“Superb Vrede”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I recently stayed six nights at Vrede and this was a five star de luxe experience.

Driving up the Estate you know you are in for a serious treat with a room with a view, and this it is. I was welcomed by lovely host/owner Maggie Howes and quickly shown around in the luxurious appartment. A truly grand appartment with lovely decorations and great finishes. Add to this a fantastic bed, excellent bathroom with great shower, well appointed kitchen, a large flatscreen TV with full DSTV bouquet and a great terrace with pool, overlooking False Bay, and there is nothing left to wish for. Another bonus is the lovely claning lady tidying up the place six days a week.

I can honestly say I have been to places, but this is seriously the best self catering spot I've ever been to. Only one small remark to make: should you have upstairs neighbors, you will hear them moving chairs or walking around. But perhaps mine made some extra noise. For the rest nothing but praise!

A great house with great comfort, incl. Pool, washing machine, dishwasher.
Fantastically quiet position in a very well-guarded Eco-Estate (Boskloof Eco-Estate).
Majestic views of Sommerset West and beach.
Very nice owner and very friendly and unobtrusive staff.
We had a lovely time in Vrede.

“Wonderful wedding weekend”
Reviewed June 10, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The perfect setting to our wedding weekend! Even though we only live about 4km from the guesthouse we decided to treat ourselves to what can only be described as a home-from-home.

The friendly welcome, attention to detail and setting was unsurpassed. The location is a hidden gem in the Helderberg. We will definitely be recommending the establishment.

“A piece of heaven”
Reviewed May 24, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

No photo could even begin to give one the idea of what you'll find when you arrive at Vrede. It is overwhelmingly good. It is clean, spacious, safe, luxurious and much-much more than one could ever imagine! Close to the airport, wine routes, some of the most excellent restaurants in the country and the view from all the windows and balcony is to die for! I recommend it highly. Thank you Maggie and staff! (P.S. We were lucky to see the magnificent meteorite on Friday afternoon (20 May 2016) over Strand / Somerset West area.
