About BARRY EDKINS

Your Hosts @ ASCOT GARDENS - Barry and Lesley Edkins,

8 Eksteen Avenue, Bergvliet

Born in the Baby Boomer decade (post 2nd World War) both hosts are originally from Johannesburg where they completed their schooling.

A shipboard romance on the Cape Town Castle when sailing from Cape Town to England in 1967 led to the couple marrying in 1969 and settling down first in Durban until 1972 and from where they then spent 5 years in Zimbabwe, living in both Bulawayo and Harare.

Since the closure of Barrys clothing factory in October 2005, Barry has been marketing and managing ASCOT GARDENS.

At ASCOT GARDENS, Barry is responsible for marketing, reservations, payments and maintenance;and for ensuring that the money trees continually bear fruit which then enables Lesley to present our guests with immaculate and stunning gardens throughout the year, and accommodation considered the best value for money self catering accommodation in the Constantia Valley

We live on the property in our own private corner house and from there manage the 1 acre property consisting of the 12 different sized ASCOT GARDENS SELF CATERING garden suites .

Ascot Gardens often has open days to show off our lovely gardens , and the money raised is donated to worthy charities .

BARRY EDKINS purchased this villa in 1996

Why BARRY EDKINS chose Southern Suburbs & Constantia Valley

Barry’s work in the Clothing Industry led to a move from Zimbabwe to Cape Town in 1977 and the purchase of the original ASCOT HOUSE , 6 EKSTEEN AVENUE, BERGVLIET in 1979.

In 1996, when their 3 children Grant , Scott and Angie finally left home , Ascot House was subdivided into 3 separate private self catering suites and the ASCOT GARDENS self catering venture was born.

In 2001 , a property at the back of Ascot House was purchased and rebuilt and opened for guests in December 2001 as ASCOT LODGE , 17 JEFFCOAT AVENUE , also offering 3 private self catering suites.

NOVEMBER 2004 marked the opening of another adjoining property ASCOT VILLA , 30 HIDDINGH ROAD , a luxury entire private House/Villa that sleeps 11-14 or can also be booked as 3 separate private self catering suites for different families .

ASCOT MEWS, 28 HIDDINGH ROAD, was opened to guests in July 2005. Conversion of single house to 3 private self catering suites was completed and offers guests s/c accommodation for up to 10 guests.

All of our units have been refurbished in both 2014 and 2015 and furnishings are continuously being updated .The gardens and property are very well maintained

Our annual 3 Star Grading award ensures that our accommodation is of an international standard . Last successful inspection was in October 2015

What makes this villa unique

Barry is a keen golfer , and also a partner with son Scott , in Ascot Tours , a company specializing in Golf Tours , hotel accommodation , safaris , car hire and travel throughout Southern Africa.

Barry enjoys drinking good red wine , and his occasional over indulgence has often spoiled a good Thai or fish barbeque meal that he has prepared for his invited friends or ASCOT GARDENS guests.

Lesley , Michael the gardener , Mary and Sheila the cleaning maids , Albert the maintenance man , all ensure that ASCOT GARDENS is always looking good , clean and colorful for our many international guests that often return and stay with us for 3 weeks to 3 month each year during our summer months of November to end March .

Barry loves to pass on local information of where to eat , shop and visit local attractions. He can recommend some good value deals offered by local restaurants , and provide a daily weather prediction ( mostly incorrectly ! )

Wedding party

  • 5 of 5

Booked 7 villas for three weeks as base for our wedding party.Thrilled with quality of accomodation,security,flexibility(arranging a wedding from oversease was tricky), and welcolm from Barry and Lesley.Every effort made to accomodate our requests. Good for allowing young children freedom of property without worrying, all hazards enclosed.Barry runs a tight ship but everything runs like clockwork. Will deffinately be returning to stay soon.

Owner's Response: This family wedding group consisted of 24 persons, including the Bride and Groom, their parents, family relations, friends as well as children and a baby. They occupied the complete ASCOT VILLA , which sleeps up to 12 persons ,and also rented other suites on the ASCOT GARDENS property. Their different arrival and departure times were as per their individual travel circumstances . The diffferent sized and also sleeping options of the ASCOT GARDENS suites , plus with the the cost per night being charged per suite and not per person, ensured that guests enjoyed "Great Value for Money Paid " Guests were able to enjoy the privacy of their own suite if required and also participate in the many group get togethers and BBQS ,both before and after the wedding day . ASCOT VILLA AND ASCOT GARDENS SELF CATERING SUITES are an ideal base close to Cape Town, for wedding groups,large groups traveling together, sports tours or events or family reunions.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Ascot Gardens was within a party of 9 people all of whom were impressed by the surroundings, location,cleanliness, security and the convenience of local amenities. In our experience a car would be desirable as some of the attractions would be only accessed by road. No visit to Cape Town would be complete without a visit to Table Mountain, but make sure you select a clear day. Also if time allows, a visit to the Acquilla safari park would be a 'must do'. There are discounts available from The Waterfront in Cape Town. My party are in no doubt that we should be in the vicinity again, Ascot Gardens would be the desired accomodation

Great place to stay for in Bergvliet

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this property to others. The layout was efficient and well planned. Facilities were good - lovely cool pool, internet available (which was a bit slow, but I suppose I am used to the speed of cable), and beautiful gardens which were so peaceful. Flatlets were clean, well appointed and comfortably furnished, with all amenities. We felt quite safe and relaxed, with the secure perimeter and secure parking. Our hosts, Barry and Lesley provided great service. It really was a home from home.
