Wonderful hosts who welcome you to their beautiful home. Everything possible is done to ensure you enjoy your stay. The breakfast is perfect and is enough to last the day. Spotless peaceful and comfortable. A place I will be happy to return to.

Absolutely Brilliant hosts that made us feel like royals. Best possible place we could have had the ceremony overlooking the most beautiful parts of Cape Town. Thanks to the hospitable service everything went as smooth as could be.


We are eternally grateful to Guido Henk for making the most important days of our lives nothing but pure pleasure.

We will always return to the Purple House with delight. Thank you guys, you are the best.

Wir haben uns bei Euch sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt, und ich vermisse Kapstadt, die Sonne, De Waterkant, das leckere Frühstück und unsere Gespräche.

Liebe Grüsse Sylvia - March 2011


Guido und Henk sind sehr nette und liebenswürdige First-Class-Gastgeber, die uns in Ihrem Purple House herzlich aufgenommen haben.


Interessante Gespräche bei einem Glas Wein oder Tipps und Hilfe (Taxibestellung, Restaurantempfehlung, Pizzaservice, Reservierung von Eintrittskarten , ...), Guido und Henk sind immer für Ihre Gäste da.Das Purple House liegt wunderschön inmitten des Waterkant-Viertels mit vielen Cafés, Bars und dem Cape Quarter (Supermarkt, ATM, etc.) in Laufweite.

Das lilafarbene Häuschen ist sehr gemütlich und schön eingerichtet mit Innenhof fürs Frühstück und Dachterrasse mit Aussicht auf den Tafelberg. Unser Zimmer und Bad: sehr sauber, sehr schön, sehr geräumig (auch für längere Aufenthalte gut geeignet). Das Frühstück: lecker! Frische Brötchen und Croissants, Käse, Marmelade, Frühstücksei / Spiegelei / Rührei nach Wunsch, Joghurt mit frischen Früchten, Kaffee oder Tee, O-Saft, ... So beginnt ein perfekter Urlaubstag!


Sehr wichtig: Die Frühstückszeit darf sich der Gast aussuchen. Ob 09:00 Uhr oder 13:00 Uhr, alles ist möglich!Lieber Guido und Henk, wir hatten eine tolle Zeit, der Abschied von Euch fällt sehr schwer, doch der nächste Aufenthalt ist schon gebucht! Sylvia & Chucker - January 2011

Purple House is an oasis of calm in our favorite part of Cape Town, De Waterkant.


Ever smiling and helpful, Henk and Guido took great care to ensure our stay was as special as we anticipated it would be. I never have to look for accommodation in Cape Town again!

Thanks for the stay at Purple House. The house is wonderful, right from the outside, and both of you and also your cats, made it a warm, friendly and special place during our stay in Cape Town. The roof terrace is amazing! Thank you very much for your hospitality!

Would you recommend Purple House to others? Yes

How would you rate Purple House on a scale from 1 to 10? 10! How would you rate breakfast on a scale from 1 to 10? 10 - Best coffee and best cheese in South Africa + fresh strawberries in German winter!

During my first visit to Cape Town I was happy to stay in the Purple House, a beautiful place in the centre of the city.


The room is stylish and the bed is excellent. The hosts are always very kind and relaxed. I enjoyed the breakfast (and especially the espressos!) on the roof terrace from where you have spectacular views of the Table Mountain. Henk and Guido, thank you very much!
