Great villa in beautiful locationPosted Mar 15, 2016
Pros: Views. Garden. Breakfast. Hosts. Only one of two property owners who wrote to us after our stay which was nice.
Cons: Shame cottage was not built just a little larger for inside seating but nice room all the same.
Location: Hout Bay down hill with restaurants, some shops and beach. Llandudno beach very close - lovely. Good road access to everywhere! Chapmans Peak a must
The Villa is set on the mountain side on edge of Hout Bay towards Llandudno and is an excellent property with 4 rooms, great garden and pool with lovely views. We stayed in the smallest room in a separate cottage with its own small garden and terrace with great views towards Constantia Nek which was nice with a coffee or wine!. Room very comfortable and nice bathroom. The only small comment is that it would have been great if it had been built slightly larger so it could accommodate inside seating to use on during the cool evenings rather than sitting on the bed. Hosts very welcoming who provided a very enjoyable breakfast and friendly chat. Shame they are moving on but I am sure the new owners will do an equally good job. Good luck for the future. Would revisit in the future.

A Real GemPosted Nov 11, 2014 on Hotels
Its very rare that a hotel or guest house stay is faultless, but this was. The hosts Patrice and Catherine are the most wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They are always there with good restaurant tips and advice on places to go. The villa is beautiful, the rooms are really well appointed with very tasteful décor ,great shower and big comfortable beds. The garden and pool enjoy the same attention to detail and the views are amazing over the mountains and bay. Breakfast is an event with freshly bought rolls and croissants daily and a choice of fresh fruits, yoghurts, cheeses and a cooked breakfast if you have room. Hout bay is charming, and this guest house is simply the best.

Beautiful guest house intrusive instructionsPosted Mar 24, 2014
Pros: The location and garden were superb.
Cons: Get rid of the instructions to guests as to how to behave and what you will be charged if you don't.
Location: Near to local beaches and good location to sit and relax-subject to guidance.
A fantastic location ruined by requests/instructions. A beautiful place which had a series of intrusive almost authoritarian requests as to how to behave. No towels to go to the beach, please replace the garden furniture in the original position, avoid sun tan lotion on bed linen-and here are the charges you will incur if you don't adhere!!.

Thank you for finding our place as fantastic. What you call "intrusive instructions" is only our internal policy where we remind people to respect our house in order for the next guests to find the same quality of accommodation. It is in the interest of everybody. You complained because you have not been allowed to go to the beach with your bathroom towels. Sorry for that but it is not permitted. When you left we discovered that you didn't take care of any other instruction and you destroyed our bed sheets #with embroideries# with your Sun/Tan lotion although you were informed about that. However we didn’t charge your credit card after you left for this damages. On the other hand in staying in a guesthouse it is to meet with others and to enjoy life and conversation with others. I remind you that during your stay your boyfriend never said only once hello at morning time and left without saying bye bye. We use to welcome guest with a better education.

Hübsches, ruhiges Guesthousr in Hout BayPosted Mar 6, 2017
Catherine und Phillipe bereiten uns einen so herrlichen Emofang bei unserer Ankunft und stehen gleich mit all ihrrr Erfahrung und ihrem Wissen bereit, um Ausflüge und Tagestrips in Hout Bay und Umgebung der Kapregion zu gestalten. Erwähnens- und beachtenswert ist das tolle und reichhsltige Frühstück, welches die beiden regelrecht zelebrieren und das auf der Terrasse im Garten, bei kühlerem Wetter im Haus eingenommen wird. Ein hervorragender Start in den Tag. Von unserem großen Appartement aus haben wir einen fantastischen Blick über die Bucht von Hout Bay. Die Zimmer sind top ausgestattet, es fehlt an absolut gar nichts. Parkplätze vor dem Haus sind vorhanden. Insgesamt ist alles sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Zimmer sind geschmackvoll und stilecht eingerichtet. Der wunderschöne Garten mit Pool runden das Gesamtbild ab. Wir sind als Gäste gekommen und reisen als Freunde ab.
