Thank you all at Antrim for an excellent experience. Everyone was friendly and very helpful. As I was in the Mother City for work purposes a comfortable bed came in handy. Next trip I will not be solo

We stayed for several days in May and had the house to ourselves. It is beautifully decorated in an African-Scandinavian style. There is a lovely common area with drinks and snacks. Our room was small but comfortable. The best part about our stay, though, was the fabulous breakfast spread prepared by Maureen. Unfortunately, we did have a few complaints. One...

Travelling solo to Cape town was a bit daunting, but the staff and the welcoming that I received from the Antrim Villa team made it an absolute pleasure. The staff was friendly and helpful and I felt very much at home. I would definitely go back and next time I will take my family as well.

I went to Antrim Villa a couple of years ago and that was great but when I visited it in April it was not as good. The service was not as good and the lady who runs it now is rude and not very helpful. There are other guest houses in Cape Town that are better, such as Cheviot Place!

The Antrim made an all round positive impression. The location (Green Point) is convenient, not in the bustling centre but not in the touristic ghetto either. It is within walking distance to the V&A waterfront and the centre (15 / 20min), but if you feel unsafe (e.g. at night) it's only a short taxi ride away (from the waterfront less...

The serene garden with sun beds, citrus trees holds a large blue saltwater pool.The house is located in Green Point, a 5 minute walk to the beach promenade and a 15 minute walk to the new stadium. The Villa has two types of rooms; standard rooms and luxury rooms. Each room has en-suite bathrooms, safes, fans and heaters.
