Review by Brian And Julie Noble (Guildford UK)

Beautiful cottage set in lovely grounds with a good sized pool. Great base for seeing Cape Town and surrounding areas. Would definitely recommend Marywood and hopefully will return for another visit.
Thanks again for your hospitality.

Review by FSHK (Hong Kong)

Very, very well done. Linda was exceptionally welcoming, the rooms were comfortable and very well appointed, with every amenity and lots of extra little touches aside, such as fresh fruit and coffee. Beautiful garden as well. I would absolutely come back here and would not hesitate to recommend it. For me the location was perfect (I needed to be around Constantia) but I think in general if you are wanting to stay in Cape Town but not necessarily be down town, it's well positioned. Very near to several vineyards and to some good restaurants.

Review by James Hubbard (Bakewell UK)

"A perfect recipe" Step one. Take a lovely 2 bed, 2 bath cottage, place in beautiful gardens, in Constantia, a safe, secluded and delightful area. Step 2. Decorate, furnish and equip it with great taste, style and panache.Step 3. Mix in 2 very warm and friendly owners (Linda and Geoff), a couple who definitely go that extra mile to ensure the comfort and well being of their guests and there you have it - "The Perfect recipe"
