A peaceful and quiet haven, situated on the hillside and giving wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and over False Bay. Perfectly located for visits to Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Gordon's Bay and the many wineries in the area. The suites are very comfortable, spotless and equipped with everything you may need for your stay. We appreciated the tea/coffee making... More

Somerset West is perfectly located to explorer the area. The guesthouse is located in a quite district on the hill. The rooms are very clean. The beds are very comfortable. We had a private balcony/terrace with a great view on the coast line. The hosts are very very friendly! We enjoyed our stay a lot!

I recently had two stays at huis waveren totaling five days. Susan and Willem are charming attentive but non intrusive hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. The views are stunning, the accommodation spotless and comfortable with attention to detail, and the breakfasts delicious and a little bit different. I will definitely stay there again.

We couldn't have selected a better place to stay. Spacious room, peaceful location with fantastic veranda view out to False Bay. Best of all was the superb food and '5-star' attentive service from Susan and Willem - excellent hosts. Secure driveway parking spot and entrance; able to come and go. This is an ideal location for touring the area -... More

A short overnight stay - in early and departed early. I was well received and made to feel very welcome. Spacious, comfortable and clean. I have no hesitation in returning for a future stay when in the Stellenbosch/ Somerset West region.

Besides the beautiful view, the delicious breakfasts and peace and quietness, Huis Waveren makes one feel at home. I will never stay somewhere else again in Somerset West and only recommends Huis Waveren.

We spent one night at this wonderful guest house. Super room, great view, scrumptious breakfast, very quiet, and delightful owners (Willem and Susan). This is the place to stay in Somerset West, and is perfect for getting to Cape Town airport.
