“As Wonderful As the First Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

After a first visit to the Villa Rosa in 2008, we came back in January 2014. And it was perfect again - just what we wanted. Tranquility and character a five minute walk from the Sea Point promenade. The breakfast room was itself a haven before beginning the day, and the staff was always polite and charming. The Villa Rosa can also arrange for you a convenient and well-priced airport transfer. Little more to say except that we will be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice!

We enjoyed the homeliness of Villa Rosa, which has a lot of character, tastefully decorated. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming, and the room was very comfortable. Also conveniently situated, in a pleasant area.

Very nice, comfortable & lovely:
The Breakfast is great
The location is central
The people really nice
The room big enough
And I'm sensitive to the decoration which was gorgeous.
What else to say? You're not gonna regret it if you choose this accomodation.

I stayed 8 nights and enjoyed it immensely. A beautiful house with attractive, and spotless rooms. Managment and staff were all gracious, accomodating, and breakfast was of a high standard. Location is short walk to the wonderful Seapoint promenade as well as Seapoint's Main Street. Many excellent restaurants in walking distance especially The Salzburger, La Perla, La Boheme, and Bella Italia. I plan to stay again at this high quality and reasonably priced house.

Room Tip: I liked Room 6. It is on the quiet side.

I really loved staying at The Villa Rosa. Lynn, Heather, Papi and the whole staff were very friendly. They were very accommodating to my needs and would go there again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend this place!

The guesthouse has spaceous rooms and a very nice breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have any requests or need help planning your stay in Cape Town just ask them and they will sort it out. The location is very convenient and parking is available. Take some time in the morning for breakfast. It sometimes takes a bit of time but it is very good. It felt like a real home for the few days we spent there. Wifi is available. I would definitely go back and stay there again. There are many good guesthouses but the service here was just 100% personal. Thank you...

My husband and I just spent 6 wonderful nights at the Villa Rosa. Sisters Lynn and Heather are remarkable owners/hosts and all of the staff (most notably Papy) are friendly,gracious, knowledgeable and accommodating ! All of our needs were met...........The B&B is in a grand old house so there will be creaks and old style keys etc, but the decor and furnishings (and updated bathrooms!) with an overall sense of warmth and style are beguiling. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: no elevator so if you don't want to carry bags up a staircase, request ground floor.
