Arriving late from the airport we still received a friendly welcome from Ralf and Stefan into their lovely African home. The house is very comfortable and has a beautiful pool. The excellent breakfast was thoughtfully prepared with and included many homemade foods. Service was efficient and friendly too. We had a car but we also took a short walk in...

We enjoyed Stalingrad there for 3 days, a very warm welcoming, simple but nice room. Everything is modern and lovely, swimming pool is stunning and breakfast excellent, service is perfect, staff very friendly. Very convenient place in town with a car and we had good dinner on the main road very close (200m). Too bad they dońt organise dîners sometime..;)

This is a guesthouse of my dreams. Everything is professionally done here. I Tasted the well prepared Cape Town cuisine. Me and my wife really enjoyed ourselves. I felt like a millionaire sitting by the swimming pool!

We stayed her for a night after a hectic visit to a game reserve and elephant back safari near Port Elizabeth and many flights. We were three generations - Granny, Mother and two daughters in their 20s - and were all weary when we arrived. Ralf and Stefan were so welcoming and helpful. Even though they had warned we wouldn't...

We stayed at African Guest House from 1 through 4 December 2013 (i.e. three nights). Stephan & Ralf were the perfect hosts, not only being attentive and very helpful during our stay (restaurant recommendations etc.), but also by providing information before our arrival (which was extremely helpful in the planning of our holidays). The information we got (and requested) was...

Since it was such a personable experience, best to start off with thanks to Ralf and Stefan for a fantastic stay. We really enjoyed our time this guest house which felt like staying with friends and shame it was only for one night. The guesthouse is a fantastic property which is a converted historic home with very modern amenities. This...

The AfricanHome was the final of our South African tour, the perfect location for exploring Capetown and surroundings. The rooms have a cool unique style and, though the AfricanHome is in the centre of Seapoint its a very quiet place which allows also some time to relax. The german owners Ralf and Stefan helped a lot planning our stay and...

Combine German Engineering, a passion for perfection, and Cape Town style—and you have African Home. Located on a hill, in quiet residential neighborhood in SeaPoint. We hike a lot, so for us it’s an easy walk to: a variety of restaurants; cafes; small superette-type shops; the bus-stop for the invaluable hop-on/hop-off CitySightseeing Cape Town Tour Bus; and the paved walking/jogging...

Dear Lisa and Mike- it was a pleasure having you as our guests here and we appreciate your perception of us trying to be as "perfect" as we can with our passion to spoil our guests and a slight idea of what German Engineering is able to do. Would love to do that any time again for you - and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1790 as the hunting lodge of Lord Nelson, the AfricanHome guesthouse is one of the oldest buildings in this suburb of Cape Town, situated only 2 blocks away from the Atlantic Seabord. It is a very peaceful oasis in the middle of this buzzling city, in walking distance to many restaurants and to the Waterfront, just 2 km away from Clifton Beaches and famous Long Street. New German owners who offer a fabulous breakfast buffet. Enjoy a relaxing day at the huge sparkling salt water pool being spoilt from our service. ... more   less
