This review is long overdue as my partner and I visited African Violet in February already but better late than never right?! All I can say is, what a treat! Our stay was everything we imagined and more. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was fresh, clean and crisp, with breathtaking views and that made our stay that much...

The appartment was clean and nice. We loved the outside area and the location that was near to beatiful places. Very helping and nice people that will assist you. We travelled with a 2 year old and it was easy to stay at African Violet. Very good internet in comparison to other places we have been to.

I booked at African violet for the weekend to celebrate my mother's birthday and what a perfect choice it was for someone elderly and away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The place is perfectly situated if we wanted to go to V&A waterfront or Cape of Good hope. We stayed at the courtyard suite, which is rustic...

Well situated suites with many attractions nearby. We stayed 2 nights in the Courtyard suite during winter and thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace! It also had its own "backyard" patio and a deck with a fantastic view. The suite with its kitchen had everything we needed.

We stayed in the most expensive room, which is still very affordable and excellent value at about 100$ per night, per room. The place is great, the hosts are nice and their dog is over friendly. While there, do yourself a favour and go to Farm Village, a small country mall hosting one of the best restaurants I ever been,...

We spend 3 peaceful and relaxing nights in terrace suite, and found it to be extremely well equipped, private, clean and neat. Well kept garden and grounds. Stunning view from patio over Noordhoek to the ocean and mountains. Breakfast was a very good and adequate variety served on the patio next to the private pool. The owner is very kind,...

My little dog and I felt welcome the moment we arrived, although rather late on a Sunday evening, at African Violet. Jennifer and Rob were truly kind and accommodating to him.
