CAPE TOWN: African Villa or Boutique Manolo?? Need friendly guesthouse

Jump to last reply

Has anyone stayed in An African Villa or Boutique Manolo, both in the Cape Bowl area of Cape Town?

I'm looking for a friendly owner-run guesthouse where the owners take the time to chat with guests and give advice each day. Looking for a friendly, comfty place to get a quiet night's rest, in a good location for doing day-trips in our car, using Cape Town as a base. A great breakfast is a nice bonus.

I had also considered staying in the southern suburbs, as we also want to see the Cape Peninsula, but then we would be further from Cape Town sites and restaurants. We will have a car.

Thanks for any comments!
