We found the house on Trip advisor and whilst Constantia was not our first choice in Cape Town for our Family vacation, it turned out to be a wonderful bit of luck. The house is ideally located for exploring the Cape peninsular with relatively easy access to the city itself and its many attractions. You will need a car though as it is not convenient to any public transport connections that we observed.
The property is well equipped and although we originally booked for a party of 6, Albert was able willing to provide us with an additional bed that accommodated my other son visiting from London, the large house is very comfortable and well equipped in terms of crockery, cutlery etc. as we chose to cook for ourselves most days.
We stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed our family reunion (we invited my father to stay here with the four of us). Every day this house was our quiet island in the midst of a vibrant town. The kids shared one bedroom, my wife and I shared one and my father had one bedroom on his own. The living and dining area is very spacious, as is the kitchen. It already got quite cold in the evenings but how wonderful it was to be able to use the floor heating!!! The garden and the pool are bigger as we expected them to be and sitting by the pool or looking out of your bedroom glasdoor you can see the table mountains! The house is generously equipped with almost everything and the contact with Lyn (who manages the house) was warm heartedly and easy going.
It really was a very intensive trip and we did it all (table mountain, robben island, peninsula, ... ). How wonderful it was to come back into our warm home in the evening and just relax and cook together. We all highly recommend this place and we hope to be able to come back soon.
