Amazing

  • 5 of 5
My husband, teenage daughter and I had the absolute pleasure of staying for two weeks at the Bicycle Lodge. We were so warmly welcomed and felt at home immediately. The cottage was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and offered everything we needed, including a great little barbecue on the patio. I loved being so close to the vineyards of Constantia and only a short drive from Claremont's great shopping precint (Cavendish Square) and Fish Hoek beach and many other places. Although we spent most of our time sightseeing and catching up with family and friends (we migrated to Australia 10 years ago), it was always wonderful to return to Bicycle Lodge set in pretty gardens. It was comfortable, stylish, warm and inviting. I hope to return soon!

A slice of honeymoon heaven

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved this place!! Johan and Sharon are amazing hosts and their place is a little slice of heaven!

We loved everything about this place with 2 very nice bedrooms and comfortable beds, kitchen area, TV, pool, bird cage in the garden, and the most fun-loving dog, Zoe to greet us each morning.

This cottage was clean, well kept, and really had everything we needed to make basic meals. We loved the location that was close to the grocery store and shopping center and a quick drive from Steenberg, our favorite vineyard in Constantia wine region! They have an amazing restaurant there that we highly recommend if you plan on staying here. We loved how close we were to all the vineyards, which made for a very fun and memorable trip.

Perfect Location for Exploring The Cape

  • 5 of 5
A perfect location away from the hustle & bustle of Cape Town and within easy reach of Table Mountain, Cape Point, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens etc. The property itself oozes quality and has all the luxuries one could wish for including an excellent shower & one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in!
The Wi-Fi could be hit & miss at times though very useful for keeping in touch with home, weather watching and planning trips out.

The garden is a miniature nature reserve with Cape White-eyes, Pin-tailed Whydah, Sunbirds & other birds feeding on the seeds & nectar and the patio area is a perfect sun trap for afternoon refreshments in the company of Zoe, the loveable Labrador.

There's a huge shopping centre nearby where we bought gifts to take home and 2 restaurants within a short walk of the cottage. We ate in The Brasserie which was reasonably priced with friendly staff, good food, wine & beer. The Banana Jam Cafe at Kenilworth, about 8 km north of Tokai has the best craft beer selection in the whole of Africa and serves great food too.

One regret - not staying longer. If ever we're fortunate enough to return to the Western Cape this property will be our first choice. Thank you John & Sharon for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

Owner's Response: Feedback like this makes us very grateful to live in Tokai and to know that our guests appreciate our surroundings. Will source a booster for the WiFi.

Very nice lodge in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
Being asked to write a review I was a little hesitant to do so. I have been quite often in the bicycle lodge and this is because it is a lovely place. Writing an honest review could mean that it will be fully booked and I would have to look somewhere else!

But nevertheless I will be honest.

The bicycle lodge is a very nice place to stay in Cape Town.
Situated in Tokai the location is perfect to explore Cape Town and its surroundings.
The interior is nice and one feels at home the moment you arrive!
Its is very clean and comfortable.

The garden and little pool gives the lodge an extra dimension having breakfast on the little terrace, just sitting outside enjoying the sun surrounded by nature or lit the barbecue which the quests can use.

I have stayed here with my wife and two children (age 10 and 13) and they all enjoyed staying at the lodge.

Finally the owners are very helpful should you have any questions or requests to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

I can highly recommend this lodge!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5
Bicycle Lodge was a great place to stay. The accommodation is lovely with two big bedrooms and a spacious lounge. Sharon and John were very helpful, giving good advice on where to go. We found the location to be excellent - easy for Cape Point, Chapman's Peak Drive and the Botanical Gardens but also with good access to the city centre. We were caught in a bad traffic jam coming out of the centre at evening rush hour - so the next time we came back via Camps Bay which was much better with stunning views of Table Mountain. Thank you for a lovely stay - we would thoroughly reccommend.

Owner's Response: Its always a pleasure having guests who appreciate the scenic Constantia Valley and prefer it as a base rather than the heat, congestion and traffic of the city bowl or Waterfront.

A home from home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 12 days in August at Bicycle Lodge, and this was by far the best rental experience either of us have ever had. Immediately we were very warmly greeted by Sharon and John, whose house is on the same site as the cottage. It was clear that they had spared no expense in making the property as comfortable as possible for their guests, as it was spotless, with every kind of kitchen appliance imaginable, beautiful furniture, and themselves were full of advice and recommendations for places to see or where to eat, which made our stay in South Africa that much more special. The cottage is seperated from the main house by a small fence, which gives guests privacy. Bay windows look out from the bedroom onto the beautiful garden, and at night it was lovely to sit out on the stoep and watch the sun setting behind Constantiaberg. The property is very close to the M3, which means that everything is accessible by car (necessary) in about 15-30 minutes, although there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby in the Tokai and Constantia area. At the affordable prices offered, I thoroughly recommend the Bicycle Lodge to anyone planning an extended holiday in Cape Town, and wishes to experience life there as a Capetonian.
