We came upon African Violet on line. I called many places and this was the only one that really followed through with me and was helpful. Well we stayed there and the great service over the phone continued throughout the entire stay. These cottages are hand built by the owners and have a unique and beautiful style all to their...

We received a very warm welcome, Jenny and her family were very hospitable! You see that this family run this guesthouse with heart and soul. They were always happy to provide us with anything we needed. The suite we had was very cozy! It was a pity that the weither was bad, but otherwise you have a very beautifull view!... More

African Violet was the perfect base for us to explore Cape Town, Cape Point and the winelands with Jenni and Rob being excellent hosts. Everything we needed had been thought of. We stayed in the Loft suite which was great for 3 of us (2 adults and 8 year old) and we made full use of the pool, deck area... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the African Violet. We stayed in the Courtyard Suite which was well-appointed, stylishly decorated and proved to be a splendid home away from home while in Cape Town. The property itself, the common areas and the other suites, is creatively designed and well-thought out. You have your privacy with your separate entrances, but can... More

We felt perfectly comfortable at the African Violet. Very nice rooms and a great view. Ideal starting point to explore CapeTown and the surrounding area. The hosts are very friendly and gave us very helpful recommendations about nearby top restaurants and places of excursions.

We have been coming to African Violet for three years now and every year it feels more like home - with a bit extra. The acommodation is ideal for us as we have two teenage daughters who have their own space. We are busy, out and about every day but thoroughly enjoy time around the lapa, pool and garden as...
