Wonderful location, stunning home and warm and welcoming hosts
The location of this Villa is absolutely perfect for visiting Cape Town and it's attractions. Gorgeous location and spectacular views. The house is very well equipped, spacious and can accommodate large families easily and comfortably. The pool area and outdoor eating are is just lovely, with a pizza oven and braii. We felt very secure during out stay. The house itself is situated on the doorstep of Groot Constantia vineyards, the walk through to the Wine Estate is just stunning, a real gem. There is a fab shopping village just a few minutes away with some lovely shops, restaurants and supermarket. Dennis and Elizabeth were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome right from the offset. Vanessa and Kryford who looked after the house while we stayed are a pleasure I would absolutely recommend a stay here and we would visit again in a heartbeat!

Superb hospitality in a spacious villa in the heart of leafy Constantia
We were a very large family group staying in this beautiful villa surrounded by the most amazing views you can imagine. Groot Constantia is a central location to explore all of the attractions in the environs of Cape Town. Our hosts treated us like family, catered to our every needs and even the most unusual of inquiries were seen to. The shops of the Village were so close and we were a short drive from the penguins of Simonstown and the beaches of Hout Bay and Noordhoek. A home away from home - a place we could all agree we would like to visit again and again. Thank you to Dennia and Elizabeth for everything!

Meets every expectation
Our family stayed in this villa for 10 nights over the New Year period, and to be honest I don’t see how anyone could want for a better base when staying in Cape Town. Owner Dennis sets the tone from the moment you arrive – a warm and friendly welcome, a comprehensive tour of the property and its facilities, and a wonderful cake! The villa itself had everything we needed – clean, comfortable and spacious, with a well equipped kitchen, easy to operate TV and music system, fabulous pool and a great outdoor area. Everyone in our group – from age 50 to 6 – was catered for, and nothing is too much trouble for the team who bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy your stay. The villa is also really well located – a short walk across the vineyard to two fab restaurants and wine tasting, or a short car ride to Constantia Village for shopping and more dining options. We did stay at the villa and braai a lot! The waterfront, Hout Bay and other beaches also within easy reach. We have rented properties in Cape Town before – usually in Camps Bay – but this villa was without a doubt the best of the lot. We would not hesitate to return (we didn’t want to leave!) and would thoroughly recommend for a fabulous holiday.

Perfect
So nice to meet an owner who really cares about his guests experience. Lovely welcome that included a home made cake! Great location, access to Groot Constansia vineyard and only a short drive to the beach, Table mountain and the city of Cape Town. Thank you Dennis.

Exzellent
Wir waren 3 Wochen zu Viert bei Dennis, obwohl dieses sehr grosse Haus problemlos für 6 oder sogar 8 Personen geeignet ist. Es gibt nur Kleinigkeiten zu bemängeln. Das WIFI ist nicht über alle Zweifel erhaben. Die Wasserversorgung der Duschen ist auch etwas verbesserungsbedürftig. Von den 4 Duschen hatte nur eine wirklich immer ausreichend Wasser. Der Aussenbereich mit dem Pizzaofen ist genial und sehr grosszügig gebaut. Wir könnten uns ganz gut vorstellen, Urlaub wieder bei Dennis zu verbringen. Für 4 Personen allerdings ist das Haus sehr teuer, obwohl es jeden Franken Wert ist.

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.

A home away from home, with breath taking views!!!
We had the most fantastic week at this beautiful villa. We were 9 people and the Villa has 5 Superb bedrooms with very comfortable beds and lovely linen. All bedrooms a very well equipped. The Villa has a great entertainment area with an awesome pizza oven which we so enjoyed!! The kitchen is one of the most equipped ones that we have ever had the pleasure of being in. We had great fun with the pool table. There is nothing that this house doesn't have, including direct access to the lovely vineyards of Groot constantia. The cleaning staff are very helpful and very discreet making our stay very comfortable. The hosts themselves are so warm and friendly, nothing is too much trouble with added touches like amazing home baked lemon cake and wine tasting/tour vouchers from them. They have also just updated all of the decor of this lovely villa. Thank you so much Dennis and your lovely wife- we loved it!!

Wonderful villa
Staying in August 2016 and really enjoyed the size, ambience, tasteful decor and overall luxury of the villa. Dennis could not have been more helpful and the service from the staff was outstanding. Did not have the best of weather but the underfloor heating and log fire kept us warm. Only suggestion...a heated pool would mean that we could use it ratether than just look. Thoroughly recommended.

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 :-) Dave, Frances, Tracey, Dean and Claudette

Lovely villa in a great location
There were 7 of us staying at the villa and there was plenty of room for so many more. It was beautiful and so clean and well looked after by all of the charming, helpful and amazing staff. Dennis, the owner was helpful too, and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We spent most of our time outside however, enjoying the pool and braai area and drinking in the magnificent views of the mountains. Obviously, the villa is situated in the famous Groot Constantia vineyards, but the location is so much more than this. Close to Cape Town, to beaches, great shopping, great food, penguins, birds, wildlife, wonderful walks, beautiful national parks, more penguins (we love penguins). The location is very quiet too and we felt so safe and well looked after. Highly recommended!
