African Violet Guest Suites

African Violet Guest Suites offers 6 luxury self catering apartments built high on the north facing slopes of the Table Mountain Range overlooking the distant Atlantic Ocean and the Noordhoek valley.

African Violet is a holiday destination where couples or groups of up to fourteen can spend long relaxing days in the sun.

Our luxury villas are conveniently situated close to Fish Hoek, Kommetjie, Simon’s Town and Noordhoek on the South Peninsula.

Every suite has been individually styled. Each of the six luxury self-catering unique apartments has a private entrance and outdoor sitting area with uninterrupted views of the magnificent Atlantic coastline and surrounding mountains. All structures were built by Rob, and have been individually decorated with contemporary African pieces and original art by local artist Gavin Smith.

Each apartment has hotel standard beds, cotton percale linen, fully-equipped kitchens or kitchenettes (studios), air-conditioning or fans, DSTV, free wireless internet, safe, fireplace or heating, and secure off-street parking.

The honeymoon Terrace Suite has a private plunge pool, fire place and Jacuzzi bath.

The Cabana, communal rock pool, sun deck and sun beds are all prepared for the delight and use of African Violet guests – from sun rise to sun set you can soak in the warm South African sun. Weber barbecues can be set up at your apartment in the private outdoor area, or down at the pool.

African Violet Guest Suites is an ideal base from which to explore the glories of the Western Cape. African Violet is close to the pristine coastlines of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans – ten minutes drive from any beach – Kommetjie, Noordhoek, Fish Hoek, Glen Cairn and Simon’s Town. Great choice of places to visit – Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, Cape Point, Table Mountain, V&A Waterfront, Clovelly Golf Club, renowned wine routes, farm villages and fresh-produce markets, enchanting shops in quaint Kalk Bay, top restaurants, bustling working harbours etc.

We are close to Longbeach Mall, where your daily needs can be met – grocery store, bank, clothes shops, pharmacy and mobile phone outlets.

Conveniently located only a short drive from Cape Town International Airport, this tranquil getaway at African Violet Guest Suites, is off the beaten track where luxury accommodation is affordable.

In the event of a medical emergency we are supported by Cape Medical Response (CMR) whose offices are less than 5 kilometres from us. CMR are equipped to deal with any medical emergency that may arise. The CMR paramedics and vehicles are centrally situated in our specific area to ensure that reaction times are kept as rapid as possible and that members gain considerable comfort from the fact that emergency medical assistance will – quite literally – never be far away.

African Violet is cut into the side of the mountain and offers uninterrupted views. Two of the apartments, the Courtyard Suite and Garden Studio, when combined, Garden Suite, have rustic stone steps down to their level which could be a challenge to someone that has difficulty walking.

Your Hosts

We love what we do. What a privilege it is to welcome and meet people from all over the world. The Noordhoek Valley has been our home for the last 21 years and we have become keen advocates for Cape Peninsula living.

Admin does not come naturally to Jennifer, but she manages, and is improving. She gives apartments final checks before visitors arrive, and loves to warmly welcome new arrivals and show them to their ‘home’ for the duration of their stay.

Rob designed and built African Violet and now does the handyman work and maintaining of the sparkling pools.

We are a good team.

Our Hotel’s 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!
