I was in Cape Town for three nights for a quick holiday prior to a work meeting. I booked the AfricanHome guest house online and I really cannot speak highly enough about my experience from the time I booked to the time I left (and I really did not want to leave!) Ralf and Stefan are phenomenal hosts who really...

I would highly recommend this B&B. The hosts were very hospitable and made sure that one felt comfortable. Beautifully renovated historic house. Sensational breakfast, with the possibility of eating outside on the terrace.

Our two day stay at Africa Home provided the perfect start to our tour of Cape Town and the Garden Route which we had organised to celebrate my 60th Birthday. As soon as we were greeted by Ralf and Stephan on arrival we knew that were in a special place. They immediately made us feel welcome and invited us to...

The info booklet in the room says it all: "This is NOT a self-catering guest house". Ralf & Stephan pamper their guests and take care of all aspects of your stay. They arranged for concert tickets in the botanical garden on short notice, secured private drivers (less cost than retail) for airport transfers and full-day wine & cape tours; provided...

This is a charming and beautiful place but what makes it exceptional are the hosts, Ralf and Stefan. From the moment we arrived, they treated with the utmost care and hospitality. After we got settled, Ralf provided us with a quick tour of the guest house and gave us an orientation regarding Cape Town. Since we didn't have a rental...

In short and for those with a short attention span, It's excellent....book it. I spent several hours whilst staying in Durban the week before flying into Cape town researching guesthouses in Cape Town and this was one of a number where I felt we'd be happy to stay and we were delighted with our choice.

Built in 1790 as the hunting lodge of Lord Nelson, the AfricanHome guesthouse is one of the oldest buildings in this suburb of Cape Town, situated only 2 blocks away from the Atlantic Seabord. It is a very peaceful oasis in the middle of this buzzling city, in walking distance to many restaurants and to the Waterfront, just 2 km away from Clifton Beaches and famous Long Street.
