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

A perfect B&B - in all aspects that one would wish for in this range of accommodation. Fabulous hosts, charming accommodation (very pleasantly put together and well appointed) and a great location. Easy walk to the hub of Sea Point. Loved the vegetarian breakfast omelette! Really enjoyed staying here, highly recommended and good value for money.

The house is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood, a short walk from the waterfront and the promenade. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent, best omelet I have had! There are a few secure parking spots. Hosts are very helpful.

Arriving late from the airport we still received a friendly welcome from Ralf and Stefan into their lovely African home. The house is very comfortable and has a beautiful pool. The excellent breakfast was thoughtfully prepared with and included many homemade foods. Service was efficient and friendly too. We had a car but we also took a short walk in... More

We enjoyed Stalingrad there for 3 days, a very warm welcoming, simple but nice room. Everything is modern and lovely, swimming pool is stunning and breakfast excellent, service is perfect, staff very friendly. Very convenient place in town with a car and we had good dinner on the main road very close (200m). Too bad they dońt organise dîners sometime..;)

We stayed her for a night after a hectic visit to a game reserve and elephant back safari near Port Elizabeth and many flights. We were three generations - Granny, Mother and two daughters in their 20s - and were all weary when we arrived. Ralf and Stefan were so welcoming and helpful. Even though they had warned we wouldn't... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1790 as the hunting lodge of Lord Nelson, the AfricanHome guesthouse is one of the oldest buildings in this suburb of Cape Town, situated only 2 blocks away from the Atlantic Seabord. It is a very peaceful oasis in the middle of this buzzling city, in walking distance to many restaurants and to the Waterfront, just 2 km away from Clifton Beaches and famous Long Street. New German owners who offer a fabulous breakfast buffet. Enjoy a relaxing day at the huge sparkling salt water pool being spoilt from our service. ... more   less
