This is a beautiful mansion converted to a b & b. Very tastefully decorated. The staff was extremely eager to please. Great breakfasts. Very helpful with sites and arranging drivers for us. They couldn't stop trying to accommodate our needs. Spacious rooms and great location in a residential area 2 blocks from beach.

My friend and I arrived after midnight and we're met but the friendly security guard of Villa Rosa. After opening up our door of the room we did a short "happy dance" as we really had a large room with many windows and spacious bathroom. As we did not see a thing when we arrived (midnight) the next morning brought... More

I travel a fair amount for business and always prefer the more personal experience of a B&B environment. Steve and Greg run a stunning B&B of 5 Star quality. This quality is reflected firstly in the way they deal with their guests and is reinforced by the huge rooms, the generous supply of fluffy white towels comfortable beds and crisp... More

Loved staying here. Warm welcome, spacious, spotlessly clean room, really comfortable beds, quality linen, delicious breakfasts. Greg and Steven were really helpful hosts, making sure guests were well looked after throughout. Great attention to detail. Always felt safe and secure here. Excellent location in Sea Point, close to restaurants, bus routes and short distance to the seafront. Spent two weeks... More

The Villa Rosa was a perfect landing spot for myself and my mother. Not centrally located in Cape Town, we were able to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the quieter neighborhood. Breakfast was great! Room was even better! Absolutely loved staying here, felt safe and welcome at all times.

Villa Rosa is a charming guesthouse which is warm and welcomong. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Easy access to all the trendy Sea Point Restuarants. The breakfast spread is definitely worth another visit. Would definitely recommend this B & B.
