“An oasis in Cape Town - Greenpoint”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

We were travelling in the Western Cape for a month Dec 10 - Jan 11, we stayed in 12 places and we just LOVE Antrim! A loving and personal designed guest house in a perfect location in Greenpoint. Just cross Main road and Beach road and run along the sea walk in the morning, walking distance to restaurants around the corner and Cape Quarter and Waterfront. If not walking all INTERCAB taxis knows the Antrim Villa address...
The rooms close to the pool area was perfect for our family of three children 2-5-8. They loved the pool!
Warm thanks to the staff that gave us full service every day!

We will be back soon!

A home away from home with a stylish touch to it. Clean and neat with a service that is outstanding - credit to Joy and Gabriel, thank you! Have stayed here in all three times over the last 2 years and will hopefully come back soon again.
If you don't have a car it is still possible to walk to Cape Quarters and Waterfront. Also perfect location for a jogg along the Seapoint seashore - best way to start the day in town.
Also need to compliment the breakfast that is very tasty and fresh indeed.
Honesty bar is fab - great for a sundowner by the pool.

Antrim Villa was by far the best place we stayed at in South Africa. It provided a serene haven after fun packed days! The staff were really accomodating, friendly and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend Antrim Villa to friends & family. Thanks Antrim & Joy

The Antrim Villa is a nice, cosy place for your stay in Cape Town. The staff is very helpful and friendly, trying to accomodate your needs, and the place has a homey feeling about it. Simple, clean, nice rooms and a common area for breakfast.
The pool water is cold, but it feels really refreshing on a hot, sunny day.
I had some problems connecting to the wireless network, which was known to the staff. Still I could check email using their guest computer.
The location in Green Point might not be not optimal in relation to the city centre, and the Waterfront needs a 20 minute walk. The vllia is perfect for a stop, if you have a car though.
All-in-all a very nice stay.

A well converted Victorian house in Scandinavian style with minimalist decor.Helpful friendly staff. A few things would have been welcome eg soap, tissues,shower cap but I fortunately had all these myself.
Parking spaces are really limited to 4 so not everyone with a car can park inside the security gates but there is on street parking.
The beds and bed linen were very comfortable so a good night's sleep was had.
It is easy to reach other parts of the city and peninsula with a car so a good location.
