We stayed at Thyme apartment with our two kids. Even though the layout of the apartment is slighly funky, it worked perfectly for us. There was so much space, rooms were really big, nicely decorated with excellent beds! The apartment has direct view to the pool area which was perfect for wathcing the kids swim. Yet it felt private, with...

After more than 6 years we came back to Mark's place & enjoyed it so much. The place is a paradise, very clean, very calm, very well maintained. Great pool and apartment, we'll come back in 2018 again!

What an absolute gem of a place! Situated on the back side of table mountain near Hout Bay up in the pine forest. Fabulous 360 degree views over the valley and the back of Table Mountain. Lovely serviced and self contained cottage with excellent facilities, including the views from the patio out the front of the cottage. It also has...

The first thing that strikes you about staying in one of the 5 cottages that make up Tarragon's self catering accommodation is, that like us, every group of guests appears to be repeat visitors, often multiple times. This is probably down to three main reasons: (1) Great setting/location (2) Privacy/amenities (3) Value for money. If you are are group of...

We had a wonderful stay at The Tarragon. Very helpful staff, great setting, well appointed accommodation and very peaceful. The pool area is lovely and the cottage also had its own large private terrace. We had everything we needed to self cater but it's also within easy reach of great restaurants in Hout Bay and Constantia.

I have stayed at the Tarragon three times now in the last two years as we have taken full advantage of our currency versus the rand. The Tarragon for me is pure relaxation away from it all, and that is exactly what it is. The location and view is perfect and I promise myself I will never get tired of...

The Tarragon exceeded all expectations, we've been back 3 times in 2 years! The setting is beautiful, the views are stunning, it's peaceful yet close to Hout Bay, shops and restaurants nearby. It's also only half an hour from the city centre, but feels a world away. Good security and also privacy, we had the pool to ourselves much of...
