“Valley House 1, King's Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

We stayed at in Valley House 1 for six weeks and had a wonderful time. The house is extremely comfortable and well equipped and is suitable for large parties. It was an excelent base in Cape Town and Hout Bay itself is ideally suited for young children with the activity at the Harbour keeping them entertained for hours. Kim and Ian were most helpful hosts. Thoroughly recommmended.

Stayed October 2011, travelled with family

Experience a real, running farm in CTN - from beautiful horses to ducks and plants, this accommodation offers a great opportunity to explore a different side of Cape Town. There's a beautiful view of mountains and the accommodation is comfortable, clean and neat. Kim and her staff were amazing, going out of there way to assist me wherever possible. This is great accommodation for kids, we'll definitely be back.

Excellent place to stay if you want to visit CPT (Mother City).

It's ideally located in a tranquile area.

Five minutes drive to Hout Bay beach, fifteen minutes to Constantia, 20 minutes to Camps Bay & Clifton and half a hour to the City Bowl & Waterfront.

As it 's self catering, you can do your shopping in Hout Bay (Spar or Woolworths) or Pick & Pay (Constantia).

I stayed in one of their appartments (2 bedrooms, a living room/kitchen and a bathroom (with shower and bathtub). All kitchen equipment is available (also a toaster and micro wave). You also have a flatscreen TV (with DSTV). The rooms are neat and clean.

There also is a communal large swimming pool. They also have horses and a tennis court on the estate.

The room is being serviced (according to your wishes).

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming people who are always there to assist you in case you need something.

Their rates seem fair to me.

So I think it's a no brainer if you ask me.

Our family(of 4) stayed at Kings Place during the August 2011 school holidays. I am not an easy customer to please, and normally find myself scrubbing bathrooms and kitchens in self catering venue's before I allow my family to use anything. This time there was no need to do any of this. The house was beautiful and clean. We enjoyed every minute of our stay! The unit was fully equiped and catered for all our needs. My girls (age 10) loved the farm. Playing tennis, watching the horses or chasing squirels in the garden resulted in not a single bored moment. The hosts Kim and Ian are amazing! We would definately be staying at Kings place again in the near future!!

The King's Place is truely an excellent place.
We stayed at the King's Place with 3 families (18 people), and it was the ideal location for a week in the Cape area. Centrally located, safe, very spaceous , and very friendly people.
Restaurants nearby are fine, but we must also recommend the home-cooking. The traditional south african dishes were lovely. It was a great start of our holiday, we really loved it and we'll be back!

Most comfortable and relaxing getaway in awesome surroundings, highly recommended.

We spent our first two days of our holiday in a four star hotel, then moved to The Kings Place for the next two days, no comparison. It was FAR more comfortable in every sense.

We're looking forward to our next opportunity and there's no doubt to where we'll be staying.

Thank you again Ian and Kim for your sensational hospitality!!
