Thank you for a wonderful stay! We are so glad that we picked the Purple House for our time in Cape Town. It was perfect! The location is great and we appreciate all of your help & hospitality.

Purple house felt like home away from home, a quiet retreat with a lovely view of the beautiful Table Mountain from the balcony where you can sip your coffee or tea. A hidden gem, very accessible to the center of Cape Town.


Guido & Henk are the most gracious and accommodating hosts, always considerate be it to book tickets, find a place to visit, recommend local events or serve breakfast.


The room is bright, spacious, airy and very clean with good comfortable beds. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly. Thank you for a great stay Henk & Guido!

The location was so ideal for getting to all the places I needed to, both touristy and not. Even my South African friends said I could not have picked a better location!


The room was comfortable and very tastefully decorated (glad not to have B&B kitsch all around!). The only drawback at all, which I’ve seen at all places I’ve stayed in SA, is it was a little chilly at night.


I actually like that for sleeping, but just something to note for other guests perhaps. The breakfasts were really excellent, with great fruit and cheese and pastries. Thanks again, I had a fantastic stay!

Lovely little nook in a central spot. Both hosts are friendly and interesting and the minute you manage to get into your snug bed, you can simply fall asleep. Great spot!
