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.

Verified reviewexcellent

Villa Vista was the perfect accommodation choice for our trip to Somerset West. It is in a peaceful and stunning location set high in the suburbs overlooking the Strand with sea views in the distance. With a hire car at our disposal we were only 2 minutes from the shops and 5 minutes from Somerset West town and had excellent secure parking at the apartment. We stayed in the larger of the 2 apartments which is vast and fully equipped for self catering. Elise and Jake were in the background but available at a moment's notice by phone call no matter where you were and were ably supported by Betty (room servicing) and Jessie's (border collie) regular visits. We will be returning to Villa Vista on all future visits to Somerset West and have no hesitation in recommending this jewel in the suburbs.

Villa Vista Excellent A* and perfect - the accommodation was fantastic both inside and outside - everything had been considered and catered for. The home is stunning and the gardens a delight, as a family we had a lot of fun at Villa Vista and felt safe and welcomed the whole of the time. Dianne Parkin, United Kingdom 08 December 2010
