About Us

We came from Amsterdam to Cape Town in February 2010. Later that year we started the Purple House B&B.

We speak English, German, French and Dutch. We try to run our business on a sustainable basis.
Products we use are organic whenever we can obtain them.

We love theatre, concerts and museums, so we are happy to advise you on what is on what Cape Town
has to offer in that field. We also love good food and preparing it.

Purple House in their December 2010 issue in an article on stylish exterior coating.
