“Beautiful House in Stunning Location”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We stayed at Vrede Self Catering with our grown-up children so the house was fully occupied but plenty of room and space for us all group of 7 the service was excellent we had everything there we needed and after a day out travelling through the vine yards or visiting Table Mountain we looked forward to returning to watching the beautiful sun-sets at this stunning location. We also visited Hermanus and was lucky enough to see the whales still in the bay the boat trip is a must ! We drove the coast roads and just stopped off at lots of beaches along the way so many places to visit

“Relaxing, Peaceful, Great View - Great Value!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My wife, baby and extended family stayed at the Vrede Self Catering main unit during our December 2012 holiday and it was more that what we expected. Magie went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The property was easily accessible, secure, clean and catered to all our needs. The kids had a lot of place to play, swim and relax. Free internet and a full satelite TV service makes it a great stay.
It is a great lock-up and stay self catering unit. The Somerset-West location made the eastern part of the Western-Cape a joy to explore.

“Best in town”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This is easily the best establishment we've ever stayed at. The owner is the friendliest host and nothing is spared to ensure guests have a 5 star experience when staying at Vrede. The spacious flat is fitted with anything you can think of to make your stay as luxurious and comfortable as possible. You can also enjoy walks on the tranquil estate with the most beautiful views. I will recommend Vrede as the most serene and luxurious self-catering experience, still close to amenities and shops.

“Excellent! 5-star luxury accommodation in a beautiful estate. And at a very reasonable price!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

My wife and I spent a 2-week holiday in Somerset West, basing ourselves at the Vrede Self Catering on the Boskloof Eco-Estate. We had an amazing stay and agree that it is one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed – absolutely no complaints! We didn’t want to leave. The setting is excellent, about a 5-min drive out of the town, situated in a tranquil, expansive, bush (fynbos) covered estate, nestled into some forested hills and complete with its own small lake. The views over False Bay, especially at sunset, are truly spectacular. On clear days you can see right across the bay to the Cape of Good Hope. The estate offers kilometers of well-maintained trails for walking and running, or you can go for a swim or canoe in the lake. The estate is very safe and secure with 24-hour manned gate and a big fence around the entire estate.

We stayed in the Deluxe Unit, a very roomy 1-bedroom apartment, and as the name implies, it is deluxe with high quality workmanship, furnishings and fittings. They spared no expense on ensuring a quality apartment. The apartment is airy and bright with lots of windows, a full kitchen, dining, and lounge area, all open plan, plus a laundry room with washer and dryer. There are big TVs with DSTV in both the lounge and bedroom. The outdoor veranda is an excellent spot to watch the sunset over the south Atlantic. The free Wifi connection was a huge bonus and was one of the reasons we chose this place.

The hostess/owner, Maggie, was wonderful and she looked after us very well. She was very helpful with our many enquiries and was very attentive to service, even ensuring there was food in our fridge for our late night arrival. We couldn’t have had a better stay. I can’t recommend this establishment highly enough – as I mentioned before, one of the best places we’ve ever stayed. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to all other travelers.

“"The best home away from home"”
Reviewed November 14, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Sometimes people go the extra mile, Maggie the owner goes much further than that. She is genuinely concerned about your well being, check if you have arrived safely and nothing is too much! Wish there were more establishments and people like her. The accommodation is excellent and high quality and excellently priced (value for money)

“Vrede Self Catering is classy with an awesome view of Somerset West”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Because we arrived late, the host ensured that we reached our destination safely by calling us and giving us directions to her place and theapartment allocated to us. The next morning we received a very warm welcome by the host - friendly and a people's person, suitable for this kind of business.

Boskloof Estate is a real luxury area with exclusive properties. The environment is secured with boom gate and security guards 24/7, we felt so secured and safe from the estate entrance.
The property location is superb, the property itself - Vrede Self Catering is very classy with a breath taking view of Somerset West from a high point. Beautiful view of the town at dawn and sunset, viewed from the apartment window.
