Mark and Bibie are the happy owners of this property. After living in London, Paris and Brussels, we moved in Cape Town in 2013 to enjoy the good weather and the beauty of the city. In March 2019 we are moving to another dream destination: Mauritius...
Bibie purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Bibie chose Wynberg NU (2)
We fell in love with Cape Town and the beautiful and green Constantia area. We bought the property 5 years ago and made a lot of changes to build an enchanting child friendly and eco place. The property is ideally located on Rhodes drive in the Constantia wine valley. "Rhodes Drive is a 7 km mountain drive along the eastern slopes of the Table Mountain range and connects Constantia Nek in the south with the suburb of Newlands. This is one of the most scenic wooded drives on the Cape Peninsula and traverses some of the plush suburbs of the Southern Peninsula. It is also the only access road to the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. From dense indigenous forests, to towering old pine trees, majestic mountains, hiking trails, picnic spots and world class botanical gardens - it's all there along the wonderful Rhodes Drive" (cf. southafricamountainpasses).
What makes this Cottage unique
The property has beautiful mountain view, is very well protected from the wind (which can be a nightmare elsewhere in Cape Town) and has a wonderful and colourful garden, a paradise for birds and butterflies. We have 2 massive and very old trees (an avocado which produces tons of delicious fruits all year long and a yellowwood ) and more than 20 different varieties of fruit and nut trees. Everything that grows in our garden is organic, from the grass to the flowers and the fruits and vegetables.

The White House is superbly located for easy access to Cape Town and all the Southern Suburbs and Constantia Village, , Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape of Good Hope, and Stellenbosch. It is exquisitely well furnished and comfortable, with a delightful garden and pool, and the staff is most attentive and helpful. Definitely an ideal Holiday Home.
The property is outstanding. Bibi and Mark are so welcoming and make you feel at home. Highly recommend.
Throughout all the years my wife and I have travelled and rented homes in other countries, we have never felt as welcomed as we were here. This home is exactly as pictured. It’s located on an estate in a secluded setting in Constantia very close to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The house is immaculate and tended to daily by friendly and efficient staff that takes care of your every need promptly and with a smile. The estate grounds are impeccably landscaped and manicured daily. You can relax on your own patio, enjoy sitting by the pool, or just admire the views from the pool house with its own complete kitchen and exercise room. The absolute best thing about staying here are your hosts, Bibie and Mark. They are warm, welcoming, and genuine people eager to share what they have with others.
The property is half surrounded by the Green Belt and opposite to the Cecelia Forest (Table Mountain). Nature lovers will enjoy the kilometers of unspoiled hiking trails directly from your front door.
