Constantia Cottages | Cape Town
The Constantia Cottages are located in the heart of the famous and most beautiful suburb of Cape Town, Constantia, amid the green vines of the oldest Winelands on the Cape, close to many of the renowned Cape restaurants. It offers close access to the main motorways and is only two minutes away from "Constantia Village" and "Constantia Emporium" with supermarkets, boutiques and restaurants. The beaches and golf courses at False Bay can be reached in a 20-minute drive and the city of Cape Town in just over 30 minutes.
All apartments and cottages have an open kitchen to the living room/area, which is equipped with high-quality appliances such as a large fridge/freezer, a ceramic or induction hob, an extractor hood, a microwave oven and a sink and all the small but essential kitchen tools. The larger residential units also have an oven, washing machine, tumble dryer and/or dishwasher.
The two large apartments have two separate bedrooms, the larger of the junior suites has a separate bedroom. The two smaller properties are one-room apartments, i.e., a combined living, sleeping, dining area, and kitchen unit. Powerful air conditioning units ensure the right room temperature. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, which has a bathroom cabinet with a washbasin and a shower cubicle or a walk-in shower; some also have a bathtub, a room heater and a heated towel rail.
In the apartments and in the entire outdoor area, guests have a fast, data volume-unlimited 200mbps/100mbps fibre optic connection to the Internet. For further entertainment, smart TVs with a screen diagonal of up to 143cm are available, which are directly connected to the Internet. Some streaming services are pre-assigned for a free reception.
Our guests have access to the lush garden, which is illuminated with lamps and spotlights at night. Sun loungers with side tables and parasols are available by the swimming pool. Our Pool Bar and the Barbecue Area with Weber kettle grill, a stone seating area with fluffy cushions and an open fireplace invite you to linger.
The 45 square meters solar-heated swimming pool is available to all guests, which is illuminated at night with spotlights under the water's surface. A robot, which can also be called a "vacuum cleaner in the water", ensures the permanent cleaning of the pool. A protective tarpaulin ensures that water evaporation is largely reduced during swimming breaks and at night.
Our security concept consists of four components
- Burglar protection with stable entrance doors and double-glazed windows,
- Extensive lighting of the entire property, which creates a great atmosphere at night,
- Elaborate alarm system with motion detectors in the entire outdoor area, which is connected to a security service, as well
- Video surveillance around the building with 16 cameras.
We are largely independent of the public system with our water supply and use our own well water for gardens, swimming pools and other requirements. A highly efficient heat pump supplies us with hot water distributed over an energy-saving ring main. The process water from the bathrooms is roughly cleaned and pumped into the garden via a specially installed pipe system.
