“the Perfect Choice”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We just spent 2 weeks in the lovely, spacious room 8, with its large bedroom, sitting room, kitchenette, modernized bathroom and direct access to the upstairs, sea-facing balcony. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the house itself is charming, with it's combination of old and modern. The security systems in place were unobtrusive, yet made us feel quite secure. There were local plugs in the room for charging our overseas phones and ipad, and the free wifi was great. Breakfasts were delicious, and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. If you want to stay in Sea Point the location is perfect, with the main road, beach road, promenade, restaurants, buses and taxis all just minutes away, Thank you to Lynn, Heather, Papi and all the staff for your hospitality.

Room Tip: The rooms facing High Level Rd get the noise of the traffic, but also get the sun and the view, so i...

Every year we come to vila rosa for 2 weeks to our favorite room # 7.
The staff is very friendly and professional. The breakfast is very satisfying. I even get my preferred yogurt to my table.
The feeling is of a small family.

After a first visit to the Villa Rosa in 2008, we came back in January 2014. And it was perfect again - just what we wanted. Tranquility and character a five minute walk from the Sea Point promenade. The breakfast room was itself a haven before beginning the day, and the staff was always polite and charming. The Villa Rosa can also arrange for you a convenient and well-priced airport transfer. Little more to say except that we will be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice!

We enjoyed the homeliness of Villa Rosa, which has a lot of character, tastefully decorated. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming, and the room was very comfortable. Also conveniently situated, in a pleasant area.

Very nice, comfortable & lovely:
The Breakfast is great
The location is central
The people really nice
The room big enough
And I'm sensitive to the decoration which was gorgeous.
What else to say? You're not gonna regret it if you choose this accomodation.

I stayed 8 nights and enjoyed it immensely. A beautiful house with attractive, and spotless rooms. Managment and staff were all gracious, accomodating, and breakfast was of a high standard. Location is short walk to the wonderful Seapoint promenade as well as Seapoint's Main Street. Many excellent restaurants in walking distance especially The Salzburger, La Perla, La Boheme, and Bella Italia. I plan to stay again at this high quality and reasonably priced house.

Room Tip: I liked Room 6. It is on the quiet side.
