We have been so lucky to have stayed in some incredible places during our travels, but Intaba Lodge is now at the top of the list. Situated on a beautiful street in a quiet residential neighbourhood in Hout Bay, the location was more than we had hoped. We were warmly welcomed by Pierre who showed us around the property... set...

At intaba lodge your are close to all goodies of Cape Town. The lodge is beautifully situated at houtbaai with stunning views in a very pleasant garden. The room was spacious and elegantly decorated with a lot of original details. The breakfast on the balcony was the best way to start the day.

We stayed at Intaba towards the end of the season and more or less had the place to ourselves! Great breakfast, spacious rooms, lovely decorated...all in all perfect! The couple who owns Intaba is super friendly and will make you feel at home. From Intaba you can easily enjoy Hout Bay, Constantia and the rest of the peninsula!

We stayed at Intaba Lodge for 3 nights in March 2016. Our hosts Valerie and her husband (shame on me, I don't remember his name) very always friendly and helpful.

The last three days of our trip we stayed in the Intaba lodge, would we go there again! Yes we would, I would definitely choose to stay either in the cabin in the garden or the wooden one. Being so close to everything but still getting the feeling that nature is all around you made it perfect for us.

An oasis of quiet countryside with wonderful hosts. Thanks Pierre and Valerie for making our stay so enjoyable. Hout Bay, itself a cute little hamlet with plenty of good restaurants and a clean beach, is only 20 minutes drive from Capetown and Constantia Vineyards.
