“Stunning home away from home”

We spent a lovely two night stay at Alfie's cottage, which in terms of location, could not be better. It is a 5 minute walk from a magnificent national park and a 5 minute drive from Vergelegen wine farm, both which are well worth a viisit. The owners made us feel completely at home and the cottage was kitted out with everything we could need. The cottage was so peaceful and with such lovely views that we wished we could have stayed longer,. I am happy to give this cottage and excellent recommendation. We will be back

“Clean, comfortable and caring”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This charming self catering bed and breakfast accommodation is in the heart of Somerset West nestled in the Helderberg mountains. It is in close proximity to the Helderberg Nature reserve and is situated within easy access to Shopping Mall's, the beach, scenic pass and coastline drives. It is only 45 minutes from the centre of Cape Town. The accommodation is exceptionally clean and is ever so comfortable. "Just loved the personal touch of wrapped nougat on the pillow on arrival". Don't miss out on this one. Well done Jen.

“Comfortable and friendly”
Reviewed 1 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

What a beautiful cottage! Perfectly located between wine farms and the nature reserve, the owners have done everything to make you feel at home in this little spot! We were tired and weary cyclists and it was very difficult to leave the home comforts and get back on our bikes. The owners were ultra-accommodating and helpful, a really great place to spend your holiday!
