Read up on comments from guests who have stayed at the Purple House on Jarvis


Reykjavik, Iceland

The Purple House is like a 5 star hotel - but much better because of the personal service and friendly atmosphere. For the last five years I have been travelling a lot, mainly in Africa and South America, and I suppose on average I have stayed in a hotel two months (60 nights) every year.


The Purple House is certainly one of the best places where I have stayed and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the most lively, secure and central part of Cape Town.

The Purple House on Jarvis the place to be. I stayed there for four days and from day one Guido made me feel at HOME. The room and bathroom was cosy and stylish in other words PERFECT! Breakfast was delicious with the most beautiful and relaxing music playing in the background. Each day that I spent in Cape Town I could not wait to get "HOME” after a hard day of work.


The atmosphere when you walk through that door is unbelievable. Guido I will always remember the endless and interesting conversations we had over a glass of wine. I want to thank you guys for a unforgettable stay @ Purple House on Jarvis!!! I wish you all the best.

A very warm and inviting BnB to stay. Great location and very helpful owners, where nothing is too much trouble.


Highly recommended for an enjoyable trip to Cape Town

If you stay in purple house B&B you are welcomed by Henk & Guido who are very relaxed, dedicated hosts in a beautiful, tall modern house with a friendly atmosphere.


There is a detailed pleasant service with fresh organic breakfast & good quality espresso coffee served with a beautiful view from the terrace on the roof.


The room is luxurious with a comfortable king size bed, a marble bathroom with bath, bathrobes & great towels.


With satellite tv and if that's not enough there is a huge collection dvd's beside it.Thanx to the Elanra air ionizer we had a restful sleep. So definitely something to try out!! Even the recommendations of the neighbourhood, for restaurants, sight seeing & places/things to do were excellent!!


We are fans ;) This is definitely a Yes!!! Beside their professional quality they themselves are so sympathetic, that you could only wish them the best. Jaji & Bastian - April 2011

Together with two others I got stranded for the flight to Amsterdam. Luckily Henk and Guido had room available in their lovely purple house. It was great to have a nice cold beer when we arrived, after such a disappointment at the airport.

The room is great and the bath room looks perfect! Henk and Guido took great care of us and I’ll definitely stay with them again. Keep it up guys!

Recommended restaurant: The Opal Lounge.
