A fantastic guest house nestled in the mountains above Hout Bay and Constantia. The views are spectacular and the owners absolutely lovely. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Villa Montebello. Thank you!

We spent a weekend at the end of September with Patrice, Catherine and the infamous Lord Tamam (The Cat) and it was really a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing few days. The villa is against the mountain on the west side of Hout Bay with picturesque views down onto the town and countryside below. With safe parking, and convenient and... More

Stayed here with my husband for a week. From the moment we arrived our hosts Patrice and Catherine went the extra mile to ensure our stay was amazing. The guesthouse is in Hout Bay 10 minutes drive from Cape Town. The position is fabulous being high up overlooking the bay and the mountains. The gardens and pool area are immaculate... More

Very good service and breakfast with an excellent view to the valley and the ocean. Clean and very spacious rooms, we really enjoyed our stay of 6 nights. Nice and safe area and very welcoming hosts. Really a place to return to!

We arrived in Hout Bay under some cold and inlement weather (as we we were expecting some sunshine in late Sept). But when we reached Patrice's establishment on the west hill of Hout Bay, we found enough sunshine and hospitality to make it worthwhile. Our suite was huge and the views spectacular. Bedding prestine and enough cupboard space for any... More

We spent 3 weeks in South Africa and we tried to select the best guesthouses. Villa Montebello was excellent and was the best for the environment and location, the best for room’s quality, the best for the breakfasts and the best for welcoming us. You arrived and you are welcome with a complimentary drink with biscuits. That was the 1st... More

We had the pleasure of a 3 night stay in the Rhodes Suite (Villa Montebello) in April 2014. The B&B is within easy driving distance to Cape Town and areas south e.g. Cape Point. A car is necessary. The room was beautiful and large with great views over Hout Bay. Our hosts, Patrice and Catherine, were very hospitable and helpful... More

Coming into Cape Town from the garden route, one amazing view after the other brought us to Villa Montebello. Upon parking our car, Patrice and Catherine were already there for a warm welcome and to give us a hand with our luggage. Patrice showed us to our room which was very comfortable and very clean. Large room on the ground... More

Spent a superb couple of nights at Villa Montebello. Delightful, charming and welcoming hosts, Patrice and Catherine made our visit really special. Sensational views from a pretty and shaded garden. Extremely comfortable and well appointed rooms and fantastic breakfasts with wonderful home made jams and preserves courtesy of Patrice's experimentation and creativity. Delicious !
