We stayed here for seven nights at the beginning of our holiday (having initially planned on three) and returned again for two nights at the end of our stay. During that time we saw each of the four rooms (including the apartment) and they're all equally inviting & comfortable. The Turkish rugs, the antique furniture, the nicely chosen art make for a stylish and comfortable environment. Indeed everything about the place works exactly the way you might hope were you to run a guesthouse yourself. It's easy and laidback on the surface because behind the scenes real thought and skill have gone into getting it right.
It's nice that your breakfast is served to you on the terrace outside your room & the breakfasts themselves are a treat. The garden and pool are welcoming after you've been out and about all day, and Martin & Sue, the owners have a nice friendly, informative yet professional manner that makes everything gel. We noticed several of the guests there at the same time as us were on their second or third visit.
Location-wise, we hadn't really appreciated just how near everything is & we found the guest house an ideal base from which to explore Cape Town itself, Cape Point, the winelands and so on. In a way I didn't really want to post a review because I don't want to find the Hideaway fully booked the next time we want to return. But that would be selfish ! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
