I knew Purple House was going to prove to be exceptional. I booked because of the good reviews I’d read. Henk was very efficient in replying promptly to all my queries prior to my arrival and was interested in my plans. My expectations have been surpassed. Guido has gone out of his way to provide great service, cheerfully and enthusiastically + nothing was ever too much trouble. The room was very spacious and clean and had everything we needed (table and chairs, couch, TV + ample cupboard space). The bed was comfortable + the new bathroom to die for. Thank you for making our stay in Cape Town so enjoyable.

We absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place and our gracious host. I wish I could just move in and stay here forever. The room was lovely, the shower was amazing, breakfast was delicious. Could not have asked for more and when we find a way back to Cape Town we hope we are blessed enough to stay here again! Thanks for spoiling us J and for everything.

Wonderful couple of days at the Purple House. Guido and Henk are charming hosts, the property is well situated and the decor of the room fabulous.
Nice local restaurants and bars - a welcoming experience all round. I can't recommend highly enough.

It is my first voyage to Cape Town. I was very glad to live in this house with the great hospitality of Henk & Guido. GREAT, just GREAT! MERCI! J’ai été heureuse de découvrir Cape Town en vivant dans la Maison de Henk & Guido, qui m’ont accueillie en amie. Hospitalité, discrétion, sourire, bons conseils, excellent petit-déjeuner, très belle chambre dans un quartier original et vivant même le soir. MERCI.

Purple House is an excellent guesthouse in the centre of Cape Town. You went out of your way to make our holiday even more amazing than it already was. The extra surprise of a birthday cake made the experience of staying here the best of experiences in South Africa. Thanks for having us to stay in your wonderful home away from home.

Kleines, feines und sehr familiär und freundschaftlich geführtes B&B in zentraler Lage. Die beiden Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich, sehr fürsorglich und stehen einem jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Besonders zu empfehlen, das sensationelle Müsli mit Joghurt und Früchten!
