Loved staying here! close to the sea and just a 10 minute walk to restaurants and shops. The owners are so welcoming: lots of advice on what to see and how to get there, as well as help with car rentals and registering for activities. Felt like concierge service! we were always introduced over breakfast to other guests and that... More

At this very comfortable guest house the hospitality is warm, gracious and knowledgeable. Located a two minute walk from a beautiful ocean view walkway and a 15 minute walk from a handful of good restaurants. Breakfasts are healthy, varied and abundant, served in bright, elegantly decorated surroundings looking out on a colorful garden patio. Our room was large, clean, comfortable... More

This is a really good place to stay. The location is good, parking a bit tight but okay. The management is very helpful and knowledgable about the local area and the rest of the cape. I left a bag there my accident and was immeadaly notified to come back and get it .

I stayed at Avanti Guest House for 7 nights in Oct. 2014. It was a great base for exploring Cape Town. Located in Bantry Bay just a short walk down (approx 50 Meters) to the beautiful promenade along the ocean. Convenient for catching the local myCiti bus which gives a quick scenic (and very inexpensive) ride to the waterfront area... More

We stayed 2 nights at Avanti while touring Cape Town. Avanti is located less than 1/2 block from the ocean and the lovely promenade along the water. The bus stop for town (and for the double decker red tour bus) is a 5 minute walk and a few minutes further, a street with shops and some great restaurants for dinner.... More

Great location, few minutes to table top, downtown Capetown, V&A waterfront. Nice views of the ocean and lions head from the veranda. Enjoy a walk along the waterfront. Delightful breakfast and conversation with Maria and Johan, Owners of the property. Quiet, comfortable, and clean. On sight parking a big plus.

The owners were kind and happy to share about their culture and offered a great deal of hospitality. The books in the lounge provided interesting reading to understand more about some of the history of South Africa. Thankfully the myCiti bus can take you there via a short walk. The breakfast was nice, the room was tidy, and we slept... More
