It was a magnificent 2 weeks in Cape Town and at Athol Childs Le Bonheur. Friendly staff and fantastic setting and great facilities. Was fantastic to say the least.
I really lucked out when I found this place! It's in the perfect location for us (just around the corner from my brother and family's home for when we visit from the US), in a gorgeous, safe neighborhood, and is super spacious and comfortable. Athol and his staff were very helpful with everything we needed! We couldn't ask for a more perfect place to stay when we visit and will definitely be back!!!
We loved this spot in the heart of Constantia - central, impeccably maintained, luxury with friendly staff and owner who all went the extra mile to make us feel at home (complete with the occasional visit from Stretch the dog, who my kids adored). The accommodation has all you can think of - it's aestehtically well done, has great green tech (water & electricity), and has great wheel chair accessibility. Well done to Le Bonheur for nailing it!
Excellent base to explore beautiful Cape Town & surrounding area. Joined my sister who was staying in Lime Cottage - first class 2-bed accommodation set in a complex with pool, sun terrace, secure parking, BBQ. Athol was delightful & on hand to help (but not intrusive at all). Visit to Boulders Beach a must. Fantastic week thank you Athol!
Lime Cottage is ideally located if you are planning to visit the Cape. It has been fitted out to a high standard and throughout our 2 week stay we have always felt secure. The pool is of a high standard, the only small issue being that you have to walk through the side of the other cottages to get to it. The owner, Athol, is always on hand to deal with any minor issues, as well as to provide advice on restaurants etc. This is our 4th trip to Cape Town and we have always stayed in Constantia. In the past we have stayed at another residence, but will use Lime Cottage in the future as it does provide good value for money.
Comfortable home from home, close to all amenities, friendly staff, clean, spacious, better than what we were expecting
We already stayed our 2nd time at Athols (and this will be definitely not our last one), everything was perfect. We like the open living room and the well-equipped kitchen, everything is like on the pictures.
As we often come in Winter (during European summer Holidays) we unfortunately could not use the nicely looking swimming pool.
Athol is a really nice host, always reachable if something is needed. Thanks for everything!
Constantia Village is just a few minutes by car away where you can both fill your fridge or also do some shopping and visiting some coffees - we recommend Tasha's Café, really great!
Make sure that you don't miss Kirstenbosch, the largest and greatest botanical garden in Africa - this is also quite close to LeBonheur.
