What people have to say about us

For me this is the perfect coworking space, its very central inside of Muizenberg. The people at Amava are very creative and open minded, always up for a chat and exchanging ideas. During loadshedding the wifi still works and the internet ist pretty fast. Nearby are many nice places to have lunch but there is a kitchen at Amava as well.
