Lovely BB with great views of False Bay, wonderful peaceful setting with very friendly hosts. Great breakfast. The one single bed was a bit squeaky and needs replacing, the bathroom also needs the shower to be sorted out but the accommodation is great value for money and I would book again.

We spent our 2nd 3-weeks-stay in Huis Waveren and were very pleased again. The Suite was comfortable and very clean, the view from the patio is overwhelming, the breakfast is great and Susan and Willem are really wonderful hosts. Huis Waveren is a "holiday home" in the best sense of this word.

Somerset West is perfectly located to explorer the area. The guesthouse is located in a quite district on the hill. The rooms are very clean. The beds are very comfortable. We had a private balcony/terrace with a great view on the coast line. The hosts are very very friendly! We enjoyed our stay a lot!
