My husband and I often come to Cape Town to visit family and for a break, but we have truly found a gem. I am almost hesitant to write this as I fear Marywood will be booked all the time. The cottage is in the back of the premises, completely private with a separate entrance, french doors onto a private patio and garden with all the amenities you would need. A full kitchenette, which makes self-catering a breeze, plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, daily cleaning, DStv and wifi. Marywood is a piece of heaven complete with a pair of guinea fowl roaming in the garden. Linda and Geoff are wonderful hosts, popping out just when you need them, but otherwise you would believe you were the only ones there. Constantia is a gorgeous place and only 10-15 minutes from Cape Town, so you get both the country and city feel in one. You could walk (if so inspired) to the wine farms from Marywood and there is a lovely pub and shopping centre within 5 minutes. We will definitely be back many times.
