“Perfect stay - fabulous breakfast”
Reviewed 5 November 2010

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.
All the spots in hout bay you can go to are very close. For a trip to cape town or cape point you have to use a car. Certainly chapmans peak drive is a must. You also should do a trip to table mountain, where you can get every day a view from your room to the back side of table mountain. If you want to hike on table mountain and be attended by a guide, adrian would be glad to do an appointment with you. He is a certified mountain guide on table mountain.
I wish you all the best for your stay

The most convenient, lovely and charming accomodation that I experienced. I would go back immediately the next time I go to this area. The BREAKFASTS are incredible with very special music coming from a distance... a MUST !!!

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 to find and they have a secure parking.
We arrived too early, but received a very friendly welcome from the staff.
The cottage is lovely, beautifully decorated. Yet at the same time you felt at home and relaxed. The attention to details was amazing ; fresh flowers, slippers, daily fresh milk in the fridge, complimentary sherry, books about local history etc. The bath room is huge with a rain shower and heated towel rail.
The breakfast was served at your own balcony overlooking the lovely garden and the mountains. We stayed for 2 nights and had 2 delicious breakfasts, different things both mornings served and prepared by the owner herself ( a professional chef ). And again the details, the table was set beautifully.
We would like to thank Hilary for her hospitality and have absolutely no hesitation to recommend her b & b to our friends and to all visiting Cape Town !
