Arrived end January and here for five weeks ,so week and a bit to go and to be frank I would happily stay five months !! It has everything a couple needs for an extended stay and we have use of the pool less than a minute away
The cottage is quiet and secluded on the mountain slope facing the valley and the garden is lush and leafy...and yet we are 5 mins drive from Hout Bay with all the shops you need and plenty restaurants , it is also an easy drive to Camps Bay and on to the Waterfront, about 30 mins
Ashley is a great host,nothing is too much trouble and he might just not be getting the keys back on 6th March !!
Located just above World of Birds in Hout Bay, inmidst of wonderful shadegiving trees, this. cottage is quietly tucked away yet very near every where you want to be: Shops, eating places, the Mariners wharf and the Harbour.
Llundudno Beach is just a short drive, although there is obviously also Hout Bay Beach.
"Mutti's cottage" is very well equiped with a full kitchen, nice deco. We enjoyed the terrace, you even have a small Weber Braai, which we made use of.
A large bedroom with a very comfortable kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom, as well as a guest toilet and even a washing machine make for a very comfortable stay.
The owner family Is wonderful, the Poodle adoring. Ashley is super friendly and easygoing, he also speaks German quiete well - there for you when you need something, otherwise you are given all the privacy you want.
To summarize: we had an amazing and very relaxing stay, and we'll visit again!
Mutti’s Cottage has everything you need for a pleasant stay in Hout Bay. It’s situated on a lovely property that overlooks the Bay and from the cottage itself, you can see the famous Chapman’s Peak drive. Well-appointed, private, bright, comfortable and surprisingly roomy for a one bedroom cottage, it is securely tucked in among fine trees and shrubbery in an upper scale neighbourhood. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is maid service once a week and the busy but gracious and helpful hosts, Ashley and Debbie, are there if or when you need them. There is a large, beautiful pool on the property that is available to renters and WiFi and television are connected inside the cottage. A trip to Cape Town is a delightful twenty minutes, traversing world class scenery. All in all, we enjoyed a very happy month at 8A Stirrup Lane and highly recommend it.
This cottage is perfectly placed to access Capetown , Constantia and Muzzenburg as well as the beautiful beaches of Llandudno,Hout Bay and Camps Bay. There are a large selection of good restaurants and supermarkets a short drive away. The cottage is kitted out to a high standard and communication with Ashley was always quick. The cottage is set in its own grounds but you have access to the pool at the big house Chateau Neuf du Cap where Ashley and his family live. We also had the cottage cleaned once a week.we loved the peace of the area and to look over towards the bay over the world of birds.
This cottage is absolutely ideal for a couple. It is very comfortable and has everything you would want for a very laid back holiday. The owners are on site if there are any problems - however, we really did not require any assistance at all but Ashley was so helpful on our arrival.
Very easy drive to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Hout Bay is a lovely destination for a holiday.
