  1. Namratha and Radhika
    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
