Amblewood was just wonderful , fantastic views and just a five minute walk to town. Trevor and June were wonderful hosts and dropped us at the market and picked us up again. If you stay in Hout Bay then there is no better place to stay, great breakfast too !

Every detail was seen to....from the music playing in the background... More

A wonderful stay in a great room with the most spectacular views. Thank you Joan & Trevor for the lovely breakfast each day. The house is in a nice quiet, safe, off the beaten track spot. Their beautiful Labrador passed away whilst I was there and I know it will leave a huge hole in their and their visitors hearts.... More

Fantastic reception, location and making me feeling welcome followed up by wonderful service and quality accommodation. Trevor and June were great hosts and gave me space but were there when I needed them. It must be one of the most beautiful locations in South Africa

June and Trevor are excellent hosts - warm, friendly and knowledgeable, with lots of good advice on where to eat and visit. The property is in a quiet spot with great views. Our standard room was large and comfortable.

This guest house is beautifully situated. What counts most are that the hosts are very helpful and extremely friendly. A swim in the nice swimming pool and a self help bar next to it lets you close your day in a civilized manner. The well appointed rooms with large beds let you sleep like in heaven. No wonder that we... More

Small Guesthouse in elevated position in a quiet area of Hout Bay. Convenient for local restaurants and the beach. Very friendly and helpful owners who serve an excellent breakfast by the pool. Convenient for visit to Cape Point via impressive Chapmans Peak Drive and still handy for Cape Town by car or local bus.
