Lovely location for larger groups staying together
Everything fine. Very friendly host. The five of us stayed in the cottage and could have nice privacy while at the same time enjoy the excellent communal areas (bars/pool/kitchen/living room) with the rest of the family. Cleaning and washing was top-notch.
Thank you for your Valued Review. We have had families staying with us, all attending weddings in the Constantia Valley and have all had a memorable experience staying with us here at LeBonheur, the perfect holiday for your extended family and friends who have soaked up the hot Summer days and enjoyed the various attractions and wine farms in the region.
We are delighted you found Lime Cottage conveniently placed a few steps away from the main Villa, spacious with all the comforts for a relaxed large family vacation, a short driving distance to Constantia Village, a one- stop convenience shopping center with a variety of stores, restaurants and coffee shops and gas station.
Lime cottage - excellent property and service
We had a great time both in the spacious Lime cottage which was kept clean and tidy by the wonderful staff. Communal areas are excellent with bars, huge flat screen jacuzzi and a good sized warm pool. Beautiful garden and rooftop terrace with mountain view. City is in easy reach via car or you can pop down to the constantia mall in just 5 minutes.
Thank you for your review for Lime Cottage. The Cottage is ideal for a family of four. The open plan lounge, kitchen area is spacious and lends itself to relaxed family living. The pool is a hit with all who enjoy the hot summer days. Being Solar heated, the pool's temperature is ideal, despite weather conditions.
Our view of the Constantia berg - backdrop of Table Mountain, makes for many a postcard memory, and the rooftop terrace is the perfect spot for a sundowner or two.
Great Location, Stunning Views, Fantastic Host
We had a great stay at LeBonheur over Christmas and New Year.
Our daughter was married at Steenberg and both sides of the family shared the main house.
It was great to have the maid service particularly on the day of the wedding with 6 shirts to iron!
We had booked the house a full three years in advance and Athol and Tamara had done everything possible to help us source suppliers and generally put our minds at ease.
At the last minute some friends had issues with their booked accommodation in Hout Bay and Athol and Tamara pulled out all the stops to assist and let them move into Lemon cottage at very short notice.
The house itself is in a stunning setting, the views from the top terrace are very special indeed. Although the pool and hot tub are shared with the other cottages, this was not an issue for us. There are eight padded sun loungers and plenty of other lounging chairs.
The grounds are perfect for a family BBQ (Braai!) and the prices of meat etc in the supermarket are very reasonable.
Jacko the parrot provided plenty of entertainment to us all and Tamara’s dog Stretch also visited to play around the pool.
We found the location to be very convenient, although you do need to drive to get anywhere, there are plentiful restaurants and a shopping centre within 10 minutes. The Waterfront, Hout Bay and Newlands are all an easy 20-25 minute drive. Then of course it is in the middle of the Constantia wine route – it would be rude not to.
After all the holidays and the family celebrations, you must be happy to be back home and settling back into normality so to speak. It was a pleasure, to host you and your extended family for such an auspicious occasion. Having the Villa serviced regularly for such a large group is beneficial to all as you are on vacation and the last thing on one's mind should be to clean up behind you. Its a time for rest and relaxation. We do what we can to 'iron out the creases' (no pun intended) to make your holiday experience as seamless as possible. Outstanding Customer service excellence is key, we bridge the gap as and where it is needed, be it assisting with transport, catering needs or confirming memorable tour experiences, it all ties up a perfect package with a pretty bow. The estate lends itself to a relaxed family atmosphere where everyone can enjoy the swimming pool and Al fresco dining & BBQ (Braai) during the Summer months. We are a short drive, but a picturesque and scenic one at that, to all attractions, restaurants, beaches and the main motorway which allows direct access into the Cape Town City Bowl. The Constantia Wine Route on our door step proves fruitful for those who have developed a taste for fine South African Wine in our region. We find that our guests love Jacko's (our African Grey) jolly banter as well as Stretch's ever present mischievous smile and wagging tail. They are special little characters that add a unique unexpected touch to your memorable holiday experience. We would love to see you come back time and time again.
Great location, beautiful views
We were a big group and rented out most of the units. It worked well and was a very sociable setting for a family event. It was an excellent base and Tamara and Athol were great hosts. We hope to be back soon as we had an amazing break.
Guests are always delighted to find how central our location is, here in Constantia, with open and free access to the main motorways where visiting the City Bowl and Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is a breeze, unlike Peak periods where Camps Bay tends to be grid-locked. The point of a well-deserved vacation, like yours, visiting the Cape for a Family Wedding and co-ordinating the rendezvous points for big groups should be effortless and as stress free as possible and we observed you managed to do so with ease.
It was a pleasure hosting you and your extended family and friends and look forward to welcoming you back.

Lovely, secluded, quiet and restful
Athol and Tammy accommodated me at very short notice and in the middle of winter when they weren't really open - their hospitality and helpfulness was greatly appreciated. I had a wonderfully nurturing two days there - amidst rainstorms - but was kept warm and snug in a lovely comfortable cottage that contained everything I needed. Thank you both again for a great time and your warm welcome. I can highly recommend this lovely abode!
Thank you for your valued review. We are always ready to create a warm Winter welcome here in the heart of Constantia. While we are thankful for the much needed rain, we managed to create a welcoming atmosphere. The Villa and cottages are ideal for both Summer and Winter rentals. Yours was a brief visit and we hope to see you next time with some of your friends and family, to make full use of the extended Villa with its indoor/outdoor entertainment area as well as our solar heated pool and Jacuzzi.
You were snug in the cottage, which suited your needs, with its fully equiped open plan Kitchen, dining and lounge area with flat-screen television.
