“Unique touches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

There are different options of rooms according to requirement and budget, but we recently spent a few days in the Fox View cottage and had a wonderful and restful time. Hout Bay is 20 mins from the centre of Cape Town, near enough for easy access to the sites, but remote enough so you feel as if you're in a little town in the countryside.

The cottage is very well put together, comfortable, and gives all the privacy a honeymoon couple might need. The guest house as a whole is designed in an African safari lodge style which gives it its own unique look.

Hosts were always helpful, and the little doggy was a joy.

Intaba lodge is ideally located to visit cape town and its surrounding attractions. We stayed in the 'rock studio' which was very big and had its own fire place which we loved during the evenings. Service is great and we received lots of good tips about what too do and what not too do. Don't forget to book at the Thai restaurant in Hout bay which serves excellent dishes in a very nice old house.

My wife and our little daughter, 1 year old spent 4 weeks in the View cottage, a nice well equipped self catering hut apart from the main building. We had a wonderful stay, the lodge was fantastic and our hosts were always, nice, helpful, yes it was famililike, especially our daughter also loved the place very much. Breakfast at the opern veranda was a must to start the day, and coming to "our" lodge in the evening or after a some day trip was always like coming home :-) Valérie & Pierre-Marie, merci!!!

Intaba Lodge is very well situated on the outskirts of Hout Bay and only a short, easy drive to attractions such as Chapman’s Peak Drive, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Constantia, Camps Bay and, of course, Cape Town itself. We stayed in the Veranda Suite for four nights and found it spacious and well-appointed. The breakfasts were delicious. Valérie and Pierre-Marie made us most welcome and were very helpful in suggesting things to do. We would certainly stay here again.

The first time we came, it was just the two of us and we loved it. We stayed in the Rock studio, which is verry spacious and cosy. The second time we came (which already tells you we enjoyed our stay) with our then 2 year old son - it was just as good. We stayed in the Rock studio again, but this times used the lovely lounge upstairs a lot in the evenings. We returned again in December 2011 and were just as happy with the hospitality and the beautiful environment (you really hear the birds singing and the views of the mountains and the gardens are very pretty). This time we stayed in the tree cottage. The tree cottage is home away! We just loved it. And our - now 3 year old - son told told Valerie and Pierre-Marrie that we will return again soon. Which I'm sure we will!!! We can really, really recommend the Intaba lodge to anybody - with and without children. It is a special place with a very personal touch!!

Staying at the Intaba Lodge was a real pleasure. The combination of a nice location and good rooms / a wonderful garden cottage provide already a good basis for a good holiday. However, what made our stay truly enjoyable was the outstanding hospitality of the owners. They had been wonderfully caring (especially towards our 13 month old sun) and this made our holiday very special. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The garden cottage is a very good choice.
