Somerset View Guest House is the product of a vision that there are some places that create simply magical and truly homey experiences. Our goal is to not only provide accommodation; it is to provide an experience that truly makes our guests feel like they are home away from home.
The birth of the guest house started with the purchase of a spacious house in the upmarket suburb of Heldervue in Somerset West, Western Cape, South Africa. Carl & Emsie already had a detailed plan of what they wanted the finished building to look like.
The very existence of Somerset View Guest House must be credited to two very special and inspired people: Brian & Jenny Lee. Having seen the need for accommodation that is more like home than anything before it, they have been instrumental in providing the resources to meet that need. Deeply involved in the fine details of the planning, building and management of the new venture that is Somerset View, Brian & Jenny are determined to provide guests with an exceptional experience that is so much more than what money can buy.
