Absolutely fantastic with all the trimmings!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Lime Cottage, Le Bonheur estate. It really is a gem in the best location in Cape Town! The staff are all smiles and willing to help. A true vacation. Athol is an excellent hands on Manager/Owner and we would not hesitate to return or recommend! The location is phenomenal and we enjoyed great restaurants, short trips to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, superb wine farm trips and easy shopping at the local Constantia Village. The security, solar heating, bore hole water system all added to our fun and happy vacation. Thank you Athol!

Großartiges Ferienhaus in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das immer noch wie neu wirkende Ferienhaus gehört zur Grundausstattung unserer Reisen. Der große Vorteil neben der Sauberkeit und wunderschönen Ausstattung: Die sehr zentrale Lage in alle Richtungen (Meer, Kapstadt, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Cape Point, Kalk Bay, die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten in Constantia selbst usw.) und die liebenswerte Betreuung durch Athol und sein Team. Wir kommen auch 2018 gern wieder!

The WOW factor is 9.9 on the scale. We stayed in Lime Cottage for just under three weeks and cannot praise the property and the owner too highly. The cottage is luxurious and fitted out with quality, everything you need to make the stay very comfortable indeed. The cottage is located within very secure surroundings and just a short stroll from Constantia village. There are a number of vine yards within walking distance of the cottage.

The owner and his assistants are extremely helpful and go out of their way to assist you whenever needed. We are returning again next year for four weeks and very much looking forward to a relaxing holiday.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Le Bonheur is a stunning, 5 star accommodation venue in Constantia. The venue is absolutely amazing, great decor and extremely secure. Location is great (easy access to Cape Town centre, walks on Table Mountain, and the Contantia vineyards). We stayed in the in the villa and in Lime Cottage. The villa is spacious and the French furniture is luxurious, comfortable and stylish. The beds have top class mattresses and pillows.

Lime Cottage was fully equipped with everything you might need and beautifully furnished and cleanliness throughout the Cottage was of a high standard. The French style kitchen was spacious and well equipped. Full screen televisions in every room was of top quality

Athol is a very attentive and caring host that makes you feel at home and will go out of his way to cater for your needs. The venue is absolutely amazing, great decor and extremely secure.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Lime Cottage during the very chilly August of this year. We were very cozy with the fireplace burning which warmed the whole cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking up a storm on and in the enormous gas stove/oven and didn't want for any cooking equipment, crockery or cutlery - all these items are supplied and are stylish, practical and spotless. There is a washing machine and dryer in the kitchen too which both take large loads and are quietly efficient. The owner, Athol's style comes through in the comfortable and refined furnishings and also in the unique, beautiful art pieces dotted around the cottage. I had to drag myself out of the memory foam pillow top, king size, extra-length bed in the mornings - sheer luxury! The en-suite bathroom we used off the main bedroom is stylish and chic with a gigantic shower rose in the shower and enough room for about 4 people to comfortably shower at once :-) If I must say something negative, the shower being blocked on the first night (although quickly rectified by Athol's efficient, friendly and handsome handyman), put a damper on an otherwise faultless week in Lime Cottage.

For Summer we have roof windows and a big Patio with frameless glass doors which opens up onto the lawn area where you can relax on recliners or enjoy a barbeque. For Winter it has a wood burning fireplace and under carpet heating. Situated in the beautiful and safe Upper Constantia, guests are sure to have a relaxing, enjoyable stay.

Protected from the summer winds, making it an ideal venue for both summer and winter vacations and within easy travelling distances to many of the well-known sight-seeing spots found in the 'Mother City'.

Le Bonheur is ideal for Film shoots, Company Conferences, Small Weddings or just for the family, couple looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and having a holiday of a lifetime.

Central to the six top Wine Farms in Constantia Valley, Golf Courses, Beaches, Top Restaurants & Bars, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront.
