“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We arrived here as walk ins quite late having found nowhere to stay in Camps Bay or Cape Town due to the opening of Parliament. It was during the end of the summer season and we were getting desperate . However, what a find !
The attention to detail is incredible and the furniture exquisite . Alma was an amazing host and always ready to help with anything to help you enjoy your stay . Furthermore the breakfast was
delicious with a level of service I have not experienced anywhere else in the world.
Unfortunately we could only stay one night due to full occupancy but directly next door is Alma's daughter who has a 4 star b and b which was also excellent in its own right and allows you to use the small pool and garden of Villa Afrique .

My wife and I treated our self's to a weekend at Villa Afrique. We blown away but the service we were treated to. From the very moment we walk in the front door we were warmly welcomed by Alma. Her attention to the smallest detail shows in every aspect of Villa Afrique. Not to mention the wonderful breakfast we enjoyed around the pool. Alma and her husband Deon are always there to answer any questions we had on what to do for the day or where to eat. We enjoyed the privacy we were give and will be staying there again when next in town.

Many thanks Alma and Deon for a memorable stay.

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Alma into her beautiful home. we have stayed in many places including very expensive hotels, but nothing can compare to the friendliness and attention to detail we found here. Everthing was spotlessly clean and the breakfast and presentation should be what every establishment should strive to achieve. We felt we had been staying in the beautiful home of very good friends. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town.

We stayed for the second time in Villa Afrique, because for us it is one of the best B&B's around Cape Town. Alma is a great host and let you feel at home from the first start.
It is situated at a great place near Capa Town, Chapman's Peak and other touristique venues.
When in South Africa again, we certainly come back.

I am sure that Alma the owner spends half of day checking around if everything is in order, ad the ramains of her day is probably spent in giving advices to her guests and solving their problems.... A place were you feel at home. A beautitiful, charming home. Thanks Alma and Deon

I was very happy with my stay at Villa Afrique. Alma, the Villa owner, helped me with all my plans. She arranged my airport pick up (she came herself!), touring, shopping, a safari excursion, and a helicopter tour. Alma really went beyond my expectations when she arranged for a private tour of a diamond cutting and jewelry house. My accommodations were 5 star plus. I had a lovely time. It really was the nicest, most stress free vacation I have ever taken. Judy B.

What a lucky find - we were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. The accommodation is excellent and the attention to detail is evident everywhere. The breakfast table was a visual delight and the breakfasts were superb. Alma is an amazing host and we would thoroughly recommend Villa Afrique to anyone absolutely First Class.
