We spent our last two days in Cape Town and stayed at the African Home Guest house. After a long day of driving we were exhausted when we arrived at the guest house. Seeing that we were stressed and tired, Ralf and Stephan the wonderful hosts of the guest house, had us escorted to the beautiful pool area for refreshments.... More

We stayed at the AfricanHome Guesthouse for two weeks in January 2015 and loved every second of our stay. First of all I would recommend to book directly with Ralf and Stephan, that's the best way to get in touch with them and get all help and kindness you could wish for even before you enter the gate at the...

WE stayed for 3 nights in an average size room with good en suite shower and very comfortable bed. No air con and disappointingly no private outside space, although great pool area and surround with ample sun loungers. Excellent breakfasts catering for all needs served in attractive courtyard. On site car parking. Owners and staff helpful and friendly.

The guys were fabulous with their restaurant recommendations and went so far as to make us reservations every night. They have wonderful taste. The breakfast every... More

We just returned from our holiday in the Cape, spending the last four days in Cape Town. African Home guesthouse was recommended by our son, who stayed there last year. The welcome extended by Ralph and Stefan made us feel immediately at home. Located in a quiet road in Sea Point, it is an ideal location on walking distance from... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights to get our Cape Town fix. Ralph & Stephan could not have been more helpful & friendly. We had a beautiful room with a very comfortable bed, breakfasts served out on a pretty, shaded terrace were superb and great staff. Would definitely come back here

The AfricanHome Guesthouse is warm and friendly in the most genuine of ways as your hosts and their staff see to all your needs and comforts in a perfect setting that is nestled in Sea Point, the best suburb in Cape Town, which is still the # 1 holiday spot in the world for me! You simply cannot beat the... More

Me and my friend just visited the African home guesthouse during Christmas! It's excellent value for money! Location is perfect: close to beach and city center, but quietly located to enjoy the perfect holiday in CT! Super warm welcome, very friendly and helpful staff! Ralf and Stephan even helped us organize our activities! The rooms are stylishly decorated, very clean... More

This review is well overdue-as we stayed last December holiday and my family is still talking about the delicious breakfasts, elegantly displayed-German sausages, fruit, pastry, eggs made to order-and enjoyed on the patio as you plan your day. Our hosts spoiled us-even presenting my son with a special gift for his birthday. They spent time highlighting maps and must-do's for... More
