Elise welcomed me with a lovey cocktail and made me feel comfortable right from the start. What a divine view and easy location to Somerset West. The pool is invitingly right outside my room. Everything in the room was pristinely clean and attractively decorated. Elise also invited me for a glass of wine and checked on me in the evening as I travelled alone.

We stayed for 17 days in March 2020 in apartment 1 and we liked the large rooms and in the garden we enjoyed the view and the swimmingpool. Helderberg is a nice place close to good shops and a large shoppingmall. As golfers we played on 6 golfscourses within 45 minutes drive. We thank Elise and Jake for the hospitality.

Villa Vista was perfect for our family of 4. The apartment is very spacious & well equipped with everything we needed for a 2 week stay. Somerset West is a great base location for going into Cape Town & visiting the local wine estates and there was parking for our hire car. The hosts Elise & Jake were friendly & helpful too. We would definitely return!

We can recommend the large apartment no. 1 we have been living in for nearly 2 months very much. The rooms are well furnished, clean and comfortable. A washing machine as well as a dishwasher are helpful. The hospitality is superb. We felt at home and come back next year ! Villa Vista is situated very favourably to the wine yards and beach.

A spacious self catering unit with beautiful views with pool, braai and lapa. It is very central and close to surrounding wine farms on the R44 and the beach in Strand. We definitely will be back for another visit.

On our first visit to Villa Vista we thought that the larger apartment was the owners accommodation as it was so large. We have had several stays there and now is our first choice when we book for Cape Town but always have to book well in advance.Somerset West has plenty of shops and restaurants within a few minutes drive. We took an Uber to Stellenbosch which only took 20 minutes.Thanks and best wishes to Elise and Jake for their warm hospitality.

We stayed here for 3 week while running from one place to the other and enjoying the pleasures of the Western Cape. But after every day we came to this place where it felt like coming home. A personal space with a very homelike feeling. The owners are lovely and not far away while still letting you be. Lovely view of the ocean,waking up with a sunrise that will make you feel like you've found paradise. 25 Minutes to get to Cape Town, 20 miutes to Stellenbosch and 10 minutes to the seaside. Definitly coming back.

In the lap of Nature...a vineyard resides, far from the madding crowd of Cape Town visitors... place is Stellenbosch & Franschhoek....Guess the town was developed by Dutch soldiers and you could be certain...you would not need any introduction

We took both apartments for the final week of our holiday, a really good decision. The owners Elise and Jake made us most welcome as did their lovely Collie Jessie! The smaller apartment was perfect for my Wife's Mother and the larger apartment was ideal for my Wife and I, the larger one having full kitchen and dining room. The photographs on this website don't really do justice to this wonderful facility. This is the best swimming pool we have encountered in the area. Outside Lappa is beautiful with built in Brai and a great addition to the property. We will definitely visit again!
