Our background

We met in 1983 and moved from Amsterdam to Cape Town in February 2010. Guido’s background was in nursing, Henk’s in management and consulting. We started the Purple House B&B in 2010. In the following year we started managing self-catering accommodations.

1. Our Languages
We speak English, German, French and Dutch.
2. Culture
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
3. Food
We also love good food and preparing it. Our breakfast in the B&B has been a hit with our guests. We also love visiting the newest restaurants in Cape Town. And we love to advise our guests which are restaurants they might like
4. Colour
We painted our house purple when we moved in and after that one after the other of the houses next to us introduced colourful facades, which has really added to the atmosphere in our street.
5. Sustainability
We try to run our business on a sustainable basis. Products we use are organic whenever we can obtain them.
