Situated in Upper Constantia at the bottom of a quiet, brick paved cul-de-sac is the peaceful retreat that is KAAPSE DRAAI.
Guests are welcomed to the tranquil beauty of the garden and the tastefully decorated interior by Annelie and her right-hand Engela. Together they are more than qualified to see that your every need is catered for, from impeccably kept rooms and fine bed linen to refreshments in the lush garden, from delightful breakfasts to sumptuous suppers on request.
A limited number of guests - Annelie tries not to book more than six people in at a time - ensures that service is always personal, and new friendships are quickly formed around the breakfast table.
Years ago Kaapse Draai used to be a protea nursery and, even though you won't find proteas, the garden retained an air of vibrant richness. Age-old oaks, palms and tropical vegetation line the little mountain stream that winds its way down from the southern slopes of Table Mountain. The garden rambles on into a 'green belt' of undisturbed meadow running through the whole of Constantia.
The rooms are situated on the second storey of this gracious home, and are reached via a central staircase. One room has a separate entrance from the garden.
All rooms are equipped with tea trays and bar fridges, television and have en-suite bathrooms. Three rooms offer twin beds and one a double bed. All bathrooms have showers, and one is also furnished with a bath.
Downstairs you'll find an airy lounge at your disposal, while breakfast is served either in the dining room or on the patio.
The four double, en-suite rooms are all individually decorated but share the same air of calmness and ease. Natural fabrics in rich creams brightened with unexpected touches of colour make the rooms a delight to spend time in. Curl up on a window seat in the late afternoon sun with a good book and a cup of tea, or enjoy sundowners on the private balconies overlooking the garden and ever-present mountain.
Delicious breakfasts of seasonal fruits, yogurt, cereals, toast and tea or coffee are served.
Relax in our beautiful lush garden in the shade of an enormous oak tree.
