Gorgeous, quaint B&B in the heart of Sea Point very close to shops and promenade by the sea. The owners are very helpful and knowledgeable and go out of their way to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. There are a range of different room configurations available for different needs and all basic essentials are provided.

I stayed 8 nights at the Villa Rosa in peak season. The only room available was the "small double room". It was perfectly adequate for me, though might be a bit cramped for 2. Thanks Steven and Greg for the great breakfasts! Spotless and tastefully decorated. One minor suggestion is that the wi-fi in this room could be better.

This establishment has recently been taken over and it is looking beautiful already. If you want sophisticated attention to detail, and unobtrusive personalized attention from the owners, this is THE place to put your head down. The renovated rooms are just gorgeous and each room already boasts beautiful fluffy linen. Breakfast is to die for. The only down-side is that...

Thank you for taking the time for your positive feedback. One of the many renovation projects will be installing double glazed windows in the front. Next time you're back, we hope for you to see many more changes.

The Villa Rosa is a beautiful bouquet hotel close to the heart of Cape Town. The service is impeccable, with hosts Greg and Steven looking after their guests every need. Our stay was rounded off with superb breakfasts every morning. One small complaint was the wi-fi reception. I highly recommend The Villa Rosa.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Villa Rosa and were really very happy there. The hosts Greg and Steven gave us good advice for the stay in Capetown, they are doing their job with great passion. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The breakfast was outstanding !!! Next time in Capetown, we will visit the Villa Rosa again.

My trip to Cape Town was close to perfect and Villa Rosa was a huge part of it. Excellent place to stay, very close to everything and friendly atmosphere and staff.

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.
