    Enjoyable stay”

    We loved staying at an African Villa - a real home from home, with very welcoming hosts, easy walk to nice restaurants and close enough to walk to the city (V&A is more of an Uber trip unless you want to earn a lot of steps alongside a busy road). Cindy, Keith and everyone there could not have been more helpful and we loved the little touches like the cake, port and sherry.

    Unbelievably Exceeds Expectations.Location,Service,Rooms are 5star standard with personalized servic”

    we always opt for 5star hotels but due to the fact that this was a leisure trip and a side trip from our Kruger Safari where we definitely went all out,i chose African Villa due to price at first.i did not expect much given the price point.We were in shock that the place is comparable to 5star boutique hotels we have stayed at in Europe and has great sincere service and recommendation.i highly recommend this place.Referring to this as a "guest house" has a connotation that its average,but the facilities and decoration and cleanliness are just boutique luxury standard

    I felt right at home at the African Villa! Kaylah and Cindy were so warm and accommodating and helped me arrange my airport transfers and tours. The breakfast spread was healthy and hearty and the staff were friendly! Thank you for making my brief visit such a big hit, despite the cold misty weather. Hope to return to Cape Town and to the African Villa sometime soon!

    Staff was wonderful, Breakfasts were fabulous, Property was charming

    We had never stayed in a "guest house" and were not sure what to expect. We found an African Villa to be an outstanding property. We spoke with another couple who was staying there at the time we were and they had stayed at another property nearby and while it looked much more opulent on the outside they said it did not compare to An African Villa.

    Friendly staff, very clean, nice decor and good location

    We had a wonderful stay in Cape Town and would stay at the African Villa again if we return. The owners were extremely helpful in planning our excursions each day. At night they would recommend great restaurants either near the villa or out on our daily adventures. The room was well appointed and everything has been thought of down to last detail. We enjoyed breakfast in the morning and talked with other coulpes from around the world. I would highly recommend the African Villa if you travel to Cape Town!

    It was a beautiful place but was very secluded. The hotel was in the middle of nowhere even though we were led to believe that it was right in the middle of everything. We were also warned not to go anywhere because it is very unsafe.

    Clean and modern design, very friendly and attentive owners and comfortable bed

    We had a very pleasant and comfortable stay at An African Villa. It's located in a neighbourhood less than 10 minutes walk to Long Street. There are also many lovely local restaurants nearby. It can be a little quiet and dark to walk back at night, so we either go back not too late in the evening or take a cab if it's late. The owners or operators of the hotel were very friendly. They were very helpful in giving us directions and helped us make some bookings for tours. We would definitely want to come back.
