Make a holiday rental home or self catering cottage in the Winelands, South Africa your home away from home

The house, on a golf estate, has a warm cottagey feel with African themed entertainment areas. The bar was the location for many memorable parties during our stay! This was a repeat visit for us and we enjoyed our stay as much as we had on previous occasions. The owners were very friendly and hospitable and the services of the tireless housekeeper (Victoria) were outstanding. Accommodation was spotless. We have already booked again for next year!

It is very centrally based for sight seeing around the Cape, it is also very sheltered from wind - garden is a sun trap. It has the most fabulous views over mountains and the ocean. You would need a car as area is very hilly - road networks are very good and easy to navigate. Somerset West is by far one of the best areas that we visited. The Villa is extremely clean, is fully equipped with everything you need for your stay, the owner has gone to alot of effort. Cape Town is approx 1/2 hour away, would recommend a visit to Cape Of Good Hope, Hermanus (you will definately see whales during season they are abundant!), V & A Waterfront, Table Mountain and the vineyards (we visited Spier Vineyard which is fantastic) there is so much to see and do - would definately recommend this Villa.
