Great location to be in Cape Town

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 months at this cottage. Fantastic location. Free of traffic noise and excellent access to shopping, restaurants & major highways. The outdoor area was private with beautiful gardens. Really loved the outdoor patio area. The cottage was well appointed with an excellent kitchen. Melissa went out of her way to ensure our comfort. Definitely would stay here again.

Delightful oasis

What a pleasure to spend time at the cottage. The most wonderfully private garden, we enjoyed our month here very much and plan to return next year. Constantia is a very convenient location to explore from. All in all a very happy and successful trip.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect at the cottage, what an amazing place to stay! We enjoyed being able to walk through the vineyard to enjoy dinner and wine tasting. Melissa was an incredible host, we couldn't recommend the cottage more.

Had very enjoyable chill out time at the cottage. Well equipped and comfortable. 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.

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.
