Fantastic hosts - very helpful service - Nicely decorated room, clean and well kept premises. Short walking distance to the shoreline, restaurants and shops. Minutes by taxi to V & A Waterfront. Breakfast was a real treat!

I booked this guest house because i was going to a work do close by and I didn't want to drink and drive. My expectations weren't high as i only needed a bed and it was quite reasonable. However there were such a lot of small inconveniences that i feel I'd like to make note of them. Firstly the water... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Obviously we're very distressed at getting such a bad one, which is a first for us, but that doesn't change your impressions. Firstly, we think that it's a delightful room, although it doesn't have a view and indeed looks onto an ivy covered wall - we're really not the kind of place... More

Comfortable, clean, convenient. Close to sea, restaurants, shul, on bus route. Lynn, Heather and Papi always go the extra mile. We always stay there when we visit our family in Cape Town. Highly recommended.

My mom and I recently stayed 5 nights there and we loved it. The rooms and bathroom were very spacious and their breakfast section was super. Fresh, tasty, and delicious food. The location is a great plus as well, with various supermarkets and restaurants all within walking distance away ,as well as the beach. We felt very safe and I... More

We stayed at Villa Rosa in Sept 2014. The staff and owners were very welcoming and company during breakfast time was enjoyable. The room was very comfortable and the although we didn't use the small kitchen, it was well equipped. Its located within easy distance to the V&A Waterfront. We enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer.... More
