It is very quiet with private driveway to the property. Melissa on hand if needed. The three dogs were very friendly but not intrusive. Hope to come back soon.

Due to the age of the building the house layout is what you might call quirky and has an eclectic range of furniture. There's only one bedroom and so not sure the house would be suitable for more than one couple. There are supermarkets/pubs/fast food joints within a short distance, although I wouldn't recommend walking after dark (nothing against the area - more SA in particular). Colleen and John were always available if we had any questions and the only real issue we had was internet access, as coming form the UK we'd assumed unlimited access was standard. If you don't have your own data package then you need to let Colleen know in advance so she can set it up for you - and then you only get 1gb free which we found insufficient for our 4 nights. Apologies for just going on about the internet but these days it's just accepted everywhere has full and free accesss. You can see table mountain from the front veranda and everywhere in the Cape Town area is easily accessible from the house but obviously you do need a car.

On our arrival, we were greeted by Dennis who gave us a tour of the house and provided us with all the information we needed to ensure we had a safe and comfortable stay. The house itself is amazing, and we didn’t want for anything. We spent most of our time at the house around the pool and in the entertainment area. The kitchen is very well equipped, although most of our cooking was done outside in the braai area. The beds are all very comfortable and the bed linen was changed regularly by the hardworking and attentive staff. We visited the Groot Constantia Vineyard several times and also enjoyed taking walks to the bars and restaurants a short walk away. The Constantia Village is nearby with a Woolworths Food, Pick n Pay, Clicks, etc. Constantia itself is very central and within easy access to the amazing attractions Cape Town has to offer. I would like to give a special mention to Magdalena, our lovely housekeeper. She worked very hard making sure the house was kept clean, bed linen changed and she always had a smile on her face. She is so warm and friendly and I really enjoyed our chats in the kitchen. She always made me laugh and I grew very fond of her. It was very hard to leave the beautiful villa on our return to the UK and I miss Cape Town terribly. We are already planning our next trip and will certainly try to stay at the Groot Constantia Villa again in the future.
