We stayed there for 4 nights before Christmas 2013. Lynette & Coco (the dog) were wonderful hosts that created that “home away from home feeling”.

Nenya is situated in an quite suburb with wonderful mountain views and is... More

What a great place, it's private and luxurious but it also feels like home - Lynette is an amazing host. Hout Bay is a really good base for a Cape Town visit, and this guesthouse is a perfect location within it. We'll definitely return!

We spent 5 days in the Woodpecker suite at Nenya guesthouse. It was our first place to stay during our first trip to South Africa. The guesthouse is nicely located in a very calm and green area of Hout Bay with Capetown and Constantia in close reach. We felt like being at home from the very beginning and enjoyed the... More

Returned for another visit and Nenya and Lynette still as welcoming as ever. Hout Bay is a great location and Nenya is the perfect place to stay, either to relax and do very little or as a base to visit may of the attractions that are only a short drive away, Chapmans Peak, Llandudno, Camps Bay, Kirstenbosh, Constancia, etc. etc....

This was our second visit to Nenya with Lynette and Coco. This time we stayed for three weeks.Totally relaxing,warm and friendly. Would highly recommend Nenya as one of the best guest houses in South Africa! The weekend evening market at Hout Bay Harbour is well worth a visit!
