We had a great vacation start for our South Africa trip. Our room was very nice and the garden well maintained. Marina & her staff was very friendly and helpful. If you like to stay in Constanzia, we can recommend this B&B.

A great accommodation in a superb surrounding. Great service and wonderful people, who fulfilled my wishes before I asked. The room was huge with a bathroom one could get lost. The garden lush and colorful and the pool a very soothing place to be.

The Southern Light guesthouse staff were very welcoming, polite and helpful throughout my five day visit. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the garden is delightful with many beautiful roses. The pool area is very pretty with trees around it to set it apart from the main house. Staff served a delicious breakfast. The guesthouse is not really within...

If you are looking for a lovely guest house in this area, look no further. Marina the manageress is exceptional - she takes such good care of her guests that I thought she had to be the owner. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Our well travelled grandchildren (8 and 10) were made to feel at home. The breakfast...

Great location with stunning view. Beautiful garden. Executive room large, clean & quiet. Breakfast : very good choice for both continental & cooked offered Guest relations badly needs improvement, only spend 3 nights during which there were quite a few issues, which could have easily avoided if there was a bit more professionalism in the running of the guest house....

My stay was great. The Manager was very accommodating and made sure my needs were met. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The location was quiet and very secure and very convenient to my travels around Cape Town. The breakfasts were superbly prepared. I couldn't have asked for a better stay!

This house is located in a lovely private location and we were given a beautiful spacious room that looked over the garden. We had a few issues though; firstly there was not enough hot water for everyone to take showers and baths at similar times (which is difficult if you are part of a tour group as these times are...
