A hidden gem in Constantia. Stunning setting and the most amazing staff. Thanks to Phaadiel and Shanaaz for their friendly hospitality and excellent service. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Constantia.

I spent 5 nights at the Southern Light Country house with Shanaaz and her Italian friend Fabio. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the setting is beautiful. Breakfast times were adjusted to my specification on the different days, my laundry was ironed, good filter coffee in the room, free wifi - a really pleasant stay.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Cape Town and it was very comfortable. It's in a nice, green, suburb about 30 minutes from the town centre and has some lovely gardens to explore and for the kids to muck about in (it has a pool, trampoline etc). Claudio, the manager there (not his real name apparently, but that's...

This is a beautiful house in a wonderful part of South Africa. Marina is a hospitable, warm and caring host, without being overbearing. Excellent facilities, an extensive top-notch breakfast - I wish I could have stayed longer!

The guest house itself is truely beautiful and we would definately love to stay there again. I made the booking under the impression that there was an Aircon in the room. After checking in we discovered that there wasnt one. When I queried it I was told that the house was fully booked and nothing could be done.

Very poor, no alcohol on site, room dark and old fashioned, not enough shelf space around wash basin, fan not working, poor lighting, dangerous sockets needs more mirrors to make up, room just a hell hole, only good thing was the breakfast.
