“Perfect, relaxing holiday”
Reviewed January 24, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Our family of 8 people ranging between the ages of 9 and 76 stayed at Groot Constantia Villa for 2 weeks in December 2016. On our arrival, we were greeted by Dennis who gave us a tour of the house and provided us with all the information we needed to ensure we had a safe and comfortable stay.

The house itself is amazing, and we didn’t want for anything. We spent most of our time at the house around the pool and in the entertainment area. The kitchen is very well equipped, although most of our cooking was done outside in the braai area. The beds are all very comfortable and the bed linen was changed regularly by the hardworking and attentive staff.

We visited the Groot Constantia Vineyard several times and also enjoyed taking walks to the bars and restaurants a short walk away. The Constantia Village is nearby with a Woolworths Food, Pick n Pay, Clicks, etc. Constantia itself is very central and within easy access to the amazing attractions Cape Town has to offer.

I would like to give a special mention to Magdalena, our lovely housekeeper. She worked very hard making sure the house was kept clean, bed linen changed and she always had a smile on her face. She is so warm and friendly and I really enjoyed our chats in the kitchen. She always made me laugh and I grew very fond of her.

It was very hard to leave the beautiful villa on our return to the UK and I miss Cape Town terribly. We are already planning our next trip and will certainly try to stay at the Groot Constantia Villa again in the future.

“An amazing property!”
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 :-)

“Stunning pool, beautiful bedrooms, friendly efficient staff - PERFECT!”
Reviewed January 18, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

From friendly and informative greeting on arrival by Denis and his wife to departure, Groot Constantia Villa was a perfect place to stay for our family. There was ample room for everyone to have their own "place" in peace. The pool area was stunning and had everything for a wonderful family BBQ. We hit an unusually hot few days and it was a relief to have use of the beautifully clean swimming pool. The whole house is decorated tastefully and the kitchen completely set up for all your needs. Close to good shopping areas, great wineries and stunning scenery. The staff that helped around the house were fantastic. Friendly and more than willing to help with everything from washing to cleaning up the BBQ area for the next night. I would highly recommend the home as a great place to stay.

“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!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

we had a fantastic time! the location is very convenient for Constantia Village, and right next to Groot Constantia - a nice walk to the wine tasting!
Dennis and Elizabeth couldn't have been nicer and made us feel very welcome.
The house is very secure even staying by myself with the kids after my husband went home.
The housekeepers were very pleasant and everything was spotless.
We definitely want to visit again!

“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!
