We spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon at Africabana in January 2012. Leigh and her staff were absolutely incredible throughout, so much so that we decided to go back for a final 2 days at the end of the trip. The level of service was fantastic, everything was thought of and personal to individual guest needs, we hardly... More

I have hesitated to write this review as our host was so friendly, but we stayed in multiple guest houses in Cape Town and this one was the most disappointing and the most expensive. Don’t let the swanky website fool you – the décor in this place has not been refurbished since circa 1981. Not only that, the walls are... More

Leigh the owner made our stay at her lovely B&B the perfect start to our holiday. The rooms were spotless, crisp linen, magnificent views, sat tv, great showers, spacious, clean, air con, etc etc. Leigh also did the little things that make a difference, we stayed over Easter and on Easter Sunday there was a dish of Easter eggs on...

Beautiful doesn't even describe this place! Amazing view of the ocean, modern and super clean luxurious room and huge bathroom! Service was impeccable! Leigh is like someone you've known your entire life. We sat down in chairs by the pool just to relax after a day of sightseeing and Leigh brought wine and snacks to us! She knows all the... More

Steep driveway but there are spots to park at the... More

Great accommodation and location on the periphery of Camps Bay which suited us perfectly for our final week in Cape Town. The accommodation is stunning and the overall pros of Africabana is the "can do" attitude of the staff, especially Simon and Dhuma, and of course our host, Leigh. Nothing was too much trouble from arranging any kind of transportation,... More

Perfect, couldn't have wanted / expected / needed more. Room was sumptuous and had the most gorgeous views of the South Atlantic Ocean. There was a complementary bar and a basket of goodies on arrival, not to mention a bottle of bubbly! Only a 20 minute coastal walk from the main strip of restaurants and shops in Camp Bay. Leigh...

Visited Leigh and her staff, once again, this time with my daughters, both in thier twenties and on holiday from the UK. They were as impressed as I always am, with the relaxing views over the atlantic ocean, fantastic breakfasts, fabulous service and daily laundry service of Africabana. How many Luxury Guest House owners, would bother to know our first... More

I can't recommend this place highly enough. Leigh, Simon and the staff could not have been more helpful and they spoiled us. Our room had the most spectacular view of the ocean. The garden and pool area, though small, had spectacular views. We were able to easily walk into Camps Bay in the evening. There's a small cove just across... More

We spent 6 wonderful days at Africabana and we totally loved it! The house and the view is perfect and the breakfast is so nice that you spend 1 hour having breakfast every day. But it is Leigh and her staff who really make your vacation memorable. Leigh really took care of us and helped us with so many things... More
