Guest House

Upper Constantia is a wonderfully designed single-level and fully self-contained guesthouse at the foot of Table Mountain. 3 bedrooms all en-suite sleep up to six people, and a private pool with 150sqm sun deck provide for best outdoor entertainment.

Tree furns and about 3,000sqm of rolling lawnsLocated in one of the oldest suburbs of Cape Town, Upper Constantia is set on the most spectacular walking, running, hiking and mountain bike trails in the magnificent Constantia Wine Route District and a short 5-minute drive Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden which is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world.

The spacious single level guest house is nestled by beautiful oak trees and has a large north facing sun terrace. From Bel Ombre Road entrance you will enjoy your own private driveway through a remote controlled gate. There is ample parking with w garages and enough space for at least 4 additional cars. Should you have any friends or family visiting, there is a pedestrian gate, which they can ring and you will be able to answer and remotely buzz them in.

After entering the guest house you will find a lovely oversized north-facing terrace that partially wraps around the guesthouse on one side, and on the other side has a 150sqm sun deck with a 7x4m private swimming pool, which was added in 2014. If the sun is too much there is a draw back pergola otherwise you can soak up the sun on the outside loungers or seated around an outdoor dining table. Through the main door you will enter into the beautifully big open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area, furnished with all your could need for a night in watching DSTV on latest 3D LED Screen, or enjoying a night of cooking and entertaining.
