About Villa Vista

Villa Vista is an ideal breakaway for those that love style, comfort, tranquillity, wine and golf. The reason to come to Villa Vista is to enjoy stunning views from a magnificent garden filled with bird song, to escape the midday heat while sitting under a lapa and enjoy a swim in a large pool.

Situated in the heart of Somerset West, a delightful village on the foot of the Helderberg Mountains, in a quiet, safe and upmarket neighbourhood close to the winelands, False Bay’s best beaches and the finest golf courses, you will find Villa Vista.

While you are far from the madding crowd you are also in the midst of all the happenings - wine route, main attractions, golf courses, whale watching, restaurants, beaches and easy access to all the main routes.


This is a holiday destination which is family friendly and comprises of two tastefully furnished self catering / B&B apartments with beautiful sea views from the bedrooms, while guests also have peace of mind with secure parking, behind security gates and private entrances to their apartments. The surroundings are tranquil and privacy is enjoyed in a large garden around a swimming pool on the doorstep of both units.
