What a way to end our trip to Africa. This B&B was just what we needed to complete our trip on a very positive note. The B&B is located on a quiet street in the upscale neighborhood of Sea Point. It is gated and has secure free parking. There are several good restaurants as well as the hop-on hop-off bus... More

Ralf and Stephan strive for perfection. The bed was really comfortable, and the linen and towels were high quality. The breakfast, served outside, were excellent. The buffet changed daily and eggs were made to order. We received a very good orientation when we arrived. Wi-Fi strength was very good. It's an easy walk downhill to restaurants (but there was no...

It is difficult to find something new to say about this excellent B&b. The location is good, being in a quiet area in Sea Point close to the sea front and a stop for the Hop On/Hop Off bus which provides a good way to visit the main sights. Rooms are very comfortable with excellent beds, linen and towels and... More

We stayed at the African Home Guesthouse for five nights at the beginning of March. We stayed in their balcony rooms (number 6 and 7) upstairs. Both rooms and bathrooms were very clean, nicely decorated, and quiet. The balconies were a big plus on the warm days we had in Cape Town (up to 42 Degrees). They were offering a... More

Great hosts in this German run B&B. Rooms were well equipped (including international plug sockets), house-keeping was of a very high standard (including turn down service which we didn't expect from a B&B). Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. Great pool area with sun loungers and towels which was kept in an immaculate condition. Useful orientation from one of... More

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.

We stayed at African home guesthouse for 6 nights in the beginning of Feb 2015. What a wonderful place to stay. It is such a quaint old home refurbished into a B & B.

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
