Harpers House To describe Harpers House using conventional terms is difficult because it’s pretty unconventional, which is a good thing. Harpers House is an upmarket boutique guesthouse that embraces the idea of shared and communal spaces, while marrying old world aesthetic, with modern design. Nestled in the heart of Cape Town’s trendy Green Point area, it offers accommodation to the discerning, open-minded traveller. One, who prefers to avoid the formulaic, and downright boring, offerings of hotels. The kind of traveller, who appreciates design and intriguing spaces, but is also in search of something different. Someone like you perhaps. Harper’s House has 8 rooms in total that were designed and curated by South African designer, Danie Louw. Each has its own personality, and consists of everything you might need during your stay. You also have the option to book the house as a whole. In keeping with our unconventional nature, bathrooms are shared. Both floors have two lavishly appointed lavatories, with separate bathtubs and showers. The use of shared spaces allows our guests to interact and create a unique experience, while always having the option to retreat to the privacy of their rooms. If it’s an intimate, exciting, and inspiring space filled with like-minded travellers that you’re after, then you’re at the right place.
