My husband and I loved our stay at the CUBE! Dirk and Patrick are the consummate hosts. We felt very welcomed and cared for during our time with them. Their home is a modern delight, with outstanding 360° views of the beautiful Hout Bay area. We had the pleasure of staying in the superb Cosmopolitan Suite, which features a decadently... More

We stayed here to unwind and relax after a 2 weeks safari and CUBE over delivered on both fronts. Patrick and Dirk were away when we stayed but Chester was so very welcoming, kind, hospitable and informative, we can't imagine a nicer and more friendly service. We stayed in the corner suite with a stunning view of the gardens and... More

we can't say enough about the wonderful hospitality of Dirk and Patrick. Their inn is lovely contemporary, beautiful grounds, great breakfasts with lovely staff, and great canine friends! We weren't there but 3 nights but they were so memorable. Dirk made sure that we had a great itinerary every day. And, I left something behind and he sent it to... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first few days of our honeymoon. Our room was modern, clean and comfortable. Lovely garden and pool area, and fantastic breakfast every morning. Because there are only a maximum of 10 guests at a time, we had the most amazing service from our hosts and the staff. They were extremely accommodating and... More

The place was simply beautiful. It was serene and picturesque. It was a nice ending to our adventures in Cape Town because we stayed there just a few days before we left for home. On our last day we just lounged lazily on the day bed with the mountain as our view. The pool was also heated (though still a... More

We have been to the CUBE Guest House for the second time now, and it sure won't have been the last time. The hosts, Dirk and Patrick, are very nice guys and gladly help you with any questions you might have or recommendations you might need. When we arrived, it felt like coming back home, and we had a wonderful... More

We first stayed at the CUBE in 2013 and had an amazing time, so when we found out our friends were getting married in Cape Town and we were coming back to the area, of course we booked a couple more nights with our favourite hosts, Dirk and Patrick. The setting is gorgeous, breakfast delicious, and the guys are so... More

We stayed three nights at the Cube and loved it. The location is great to visit Cape of Good hope, Camps Bay or Constantia. Our room was spacious, well decorated with a nice terrasse overlooking the pool and the garden, with a see view. What makes the real difference at the Cube are the owners, Dirk and Patrick, and the... More

If we come back to Hout Bay we will definitely book the Cube! Amazing stylish house with amazing view. Big and very good breakfast! Dirk and Patrick are very friendly and helpful, they will advise you where to go and what to do. The plus, they have the most 2 beautiful and friendly dogs Paul and Milla!!
