“Amazing place to stay”
Reviewed 13 September 2016

This B&B is one of the most beautiful places we stayed. Sue and Martin are very charming and welcoming people. The house is stylish furnished, the rooms are spacious, the balconys have a nice view in the garden and the lush garden with a pool is just wonderful. The atmosphere is relaxing. The breakfast is delicious, allways with fresh fruits, served in your room/balcony or in the kitchen/garden.
The hosts are very helpful and really lovely people. We had a blast with Sue and Martin. It will allways be our place to stay near Cape Town.

Room Tip: The whohle package is beautiful

What can I say - I think the fact that we have stayed here on previous occasions says it all.

Sue & Martin are warm, friendly and helpful hosts and we are always sorry to say goodbye at the end of our trip.

The airport transfers arranged by Sue & Martin always work well as does the delivery/collection of the rental car at The Hideaway.

We always enjoy our breakfast sat on the terrace in the sunshine.

Shops/restaurants are around a 15 minute walk down hill. The kitchenette in the room comes in handy if you prefer to have a light evening meal on the terrace.

You can now catch the bus into Cape Town from Hout Bay.

Thanks Sue & Martin for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed with any of the rooms.

What fabulous stay at the wonderful Hideaway! I loved this beautiful, peaceful place and nothing was too much trouble for the delightful hosts, Martin and Sue. It is a perfect base for exploring the Cape Peninsular and a great place to relax in the luxurious rooms with their balconies overlooking the lovely garden and pool. The breakfasts are delicious and always served with a smile. I am already looking forward to my next visit!!

We stayed here for several nights, it is really well placed, being approx 20 mins from Cape Town, Sue and Martin (the owners) have a relaxed but discreet approach to enable you to immediately relax and enjoy your visit, they offer a wonderful breakfast served on you private terrace, which has excellent views over Hout Bay. Their accommodation is well planned, spacious and comfortable offering you complete privacy.....a little piece of paradise!

We have been fortunate enough to have travelled all over South Africa in the past 18 years & can honestly say that this is one of the very best guest houses in which we have stayed.

We chose the HBH based on location & the positive reviews. (We have previously stayed just up the road.) Our room was large with a huge & comfortable bed, essential for a good night's sleep after a long, over night journey. Our reception by Sue & Martin was warm & friendly as they were throughout our stay.

The breakfasts, served on our private balcony, were varied & delicious & always accompanied by a friendly chat. Nothing is too much trouble for Sue & Martin. The garden is lovely & quiet with a clean plunge pool to allow a cooling swim on the hotter days.

We loved our 4 nights here & if we ever fancy another stay in Hout Bay we will definitely return here.
