2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3 with views of the mountain.

Our lovely spacious cottage boasts its own private driveway and has a large sitting room, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with a four poster bed and a full en-suite bathroom (with a bath and separate shower). Another room adjacent to the bedroom contains a single bed and wardrobe. A private patio has views of the lush gardens and mountains. An access gate across the road takes you straight into Groot Constantia vineyard, where you can walk through the vines for a spot of winetasting or sample one of the two superb restaurants on the estate.

Michael and Sandra were suitably impressed

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a secluded part of the garden of the larger house lived in by the landlady, and is approached via a separate driveway which has a secure gate. It offers good privacy. Melissa was extremely helpful and also completely respectful of our privacy. She brought us chilled wine on our arrival. There are 3 very friendly dogs which only occasionally wandered near the cottage, and were quiet and no problem whatsoever.

The cottage and garden were delightful, and we enjoyed spending time here relaxing, and not feeling we needed to be out all of the time.

The Constantia area is very nice has a safe feel. The cottage feels secure.

The Groot Constantia vineyard is right on the doorstep and is an excellent half day visit (that's whether or not you want to taste the excellent wines). Kirstenbosch is also very close by and is a definite must visit.

Very happy to recommend this accommodation to others.

What's not to love! FIVE STARS ALL AROUND!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you find yourself heading to Cape Town and want to stay close to the city yet in a setting that is just simply perfect and idyllic, then look no further than this cottage in the heart of Constantia. Firstly, Melissa is just the greatest. So kind and welcoming, and a laugh as well! You feel like one of the family. The cottage is perfect for one or two people. I was on my own and had ample room and then some. Having a full kitchen and a washer and dryer, own private entrance and secured parking are all bonuses when you add the location to the mix. Everything is so close, and you can even walk to a number of the excellent wine estates, with one just literally being across the street. I will be heading back to Cape Town very soon and will be sure to rebook with Melissa at her fantastic cottage.

perfect

  • 5 of 5

Dear Melissa,

Thank you for having me the past week. The clean and fully equipped cottage really took my mind away for a couple of days. The walks through the beautiful vine yards and the dogs waking me up in the morning highlighted the days.

The cottage is a place to retreat and when the absolute silence strikes your family provides the buzz.

Regards to the family

Wine Lovers Dream Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning location with magnificent Vineyard and mountain views. Beautifully decorated, very intimate cottage.

The Cottage was perfectly situated for us to make the most of the local wine farms as well as Kirstenbosch gardens close by.

Enjoying the friendly hospitality of Melissa, who hosted us and ensured we had everything we needed. She also helpfully pointed us to the local restaurants and must do activities nearby.

Thanks so much for the wonderful stay, Looking forward to returning soon.
