It's a spot to real let your worries go and relax. Nice gardens, with a tranquil environment... the spaciousness of the accommodations adds to the whole experience. I found every thing i need to regain my sanity and recharge here, definitely recommend it.

Kings place was absolutely lovely. Value for money and an ideal place to relax and take in the sights. Staff were helpful and out of sight giving us that "holiday feeling". Apartment had all the amenities. Felt like a home away from home. Well done the kings place.

The King's place is the most super place to stay. Nestled in the quiet, peaceful sanctity of Hout Bay - it is the only place we like to stay in Cape Town. The Kings get the balance perfect - they are available whilst not being constantly popping in. We love The King's Place and will be returning for our third... More

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. We will return as it's such a lovely, relaxing place to... More

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.
