 minutes’ walk to the V&A Waterfront, 2 minutes from some pubs and grocery stores etc.). The room and bathroom are beautiful and very comfortable. The kitchen and the lounge, where you can take your... More

We stayed for 14 nights at the Avatara Guesthouse and every day was perfect. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, very safe place with only a short walk into the centre, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We will definitely be staying at the Avatara again! Dan & Ella from England

From the moment I steped into Avatara I felt home. I was picked up at the airport as agreed and I was greeted by Cher with a warm cup of tea. It was late at night, but she waited until I arrived. The location of the guesthouse was perfect, and all my wishes were immediately attended to. I could not... More

My recent four-night September 2014 stay at Atavara was lovely. I felt safe, comfortable, well-cared for, and fortunate. What a find. I took a chance with online recommendations, after searching through what must be hundreds of guest houses and hotels in Cape Town, while looking at a flat map to see where I might end up. As it turned out,... More

A nice guesthouse in a good neighborhood in Cape Town. The owner is a very nice person and she is always trying to get guests feel at home. The room was cozy and the bed was really comfortable. However, as there are wooden floors all over the place – a fact that is nice and makes the house have a... More

I travel mainly on business and managed to grab a few days in Cape Town at the end of a business trip and instead of staying in my normal cooperate hotel decided to pick a guest house and what a pleasurable experience it was. I was attracted to the Avatara on the internet by the pictures of the tranquil, well... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Avatara in the first week of February 2014, while in Cape Town on a business trip. Avatara is run by Cher and her assistant Melanie who are organised, efficient, most welcoming and run an excellent guest house. Avatara is located a short distance above the Main Road in Green Point, which is... More
