“A perfect villa in a perfect location.”
Reviewed March 25, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

My husband and I have just spent three weeks in this wonderful villa. It certainly deserves its 5 star rating. The views from the terraces are amazing and we will miss the beautiful Loerie birds who visited every day looking for some banana or grapes to eat. Our hosts Mariana and Andre were so helpful both before and during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the comprehensive information provided about the villa and the area was excellent.
The location is excellent with a variety of good restaurants and a small supermarket a ten minute walk away. We were able to visit many different places where we walked with elephants, spent time with a baby cheetah, walked through massive underground caverns and saw the big five animals on a game drive .
Truly a holiday to remember.

“Livinstone Villa”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The first you see is the ocean from the balconys. The rooms are beautiful decorated with the lovely bathrooms just a step away. We loved the swimming pool and braai. In this place you can relax in style. What a wonderful place to stay in.

“Stupendous holiday home of Luxury ”

I really love going to the Garden Route for a break at least once a year. I'm so happy that I discovered Livingstone Villa. I normaly take my hole kitchen along on a self-catering holiday. But Marianna, the owner...she beat me to it. From your Dolce Gusto machine until your hand blender but even better she has all your basic baking utensils. For a cake, bread or a muffin or 2. There is a very helpful domestic and gardener. They were very helpful with everything. The place is spotlessly clean. For the first time we just ate relax and did absolutely nothing. I did not feel guilty after all the desserts and guilty pleasures because you burn it with all the stairs you need to take to get too the house it self. I couldn't get use to that picture perfect view. The highlight especially the kids...was feeding 3 Loerie birds some chopped banana every morning. My personal pleasure of that holiday home was taking long bubble baths in that very deep and gorgeous bath. I get sad thinking about it. Then the owner Marianna was so sweet and thoughtful of hand delivering a few items we left behind to a family member in the George area. Thank you Marianna I will surely have a holiday home away from Cape Town. Livingstone Villa see you soon.
