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.
