Tastefully decorated, although could be hard to find, would suggest you tell the driver York Road, but with all uber drivers they use sat nav. I was lucky to say in room 6 which has a gorgeous bath and sofa area, which makes the room huge and very comfortable. Cher is welcoming and has done a great job with that...

I arrived at midday to be met by Cher and was shown a wonderful room. The location is good for Green Point and the Waterfront with lots of restaurants close by. I had very early starts which was not an issue even though they were before the timings for meals as I was able to help myself to tea, juices,...

I was here in August, 2011, and I just have to review this place. The location is great, at Green Point, which provides for a quiet night's sleep. It's also within walking distance of the waterfront. Cher, the host is quite the character. She arranged for a tour to the Cape of Good Hope and other locations with a tour...

Cher has done a great job renovating and designing guest rooms, all with well-thought use of space. Breakfasts prepared and served by the owner or the friendly staff. We would recommend the Avatara to anyone visiting Cape Town for a night or for weeks. Located close to activities and a large choice of restaurants, and shopping, within walking distance or...

Great Guest House, beautiful bedroom & fantastic staff. It felt like a home away from home, even better.

We stayed for 14 nights at the Avatara Guesthouse and every day was perfect. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, very safe place with only a short walk into the centre, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We will definitely be staying at the Avatara again! Dan & Ella from England

From the moment I steped into Avatara I felt home. I was picked up at the airport as agreed and I was greeted by Cher with a warm cup of tea. It was late at night, but she waited until I arrived.

My recent four-night September 2014 stay at Atavara was lovely. I felt safe, comfortable, well-cared for, and fortunate. What a find. I took a chance with online recommendations, after searching through what must be hundreds of guest houses and hotels in Cape Town, while looking at a flat map to see where I might end up. As it turned out,...

“All guests seemed to respect others and were quiet even on wooden floors.”

“Quiet neighborhood; no elevator, so stairs to 2nd & 3rd floors; this is a lovingly renovated 19th century house with a few creaky floors, but great charm. Some rooms open into public space, but after breakfast the house feels very private.”

“The room I had, upstairs, with a great balcony (chaise, table and chairs), great bed, clean and comfortable bathroom. I think it is number 3 or 4, but cannot remember. I would recommend upstairs, probably quieter.”
