“Wonderful relaxing with private pool”
Reviewed March 25, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We spent a few days in December @Majini Pool House - it was like having a private villa with pool. Early sunrise morning swim, coffee at the pool and chilling then in the afternoon after we returned from our daily round of golf. We should have stayed a lot longer ...

“A haven of calm”
Reviewed February 22, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

What a peaceful place and an enjoyable stay!
The pool-house is ideal for a couple wanting self-catered luxury. A proper tranquil cottage by the pool, after a long flight you arrive here to instant calm and relaxation - and a luxury quality of finish inside.
The pool-house has its own pathway to the side of the main house and garden - so you feel a part of the estate but with your own privacy.
It was baking hot during our visit and the pool is the ideal temperature to step out of the cottage and into to cool off and do some short lengths (or watch a family of ducks/ducklings do the same!)
Loved the fire pit on the deck by the pool and the use of a Weber and sunloungers. And being able to share the large green garden to chill and read a book or pick passionfruits for breakfast.
Beyond the borehole windmill by the cottage, the mountains form a stunning backdrop to Constantia Valley. Majini is in an ideal location in that its close to wineries and golf courses, a 20-25 minute drive (or cheap Uber) into the city or over to Hout Bay.
Suzy and her staff were the perfect hosts and can give great advice to best local restaurants and beaches etc.
Can't wait to come back for longer!

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed February 13, 2018 for a stay in November 2017

Back to Suzy and Majini Guesthouse for the fourth time in two years.
It's like coming back home to this beautiful place in the calm and lush
Sweet Valley of Constantia.
This time we stayed at the Pool-house, a gorgeous little cottage by the pool.
A glass of Chardonnay seeing the sun go down behind mountains, starting the barbecue, walking up to the kitchen garden to pick som species and vegetables
for the outside dinner by the pool.....
Magic !
We have said it before, but this good old hospitality at it's best.

Suzy and all the nice staff, we'll come back as soon as possible.

“Charming guesthouse with beautiful setting in Constantia”
Reviewed September 24, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for a week in September. We had a great time and loved our beautiful little English cottage. Waking up with the view over the mountains, the pool and the windmill was magic. We appreciated the rural feeling with all the birds. We picked herbs in the garden.
We found good restaurants nearby like Buitenverwachting and The Open Door.

“A place of peace and tranquility”
Reviewed May 14, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I was lucky enough to have a six week stay in Cape Town at the wonderful Majini Pool House. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome by Suzy and the dogs!! The Pool House allowed me my own space whilst being surrounded by such amazing mountain views from the Majini garden. Suzy was always on hand to offer any advice on the local attractions and amenities. I managed to relax very quickly which was much needed. This place is so peaceful it feels like a different world, heaven on earth. I will be coming back here hopefully very soon. I miss it so much and those lovely dogs who became part of my family throughout my stay. HIghly recommended.

“"Will definitely be making a return"”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I had the privilege of staying at the Majini House for my Easter weekend visiting my Godmother, who lives in Contansia. Everything was extremely enjoyable. The hospitality and availability of Suzy helped me settle in quickly where she provided information about everything and anything to do in Cape Town.

What I enjoyed most was the amenities provided. The kitchen is provided with food in case you just arrived from a long haul flight and don't fancy going out which was a pleasant surprise I took advantage of.

The dogs are extremely friendly, and the House is conveniently located near a main road without the noise intruding your private space.
