Scott Estate House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, lounge w/flat TV, WiFi, gourmet kitchen, garden pool

My Villa Tivoli offers its guests a safe, comfortable, clean and relaxing home. WiFi is available as well.

The Villa Tivoli is surrounded by a wonderful garden in which a so-called rock pool is found in the middle for swimming and sunbathing. The house itself gives off a warm and comfortable character. Other than the often empty cement constructions, you should and can 'be' different here...

You will experience a lot of luxury in a special and individual way.

You will be surrounded by interesting sculptures, paintings and photographs. In the house and on the large partially covered terrace you will find a lot of cosy options for sitting and the nice kitchen landscape invites you to cook together.

Each room has well-kept beds, furniture and Tivoli radios. In the spacious living room you can read, watch TV or enjoy your music through a great high end system.

You will not be bored in the house .... that is certain ....

Our family was so lucky to find this beautiful house. It is located in a the safe and beautiful area of Hout Bay. The house is equipped with everything you need even washing machine and dryer which was perfect for us. The property was very clean.

In Hout Bay you find shops and restaurants only minutes from the house. The restaurants we visited were very good.

We can highly recommend this house.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely decorated has lots of space and everything you need for your comfort. It is nicely located close to the places to go. You have a wonderful view to the mountains and the garden is full of trees and flowers. There are 2 separate bathrooms equiped with showers and toilets and 1 open ensuite bathroom upstairs in the master bedroom. The kitchen has everything from expresso machine to microwave.

When we arrived the owners where still cleaning and redecorating the house as some wild people left a bit of a mess including a demaged amplifier. But they offered us a nice glass of vine and once that was finished the house was in perfect shape.

We love to come back to this wonderful house and warmhearded owners.

What a beautiful hide-away!

  • 5 of 5

African style, cozy and spacious house with everything you need for a relaxing holiday! Two terraces, barbecue place, adorable garden with pool and lounge chairs. Master bedroom has two balconies. Fully equipped with everything you need.

Situated in a very safe area (whole Hout Bay is a safe place to be) surrounded by mountains, sometimes you could even hear the sound of the ocean wich is nearby. Can be a bit windy in afternoons during Jan (Southeaster) like it is in the whole capetwown area and close to the ocean.

WE slept wonderfully and loved the galery of the Master bedroom. If you do not like the open bathroom (the shower was totaly fine when we were there middle of Jan), there are two more bedrooms with adequate privacy.

But: this house is definetely not a party house or a house suitable for groups who want to party. It is perfect for a couple or a family.

Doesn't live up to expectations

  • 2 of 5

We were very excited to stay here, but unfortunately there are a lot of things which don't make our stay great.

The house seems to be situated in a very unfortunate place because the wind seems to be funnelled down the mountain and it blows a gale almost incessantly, even when it is not windy anywhere else in Cape Town. The whole house is made of wood which means there is a constant creaking at all times of the day and night, making it very difficult to get a good night's sleep.

The main bedroom is on a mezzanine floor, which means that at all times you can hear anyone in the lounge/kitchen downstairs, which doesn't make life great if one person wants to sleep while others are up.

Furthermore, there are few curtains in the main bedroom, and none in the lounge at all, so you cannot sleep past daybreak anyway.

These three things conspired to make sleep elusive for the entirety of our holiday! My wife was in fact excited to get home so she could finally get a proper sleep!

A few other issues which we didn't think were ideal:

The main bedroom and bathroom is open plan, so your partner in the bedroom can see you when you use the toilet (some people may not have an issue with this, but we do!)

The bathroom floor upstairs is warped (the whole house is wood), and whenever you walk across it is makes the most monumental amount of sound. There is a bedroom below, which means anyone sleeping downstairs is woken up with a shock any time you use the bathroom during the night.

We were not allowed to use the shower in the main bedroom because it leaks into the bedroom below.

The 3rd bedroom is actually outside (a sort of semi-detached cottage). There was no key for the door, so we were informed we had to keep the door unlocked at all times. This is South Africa, it has a few issues with crime! This certainly doesn't lend itself to a restful night of sleep!

The most unfortunate thing was that the amplifier in the lounge blew up and we were immediately accused of maliciously breaking it. We were told the sound system was worth over R300 000, and would have to buy the owner a new amplifier worth €20 000! Only after a lot of negotiation did we manage to convince the owner we didn't destroy his amplifier and in the end were lucky enough to pay only R3 000 for repairs. In the interim however, being accused of malicious damage and threatened with excessive bills caused a lot of stress while we should have being enjoying our holiday.

