“An amazing place!”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I'd been corresponding with Dennis, the owner of the property, for about 9 months and found him extremely helpful and quick with his replies. That's always a great start.
When we arrived we were all bowled over by the attention to detail of Dennis and his wonderful staff who run the house. They couldn't do enough to help us with anything we needed but also leaving us to enjoy the house in peace.
What can I say about the house ... it's stunning and is, in my opinion, in the best location possible. Where else are you given a key to let yourself into the vineyards of the oldest wine estate in the country? Here you can walk through the vines for wine tasting and wonderful restaurants.
The pool, the garden, the braai area where all fantastic and the interior of the house was very spacious, light and bright.
The security was first class and we all felt completely safe and secure there.
Dennis and Elizabeth, thanks you so much for making such a wonderful base for us while on our Cape Town adventure! If you can book this house, don't hesitate. We will be back :-)

“Lovely villa in a great location”
Reviewed December 6, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

There were 7 of us staying at the villa and there was plenty of room for so many more. It was beautiful and so clean and well looked after by all of the charming, helpful and amazing staff. Dennis, the owner was helpful too, and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We spent most of our time outside however, enjoying the pool and braai area and drinking in the magnificent views of the mountains. Obviously, the villa is situated in the famous Groot Constantia vineyards, but the location is so much more than this. Close to Cape Town, to beaches, great shopping, great food, penguins, birds, wildlife, wonderful walks, beautiful national parks, more penguins (we love penguins). The location is very quiet too and we felt so safe and well looked after. Highly recommended!

“Perfect stay in wonderful villa”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in the Groot Constantia Villa for a week with 8 adults and one toddler. The villa was perfect for us: it had everything we could wish with excellent facilities (including a private pool, sunbeds, bbq, wifi) and is situated in a beautiful area right next to the Great Constantia wineries. The house is very large and luxurious (easily sleeps 10 adults), and cleaned daily by the friendly staff. Dennis (the owner) gave us a lot of tips and was very helpful. When we said we were bringing a 1 year old he bought a cot and toddler dining chair.
We highly recommend this villa!

“All you could wish for”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here for seven nights. We were warmly welcomed by Dennis and introduced to Magdalena and the other staff, were shown round and given useful local information. The famous lemon drizzle cake awaited us and was delicious. The house is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. Certainly some of the furnishings and fittings are twenty years old, but everything worked and all were excellent quality and tasteful. The kitchen had every device you could wish for, and the master bedroom and bathroom were fabulous. The villa is in a beautiful and safe location, with very private garden and pool, and lovely views from all the balconies.. The staff were friendly and efficient. There are so many good restaurants nearby, particularly at some of the vineyards and excellent shops at Constantia Village. We couldn't have asked for more.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Having lived in Cape Town a number of years ago, I knew that when I was bringing family with us from the UK that I wanted to stay in Constantia. We looked at many options before settling on Groot Constantia Villa, not least for its location (bordering on Groot Constantia wine farm). The house itself was ideal for our purposes, 5 bedrooms and numerous rooms that allowed for privacy when required. Some of the decor was a bit dated and the television wasn't quite the quality that the family were used to. That said, we did not come to SA to watch tele! The staff at the house were superb and Dennis was a very generous host, not to mention his wife's lovely lemon drizzle cake. I would not hesitate to come back to this property, and I know my father-in-law particularly enjoyed walking through the vineyards.

“Lovely Constantia Villa”
Reviewed January 12, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

An excellent, comfortable villa in a wonderful setting. Well equipped, with plenty of space, inside and out, this is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy Cape Town. The facilities are excellent and there are good shops nearby if needed, but also with easy access to see all the sights. The house was perfect for a range of age groups, with enough space and activites for everyone(pool, sunbeds, large garden, pizza oven, pool table, music system etc). Well serviced by lovely staff who were polite, helpful and eager to please. Highly recommended – wish we could comeback every year!

“Beautiful Villa”
Reviewed December 22, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Constantia is a leafy suburb in Cape Town. Nova Constantia is the upmarket area full of the most beautiful large houses of which Groot Constantia Villa is one.
The house is large, luxurious, very well equipped and immaculately clean. It is on the edge of Groot Constantia vineyard which you can freely access and the area is quite and peaceful.
Dennis (the owner) and his wife Liz, who live next door are really helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We thourghly recocomend this villa.
