“beautiful!”
Reviewed August 26, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Amidst beautiful green surroundings, in the middle of a very nice garden with swimming pool. 20 minutes driving from the Cape Town city centre.
Shopping mall nearby.
Excellent restaurants in the beautiful Constantia wine estates in the neighbourhood.
Nice and comfortable cottage, well kept, with (last but not least) a lovely porch like terrace.

Alison and myself were greeted by Mary and her team to be shown a lovely well equipped cottage with a fabulous sunny balcony with views over the garden to Table Mountain . The location was superb being walking distance from 3 wineries and close to Constantia Village . The large pool was very welcome for an afternoon dip . We had such a great time we have booked to go back in 2019.

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed August 21, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We rented the garden cottage for a two week stay in Constantia. The cottage if fully equipped with very luxurious linens and the kitchen has absolutely everything you need. Mary greeted us on our arrival and very kindly provided bread, muffins, fruit, juices and wine - much more than is usually provided in rental accommodation. The cottage is in a gorgeous setting and very close to Constantia village shopping centre which provides for all your needs. We enjoyed it so much, that we booked immediately to return in 2019.

“Peaceful and private garden cottage.”
Reviewed August 21, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

My daughter and I stayed in Mary's lovely garden cottage for 10 days in March and we loved every minute of our time there. The cottage is spacious, comfortably furnished and quiet. We loved having our own patio from which we had a wonderful sighting of owls one morning. The cottage overlooks Mary's pretty garden and has a view of the Constantiaberg mountains. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

“Beautiful, Comfortable & Spotless Cottage”
Reviewed August 16, 2018 for a stay in July 2017

Myself, my partner and our baby stayed at Mary's gorgeous cottage for three months in 2017 over the winter period. The cottage is fully equipped with beautiful crockery, linens and furniture and is perfect for a stay in Cape Town. There is a shopping centre, banks and of course amazing wineries nearby so it's a great location for exploring the Constantia Valley as well as the whole of Cape Town. The cottage is safe and secure and the terrace outside is a great place to enjoy lunch in the sunshine or a sunset glass of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and Mary and her husband are kind, caring and courteous hosts who go the extra mile for their guests.

“Lovely garden cottage in upmarket Constantia.”
Reviewed May 6, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

people found this review helpful

We rented this perfectly situated garden cottage for a week's stay in Cape Town. It's in leafy Constantia, close to the M3 and the upmarket Constantia Shopping Centre. It takes about 20 minutes travel to most attractions in Cape Town (this doesn't apply during peak traffic times). It was a quiet oasis to return to after our busy days sightseeing, I especially enjoyed relaxing on the patio which looks onto a small private garden. The cottage has two spacious bedrooms, the main en-suite has a super comfortable king size bed and the second bedroom a double bed, also with en-suite bathroom, both with showers. Top quality linen, bath towels and luxurious gowns were provided. The lounge and main bedroom have big screen tvs with full DSTV and WiFi. There are ceiling fans in the lounge & main bedroom.The kitchen has everything you need (and more) including a full size fridge and washing machine. Mary our gracious hostess greeted us personally on arrival and took us through everything. She very kindly supplied milk, juice, croissants, biscuits and fresh fruit - which was very much appreciated after our long trip to get there. We felt very much at home during our stay and I highly recommend Garden Cottage Constantia.
