This is a gorgeous residence with a superb breakfast and kind, informative hosts. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. We enjoyed getting take-out sushi from the tiny Japanese restaurant in Hout Bay, sitting on the lawn chairs outside our room, and watching the sun go down. The security system is electronic and allows for the open views, but it takes some... More

We spent three nights here and were very happy with everything. It is a little out of the way up a steep road, but it makes for a quiet, private retreat and the views at the top are breathtaking! Lovely atmosphere in the mornings dining poolside - you feel like part of the family. Excellent security and the rooms are... More

Excellent mountainous sightseeing, halfway from Houtbay and Llandudno beach. Guesthouse and rooms were exquisitely clean. First class (french style) breakfast. Patrice, the owner, is a great host. I didn´t rent a car, which limited my goings around. Nazeem, the taxi driver Patrice recommended, was a good substitute, though.

We liked a lot breakfast with fresh fruits, croissants and home made jams. What we really liked most, was our hosts, Catrine and Patrice. Staying first in Cape town, we got really fantastic tips,...

What else can I add that has not already been said about the incredible Villa Montebello. As former owners of a guest house too, we not only had high expectations, but we new what to expect from another perspective. However, the overall experience at Villa Montebello surpassed out greatest expectations. We stayed at the luxurious, Rhodes suite, with views as... More

We loved our stay at Villa Montebello. Patrice and Catherine went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel at home, including baking a cake for my daughter's 8th birthday the day after we arrived. The room was spacious and spotless. The breakfasts were AMAZING. Simple food but SO FRESH! I have traveled a lot with my... More

Read the positive reviews and believe them all. The Villa Montebello is a wonderful oasis of peace and calm offering great accomodation, superb views and lovely attentive hosts in this delightful guest house. There's so much to see and do in the Hout Bay area but most days we just enjoyed the great breakfast and lazed in the tranquil surroundings... More
