Stuttgart, Germany

We were cordially welcomed by Henk and Guido. We felt very comfortable from the beginning. Henk and Guido are very helpful and observant. The room is spacious and tidy.


Restaurant recommended: City Grill, V&A Waterfront (for African game specialties)





Chicago, United States

Very comfortable room. Very private. Close to Waterfront, Long Street. Easy access to all major tourist attractions yet not in the middle of everything. Giving Purple House the best of both worlds. Private, accessible, with a true home experience.


Restaurant recommended: Carne






A very personalised, friendly and welcoming stay in Cape Town. Thanks for making these few days as comfortable and pleasant as they could be.

I didn’t know what to expect….but it proved to be better. It is like a 5 star hotel with one room and one guest. Breakfast when and how you want it. Frontdesk ready to help you with taxi, travel and good advice.


Good location, nice room….what more do you want. But above all, Henk and Guido make you feel at home!


Restaurant recommended: Ragù Italian Campari Lounge, the music the service and the food are great.






Purple House B&B is the most affordable place to stay. You get value for money without compromising for quality. The hosts are the friendliest you will get.

Guido and Henk are perfect hosts! Very friendly and welcoming, we immediately felt at home. Thanks to their precious information we had a wonderful stay in Cape Town. And, last but not least, as Italians we’ll never forget Guido’s perfect Espresso coffee. The best in Town! Hope to come back again.
