this guest house was the best we stayed at during our 2 week road trip in SA. We stayed for 3 nights at the end of October. Airport transfers were organised perfectly. The rooms were large, comfortable with beautiful decor and had everything you needed inside. The pool and outside areas were lovely, and the breakfast patio very cute. The... More

WONDERFULL!!! My wife and I spent 4 days at the African Home to celebrate our 25 years marriage anniversary. The website of the African Home and the owners Ralf and Stephan are THE Revolution in "Less is More". Simple words are not enough to their dedications of making this B&B the best in Cape Town. Ralf/Stephan you made our dream... More

Where do I start? After researching where to stay on our first trip to Cape Town, it became very clear African Home Guesthouse was the place to stay. From my first inquiry, Ralf was very helpful and that continued through out the stay. We rented a car and drove to the Guesthouse and when we could not find the street,... More

We were impressed with the African Home Guesthouse before we even arrived. Ralf took the trouble to answer general queries and even organised a taxi to meet us at the airport. We were given a very warm welcome and immediately felt at home. The guest house is beautifully furnished, the garden and pool area are both lovely. There was plenty... More

My father and I stayed in AfricanHome for three nights in September. The two owners were extremely helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The room was very nice and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were particularly delicious, particularly for those who enjoy a German-style breakfast (though there was plenty of variety for those who don't). The BnB is... More

This excellent managed place leaves nothing to be desired. The suberb location means you are within easy stumbeling distance of bars and restaurants. Gorgeous contemporary-styled guesthouse with 8 spacious rooms which are elegant decorated. The delicious breakfast is served by gracious staff. What makes this place so outstanding and perfect, is the excellent service by its owners. We felt at... More

We stayed five nights at this wonderful place in early April. Everything was top rate. Our room was very comfortable with a lovely balcony view over the pool area and even the sea in the distance. Rolf and Stephan were charming hosts and did so much to make our stay wonderful. They helped us plan our days, arranged for drivers,... More
