We stayed at Avanti Guest House for 4 nights in September 2014 and received the warmest welcome from Johan and Maria, which set the tone for our entire stay; we felt they really cared to ensure we were comfortable and well looked after. The guest house is very well located in Bantry Bay and the room was perfectly clean and... 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

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
