I would highly recommend above mentioned cottage to anyone looking for a mini break/get away. From our arrival time we were warmly welcomed by Richard, who took us through the well equipped modern cottage.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mountain Rise and will be back soon soon. I was blown away with the neatness and cleanliness of the cottage itself. The view is spectacular, surrounded by Mother Nature.
Furthermore I can say Mountain Rise is the place to be.
The cottage is in the grounds of the owners house but is quite private with its own secluded patio and use of the owners pool (the one shown in the photos). Unfortunately Capetown was in the middle of a very severe drought and water shortage when we stayed so we were necessarily heavily restricted on water use for showers etc but this couldn't be helped and the owners did everything they could to ease the situation for us. The cottage is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It is split level with steps down into the dining areas and then again into the kitchen (just to bear in mind if any mobility issues). Lovely views down the valley towards the sea. Very secure area / gate to property and very close (walking distance) to World of Birds which is well worth a visit. Short drive to Hout Bay harbour and some good restaurants, harbour / seal island cruise was nice and very close to start of Chapmans Peak Drive.
Our 3rd visit to this property confirms our opinion that it is a spacious, comfortable cottage in a beautiful garden setting with excellent sea views. Situated in a safe and secure area but convenient for all Hout Bay restaurants and shopping ideal for touring the Cape Peninsula and Winelands
The owner live on site and is always available should there be any problems the large swimming pool is a bonus on hot sunny days
We couldn't be much happier with our honeymoon accommodation. Would definitely book again :) great service
I stayed at the Cottage with my wife for 4 days in January 2017. The place is spacious and has good privacy. However, the front door needs blinds for privacy. The bed and bedding in the main bedroom needs to be replaced! (white bed linen is recommended). The whole place needs some spring cleaning! Squirrels running around on the roof at night is a nuisance, kept us awake at night. Branches on the roof should be trimmed. Richard, the owner is however friendly and the reception was good. Some of the apartment's pictures placed online are misleading. (i.e. the picture of the swimming pool is showing the main-house and not the cottage). Did not have a pleasant stay at all!
