A most enjoyable stay. All the staff were great, a very good vibe all round. I would most certainly recommend this facility to everyone. I do feel that a little bit of maintainable to the building , eg. Painting and carpets would then match the quality of service we received. Well done Shanaaz and Phaadiel.

Guesthouse is beautifully located in the wooded Constantia area, beautiful big garden and swimming pool, view on the mountains from our huge room (ask for room at the second floor on the garden side, with big balcony), sounds of the birds and peacocks in the morning, very friendly management staff, simple but good breakfast.

This place is absolutely breathtaking. The gardens are well kept, the service is incredible, and the views are magnificent. We were treated to front row seats while watching the weather around table mountain unfold and shift in a theatrical display of pastel colors. The memories are unforgettable, we will definitely be coming back :)

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).
