Just wow... It was an amazing stay.... to be able to have experienced God's creation with the perfect sunset to a spectacular sunrise... the tranquillity of nature surrounding you was just beyond breathtaking... what a gem of complete luxury with all your needs met.

Thanks Maggie for making us feel so special. I will most definitely be returning.

Vrede was an absolute treat to spend our holiday. The attention to detail in the apartment is awesome, and such a lovely and secure setting. We loved it!

“Better than the best......”

This year, for the 5th time in a row, we were very happy to be able to stay at ‘Vrede Self Catering’ in Somerset West, South Africa for a total of three months. Though the start of our stay was a bit disturbing (to say the least). Because of a long draught, all vegetation was extremely dry. Now and then fires broke out all over the Western Cape. Two days before our arrival, such a fire flared up in ‘Boskloof Eco Estate’ (where ‘Vrede Self Catering’ is situated). Sparks had been blown over from a huge fire on the other side of the mountain. The fire was immediately attacked by helicopters, carrying lots of water and firefighters with firetrucks. Luckily after a day of tension, we were given the green light: our stay could start as planned. Though initially on the day of the actual fire, it looked very bad with all the smoke, after we arrived it turned out that only some trees on a slope high up at the back of the houses and just a few shrubs in front were affected. We were so happy to see that the beautiful view from the house was not affected at all. And now, after six weeks, on the slopes in the back, you could already see new, bright green growth appearing. It turns out that ‘Boskloof’ is a real ‘ECO Estate’.
The stay at ‘Vrede’ was great, as always before. You could possibly not want for anything there. The fact that we keep coming back (in our navigation we call it ‘Home Too’) has several reasons. The great seasonal weather, an enormous amount of golf courses nearby, perfect restaurants and wine estates almost around the corner. Friendly people and a great atmosphere. Plus of course the more than perfect accommodation. The owner, Maggie Howes is in our opinion the world’s (OK, Africa’s…) best host. Just one small example? This year in passing, we mentioned that we are not too fond using the air conditioning in the bedroom -stuffed noses-, but with all the windows open, sometimes the odd mosquito dared to visit us.
No surprise: the next morning a local firm appeared at our door. Maggie had ordered them to also fit fly screens in the last windows. It is an old joke, but I think that if you ever would ask Maggie to jump, her immediate answer would be: “How high and how far ?”
If it existed, when would she be granted her sixth star?

Tucked away high above Somerset West this is possibly the loveliest self catering base that we have ever found. The location is perfect set within the Eco reserve with wide open vistas and the sounds of abundant bird life all around. The apartment is brilliantly presented with super comfy sofas, every possible home comfort you can think of and high quality bedding. The pool is a bonus and views of the sunsets absolutely stunning. From this perfect base venturing out is easy with wine tasting, penguins, False Bay, central Cape Town and stunning countryside all within an easy drive.
