MooiBaai Cottages is located in what was once a farm, in authentic Cape Dutch style with individual cottages. Our direct backyard neighbour is World of Birds, so when you relax on your private terrace with a book and a glass of wine, enjoy the birds flying by midst magnificent mountain vistas. Sleep and rest in one of the hyper comfortable rooms. Or take a plunge in our 3x10 swimming pool! Hout Bay is a perfect starting point for many attractions and activities in the area, for exploring the Mother City (as Cape Town is called) situated just behind the corner, going to Cape Point via the iconic Chapman’s Peak Drive, wine tasting in Constantia or enjoying one of many pristine sandy beaches along the coastline. Due to its central location, Hout Bay is often considered as "The Heart of the Cape".

A great place to stay while in Cape Town. Hout bay is the perfect location to do all kind of things in Cape town itself or the wine regions around. It is very close to the fun neighborhoods, restaurants and bar.
Mooibaai is a magical place, with beautiful mountains around, you wake up with an extraordinary view. Valerie made us feel welcome and is extremely helpful, she gave us all kind of tips and is very communicative. The rooms are clean and tidy, with beautiful details. We stayed for a week, but we know for sure we will go back soon!

Was fortunate to experience two days at Mooibaai. The superior accommodation and delicious breakfasts certainly contributed to the exceptional stay at MooiBaai! The mountain vistas from the fruit tree gardens and the sounds of the bird inhabitants at the adjacent World of Birds only made my stay more memorable. Highly recommend MooiBaai without any reservations.

Just excellent. Spacious and bright rooms with everything you need. A common room with seating area, dining table, honesty bar and kitchen containing everything you need for cooking and dining. The good-quality breakfast is served in the wonderful garden. The only room for improvement would be to heat the swimming pool as the water was freezing which made swimming impossible.

Our stay at MooiBaai was simply perfect. We had a beautiful spacious room and bathroom. Nice swimming pool in the garden. Very fresh and varied breakfast. Very friendly host who explained us everything which we asked. Great honesty bar system (take from the fridge what you like and note the quantities and pay later).

MooiBaai is a perfect little spot in Cape Town, close to city and outdoor activities, with a very homely feeling. Spacious room (elephant), & nice cool and quiet garden for a relaxing moment with a book. Lovely breakfast and great service from Valerie and staff. We stayed 5 nights. With a 30 mins range drive you can reach beaches, hikes, city centre, wineries etc.

We enjoyed our stay in Mooi Baai this december very much. We found the service, cleanliness and the quality of the beds where excellent.
We gave the rooms and the value a rating "average" because we think that a small fridge and a TV are a must, especially when you stay for a longer time.like we did.

Hi Stan and Cobie, nice to hear you again :-) I enjoyed your stay very much too - a symbolic one for me! yes I understand your remarks... in fact those are deliberate choices we made. I opted for good wifi so people can stream if they want to, and there is a big fridge in the communal kitchen that guests can use. but maybe a fridge is something I can consider for the bigger rooms. I will take that one into consideration! all my best wishes for the new year! Valerie

Certainly a place you don’t want to leave again. Valerie is an amazing host, everything is done with care and great taste in style. We felt very welcomed. We will always come back. Hout Bay is a perfect, calm spot from where you get everywhere around Cape Town in no time.

Excellent accomodation for the three of us - beautiful view over the valey, tasteful interiors and very friendly host. We stayed here for four nights and every day the breakfast was crisp, plenty and delicious. Hout Baai is conveniently located to explore the magnificent Cape Town area.
