  1. Guido and Henk were the perfect hosts! From giving us fabulous recommendations of places to visit, helping us with reservations, to great conversations and by far, the best morning coffee, our stay at Purple House was nothing short of a dream. Purple House is located very centrally and in a lovely neighbourhood. Would highly recommend your stay in Cape Town at Purple House.

  2. Great stay in a great location with great hosts! Thanks!
    We had a great stay in Cape Town at the Purple House! The hosts, Guido and Henk, are running the lodge with care and passion, and as guest you can see and feel that. They helped us ongoingly in various questions we had (e.g. taxi bookings etc.). The breakfast was lovely prepared on the terrace, and the roof top terrace is great as well. The overall location is perfectly located – there are bars and restaurants around the block. We would chose to stay at Purple House again, when we will come to Cape Town again! Guido and Henk, many thanks to you for taking care of us and the nice conversations we had!

  3. Excellent and comfortable

    We had the best stay! Guido and Henk were very welcoming and took excellent care of us. Including securing transport to and from the airport and a tour of the Cape of Good Hope to Boulder Beach. The accommodations were very nice and the location was centrally located, we were able to easily walk to the Waterfront and the main station for the Hop on Hop off tours.

  4. wat een hartelijke ontvangst. Een warm bad. Niets is jullie teveel. De kamer is prachtig en tot in de puntjes verzorgd. Ontbijt is heerlijk. We waren er veel te kort. Volgende keer komen we zeker weer naar Purple House. Nogmaals dank.
    Rotterdam, the Netherlands

  5. Superhyvä! Sijainti erinomainen – 15 min kävely Waterfrontiin. Terveellinen ja raikas aamiainen. Palvelualttiit isännät. Modernit ja siistiit huoneet. Turvallinen ympäristö mistä löytyy ruokailupaikkoja.
    Vaasa, Finland

  6. I really enjoyed my stay at Purple House. Guido and Henk are perfect hosts. I had to make a last minute change and they couldn’t have been more accomodating. The room is spacious, private, clean and comfortable and the bathroom is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. The location is convenient for most places you want to go to in Cape Town as it is close to the hop-on- hop-off bus and to downtown.
    Buckingham, England

  7. Most of all the warm, personal welcome by Guido and Henk. But I also would like to mention that the “room” in the Purple House is more a suite (with beautiful design seating area) than a room. The kind of luxury of a boutique hotel (the bathroom is huge, beautifully restored but with original wood floorboards, and has a bath tub + huge rainshower) , attention to detail in the smallest things (artwork made by local artists) and the personal touch of our hosts, who helped us with everything (booking tickets to Table Mountain,etc).

  8. Best Place to Stay in Cape Town

    The Purple house was a fabulous place to stay being so close to everything. A short walk to the waterfront, great restaurants and the town centre. The owners were fantastic! Super friendly, helpful and welcoming. They were always ready to help with advice , ideas or suggestions to make my stay the incredible stay it was. I would highly recommend the Purple House to anyone looking to stay in Cape Town. Big Thank You to guys for taking care of everything.

  9. Ottima ospitalità
    Colazione fantastica. Il titolare della struttura è stato molto gentile e disponibile.

  10. L’accueil de mes hôtes, la chambre magnifique et très spacieuse, le quartier
    Lausanne, Switzerland

  11. Location, price and hospitality couldn’t be better

    This really is a gem with everything you need. We are very grateful we got to stay here. The house is lovely, the room is spacious and the bathroom is luxurious. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends.

  12. Absolutely fantastic! Perfect location, beautiful place and phenomenal hosts! Highly recommended

  13. Toller Ausgangspunkt für die City. Das Frühstück war super lecker und nach unseren Wünschen zubereitet. Der Service war hervorragend. Unsere holländischen Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Tips gab es jede Menge. Das Zimmer geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Bad war ein kleines Highlight. Wir können die Unterkunft absolut weiterempfehlen. Die Lage im Viertel war sehr gut. Viele Ziele war zu Fuß zu erreichen

  14. Super! Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Gute Tipps. Ein super Badezimmer. 5 stars
    Heidelberg, Germany

  15. Perfection in a B& B The Purple House is the perfect B&B. The hosts were so infinitely accommodating and the suite was immaculate. The bathroom fixtures were Philip Stark modern, the bedroom linens were impossibly white. Breakfast was perfectly presented each morning, with fresh fruit and cappuccino– I might have had more but wanted to save space for Cape Town’s amazing assortment of restaurants.. Great stay!
    St Croix, US Virgin Islands

