Hout Bay View
Ranked #27 of 59 Hout Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 December 2008

A very personal and friendly guest house with amazing views of Hout Bay, Chapman's Peak and Table Mountain. There is a lovely pool and a hot tub under the stars.

A quiet and relaxing location just 20 mintues from Cape Town along a spectacular coastal drive with easy access to the Constantia Wine Route and the Cape Peninsular. There is a working harbour with resident seals and a wide safe beach.

The accommodation is clean and well appointed with friendly hosts who provide a cooked breakfast every morning!!

Good restaurants nearby with amenities within a couple of minutes drive including a great Woolworths (like an upmarket M & S) and the post office and banks.

My husband & I have stayed at Hout Bay View every year now for the last 3 years whenever we have holidayed in Cape Town. The reason we have returned each time is because it has felt like a home from home. Andrew & Bryan are superb hosts and genuinely enjoy making your stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible and nothing is ever too much.
The breakfasts will set you up for the day and are second to none and don't forget to ask for the heart-shaped fried eggs!!!
The rooms are decently sized and comfortable with en-suite facilities and the view from the main terrace is breath-taking where you can often spot whales in the Bay in the Summer months and enjoy the sunset colours as they hit Chapman's Peak drive.
Hout Bay View is situated conveniently in a quiet suburb only a couple of minutes drive from the beach and Hout Bay town making it handy to get to the huge choice of local restaurants that make Hout Bay so popular! It also only takes 15 - 20 minutes to drive along the undeniably spectacular and panoramic coastal road into central Cape Town city and all the attractions.
There is ample off-road parking and the jacuzzi at the back is fabulous for watching the sun set with a Savannah Dry or two!
We would definitely recommend Hout Bay View to anyone who wants a special place to base themselves for a holiday in Cape Town where they will receive unsurpassed hosptality.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our last 2 nights in Cape Town this April and were really impressed with Hout Bay View. The guesthouse is run by a really lovely British guy, Andrew who is incredibly helpful and makes you feel very welcome - nothing is too much trouble.
Our room was huge ( and very secure) with ensuite facilities and right next to the lovely pool and great terrace hot tub with unbeatable views across Hout Bay and the surrounding mountains. There is also a fab terrace area to the front of the guesthouse with equally amazing views, perfect for a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.
I would highly recommend this guesthouse for anyone wanting to explore areas south of Cape Town e.g. Simonstown, Boulders Bay, Cape Point etc It's also a very quick drive around to Llandudno and the lively Camps Bay. It offers great value and a really friendly and personal service.
