Beautiful location with dream sunsets.
Great homre with all the facilities you need including a braai. And if you have any questions is there the perfect service from Maggie and here team. This is the perfect location!
My wife and I have just returned to UK after spending a fantastic 3 weeks at Vrede, Somerset West, Ideally placed for exploring this wonderful part of the world.
We stayed in the Luxury Apartment at Vrede, there are 3 others which I would be certain will be of the same exceptionally high standard. The Owner, Maggie, was extremely helpful at all times, right from the outset of the booking process, and was always discretely available in the event of any queries. We were some 6 hours late in arriving but this did not adversely affect the warm welcome from Maggie and her right-hand man William who carried our luggage and showed us round the apartment. William proved to be a treasure throughout our stay, apart from at weekends, taking care of house keeping chores, cleaning washing etc. as required.
The apartment itself has the benefit of a magnificent location, set high above Somerset West with extensive views across False Bay towards The Cape Peninsular, the sunsets were a particular delight each evening! The level and quality of equipment and furnishings at Vrede is exceptionally good, Maggie has spared no expense to make sure that her guests have a memorable stay.
Location is very good indeed, the Airport is about 30 minutes away and Cape Town another 15 minutes or so beyond that. The coast road down to Hermanus is truly spectacular and is easily accessed. We, however spend most our time exploring and indulging ourselves in the Wine Estates surrounding Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. These establishments are the real highlight for us, offering wine tasting usual followed by an indulgent lunch on an outside terrace with amazing views.
We have travelled extensively and would recommend The Western Cape for anyone who enjoys good food and wine, not to mention the spectacular scenery
Very neat and clean. Beautiful views from the Studio unit. Friendliness (Maggie and the people working for her). Enjoyed the big and soft bed/mattress (Kingsize).
I absolutely LOVE this place! I have stayed in Vrede many times when visiting Somerset West for business, and have never been disappointed. All the apartments are fantastic - luxurious, with lots of space and a wonderful view!
One of the best places I ever stayed anywhere in the world. Great location paired with excellent facilities. I'll be back.
