  • We were a family of 3 adults and the cottage was perfect for us - spacious and clean. The location is lovely both in terms of it's setting and convenience. It is near to shops, cafes, restaurants and facilities such as banks and supermarkets. Chris and Allison were delightful and helpful hosts but discrete with it. We would have no hesitation in returning to this accommodation

  • I brought my sister and 84 yo mother to Capetown -- none of us had ever visited SA before. I have used AirBnB previously so decided to use it again for this trip. We totally scored. We had a lovely 2-bedroom apartment that opened to the garden. The setting was lovely --very quiet and secluded. Chris and Alison were very, very helpful, even loaning us a phone for our stay (phone service either not possible or very expensive for our mobiles there). As we were visiting friends, we were out almost all the time and weren't able to interact much with Alison and Chris. This is a pity, because the little time we did spend with them was delightful. I personally could spend a lot more time with them on the terrace drinking wine and talking politics. And certainly any time we had questions they were available. I couldn't imagine a better place for a retreat. It is outside of the downtown area, so staying there requires a vehicle, but no worries -- Chris and Alison will gladly help you figure out that piece as well. I felt very cared for and was to find such a restful spot where my mother also felt at home and all of us could relax.When I next travel to Capetown, I will book it again.

  • I actually planned to stay there 3 nights but because of the beauty and peaceful sourroundings, we stayed plus 3 nights. I was so impressed about the location and the space within the gardens of Constantia, how beautiful and highly recommendable.

    But the most I was impressed about this warm and helpful people, Chris and Alison, both are so beautiful and warm persons who really care about their guests and help where ever they can.
    If you want to know something about CT and RSA, Chris knows pretty a lot :-)
    This place is ideal for family with kids, there´s everything you need to be happy in CT.

    We will be back for sure .

    Horst & fam.
