With beautiful views of the Constantia mountain and situated within the Constantia Wine-Route of Cape Town, your stay at South Lodge Cottage will be an enjoyable one. Whether it is sitting out on the patio by the swimming pool or relaxing in the tastefully decorated lounge, you will enjoy peace and quiet in this lovely self-contained cottage.

We are close to several fine golf courses, Steenberg, Royal Cape and Westlake, or you can enjoy wine-tasting at the historic Groot Constantia Estate, as well as several other Wine Estates in the Valley. There are a number of excellent restaurants in the area.  

A 15 minute drive will take you to False Bay on the Indian ocean, with many beautiful beaches and the quaint fishing village of Kalk Bay (restaurants, arts & crafts, antiques and collectables).  

A short drive in the other direction, over Constantia Nek, brings you to Hout Bay, another colourful fishing harbour, which then leads on to the Atlantic seaboard.   Perhaps stop-off at Constantia Nek, Cecelia, Silvermine or Tokai Forest for gentle mountain walks or hiking.   Cape Town International Airport is half an hour away, the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront only a 20 minute drive, and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens less than 10 minutes drive.
