“Good value, needs a little TLC and a few more self-catering touches”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Good location and value. It's a shame about the new property going up next door, which has made accessing the view a little more challenging - though creative thinking on behalf of the owner to build a higer level deck! Main issue was the door handle was broken before we arrived (it kept falling off), which made getting in every day a little challenging. We tried to co-ordinate a time for the lady who was taking care of clients in the owners absence (who was very nice) to fix it but unfortuntely there was only one set of keys so it didn't work out. Also, we couldn't work out if (or how) the bottom gate could be closed without clanging it! The place is 'bijou' but that's fine, it's a base. Nice big sliding doors to let air through. Felt cool most of the time except on the very hottest days. Free wifi is appreciated. Bed and decor were nice, though an extra little table inside would be useful. So would some basic self-catering essentials - a starter pack type thing, with condiments like salt and pepper, washing up liquid, extra loo roll, maybe a few more household essentials? A better bin would be useful too. The bathroom could do with a little bit of work - the water did not drain when you had a shower, so you were quickly left with soapy scum in the bath. I'd recommend the owners (who were away when we stayed) stay there themselves for a few nights or more and then figure out what's needed and what would be those nice little extras that some places provide in self-catering properties. Hout Bay is a less salubious location than Camps Bay, Clifton or the winelands - but that makes it more interesting and more 'real'. We enjoyed our stay and felt like it was worth what we paid.
