We had a great stay here, Johan and Maria are lovely hosts.
Very comfy bed, great shower and a delicious breakfast.
Happy to recommend Avanti Guesthouse as a place to stay in Cape Town, just like staying with friends or relatives. Close to the water, not too far to the shops

Stayed: April 2014, travelled as a couple
Thank Barrie M

Dear Barrie & Charmaine,
Thank you so much for reviewing Avanti. We will long remember your actor's fascial decoration Barrie (Impressive) and your open and friendly smile Charmaine. We are glad that you are safely home and will send the promised photos now.
We wish you a good spring and a warmer summer with lots of good fortune and fun.

Fond regards from us.

Right from the onset, we were welcomed with friendliness unparalleled anywhere. Johan and Mari made our stay better than when we are at our own home, and we will from now on, always stay with them when in Cape Town. Breakfast was the best time to be there. They will introduce you to all other guests, and chat with everyone as if we are all family. Thank you, Norman and B

Dear Norman & Bee,
Wow! You have really been nice to us. Thank you so much for the nice review.
It was a pleasure having real Namibians staying for a change. We see far too few of our neighbours from Namibia, one of our own favourite destinations. Thank you for the interesting chats and the positive vibe you brought to our establishment. We always say that it is the guests that create the ambience and not us. You are a good exemple of what we mean by that! Come back soon!

What a little gem, such a lovely guest house and the owners make you feel so welcome it is like being at home. It is only small, so book early so not to be disappointed. Everything you need in the room and a lovely walk in shower. The breakfast was fantastic, the owners prepare everything from scratch, you can have fruit, ham and cheeses, toast, cakes etc before you have a cooked breakfast of what you desire. The owners could not have been more helpful anything you asked for you got, any information they answered, already booked for November.

Room Tip: Not many rooms but ask for the one in with balcony if it is available you can sit out and look at the sea and the beautiful sunsets.

Dear Martyn & Michelle,
Thank you for super review. We notice that you are senior reviewers and that is even more rewarding and gratifying to receive your positive comments.
We also found it interesting that you commented on the room and the view from the balcony. We feel very strongly about not creating expectations with misleading promises of sea views. Thanks for lifting this point out, the sign of a true senior reviewer!
We are at pain to emphasise that it is a side sea view and that it is from the balcony, and not so much from the room. Fortunately the sea is close enough for all the rooms to hear it and on a nice day smell it too.
Thank you for being such compatible guests: We clicked from the word go and had some very pleasant conversations that stimulated other guests to contribute too.
We look forward to receiving the dates of your next visit and booking "Your" room for you. Now that you have re-established your South African connection we hope to see more of you.

We stayed a week here in January 2014. It was excellent value for money and ideally situated for access to the Cape Town Waterfront and in the other direction the beaches at Clifton, Camps Bay and Hout Bay. Our room was spacious spotlessly clean and had a balcony with glimpses of the sea. Breakfasts were delicious with plenty of variety. Maria and Johan are the perfect hosts, warm and welcoming and helpful in every way, introducing all the guest to each other, we felt immediately at home and would have no hesitation In recommending Avanti Guesthouse, we are already booked for 2015!

Dear Torry and Brenda,
You are too kind, really. We appreciated your appreciation, if you don't mind me saying so in my broadest Irish accent possible. You were great fun with a sense of humour and with a genuine interest in our country. That will win you friends every where.
It was nice touch to invite us for coffee in Constantia when you returned from your trip virtually on your way to the airport and it was intersting to hear what you saw and experienced.
Your room is booked for next year and we look forward to your return. Best wishes and thanks, Johan & Maria.

Very enjoyable stay in central location- close to rapid transfer bus stop, and short drive to city centre. Great breakfast, very neat room and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend this guesthouse to my friends and family.

Dear Lizl and Pieter,
Welcome to the world of reviewers on Tripadvisor. We are absolutely delighted that your first review is Avanti and wish you many more.
Thanks for the positive review. It motivates us to give our best. We share them with the saff and they love to hear that their efforts are recognised.
We hope the rest of your time here in the South was pleasant. Maybe it will motivate you to come back soon and for longer next time.
Fond regards,Johan & Maria.