  16. Lovely house and great location The owners/managers were delightful and helpful.

  17. Очень добрые и заботливые хозяева, готовы прийти на помощь в любую минуту или про сто поговорить. Готовят очень вкусные завтраки. Дом чистый, красивый, в отделки и деталях интерьера использовано много натуральных материалов. Есть внутренний дворик с чудесным садом и терраса на крыше с видом на столовую гору. И там и там можно кушать, пить чай/кофе или просто наслаждаться видом. В доме хороший быстрый и бесплатный вай-фай, поэтому можно постоянно оставаться на связи со своими родственниками, друзьями и коллегами. Местоположение очень хорошее: в двух минутах ходьбы есть большой торговый центр с супермаркетом, остановка автобуса. До Ватерфронта можно дойти за 15 минут
    Novosibirsk, Russia

  18. Geweldig verblijf gehad bij Henk en Guido! Heel warm welkom. Veel tips gekregen over Kaapstad. Mooie ruime kamer met een hele mooie badkamer. Heerlijk gezeten op het dakterras met uitzicht op de Tafelberg. Heel goed ontbijt en hele lekkere cappuchino. Hele goede locatie om Kaapstad te verkennen.
    Eexterveenschekanaal, the Netherlands

  19. Superb
    Great welcome by landlords. Breakfast was superb. Proximity to V&A Waterfront, Cape Quarter and restaurants. Highly recommended.

  20. Colourful house, comfortable room, amazing location; warm hosts… perfectly Cape Town!

    I travelled with my mother, we took the bed and breakfast room. Henk and Guido were absolutely lovely hosts and breakfast was on time and delicious. They have two adorable cats, big plus for me! The bedroom and bathroom were beautiful, and with a heater.for Cape Town winter. It;s close to the V&A and City Point (10-15 min walk to both) and some great restaurants just outside the B&B.
    Bangalore, India

  21. Henk and Guido could not have made me feel more welcome. Everything was as described with real attention to detail. The room is spacious, clean, stylish and comfortable and the bathroom amenities are fab. Breakfast outside in the courtyard was plentiful and would have been a lot warmer in summer but the big fleece blanket was lovely! Wonderful view toward table mountain over the roof tops from the roof terrace too. The classy shopping mall, the Italian restaurant and the piano bar were all really close and excellent. They called a taxi for me and assisted with my luggage – true gents 😀 – Thanks guys 🙂
    Jamestown, St Helena

  22. super :). immer wieder gern
    Sehr, sehr nette Gastgeber, mit viel Geschmack und Liebe zum Detail. Wenn wir wieder nach Kapstadt kommen dann ist das Purple House ein muss. Leider waren die Gastgeber ausgebucht sonst hätten wir verlängert.
    Hamburg, Germany

  23. Spacious, comfortable and well situated
    Spent a week in Green Point and had the pleasure to stay at the Purple House situated in one of the small residential blocks in the Cape Quater. The Room and Bathroom was spacious and comfortable and my hosts was always friendly and accommodating.
    Pretoria, South Africa

  24. Wohlfühlunterkunft mit sehr engagierten Gastgebern

    Die persönliche Betreuung durch Guido und Henk, sehr offen und warmherzig und ihre tollen Tipps für jegliche Unternehnmung, die Restaurantipps unbedingt annehmen. Klasse Frühstück, frischer gepresster Saft, Bio-Müsli und richtig leckerer Kaffee. Jederzeit wieder, falls wir nochmal nach Kapstadt kommen.
    St. Georgen, Germany

  25. The Purple House couldn’t be better!
    The welcome was great, the accommodation and location were fantastic too.
    Salisbury, U.K

  26. Centrally located in quiet street in Waterkant area, yet surrounded by all types restaurants, bars and boutiques. Just a 10 minutes stroll to Waterfront and only 5 minutes to Bo Kaap. You will love this one room B&B, with good bed and bathroom. The owners will do anything to make you feel comfortable and enjoy sharing their knowledge to make your visit to Cape Town a wonderful experience. Enjoy the delicious breakfast on the cozy patio and do not miss the rooftop view on Table Mountain. Free parking in the street. Best value for money deal in Cape Town. If you want even more privacy or have your own fridge/kitchen opt for one of the nice apartments they have available!
    Phuket, Thailand

  27. “6 großartige Tage im Purple House”

