Great spot, great views from breakfast area, rooms clean and small number of rooms is perfect if you want a quiet stay. Breakfasts excellent and all staff were very attentive! Hot tub with a view over bay was a welcome surprise! Would definitely recommend a stay here!

This will be my second visit to Hout Bay View, the first was a number of years ago. What a great job they have done with renovations. So wonderfully calm and the views are simply magnificent. The rooms are very comfortable and the attention to detail makes the stay very welcoming. All the staff are polite and cannot do enough for you and any request is always considered. The Free WiFi is a real bonus and the breakfast was delightful and always fresh and appetizing. The guest house is very clean and the bed was so comfortable I slept for ever.

Thank you to all at Hout Bay View. I will definitely be back.

Excellent B&B with eight rooms and modern decor. Attentive owners and staff. We used the great room, the outdoor patio with a stunning view of the mountains and bay, the pool, and the hot tub, all excellent, and stayed two weeks in February, 2013. Thanks, Bryan and Drew.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

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 .....

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.
