“lovely place with stunning views...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

we had the pleasure of staying at Constantia Vista recently. The place is immaculate and nothing is to much trouble for the owner Ian. We stayed in the Penthouse apartment which was very nice. It was serviced everyday and included extra touches like a lovely bottle of wine and chocolate. I would definitely stay here again.

June 2013 - Not the best time of year to visit Cape Town but due to family circumstances , unavoidable. I stayed at this eclectic guest house for a total of 8 days and could not have been made more welcome than if I was returning home after a long absence. Ian the owner, together with his two staff and wonderful dogs makes this beautiful dwelling a home from home. I stayed in two different apartments, as I first stayed 4 days and then off to the West Coast for a while and then back for a further four days before returning to Australia. They were both as delightful as each other , and as it was so cold - gas heaters, electric blankets and extra blankets were just rolled in. The view is breathtaking from every area of this residence and the apartments are tastefully decorated and absolutely spotless. There was a bottle of red and chocolates to greet you Ian is always on hand to help with anything that is required- even arranged a driver to and from the airport. Would I stay again - you bet - value for money and delightful company. I hope to return in summer together with my eldest son to visit my elderly parents who live nearby and take advantage of the stunning pool , braai area and jacuzzi. Will tell all my friends about this idyllic oasis.

I spent a total of 28 days in the View Cottage. What a wonderful experience. The cottage is by far one of the best units available. The name says it all with a breathtaking views of Constantia Valley.
The unit has great facilities, with your own personal bar, and outside BBQ area and lapa area. Your own cascading Koi fish pond and of course a Jacuzzi right on the deck to take in the breathtaking view. The bedroom is very well decorated and the Spa bath is an added bonus. The shower is very spacious also. The Kitchen has all the amenities you need. The is even an outside shower for those hot summer days. The staff are very friendly and considerate they do a very good job as to not interfere with your stay and will service the apartment when you out doing your shopping or sightseeing.
Ian the Host is most friendly and very accommodating. He will try his best to make everybody feel right at home, and I love the happy go lucky dogs who will always come to greet you in the morning.
Overall a fantastic place to just kick back and relax!
Thanks Ian and your staff !
I will most definitely be back soon.
Cheers

I stayed in the apartment and had everything I could possibly need. The view is incredible, with complete privacy. Ian is extremely obliging should you need anything not already provided. I would have no trouble recommending Constantia Vista to anyone looking for somewhere top stay in Cape Town.

We stayed in the penthouse apartment which has amazing views towards the South over overcountryside, vineyards and distant towns towards the mountains and the sea at False Bay. There are two large patio doors, a huge deck and even a full length window in the shower to make the best use of the views. Fortunately you are not overlooked! We only stayed for three nights, so you could say that the apartment was over-equipped for such a short stay as it included a washing machine and a huge array of storage cupboards. It would be suitable for a long stay. Secure parking close to the apartment, and a helpful owner who lives on site complete the perfect picture.

my family and i stayed in this beautiful place for 2 weeks while on holiday in cape town, although not child friendly Ian welcomed our 2 year old daughter and made every provision to make her stay comfortable and fun. we stayed in the Vista Apartment for 4 nights which has every amenity you would need, and a beautiful window view over cape town from the shower! Ian must have read my mind as the cold Castle Beers he had stocked in the fridge were just what the doctor ordered after 24 hours of traveling.
We were then moved to the Pool Apartment for the remainder of our holiday. This apartment was bigger than the first and had a separate open plan lounge/kitchen from the bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with every pot and pan you may need for a self catering accommodation. All the rooms were tastefully decorated and the shower was huge enough for a family of four to fit. Outside boasts an attractive entertainment lappa and the little splash pool was perfect for our little girl. Ian's staff have to be mentioned; both Samantha and Siya were absolute gems and were always on hand to help. Uggy and Hutch Ian's best friends and faithful dogs were like siblings to our daughter and they made lots of noise together.
Would return to this beautiful spot again without a doubt. Big thank you to Ian for being so welcoming and to Samantha, Siya, Uggy and Hutch.

We (us and our 11 year old son) stayed there last week. as they say...location, location, location. For a family visiting Cape Town who want to stay away from the noise but in a idyllic location, I cannot recommend this more. 20 minutes drive from the V&A waterfront...well you would need your own vehicle in Cape Town if you are there on a half decent holiday. It overlooks the Constantia valley and the Groot Constantia vineyard with the False Bay in the background. The nearby Constantia village shopping centre has everything that an upmarket place would contain. Ian is a great host; has hundreds of stories to tell. The staff has instructions to wake him up at 3 am if guests request. My son fell in love with the 2 dogs. We stayed in the main house; it is immaculately maintained and spacious, has character written all over. Highly recommended!!
