This was our second stay at Houtkapperspoort. We stayed in cottage 25, well situated with a lovely view. Despite the water shortage there was enough water for a shower and washing up. It’s location is ideal for trips to the centre of town and also to Surrounding attractions. Looking forward to going back.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled as a couple

This is the third time we have stayed at Houtkapperspoort, the first time we hired 5 of the properties in 2010 when we got married in Cape Town, and all our guests stayed there. It was a perfect base for everyone, close to kirstenbosch, trails up table mountain, restaurants and wine farms, and a wonderfully large swimming pool to cool down after a hot day out. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble, and this made our guests feel very welcome.
7 years on we returned with two little ones in tow, and were greeted with the same warm welcome and friendly efficient service. We stayed in number 9, Rosewood Cottage, which was beautifully decorated and had everything we could have possibly needed. The Main bedroom is downstairs and has a separate en suite ( we had grandparents traveling with us and this was perfect for them, slightly separated so that they were not woken up when our little monsters decided it was time to wake up) the other two bedroom are upstairs, a large double room with ample space, and another double bedroom with twin beds, again with ample space. All three bedrooms had plenty of storage space, we literally felt at home and didn’t want to leave. (So much so we decided to come back to Cape Town from our travels early and booked another two nights in the same cottage.

The gardens surrounding houtkapperspoort are beautiful, and we spent plenty of time soaking up the atmosphere at the outside table, the cherry on the top was to be greeted by the springboks each morning.
Highly recommend houtkapperspoort, and cannot wait to come back.

Room Tip: Rosewood Cottage perfect for families

Excellent place to stay with family when visiting Cape Town: Nice cottage very well equippe; Nice garden with some animals; Swimming pool.
However, you'll need a car.
Very good in terms of localisation: 20 mins from airport; 20 mins from table mountai; 10 mins from hout bay.

What a delight! We stayed here for 2 nights and regretted not booking here for our entire stay in Cape Town. The resort is so peaceful and quiet and we loved the sound of the birds chirping in the surrounding trees and the sight of springbuck frolicking around the resort. Cottages were well equipped and cozy. Will definitely be back!

Fantastic self-catering cottages set in a secure mountainside retreat. We had 2 x 6 sleepers different furnishings in each (more owner dependent than resort requirement) but they are fit for purpose, well stocked and serviced every day. The location has spectacular scenery surrounded by mountains and set on the slopes of the Table Mountain Reserve. But it is not walking distance to the beach nor would I recommend walking or cycling the route. It is situated on the main road into Hout Bay which can be noisy, get very congested and bordered by an informal settlement between the resort and the beach and Hout Bay town. But it is safe and there is a herd of resident Springboks and multitude of squirrels.
The lack of wifi in some cottages as well as not being able to get it to work when there was is frustrating for foreigners who are not data roaming. You have to go to reception to surf. Also there is no onsite shop for convenience items so a trip down to Houtbay is required (as mentioned you need transport) other than these two snags, we could not fault it.
Great value for money, peace and tranquillity ..apologies for when we destroyed it. Will recommend if you want to get away from it all and something different for a beach holiday. All in all very good value for money.

Room Tip: Further from the main road the quieter it is. Ask if there is wifi in cottage
