Hillary is an excellent host the cottage is very well decorated. Service is topnotch, not a thing I could complain about. Extraplus for a lovely breakfast, each day different served on the terrace! Stayed here in January 2012 for 6 days! Keep in mind, it's a half hour drive to Capetown. The drive itself is beautiful though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Misti. The management of the guesthouse was very professional and the service was excellent. Should we get the opportunity we will stay over again. We can highly recommend El Misti for any guest that likes a quiet surrounding. We loved the interior decorating of the room also.

From the start we loved our bright and spacious bedroom and large bathroom set apart from the bungelow of the owners on the first floor of a mexican style building. With its private entrance and shaded terrace overlooking the garden and pool this B&B is paradise for travellers wanting to escape Northern winters. Hilary serves a delicious breakfast on the...

We were few weeks in El Misti. We like the location, the house, the privacy of the pool and garden. We use the location for day trip in the area and it was very convenient. The nice weather allowed us to take full avantage of the pool (cold) and the garden.

The stay was in a very charming family atmosphere. The room apart from the main building gives you a big privacy. Sometimes waking up in the morning the breakfast was on the table in front of my room. Every day the breakfast looked like out of a commercial, but this one you could eat and it tasted very very good....

Hout Bay is an excellent place to stay when visiting Cape Town. Constantia and Kirstenbosch are 10 min drive away, Camps Bay perhaps 15 min and Chapmans peak Drive at your door step. We would certainly choose Hout Bay again for our base and we would definitely want to stay at El Misti again ! The location is excellent, easy...
