Stunning Home! Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

This house is well named "Mountsea" - nestled in the folds of Table Mountain with magnificent views over False Bay. Our first stay here in 2010 was so good we came back 3 years later. Spotlessly clean, impeccably maintained, secure and with all the space and facilities you'll need - this really is a home away from home.

Miles and Gilly are most generous hosts and could not do enough to make our stay completely stress free. They made arranging our stay from Australia so easy, and were only a phone call away if we had any questions during our stay.

We have stayed in both summer and winter and the house is well provided for in both seasons; with a gorgeous pool to cool off in summer and an open fire in the lounge to warm those winter nights.

For our family, it's not a question of if we'll go back to Mountsea, but when, and I cannot recommend it and its owners more highly.

A family holiday that should never end

  • 5 of 5

If, as a family we could have chosen another family home to stay in it would have been Mountsea in Muizeenberg. It felt like a match made in heaven and when we met the family who own it, it became clear why we loved it so much. Mountsea and the owners are filled with love for Cape Town, family and fun. It was by far the best trip we've had, perfect house, perfect location and thoughtful owners who made us so welcome. Next time we are back in SA there is only one place we will want to stay and that is Mountsea. Thank you for the best holiday experience EVER and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

The house was everything it said on the tin!

  • 5 of 5

Hill crest was everything we expected from the website, a delightfully lived in house which was perfect for us and 3 children. There was everything you could think you might need. We all enjoyed the swimming pool especially as the weather was so perfect. Muizinburg is a great area to stay in as it is so handy for getting places,we found driving to and from very easy. Miles and Gilly couldn't have been nicer "landlords" and very helpful. The area its self was good with great access to a variety of supermarkets! And a very helpful Dr surgery which we used. We didn't eat out at night with the little people but had some great lunches at various vineyards again such easy drives. We would defiantly recommend HillCrest to any one thinking of heading to the Cape. We would go back again.
