The Tarragon is a rather unusual vacation experience. The setting is spectacular -- right at the base of Table Mountain in a very affluent community. The properties around it are obviously owned by very well off people. The Tarragon itself is a spectacular property that is very secure. The rooms are actually fully equipped apartments, with a bedroom, living room, kitchen, eating area and very nice bath. The grounds are immaculate and have a very nice pool. Transportation can be limited, so you are best advised to either rent a car, or use the driver that the proprietor recommends. His name is Wise, and he speaks perfect English and is a true gentleman. Wise took us everywhere: the waterfront, the Botanical gardens, a winery, even around the Cape of Good Hope. He is a true gem.
The one thing I would recommend, if you don't have a car, is bring a backpack. There is a grocery store that is about a 25 minute walk, but the return is all uphill.
I would definitely come again!
