Loved this place. I stayed in the loft apartment. It was beautiful, the views were amazing: the beach and the mountains. Really breathtaking. The loft was really nice and cozy. Jenni was the nicest host, was available when I needed and took care of any needs really quickly. The place is a bit out from Cape Town city center, but...

Really enjoyed our short stay at African Violet. Jenni was wonderful - even before arriving Jenni checked, made sure we were all set for our arrival. The advice provided by Jenni regarding places to eat and things to see was appreciated.

My husband and I stayed in the Terrace suite in January for 2 nights after our wedding. What a treat! It has a patio with a private pool and an amazing view out towards Noordehoek and the sea. It's completely private and you aren't overlooked. You can watch the sun set over the sea in the evening and during the...

Jenni and Rob are very welcoming. I have stayed in most of their rooms and they are all lovely. Capri (where African Violet is situated) is approx 20 mins drive from the centre of Cape Town but the road leading into and out of Capri (Kommejkie Road) can be deadly if you hit the morning or evening work traffic.

Thank you for the review. You are right about the traffic - we are hoping the roads that are under construction will ease the congestion. Next time you come there may be an additional apartment from which to choose! All the best.

My husband and I spent a week at the African Violet. The rooms, kitchen, bathroom, living etc. were very well appointed and extremely comfortable. Beautiful situation with views over Noordhoek and the mountains. The owner could not have been more helpful, dropping off laundry etc. When we return to Cape Town, we'll be staying here again.
