The first impression of Villa Coloniale is very charming when you drive in from the street. The garden is very lush and the white colonial style building fits very well in. Unfortunately this so called paradise in paradise does not meet the expectations that one has when staying at a 5 star guesthouse. We stayed for 12 nights at the... More

We stayed here for three weeks and during that whole time didn´t have a single thing to complain about. That must be a record! The guesthouse is beautiful and Raymond and Cornelia are wonderful hosts. Breakfast in the garden is a delight. We would thoroughly recommend Villa Coloniale to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

We stayed with Raymond and Cornelia for just over two weeks whilst visiting family and friends in Cape Town. My future in-laws are from Germany and really enjoyed the European touch and language proficiency of our hosts. Their service is immaculate and they won't hesitate to go the extra mile to help out. I got engaged on this trip and... More

Owners, Raymond and Cornelia, are special people. Our flight from Amsterdam was delayed by 2 hours, meaning that we arrived at Villa Coloniale at about midnight. I had called Raymond from Amsterdam to warn him... no problem, he said, and graciously met us, and showed us our suite, at midnight. It was a great place to start our working holiday... More

Raymond and Cornelia, the owners of this property redefine what "can do" means. They also understand what customer focus is. The property is everything they say it is. Peaceful, safe and beautiful. This would also explain why the bird life is so abundant in the property. This was our first time and most certainly our choice for future stays in... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Villa Coloniale offers 10 villas / B & B's that are located on a beautiful private house.

We have stayed at Villa Coloniale twice now (in Dec 2010 and Dec 2011) and consider this the perfect home away from home in Cape Town. Raymond and Cornelia are perfect hosts and the rooms are beautiful. No other b&b comes close to Villa Coloniale.