    Ich kam an und war sofort zu Hause. Ich habe mich so wohl gefühlt, dass die Woche viel zu schnell verging. Das Zimmer ist groß und hat ein großartiges Bad. Von der Dachterrasse mag man gar nicht wieder gehen. Henk und Guido sind perfekte Gastgeber und tolle Berater in allen Fragen, die man als Kapstadt-Erstbesucher so hat. Wenn ich wieder in Kapstadt bin, wohne ich im Purple House.
    Hamburg, Germany

  28. Warm and friendly, amazing apartment Guido and Henk were exceptional hosts who welcomed us to Cape Town like friends. We received great advice as to restaurants etc and breakfast on the terrace was tasty, comprehensive and a great start to our trip. We then moved to Emma’s self-catering apartment which is fabulous, with everything you need including an even more AMAZING roof terrace! The neighbourhood is cute, hip, convenient and we felt very safe. Highly recommended.
    Fairlight, Australia

  29. Sehr freundliche und aufmerksame Gastgeber. Super Frühstück, mitten im Zentrum und sehr gute Restaurants in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Herrlicher Blick auf den Tafelberg von der herzigen Dachterrasse aus. Zu Fuss nur 15 Minuten zur Waterfront.
    Oberglatt, Switzerland

  30. Es war ein wundervoll entspannter Urlaub bei euch in einem top sauberen Zimmer, das geschmackvoll eingerichtet war. Die Gegend ist ideal: ruhig für die Nacht zum schlafen und tagsüber alles in Laufentfernung! Wir möchten wiederkommen. Guido und Henk sind zwei sehr nette zuvorkommende Menschen, die mit ihrem leckeren frisch zubereiteten Frühstück, den Tag perfekt starten lassen.
    Kleve, Germany

  31. Vorgemerkt für unsere nächste Reise nach Kapstadt

    Auch wenn wir nur eine Nacht im Purple House waren, wurde wir sehr freundlich empfangen, umsorgt und mit guten Ideen für den Aufenthalt ausgestattet

  32. 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!”

  33. 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!
    Lincoln, United Kingdom

  34. 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.
    Netherlands and Belgium

  35. 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…
    Shnghai, China

  36. 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.
    United Kingdom

  37. Henk and Guido are the best hosts. Perfect balance between personal contact and privacy. Breakfast is AWESOME. The room is spacious and nicely designed. We loved it all.
    Tel Aviv, Israel

  38. 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.
    Lincoln, United Kingdom

  39. 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

  40. Very Impressive, Super Hosts
    Warrington, United Kingdom

  41. 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.
    Ruesselsheim, Germany

  42. We only stayed at our last night in Cape Town, but this was a great find. Guido and Henk were excellent hosts. Our room was lovely and close to many restaurants and bars. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the Quaint Garden. Great value and we would definitely consider staying in Cape Town.
    Edinburgh, Scotland

  43. Fantastic gastheren, heerlijk grote slaapkamer met mooie badkamer. In de buurt geweldige locatie with leuke cafeetjes en restaurants.
    Rotterdam, the Netherlands

  44. Perfect locatie with the hoogtepunten van Kaapstad in de buurt. Op loopafstand van een aantal mooie restaurants. Het uitgebreide ontbijt become geserveerd in a sufervolle binnentuin. De kamer was ruin en smaakvol in court with a goed bed een heerlijke douche. De ownen zijn erg attent en hebben veel tips voor activiteiten en restaurants.
    Winterswijk, the Netherlands

  45. Uitstekende service, lekker ontbijt, huiselijke sfeer, modern en propere kamer / badkamer, veilige ligging. Top!
    Tervuren, Belgium

  46. I spent 5 nights in “Purple House”. It is incredibly beautiful there. The owners Henk and Guido are the perfect hosts. Your stylish guest room and the corresponding spacious designer bathroom leave nothing to be desired. The breakfast in the leafy courtyard is the perfect start to an active day. Tips and information for activities were always first class. The rooftop terrace with phenomenal views is the ideal place to end a nice day with a glass of wine. In addition, the location is perfect. Although there are a number of interesting restaurants and bars in the neighborhood, it is quiet and you can sleep well with the windows open. I liked it so much that I will definitely come back 🙂

  47. Guido and Henk are excellent hosts and genuinely interested in their guests. B & B in restored old townhouse with cafes, restaurants and supermarket a few steps away. Nice, large room with excellent bathroom. Breakfast taken in small garden with lots of plants. Town center and V & A Waterfront within reasonable walking distance. Easy to find street parking in front of house outside shopping hours.
    Copenhagen, Denmark

