We were made feel welcome from the moment we arrived for our 3 night stay. Lovely rooms, great hosts, amazing view and wonderful to experience Hout Bay. Really good value for money. We will definitely go back again.

Thanks for taking the time to review our property and glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is a pity that your final mark does not reflect your positive comments ?! Certainly a typo mistake ?
Thanks again and hope to see you soon in Cape Town !

Beautiful Lodge, I would definitely return again. Two suggestions, perhaps make light lunches/dinners available for guests not wanting to go out often, or perhaps snacks/vending machine, cold drinks and bottled water. Secondly air conditioning in rooms, cottage was very hot.

Thanks for your review. Always appreciated. We understand your concern about the heat and agree that it was very hot during your stay but we shall try to improve the comfort of the cottage and place some A/C even if heat wave are not frequent in Hout Bay.
We chose not to compete with the many restaurants and take aways in Hout Bay but we do offer a cheese platter and some cool drinks on request (maybe you did not see the drinks list in your tea tray ?).
Thanks again and hope to see you again (greetings to your parents) !

The Intaba Lodge was an excellent base for exploring the cape. We stayed in the lodge with our two children (8 and 10 years) who loved the location as much as we did. Just walking the garden was an adventure that filled much in their day checking on the chicken and finding all the secret paths. The silence, good beds (also for my 204 cm) and superb breakfast made for 4 great days.

We had a wonderful stay at Intaba Lodge. The owners are very friendly and we appreciated the chats with Pierre. The architecture of the house is beautiful and the exotic furniture is of high-quality and original. The rooms are spacious and clean. The pool area is nice as well, a bit hidden in the big garden, it however benefits from the sun. The breakfast was very good. I definitely recommend this place.

We stayed at Itaba Lodge for three days in the Stone Studio. It is a wonderful property that has an enchanting garden. The pool is set above the main house and has sun for the most of the day. Very recommendable!

We (2 adults and 2 children, aged 3 and 5) stayed at Intaba Lodge for 6 nights in february and enjoyed every second of it !

Intaba Lodge is ideally located in the hills of Hout Bay, very safe and within a short driving distance from the major attractions of Cape Town.
This made it ideal for us, as a family with rather young children, to make fantastic day trips to Cape Town, Constantia, Camps Bay, Cape Point, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek without the need to pack up and move from one B&B to another every time. All the above mentioned trips were less than 1h drives, except Cape Point (1.5h).
Plenty of resto's within a few minutes drive, Dunes is highly recommended for families with kids, as is Rumbullion in Camps Bay.
We stayed at the Rock Studio, very spacious with a small kitchen, and were welcomed by some port wine from Calitzdorp (which was refilled every day ;-)
If we return to Cape Town, we will definitely go back to Intaba.

Pierre & Valerie, thanks for the very warm welcome, the great breakfasts on the sunny veranda in a beautiful setting and the good advice during our stay, our children are still talking about it.
And thanks for the help with our HUGE Hilux 4x4 on your parking, I can imagine there would be a BIG problem if all the guests would show up with that kind of car... :-)

Thanks!

Renaat, Leen, Robin & Thomas

Room Tip: Rock Studio is perfect for 2adults + 2 children

Nice place to stay, well located with fantastic views to wake up to. Accomodation was comfortable and secure (not even the need to lock the doors!). The French owners are charming and can cook a good English breakfast which can be eaten while looking at a perfect view.
Just beware the steep narrow drive up to the lodge!
