We found this property and booked online. This was a weekend and I'd had difficulty finding a vacancy in Cape Town after calling around to several places - so we searched for vacancies online and found Brightwater. We stayed 2 nights. The place is really nice and clean; great sitting room downstairs, clean nice furnishings, small fridge in the room. However, I was pestered on several occasions by Gerard about whether we paid, despite the fact that he'd received confirmation that we had paid using an online booking service and that he was due payment from the online service. It was a weekend and the payment had not been posted to his account. He also expressed displeasure that the online booking agents take a percentage for their service. I am still bewildered why he signed up for online booking services when he is clearly not happy with them (though in my mind it is important to note that I would not have found the room without that online service).

Our stay was only for a few hours but the owners have been very nice and helpful and the house is very bright due to many windows and glas walls. We had a cosy, big room and enjoyed the freshly made breakfast in the morning.

First visit to Africa and the few days at the beginning of our trip were spent in Hout Bay at Brightwater lodge. Could not have had a better introduction-- friendly , immaculately clean , and informative. Would highly recommend.

Nice place to be. Very welcome. Room was excellent and room and balcony gave us much privacy. Owners did all they could to make us at home.
Breakfast was very good.
For our next stay in Houtbay we sure will take this place

Very nice place to stay during our trip to Houtbay. The owners Erica and Gerard make you feel like you're staying in their private home, with a very cozy atmosphere and a very nice breakfast. The place is close to the harbour, only a few minutes walk.
If you need a dark room to sleep in, be sure they don't give you room no. 1, as it has a big window just beneath the ceiling without curtains! Everything else was perfect!
