My wife and I stayed this September ('12) in Villa Montebello which sits high on Mount Rhodes. We found the location to be within easy travel to the various sites we were interested in seeing; Cape Town, Wine Country, Cape Peninsula, Kirstenbosch Gardens. Catherine and Patrice are gracious hosts who came here from France and have created a charming and lovely home. The breakfast is elegant and they will successfully make you anything you want. They are quite knowledgeable about the area and are eager to share their insights to make your stay enjoyable. We opted to stay in the smaller outside room and it was fine for our purposes since we were going to be out and about. For more space or if you intent to be in the room more, the suites in the home offer beautiful accommodations and breathtaking views. Security concerns were addressed by security systems and we never felt the slightest bit ill at ease. Patrice and Catherine are very hospitable and we would definitely opt to stay again with them at Villa Montebello if we return to Cape Town.
