WATERFORD GUEST HOUSE
Waterford Guest House can be found amid the rolling historic vineyards of the idyllic Constantia Valley in the southern suburbs of Cape Town.
Since 2001, we have offered a comfortable haven to all discerning travellers, whether you are here for business or looking to explore the wonders of the Cape.
Your hosts, Chris and Alison, are at hand to assist in planning your stay or answer any queries you may have. They have extensive knowledge of the Cape Peninsula and will gladly assist you in making those difficult decisions, such as which wine farm to visit, or which beach offers the best sunset views.
The property is a 20km drive from Cape Town International Airport and 12km from the centre of Cape Town. A 10km drive from the house will land you at either Muizenberg and the Atlantic Ocean, or over Constantia Nek to Hout Bay and the Indian Ocean.
Constantia is renowned for its peace and tranquillity with numerous wine farms, golf courses, fine restaurants, bistros and the popular Constantia Village shopping centre and Constantia Emporium. Constantia is centrally located for most tourist attractions that the Fairest Cape has to offer.
A slow, easy amble from the guesthouse is Groot Constantia. The largest of the original Constantia wine farms, Groot Constantia dates to 1685 and was the birthplace of the wine industry in the Cape. This working farm has a museum, cellar tours, wine tasting, an art gallery, and two top restaurants, both with stunning mountain and ocean views. Groot Constantia is where you can get on the open top Cape Town Sightseeing bus. This hop on-hop off bus winds its way through Hout Bay, the famous Camps Bay and Clifton beaches along the Atlantic seaboard, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Kirstenbosch Gardens. The bus is a not to be missed attraction for visitors wanting to learn more about this spectacular city.

A hot topic for all travellers to the Western Cape which is suffering a severe drought and declared a water scarce area!
Waterford Guest House is fortunate to have a wonderful bore hole on the property which supplies crystal clear water to keep the swimming pool full. We also filter and treat the bore hole water for home use, laundry, showers, toilet flushing etc. so our guests can relax a little and enjoy their stay. We do ask everyone to always be mindful of the amount of water used throughout their day.
