“Outstanding homely hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

We stayed for 3 nights in early December 2012. Jurie and Lisa who own and run Villa Vista will give you a wonderful welcome and help you with knowledgable tit bits about the interesting local area. Nothing is too much trouble and they really care and want to make your stay special. It was like leaving home when it came to say goodbye.
Villa Vista is perched high above the town and commands excellent views across the bay. We were greeted by whales on arrival creating huge splashes in the bay, you will need your binoculars at the ready for a closer look. Lovely modern artwork adorns the dining room walls.
The breakfast is superb, extremely fresh, continental or English and cooked to order. Wonderful. Villa Vista is not trying to compete in the luxury stakes but if you want genuine hospitality, you would find it difficult to beat.

Seven years ago we stayed 2 night with Jurie & Lisa and it was great. In October we stayed again 1 night and it was even better. Great hospitality, very comfortable rooms (and spacious) and last but not least we had a fantastic (en gezellige) Braai with them.

If you go to Port Alfred, stay in Villa Vista. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Myself and 3 of my friends (Nellie Buitendag, Danie and Irma Luwes) had the pleasure of staying at Villa Vista and meeting Jurie and Ilze in September 2012. I have been traveling a lot in my time and stayed at many great places but the hospitality at Villa Vista will make me go back there any day! Thank you Jurie and Ilze for a lovely stay, it felt like home away from home. Jurie you are a gem and we thoroughly enjoyed the way you were always ready to give us information and sharing the stories of the lovely items in your house. I would highly recommend a stay at Villa Vista if you are looking for accommodation in Port Alfred area. Keep well and keep up the good work.
Best regards
Amanda Perks

Villa Vista is a beautiful little guest house on the hill - great views, a fantastic welcome from Jurie who is more than happy to do anything for you. The rooms are all beautifully laid out, well equipped and clean. The welcome is so friendly it is like a home away from home, and the food is fantastic, especially when eaten in the "outdoor dining room". Sitting by the outside fire, having a drink under the stars was a beautiful way to relax.

This was my third stay and will certainly not be my last. Jurie and Lisa canot do enough for you. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the view is magnificent and the cuisine is as good as you will experience anywhere in the world.I can recommend the room with the outdoor shower. If you want to spend a good evening ask them to light the outdoor fire and just relax under the stars and enjoy a drink.

Room Tip: Choose the outdoor shower room

We loved everything about our stay in Villa Vista. The room is huge and nicely decorated, the bathroom is nice and we even had a (hot) outside shower. Breakfast is nice, the wifi works, the views are lovely and the owner is very very friendly.
