“Peaceful and Luxurious”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our stay at Vrede was great. We could not have asked for better service from Maggie and her team. Our apartment was upmarket and very comfortable and all our needs were catered for. The views were absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone who is visiting Somerset West.

“6 Star Luxury apartment”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I was looking for the option with 6 stars, but couldn't find it. No joking though, it was that great. Will probably pay a another visit in the near future again.

We travel often in the country. Vrede self-catering units are the best of the best. My most favorite guest house in South Africa and we will return again and again. Maggie goes out of her way to ensure all needs are met. It rained when we arrived - she even left umbrellas at the entry gate of the estate for every guest. How thoughtful!

“Self-catering Heaven”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

There is nothing to dislike about Vrede. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped with all you need, the apartment is scrupulously clean. Maggie is a very helpful owner who will do anything to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. Prices are reasonable considering the luxurious nature of the property. As for the view: Vrede is perched on a hillside above Somerset West with views to the Indian Ocean, Hottentot Holland mountains and the Cape peninsula. There are several good walks around the estate if you get tired of the view (but you won't!).
