This is the BEST place to stay .. We have traveled here twice now and will be back. Everything is beautiful set out and clean and fresh. June is the most amazing hostess and we always feel so at home here. It is close to the local shops and the beach at Hout Bay is lovely to walk on. I... More

Its a beautiful location amidst a forest and a beautiful view of the Hout Bay. The cottages are tastefully decorated and adequately furnished. The owner, June, is a very helpful lady who makes you feel very welcome. The climb at the end is daunting but one gets accustomed to it very easily. Overall, a five star experience.

The driveway was quite nerve racking the first trip up but you do get used to it and the views are spectacular! The cottage was very well equipped, spotless, beautifully decked out - lovely to have fresh ground coffee. June was... More

We only stayed for two nights but felt so relaxed when we left. The view is out of this world, the driveway is a bit daunting at first but you... More

Good value and great views. We had a very comfortable 5 days here, and enjoyed it. The driveway and approach is hellish, not for the faint hearted!

We take a lot of time to select accommodation and here we found a delightful place with breathtaking views and very attentive and caring hosts, June and David. Admittedly the approach road is steep and the drive even steeper but do not let this put you off. Pause at the bottom of the drive to let the remotely controlled gate... More
