  1. Superbe maison très bien décorée Emplacement parfait : rue calme, de nombreux bars et restaurants dans la rue. Excellent accueil.

  2. Supercomfortabel huis op een prettige locatie in Kaapstad en op loopafstand van Waterfront, prima te doen per voet allemaal, al zijn de ubers ook geweldig makkelijk.

  3. Henk und Guido sind tolle Gastgeber gewesen. Da meine Eltern kein Englisch sprechen, hat es uns umso mehr gefreut, dass wir miteinander auf deutsch kommunizieren konnten. Sie sind sehr hilfsbereit und immer zu erreichen. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben und sicher bei ihnen gefühlt. Die Unterkunft ist super und man hat alles, was man braucht. Die Lage entsprach genau unseren Vorstellungen. Wenn Cape Town, dann Purple House. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist top. Vielen Dank für alles.

  4. There are few better locations and values in Cape Town than a stay at “the red house on the corner.” It’s a 30 second walk (at a slow pace) to the Cape Quarter, with its shops, cafes, restaurants, grocery store, liquor store and shared office space, which puts pretty much everything you need right at your doorstep — and we mean that literally! It’s a 15 minute walk to the V&A waterfront or a 5 minute Uber ride. Downtown is a 10-15 minute walk away, too. It’s a great location in the Waterkant community, which is also patrolled by security 24 hours a day, so you always feel safe. The home is “historic charm meets modern flair,” which is accurately reflected in the images in the listing. Henk and Guido are wonderful hosts, always willing to offer assistance or guidance whenever you ask. After staying at more than 25 Airbnbs over the past three years, Henk is one of then most responsive and helpful hosts we’ve had yet. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this home and highly recommend it!

  5. Bijzonder gastvrij huis Kaapstad
    Verbleven 4 dagen in The Red Cornerhouse (hoekhuis met dakterras) in een veilige buurt, op twintig minuten lopen van V&A Waterfront. Hartelijke, gezellige en ontspannen gastheren die ook de taxi met relaxte ontvangst op het vliegveld regelden. De woning is modern ingericht en van veel gemakken voorzien. Leuk binnentuintje. Restaurants, afhaal-sushi en ontbijtstekken op steenworp afstand. Grote supermarkt ook. Heel geschikt voor een eerste kennismaking met Kaapstad. Echt aanrader.

  6. stylisches Haus, liebenswerte Gastgeber, Supermarkt und Restaurants direkt in der schönen Nachbarschaft.

  7. Idéal pour découvrir Cape Town à pied
    Un accueil très sympathique de la part des propriétaires. Tout le logement est vraiment bien équipé et chaleureux.

  8. The Red Corner House is lovely! Beautiful, spacious, tastefully decorated and practical. It was perfect for our family of four!
    The location is great: next door to nice restaurants, bars and a supermarket and within walking distance from the city center, Bo-Kaap and the V&A Waterfront. It is also easy to leave town if you are driving to visit the province and you can park close by.
    Guido and Henk, just a couple of houses away, were always very helpful.We had an excellent stay – and it really felt like home!
