Houtkapperspoort is a delightful quiet place up the mountains between Constantia Nek and Hout Bay, surrounded by beautiful trees on the side slopes of Table Mountain. Breathing in fresh air from the trees all day and night is a real treat away from pollution. Close proximity to all major areas in Cape Town is a big plus point. The rooms...

Wonderful place to stay for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding country side. These are self catering lodges set in beautifully maintained gardens just outside Houts Bay and near Constansia Nek. We enjoyed the peaceful tranquility of this place after the hurly-burly of our daily explorations. Close to many tourist attraction i.e. Kirstanbosch, Table Mountain, False Bay, Cape point, Stellenbosch,...

Good accommodation for the price, although as each cottage is individually owned you must do a bit of research to pick the interior that best suits your taste. Love the springbok and the ease of travel between Hout Bay and Constantia. Either beautiful views back over Hout Bay- although the sea can't be seen.

We have stayed here on many occasions in the past and been really happy, but this time we stayed in cottage #2 which was poorly maintained - badly furnished and a little dirty. The fridge was not turned up and was very smelly inside. The gardens and still great with stunning views of the mountains but I will definitely make...

We looked at the accommodation online and called reception. The lady that assisted us was friendly and helpful all the way. Booking went without a hitch and even arriving late was no problem. The keys were safely kept and the unit spotless. We enjoyed the unit very much. Mid winter and it was nice and warm inside. The views were...

Our houses were cleaned daily and the staff were very helpful and considerate to our needs. Great amenities such as A/C, wifi in some of the houses (confirm before booking) fully equipped kitchen and...

Wonderful place to spend a vacation. Secluded, quiet, self-catering homes allowed for a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. There were 25 of us. We were in different cottages. Each cottage is different (owned by different people). Ours (#8) could use some work, but it was pleasant. Security was good. Amazing views of the mountains with Springbok roaming the grounds everywhere....
