We couldn't stay where we usually stay in Hout Bay so Villa Afrique came up on Trip Advisor. The accommodation is lovely and the owner is very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfasts, small pool and a well stocked honesty bar. You can't't really go wrong with this place.

I saw the beautiful photos and read the reviews in the internet and thought we would stay in a lovely place, but it was such a bad experience we didn't even check in. The photos didn't show that opposite the pool is a fish factory and when you sit on the terrace you here the noise and the smell. The location of Villa Afrique is one of the worst. We decided not to stay and despite offering half of the amount, the owner charged us the amount of four nights. However we are glad we didn't stay and luckily found a fantastic place in Camps Bay.

Response from VillaAfrique, General Manager at Villa Afrique
Responded 09 Apr 2012
Reinhart, Anke, Julien and Henry Schreuder arrived at Villa Afrique on Tuesday 3 April 2012 at about 10:00 (check-in time 13:00). Everything was in place for their arrival. It was a beautiful windless sunshine day. When they got out of their car they did not bring any luggage with them, Mrs Schreuder was leading with the children, followed later by Mr Schreuder. They were greeted in the normal friendly way and their rooms were shown to them. From the outset Mrs Schreuder was rude and offensive and stated that they were under the impression that Villa Afrique was much closer to Cape Town. She went outside to the front of the Villa and started complaining about the factories and the noise. The noise she refers to is low level traffic noise from a road 6 meters below the patio level, which is also protected by a boundary wall 1.5 meters high. The factories she refers to is the famous “Mariners Warf Grill”, a live crayfish packaging plant and a fresh fish freezing and packaging plant, only the roofs are visible and none of these generate any noise or smells. The fishmeal factory is a kilometre away out of site and depending on whether the factory is working or not, and the wind direction, there is some times a fish smell. There was no smell from the factory on the day they arrived. It was clear that their problem was not the factories, noise or smell, it was the fact that they were not in Cape Town. On entering Villa Afrique they had no intention of staying. All the available maps clearly show the location of Hout Bay relative to Cape Town and the Villa Afrique website confirms this by stating that it is 15 kilometres from Cape Town Centre. Mrs Schreuder stated that whenever they have a problem with accommodation they would leave and only pay 50%. It thus seams that this is regular behaviour for the Schreuder’s. If they were unhappy it is fair for them to leave, it is also fair for Villa Afrique to apply the Agoda booking policy. The choice was theirs. We are not prepared to make any refunds. The comments, regarding Villa Afrique, on the Agoda and other booking websites speak for themselves. Surely “the proof of the pudding is in the eating”. Yours Faithfully Tom Thomson

Close to the harbour with its seafood restaurants. Great views of the bay. Excellent breakfast with great attention to service and detail. Easy drives to Cape Town, the Cape and East Coast. Would happily stay there again!

Wow! We have just spent a week in Hout Bay at the gorgeous Villa Afrique and nothing could have been better. Alma and Dion are amazing hosts. The attention to detail and genuine passion for running a superb B&B is awe-inspiring. As restaurant owners we know just how much effort is put into every aspect of the service level. And it goes beyond this and more. Every smallest requirement is either thought of already or catered for without any fuss or hassle. We have since been staying at various B&Bs along the Garden Route which have all been lovely in their own way, but nothing will top our stay at Villa Afrique. After a week we felt like we were leaving friends, rather than just hosts and this demonstrates just how special Alma, Dion and Villa Afrique is. We would never stay anywhere else if we return to Cape Town. Shaun & Claire

We stayed at Villa Afrique in September. Alma was such a wonderful hostess - right from making the booking to the end of our stay, and she really made us feel comfortable.She also gave us some advice about places to see and which routes to take, which was very helpful! The guesthouse was stunning and the room we stayed in was absolutely beautiful!!! We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, and overall had a great stay!!! Would definitely go back!

I spent a week at Villa Afrique and although on a business trip I felt thoroughly pampered. From the quality of my room, the warm hospitality and fantastic breakfast - really a lovely place to stay. Thank you for making me so welcome.

For the time we got there at 11:42pm till we left 4 days later at 4am we were made to feel welcome and even part of the family! Just a amazing place to stay with even greater people running it!!!

Breakfast was wonderful and we could pick from a wide variety of dishes and would always have a wonderful conversation to go with it, and great ideas of what to go see on the day.

Rooms where beyond great being cleaned daily sometimes even after having a afternoon nap only to find the bed made when you come back from supper.

We will be trying to get back to Villa Afrique in the near future:)

What a wonderful place,Alma the hostess could not be more attentive, breakfasts were served with a flourish and were excellent.
The villa is beautifully furnished and in an excellent position to visit Cape Town or Cape Point, requiring a drive over the most wonderful scenery.
There are several excellent restaurants nearby which Alma is happy to book to for you.
