“Great find.....”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

A great little B&B idealy situated overlooking the stunning Hout Bay. The views really are superb! The friendly owners arranged our tranfers and car hire although we also found it very straight forward to get to the centre of Cape Town using public transport. The Blue Route Tour Bus even picks up and drops off at Hout Bay Marina. We will certainly stay here again on our next visit to Cape Town. thanks very much to Bryan, Drew and your staff, see you soon .....

Hello Izzy

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Hout Bay View. It is advertising that we simply cannot buy and offers a real insight for prospective guests. Your kind comments are very pleasing as we work hard at the small details so the overall experience is enjoyable. I will let all the staff know how pleased you both were.

Very best regards

Having a chance of a return visit to cape town I stayed again in Hout Bay View. Great service again and I also got 10% off my bill as a return guest. Summer is great in South Africa and I was blessed with clear skies and high temps . still bowled over by the view and the very friendly relaxed atmosphere throughout the guest house. It was nice to chat with other guests from around the world. I had a different room this time and it was very comfortable and again the free 24 hour Wi Fi is invaluable to get work done and look for information. Thank you again for a thoroughly enjoyable stay

What a rejuvenating experience. Treated like Royalty in this enchanted, drenched in calm establishment. With magic in every corner of this beautiful home. The rooms are fully equipped with fridge and TV. There is a complimentary tray with tea and coffee in your room. spacious shower with wrap around me forever towels. The linnen to die for. The views are beyond words. To restore yourself and be calm once more - The Perfect Getaway.

Hout Bay View has to be one of the finds of the Western Cape. Located a few miles south of Cape Town, this small and personal guest house is ideally located to give easy access to all of the regions attractions. A short drive to Table Mountain, on the edge of Chapmans Peak, an hour from the stunning wine regions - it could not be in a better position. The guest house itself is immaculate. My room was perfect, with a small fridge, TV and radio, and the best shower - always a winner!. The beds, and bedding, were also of the highest quality, as were the towels - small but very important touches. Breakfast served in the lounge area was a great chance to exchange recommendations with other guests, and the guest house grounds had been thoughtfully equipped with al fresco tables making the most of the stunning views. All the amenities of Hout Bay, including some great restaurants, alongside supermarkets and banks if needed, are all just a short walk away. All in all, a very relaxing 8 days, and Drew and Brian, along with their hard working staff, are the perfect hosts,

Room Tip: For a boutique guest house like this, all rooms will deliver - I was just off the main lounge, which...

We stayed in the "Hout Bay View" during our first few nights in the Cape Town area. A bit nervous (this was our first, but certainly not our last trip to South Africa), we were welcomed warmly by Andrew and his staff. The room was a bit small, but very well looked after, clean and tidy. Breakfast was served in a very friendly atmosphere in the lounge area. We were very happy with having chosen the Hout Bay View!

N.B. In case you wonder: Downtown Cape Town is approx. 25-35 minutes away, allow 40 minutes to the airport outside rushhour.

Room Tip: All rooms have their own access to the pool/patio area.

The guest house is well looked after with the views the website promises and a nice pool and hot tub. Andrew who runs the place tries hard to make his guests stay a pleasant one and the other staff are very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good, buffet service with eggs, bacon etc cooked to order.
Slight downsides are that it is a little too far to walk to restaurants in the evening and the standard rooms are very small, they do have everything you need but unless a single i would definitely recommend booking a deluxe or suite room.
