Guido and Henk were great hosts promptly answering our many questions prior to our arrival. Their home, garden and roof top patio are exceptional! Breakfast is a ten. Their home is a fabulous location to explore Cape Town centrally located in one of the cities most charming neighborhoods. Breakfast is a ten. Don't miss it!”

Fantastic hosts

We stayed here for two nights and found Guido and Henk to be first class hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they served a wonderful breakfast in their beautiful garden with great coffees. The best example of what terrific hosts they are is that they even took the trouble to find out what had happened in the cricket the day we went to the test match, despite having no previous interest in the sport! And when I asked where the nearest postbox was, they instead took my postcards and posted them for me.

The room was spacious and stylish. The weather was incredibly hot the weekend we stayed and so the room was very warm as, in common with most B&Bs in South Africa, there was no A/C. The B&B is in a nice district, very central with plenty of bars and restaurants and a great Spar supermarket(Spar is not a luxury supermarket in the UK but in South Africa it seems more like Waitrose!). Parking is first come first served on street - we were lucky and got one immediately - and so kept the car there and just used Uber. Not really an issue if you can't get a space as their are multi-stories near by.

Thanks to Henk and Guido for a wonderful stay!

What a great place to stay in Cape Town!
The best thing about this place are the owners, Henk and Guido. They make your stay an unforgettable experience, very helpful with every inquiry you might have. Each morning an excellent breakfast is served outside in the garden. The rooftop terrace gives a magnificent view. And don't forget to ask for a homemade cappuccino, the best in town. The location is really central between down town and the waterfront and there are lots of really nice places to drink and eat. Definitely come back to this wonderful place.

Guido & Hank is really nice couple. I absolutely love the view from the little terrace full of flowers and greens facing Red Piano and watching the sunset of Table Mountain...

Our stay at purple house gave our S Africa holiday a great start. Brilliant location, superb room, wonderful breakfasts in the delightful garden but the real bonus is Guido and Henk. Absolutely wonderful hosts who were so friendly and helpful, we felt we were leaving friends behind when we left. From the moment we booked they offered advice via e mail and when there, suggestions and help to organise our days and evening meals helped make our stay memorable. Can not recommend this place highly enough.

Wonderful finish to our South African tour Well placed somewhat quirky house. The hosts are fantastic, really helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, they even chilled our wines in their own fridge! We would definitely recommend it, the area is safe and well placed for all the sights.

Accueil super sympa, chaleureux et convivial, fait tout pour que notre séjour et petit déjeuner se passe à merveille. Chambre et salle de bains spacieux, lumineux. Proche des quartiers animés et restaurants. Belle vue de Table Mountain depuis la petite terrasse du dernier étage

Henk und Guido sind total reizende und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Das Frühstück haben sie uns auf der geschützten Aussenterasse serviert und es gab so leckere Scones. Die Unterkunft liegt in der De Waterkant und von der V&A Waterfront nur 15 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt. Das einzige Zimmer dieser Unterkunft ist sehr stylish und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
