A centrally located B&B, scrupulously clean, with comfortable furnishings. I stayed in a room facing the busy road, but found with the blinds drawn, the sound was adequately dampened. The breakfast was delicious.

Villa Rosa is a Romantic Place to stay if you are visiting Capetown. Rooms are very clean, staff was nice and extremely helpful. Breakfast in a nice setting. Great value! The only downside was the busy road in front of the guesthouse. Anyway, we will stay there again.

The Villa Rosa is in a great location for us. Very convenient for walking along the water and for shopping. Lots of synagogues and kosher food within walking distance. The staff was very helpful with information and arrangements. Our room was really comfy and had lots of closet space. The main drawback was a really dangerous step down into the... More

Thanks for your review. There's not much we can do about the step - but if we have a brainwave, we'll put it into action! There is a notice however to remind guests that there is a step. We hope to see you again in the future. More

The people are warm and welcoming, and the place is beautiful. The breakfast is delicious also. I stayed in the "small bright room", which has a funny little shower and powder room, but they forewarned me that it was small (and even sent me photos ahead of time). The location is perfect. I would certainly stay there again!

We have stayed a few times now at the Villa Rosa and have always tremendously enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean and the staff go out of their way to ensure we have a pleasant stay. Well situated close to the beaches and to town.

Warm atmosphere. The two most helpful sisters kept and added to the charm of this wonderful building. Beds very comfortable, beautiful linens which you dont find very often. Staff was friendly and food was very good. Cannot say enough positives about the cleanliness. We would go back. Highly recommended. Marie Dion Gevisser + Gary Gevisser + Mango

This was our second stay at Villa Rosa in 16 months. We could not have ask for more helpful and friendly people to stay with. Our plans changed slightly and the staff at VR were extremely helpful in sorting out details regarding all aspects of being away from home. I would not consider staying anyplace else while in Cape Town.... More