Owner's Response: Es war keine glückliche Fügung! Ein junges Paar buchte unser liebevoll eingerichtetes Haus. Kaum eingetroffen - machten sie sich an die Arbeit und schufen Platz. Sämtliches Mobiliar, Bilder und Skulpturen wurden umgeräumt und weggeräumt. Unser Zuhause wurde sprichwörtlich auf den Kopf gestellt. Bei dem Versuch die Lautsprecher zu verrücken hatten sich dann die Kabelenden gelöst und verursachten sodurch einen Kurzschluss und Totalschaden am Verstärker. Die Schuld an diesem fahrlässigen Schaden wiesen unsere Gäste trotzdem von sich. Eine große und wertvolle Skulptur ist ebenfalls zu Fall gekommen und beschädigte beim Aufprall die Treppe im Eingangsbereich. Zeitweise beherbergten unsere jungen Gäste bis zu 25 weitere Personen die dann - laut Aussage der Nachbarn und Reinigungskraft überall auf dem Grundstück und auf der Terrasse umherlagen. Das Haus wurde uns dann von einem uns unbekannten jungen Mann übergeben - das junge Paar selbst war ja bereits abgereist. Die ganze Angelegenheit war nicht lustig - und wir waren gewiss auch nicht mehr nett zu diesen Gästen.

Traumhaus mit Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Tivoli ist ein absolutes Traumhaus mit toller Aussicht und afrikanischen " Lodge Charme" - eigentlich ein Urlaubshöhepunkt für sich. Wir haben uns immer sicher gefühlt ( guarded area ) und Joachim ist wirklich entspannt und verlässlich. Wenn es stürmt, kann die Nacht abenteuerlich werden - ist halt ein Holzhaus. Hout Bay ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Natur, in Kapstadt ist man mit dem PKW in ca. 20 Minuten. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

Erholen und abschalten in einem Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften 4 Wochen in diesem wunderschönen Haus verbringen. Die Beschreibung und die Bilder auf der Online Beschreibung versprechen nicht zu viel. Es ist einfach alles da, was man braucht um sich wohl zu fühlen und entspannen zu können. Das Haus strahlt eine wohltuende Atmosphäre aus, in welcher man sich sofort entspannt. Die nähe zur Natur welche das Holzhaus einem ermöglicht ist einfach einmalig . Die Umgebung ist ruhig und sehr gepflegt. Wir haben uns stets sicher gefühlt. Vom Eigentümer sind wir sehr herzlich und offen empfangen worden, so dass wir uns sofort zu Hause fühlten. Er gab uns viele hilfreiche Informationen, führte uns in die "Motorradwelt" von Kapstadt ein und war stets erreichbar wenn wir Fragen oder Anliegen hatten. Wir besuchten die Sprachschule in Seapoint und konnten das Haus in diesen vier Wochen zum lernen, entspannen und einfach sein, so richtig geniessen. Die Lage eignet sich jedoch auch ausgezeichnet um die Gegend erkunden zu können. Das Einkaufszentrum Woolworth in Haut Bay verkauft Lebensmittel mit ausgezeichneter Qualität so dass der BBQ Grill von uns fast täglich gebraucht wurde. Wir haben viel Zeit in Haut Bay verbracht. Tolle Spaziergänge unternommen, den Seehunden zugeschaut, am Hafen fein gegessen oder den Kunstmarkt am Sonntag besucht. Lieber Achim herzlichen Dank für die tolle Zeit, wir planen bereits unseren nächsten Aufenthalt in Kapstadt und natürlich in der Villa Tivoli. Christian und Marlen

Hout Bay is located just a 'stone's throw' from the vibrating metropolis of Cape Town. You can drive out of the centre of Cape Town, along the coast past Camps Bay and the 12 apostles and you will be at Hout Bay after a few minutes. Hout Bay (the wooden bay) is the ideal place for rest and relaxation. Ideal for a safe family holiday. And still you will find the best restaurants (Kitima), nice bars, good breakfast cafes (Darios) and supermarkets, boutiques and doctors, everything that you need. our house, the Villa Tivoli - is located in the best location in Hout Bay above the famous Chapman's Peak - one of the most beautiful panorama streets in the world - with a view of the beautiful Valley Hout Bays. During the night, you can even hear the whales singing. More information and photos can be received under, alternatively we can recommend a place in the old city - search for it under the holiday apartment Villa Geneva!

Other Activities: Motorcycling
