Breathtaking location and first class accommodation. We stayed in the top notch Angelica suite. So comfortable but with an understated luxury. It was winter so the underfloor heating was a real treat. What a cozy, first class experience. The owner, Mark, went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed, even bringing food so our young children... More

I don't want to write this review as I don't want anyone else to know about this place. It's a simple as that. The perfect place for our holiday. I love Cape Town and me and my family love The Tarragon. Breakfast on the veranda overlooking the pool. Braai in the evening as the sun sets. All That Cape Town... More

We loved our stay at the Tarragon. It is a beautiful property with gardens overlooking the hills of Hout Bay. It is a great base in a relaxing location for exploring the Cape if you are self driving. Our room, Jasmine, was large and very comfortable, next to Koi ponds where we could feed the fish. The owner, Mark, was... More

I booked for two nights at Saffron for a business trip. Aside from the location - which is glorious, the owners and staff were wonderful! I will definitely book again next time I am in South Africa!!!

The Tarragon is a beautiful retreat nestled within the trees on the edge of Table Mountain. There are 5 villa's to choose from, all well furnished. We booked Jasmine and Ivy, for two families in March this year. Mark, the owner is a great host who makes you feel right at home. There is good security around the beautiful gardens... More

I stayed at the Tarragon with my husband and two kids in April of this year. The bungalows are top notch. They are stylish and very comfortable. You are well looked after by the staff (they will do washing for you and it's not expensive). The view from the terraces and pool is stunning both by day and night. We... More

If you are looking for a quiet, safe and beautiful location close to Cape Town, then this is probably the best place you can stay. The Tarragon is situated on the southern slope of the Table Mountain massif in a forest, in one of the best quarters of Hout Bay. The cottages are built in a large garden with swimming... More
