“Idyllic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Idyllic guest house with a warm spirit. An atmosphere that gives you the feeling that you are at home, nothing less than high service. Some days I even wanted to stay ”at home” by the salt water pool all day although I was in amazing Cape Town. Highly recommended.

Comfortable and homely B&B with a personal touch and handy location. Secure parking for our hire car behind electric gate. Honesty box arrangement for snacks and drinks which comes in handy if you fancy sharing a bottle of wine in the evening.

We spent three nights at Antrim Villa in January 2014 and really loved it. The Staff were excellent, helpful, kind and very attentive. Ingrid, Joy and the others made our stay really comfortable. We especially appreciated the diningroom / breakfastroom with the Trustbar and open kitchen-area where we spent a few hours meeting other guests in a friendly atmosphere. The poolarea is a small oasis in the garden. Rooms are nicely decorated in a african-scandinavian mix. A short walk to the waterfront and a quick cab to the V&A Waterfront. We highly recommend Antrim Villa to all our friends .

We enjoyed every second of this gorgeous, well-designed and welcoming guesthouse well hidden from the outside world yet great location. We loved having the ocean boardwalk only few minutes away. The staff is genuinely friendly and very service minded - and always giving helpful advice for where to explore and what to eat. We love this place because of its intimate and welcoming vibe that we never get at a regular hotel. We will for certain come back to Antrim Villa and will recommend our friends to do the same.

Had a wonderful experience. Very convenient location and with a very friendly and helpful staff.
Everything I asked for they where right on it from getting us a great deal on car rental and booking an amazing safari.
Even when I had a little misshap with car they helped me to care of it with absolutely no stress.
The rooms are very clean and very cosy and I looked forward to the delicious breakfast every morning.
Loved chilling by the pool in afternoons
Felt like staying with family definetly comming back to Antrim Villa soon I hope

This is a gem of a B&B just off the main strip in Cape Town. I would highly recommend it and would definitely come back. The staff are pleasant and helpful. They recommended a fantastic restaurant for lunch and suggested places to walk (which includes almost everything in downtown!). Outstanding.

Stayed here for the Cape Argus cycle race and it was perfect. Quiet and relaxing with friendly and helpful staff. The location was perfect for the cyle race, close to Greenpiont stadium yet in a quiet street close to resturants and the seafront. Highly recommended and I will definitely stay here again without hesitation
