About Marywood Cottage

Marywood Cottage is situated in the heart of the Constantia Valley of Cape Town, set in 1.5 acres of a beautiful tree-filled garden with rolling lawns, mainly indigenous plants, and fondly known by friends as mini Kirstenbosch. Your hosts Linda and Geoff look forward to making you feel most welcome in sharing this beautiful piece of the Constantia Valley with you.

This is a spacious, newly renovated B&B or self-catering cottage, completely private from the main house. It has a real home from home feel with all the luxury you can expect from a top 3 Star establishment. There is a large private fenced pool set at the bottom of the grounds and stunning views from all parts of the garden, especially from the cottage patio. This patio is surrounded by its own quaint garden with herbs and vegetables. Within walking distance are the renowned Constantia wine farms, and a short distance away are world-class restaurants, golf courses, horse riding, and shopping malls.

The cottage comprises of two double rooms both en-suite. The first double room has a king-size bed or two extra-length singles and a large wooden panelled bathroom with a spacious shower and bath. The second room has two single extra length beds and a bathroom with a large shower. The beds and linen are of the highest quality to ensure a restful stay. Both rooms can accommodate individuals, couples or large families comfortably while maintaining privacy between the two.

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...
