We enjoyed the hospitality from The Tarragon team during our latest trip to the Cape. It is now the 7th time we have stayed in The Tarragon and as always, it doesn’t disappoint. Mark and Julia plus their entire team make you feel comfortable and welcome at all times. Very friendly and helpful staff, outstanding service. The premises are well maintained, house and apartments are from highest standard. If you look for a relaxed holiday, this is the place to be. Early in advance booking is required and a must. We are looking forward to our next holidays.

We stayed at the Tarragon for three weeks in February this year. We've been there
several times before, each time we stay longer than the last and this time it was for three weeks. At the time of booking we were slightly anxious that we would be bored. We weren’t. In fact the extra time encouraged us to spend time on the property- more swimming, enjoying the lovely gardens, reading, we had scrabble but never got round to it - too competitive! Tarragon is serviced by a team of three ladies and two gardeners and a more helpful, hard working and nice group of people you could not wish to meet. Mark and Julia, who own the Tarragon provide excellent leadership and set the relaxed tone. One huge bonus is that the ladies will do laundry (for a small fee) which means that less luggage is needed.
There are five cottages ranging from 2x 1 bedsitting room, 2x two bedroom and one three bedroom. We always stay in the same one (lucky us) but we have toured all of them and I would be happy in any. They’re are all elegant, have modern kitchens, & barbecue and provide a setting for Mark and Julia’s excellent taste in wall art, prints and paintings. I really could take home several....
Shopping and food are at the very well stocked Spar five minutes drive away in Oakhurst. two restaurants are found five minutes drive away. Massimos is an excellent Pizza restaurant, lively, family orientated- nearly always fully booked, does take aways and the more upmarket Quentins, just behind is also very popular. Five minutes in a different direction is La Parada with good food, wine and beautiful views.
Shopping Malls are close by.
I don't know why I do this, one day I won’t be able to book, it will be so popular. All sorts of people stay at Tarragon from young families to us older people. Somehow it attracts very nice clientele. The cottages are spaced out, the gardens are large, it never feels crowded and the sparkling pool is large by S African standards. If you read this and book, I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. Oh and most of the Western Cape sights are within an easy day trip n

Room tip: I don't know comparative costs. Depends on the space required

We have just returned from 10 nights atThe Tarragon,we stayed in Saffron which had a large sunny private terrace and just a few steps down to the beautiful pool with stunning views. Mark was a great host, recommending restaurants to go to and was very helpful. You felt very safe there and it was a great location to get to all the wonderful restaurants in Constantia or down to the beach at Hout Bay. We will definitely be returning next time we are in South Africa.

We spend some days at the Tarragon for the third time, and again it was a great experience. We were with our kids (2 and 4) in Ivy (previously in Thyme, and Jasmine); a spacious two bedroom apartment. The pool is great, the views are great, and the apartment always gives us a feeling of being home, while being away from home. It has everything you need, especially when with little kids.

Mark is always super helpful and available when needed / in case of questions, as are the people working at the Tarragon...they are so kind and helpful!

Room tip: Jasmine is less suited for families with very small kids (but making their first steps) as the studio is adjecent to the coi pond.

The Tarragon was excellent and suited our every need. Spacious apartment for us and 2 year old. Beautiful pool with stunning views. Excellent restaurants nearby (La Colombe, Chefs Warehouse). Easy access to town (V&A waterfront) and the beach at Hout Bay / Chapmans Drive, Kirstenbosch. Good base for trips further down the Cape as well. Hope to be back.
