A warm welcome to Somerset Villa Guesthouse in Somerset West. Privacy is the greatest luxury at The Somerset West Villa Guest House. This 4200 m² property is one of the original buildings in the Somerset West area, with the main Casa Sereno house being built in 1923.

Discreetly hidden from public view is this tranquil oasis offering only ten, but exquisite large luxury rooms for the discerning guest who values great comfort and out-standing hospitality. Most rooms have a separate, exterior entrance and a private terrace with garden-furniture. The rooms are beautifully decorated, walls are painted with neutral tones, a personal touch makes this place an "oasis of peace and tranquility". Beautiful renovations to the original manor managed to ensure the original Colonial Cape Dutch style would not be lost.

Accessories and other luxuries, including the super large swimming pool situated in a lush garden, provides the tranquil setting for a lovely holiday in the heart of the Cape Winelands. While the exterior is an all-rustic Cape Dutch house, the emphasis internally is on style, modernity and function; clean lines, natural materials, modern fittings in bathrooms, and high-quality orthopedic beds. Some rooms offer views of the mountains and/or over the pool area and the garden, and rooms feature private terraces.

Somerset Villa Guesthouse has ten spacious rooms, all of which are en-suite, all with private entrances and wide terraces. The rooms have been elegantly decorated in a modern colonial Cape Dutch style, with great sliding doors affording views of the breathtaking garden, pool and countryside, allowing maximum enjoyment of the great South African weather. Somerset West Villa Guesthouse caters for individual travelers as well as small groups. We also accommodate families with children.
