Everything you need is provided, the view is lovely, the pool just a few metres away and Grace and her team are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble.

The King's place is great! We stayed in the Valley house and all was perfect. There is so much space in all the rooms, the living area and the kitchen. And it gets even better outside; the gardens and pool are fantastic. We would def recommend staying at The King's Place if you are looking for accomodation in Houtbay.

We weren't an easy group - 10 teenagers and 3 grown-ups. We stayed in Cape Town for the South African Junior Chess Championships. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated. Excellent accommodation. Attention was given to our needs. I will recommend it any time.

We stayed in the Pool room which was very fresh and nicely furnished. The owner was very friendly as were the staff, we felt very safe. Highly recommended if you plan to explore Cape Town and want to avoid staying in the city centre.
