I spent five days at Cape Vermeer and I had the most wonderful time. Bart, Richard and their staff are incredibly personable, charming and helpful. The breakfasts are delightful and my apartment was gorgeous with stunning views. I cannot recommend Cape Vermeer highly enough!

Property's Favourite Review
We had the most fantastic stay at Cape Vermeer. Everything about it was world class, truly deserving of its 5 stars! Thoughtfully furnished, spacious rooms, a nice big pool and the most stunning view of the sea and the surrounding mountains. The service was just phenomenal with individual attention being paid to each and every person staying there. Never before have we stayed in a place where every guests experience is paramount to the team, Richard especially was so fantastic in not just remembering your likes and dislikes, but going out of his way to make sure that your every whim is catered to, really incredible! Breakfast was not just tasty, it was a whole experience and it was marvelous! I cannot recommend this place enough to everyone going to Somerset west. It's a very short ride to Cape Town, the Winelands, Strand, Stellenbosch so you really cannot choose a better place to stay in. We are definitely coming back!

It was my second time at this place and it keeps on getting better. The food is amazing and the views are stunning. The hosts are also super friendly and helpful. Close to Stellenbosch but also the coast for surfing.
