We had a wonderful stay at the Villa at Le Bonheur

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa at Le Bonheur. The unit was well furnished, comfortable and clean. It was everything we were looking for in terms of our needs. The outside pool was fantastic as well. Constantia is such a beautiful suburb to stay in. Thanks to Athol and his team for looking after us. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful and heartful place!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderbar zentral und ruhig gelegen und aufgrund der hervorragenden Küche, aber auch der excellenten Lage zu den vielen Restaurants bestens für Selbstversorger und andere Gäste geeignet. Athol und sein Team kümmern sich rührend um die Gäste und das Haus. Jako ist oft der "King" aller Gäste. Der Blick auf die Rückseite des Tafelberges zu allen Tageszeiten traumhaft, am schönsten zum Sonnenaufgang. Wir kommen 2018 gern wieder.

Owner's Response: "Thank you for the review it is always a pleasure to continue to maintain the High standard for our regular guests that come a few times a year to leBonheur a Place they Call "Home from Home". We offer a beautiful 6 bedroom Villa & Guest Suite to all our guests that is 5 Star & is continually maintained & upgraded to keep our guests happy. This review speaks for itself but this year we have done further upgrades by installing 36 Solar Electric panels with Dual 10 KW inverters almost getting us off the grid with battery back up to ensure our guests will have electricity when the Grid goes down when is seldom but it also enables us to run our Solar Heated Pool Pump & Solar Heated Jacuzzi pump during the day ensuring warm water for our large salt secluded pool & Jacuzzi. With our 3 enclosed Patios is great for entertaining Summer & Winter with our state of the Art Glass Sliding panels where our guests relax after a long day & still feel they are in Nature surrounded by a manicured Garden with an Abundance of Bird life & a Top Sundowner Deck which has amasing views of the Backdrop of Table Mountain & the surrounding Constantia Valley with its Top Class wine farms & Restaurants & close to Constantia Shopping centre for all your daily needs & just generally centrally situated to most of all the Tourist attractions & beaches in & around Cape Town.Well spread out Villa that you can host large or small groups not feeling you on top of one another & LeBonheur Means "The Happiness" come & joins us for one of your special Vacations in Cape Town where our staff will spoil you & assist you with all your daily needs. Thank you to all our regular guests part of the " LeBonheur Family "

Beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

Le Bonheur Guesthouse that sleeps 12 people is excellent for a big family. The rooms are neat, spacious and have all the necessary equipment. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is absolutely perfect for cooking a feast. All cutlery and utensils you can think of are available. The house is secure and has a beautiful garden and other facilities. The presence of the owner in the property also makes staying at the house very hospitable because he's always available to address issues as they arise. You won't be bothered by his presence because he stays at the back and will not be on your face. He's also very friendly. However, if it is the Jacuzzi and the heated pool that attracts you to the place, be sure to visit the place when the weather is hot because the solar power used by the property only provides those services when it's hot. Also inform the owner of your showering times because the geysers are timed in terms of when to start heating up the water. The fact that the TV's in the bedrooms only have minimal channels and what you watch in your room is determined by what the other guests in the other rooms want to watch is a minor issue because you can still get all channels in the main lounge. Cape Town is generally having water shortages and don't be surprised if you get there and you're restricted on the use of bath tubs. Nonetheless, my family had a great time at Le Bonheur Guesthouse and recommend it for families needing comfortable, spacious, quiet and friendly environment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on LeBonheur Villa & Guest Suite. It was a pleasure hosting this family for 3 nights at Lebonheur. Lebonheur is totally Green Friendly with use of Solar Energy as much as possible. With Solar heated Geysers 11 Solar Panels for the Large Solar Heated Pool & 4 Panels for the 8 seater Solar heated Jacuzzi. We have also undertaken a huge Solar Electric project this year that has virtually got us off the Grid with battery back up in case of Power failures to be self sustaining. As everyone in Cape Town knows the serious Water Shortage in the Western Cape with the Dams at 33.5% full compared to last year at 61.5% we may run out of drinkable water by March if we don't get more rain before the end of our rainy season which we are fast approaching. To avoid this we tell all our guests on arrival about the situation with pamphlets available & the Councils request to avoid bathing & take short showers. All hotels & Guest Houses are all standing together to avoid the Dams from drying up. We undertook a huge project to have our Borehole water Tested & with a good standard of water we have added filters to assure water for our guests that is also drinkable so that we are able to operate even if the water situation worsens. Never to forget that even the fact that we have a strong borehole to still use the water sparingly. We laise with our guests offering them weather updates etc & depending on the weather we recommend various things for them to do on a daily basis. With our solar geysers with timers we set the timers according to each guests needs assuring that they have hot water daily winter & summer. During the winter it is impossible to sustain pool & Jacuzzi tempratures especially at night so we cover up the pool every year during the Winter & when it warms up usually around 1 November we open up the Large pool using Daily solar energy & with our compulsory pool cover so to avoid evaparation & offer swimming temprature around 33 c & Jacuzzi with tempratures around 40c & there are instruction on how to get the most out of the Jacuzzi. When guests request accommodation during winter we reply advising them of the Winter Solar Heated & Solar heated jacuzzi but advise them that we are Winter & Summer Friendly with Wood burning Fireplaces & bedroom heating if necessary in winter & fans during Summer with our well Insulated & ventilated 5 Star Villa & Lime cottage with Large covered patios with state of the art stacking doors ideal Summer/Winter.

An excellent place to stay for a large group

  • 4 of 5

The property itself is an excellent place to stay, up to ~30mins drive from most of the best places to visit in cape town.

I recommend it for a large family, and we shall definitely look to visit again.

I will note that when you are making payment, avoid bank transfers, we had a problem with that and ended up losing half our deposit. Make sure you confirm all instructions on phone, email alone may not be safe enough.
