We spent the first 2 nights of our South African jaunt here just to relax and recharge the batteries and we certainly did that! We stayed in the Hout Bay suite and enjoyed a soak in our Dutch hot tub on the first afternoon... More

The location in Upper Constantia is so peaceful and secure - one of the most sought after areas of the village. Architecturally a most attractive Dutch thatched Cape-style manor house built in 2008, the interior is furnished to the highest standard with a... More

This perfectly located private guesthouse is just one of those places you would rather like to keep to yourself... Located in beautiful and lush Constantia, you overlook Cape Town on one side (especially amazing at night), while having the mountain range on the other side. With many fantastic wine estates on your doorstep, great restaurants within a few minutes drive,... More
