My sister stayed at the Beach House for two weeks. She told me how friendly the staff were. We found this to be the case and the price was very reasonable and plenty of secure parking. Would recommend for the price!

We stayed in 2 different rooms because there was no availability in one for the 4 days that we were in Hout Bay, but that did not deter us because it offered us the opportunity to know what we would prefer the next time we would stay. Conclusion is that as lovely as Suite 8 is on the deck, the... More

This was our first South African B&B experience and we were impressed. MaryAnn welcomed us well and was very helpful with getting us situated. We had a room on the outside, lower area. The room was comfy and clean. We did not mind that it was cozy, the value for the low price was already amazing. The place is surrounded... More

Spent a few nights at this lovely little bay which was a good base to explore the Cape. The guest house and staff were lovely. I really enjoyed the continental breakfast. Due to distance from Cape Town you really need your own transport although there is the option of the Myciti bus. (Thanks to Maryann for helping sort out transport... More

I am a regular at this establishment trying to visit at least once a year. The staff are friendly and helpful, you soon feel like family. The breakfast is out of this world. The rates are fair and very competitive compared to other houses that I have visited in the past. The view is breathtaking and once you fall in... More

Our (upstairs) room was clean but very cramped with our luggage. Perhaps a queen size bed instead of a king size may be a better option. The shower/toilet area is also very small. The dunes in front of the establishment were being bulldozed during our 2 day stay - this should provide future guests with a lovely view of the... More

I wrote this review to let everyone who read it know that beach house guest house Hout bay, South Africa is a fabulous place to stay. It is home from home. Maryann and the staff cannot do enough for you. Breakfast was great and the position of the guest house is perfect- on beach and close to all amenites. We... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were amazingly friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and organized. Morning food was fresh and delicious. All aroun, great! The only bummer is I didn't realize how difficult it is to get in and out of Hout Bay. If you don't have your own car, I recommend saying in Camps bay.... More

We stayed only for one night as we had a wedding up at Suikerbossie, but we were welcomed like old friends and Maryann and Marieka really went the extra mile for us. The location is great, with only a short walk to the harbour and beach. The breakfast is truly what you would expect from South African hosts - ABUNDANT,... More
