Experience an

Hearty African

Welcome from our Staff

Our staff consists of two wonderful African ladies, Nellie and Ithai, and an extraordinary African gentleman, James, whom we have known for years and who have become an integral part of our home with their inspiring smiles, joyfulness and their appreciation and willingness to further their skills.

Nellie originates from Malawi and Ithai from Zimbabwe, both have a very interesting personal background of why they decided to leave their homes and relocate to Cape Town. They are responsible for cleaning the rooms and the outside area as well as assisting us with preparing breakfast and snacks for our guests.

But don’t take my word for it, come and experience his charm for yourself.

Nelli and Ithai will greet you with smiles when you arrive at the Guesthouse. Serving Breakfast and Cocktails by the pool while you relax.

Ideal place to stay in Cape Town

We felt very safe and welcomed at Africanhome and would definitely recommend it to others looking for a small and intimate place to stay in Cape Town.

About the

Two Owners

Being the owners of this precious Sea Point gem, we originated from Munich, Germany, where we have spent the most part of our lives. We both decided that we needed a change from our medical professions and wanted to experience something new, hence opening a guest house in Cape Town. We wanted to offer our guests a haven where they could forget the humdrum of their stressful European lives, an oasis of peace where they could reflect upon the meaning of life or just make lasting first impressions of what this country has to offer.

And our African Home offers all these possibilities – so don`t only just feel relaxed – feel at home!
