We absolutely loved our stay at the Villa Sella Maris. The accommodation was very homey and quaint and it was a beautiful setting. The location was perfect to do all the cool tourist stuff, table mountain, lions head, the VA Waterfront, Camps Bay, everything was so close as well as having a great view of the ocean. The staff were so helpful, anytime we needed directions Dirk was there to help us out and point us in the right direction, not to mention the breakfast was delicious! We would absolutely stay there again as it was a wonderful experience!

Dirk does a great job of helping you feel at home and comfortable! Great views of the ocean. Quiet area of the city. Great location for walking the ocean front. We would stay there if we ever return to Cape Town in the future.

The host Dirk and his staff made us feel really welcome when we arrived, and given that we only had a short time in the area, helped out with our travel and accommodation arrangements. The location as really convenient for the centre but in a quite part of town. The room was spacious, with a great view of the sea, and the big breakfast was tasty. Recommended!

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the sea if you can.

We arrived at Villa Stella Maris, to the most warm welcome by our hosts, Dirk and Vaughan, We had the most relaxed wonderful stay, in Peak Season, December. Breakfasts were delicious, and the location for us most convenient and central. The room we stayed in , was spacious and most comfortable. The views are amazing. The pool area amazing. We can't wait to book our next trip to Cape Town and it will be without a doubt at Villa Stella Maris.

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect, depends on what works for you.....

On arriving at Villa Stella Maris , we immediately felt at home. with a warm welcome and a feeling of comfort we settled in. What makes this lodge is not only top class accommodation , but a view to die for. What makes Villa Stella Maris even more comforting is the Welcome and hospitality we received from the hosts. They went out of their way to make you feel at home away from home. we have found our home away from home , and will never again choose another destination. Try it to believe it. Dale Swanepoel

Arrived to a very warm welcome. The room was the best I have stayed in since being in South Africa for 4 months, the bed was to die for I slept like a baby, I have now changed all my travel plans to use this guest house when ever in Cape Town a place not to be missed for sure.

I should really keep it a secret so I will have a room when i require it. forget your big fancy expensive hotels, this place is a true secret gem of Cape Town, The hosts are something else,in the level of Hospitality & service. A small business that serves it's cutomers in the old style, excellent company for social chat & drink look forward to seeing them again soon.
