An amazing garden oasis in Constantia - De Verwaalde Boer is like a home away from home. Excellent accommodation, great facilities and fantastic hosts makes this a destination I will definitely return to. We enjoyed 5 nights in this magical place and found it very central to a host of world class restaurants, forests, beaches and wine estates. Highly recommended... More

Amazing place to stay for a short or longer day close to Cape Town and the Southern Cape vineyards. Ultimate luxury, with swimmingpool, tennis court, spacious rooms and extremely friendly hosts. Don't forget the winecellar!

Two nights after our wedding. Stunning location, beautiful room (free upgrade). Hosts on hand and incredibly helpful. Made to feel very welcome and just wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!

From the moment we arrived, we were 'wow-ed'! What a fantastic property with an amazing view. 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

We spent nearly three weeks in this beautiful guesthouse set in immaculately maintained, landscaped and spacious grounds. 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
