The tarragon is superb place to stay even in the SA winter. I first visited many moons ago and loved it then. Loved it so much I always wanted to return but was a bit apprehensive about whether or not it would match my expectations as so often a return visits never lives up to the magic of the first... More

The Tarragon is not only set in magnificent surrounds but the cottages themselves are beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. Its like a home away from home. We stayed in the Ivy Cottage and we couldn't have asked for anything more. With two King bedrooms both ensuite with beautiful slate bathrooms, a fully fitted kitchen and a lovely... More

This is a beautifully presented large and very secure self catering lodge. Perfect distance to the centre of Cape Town - easy to get to, but peace & quiet when you want to relax. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for Mark. He knows Cape Town well and is very happy to advise places to visit... More

Absolutely gorgeous place to stay. Friendly and efficient staff. Fantastic facilities, really beautiful room with everything you could need, pool with braii option. Also a beautiful kids playground and double hammock for lazing in. Spectacular views. A haven away from it all but near enough to everything if you want to go exploring. Obliging Taxi facilities from Wise to all... More

Our first family trip to Cape Town and The Tarragon was the prefect place to spend our first week. Beautiful location. Garden and pool very relaxing. Easy to get to everywhere we wanted to go around the City and the Peninsular. Very friendly and helpful service from Mark and his staff - he even booked us tickets for the open-air... More

Beautiful setting, the perfect place to arrive on your first day. Nicely furnished cottage and well equipped (including a good selection of DVDs). Great garden and pool. It almost seemed a shame to be out and about sometimes. Mark very welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended, can't fault it.

This was our 2nd stay at The Tarragon (Silverweed and then Ivy) - we can't recommend the properties enough! The location is perfect for exploring Cape Town, Constantia, Cape Point, Hout Bay, Nordhoek, Chapmans Peak etc. Hout Bay itself is a great place to be based - lovely beach, great restaurants, World of Birds on the doorstep and easy to...

Very nice place to stay, rooms are great and very clean. The staff is charming. They have a superb swimming pool and an amazing garden. Very quiet and super safe. We travel with three kids and they really loved it. We can only recommend this lovely place.

We had the most wonderful experience with our stay at The Taragon. We went there hoping we had chosen a nice location and we came away with a wow feeling.
