Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect at the cottage, what an amazing place to stay! We enjoyed being able to walk through the vineyard to enjoy dinner and wine tasting. Melissa was an incredible host, we couldn't recommend the cottage more.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Had very enjoyable chill out time at the cottage. Well equipped and comfortable. It is very quiet with private driveway to the property. Melissa on hand if needed. The three dogs were very friendly but not intrusive. Hope to come back soon.

Michael and Sandra were suitably impressed

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a secluded part of the garden of the larger house lived in by the landlady, and is approached via a separate driveway which has a secure gate. It offers good privacy. Melissa was extremely helpful and also completely respectful of our privacy. She brought us chilled wine on our arrival. There are 3 very friendly dogs which only occasionally wandered near the cottage, and were quiet and no problem whatsoever.

The cottage and garden were delightful, and we enjoyed spending time here relaxing, and not feeling we needed to be out all of the time.

The Constantia area is very nice has a safe feel. The cottage feels secure.

The Groot Constantia vineyard is right on the doorstep and is an excellent half day visit (that's whether or not you want to taste the excellent wines). Kirstenbosch is also very close by and is a definite must visit.

Very happy to recommend this accommodation to others.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
