My wife and I stayed in Tree Cottage and found it very private and with ample accommodation.
The setting in Hout Bay is excellent with the harbour, shops and restaurants being a few minutes drive away.The view from the cottage is impressive.
We suggest that blinds in the lounge area would be an improvement.

We wanted to start our annual holiday in Hout Bay for a change. Somewhere to have a few days to acclimatise before moving on. This place is great, the French owners are very helpful and the position is wonderful.

We spent three days at intaba lodge with my girlfriend and our 6 months bab, and we have been delighted.
The service is excellent, the hosts are welcoming, warm and very helpful. The house has a true cachet, and it is perfectly located with an amazing view.
I clearly recommend intaba lodge

My husband and I visited this lovely guesthouse last month. We had a wonderful few days here; having breakfast on the terrace whilst taking in the fabulous view was a real treat. Hout Bay is a great location for visiting Cape Town as it is easy to get into the city but it is also well located for trips to attractions in the wider Cape Town area. Our hosts Valerie and Pierre could not have been more helpful and it was a pleasure to relax in their beautiful garden. We hope to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rock Studio which is huge and has the advantage of a kitchen area

My husband and I stayed at Intaba Lodge on a few occasions and on each visit we left knowing we would return. We enjoyed the surroundings of the property, the pool and the great hospitality of the owners, Valérie & Pierre-Marie. They both are very helpful, made suggestions as to what we should visit, made reservations and we returned they always checked if we enjoyed our day. We highly recommend a stay at Intaba !

For my work, I have had to stay in many different places in Cape Town (lodges, backpackers, ...) before finally deciding to move in Cape Town. The best place I have stayed in is definitely Intaba Lodge: the view from the terrace is breathtaking, the breakfast is served to you by the owners themselves, the beautiful garden must take so many hours to tend, the advices from the owners regarding the places to eat in Cape Town are very good, ...
But the thing that actually most sets this lodge apart from the others I have visited is the way the rooms have been furnished (and I have been in almost all of them. For the same price as any other lodge in Hout Bay, you get furniture that would not look out of place in an old french mansion, whereas the others give you only the equivalent of SA's Ikea beds, tables and chairs.
In short, it is luxury and it is definitely worth a stop (or more).

Definitely the best accommodation in Cape Town!

On our first visit at Intaba Lodge, although my partner and I were on a business trip, the luxury of our room, the amazing views over the mountains, the relaxing nature setting, and the impeccable service made us feel like we were on a honeymoon.

There was nothing like going back to Intaba Lodge after a long hard day at work, to relax by the pool, surrounded by the most beautiful and peaceful garden we’d ever seen in South Africa (better than Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden!).

We always go back to Intaba Lodge for the peaceful atmosphere, the beautiful luxurious rooms and the helpful and knowledgeable hosts.

If you’ve ever had the fantasy of living in a treetop house, I strongly recommend booking the Tree Cottage. It’s our favourite with its own large private terrace from which to enjoy the view over the valley with a glass of wine and/or a self-cooked meal.
