Even better than advertised, the Pink Lady was fabulous! The rooms are spacious, great touches, well stocked with thoughtful items and the honesty wine is super convenient. Vibrant and buzzy part of town, walking distance to many coffee shops, restaurants and local attractions. Perfect spot to visit this wonderful city. Thanks you guys, we will be back!

Fantastic trip. The house is gorgeous inside & out, it's in a great location & the owners are charming and knowledgable. Some lovely little touches (the honesty bar, Apple TV) made it all the more enjoyable. If you get a chance - go!

The Pink Lady is truly a gem and oasis of tranquility in such a vibrant and central part of Cape Town. We loved the position, the colourful yet tasteful decor, the warmth of our neighbours, and of course our girls absolutely loved the opportunity of many stunning and unique picture moments! We will most definitely be back and recommend to family and friends! Please send our regards to the family next door!!! Such warm people who can add a friendly note and introspective into the real character of the neighborhood! Thank you for a lovely stay in Cape Town! Raffaella, Mark and girls!

Axel and Mario clearly know what they're doing in the hospitality business. They were so great and kind to allow us to check in early and leave our bags for a few hours after check-in. We got to explore a funner side of CT thanks to the great location and kindness of our bodyguard/neighbor/OG, Mona. (There were some neighborhood "rude" boys who tried to hustle and intimidate us but Mona and her family quickly put a stop to that then gave us amazing slices of homemade cake!) It also felt really cool to walk out at any time of day to find tourists swarming around to get a picture in front of it. They'd look at me and wonder if I was the owner and is give them a look like "yeah, my house is adorable isn't it?"... great location and I'd happily stay there again.

The stay at The Pink Lady was wonderful. My friends and I stayed 5 nights in the comfort of this home. The location in Bo Kaap provided easy access to walk to shop and dine. Go with the recommendations in their guide book for spectacular restaurants. The beds were comfortable with beautiful linens and soft towels to use. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed breakfast on the patio. On arrival there were meats, cheese, fresh fruit and bread to enjoy with wine supplied by our hosts. After a day of flying this made the start of our trip so easy. Thanks you for sharing this lovely home with us.

The house owners are very welcoming as well as the neighbours living next door This area is really nice with all the pretty coloured houses. It felt safe to walk around in the neighbouring streets visting restaurants also in the evenings. The house itself was perfect for us (3 colleagues on a business/tourist trip) with 3 separated bedrooms with enough privacy as well as areas to socialise. We walked to the convention center CTICC in 15 minutes. The days we had for vacation we hired the neighbour guy who is a driver taking us around. That was perfect for us since we had short of time for exploring the area. We really recommend this house!

My partner Mario Motti and me travelled extensively on business and privately, getting to know many of the hotels and guest houses both in Europe and the entire world. We really felt at home far from home in privately run charming villas and homes. That is why we created these cosy and charming spaces for the discerned traveller in Cape Town and Franschhoek(wine lands)
One of our hobbies is to enjoy good food and wine, best pairing them together. As previous owner of a winery with hotel and restaurant we happily inform our guests about the best restaurants in Cape Town and the wine lands.
Welcome to Cape Town!
