Tacked away in a part of Houtbay, Cape Town where there is lots of nature and peace. It's clean and comfortable. Very good for an extended stay or just over night.

It's not luxurious, but the staff are friendly, our room was supplied for self catering,... More

It was very sad to see such a run down place with such potential - It was my third trip to Cape Town and looking at Waterland's Web site we thought that it was perfect for us (8 in total). When we arrived it was very clear that the place was not as suggested on the internet. The rooms were... More

This party was very difficult. We have offered all guests updated and additional photo's on request. The electrics was the TV antenna cable! They complained of spider webs on the outside furniture. I had varnished it the previous day - this is Africa in summer and spiders spin webs quickly! I have independent witnesses regarding the so called dirt -... More
