5 stars for Avatara
My family of three had a great stay at Avatara. Our bed was large and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and filling, and all staff were kind and great with our toddler. The airport transfer Avatara arranged for us was easy and the driver was so wonderful. Additionally, communication with the owner before our stay was prompt, kind, and clear. This was our first trip to Cape Town and the Green Point neighborhood is safe with plenty to do and great places to eat. We recommend Avatara 100%!

Wonderful place to stay
I stayed at Avatara my last night in Africa. I felt lucky to find Avatara. Cher, the hostess, is delightful. After I booked, she sent an introductory email with information about the place and to make sure I had everything I needed. She followed up closer to the stay. When I arrived we had a great conversation over tea. The place is beautifully decorated. Just down the street are several restaurants and a grocery store. You can walk to the waterfront if you want more action and choices. There's a big park nearby, where you can go for a run or walk to the coast. The stadium built for the world cup is in the park. The breakfast was quite good.

Lovely B&B
The boss and her helpers are very polite and welcoming. They would ask how we are and provide a nice range of breakfast staples every day: bread, cereal, a range of cheese and brie, milk and orange juice, butter & jams. Omelettes, Tea/Coffee are made fresh upon request. I love the interior, although it was an old place, they have refurbished & repainted it to be very well-kept, neat and decorated nicely. We'd work at our breakfast table because it's so bright and cheery in white & teal. They also recommended us to bring our kids and stay over at another room which can accommodate all of us. Located near Main Road & Green Point, where F&Bs, pharmacy, laundry shops are and Woolsworth is a 10-min walk away. Easy to get around. An easy 20-min walk to the V & A Waterfront as well. There are also trips which you can arrange for via them, we booked a day's trip and the driver picked us up at the doorstep.

Avatara is amazing
After a beautiful room was presented to me there was a hiccup with the shower which was out with the owners control however by means of rectification I was offered more than ample compensation in the form of an extra night. Godwin arranged my laundry, taxi for early morning start and coffee to my to my room. I was just finishing 3 weeks of bush camping and about to start another so luxury was the key for me and I got that and some. I cannot recommend this place enough. Local to the waterfront and grand Africa beach cafe was recommended to me and what a beautiful place it was. I will definitely be returning.
