“The Very Best There Is”
Reviewed 20 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We travelled a lot in the past fifteen years, stayed in good hotels, were happy in various Bed & Breakfast’s but for us the most wonderful experience came last January. To escape the cold weather in Holland, we went to play golf in South Africa for the eight’s time and this time we would try self-catering. From the internet we chose Vrede in Somerset West. Somerset West, because it is ideally situated. Golf courses, beaches, restaurants and wine estates are abundant. Even Cape Town is only 20 minutes by car.
Vrede Self Catering is situated in the secure Boskloof Eco Estate. Choosing this place turned out to be the best thing we could ever have done. All positive reactions we read prior to our arrival could not cover the reality. Maggie and Charles, the hosts, manage to give you the most wonderful feeling of being home away from home. Really nothing is too much and in the unlikely event you have anything extra to desire, it is a done deal almost even before you can mention it. A perfect place to stay: vast apartment, beautiful interior, astonishing views, nice surroundings, perfect service, luxury, warmth........ it has it all!
For sure we will always come back here, when it is cold in Holland.

“A secret treasure!”

Where do we start? We stayed at Vrede as part of a month's visit to the Winelands. We stayed at various types of accommodation, including rather expensive hotels and B&Bs. This was our 4th visit to the area. Vrede far exceeded our expectations and without a doubt provided the best value for money.

We stayed in the Modern Bedsitter, which was beautifully appointed and provided every facility we needed, not to mention spectacular views from our own private patio area!

Our hostess Maggie was wonderful and could not do enough to ensure our comfort and happiness during our 10 day stay.

We were so impressed that we are currently planning a return visit for a much longer period, before too many people discover the secret treasure known as Vrede!

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vrede Self Catering and Maggie is wonderful! She went totally above and beyond during our stay, even placed a bottle of sparkling wine and a chocolate cake in the apartment when she heard it was my birthday! The accommodation is clean, spacious and all the furnishings are of a high quality. The apartment is also very child friendly and everything you could possibly need is provided. I can highly recommend Vrede Self Catering.
