Absolutely fabulous villa with a real wow factor. Easy communications from start to finish. Our welcome was warm and very professional. The villa itself is amazing and very safe. Electronic gate and garage door is very convenient and operated remotely. The Villa is very modern with every possible mod con including coffee maker, central music system playing music in ever room (volume controls in each room), Dumb Waiter to carry the shopping onto first floor kitchen, Rain shower, fantastic BBQ area, pool etc etc. Everything was spotless and in perfect condition. The gardens are gorgeous and a real credit to the gardener, (sorry forgotten his name). The pool was the only disappointment as it stated heated but turned out that there was a problem which was to be fixed. We were lucky with the warm weather so a cold pool was quite welcome! Couldn't recommend Hout Bay Villa enough, so quiet but yet very convenient to Cape Town, Camps Bay, The Cape etc. We also enjoyed Hout Bay with the beautiful bay, harbour, bars and shops. God willing we hope to stay again. thank you Alex and Cheryl.

Hout Bay is the hidden gem of Cape Town. A picturesque seaside village surrounded by stunning national park mountains and only accessible via three breathtaking mountain passes yet only 20 minutes from the city centre and all its attractions, such as Table mountain, the Robben Island ferry, and V&A Waterfront. The village offers full shopping facilities, numerous cafés and restaurants, a huge white sand beach offering a full range of aquatic sports, Africa's largest bird sanctuary, glass-bottomed boat trips to Seal Island and the new acclaimed harbour market. The world-renowned Kirstenbosch Gardens with its summer outdoor concerts is a mere ten minute drive as is the Constantia wine land route. Incredible mountain hiking trails are on the doorstep. The unforgettable cliff-hugging Chapman's Peak drive leads down to the Cape of Good Hope.
