Dear Michal,
Thankyou very much for your positive review. You did choose our 'best' room the Luxury Suite, which is enormous and has its own private balcony whcih gets the afternoon and early evening sun. However we have 6 other rooms at the guest house which vary in price according to whether they have balconies/terraces and mountain views or none at all! We do suggest that guests really take their time in choosing the right room for them as they are all different. Our WiFi is probably the best South Africa has to offer (not up to the broadband standards of the rest of the world however) but it is free of charge and covers the whole house and garden.

We were fortunate to stay with Rob and Neil for five nights in October and couldn't have been happier. From our original booking, they were always there, taking care of car hires, offering travel advise and expert restaurant ideas. The B&B is really a small boutique hotel as far as I am concerned, as they provided every amenity possible. Rob or Neil were always available to answer questions or make suggestions and they certainly made our stay in Cape Town memorable. I would not hesitate in recommending Villa Costa Rose to anyone.

Stayed with Rob and Neil for 7 days in total at the start and end of our holiday in south Africa.
The rooms are very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic and more than sets you up for the day ahead. Rob and Neil were always very helpful with restaurant advice, booking trips and taxis. Although classified as a guest house I would say that the Villa Costa rose is as good as any boutique hotel. I suppose the best recommendation, we could give. is that the next time we visit cape town We would ensure that we could stay at the Villa Costa Rose Before booking our flights. John and Jaki

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.
