Beautiful Romantic Cottage
WOW! What an amazing end to our Honeymoon! The cottage was just as described, we did not rent a car and solely relied on Uber. It was very easy to get around, we even did a wine tour using Uber. There is a mall and grocery store near by. This is a very safe neighborhood. The pictures do not do the cottage justice, it’s gorgeous and we did not want to leave! Athol is a wonderful host and lives on the premises, very responsive and overall a great guy! The pool and hot tub are beautiful. We had lunch at Beau Constansia, highly recommended! The views are amazing!

We are so pleased you and your family had a relaxed and enjoyable stay enjoying the solar heated swimming pool. Lime Cottage here at LeBonheur is conveniently situated, a short distance from Constantia Village where you can do shopping for all your necessities, as well as your regular visits to the Virgin Active Gym. It is always great to see our return guests visit time and time again.

Great Find ... Great Location!
I really lucked out when I found this place! It's in the perfect location for us (just around the corner from my brother and family's home for when we visit from the US), in a gorgeous, safe neighborhood, and is super spacious and comfortable. Athol and his staff were very helpful with everything we needed! We couldn't ask for a more perfect place to stay when we visit and will definitely be back!!!

Luxurious, well maintained, friendly, accessible, family cottage
We loved this spot in the heart of Constantia - central, impeccably maintained, luxury with friendly staff and owner who all went the extra mile to make us feel at home (complete with the occasional visit from Stretch the dog, who my kids adored). The accommodation has all you can think of - it's aestehtically well done, has great green tech (water & electricity), and has great wheel chair accessibility. Well done to Le Bonheur for nailing it!

Lime Cottage - highly recommended
Excellent base to explore beautiful Cape Town & surrounding area. Joined my sister who was staying in Lime Cottage - first class 2-bed accommodation set in a complex with pool, sun terrace, secure parking, BBQ. Athol was delightful & on hand to help (but not intrusive at all). Visit to Boulders Beach a must. Fantastic week thank you Athol!

Ideal base for a holiday in Cape Town
Lime Cottage is ideally located if you are planning to visit the Cape. It has been fitted out to a high standard and throughout our 2 week stay we have always felt secure. The pool is of a high standard, the only small issue being that you have to walk through the side of the other cottages to get to it. The owner, Athol, is always on hand to deal with any minor issues, as well as to provide advice on restaurants etc. This is our 4th trip to Cape Town and we have always stayed in Constantia. In the past we have stayed at another residence, but will use Lime Cottage in the future as it does provide good value for money.

Excellent home away from home
We already stayed our 2nd time at Athols (and this will be definitely not our last one), everything was perfect. We like the open living room and the well-equipped kitchen, everything is like on the pictures. As we often come in Winter (during European summer Holidays) we unfortunately could not use the nicely looking swimming pool. Athol is a really nice host, always reachable if something is needed. Thanks for everything! Constantia Village is just a few minutes by car away where you can both fill your fridge or also do some shopping and visiting some coffees - we recommend Tasha's Café, really great! Make sure that you don't miss Kirstenbosch, the largest and greatest botanical garden in Africa - this is also quite close to LeBonheur.

Wonderful place with wonderful hosts!
Das Haus ist ein Traum und wunderbar zentral in alle Richtungen gelegen. Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Constantia sind für Selbstversorger hervorragend und die Auswahl der Restaurants nahezu unbegrenzt. Man muss also abends wahrhaft nicht ins Stadtzentrum fahren. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Hout Bay, Kalk Bay, der Strand von Muizenberg, Cape Point usw. sind schnell zu erreichen, ohne dass man permanent Kapstadt passieren muss. Athol und das gesamte Team sind ebenso traumhafte Gastgeber und vor allem vor Ort, was sehr hilfreich ist. Für uns nach den vielen Jahren immer wieder der ideale Beginn für unseren Südafrikaufenthalt und schon lange ein Stück "hometwon" and "family", die man nicht mehr missen möchte.
