About Rita Turner
My husband and I fell in love with a wonderful historic Manor House which had been sadly neglected. We set about restoring it to its full former glory dating back to 1898 retaining the outside facade and leaded windows and numerous other features and built totally new bathrooms, kitchens etc. My husband's background in the architectural field combined with my former work at Scandianvian Airlines in Copenhagen led us to make an improptu decision to share our apartments with travelers from all over the World, and to offer them a home from home in Cape Town. It has been great fun, and we look forward to continue sharing Danish/South African hospitality with our guests.
Rita Turner purchased this Apartment in 2003

Exceeded our Expections!
Barry Hall is THE place to stay in Cape Town -- we enjoyed our week enormously! Absolutely gorgeous in architecture and furnishings, completely safe and in a safe area, professionally run, very friendly service, and meeting Rita was a delight. The area offers lots of services and restaurants, yet is out of the busy downtown area. (The convenient MyCiti bus service takes you wherever you want to go.) Rent at Barry Hall with confidence and have a wonderful time!
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Barry Hall Apartments, it was a pleasure having you, enjoy the rest of your visit to South Africa.
We were absolutely delighted by the accommodation at Barry Hall. All you need is there, it's clean, homey and in a perfect location. Rita is a fantastic and very helpful host. Surely we will be back soon.
Thank you for your kind words, it makes hosting different nationalities so special.
We hope to see you back again soon.
Felt just like home
Our stay at Barry Hall was most delightful. The location is terrific if you prefer(like us)to be away from the hustle & bustle of downtown but just a short cab or bus ride from all the action. Rita, the owner, was extremely helpful always available. Being within walking distance of several good restaurants & the beach was an added bonus. We would recommend Barry Hall to everyone & would definitely stay there again.

Charming, comfortable and convenient
We enjoyed a delightful stay at Barry Hall. It is close to restaurants, shopping for any essentials, and transportation. The owner did everything possible to make our stay easy - from arranging airport transportation to personally greeting us at 11 p.m. and checking in regularly to ensure all was going well. The apartment itself is spacious and well furnished with recently updated bathrooms. The surroundings are attractive and comfortable for walking around. The building itself has one, two, and three bedroom apartments to suit parties of various sizes. We loved our stay and would highly recommend.
Great location, wonderful home!
I can't say enough good things about Barry Hall. It is centrally located with great views. We were in apartment 3 with our 2 grown daughters. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable, and the beds were comfortably firm. It is a great value too!
Barry Hall is exactly as the listing describes. It is very clean, well maintained. Rita and the daily! housekeeper were very helpful but were in the background unless you needed them. We walked to dinner in the neighborhood twice, and found that Barry Hall was a great location for getting to the waterfront as well as to other sights near Cape Town.
I would very highly recommend Barry Hall to anyone, especially my friends and relatives.
Thank you for all the compliments paid to us at Barry Hall,
it makes it for a great reward at the end of our summer season, thank you so much.
