We stayed at an African Villa for three nights. Our first visit had been many years ago, and we had very fond memories. We were not disappointed with our second visit! The hosts are as gracious as ever, and they were particularly kind in helping to make arrangements when my husband's flight was repeatedly delayed. Breakfasts are wonderful and creative.... More

The place was like a boutique hotel, the building was an old design that was cleverly transformed by modern interior design and decor. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a great spread. Would definitely stay there again, if we return to Cape Town.

This is a fabulous place to stay for your Cape Town visit. We stayed here for 3 nights in October at the end of a 5 week journey around southern Africa. The villa is located in a quiet, safe residential area within walking distance of central Cape Town. Lots of good restaurants nearby. The Villa's name is discreetly marked below... More

What a find. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome with a thorough and warm introduction to the Villa. The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The attention to detail was amazing. Every time we set out on foot we were provided with a clear and concise map with instructions, so we arrived flustered at our destinations. The... More

This spacious, peaceful, & beautifully decorated guest house is the perfect start to a Cape Town visit. The owners & staff make it a priority to help you get oriented & make the best of your visit. Breakfast is delicious, & great restaurants are within a short walk.

We stayed here for 5 nights in mid - August and loved it! We made a mistake when booking, however they were very accommodating and made us feel most welcome. Keith, Cindy and Louis (we didn't meet Jimmy) were all very helpful in making local recommendations and assisting with rental car bookings etc. Our room was beautiful and had great... More

The accomodations are fantastic. The villa is very clean and spacious. The staff is incredibly friendly with the owners meeting with each guest each morning to help with the day's itinerary and provide local suggestions. The breakfest is always a delight with the help of the four staff ladies who add to the experience. Foreign land and cities we came... More

...the minute you walk through the door and meet the innkeeper for the first time that you have arrived someplace special. We stayed her for 5 nights in September, the final stop on a trip that included a short safari in Kruger park. We couldn't have asked for more. The staff was wonderful - warm and friendly and helpful -... More

Stayed here twice in early September. The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood and close to some excellent restaurants. We really enjoyed the old houses, the African décor, the friendly staff, good breakfast and excellent advice about things to do. Room was large and well appointed with very comfy bed!
