We were two couples on our third visit to Cape Town but our first visit to The Hideaway - we stayed one month, how lucky were we, fantastic suite, comfortable bed, pool area and garden were private and peaceful. The Hideaway is minutes from the town, beach and restaurants. Sue and Martin, our hosts, were exceptional and looked after us...

It is no wonder that people return to the Hout Bay Hideaway year after year; it's a very unique and incredibly special place. Martin and Sue are the most welcoming hosts - charming, friendly and so attentive. We spent 4 nights in January in the Sentinel Suite (a couple and 19 year old son), a beautiful, spacious suite with a...

We stayed in the Hout Bay Hidaway in February 2015 for 4 nights and it was the best accommodation during our holiday in South Africa. We can’t recommend it highly enough. We had booked the Garden Appartment for us and our 11 year old son and we felt comfortable right from the beginning. The appartment was very spacious and the...

I stayed at the Hout Bay Hideaway for three nights during my recent stay in South Africa and thoroughly enjoyed it. The beautiful rooms and outdoor space are peaceful and homely, it feels like a stunning home from home though with much better weather! Getting to know the wonderful Martin & Sue was a highlight - you couldn't find friendlier...

Our fourth stay with Sue and Martin and planning our fifth… I guess that shows how much we enjoy our time at the Hout Bay Hideaway. It is indeed a very comfortable and stylish place, but most importantly it is a home away from home - with hosts that make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Breakfasts on...

We had 3 nights at the Hout Bay Hideaway. Martin and Sue and such lovely, welcoming, chatty hosts. A lovely and substantial breakfast was served outside our room, at a time of our choice. A lovely lagoon-style pool was enjoyed for afternoon swims, and the room itself was lovely and spacious. We liked that there are only a few rooms...

We loved it here but are inclined to keep this to ourselves so that we can go back! Gorgeous views, fabulous rooms, breakfast, garden and pool, what more can one want? Wake up to the sound of birds singing, breakfast is brought round to your room balcony. Breakfast is fresh fruit, cereals, pastry and cooked eggs too. Great for relaxing...

Without any doubt, this is the most comfortable, relaxed and stylish guest house you will find. From the greeting by Sue and Martin, the rooms, breakfast, the bedrooms to the magnificent garden. Your attention to detail would put many 4/5 star hotels to shame.Thank you for a memorable stay, looking forward to a return visit soon.
