Fantastic stay in total luxury
Situated in a quiet and very upmarket part of Constantia within a few minutes drive from the best vineyards and also the fantastic and beautiful Kirstenbosch gardens. We were amazed at the size of the suite. Our entire Paris airport room would have fitted into the kitchen/diner and another into the bedroom and another into the bedroom! The suite has been fitted out to the highest possible standard and every little thing has been thought about. Not only do you have the suite but use of the garden and pool plus the lovely covered seating and dining area by the pool with its own built in BBQ. Sanet stays in the background and left us in peace to come and go as wanted but was there for any queries if we needed her. Lemmy the maid is an absolute gem and kept the suite spotless and even did our laundry. We had such laughs with her. I wondered why there were so few reviews but a look through the the visitors book showed that once discovered, people just came back time and again filling up the availability. We were very lucky to stay there. PS there is only ONE suite and it's all yours.

We said we’d go back
When I reviewed this perfect hide away back in December 18 I said we only had 4 nights and would have loved to stay longer (and if I didn’t I should have😀). This time we stayed for 11 nights and it is still great. I was pleased to see that they had been awarded their 5th star and its deserved. Steve and Sanet are perfect hosts and totally unintrusive until you need them for advice, help etc and then they are with you in an instant. Lem, who looks after the property and makes sure the suite is spotless, is great and she can come to Scotland and look after us here any day she chooses. The property is within minutes of some of Cape Town’s finest wineries and restaurants, a very short drive to the shopping mall and about 20 mins (depending on rush hour) from the heart of Cape Town. If you are looking for the perfect retreat for a couple in Cape Town this one takes a lot of beating.

Bliss
The quality of the apartment was outstanding, we felt so at peace. Everything reflected the owners, such kind, generous and thoughtful people, we were so impressed at the way they responded to our needs and the little touches. I’ve never been in such a well equipped home and all beautifully clean, perfect.

Fantastico
Non potevamo sperare di piu' come conclusione di un bellissimo viaggio in Sud Africa. Constancia Garden Suite e' un piccolo gioiello, a poco piu' di 20min dal centro di Cape Town e comodissimo per le vicine wineyards e Chapman's peak drive. La zona e' residenziale, immersa nel verde, sicura e con veloce accesso alle autostrade vicine. Un piccolo centro commerciale e' a poche centinaia di metri di distanza. Al nostro arrivo siamo stati calorosamente accolti da Sanet, la proprietaria, e Lem, la domestica. La loro presenza, costante ma mai invadente, e' garanzia di efficenza e segno di attenzione agli ospiti. La casa si etende su circa 90m, completa di cucina, stanza matrimoniale ed un ampio bagno. Il gusto delle decorazioni, la qualita' degli arredi e dei servizi offerti non e' inferiore a quelle che si possono trovare in un albergo a 5 stelle. Il vantaggio, tuttavia, e' quello di poter disporre in esclusiva di un'ampia piscina e giardino, in un contesto di completa tranquillita' e privacy. Siamo restati positivamente colpiti dall'attenzione ai minimi dettagli e dalle attenzioni riservateci durante il nostro soggiorno.

Guess there are so few reviews because everyone wants to keep the secret.
Firstly, if it were mine I’d change the name to ‘The Constantia Garden Suite’ to remove any confusion that you are having to share the place. It is all yours! We only had 4 nights there during a 3 week trip to the Cape Town area and we wish we had spent the entire time there. It outshone everywhere else we stayed by a mile. There is everything you could possibly need/wish for to make your stay comfortable. The bedroom is huge, as is the bathroom, you could be very picky and say that the kitchen living room is a little small - but there are only 2 of you there and when you open the bifolding doors there is a whole world of space. Now the property is great but it is the love and service that Sanet and Lammy provide that turns it from great into truly exceptional. We are planning our return now for next year and we will stay there for the duration - assuming none of you readers have booked it out.

Dear Forbes and Lesley, Thank you for the taking the time to review Constantia Garden Suite(s). It was such a pleasure to have you with us and we are honored to count you as our guests. You were the most considerate, interesting and kindest guests we could have wished for. Thank you for pointing out that we should mention that we are offering accommodation for only one couple at a time - that it is one suite and not several suites ... so true, we have to make changes and be clear on what we offer. You left us with a warm feeling, and we are so looking forward to catch up with you again and to meet the rest of the family. Hope you had a safe journey home, that Lesley has recovered, and we are looking forward for our paths to cross again. Warm regards, Sanet

An oasis of comfort !
Constantia is a delightful leafy southern suburb of Cape Town where we have stayed on numerous occasions before. However our past years’ accommodation pales into insignificance compared with the quality offered by Steve & Sanet at their Constantia Garden Suites. It is both spacious and extremely comfortable, overlooking a good size pool and with every conceivable requirement catered for. Steve & Sanet gave us a very warm welcome, and Lemmy their splendid Maid kept the suite both tidy and clean during our 5-night stay and provided a useful laundry service. This is an ideal base for exploring the Winelands of the Cape Peninsular whilst Cape Town can be reached by car within 20 minutes - outside Rush Hour !

Exceptional
We stayed here for 3 nights but wish it could have been much longer. It is situated in a quiet suburb away form the crowds and big hotels, but is centrally located in the peninsula, not far by car from the City, waterfront or the beaches. The rooms are extremely spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is there (down to a toothbrush if you forget yours). For self-catering, the shopping centre is just 5 min away and high quality food is available from Woolworths (like M&S Food in the UK). Steve has everything very well organised including the security and excellent housekeeping. Very highly recommended. We'll be back.

First class accommodation in a tranquil setting
We stayed here for 10 days in February, and can only describe the accommodation in superlatives. It is beautifully furnished and equipped, and serviced to an excellent standard by Lem who takes great pride in the quality of her work. The setting is beautiful, quiet and green, with sole use of a good-sized pool. Everything is designed to give guests maximum comfort, with outside eating areas and comfortable chairs wherever you might need them! The hosts are extremely hospitable and ensure that their guests want for nothing. We can only recommend this suite as an excellent choice for those people who want comfort and privacy, and plenty of space.

Exceptional place to stay in Constantia
We have just returned from a month in this outstanding guest suite with its own good sized pool. Fully equipped with all amenities and lots of little extras such as nail polish remover and nail polish in the cupboard! Powerful hairdryer provided. Better than a top suite in a hotel! Our daily housekeeper Lemm looked after us very well and the hosts Steve and Sanet are on hand for anything but out of sight otherwise. The property is well located for many local places as well as Cape Town. We will definitely return (so not sure we should be giving this such a great review!)
