Your Hosts

We love what we do – running African Violet Guest Suites, a couple’s getaway destination, 40 minutes drive south of Cape Town on the Cape Peninsula.

Rob has, over the years starting from virgin soil, designed, developed and built all that you see on the north facing slopes bordering the nature reserve. Recent improvements dramatically add to the experience at African Violet Guest Suites.

What has motivated us with our exciting developments is to implement what we enjoy when we go away. We love having romantic getaways in and around the beautiful Western Cape. We want to welcome locals and foreigners alike to have a fabulous stay at African Violet Guest Suites.

Some of our Guests

We recently stayed at African Violet. It is the 4th time we have had the privilege of staying there. Each time we go back it is like going home. Jennifer and Rob have thought of all the comforts of home. The beds are very comfortable and the suites well equipped.
Beautifully appointed, everything you need, gorgeous views, excellent service and owners, clean and tidy. We stayed overnight for a wedding nearby and the owners were very accommodating since we could only stay one night before heading back to Australian. We wished we could stay longer as it was such a peaceful location.

It was my third stay at African Violet; and I would definitely go back. Jennifer and Rob are great hosts. The guest house is beautiful and quiet. The area is scenic. The rooms are spacious and clean. Requests and queries are attended to quickly. I enjoyed my stay!
