“Lovely, Comfortable, Restful and wonderful hospitality”
Reviewed 1 October 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Athol and Tammy accommodated me at very short notice and in the middle of winter when they weren't really open - their hospitality and helpfulness was greatly appreciated. I had a wonderfully nurturing two days there - amidst rainstorms - but was kept warm and snug in a lovely comfortable cottage that contained everything I needed. Thank you both again for a great time and your warm welcome. I can highly recommend this lovely abode!

Thank you for your 5 star review it is always a pleasure to hear from our guests who give us positive & negative feedback so we can continue the High Standard or amend or improve on any of your suggestions.
We are centrally situated to most of the popular tourist attractions in & around Cape Town 25 Minutes from Cape Town International Airport & 25 Minutes to the Popular waterfront & the Famous Table Mountain and about 20 minutes to most of the popular Beaches in & around Cape Town including the Popular Boulders Penguin Beach in Simonstown on you way to Cape Point We had 12 of the Top Famous Constantia Wine farms within 5-10 minutes as we are situated in the Constantia Valley with Spectacular Views of the backdrop of Table Mountain with popular Hiking & Bike Trails as well as Horse Riding trials. 4 of the popular Rated Golf courses & 2.5 km from the Constantia Shopping Centre for all you daily needs as well as top Restaurants in the area.
The Villa consists of 6 Double Bedrooms including the Guest suite which comfortably sleeps 12 Guests well spread out so you don't feel on top of one another in this spacious LeBonheur.

Our Large Solar Heated Pool & Solar Heated jacuzzi are popular with our guests to swim or just lie around the pool on our recliners overlooking our manicured Garden. We also have Filtered Borehole water & Electric Solar panels so we are virtually off the Grid which has being a blessing with the Water restrictions over the last 6 months although this winter we have being Blessed with Good Winter Rains.Our friendly staff are here to assist you and make your stay relaxing & memorable & will spoil you during your stay making it a true Holiday to remember.
We are Lucky to get a lot of our guests returning annually or as often as they can confirming that we have got the right recipe at LeBonheur which in French which means " The Happiness " We will guide you with weather updates & advise you on things to do to suit you needs.
Looking forward to you joining us at LeBonheur on your Next Visit to Cape Town " The Mother City "

Thank you for your valued review. We know we have won the hearts of our guests when they leave us a five-star review, yet there is always room for improvement, and we like to encourage continued feedback.When you return on your next vacation, you will see some changes. Our quirky African Grey parrot is always on top form on the entertainment front and proves a hit with his 'extended' visiting family. Rain or shine, Le Bonheur offers cosy nights in, in front of the fireplace, which you experienced when the heavens opened with the much needed rains Cape Town has been praying for. Also, you lapped up the sun, lounging around the solar heated pool and jacuzzi when the sunshine peeped through the clouds. So glad you had a relaxing, fun-filled holiday, creating many a memorable moment.

“Lovely villa but not private”
Reviewed 20 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018
1
person found this review helpful

This is a large beautiful villa with everything you could want for a self catering stay in peaceful area. BedRooms were large and very comfortable and plenty of them even if our party did not use them all. The downside to this beautiful villa is that it is not totally private as some of the online sites would lead you to believe. The pool and Jacuzzi and garden is not just for the villa but can be used by other guests staying at the separate cottages beside the villa and can be quite intrusive if you are sitting in your villa with strangers outside or up on top of the roof terrace right outside what you thought was your private space. The owner Athol is very friendly and helpful but again always on site so you never totally feel you have the villa to yourself. jacko the parrot also resides in the villa so you have to get used to that too. So if your are looking for peace and quiet and privacy this is not the place for you but if you don't mind mixing with strangers outside your doors then it's a great villa. Wifi was very intermittent around the villa and slow. The jacuzzi was way too hot for us to use. I think it would be better with few boundaries set for guest at the villa and then the separate cottages.

