Wir danken Henk und Guido für den sehr liebevollen und freundschaftlichen Umgang mit uns in dieser Woche. Die Gottesanbeterinnen im herrlichen Pflanzenbesatz regen zur Meditation an.


Der Patio bietet an heißen Tagen ein wundervolles Ambiente zum Frühstück und abends zu einem schönen Glas wunderbaren südafrikanischen Wein. Von der Dachterrasse sind abends das Kreuz des Südens und der Orion zu sehen.


Wir wollen auch das schöne Zimmer und die guten Betten erwähnen. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Wir hatten hier vier sehr schöne Tage in perfekter Lage und mit gutem und gemütlichem Frühstück im Garten.


Guido und Henk waren immer hilfsbereit und mit hilfreichen Ausflugstipps zur Stelle. Empfehlenswert!

Uiterst vriendelijke gastheren, zowel tijdens de voorbereidingen (snel en hulpvaardig emailcontact) als tijdens het verblijf. Grote, schone en verzorgde slaapkamer en badkamer. Smaakvol ingericht huis, een lust voor het oog.


Ideale ligging: winkels, restaurantjes, musea: alles op loopafstand en in veilige buurt. Aangenaam, lekker ontbijt op beschutte, plantenrijke patio.

We komen zeker weer terug, bedankt! Top!

I chose the Purple House because I don't like staying in large, impersonal hotels and I was very impressed with its charm and individuality. I am also a life-long insomniac and while staying at Purple House had resonance therapy from Sound Impulse (based in the same house – see www.soundimpulse.co.za) and by the time I left I was sleeping for 8 hours a night.


The Purple House is situated in the trendy Waterkant district, with its restaurants, bars and chic shops. It is also convenient for Long Street and the V&A Waterfront.The guest room is light, airy, tastefully designed with high ceilings and a large ensuite bathroom. Breakfast on the patio (including freshly squeezed orange juice and freshly baked croissants) is a great start to the day.


Henk and Guido are delightful hosts, who make you feel like you are staying with friends. Nothing is too much trouble. I strongly recommend the Purple House. Book it now – you won't be disappointed!

Lieber Guido, Lieber Henk, Es war uns eine Freude, in Eurem (alarmgesicherten:-)) Haus wohnen zu dürfen. Schon mit dem Eintreten haben wir uns wohl gefühlt.


Eure Gastfreundschaft ist nicht zu übertreffen. Das Haus, der Garten, die Dachterrasse sind eine Oase zum genießen und Entspannen. Wenn uns nicht die Big Five locken würden, wären wir noch länger geblieben.


Danke an Euch für einen wunderschönen Start in unserem Süd Afrika Urlaub.

Purple House on Jarvis bed & breakfast is situated in a prime location in the Waterkant precinct of Cape Town. Giving you walking access to restaurants, shopping and great nightlife. With a car you are only few minutes away from the main beaches. Staying with Henk and his partner has been delightful. They looked after us very well and made us feel at home. After a good night sleep, a yummy breakfast awaits for you on the main terrace.


There is also a second terrace on the second floor with a breathtaking view of Table Mountain, perfect for a drink before heading out. The room was clean and well furnished with two comfortable beds. It also has a great en-suite bathroom. I would highly recommend to stay in this friendly guest house.

We contacted just one day before our arrival. We were attended with extreme kindness, we needed to stay for two days and they just had availability for one, but they took care of us looking for another room for one more day 10 meters from their place. The welcome was really warm and nice (you can notice from the very beginning that our hosts are wonderful and nice people).


Our en suite room was amazing, huge and luxury decorated with all amenities you can think of (TV, WIFI etc.). Our breakfast in the terrace was magnificent, every kind of attention and detail.


This is not a regular house but a luxury place to stay. We surely recommend this place to anyone who wishes an outstanding place in Cape Town.





I stayed at Purple House in Dec 2011 for a night. It was fantastic. It is conveniently located allowing for easy walks to most tourist/business areas of the town. Purple house interiors are comfy, clean and most of all the B&B is very quiet.


The breakfast was 5 star class and that made the chief (the cat) a bit jealous. Henk and Guido are excellent hosts. I am headed back there in a few weeks; hence highly recommend the PH B&B to those who look for those qualities at affordable prices.


Bravo Henk, Guido and 'the chief', à très bientôt.