  48. We felt very comfortable in the charming Purple House. Accommodation and location are perfect for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding area. Henk and Guido are extremely helpful, very accommodating, prepare a lovely breakfast and have provided us with great information and tips regarding the city, restaurants, nightlife and so on. We were excited!
    Bielefeld, Germany

  49. At the end of our trip to South Africa we stayed for three days in Purple House. This B & B boasts a great location – many sights and destinations in Cape Town are easy and quick to reach – tastefully decorated, with a very modern bathroom and basically everything you would expect from your guest house. But what makes this B & B something special is the hosts HENK and GUIDO. Already on arrival, the two convey their guests the feeling of being welcome, they maintain a very warm atmosphere in their house.
    Always one of the two is present, always has a contact person who helps the guests and small and big wishes fulfilled, be it when ordering taxis, recommendations of restaurants and table reservations or advice on the design of the stay. The lovingly prepared breakfast, which can be taken in the green, blooming courtyard in fine weather, is a great start to the day every morning.
    We will certainly go to SA a few more times, we do not need to worry about accommodation. It was nice at Purple House, we will be back.
    Cologne, Germany

  50. “Guido and Henk have an amazing place in the center of Cape Town. We felt very welcome and the room was really nice and big. Even a bathtub was included. The breakfast contains everything you need. We could always ask for everything we needed and got great advice on what to do in the city. ”
    Frankfurt, Germany

  51. Appartamento molto bello … La nostra stanza molto spaziosa e pulita. Bagno nuovo e molto moderno. Molta cura dei dettagli
    Milano, Italy

  52. I’m a big fan of hotels that are innovative, modern and stylish. The Purple House met my taste. I spent five days in the house and felt very comfortable right from the beginning. The hosts Henk and Guido lead the bed and breakfast with a lot of passion and looked after me as a guest excellent and yet discreet! The room, bathroom and the house is beautifully designed. There is also a courtyard and a roof terrace worth every single step to enjoy a view of Table Mountain! The breakfast was always fresh and the coffee tasted excellent. The location is very central, Waterfront and Longstreet are within walking distance. I love the Purple House and hope to come back someday. Thank you again! Dominik.

  53. Leuke ontvangst zeer vriendelijke gastheren. Goede restaurant tips and other suggestions about Kaapstad. Zeer ruime kamer, goed ontbijt.
    Weert, the Netherlands

  54. Everything was great: the location, the hospitality, and the very useful ideas to do in Cape Town.
    Budapest, Hungary

  55. Maravilhosa hopedagem na casa de Guido and Henk, proprietários da Guest House. Me senti muito acolhida. Semper Preocupados com meu bem estar. Já na chegada recebi uma lista com indicações de restaurantes. Eles organizaram os passeios que desejei fazer, cuidaram dos ingressos para certos lugares, meu transfer para o aeroporto. Tudo por metade do valor que eu havia cotado antes de sair do Brasil.Semper dispensers a orientar e sugerir locais novos. Realmente uma grata surpresa in the Cape Town. Fiz dois amigos holandeses, que escolheram a cidade para viver.
    Sao Paolo, Brasil

  56. Tutto semplicemente perfetto: posizione, disponibilità gentilezza dei proprietari, struttura, colazione. La location è veramente ideal: a due passi dal Waterfront e dal centro città. Il quartiere è tranquillo e sicuro e rimane vicinissimo a locali e ristoranti per cena e dopo-cena.
    Merate, Italy

  57. At the beginning of our trip to South Africa with a one-week stay in Cape Town, we were looking for accommodation deviating from the normal, international hotel standard. In Purple House we found exactly what we were looking for. A beautifully decorated room with luxurious bathroom in a perfect location to explore Cape Town. The individual breakfast served by Guido and Henk is worth experiencing. Both are obliging but discreet hosts with helpful tips to organize the taxi for arrival and departure. Thank you for a super pleasant stay in a warm atmosphere! We hope to come back sometime.
    Aachen, Germany

  58. As a solo female traveler visiting Cape Town in the winter (when it’s dark around 6pm), it’s easy to find a B & B that’s close to the city center and within easy reach of good restaurants. In The Purple House I found both of these and more: a big comfortable room, a tasty meal, one of the most fun, and one of the most fun and caring people imaginable. Although my stay was only five nights, I left The Purple House with real sadness and would happily recommend it, if you’re traveling on your own or with company.
    Oxford, UK

