We have travelled extensively to many countries and many luxury hotels around the globe. To date, we have never found that special secret we felt needed to be shared with our fellow travellers. Until now.
Voted #9 Hidden Gem WORLDWIDE by TripAdvisor's Traveller's Choice Awards 2008, this place has a lot to stand up to. And stand up it does. We stayed in an elegant and contemporary three bedroom cottage – with outdoor BBQ and every amenity. Our two kids loved the swimming pool, playground, hammock and feeding the hundreds of koi fish in the pond. Mark was wonderful at taking time to unveil all the areas’ secrets, including a great Thai restaurant, the best beach café, baboon hikes, whale watching, gem hunts, a cheetah outreach center and loads of stellar wineries, farms and unique shopping opportunities. A week proved just too short. Ideally situated and nestled in the beautiful hills of Hout Bay, with friendly staff and owners which go the extra mile to help with your every need – there is nothing lacking.
At the end of our stay, we seriously pondered on selling our house and moving to this wonderfully relaxed treasure spot. The best value for money in the country. Certainly for us and even for TripAdvisor – it is truly one of the world’s best ‘Hidden Gems’!
