Amali Guest Houses

Amali Guest Houses is a beautifully restored turn of the century Homestead where guests are offered comfortable accommodation in a tranquil area, whilst being in close proximity to restaurants, shops and historical sites in and around town. When the owner, Marlize decided to open her family business she decided to keep the name of the guest house in the family. The name “Amali” then originated by combining the names of the owner Marlize and her two daughters Amé and Lize.
