Among many other tourist attractions, the vineyards, golf courses and the East and West coasts, as well as the cities of Cape Town, Hermanus, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek are reached from here in a short time. The famous golf course 'Erinvale' and the estate 'Vergelegen,' one of the finest wineries at the Cape, is in close proximity to our house. Start your day with a delicious and varied breakfast and let us help you plan your activities. We know the area very well and have a number of suggestions for you. Whether it's the theme of 'golf', or to the question of which destinations should not be missed, to the selection of the restaurant, we're here to help and we have one or the other 'secret tip' for you. After an exiting and eventful day your guesthouse awaits you to rest and relax. Take a refreshing dip in the saltwater pool, treat yourself with a nice cup of coffee or a cool drink or just take a 'nap' in our beautiful flower garden. Our goal is to help you to make the most valuable time of the year as pleasant as possible. We want you to feel completely at ease and that you take with you back home the best possible impression of South Africa and from your accommodation.

Wir waren vom 27.11. bis 18.12. zu Gast bei Peter und May. Peter und May haben alles getan, das wir uns wirklich wie zu Hause gefühlt haben. Nur mit besserem Wetter und eine Super Aussicht auf die Stadt Strand. Egal welche Frage wir hatten, Peter wußte eine Antwort. Er hat uns Restaurants empfohlen, hat für uns Plätze reserviert. Ebenfalls hat er uns Ausflugsziele empfohlen bzw. bei bestimmten Fragen, die er nicht beantworten konnte, hat er sich sofort schlau gemacht. Er hat uns Routenplaner usw. ausgedruckt. Das Frühstück war super und abwechslungsreich. Für uns waren es rundum drei Wochen gelungener Urlaub, besser geht es einfach nicht. Wer in Kapstadt Urlaub machen möchte, dem kann ich Somerset Sights B&B nur empfehlen.

Amazing views and
I traveled to Somerset West, SA last January to go to a wedding. I stayed at the B&B for 3 days and it was amazing. Peter, Mai and everybody at the house are welcoming, helpful and they really make their guests feel like home. Their house is beautiful, amazing views, comfortable and safe. The rooms are beautiful, comfy and spacious as well. The breakfast was delicious and I enjoyed the fact that all guests had breakfast together which was really cool because I had the opportunity to meet people from around the world. I will definitely recommend Somerset Sights B&B and if I ever go back to Somerset I would love to stay with them again.

Dear Paty, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate that. Not only because you gave us a very positive review. It is always important to get feedback. We don't take it for granted. Who thinks he is good, stopped trying to get better. In this sense we continue trying to make the stay of our guests as best as possible. All the best for you. Kind regards, Peter & Mai

About the neighbourhood
Somerset West is rightly regarded as one of the nicest suburbs of Cape Town. Here you can escape the hustle and bustle of Cape Town and yet you’re only a 'stone’s throw' away from it. Somerset West is beautifully situated between mountains and the ocean and through its central location offers the ideal starting point for your activities. From here you can be in the centre of Cape Town in 30 minutes, at the International Airport in 20 minutes and in the idyllic town of Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, in 15 minutes. From this wine-growing area you can reach other wine-growing areas such as Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek in 20-50 minutes. With the metropolis of Cape Town and it's famous Waterfront, the beautiful Cape Peninsula, the magnificent wine-growing areas around Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, the famous Garden Route along the south coast as well as the cultural and culinary diversity, the Western Cape Province is a fascinating holiday destination. You are in the middle of wine country and popular destinations such as the famous Vergelegen wine estate or the Erinvale Golf Club and the Helderberg Nature Reserve are practically on your doorstep.
