“Very friendly & helpful owner”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Our 3rd visit to this property confirms our opinion that it is a spacious, comfortable cottage in a beautiful garden setting with excellent sea views. Situated in a safe and secure area but convenient for all Hout Bay restaurants and shopping ideal for touring the Cape Peninsula and Winelands
The owner live on site and is always available should there be any problems the large swimming pool is a bonus on hot sunny days

“Not a pleasant stay”
Reviewed 7 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed at the Cottage with my wife for 4 days in January 2017. The place is spacious and has good privacy. However, the front door needs blinds for privacy. The bed and bedding in the main bedroom needs to be replaced! (white bed linen is recommended). The whole place needs some spring cleaning! Squirrels running around on the roof at night is a nuisance, kept us awake at night. Branches on the roof should be trimmed. Richard, the owner is however friendly and the reception was good. Some of the apartment's pictures placed online are misleading. (i.e. the picture of the swimming pool is showing the main-house and not the cottage). Did not have a pleasant stay at all!

Dear Bescy, I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay as you always appeared to be very happy with everything. Yes, the squirrels do run a round sometimes as we have many trees in the garden. We quite enjoy them. But we have also trimmed the trees since you were here. The bed in the main bedroom is quite new and no one has complained of it before. The bedding is beige to match the décor but is clean and also fairly new. All the photos are of the cottage except the one of the pool as this is located near the main house.

We have great reviews normally so I am very sorry if it did not suit you. We will however take your comments to heart.

Best Regards, Richard

“Best Holiday Ever”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Our Holiday at Mountain Rise Cottage was superb we enjoyed every moment of it the hospitality of the host,the family and their workers is very good the house omw is Beautiful and clean the porch is a nice place for breakfast in the morning and to relax at night after a nice swim, The pool is awesome and so is the view from the porch,if you need a home away from home in a nice and relaxed environment then Mountain rise cottage is the place to be.I will definitely recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to spoil themselves in style and we will definitely be returning there again next year.

Thank you to Richard H and his family for a nice holiday.

“One of the best holidays ever”
Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The cottage is in an upmarket area of Hout Bay which is secluded and peaceful. The accommodation is very large, it is serviced three times a week and is kept spotless. The large patio offers fantastic views down through the valley to the bay which is surrounded by stunning mountains. Breakfast and evenings on the patio are simply wonderful when sharing a chilled bottle of wine. The whole property is secure and safe and offers a very relaxing atmosphere. The hosts are extremely friendly and their recommendations are very welcome. We are looking forward to returning for another wonderful holiday experience
