Perfect, relaxing holiday
Our family of 8 people ranging between the ages of 9 and 76 stayed at Groot Constantia Villa for 2 weeks in December 2016. On our arrival, we were greeted by Dennis who gave us a tour of the house and provided us with all the information we needed to ensure we had a safe and comfortable stay.
The house itself is amazing, and we didn’t want for anything. We spent most of our time at the house around the pool and in the entertainment area. The kitchen is very well equipped, although most of our cooking was done outside in the braai area. The beds are all very comfortable and the bed linen was changed regularly by the hardworking and attentive staff.
We visited the Groot Constantia Vineyard several times and also enjoyed taking walks to the bars and restaurants a short walk away. The Constantia Village is nearby with a Woolworths Food, Pick n Pay, Clicks, etc. Constantia itself is very central and within easy access to the amazing attractions Cape Town has to offer.
I would like to give a special mention to Magdalena, our lovely housekeeper. She worked very hard making sure the house was kept clean, bed linen changed and she always had a smile on her face. She is so warm and friendly and I really enjoyed our chats in the kitchen. She always made me laugh and I grew very fond of her.
It was very hard to leave the beautiful villa on our return to the UK and I miss Cape Town terribly. We are already planning our next trip and will certainly try to stay at the Groot Constantia Villa again in the future.
What an amazing place!
I'd been corresponding with Dennis, the owner of the property, for about 9 months and found him extremely helpful and quick with his replies. That's always a great start.
When we arrived we were all bowled over by the attention to detail of Dennis and his wonderful staff who run the house. They couldn't do enough to help us with anything we needed but also leaving us to enjoy the house in peace.
What can I say about the house ... it's stunning and is, in my opinion, in the best location possible. Where else are you given a key to let yourself into the vineyards of the oldest wine estate in the country? Here you can walk through the vines for wine tasting and wonderful restaurants.
The pool, the garden, the braai area where all fantastic and the interior of the house was very spacious, light and bright.
The security was first class and we all felt completely safe and secure there.
Dennis and Elizabeth, thanks you so much for making such a wonderful base for us while on our Cape Town adventure! If you can book this house, don't hesitate. We will be back :-)

Ein Traumhaftes Anwesen für einen genialen Urlaub!
Das Ferienhaus ist genauso gut, wenn nicht noch besser, als es beschrieben ist. Wir hatten mit 10 Personen einen traumhaften Urlaub in diesem Ferienobjekt. Constantia war für uns der schönste Stadtteil von Kapstadt and alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sowie Kapstadt selbst sind von dort aus schnell mit dem Auto erreichbar. Die Vermieter sind jederzeit zur Stelle, wenn Fragen sind oder Hilfe benötigt wird. Die Angestellten von Dennis verwöhnen einen wo sie nur können und sind alle reizend. Es gab einfach nichts, was wir in diesem "Ferienpalast" bemängeln konnten. Das Haus ist sehr weitläufig und auch mit 10 Erwachsenen ist für alle genug Platz. Der Außenbereich ist wunderschön, sehr gepflegt und groß. Die Terrasse mit Grill und Pizzaofen ist genial. Wir haben den Aufenthalt dort sehr genossen und werden bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal dort gewesen sein.
Groot Constantia Villa
Fabulous accommodation with friendly hosts and staff who couldn't do enough to make our stay special, would highly recommend it to family and friends
Perfect stay in wonderful villa
We stayed in the Groot Constantia Villa for a week with 8 adults and one toddler. The villa was perfect for us: it had everything we could wish with excellent facilities (including a private pool, sunbeds, bbq, wifi) and is situated in a beautiful area right next to the Great Constantia wineries. The house is very large and luxurious (easily sleeps 10 adults), and cleaned daily by the friendly staff. Dennis (the owner) gave us a lot of tips and was very helpful. When we said we were bringing a 1 year old he bought a cot and toddler dining chair.
We highly recommend this villa!
Excellent and really comfortable Villa
We stayed here for seven nights. We were warmly welcomed by Dennis and introduced to Magdalena and the other staff, were shown round and given useful local information. The famous lemon drizzle cake awaited us and was delicious. The house is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. Certainly some of the furnishings and fittings are twenty years old, but everything worked and all were excellent quality and tasteful. The kitchen had every device you could wish for, and the master bedroom and bathroom were fabulous. The villa is in a beautiful and safe location, with very private garden and pool, and lovely views from all the balconies.. The staff were friendly and efficient. There are so many good restaurants nearby, particularly at some of the vineyards and excellent shops at Constantia Village. We couldn't have asked for more.
