Your Hosts @ ASCOT GARDENS - Barry and Lesley Edkins,
8 Eksteen Avenue, Bergvliet
Born in the Baby Boomer decade (post 2nd World War) both hosts are originally from Johannesburg where they completed their schooling.
A shipboard romance on the Cape Town Castle when sailing from Cape Town to England in 1967 led to the couple marrying in 1969 and settling down first in Durban until 1972 and from where they then spent 5 years in Zimbabwe, living in both Bulawayo and Harare.
Since the closure of Barrys clothing factory in October 2005, Barry has been marketing and managing ASCOT GARDENS.
At ASCOT GARDENS, Barry is responsible for marketing, reservations, payments and maintenance;and for ensuring that the money trees continually bear fruit which then enables Lesley to present our guests with immaculate and stunning gardens throughout the year, and accommodation considered the best value for money self catering accommodation in the Constantia Valley
We live on the property in our own private corner house and from there manage the 1 acre property consisting of the 12 different sized ASCOT GARDENS SELF CATERING garden suites .
Ascot Gardens often has open days to show off our lovely gardens , and the money raised is donated to worthy charities .
BARRY EDKINS purchased this cottage in 1996
Barry’s work in the Clothing Industry led to a move from Zimbabwe to Cape Town in 1977 and the purchase of the original ASCOT HOUSE , 6 EKSTEEN AVENUE, BERGVLIET in 1979.
In 1996, when their 3 children Grant , Scott and Angie finally left home , Ascot House was subdivided into 3 separate private self catering suites and the ASCOT GARDENS self catering venture was born.
In 2001 , a property at the back of Ascot House was purchased and rebuilt and opened for guests in December 2001 as ASCOT LODGE , 17 JEFFCOAT AVENUE , also offering 3 private self catering suites.
NOVEMBER 2004 marked the opening of another adjoining property ASCOT VILLA , 30 HIDDINGH ROAD , a luxury entire private House/Villa that sleeps 11-14 or can also be booked as 3 separate private self catering suites for different families .
ASCOT MEWS, 28 HIDDINGH ROAD, was opened to guests in July 2005. Conversion of single house to 3 private self catering suites was completed and offers guests s/c accommodation for up to 10 guests.
All of our units have been refurbished in both 2014 and 2015 and furnishings are continuously being updated .The gardens and property are very well maintained
Our annual 3 Star Grading award ensures that our accommodation is of an international standard . Last successful inspection was in October 2015
Barry is a keen golfer , and also a partner with son Scott , in Ascot Tours , a company specializing in Golf Tours , hotel accommodation , safaris , car hire and travel throughout Southern Africa.
Barry enjoys drinking good red wine , and his occasional over indulgence has often spoiled a good Thai or fish barbeque meal that he has prepared for his invited friends or ASCOT GARDENS guests.
Lesley , Michael the gardener , Mary and Sheila the cleaning maids , Albert the maintenance man , all ensure that ASCOT GARDENS is always looking good , clean and colorful for our many international guests that often return and stay with us for 3 weeks to 3 month each year during our summer months of November to end March .
Barry loves to pass on local information of where to eat , shop and visit local attractions. He can recommend some good value deals offered by local restaurants , and provide a daily weather prediction ( mostly incorrectly ! )
A great place to stay with all the comforts of home and conveniently situated to visit all the sights and wine route . It even has a little library with a nice selection and internet with free wifi . We'll certainly come stay here again .
Jan and Yolanda ,
We stayed one week in this well equipped apartment. Room had full kitchen and separate livingroom and bedroom. There was also nice terrace and beautiful garden, were we had our self made breakfast and sometimes dinner. There are restaurants and shops at a walking distance.
We even had our own garage for the car with remote control !
The owner Barry is extremely helpful and gave good advice for our traveling. There is also information library full of traveling information !
We came to Ascot Gardens with a group, but I was lucky to stay in the Mountain View Suite with a friend. We were very happy with the view and the balcony that overlooked the gardens on ground. We arrived to a clean, and spacious room with plenty of amenities. The bathroom was very clean and the laundry unit available was a big plus! The surrounding area was quite and very well put together. We enjoyed the short walk to the neighborhood park and it's proximity to the major grocery store. Barry and Lesley were very friendly and we really appreciated their hospitality.
We were looking for a place south of Cape Town for our base for touring around the Peninsula for a beginning of our African experience and we picked the Ascot Gardens. We stayed 2 nights and we loved it. It's 2 min from shopping centre, 20 minutes driving for city centre (30 min rush hours), Muizenberg Beach, Constantia and have a good road connection towards other spots like Chapman's Peak Drive, Simon's Town, Cape Point.
The place itself save, quite and you can park the car behind the gate. There few restaurants nearby too. Apartments are clean and well equipped; nice bathroom, full kitchen (so you can save few quid by buying a roasted chicken or ready made meals in a shop), overall great value for money.
In the previous reviews I came across some negative comments regardless additional payment required for central heating -for us despite it was early spring with max temp in late teens and chilly morning and nights but we were not cold without central heating. We used hot water bottles to warm up bed before go to sleep and we were fine till morning.
Barry is very helpful.
We should come a day or 2 earlier and stay longer there longer.
I am in love with the Constantia Valley and wanted to really experience the quaintness of this really majestic location. Ascot Gardens made it that much more special. If you like the homely, quaint farm feel in the heart of the beautiful Southern Suburbs then you will love this place. And dont forget the mountains…
We were due to arrive at 18:30 but ended up being late due to car rental issues and was still greeted with warmth and friendliness.
I love exploring and this was the perfect location with quick access to pretty much anywhere in Cape Town. We managed to zip here there and everywhere in 3 days and see a lot of different things.
Thank you to Ascot Gardens for making it such a stress-free, hospitable visit – even though it was short we were still treated like patrons who came to spend 2 weeks.
Keep up the good work!
Our stay at Ascot Gardens was wonderful. The accommodation were beyound our expecatations, We had the Royal suite. A remarkable place in itself. The accommodation is located a short walk to a mall containing two super markets and bistros.We also ate across the square ,excellent food and service. We realy loved our stay, the aroma of the gardens when you open the windows was breathtaking. The location of the gardens allowed for visiting THE CAPE, wineries, tabletop mountain, and of course CAPE TOWN. All sites were close and accessible. My son in law is a golf pro here in the states and he wanted me to take a look and my report is outstanding golf is available. In my opinion this place is 5 star. Sincerely Robert and Roxanne Schuchman
