We saw whales from our room!Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: Extremely helpful hosts. The shower is amazing. Adults only no kids.
Location: Convenient for local shopping, but not too close. Not on water front but has a view of the bay. Walking distance (a strenuous walk) to Lions head.
Our first trip to Cape Town was a six night stay at the Avanti guest house. From our room you can see the bay at sea point and on our first day we saw two right whales from our room. The room was very pleasant and clean, with a fan for the warm evenings, (no air conditioning). The shower was amazing, more powerful than a power shower with copious amounts of hot water. Our hosts, Johan and Maria were wonderful and arranged airport transfer, taxis, car hire and the shark cage dive for us. Breakfast was a treat, with a small buffet style, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, meats and cheeses and of course cooked items (a fry up). Delicious coffee from Johan. I would highly recommend The Avanti guest house.

Biking tourists in Cape townPosted Feb 18, 2015 on Hotels
The owners Maria and Johan gave us an excellent service and made us feel very welcome to Avanti guest house. We really enjoyed our stay with them. For joggers the location of the guest house is excellent as it is situated just beside the jogging/running track joining Sea point and Bantry bay, with numbers of runners passing in the late afternoons and evenings. Within walking distance to beaches and the public pool located in Sea point.

Fantastic holiday in Cape Town/Bantry BayPosted Jan 16, 2015 on Hotels
Johan and Maria were fantastic hosts. The breakfasts were excellent and Guest room #1 had a large comfortable bathroom with bathtub. French doors opened up to our own patio with table and chairs. What was extremely useful were the MyCiti bus cards to travel to all the beaches and downtown Cape Town. Were were given two cards for 8 days and put in 100 rand each to refill. (approx. $17.39 for eight days of use) Much cheaper than On-Off Buses or taxis.

Great Place, Great Hosts !Posted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: The hosts & the quiet one-way street just a few minutes walk from the main shope/bars etc.
Cons: Parking could be a problem, although it didn't bother us parking on street.
We found Avanti Guest House using the well written directions from Johan & Maria. Once there we were given a spacious room with comfy beds and lovely fluffy towels. Soaps & Lotions were also in the bathroom which you would expect from a large Hotel. Avanti is on a quiet one-way street but only a few minutes walk to the shops and the sea. We slept very well away from the traffic noise. Breakfast was very good with choices from continental to full english (or both, like we had) Our hosts were so nice and caring and introduced us to the other guests so we could share information about where to go etc. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to go back myself.

Perfect place for a Cape Town visit!Posted Dec 2, 2014
Great location. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. It was delightful to chat with them at breakfast and the food and coffee were excellent. Our room had a nice balcony with a view of the ocean. We were able to sit out in the evenings and have a glass of wine and watch the sunset. It was so easy to access everything we wanted to see from the bus stop which was very close by. We highly recommend the Avanti.

Comme chez des amisPosted Nov 23, 2014 on Hotels
Des hôtes formidables, qui vous reçoivent comme des amis. Nous avions une chambre très agréable avec balcon et vue sur la mer. Cette guest house est située dans un quartier paisible d'où l'on peut facilement rejoindre le centre ville et le quartier du waterfront en bus, en voiture et même à pied. Excellent petit déjeuner, parking, wifi, réfrigérateur dans la chambre. Nous recommandons ce lieu et remercions encore Maria et Johan pour leur accueil.
