Reviews from Avatara Guest House guests
“I stayed at Avatara with two friends on a first time trip to SA. I could not have chosen a better place. It’s in a quiet & safe area and the location in Green point is close to the major attractions. The host Cher was pleasant from our initial communications to our stay, giving us much needed tips etc. It does feel like home and I would stay here again,” wrote ginika_0 on their TripAdvisor page.
