  1. The Purple House accommodations are very conveniently situated for the lively and hip Cape Quarter area. The owners, Henk & Guido, are very attentive to any request. The bathroom over the courtyard of our unit is a place to spend time in! The restaurants & coffee shops within minutes of walking are some of the best the Cape has to offer

HERMOSA DECORACION, IMPECABLE, CALIDA Y ACOGEDORA, COMPLETA CON TODO LO NECESARIO (lavaropas con secadora, lavavajillas, cafetera, microondas, dvd, vajilla, plancha, secador de pelo, etc, realmente confortable y preparada para vivir!!!).

  4. Fantastic accommodation, central location and helpful hosts. We loved staying at the self-catering two bedroom Purple House cottage. It is ideally located in the safe De Waterkant area and within easy walking distance of restaurants, supermarket, shops, the V and A Waterfront, the Bo Kaap area and downtown. The cottage was very spacious, clean and like a second home for our family of four. The owners Henke and Guido were so welcoming, friendly and helpful, going out of their way to assist us with prebooking information and recommendations for taxi services, tourist sites and local places to eat. We highly recommend the Purple House! Room Tip: The Jarvis Street Cottage is perfect for a family or for two couples.

  5. We had a wonderful stay! What a great house on a fantastic location. The house was spacious, tastefully decorated and you feel right at home!! We were received very hospitably and we loved the place so much that we did not want to leave (it is even better than my own place).. We certainly come back. A better start of our trip, we could not have wished for.

  6. We are a family of four – 2 adults, a 13 year old and an 11 year old. We stayed at Jarvis Street Cottage for a week and absolutely LOVED it. The size was perfect, the décor beautiful and we wanted for nothing. In addition, you couldn’t hope for a more central, vibey location. Thank you so much Henk and Guido – we hope to be back one day.


  7. 19 Jarvis Street is a nicely decorated home away from home with all utilities available. Beautiful and spacious cottage in a bubbly area with shops, restaurants and bars on your doorstep. Great location, walking distance to V&A Waterfront, close to Table Mountain etc. A big thank you to Guido & Henk for their great hospitality and culinary tips. We stayed at the cottage with our family for 5 days but wished we could have stayed longer. We will surely come back!
