Yet another return to this lovely B&B. Sue and Martin are wonderful and attentive hosts and the rooms are all excellent. This time we stayed in the Garden Room facing the garden (No!Really?). Very pretty and quiet. Beautifully presented and plentiful breakfast on the balcony We like Hout Bay. Less frantic than Camps Bay and with much more charm. Thanks guys. Expect further visits from us in the future.

As always it was fun having you stay and we're glad you enjoyed. The Sky Light Suite, the one facing the garden which is, as you know my favourite room. Thanks to M for her help with the plants.

Sue and Martin have created a truly wonderful hideaway - it feels tucked away and tranquil whilst being in easy reach of all that Hout Bay and Cape town have to offer. Wonderful accommodation, beautiful rooms and extremely comfortable beds with excellent en-suites. Breakfast on the balcony was a joy every morning with an amazing selection of fruit, pastries and cooked dishes. Sue and Martin were superb hosts throughout the stay. Would recommend it to anyone.

The name tells it all. Situated on the slope on the mountain it’s far enough from the noisy main road but still so near that in five minutes by walking you can reach the beach and the restaurants. (getting back it takes a little bit longer 😉)Rooms are well maintained and clean. And the owners helpful and kind. Breakfast is served on your balcony and it’s both esthetically and culinary well designed. Can really be recommended.

The number of 5* reviews on TA for Hout Bay Hideaway tell it's own story. We like many others were returning guests. Sue and Martin are maintaining their high standards of hospitality and comfort, the Hideaway offers all you need for a relaxing stay, quiet setting but mins away from all that Hout Bay offers. Sue and Martin are happy to pass on recommendations for places to eat and things to do, they make every effort to ensure their guests enjoy themselves.

A real gem of a find. We had a lovely week staying at the Hout Bay Hideaway where the owners Sue and Martin were the perfect hosts and helped to make our stay there so enjoyable. Hout Bay is a lovely spot and yet within easy reach of Cape Town and so many other attractions in the surrounding area. There were no negatives. We would love to return sometime and will certainly recommend to anyone visiting SA.
