Harry and Chelsy’s ex-love shack turned into Guest House

Now visitors to Cape Town can sample a taste of royal living for themselves by staying in the Royal Love Nest Guest House.

Prince Harry and his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy’s South African home where the couple spent many romantic days, has been turned into a guest house named “Royal Love Nest Guest House”. Spacious detached property with double garage is situated in tone of the city’s most pleasant suburbs. The home is also just a short drive from its spectacular beaches and world-famous Table Mountain.

Prince Harry was a frequent visitor to the house where he and ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy shared charming white-washed bedroom, while Harry’s bodyguard slept in the room next door.

The stylish £240,000 Four Bedroom property, which is situated in the exclusive suburb of Newlands, was bought for Chelsy by her parents while she was studying at the nearby University. And When Chelsy Davy graduated with a degree in PPE and moved to England in order to be close to her boyfriend, it was put on the market for sale and snapped up by British-based Pumla and Madoda Hoshe in March 2007.

Couple bought this house as their holiday home to spend their precious holidays. But the couple quickly realized it could become a money maker and turned it into a guest house charging between £50 and £95 a Bed and Breakfast(B&B).


Mrs Hoshe, 40, a medical technician, said: “I was delighted to hear the house was for sale. It is a dream to make it into a guesthouse because Harry and Chelsy spent lots of special time there together including Chelsy’s 21st birthday”.

“I suppose they did whatever young couples get up to behind closed doors. The guests find the history of the house very exciting”.


Mrs Hoshe now lives in London and says they have had incredible response since Guest House opening.

“They all say the place is lovely and we have even managed to impress our first honeymoon couple. It is a very safe and upmarket area and I can say it is the only guest house in the area which is owned by a black woman. For tourists it’s an adventure to stay there: it’s a modern setup and we’re offering true South African hospitality with foods like my mother’s tasty corn bread”.

“I don’t believe their break up is for keeps. I imagine they just need to sort out their lives before they get serious again”, Mrs Hoshe said about Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy’s split.
