26 reviews for Self-catering Cottage – up to 4 persons

  1. We definitely come back and that says everything! One friendly notice only, the windows at the front bedroom could be replaced by new ones with double window panes because occasional noise from the street we considered the only disadvantage and it is unfair for the place itself.

    Thank you for your hospitality, your warmth and your valuable tips.

  2. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation in a nice neighbourhood with some good restaurants in the immediate surroundings. Also the touristic interesting Bo-Kaap and Waterfront are at walking distance. We would certainly recommend this apartment to our friends.

    Noordwijk, the Netherlands

  3. We had a wonderful visit. The property exceeded our expectations (from what we’d seen online). The cottage is breezy and has nice light, and with four levels it was easy to spread out. The kitchen was well appointed and we enjoyed eating on the patio. Jarvis Street and the neighborhood are charming and convenient, and Henk and Guido set us up nicely.

  4. A superb experience! The cottage was clean and spacious, in a wonderful area of Cape Town – walking distance to all the main sites. Guido and Henk were very helpful, suggesting some great restaurants!

  5. A great place to stay in Cape Town! De Waterkant is a really nice area with lots of bars and restaurants. The apartment is fantastic. A lot of space for 4 people. Great bathrooms, good kitchen and a nice place to sit outside. Felt like being home!!

    Utrecht, the Netherlands

  6. Do you feel like a holiday or perhaps a weekend away? Well, Purple House/Noon Day Cottage is the place to be, from the service, near attractions, convenience.

    I can spend the whole day writing but to cut the long story short. Please visit Purple House/Noon Day Cottage and you will soon be their regular client like I’m planning to do.


  7. NDC review Kim and Nicola from Cape Town/Madrid/Paris: Loved our stay. Such a nice lively area and wonderful hospitality!

  8. This house in the Waterkant district was delightful and spacious. We found it to be beautifully furnished (but not too pretty that it could not handle older children), clean and light-filled.
    The location is in a fantastic neighborhood of shops, restaurants and excellent food. Walk to everything, including the waterfront. Guido was fun, charming and a total pleasure to be around. He could not have been more helpful with the house. Perfect

  9. Very lovely accommodation with everything needed, shops to buy groceries nearby, nice quarter to go out, close to Waterfront which is within walking distance.
    Henk and Guido: very nice, warm and pleasant hosts who give you the feeling of being home. Was my second time (first stay was at the B&B) and just loved it.

    Wadersloh, Germany

  10. Noon Day Cottage is a lovely mix of modern comfort and old world charm. It is located in a very central area with shops, restaurants, cafes and clubs, but the area retains a charming historic feel.
    From the cottage you can readily walk into the city, the gardens or the Waterfront. If you are a lover of eating out and clubbing this is a great location.
    Henk and Guido are the most perfect hosts you would wish for.

  11. We had a very great time @ Purple House! The cottage was very nice and comfortable. The guys from Purple House were very friendly and helpful.
    They gave us a lot of information and made us feel very welcome! We will surely be back @ the Purple House next time we visit Cape Town!

  12. It’s a beautiful place to stay for a visit in Cape Town. Sightseeing you can do walking. Henk and Guido are very helpful and friendly guys. We enjoyed the days we stayed here in the cottage.

  15. Henk and Guido were perfect hosts. Guido, you far exceeded what could be expected when I needed help – thank you. The cottage is very comfortable and well-appointed and the area is very convenient.

    Richmond, U.K

  16. Wonderful space, hosts who helped us by answering our endless questions with grace and patience. Close to many good restaurants, a grocery store, an upscale mall, the Waterfront. We had a real sense of life in Cape Town. Thanks so much!

  17. Wonderful experience staying at Noon Day. The House has a lovely, comfortable feel and beautiful décor. The area is very vibrant with lots of coffee shops, restaurants + shops. The Spar is also fantastic for groceries etc. Feels like home! Main bedroom is gorgeous

  18. Guido und Henk haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen, nachdem sie uns schon vor der Ankunft per Mail mit nützlichen Informationen versorgt hatten. Die Wohnung war sehr gemütlich und bestens ausgestattet. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohlgefühlt. Könnten wir 6 Sterne vergeben, würden wir dies tun. Kapstadt bleibt für uns immer mit dem Noon Day Cottage verbunden.

    Stuttgart, Germany

  19. We felt so much at home from the moment Henk and Guido opened the door of 19 Jarvis for us. The cottage is very cosy and you have just everything you need in it. And it is so handy to have Henk and Guido next door!

    Thanks Henk and Guido for your kindness and total availability to help!

  20. Centrally situated, beautiful cottage. We managed to attend meetings during the day and explored the scenery during late afternoons and early evenings. Shops and restaurants are situated close by.

    Thank you for a great stay!
    Tshwane, ZA

  21. Beautiful place, great location! Henk and Guido are wonderful hosts, very flexible. Gorgeous master bathroom, If we had to make any suggestion for improvements, it would be that it got very cold at night – space heaters or hot water bottles would have been much appreciated.
    (NB: in the meantime we got a space heater for the second bedroom, the first one already had an electric heater, and we created a facility for guests to light the fireplace in the lounge if they wish to do so).

    We would absolutely recommend this location to anyone, or any other property run by Henk and Guido! Thank you for a wonderful time!

    Atlanta, USA

  22. Wonderful experience staying at Noon Day. The House has a lovely, comfortable feel and beautiful décor. The area is very vibrant with lots of coffee shops, restaurants + shops. The Spar is also fantastic for groceries etc. Feels like home! Main bedroom is gorgeous!

    Durban and Cape Town

  23. The stay was lovely, not only is the guesthouse wonderful, well furnished (stylish), clean and centrally located within the city and very spacious, the experience has been an absolute bliss.

    Everything you need is there, the staff is helpful and the area has all the lovely views of the Mother City. Our stay was one that we will never forget. We can’t imagine staying anywhere else but there when we come to the mother city again. Thank you for the friendly and warm hospitality, we really appreciated it. Keep up the great job and thank you, thank you, thank you for an awesome experience J.


  24. Henk + Guido were very welcoming & informative. The house was even better than the photos, which do not do it justice! Location is super to access all parts of Cape Town. Four of us were staying & there was ample space. All amenities needed were provided. We cannot recommend Noon Day Cottage enough. Thanks for a great stay. Here to be back.


  25. Geweldig sfeervol huis in Victoriaanse stijl, van alle comfort voorzien. Voelde als thuiskomen. Gunstig gelegen in een mooie wijk. Henk en Guido zijn fantastische gastheren. We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in Noon Day Cottage.

    Uden & Veghel, the Netherlands

  26. In our opinion, staying in the De Waterkant district is one of the best ways to experience Cape Town, with its village-like intimacy and hip, upmarket appeal. So it was a real joy to find the Noon Day Cottage, a charming and utterly comfortable two-bedroom home just across the street from the Cape Quarter retail complex.

    The house was thoughtfully and handsomely appointed throughout, with cottage-y furnishings and every possible guest amenity. Bathrooms are large and the full kitchen ideal for a quick breakfast or occasional meals.

    Henk and Guido were both helpful hosts and attended to our every request. In short, we had a wonderful time and recommend it to anyone who wants to explore and enjoy this wonderful little corner of Cape Town.

    The one caveat is that, while it’s a perfect place to hole up for a quiet getaway, late night revelers who frequent the area on weekends might be annoying to light sleepers in the front bedroom. No such problem with the back bedroom, which has its own small, private courtyard terrace. Very peaceful and quiet.)
