A calm, relaxing colonial home where quiet staff seem to intuite guests' needs. We felt perfectly at home. Spotless, elegant décor .Thanks to Maureen for the lovely breakfasts, to Pepe for expert driving, and to Joy for the dinner reservation overlooking the ocean. Myler

We stayed for several days in May and had the house to ourselves. It is beautifully decorated in an African-Scandinavian style. There is a lovely common area with drinks and snacks. Our room was small but comfortable. The best part about our stay, though, was the fabulous breakfast spread prepared by Maureen. Unfortunately, we did have a few complaints. One... More

Travelling solo to Cape town was a bit daunting, but the staff and the welcoming that I received from the Antrim Villa team made it an absolute pleasure. The staff was friendly and helpful and I felt very much at home. I would definitely go back and next time I will take my family as well.

I went to Antrim Villa a couple of years ago and that was great but when I visited it in April it was not as good. The service was not as good and the lady who runs it now is rude and not very helpful. There are other guest houses in Cape Town that are better, such as Cheviot Place!

Yes it's true, I've been to Antrim Villa again and I loved it. It's like coming home. The staff even remembered my name and little things like that makes a huge difference.

Antrim Villa is a lovely base in Capetown. Beautifully decorated, warm and helpful staff, comfortable beds and a very relaxing little garden. I especially appriciated the closeness to the sea, taking morning walks before breakfast, what a treat! And then after, a coffee and a chat with locals at Giovanni´s...

The Antrim made an all round positive impression. The location (Green Point) is convenient, not in the bustling centre but not in the touristic ghetto either. It is within walking distance to the V&A waterfront and the centre (15 / 20min), but if you feel unsafe (e.g. at night) it's only a short taxi ride away (from the waterfront less... More

My wife and I spent a couple of nights at the villa in January 2014 and were delighted by the atmosphere and location. Not too far from the Waterfront but in a very quiet and restful area. Our room was rather small but charming and very well planned. The staff at Antrim was extremely friendly and helpful and you really... More

Idyllic guest house with a warm spirit. An atmosphere that gives you the feeling that you are at home, nothing less than high service. Some days I even wanted to stay ”at home” by the salt water pool all day although I was in amazing Cape Town. Highly recommended.
