  1. The cottage is excellent. We have no words to describe how beautiful it is. The cottage is much, much better than it seems on the photos. Henk and Guido are so friendly and helpful at any given time!!! Perfect value for money, if back to Cape Town, we would definitely stay there again!!!


  2. I had a great experience staying in the cottage for a week in March 2014 for a work trip to Cape Town. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The location is perfect given proximity to all the necessities – supermarket, cafes, laundry, and restaurant/bars – and felt very safe as a solo female travel Guido and Henk were super accommodating, helpful, and flexible. I’d highly recommend the Noon Day Cottage and hope to be back again soon.

  4. This house is beautiful, extremely comfortable and we immediately felt at home. It is very secure in a trendy area. The location in the Waterkant area is perfect to discover Cape Town as the city historical center is at a walking distance. We have truly enjoyed listening to music at the Piano Bar around the corner. Guido and Henk have been very welcoming and helpful. They are thoughtful and caring. We have been really sad to leave this wonderful place and we hope to be back soon.

  6. We hebben een geweldige tijd gehad, in The Purple House cottage. De gastvrijheid en de hartelijkheid van de gastheren was voortreffelijk. Heerlijk rustig in een gastvrije omgeving en niet ver van het Waterfront. We hebben een geweldige week gehad. Nogmaals dank voor alles!

  7. Thank you so much, we had a wonderful stay and found the friendliness and hospitality of our hosts at the Purple House truly extraordinary. Keep it up, boys, cheers.

  8. We stayed at Noon Day Cottage for 9 days in June 2014 and were over the moon about the accommodations & lovely neighborhood! Wow, just wow! But the best part was the warm welcome and support from Henk & Guido, who not only made us immediately feel at home but provided lots of ideas for nearby restaurants (all excellent!). On top of that, Henk accompanied our friend to the doctor when she suddenly developed an eye infection, helped her get a prescription, and stayed by her side until we got back from our day hike. These two guys are GREAT hosts, the place is fabulous, and the neighbourhood wonderful. We couldn’t have been happier and would definitely recommend them.