Thank you for your review we value all our reviews & acknowledge what you say & strive to improve most if not all of your problems you may have had & will also respond to them Individually.Please note we have being running LeBonheur Guest House & Cottages for 14 years successfully & are still striving for perfection.
Firstly as can be seen on Tripadvisor in the last 3 years we have had 18 5 Star reviews & only TWO 3 Star reviews.
This tells me we are doing things well yet although I know you can please everyone we will carry on striving till we get 100% success.
The 5 Star Villa had 6 Double bedrooms & very comfortably as they said sleep 12.
Please note there were only 5 in there group 4 Ladies & a gentleman.
Around the Solar Heated Pool we have always had % comfortable recliners which is more than ample for all our guests at LeBonheur including the cottages.
Please note the cottages each have 2 Recliners.
We advertise in our response to our enquiries that only the Large 11 X 5 Solar Heated pool as well as the Jacuzzi & Top Sundowner Patio with views of the Backdrop of Table Mountain are communal. The Large Front Garden & Manicured Garden are for the Main Villa & Guest Suite Only.
98 % of guests will only use the Solar Heated Pool Very seldom do the guests from the Cottages use the Jacuzzi or Top Sundowner Patio.
The Solar Heated Pool is on the West Side of the property mostly away from the main House. The Main House & Guest Suite have their own entrance in the front of the property.
The Cottages each have their own entrances & Patio's with BBQ facilities at each Cottage therefore we have pleased 18 out of 20 guests in the last 3 years.
For the 1st Time in 14 years the 5 guests spent most of their 5 day stay Lying on the front Lawn Suntanning which is exclusive to the main Villa & Guest Suite so they used up all 5 of the recliners that are always available.
We had a lovely couple staying in Lime Cottage with a Four year old son who spent an hour in the morning & sometimes an hour in the afternoon teaching their lovely well behaved son how to swim which has being a success story for many of our guests coming from the Cooler Northern Hemishphere having the opportunity to teach their young children how to swim I can't end to tell you how many parents over the years have memories of their children learning to swim in a warm pool & build up confidence. To resolve the issue of the shortage of 2 recliners we just moved the 2 recliners from Lime cottage to The Shallow end of the Pool which is far away from the Front Garden.
Just Getting back to Jacko our Friendly & entertaining African Grey who loves everybody.
I find it very strange with the guests comment you just had to get used to Him. The 4 Ladies loved him & would Tickle & Scratch him & became very attached with him that they joked about taking him home with them.
Just for the record we have only had 2 lots of Guests that did not like Jacko out of over 200 guests. We do offer the option to guests to move him down into my 2 Bedroom Cottage. Please note that the other 3 Star Review was from one of those two 3 Star reviews but there child had an allergy but most people love animals.
Getting onto the part of the review were they said that Athol the Owner was very friendly & Helpful yes when guests arrive one has to show them how all the things work Glass Sliding Doors Remotes Automatic Gates beams TV DSTV & Wi-Fi. I was called on at least 2 occasions to put up the Umbrellas & on the one occasion where they said Poor Wi-Fi they were note able to get a Netflix Movie up & Running on our New 65 ins TV only for me to discover that they had unplugged one of the Wi-Fi Extenders once that was sorted they were as happy as Larry withe the Large TV as were as Fibre Optic fast Internet.
Yes we are a Green energy Waterwise Guest House With use of almost everything on Solar Power why Not we have the Sun in South Africa so as with the Pool we have 11 Solar Panels & 4 for the jacuzzi that on warm days we switch on the Jacuzzi pump on from 9am- 3pm & it normally heats up the Jacuzzi with Sun Energy to around 40c
But over their stay we had unusually hot days which they Loved the South African Sun so they could have just taken the Solar Cover or Pool Cover off or asked me to switch off the Jacuzzi pump it is as easy as that.In Cape Town with the Strict Water restrictions it is compulsory for every house with a pool & jacuzzi to have covers to stop evaporation from the Sun & Wind. We have now put up Signs in BOLD LETTERS around the Pool to cover up when not in use.
We are fortunate enough to have thought ahead of the Water Crisis in Cape Town to have plumbed our Tested Borehole into the Villa & Cottages so we will still have water if Cape Town runs out of Water in the next 100 days properly tested with Filters & UV light safe to even drink.
One of the 5 guests had some of his friends one afternoon come around for a swim as their guest house in Simonstown did not have water in the pool. Yes many guest houses & Hotels where you share a Pool with all the Guests in the Hotel have closed their pools due to the shortage of Water in Cape Town. Yes we also advise our guests about the strict water restrictions now Schedule 6B to use water sparingly.
We at Lebonheur last year installed 36 Solar panels with 2 X 10 KW Hybrid inverters to virtually get of the Grid & in case of a Blackout supply lighting etc to our guests. yes we are continually striving to make our Guest House the Top Guest House in The Western Cape & Constantia Valley & will move Recliners when need be & implement some basic rules thank you for that advice & we hope that we can assist you with 5 Star accommodation in the future. On a final note when the guests book accommodation we do remind them all that the Pool & Jacuzzi are communal & never ever really have had any problems as you see with 98% positive 5 Star Reviews & even if guests during their stay give us positive feedback which we encourage we get stuck into it & improve or Fix.
Thank you for your Positive & negative feedback it is for the benefit of all future & returning guests Lebonheur Management

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa at Le Bonheur. The unit was well furnished, comfortable and clean. It was everything we were looking for in terms of our needs. The outside pool was fantastic as well. Constantia is such a beautiful suburb to stay in. Thanks to Athol and his team for looking after us. Would definitely stay again.

It is always to please a large group of Great Hosts on a 14 Day Peak time booking.
We strive during the year to upgrade systems such as the impending Water shortage in Cape Town by adding the system with Filters professionally done so our guests will never be compromised. We do have notices out asking our guests to Respect Cape Town's Water crisis to try short showers instead of bathing.
We also upgraded with Solar Electric system with 2 X 10 KW Hybrid Inverters to almost get Lebonheur off the Grid & have Battery Back Up in case of Eskom Outages. Making sure The Villa & Guest Suite is maintained to the Highest Standards giving us 5 Star rating this is only achived with hard work from a dedicated Staff. Thank you to them as well. With 6 Double Bedrooms with Large groups you are never on top of one another well spread out for Large or Smaller groups.
We ask our Guests to please advise if there are any problems so that we can fix it immediately.Centrally Situated in Upper Constantia Security is also top of our list making sure with our High walls with extra security in a secure road our guests feel safe able to wander for Walks Runs Cycles in our surrounding Green belts & close to the mountain for amasing trials.Our Solar Large Solar heated Pool & Solar Heated Jacuzzi Inside & Outside Bars 3 Spacious Patios enclosed with State of the Art Stacking Doors Ideal for Summer & Winter Destinations & close to the Airport Most Popular Beaches Waterfront Table Mountain & Boulders Penguin Beach In Simonstown on your way to Cape Point & most of the Popular Tourist spots in & around Cape Town give us top spot as a vacation in the Constantia Valley getting loads of repeat bookings.
Please join us for you special holiday for you & your Family please try book early to avoid Disappointment. Thank you once again LeBonheur Management.
