Obviously you can see from ratings that this place is pretty exceptional. The owners are devoted to giving their guests a great experience, and succeed in every way. I will add that it is a fantastic location, just a few meters from the beach, a few minutes drive from table mountain, and about 7 minutes walk from supermarket, restaurants, and... More

My husband and I stayed at Anti Guesthouse this past weekend. We do hotels and self-catering most of the time, so this was my first time in a guest house. Maria and Johan are the best - treated us like friends/family! We had a warm welcome and from the get-go it felt as if you we were home. The room... More

This review is a long time coming, but I couldn't let Johan and Maria's Avanti Guesthouse go uncelebrated. My wife and I went to Cape Town on our honeymoon, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. From the delicious breakfast spread each morning to Johan and Maria's enthusiasm, kindness, and generous excursion arranging skills, Avanti can't be... More

The owners and the staff were very friendly and helpfully, with providing tips on sites to visit and a beautifully breakfast selection each morning. My wife and I utilized the Red City Hop on Hop off bus while in Cape Town and having 2 stops fairly close to the Avanti was very nice. Walking to the waterfront and local restaurants... More

We had a great stay here, Johan and Maria are lovely hosts. Very comfy bed, great shower and a delicious breakfast. Happy to recommend Avanti Guesthouse as a place to stay in Cape Town, just like staying with friends or relatives. Close to the water, not too far to the shops

Right from the onset, we were welcomed with friendliness unparalleled anywhere. Johan and Mari made our stay better than when we are at our own home, and we will from now on, always stay with them when in Cape Town. Breakfast was the best time to be there. They will introduce you to all other guests, and chat with everyone... More

Dear Norman & Bee, Wow! You have really been nice to us. Thank you so much for the nice review. It was a pleasure having real Namibians staying for a change.

What a little gem, such a lovely guest house and the owners make you feel so welcome it is like being at home. It is only small, so book early so not to be disappointed.

Dear Martyn & Michelle, Thank you for super review. We notice that you are senior reviewers and that is even more rewarding and gratifying to receive your positive comments. We also found it interesting that you commented on the room and the view from the balcony. We feel very strongly about not creating expectations with misleading promises of sea views.... More

We stayed a week here in January 2014. It was excellent value for money and ideally situated for access to the Cape Town Waterfront and in the other direction the beaches at Clifton, Camps Bay and Hout Bay. Our room was spacious spotlessly clean and had a balcony with glimpses of the sea. Breakfasts were delicious with plenty of variety.... More

Very enjoyable stay in central location- close to rapid transfer bus stop, and short drive to city centre. Great breakfast, very neat room and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend this guesthouse to my friends and family.
