“Perfect introduction to RSA”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The property is overlooking the restored silvermine river with ocean and mountain views. It is a 10 minute walk to the ocean and walking trails directly behind the property. To get to the grocery store takes about 20 minutes. Miles and Carin are a pleasure to be around. Not intrusive, yet available and knowledgeable about the area. Miles is a birder and his home attracts many of the coastal species. He also is able to show lots of the fynbos to you. I had no idea what a spectacular thing it was till shown. There are several nooks and crannies on the property itself to sit, draw or whatever. The unit is well stocked for cooking meals and the linen is first rate. There is lots of space and even an outdoor shower! It is so perfect for the whole cape area. Close to Capetown and close to the point. We stayed 2 days more than planned and are sooo happy we did. Really great experience and made my first entry to South Africa a genuine treat. You won't regret staying with them.

“Great views + location, gracious hosts”
Reviewed June 17, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The Mountain House is a serene, comfortable home base from which to explore gorgeous Cape Town and its coastlines. Nice to be outside of the city proper and close to the ocean, while still in proximity to good food, excellent scenery, and all the local attractions.

“Great location, beautiful in and out, friendly owners”
Reviewed April 23, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

A winning combination: located in a posh suburb of Cape Town, beautifully minimalistic decor, great climate, even better views, very friendly owners living just next door. That was the last stop of our 3-week drive through SA, and we found a place both to relax, and see the the many attractions in the vicinity.
Bonus: porcupines roaming the street in front of the house after dark, simply surreal!
We want to come back
