Staying at Heide Cottage provided us with the ideal base for the best vacation experience we’ve had in the seven years of visiting the Cape Town area.
The complete menu of “things to do” was at our doorstep and to top it all off every time we returned we were welcomed into Andy and Melanie’s “feel good” world; two children and four dogs included.
We have already booked for next year!!
Host Family was very nice and helpful. Nice little house and a good Location. My parents had a very good experience staying there.
Somerset West is a great location, close to the beach, mountains and city. Great local shops and restaurants - a great base for exploring Cape Town and the winelands. This cottage is very comfortable with reclining chairs, access to a bbq and a number of TV channels, if you fancy staying in. If not, there are many amazing local places to visit and eat: two of our favourites were Vergelegen for an amazing lunch with unbelievable views (you must book in advance) and Avontuur in the evening.
The hosts were a wealth of knowledge with regards to places to go and local history, you will not be disappointed staying here!
A beautiful peaceful property. Light airy spacious well equipped , spectacular gardens. The hosts are very helpful and kind with suggestions and local knowledge. We felt very lucky to have found such a perfect spot for our family !