  59. I wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed one night at Purple House and it was wonderful. The house is in a great location, the room is lovely and comfortable, and Guido and Henk are the most welcoming, gracious hosts. The breakfast is perfect.
    New York, USA

  60. Heel hartelijke ontvangst. Enormous gastvrijheid. Goede service bij regelen van activiteiten / reserveringen. Smaakvol in court. Ligging van Purple House is great, op loopafstand van het stadshart.
    Lelystad, the Netherlands

  61. Pros: Locatie, gastheren, ontbijt, wijk, kamer.
    Cons: As we dan toch iets moeten noemen, geen koelkast op de kamer.
    Weesp, the Netherlands

  62. Pro’s: De service en vriendelijkheid van Henk en Guido. Ze helpen u met alles.
    Cons: Dat we hier slechts 2 nachten waren

    Cons: Niets
    Zandvoort, the Netherlands

  65. “Well Done boys”
    Easy to adore your hosts. Big smiles were waiting on the curve when my taxi pulled up…a welcomed site after a 36 hour journey from the states. Great bed, great decor, simple and chic, crisp linens, yummy breakfast, lovely neighborhood, away from town center but walking distance to good food and shops. Thanks to Guido and Henk…great stay.
    Asheville, United States of America

  66. A perfect place to stay in Cape Town!
    The house is situated in a quiet street with a lot of parking space, perfectly in the middle between Waterfront and City Centre. It has a small cozy patio at the back, nicely prepared to enjoy your breakfast outside. The bedroom is lovely with a modern interior, TV, internet, comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom.
    We could not wish for a better start of our trip to South Africa. The Dutch hosts created a homecoming atmosphere and were very caring. They arranged a taxi from the airport, welcomed us with a glass SA-wine and gave all kind of handy tips about CT. The next day we started with an overwhelming breakfast.
    It took us a short walk to get into the hot areas from CT like Waterfront, Green Point, City Centre (Long street), etc . Next day we rented a car just around the corner and drove to all the beautiful small bays, villages and to the cape of good hope.
    Because of this pleasant stay we decided, after 10 days of traveling, to return to the Purple House for our last day and night in SA.
    Bussum, the Netherlands

  67. Die Lage ist in einem ruhigen aber dennoch lebendigen, sicheren Umfeld mit guten Restaurants. Das Zimmer im Purple House ist sehr geschmackvoll und hochwertig eingerichtet. Uns hat das neue moderne Bad beeindruckt sowie die grüne Oase in der wir unser tolles Frühstück genießen konnten. Perfekte Gastgeber! Present und doch dezent.
    Munich, Germany

  68. Amazingly friendly welcome.
    Beautiful, clean, spacious room.
    Tastefully decorated.
    O! so friendly and helpful in all ways, even the little things.
    I will definitely come again!!
    Hermanus, South Africa

  69. I stayed here for 3 nights on the back end of a tour from Durban. What can I say…Guido & Henk were the perfect hosts, and were extremely accommodating to my needs. They have a wealth of local knowledge and gave great recommendations from eating to recreational activities…what wonderful human beings!!! The house was clean & tidy, the breakfast was fresh and filling and the location is brilliant. As a travel agent myself for a globally recognised company, this is now the place I will be sending all of my clients to in Cape Town…that says it all!!
    Kingston, United Kingdom

  70. Onze gastheren waren zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Een echte aanrader in Kaapstad!
    Lubbeek, Belgium

  71. The friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts; the delicious breakfasts – with specialty coffee! – in the garden; the architecture and amenities of our bathroom (!); the location. The hosts even took the time to send forgotten items to me in Knysna! Absolutely a great find.
    Apple Valley, USA

  72. As soon as I had read previous reviews I knew that I wanted to book to stay with Guido and Henk for our three night stay in Cape Town. It was definitely the right decision! They made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. They booked taxis for us, gave us maps, made bookings for Table Mountain and when we walked in the door they each and every time they were there eager to find out about our day and welcome us with a refreshing drink. Their home is very conveniently placed for every aspect of a trip to Cape Town. They have paid attention to detail in their tastefully decorated home and have provided guests with everything they could need, from big fluffy towels and soft dressing gowns, to designer shower gels and shampoos. The breakfasts were plentiful with fresh fruit, yoghurt, crusty rolls, scones, ham and cheese, with a choice of eggs. They had a great sense of humour and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. If you are reading this review then all I can say is go ahead and book, as you will not be disappointed.
    Little Staughton, United Kingdom

