Cannot recommend Hout Bay Hideaway highly enough. Accommodation, service, food and views - 5 star all the way. Sue and Martin are the perfect hosts making you feel at home from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave.

Martin and Sue were such welcoming hosts! Their home is beautiful, welcoming, and very comfortable. The rooms were exceptionally well-appointed. Every item one could want is ready, at hand. We arrived in the evening to a complementary bottle of wine as well as tea and coffee-makings. Nothing prepared me for the beautiful view from our balcony....and soon a delicious breakfast...
