The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and I love the decor. My only suggestions are to at least add a curtain/blinds to the bathroom window and a coat rack of some sort. The room I stayed in was at ground level and the bathroom window did not have any blinds or frosted glass. If tall enough, someone passing by through the sevice entrance could see right into the bathroom and the shower. I walked into the bathroom one morning to brush my teeth and found someone cleaning the outside of the window, my privacy felt violated. I rigged a makeshift curtain, but would have rather liked the comfort of knowing that complete strangers could not peep into the bathroom. I would've liked to have had a coat rack or a coat-hook instead of just a closet with some hangers. Their breakfast was more than enough to help kick off a day of exploring Cape Town. The V&A Waterfront is a 30+ minute walk from the guesthouse by way of the promenade and about 10 minutes by taxi. There are plenty of restaurants and pubs within walking distance on the Main Road of Sea Point.

The owner, Simric, went out of his way to tailor our stay and tour to our needs, including picking us up in Khayelitsha, introducing us to a local poet and a local playwright, and taking us to an artisan food market. The breakfast, brought in the morning by Carrey, was excellent. And they had brought in a second heater as some of the winter nights were quite cold.
The room has an alarm system, and we felt safe walking to the False Bay train station, a leisurely ten-minute walk away. Three stations away is Kalk Bay, where there are plenty of options for fine dining at a reasonable cost.

Small and excellent guest house. Comfort and care are supplied in abundance by the lovely couple who own La Roche, Jolyon and Heike, who went out of their way to ensure my stay was as enjoyable as possible. The room was beautifully presented with all amenities and would not have disgraced a 4* sea-front hotel. With mountain views to the rear, a short (4 minute) drive to the golf course and beach and an easy drive into the centre of Cape Town it is easy ideally positioned for all tastes. I would highly recommend La Roche to anyone.

Hout Bay View is a B&B with eight rooms for rent run by a couple of friendly guys who have a taste for clean modern decor and attention to detail. Breakfast is served every day in a large great room at two long tables from 7:30am to 9:00am, which included both cold and hot options well done. My wife and I availed ourselves of the hot tub and small pool in the evening, enjoying the mountain and bay views. Guests were fun, from all walks of life and a wide variety of countries.
The hosts went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, helping us to print out tickets and boarding passes via their computer network and Internet connection. The lock on the door to our room got sticky, finally failing to work at all, and they replaced it within a few hours, before we got back that evening. Our room was probably the smallest one and was a bit tight, but still comfortable with a large bed, a small chair, two nightstands, two large closets and a safe. Linens were cleaned and replaced regularly and the beds made for us. It's great to be pampered.
All and all, a great little B&B for a cosmopolitan experience.
