I stayed at Constantia Cottages for about 4 days at the beginning of August 2018. I was visiting Cape Town from Johannesburg with my daughter and an exchange student from Germany (and she was warmly welcomed by our hosts who are German, too). Constantia Cottages is an extremely comfortable house situated in the southern suburb of Constantia. It is a four bedroomed house with two bathrooms. In most self-catering accommodation I have stayed in, kitchens are usually 'poorly kitted-out'. The kitchen at Constantia Cottage is very well 'kitted-out' with state of the art cooking utensils and enough crockery and cutlery to entertain visitors. Most visitors to South Africa are concerned about security. The house is secure with an electric fence, an alarm system and burglar bars. It must be wonderful to stay here in summer as the house has a lovely garden and swimming pool. When we stayed, Cape Town was rainy and cold. This did not deter our enjoyment - there was excellent heating. In addition, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. If there were any problems, these were attended to promptly. I would not hesitate to recommend Constantia Cottages if you're visiting Cape Town.
We had a lovely stay in the Constantia Cottages. The location was perfect for us as it is close to family, and the hosts were very pleasant. As the cottages are still being prepared it was a bit chaotic with builders and some small glitches in the access, but the little cottage itself was well appointed, we had all that we needed for our stay. Thank you We would definitely book it again. In spite of the serious water shortage in Cape Town we managed well.
We always stay in Cottage Cabernet as it provides us with everything we need for our trip with regard to location, swimming pool, garden, garage and everything we need in the house with a good kitchen and open plan living downstairs and a good size bedroom upstairs. We convert the second bedroom into a mini office for times we have to work. We play golf regularly and the cottage is ideally located for several excellent golf courses. It's Not far from Constantia Village for the shops.
Having stayed previously at Constantia Cottages for us there is no need to look elsewhere. It is so conveniently situated and just a short walk in to the excellent shopping centre, Constantia Village. The property is expertly managed and professionally run by Sabine and Otto. Clean and well serviced accommodation in very attractive gardens with a nice swimming pool. Affordable accommodation for everyone.
We visited constansia cottages again and had a wonderful visit. We were there for Christmas and New Year. Otto and Sabine are excellent hosts. Pinotage was perfect for us. All was clean and tidy. The gardens were so relaxing after sightseeing and golf. Our hosts were very helpful on all local knowledge. We will be booking again.
A very well presented accommodation with beautiful furnishings and a very friendly and helpful host in Hans. A beautiful garden one can relax out in alongside the pool. Will not hesitate to stay there again.
We stayed in the Pinotage Cottage for two weeks while visiting family in Cape Town. The location was ideal - very close to the Constantia Wine Belt and vineyards with easy access to the M3 which takes you to Cape Town's city center within 20 minutes and to beaches in 15 minutes or less. As it is winter in Cape Town, we felt fortunate to have relatively good weather (around 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit) with a few showers here and there. We personally did not find the need to turn on the heated flooring while there, the bedding provided was warm enough for chilly nights.
The hosts were wonderful - they provided tips and recommendations and were available when needed. We were explained the procedures upon arrival (very late at night) and given access to free Wi-Fi. This is a self catering cottage with mini-fridge and basic silverware so you can prepare a snack or tea for breakfast - tea and coffee was provided for you to make. There are lovely restaurants close by, as well as a shopping center, Constantia Village. The cleaning service was once a week, however when we requested additional towels for the bathrooms or the beach, we were provided them at no additional cost. We also appreciated that the guesthouse promotes recycling :)
We will definitely return for future trips! Thank you!
We traveled with our 9-year-old son, and Cottage Pinotage was sufficient with a pull-out bed.

We love Constantia Cottages and have stayed in Cottage Cabernet on 3 different trips, the last time for a 3 month escape from the UK winter. The cottage meets our every need and feels like home to us with a well equipped kitchen and good sized bedrooms. We love the garden and pool and our hosts are very welcoming and bend over backwards to ensure we have everything we need and help us with any issues. The location is ideal for us to get to golf courses, shopping close by at Constantia Village, all the great restaurants and wineries and good road links to go into Cape Town or further afield. We love it so much we are back again in December 2014.

We are so pleased we chose to stay here and the cottage is in the most beautiful and safest part of Cape Town. The accommodation was extremely well serviced with everything we needed and we loved the floor heating as it made the cottage so cosy at night.
The view from the master bedroom was spectacular and I loved just laying there in the mornings, reading and enjoying the scenery. The Constantia wineries are a two minute drive away and are just stunning, while the city centre was also easy to get to.
Hans and his wife were exceptional; helpful, friendly yet never intrusive. I would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone seeking safety, beauty, comfort and all in the very nicest residential area of Cape Town by far. We will definitely be back!

Das Cottage Chardonnay war für zwei Wochen unser Heim und Relax-Station. Joschka und ich haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und insbesondere den kleinen, privaten Garten zum Frühstücken und den großen Garten rund um den sehr einladenden Swimming Pool zum Relaxen genutzt. Das Queen-Size-Bett war für uns groß genug und bequem. Besonders hervorheben möchte ich die Versorgung mit tollen Weinen direkt vorort. Von diesem idealen Standort im Constantia Tal haben wir sehr viele Tagestouren unternommen, u.a. Paragliding und Hai-Tauchen. Und die tollen Restaurants und Märkte. Einfach super, alles gut und zeitnah zu erreichen. Die Vermieter waren stets aufmerksam, ihre zahlreichen Tipps uns sehr hilfreich. Der Stadtort ist perfekt, mitten in der Kaphalbinsel.
Paare, die Kapstadt auf ihrer Liste der Urlaubsziele haben, sollten die Constantia Cottages unbedingt in Betracht ziehen. Tolle Unterkunft, gute Preise und super nette Vermieter.
