While on a family get away I decided to book an extra day in Somerset West. Huis Waveren was the ideal choice. Susan and Willem went out of their way to make me and my family feel welcome. From contacting me the night before our arrival to make sure everything is perfect, to the personalized welcome card on the bed,... More

We stayed at Huis Waveren very briefly as a stopover in Somerset West while attending a wedding. With this being our third wedding in three months, we have almost become pros at overnight-ing it and yet our stay here was probably the most memorable because of the welcome and attention we received from Susan and her husband. As we arrived... More

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!

Excellent venue, quiet rooms, great hosts, they accommodated my needs exceptionally well, I highly recommend this establishment, I will be using them in future. This B&B is placed out of the city precinct and has excellent views of the ocean and coastline

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.
