An amazing garden oasis in Constantia - De Verwaalde Boer is like a home away from home. Excellent accommodation, great facilities and fantastic hosts makes this a destination I will definitely return to. We enjoyed 5 nights in this magical place and found it very central to a host of world class restaurants, forests, beaches and wine estates. Highly recommended...

Amazing place to stay for a short or longer day close to Cape Town and the Southern Cape vineyards. Ultimate luxury, with swimmingpool, tennis court, spacious rooms and extremely friendly hosts. Don't forget the winecellar!

We spent nearly three weeks in this beautiful guesthouse set in immaculately maintained, landscaped and spacious grounds. The location in Upper Constantia is so peaceful and secure - one of the most sought after areas of the village. Architecturally a most attractive Dutch thatched Cape-style manor house built in 2008, the interior is furnished to the highest standard with a...

This perfectly located private guesthouse is just one of those places you would rather like to keep to yourself... Located in beautiful and lush Constantia, you overlook Cape Town on one side (especially amazing at night), while having the mountain range on the other side. With many fantastic wine estates on your doorstep, great restaurants within a few minutes drive,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the outskirts of Cape Town, immediately adjacent to one of the most beautiful wine producing areas of South Africa, you will find De Verdwaalde Boer. This dream villa is located in a unique spot in Constantia, with a view of False Bay and the back of the famous Table Mountain. The villa offers an abundance of luxury, perfect privacy and a wide range of modern facilities. The spacious garden contains not only many trees and a veritable rainbow of indigenous flowers but also an authentic vineyard where Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown. The villa boasts seven bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom, a charming living room, a beautiful kitchen and three fireplaces. The splendid wine cellar is filled with the very best South African wines. Enjoying a real South African barbeque (braai) on the terrace alongside the villa and admiring the constellation-filled sky is one of the most memorable experiences of Africa. In De Verdwaalde Boer you can do this in style and comfort and in an ideal atmosphere. Although you do not sleep in a hotel, nonetheless your bed is made for you each day. This, and much, much more is within easy reach. ... more   less
