“We loved it here and definitely will be back”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed at the Villa Costa Rose for 4 nights and had a wonderful time.
The guest house is located at very quiete place, but anyway near to restaurants, shops, puplic transportation and the beach. The district is very safe and we never were afraid or so.
Guest house it self is beautifully furnished and has a very nice pool area.
Rob and Neil are great hosts and have "an eye for the detail".
Both of them were already very helpful in advance when planning our trip, and then on the spot ave us a few very useful hints and tips during our stay.
I was so glad I had chosen this small personal guest house insted of a bigger hotel.
Definitely will recommend the VCR to people and hopefully be back myself before long.
A great facility which they offer free of charge, is to use a private bath room on the day one leaves. With our evening flight we were anyway able to spend the whole day at the beach and then have a shower and get changed before our flight

A design place that combines great location with very lovely service. A couple of nice restaurants nearby, cabs always available quickly, easy to walk to the Waterfront while admiring CT's beauties. Robert and Neil are cool and nice, always ready to help.

Room Tip: The room by the pool is the best!

Dear Guests,

Thanks for your review. The room by the pool is our Garden Queen, and it is a separate building so its great for guests that want peace and quiet away from the main house. The only downside is it doesn't have a view of Table Mountain/Lions Head/Signal Hill which some have our other roons do have! We suggest guests really take care in choosing the right room when booking.

We spent two nights in Cape Town and enjoyed it very much. This place is close (3 minutes with car) to the V&A Waterfront and in a very save area (you can even walk back at night). The rooms are very modern and clean with a lot of helpful details (Book with reviewed restaurants around, tips what you can do in Cape Town ... ). The breakfast was simply perfect!!! We can highly recommend it!

We were in South Africa to celebrate our 50th Anniv. We definitely chose the right place to stay. Everything, and we mean everything was top notch. Breakfasts were superb, esp. the fresh fruit and cheeses. Perfect area for using as a base..........felt safe walking to restaurants, mall or the sea walkway which is only about 4 blocks from the guest house. Highly, most highly recommend.

Room Tip: Chose a 3rd floor room with King sized bed. Stairs no problem since Neil carried the heavier luggag...

Dear Guests,

Thanks for the wonderful review, we are are so pleasd you enjoyed your stay! We are very lucky to have some exellent restaurants literally on our doorstep, which is great for guests that dont want to hire cars or take cabs. This also means that the usual designated driver can enjoy a glass (or two) of delicious South African wine!

Interested hosts who try their utmost to make you feel at home in their beautifully designed and decorated comfortable guesthouse. Well-situated in CapeTown. An unforgettable experience. A copious breakfast in their small but excellent designed garden with swimming-pool made the day start gloriously

We had a really enjoyable stay in the guest house. The quality of service and friendliness have been mentioned in most other reviews and we can only agree. The rooms are well designed and the visitor guide, especially the section on restaurants,was excellent and showed a real attention to detail that makes this place special. The option to have a shower after checking out was much appreciated and helped us make the most of the last few hours in a beautiful setting. Sea Point is great if you want easy access to the beaches and also be close to the Waterfront and City Centre areas.

Room Tip: Spend a little more to get a bigger room with a terrace.

Dear Guest,

Thankyou for your review. When guests check in at Villa Costa Rose we give them lots of information about Cape Town and the surrounding area. However because there is so much to do we have also provided a 'welcome pack' in each room with much more detailed info including a list of recommended and reviewed restaurants. We are situated in Sea Point so have many of these great eateries within walking distance, and its safe to walk here 24/7.
