We believed two fantastic nights in this place. It is like a dream. First the surround is bringing you into a very privileged surrounding with many over sized villa. De Verdwaalde Boer is at once a property and garden you would always desire combine with well decorated rooms with all top quality furniture with a beautiful view. This place is... More

From the moment we walked in the front door we felt at home ! What a stunning, stunning place. This is the holiday home you would love to have, but simply cannot afford. A seven bedroom villa in Constantia, with peace and tranquility and fantastic views down to the coast. Even better is the excellent immediate service from Petra and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights together with my girlfriend and loved it! A really delicate place with privacy, peace and quiet. As soon as we got in through the doors Petra and Jeroen made us feel like home with their friendliness. They were helpful with everything we asked for and they always had a smile on their face.

There is no better place to stay in style in Cape Town… a secluded oasis set on the heights of Constantia admits vineyards and lush gardens with great views of the area. As soon as we arrived we were mesmerized by the property, its grounds and surroundings. Owners Petra & Jeroen provided a personalized and warm welcome, and a chilled... More

We spent three nights here at the start of our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen anywhere more perfect. The service provided by Petra and Jeroen was fantastic - always on hand to make sure that you had everything that you wanted without being imposing. We were even lucky enough to sample Jeroen's homemade Limoncello. Our room was spacious and stylish,... More

De Verdwaalde Boer is a beautiful property run by a charming Dutch couple. The guest rooms/bathrooms are modern with tasteful African touches. We would have liked a tea tray in our room but Jeroen and Petra were always on hand to provide teas, coffees and soft drinks. The breakfasts were lovely.

Two nights at this beautifully appointed Constantia B&B have spoiled me for sleeping anywhere else. Those Hungarian goose down pillows and great linen were unsurpassed in my experience.

I travel a lot to Cape Town on business and always try to stay in different places to avoid boredom but also to try out the huge array of accommodation available; that may no longer be the case! The 7 bedroom guest house is beautifully decorated, simple but elegant with a quirky twist. The beds are huge, the gardens vast... More

Even though we have stayed at De Verdwaalde Boer for the second time in two years, we still were amazed by the surroundings, the beautiful room and the enormous breakfast.

We've rented places in Tuscany, New Zealand, Paris, Tokyo and this one took the cake. The grounds were massive with the pool, tennis court, outdoor dining & grill, trellis lounge areas, and mini vineyard. The house itself was nicer than any of the pictures on the internet (usually not the case!) - simple, clean lines with African accents. There's a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the outskirts of Cape Town, immediately adjacent to one of the most beautiful wine producing areas of South Africa, you will find De Verdwaalde Boer. This dream villa is located in a unique spot in Constantia, with a view of False Bay and the back of the famous Table Mountain. The villa offers an abundance of luxury, perfect privacy and a wide range of modern facilities. The spacious garden contains not only many trees and a veritable rainbow of indigenous flowers but also an authentic vineyard where Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown. The villa boasts seven bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom, a charming living room, a beautiful kitchen and three fireplaces. The splendid wine cellar is filled with the very best South African wines. Enjoying a real South African barbeque (braai) on the terrace alongside the villa and admiring the constellation-filled sky is one of the most memorable experiences of Africa. In De Verdwaalde Boer you can do this in style and comfort and in an ideal atmosphere. Although you do not sleep in a hotel, nonetheless your bed is made for you each day. This, and much, much more is within easy reach. ... more   less
