“Fantastic rooms with a spectacular view and beautiful garden”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

We had a fireplace IN OUR ROOM, what a lyxury, a spectacular view from the breakfast veranda and excellent breakfasts. A very accomodating host and a nice dog to play with. The garden was beautiful and inviting for slow walks in contemplation. Great pool and a winter-garden for chilly days. I really recommend this place for shorter or longer stays.

The magic of Intaba Lodge operated again ... It was our second stay in this guest house: my fiancee and I had stayed there 3 years ago and both had retained a lovely memory of this delightful magical house perched on the mountain. So much so we decided to go back after our wedding and I must say that we were not disappointed. Breakfasts served on the veranda overlooking the mountains are always unique. This winter, we booked an independent cottage, charming and very comfortable. We specially loved theviews, the huge garden with all the birds ! We have (re) discovered the Cape region marvels from Intaba Lodge and recommend to all this great French address.

Tired of big hotels? Only twenty minutes away from downtown, Intaba Lodge is nestled in a very quiet area of Houtbay with superb views of the rear of Table Mountain. Owned and run by a friendly French couple, Intaba Lodge offers everything you can expect from a luxury retreat : tranquillity, space, privacy, confort and beauty! What makes the difference with a big hotel is that Valerie and Pierre-Marie will make you feel at home! This is why my spouse and I were so delighted with our stay at Intaba Lodge.

What we liked the best about that wonderful place is its feel of space and quiet. The breakfasts on the veranda were really awsome !
We really enjoyed the pool, well established in the lush garden and surrounded by the montains and overlooking the valley.
The room was spacious, very comfortable, very clean and the little patio was very nice to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening...
The hosts were always helpful and discreet.
A place to recommend absolutely !
We will be back again.

ideally located between Cape town, Cape point and the rest of the region, this lodge very well kept, is perfectly managed by a charming couple.
Lot of advise, different maps of the region are available and lent.

So enjoyable was our stay that we extended it. Quiet and relaxing, yet offering easy access to all that Cape Town has to offer, Intaba Lodge is worth visiting. Couple the above with warm and friendly hospitality, great rooms affording lovely views across to the hills, and you have the ingredients to kickstart a memorable holiday.

Pierre-Marie and Valerie were very accommodating as we arrived earlier than expected!
We had the greenhouse suite, seperate from the main building. Great size, with seperate living room.
So quiet and comfortable.
Breakfasts out on the verandah, superb and efficient. Food was to a High standard.
This was our last place to stay before flying home and would definitely visit here again!
We had an early rise to get to the airport and Valerie made sure we had a light continental breakfast, prepared in advance,available in our room
thank you
