Sue and Martin are wonderful hosts and look after their guests extremely well. We stayed for our first eight nights, toured for eight nights, and returnrf for our last two nights. Sue and Martin can arrange airport transfers and can put you in touch with a car hire company who drop off and pick up at the property. The bedrooms are large and airy and the superking bed was extremely comfortable. There is a kitchenette with a fridge (milk and bottle of wine), microwave, sink and crockery so if you get tired of eating out pop down to Woolworths (food hall equivalent to M & S) and get some goodies to enjoy with a bottle of wine sat on the decking by your room. Breakfast is brought to your table on the decking. The fruit platter was beautifully presented and the bread and Danish pastry so fresh we opted out of the cooked breakfast on offer.
IAfter a hot day it was lovely to take a dip in the pool (towels provided) and if you are daring you could take a bath in the garden under the stars!
The property is around a 10 minute walk down hill to the main street with a good choice of restaurants. It is okay to walk down in daylight but as there are no street lights it is best to get a taxi back in the evening.
Take the hop on/hop off tour bus that stops at Hout Bay to see the sights of Cape Town. Drop of at the botanical gardens and have lunch at the cafe there. Take the included tour to one of the Constantia wineries and enjoy some wine tasting. We had a two day ticket and caught the 10 a.m. bus giving you plenty of time for sightseeing. This was a really good introduction to the area.
This was our first trip to South Africa (hopefully not our last) and we couldn't have found a better place to stay for our introduction to the country. Thanks Sue and Martin for making us feel so welcome.
