This place is absolutely breathtaking. The gardens are well kept, the service is incredible, and the views are magnificent. We were treated to front row seats while watching the weather around table mountain unfold and shift in a theatrical display of pastel colors. The memories are unforgettable, we will definitely be coming back :)

A hidden gem in Constantia. Stunning setting and the most amazing staff. Thanks to Phaadiel and Shanaaz for their friendly hospitality and excellent service. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Constantia.

I spent 5 nights at the Southern Light Country house with Shanaaz and her Italian friend Fabio. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the setting is beautiful. Breakfast times were adjusted to my specification on the different days, my laundry was ironed, good filter coffee in the room, free wifi - a really pleasant stay.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Cape Town and it was very comfortable.

Claudio, the manager there (not his real name apparently, but that's... More
