“Lovely place with beautiful views across false bay”
Reviewed 28 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Stayed there in early may for my wife's birthday for three nights.
Furnishings were of a high standard, the view from the patio was fabulous.
There were one or two minor issues that we found irritating but that did not
detract from the overall stay.

“The BEST Self-Catering ever — don't miss this one!”
Reviewed 4 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Stayed 10 days (would like to have stayed longer) in the 'Superb' apartment with private pool and views to The Strand and False Bay.
Maggie and her staff were immediately like long lost friends — almost family, offering sensible and honest advice to make our stay enjoyable, right down to recommending an excellent, not expensive, everyday type wine to sip for our sunset cocktails — even though we had never met before!
The setting is just so beautiful and serene — and secure, in a gated community. The bird life and little gazelles, weasels (?) and THE SUNSETS! WOW! My partner and I have been avid travellers together for over 43 years, and this is truly the BEST, most luxurious and pleasant self-catering place we've ever stayed!
Please respect what is offered - don't look at this as a place to party... it's a place to unwind, meditate, and relax. in its comfort and serenity (but don't forget, it's self-catering with cleaning services M-F, and a quick response from Maggie or William just a text-message or email away, at other times).
The LOCATION! Probably essential to have a car (supplies from supermarket are 5 minutes DRIVE down the hill - have to be fit and keen to do that trek walking, lugging groceries back). But it is so comfortably central for so many easy day or half-day trips: wineries, coastal drives, the beach, shopping malls (good supermarkets - 5 minutes drive), Cape Town, Table Mountain, Simon's Town, the airport, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens... the list goes on. Just make sure you're back in time to catch the sunsets from the apartment! Recommend a minimum stay of a week. Games, books, satellite TV, best equipped kitchen we've ever had in a rental accom.

“Good, incredebly GOOD, maybe even THE BEST?”
Reviewed 20 March 2018 for a stay in December 2017

This was the umptiest time we stayed at 'Vrede Self Catering' in Somerset West. Again for three months. "Why always to the same place?" That is what friends sometimes ask us. Simply, for us this is the best place we found to spend our vacation, anywhere in the world. We are afraid that changing venue, we would not find similar and great circumstances and surroundings as here. And that would make us feel very sad, because we would realize what we were missing. 'With Maggie, it is always more than perfect.' Maggie being the owner and your host, a host that is always there for you. Host with a capital H. And really, everything is truly perfect. The very spacious house, the nice and well thought out way it is furnished. Be it the living room, bedroom or huge kitchen. And last but not least: the view from our own deck. Overlooking Strand below you and in the distance False Bay and Cape Point. Nothing hindering that great view. Every evening a beautiful sunset right in front of you, while enjoying something to drink. And, 'Vrede' is pleasantly situated in the centre of lots and lots of great golf courses, restaurants and wine estates. Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are 'around the corner'. Cape Town airport is only 20 minutes away. The house itself is kept in an immaculate state by a dedicated staff while you are there. A staff that was trained by Maggie herself, so you can be assured that everything you could possibly ask for, will be arranged in no time. 'Vrede Self Catering', for us it will always be our 'Home away from Home', or as found in our car navigation: 'Home Too'.

“Home sweat Home”
Reviewed 19 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

From the first moment it feels like home.
It is spacious, complete and warmly decorated. The view is amazing.
The location is very central between Capetown and the world famous wine estates and restaurants. The service is perfect and friendly.
In short an ideal location that you should not skip.
