Great location, really pleasant and clean rooms, but the thing that makes this such a great place to stay is the staff. All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice and really went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and made a plan for me when I needed it most.

We very much enjoyed our time at The Villa Rosa. The staff was a highlight- both the owner and staff were wonderful and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and changed daily. The rooms were good sized and only a few blocks from the ocean in Sea Point. We would stay again.

A charming, old Victorian style guesthouse with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms unique with their own individual lamps and interior. Try to get a room upstairs since a hippo is rehearsing his scene from Fantasia in the middle of the night once in a while. Breakfast is very relaxed every morning with fresh, self made bread (as we’ve been told) and egg variations. The only negative point is the coffee which turns out to be grey after adding some milk. If you don’t like hotel chains then try this little pearl located in Sea Point. There are cafes, restaurants and a supermarket close by and it’s a nice (longer) walk to the harbor.

Villa Rosa was a breathe of fresh air. Perfect location. Away from the noise but a short walk to the beach. Beautiful decor. Friendly faces. Delightful room. Totally delicious brekkie. Highly recommended.
