Great service and a wonderful environment for the whole family. There is a relaxed atmosphere while ensuring everything is taken care of and service is of top priority. The only complaint is that the wifi is slow. Besides for the Internet there is nothing I can fault the owners and managers on.

We had an amazing stay at the tarragon for 6 nights in oct 14. We travelled to capetown with 2 kids 5 and 2 and they loved the house and especially the pool which was heated and warm despite it being oct. Mark and Julia were excellent hosts throughout and available at all times for any queries. The accommodation was... More

It was our first trip to South Africa, a wonderful month in a beautiful country. We stayed in a number of nice guest houses, with lovely meals, for most of the trip, but wanted to spend our last week in or near Cape Town at a quiet place where we could relax and prepare our own meals. I relied on... More

My son, who lives in Hout Bay, booked us into this delightful place, which is a group of four adjoining villas with swimming pool and carp stuffed pond in a beautiful garden. Our villa was immaculately clean and spacious with a large sitting room and 3 double bedrooms. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom was comfortable with masses of storage,... More

We stayed at the Tarragon earlier this month and after having stayed at other places in Hout Bay we will always come back here in future. It is set in a spectacular position looking out across the valley towards the mountains which are lit up by the morning sun. The units are smart and well kept and beautifully furnished, it... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for 4 nights last week, whilst in the Western Cape area doing some wedding planning for next year. The Tarragon was recommended to us by family who had previously stayed here on a couple of occasions - we weren't disappointed! In general terms, it was easy to find, being only 5 mins drive outside... More

We stayed at The Tarragon for six nights at the end of our three-week-journey along the Garden Route. It was a great finish of a wonderful trip - yet, on the other hand it was really sad to leave Hout Bay after such a fabulous time. The Tarragon is beautifully located with a great view, warm hospitality and ... well,... More

The Tarragon exceeded all our expectations. Set in beautiful countryside with magnificent views. Beautifully maintained and run guesthouse. Cottages were spacious, comfortable, immaculately kept and with more than enough room and privacy for our family of 5. We stayed 2 weeks and could easily have stayed 2 months...or 2 years. During our time at The Tarragon we were met with... More

We ended our two weeks in South Africa in Hout Bay by staying at the Tarragon for three nights. We booked "Angelica", a three bedroom house. It is a beautiful, very spacious most comfortable place and we enjoyed staying there with our four children. Mark and his team arranged everything we needed from a baby cod, to a chair, even...
