It's located in a very convenient place, very comfortable to reach everywhere like Waterfront, wineries, beaches, but the cottage is surrounded by mountains and greens! Absolutely amazing place! And the host, Mark is really friendly, and provided us with lots of useful information. The staffs at the cottage also...

Third year in row, so I'll repeat my words; amazing place! great garden & pool. Lovely staff. Great location. Feels like a second home. Close to the city and other great places like Cheapmans Peak, Noordhoek, Camps Bay and Constantia. Angelica my all time favorite cottage.

We had a marvellous stay here with our young daughter. What we love most about these cottages is the blend of boutique hotel with the convenience and privacy of self-catering. The interiors are a welcome contrast to the multitude of frilly self-catering gigs in the area. They exude careful, simple design. Our bedrooms were very comfortable with acres of wardrobe...

We spent four days at the Tarragon in January at the start of 2 weeks in South Africa, staying in the Angelica cottage. It was a wonderful place to stay and we had a very warm welcome from Mark and all the staff. The cottage had stunning views from the huge terrace, and we enjoyed our breakfasts and evening barbecues...

We stayed for four nights at the beginning of my annual trip to SA. We were upgraded to the massive Thyme suite, which although it has an unorthodox layout, ended up brilliantly as I was able to invite a my South African friends to join us overnight. This was no problem for the host Mark, who was equally on hand...

Third time in the Tarragon with my family. We stayed 12 days. Simply wonderful, again. I invited some friends to visit : they want to stay there. What is the secret ? Beautiful garden and views, esp. when you are in the swimming pool, large and comfortable cottages, very calm with a lot of privacy, efficient and discreet service. Along...

We stayed at Tarragon for 4 days and we would have loved to stay longer in this such fabulous place. The Thyme cottage was exactly as described by Mark which communication was perfect from the first contact until our departure. The location is amazing with a wonderful view on the Table Mountain and an amazing vegetation. The place is perfectly...
