We stayed at Poplar Tree Lodge for a wonderful two weeks in February 2013 and it is a wonderful place to stay. The accommodation is nestled on the mountainside overlooking Hout Bay and the consistent quiet is punctuated only by the sound of birdsong and crickets. Vivienne is a welcoming hostess who gave us great advice on what to see... More

My partner and I stayed several weeks at Poplar Tree Lodge and we loved it! Fantastic value for money and you get so much space in each apartment! It's like having your own home. All beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Lots of decent channels on the TV and good wifi. Very secure parking as well and the neighbourhood felt totally... More

I stayed at Poplar Tree Lodge for 5 nights as a solo guest in April 2013. The owners are an absolute delight, the accommodation is spotless and faultless. Vivian the owner very thoughtfully upgraded me to a larger suite as it was free, and what a treat. Lovely views from the front window down over the valley, peace and quiet,... More

We spend 2 nights at this lodge in Hout Bay. Just a 30 minute ride from CPT airport, we arrived late evening welcomed by our Vivienne (the host) who quickly showed us around our beautiful suite with large terrace with great view. We enjoyed breakfast service which was very well prepared by Vivienne and served on the porche. Very relaxing... More

We had an amazing week at Poplar Tree Lodge - the location is great if you want to be close to Cape Town, but not right in the city. It's easy to get to all the attractions by car. Viv is a great host and we can't wait to go back!

My family recently moved to Hout Bay, so I needed a new place to stay while visiting. I booked early with the Poplar Tree Lodge, and arrived the 17th of December. Everyone at the Lodge made me feel welcome. Vivienne and Marshall are wonderful hosts. They are available to answer questions and help with directions to the area. I stayed... More

One of the best places we've ever visited. Vivienne's service and personality is great. Will recomment this to any person. The rooms are big,clean and well decorated. The unit was serviced everyday and left very tidy. The view is good. Vivienne were very helpful in exploring the Cape. Excellant place to stay.

This, our 2nd stay at Poplar Tree Lodge, was as good as the first. We really enjoyed coming back and Vivienne was as accommodating as ever. Nothing has changed in the 2.5 yrs we have been away, the standard of accommodation remains excellent and in our opinion great value. Opt for the Tree Tops Suite, it has a great outdoor... More

What a nice surprise!!! Very neat, clean, tastefully decorated accommodation overlooking Hout Bay. The reception was warm and friendly and I felt like it was home away from home. I stayed for 6 nights, wish I could have stayed longer. Whenever I come to Cape Town again for business, I'll be staying at Poplar.
