In Constantia, a semi-rural suburb around twenty minutes' drive to the south of the city. This guest house is convenient for visitors keen to explore the Constantia Valley and its varied offerings.
The suites at this property are very spacious and dressed in a variety of soft fabrics and finishes and easy-on-the-eye colours. The bathrooms are open plan to the bedroom and some feature quite beautiful hand-finished mosaics. Some of the suites have their own splash-pools and each has a terrace. Privacy is paramount.
The beautiful gardens and large pool terrace are worthy of a mention and there is also a spacious lounge for relaxing indoors.
Eating and drinking
Accommodation is on a bed and breakfast basis and the helpful staff will gladly serve lunch and dinner by arrangement or will happily make reservations at any of the local eateries (there is a family pub and restaurant situated a few minutes' walk from the property).
The Last Word Collection group owns its own motor yacht which can be chartered and the enthusiastic staff will arrange any leisure activities in and around the Cape peninsula.
Their personalised approach sets them apart.
Who stays there
