What's not to love! FIVE STARS ALL AROUND!!!

If you find yourself heading to Cape Town and want to stay close to the city yet in a setting that is just simply perfect and idyllic, then look no further than this cottage in the heart of Constantia. Firstly, Melissa is just the greatest. So kind and welcoming, and a laugh as well! You feel like one of the family. The cottage is perfect for one or two people. I was on my own and had ample room and then some. Having a full kitchen and a washer and dryer, own private entrance and secured parking are all bonuses when you add the location to the mix. Everything is so close, and you can even walk to a number of the excellent wine estates, with one just literally being across the street. I will be heading back to Cape Town very soon and will be sure to rebook with Melissa at her fantastic cottage.

Dear Melissa,

Thank you for having me the past week. The clean and fully equipped cottage really took my mind away for a couple of days. The walks through the beautiful vine yards and the dogs waking me up in the morning highlighted the days.

The cottage is a place to retreat and when the absolute silence strikes your family provides the buzz.

Regards to the family

Wine Lovers Dream Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning location with magnificent Vineyard and mountain views. Beautifully decorated, very intimate cottage.

The Cottage was perfectly situated for us to make the most of the local wine farms as well as Kirstenbosch gardens close by.

Enjoying the friendly hospitality of Melissa, who hosted us and ensured we had everything we needed. She also helpfully pointed us to the local restaurants and must do activities nearby.

Thanks so much for the wonderful stay, Looking forward to returning soon.

Fantastic location with First rate favilities

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage set in lovely gardens. Very cozy yet spacious. Super clean and well decorated. We had all the facilities we needed but best of all it was just a stones throw from the top vineyards! Great access point to super restaurants too. Bed was extra comfy which was a lovely way to end a full day of traveling and exploring. I highly recommend this fabulous little place.
