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. We see far too few of our neighbours from Namibia, one of our own favourite destinations. Thank you for the interesting chats and the positive vibe you brought to... More

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.

Wonderfully friendly place, Maria and Johan really make the place very homely and are very welcoming. Location is excellent and is right on the sea front. Breakfast is delicious and fresh and the rooms themselves are very spacious. Would come back in a flash. One note: when booking your room - make sure you ask for the type of beds... More

Such a nice place to stay! It's right near the ocean, I loved being able to hear the ocean from my bedroom! Johan and Maria are so welcoming & friendly. The breakfast spread is one of the best ones I've seen in all my travels. SO much good food! I would definitely stay here again

Dear Kirsten, Thank you for your review. WE really appreciate it.

We were genuinely impressed with the friendly service we received from Maria and Johan. Our room and bath room were nice and clean, the beds comfortable. We were given clean towels every day and had a varied breakfast. We would come back any time.

We had an amazing time at Avanti. The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast wonderful, and the staff friendly. Maria and Johan are amazing. They even drove us to Church because we were running late and there were no cabs in the area. Definite recommend!!
