Once again a very pleasant stay, and an ideal venue with lots of space to entertain our relatives who reside in Somerset West. Thanks to our hosts Elise and Jake we...

Villa Vista was the perfect accommodation choice for our trip to Somerset West. It is in a peaceful and stunning location set high in the suburbs overlooking the Strand with sea views in the distance.

In a beautiful safe, quiet spot in Somerset West, Villa Vista gives you all the home comforts you need in a comfortable and clean self-catering unit, with stunning views and looking onto a beautiful garden. Everything you need is on hand; Jake will even bring you a bucket of ice if you run short! Definitely a place to return to.

We have just returned from our third visit to South Africa and this is the second time we have stayed at Villa Vista. We cannot recommend it highly enough - it just ticks all the boxes.
