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 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

The Beach House in Hout Bay, South Africa is heaven on earth. From the moment we stepped into the house we felt we were home. Our host Maryann and Marieka are the most welcoming hosts I have ever met. They were always accommodating and you always felt you `re special. On our first day I was asked what I liked... More

We can't thank the staff enough for our stay here! We spent 5 nights here in December and they made my girlfriend and I feel like family. The location was perfect, breakfast was spectacular and the hospitality was the best we had encountered almost anywhere in the world. The rooms are spacious although quite basic but there's so much to... More

Large rooms and some with a beach/harbour view. It is on a busy road so you will get some morning road noise as the local town gets on with the day. It has secure off street parking and a great common area with and outdoor relaxation space next to a sparkling pool.