  73. Communication with Guido and Henk was easy from the beginning despite my last minute reservation. Purple House is colorful and warm when you get to Jarvis street and climb the few steps to the door. Guido and Henk make you feel welcome immediately. The inside of the house is as lovely as the outside: the studio is spacious, cozy, with design objects and a homey feeling. Loved the blue sofa to rest after long days in the city! The bathroom is beautiful and completes the relaxing experience: great complimentary shower products. Every morning a freshly-made breakfast awaits you with great products and variety. Location cannot be beaten with great eateries and bars within walking distance and unique village atmosphere. Would stay at Purple House for any type of occasions when in Cape Town. Merci Guido and Henk!!!

La déco est raffinée, la terrasse est charmante, et rien à redire sur la propreté. Bref, la situation géographique de Purple House et l’acceuil de ses hôtes en font un lieu à découvrir absolument.

An unserem letzten morgen in Kapstadt (und Südafrika) konnten wir auf der Dachterrasse frühstücken – ein traumhafter Abschluss.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!”

  84. A fantastic welcome to Cape Town, Guido & Henk made us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. From the moment we arrived, they helped in every way. The room is spotless, stylish and comfortable and the bathroom is amazing! Guido makes a superb breakfast which we enjoyed on the patio and there is a roof terrace with a view of Table Mountain. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Purple House as a fabulous place to stay.

  85. Guido & Henk were such great and welcoming hosts from the moment I arrived until the moment I left. They knew all the best local attractions, and had prepared a helpful map and list of restaurants in advance. I couldn’t be happier with my first Airbnb-arranged accommodation.

    They live in a wonderful house with a great roof terrace upon which you can gaze at the mighty Table Mountain looming over the great city. The breakfasts they provided were probably the best I’d eaten all year (or perhaps longer). I’m not sure I have ever felt so welcomed and engaged with in a new foreign city, so my only complaint is that I’m not still there with them!

    We felt very welcome and comfortable during our stay at Purple House. The property is well located, close to a number of nice cafes and restaurants, and Henk & Guido are great hosts. Their natural style can be seen in the decor of the room and the property in general. All in all, a delightful stay.

  88. We really enjoyed our stay at the Purple House. The room was clean and spacious and had everything that we needed. The location was superb with a safe and easy walk to many of Cape Town’s attractions and lots of good restaurants and a supermarket nearby.

    Henk and Guido were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble including helping us purchase tickets to attractions online to obtain a discount and making breakfast at 5am.

    We happily recommend the Purple House to anyone visiting the beautiful Cape Town.

  89. There was much to do in cape Town – beaches, mountains, restaurants, wine tastings & more! But it was wonderful to come back to a quiet, clean, mellow, lovely space of our own to rejuvenate for all that came again the next day. Bravo on the bathroom! We loved to take a soak each night and fall fast asleep!

  90. What do you say when you have done a lot of traveling and you find the best Guesthouse in Cape town. When you met Henk and Guido (the owners) you feel guilty when leaving. These two guys are at your service at all time. Wow. Thank you for making our stay the best. You will find a very neat and well kept guesthouse. They will surprise you every morning with a stunning breakfast. Also this guesthouse has the best location in De Waterkant. You are walking distance from just about everything. From Stunning restaurants, coffee stops, the malls and the CBD. When you walk out of this B&B in the evening you will find a stunning buzz of nightlife. This is one guesthouse that will see me again and again. Will recommend The Purple House to all my friends without hesitation.

  91. Postive: Steps from every city attraction, lovely and elegant neighbourhood, friendly and professional owners, healthy and huge breakfast.
    Negative: To be honest we loved everything.

  92. After a long flight, this is the accommodation and welcome to South Africa where you are hoping for. The room is very comfortable with rainshower, bath, big bed, enough space and excellent wifi. The location is very good with walking distance to V&A Waterfront, Bokaap and the city center. The street is quiet and supermarket and restaurants are close by. The breakfast was the best we had during 3.5 weeks travel through SA and most important the owners are very friendly, helpful and interested in their visitors.

  93. Great Experience!
    Lage sehr gut, Betten sehr gut, Frühstück nach unseren Wünschen individuell zubereitet. Die Gastgeber waren außergewöhnlich freundlich und hilfsbereit – auch in schwierigen Situationen (krankheitsbedingt) – und wurden zu Freunden.
