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

We loved the location high on the hillside looking down at the valley. We had a really spacious, very well specified high quality two bed two shower room apartment with lovely terrace and very private. The grounds were extensive and both the adults and our two kids aged 14 and 10 loved their time in the big pool. Mark the... More

We stayed in "Angelika", the largest house, with 3 adults and four kids and it was plainly terrific. Plenty of space, heartily welcome by Mark, just around the corner from Cape Town, nice pool, car required, plenty to see and explore in the area!

The cottage provided ample of space, was clean and homely. The grounds were beautiful and Mark and his wonderful... More

This was our first long haul trip with our 3 and 1 yr old. After a sleep deprived overnight flight I almost cried when we arrived at The Tarragon and our accommodation Angelica. Huge lounge, straight onto veranda, amazing valley views, lush garden, koi ponds and serene pool. Kids have DVDs, Lego, toys, buckets and spades as well as the... More

Fast becoming my home from home. The Tarragon is unquestionably the most tranquil place to stay in Hout Bay away from the busy roads and noise of other areas. The views down the valley are fantastic and the gardens, pool and overall design just create a relaxing atmosphere. The owners could not be more helpful and flexible and go above... More
