Waterford Guest House

Relax in the peace and tranquillity that is an integral part of the beautiful Constantia Valley. Waterford Guest House offers ideal accommodation for family holidays and discerning business travelers alike. Set on an acre of indigenous garden with stunning mountain views and surrounded by the vineyards of Constantia's world-famous wine farms, Waterford’s unique location offers country living while being centrally located for all the Fairest Cape has to offer.

Located a 20 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport, the City centre and V&A Waterfront and only 15 minutes from pristine blue flag beaches, Table Mountain National Park, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Locally we have a wonderful choice of shopping malls, restaurants, gyms, wine farms and medical centres. For avid golfers, Westlake and Steenberg Golf Courses are within 5 minutes’ drive. Glencairn, Rondebosch, Royal Cape and Mowbray Golf Courses are within 15 minutes’ drive.

The American International School, Reddam House School, US Consulate, Constantiaberg Mediclinic and Melomed Medical Centre are all just a few minutes’ drive away.

Waterford offers a choice of three totally separate apartments, each offering complete privacy, but they are just a few steps from each other across the lawn or pool area so are ideal for extended family and friends travelling together.


“Guinea Fowl” is our larger (80m² / 800ft²) poolside garden apartment with spectacular mountain views. It is comfortable, spacious and fully equipped for self-catering. There is a large open plan lounge with a real log fireplace for those cooler Cape evenings, a dining area and well-equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom has a choice of a King-size or two single beds. There is a full bathroom and a separate walk-in shower room.


“Padda Plek” is our smaller (28m²/ 280ft²) one bedroomed poolside apartment. It is very private, comfortable and fully equipped for self-catering. It has a separate entrance, open plan lounge with a dining area and well-equipped kitchen. There is a separate bedroom with a queen size bed and en-suite bathroom with a shower.


“Sunbird” is our Bed and Breakfast suite (32m²/ 320ft²). It has a private entrance with a garden aspect offering spectacular mountain views. There is spacious bedroom with the option of either a king size or two single beds, a dressing area and full en suite bathroom. A single bed is available for a child sharing. There is a fridge, microwave, toaster and tea/coffee facilities which allow for light meal preparation. Delicious home cooked breakfasts are available on request.

A hot topic in Cape Town is the recent severe drought and water rationing. Well the winter rains arrived and are still filling up our dams BUT the water rationing is here to stay and each person in Cape Town is limited to a recommended total of 70 litres of water per day. 

Waterford Guest House is in a very fortunate position by having a wonderful bore hole which supplies the home and garden with crystal clear water, it keeps our swimming pool full and guests can enjoy a guilt- free shower without having to stand in a bucket (apologies but no baths).  In compensation for our guest’s mindful use of our precious water, we offer free tickets to each of our guests for a museum tour and wine tasting at nearby Groote Constantia, the Cape’s original and oldest wine farm.
