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!

The owners are responsible and professional. The property manager is prompt, responsive, and anticipates needs even before they are conveyed. The home is simply lovely with elegant furnishings and decor, well appointed with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The yard is peaceful with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. There are hiking trails nearby for morning walks, vineyards to explore, and a neighborhood park for the kids to play. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming. Stellenbosch is one of the most charming towns on the planet. We have so many wonderful memories of our three months in Villa Agulhas and recommend it with enthusiasm!
