A TRANQUIL AND PRIVATE RETREAT IN HIGH CONSTANTIA
Potters Place is solely used for holiday lets. It is run as a professional holiday let and is not someone's residence.
It’s a Cape Vernacular style home set in a private farm like garden. Although you are in the heart of Cape Town, seconds from upmarket shopping centres and restaurants, once you drive through the gates of the private estate it becomes a nature lover’s world. Solar heated pool, 60 lemon trees, a natural spring dam is the perfect place to come back and relax after a day sightseeing Cape Town.
Set back against the Table Mountain Nature Reserve, Potters is a nature and bird lovers delight with literally a 5 minute walk to beautiful mountain trails and also Cape Town’s oldest wine farm, Groote Constantia, also perfect for walks and picnics.
For visitors who don’t know Cape Town it can be hard to choose which area to stay in as usually there is an up and down side. The advantage of staying in the Constantia area is that there is an abundance of ups! The most important been how central Constantia is. To get to any destination for the day, should it be the beaches on the Atlantic or Indian Ocean, Table Mountain, the Waterfront or the Camps Bay strip it will only take you maximum 15 to 20 min. Each guests we have had remarks on how great the location is.

Interaction with guests
I will personally welcome guests on arrival.
We do a weekly cleaning and garden service on the day the guest chooses. This is optional. We also have trusted cleaner/ child minder that would love to help on other days at their wage per day.
Potters is set in High Constantia. The most elite part of Constantia. Where home prices range from 70 million to 7 million. The lovely thing about living in this area is each property is large enough not to be disturbed by neighbours. Once there you feel like you are living on a farm in the country but everything shops, restaurants, attractions and beaches are a short drive away.
It really is best to hire a car when holidaying in Cape Town. Our transport system is not the best and distances between places are to great and not always accessible.
Other things to note
I am fortunate enough to be in the position to offer two unique stunning homes. Along with Potters Place. I also have a beautiful ON THE BEACH holiday home in Kommetjie. Beach Point is literally on the beach. An awesome 3 bedroom thatch is the perfect beach house for the perfect beach holiday. Why not consider enjoying the best of Cape Town? Few days on the beach finishing off with a few days in the wine lands? Chat to me for more info.
The house is furnished in wooden oak or oregan pine furniture which is lovely warm and robutst.
Your main rule is to enjoy your stay and also to enjoy many glasses of Constantia Wine on the patio watching the awesome view.

I have lived in the Constantia area pretty much my whole life. A few years ago I learnt to surf which anyone that surfs will tell you is a very addictive sport. Luckily my whole family enjoys surfing and we spend a lot of time over the mountain in Kommetjie as it has one of the best surf breaks in Cape Town.
I started renting our Potters for holiday let as we were spending more and more time away. That was 3 years ago and Potters has been pretty much fully booked for the peak seasons. Our guests just love it and I can honestly say I have not had one person that was not happy.
It is really important to me that my guests enjoy their stay and I am available anytime to make sure they do.
