Combine German Engineering, a passion for perfection, and Cape Town style—and you have African Home.
Located on a hill, in quiet residential neighborhood in SeaPoint. We hike a lot, so for us it’s an easy walk to: a variety of restaurants; cafes; small superette-type shops; the bus-stop for the invaluable hop-on/hop-off CitySightseeing Cape Town Tour Bus; and the paved walking/jogging path that hugs the Atlantic shoreline. This world-class guest house, is a great base for independent exploration of Cape Town, with or without a car.
Light, airy rooms are literally spotless. Beds & bedding are remarkably comfortable. So comfortable, in fact, that we did not miss our bed at home, at all. Showers are hot & have great water pressure.
Lots of extras: night security, friendly and very accommodating support staff, turn-down service, slippers, bathrobes, room safes, candle & torch lit courtyard at night, prompt laundry service for a small fee (no need to over-pack), light lunches and beverage service available for a very reasonable fee, sparkling swimming pool, and seamless worry-free arrangement of airport transfer on day of arrival/departure.
Generous and kind—Ralf, Stephan, and their entire support staff, uphold high standards. They live with integrity—quietly operating in many ways that make this a good choice for responsible/green travel. This was such a refreshing break from the plastic spoons, paper cups and styrofoam plates that have sadly become the norm in American culture.
Yes, we can confirm all the fabulous reviews that rave about their Signature Breakfast—But—African Home is much more than that!
