The place is just brilliant! Very nice and clean rooms, great view from the balcony and very nice interior decoration. The staff is very friendly and helpful! We very much enjoyed the great breakfast in our suite. Very tasty! Great place to stay for a honeymoon!

Due to a bad experience at our previous stop, we arranged to arrive at the Villa Afrikana two days before our scheduled booking. Despite this being at less than 24 hours notice Ross and Bianca were incredible accommodating. This included us having to experience two of their rooms for the first two nights before we moved into the room we... More

We stayed here for three nights in May, and it was the most idyllic three nights. Ross, Bianca and their wonderful staff cannot do enough for you. They think of everything, it is beautiful, luxurious and we could have stayed forever. Thank you! We will be back

Villa Afrikana is a first class guest house. It is sleek and modern, but very comfortable, with spectacular views of the town and the water. Bianca and Ross provide a warm welcome and an attentive presence without being in any way overbearing. Our suite was very comfortable and without a doubt the nicest room we had in South Africa.
