About Liziwe's Guest House

Liziwe Ngcokoto is the owner of Liziwe's Guest House. Before the establishment of the house she bought the plot, lived in a shack on the plot for five years in Guguletu and then decided to build a house. Together with her husband, they worked towards building their home and decided to extend their home into a welcoming Guest House.

“My husband and I have come a long way, from staying in a shack on the plot and receiving a donation of bricks from Sappi Craft where my husband has been working for 25 years. He would come home and clean bricks, and today that has paid off, we have beautiful walls and a home that we decided to turn into a Guest house, This has been a thrilling and exciting journey for us,” says Liziwe.

This business minded women has come a long way and now owns a beautiful Guest House that is well recognized, both nationally and internationally. Liziwe has also established a restaurant at her guest house for both the local and international market to come and savour the taste of traditional African cuisine and ambience. The restaurant caters for 25 people and has been well received.


If you want a taste of something different in Cape Town, Liziwe’s Guest House is more than happy to oblige, with delicious African meals in our restaurant. You can phone and book for lunch and dinner - and we also do breakfast (breakfast is primarily for the Guest House guests).

The stay at lizewe's was an experience not just a stay. We did the township tour and had breakfast and dinner. It was something unique and special. Andrew and Robert are amazing hosts and have a gift of sharing their story of life in the township. It's the one stay I keep on talking about at home.

We really enjoyed our stay at Liziwe's! The Guest House has everything you need after a long flight. It's a great thing this guest house is in Gugulethu, so you get to see te 'other side' of South Africa too. Andrew took great care of us after one of our bags got lost at the airport. Because of that we had the time to get to know the owners a bit. Liziwe's husband Donald told his inspiring story, which I hope will be told to the kids in Gugulethu till the end of times. Furthermore the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. So what else do you need to begin a great South African adventure?
