We spent two nights at the start of our trip here in Hout Bay. As with the best b&bs we could easily have spent longer. Cape Town is an easy Uber ride away and the lovely Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are just around the bay. Our room was fabulous: so quiet and with a beautiful view towards Hout Bay harbour. Breakfast was a delicious spread of cereals, fruits, yoghurt, pastries, fresh breads and eggs & bacon if you still had room. Great tea and freshly ground coffee in the room plus a lovely bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. This would make a great alternative to staying in central Cape Town. Thank you Sue and Martin for such a welcome start to our holiday.
The Hout Bay Hideaway is located in a quiet exclusive residential area. The house is beautiful with antique furnishings and is spotless clean. The hosts Sue and Martin were wonderful making our stay memorable. We had the pool view room which was lovely over looking the tropical gardens and pool which was lovely for a swim. We had breakfast served on our private balcony which was fabulous with delicious cereal, fresh fruits, yogurt and lovely cakes. Everything was excellent you won’t be disappointed if you stay here.
We were newly arrived from the UK and the Hideaway was a splendid start to out trip. Lovely spacious room with a veranda. Small kitchenette to make drinks and a microwave. Martin and Sue are very welcoming, full of local knowledge and very keen to make sure your stay is the best. Lovely breakfasts
on the veranda. If all our stopping places are like this then we shall have a great stay in South Africa.
This was a second stay at Hideaway. I was a single traveller who was given all the help and support I needed for a successful holiday. My ‘room with a view’ overlooking the bay was inviting, spotless and spacious. The owners are always on hand, willing to chat, interested in the everyday occurrences of the holiday. Good breakfast as well!
We began our honeymoon in South Africa at The Hout Bay Hideaway with a five night stay. It was a wonderful place to kick off our trip. The location is great being on a lovely quiet street but only a short distance from the centre of Hout Bay. Hout Bay itself is really nice and also in a great location for exploring the rest of the Cape Town area. The whole property is beautiful and the room we had at the back overlooking the garden was perfect. The room was extremely clean and comfortable with access straight on to a lovely veranda and then the garden with pool. Breakfast every day was delicious. Sue and Martin are absolutely wonderful hosts and were so welcoming and helpful with loads of good tips for places to eat and visit. Would recommend to anyone and would love to go back again in the future. Thanks for a truly lovely stay, Emily and Tom.
