Very welcoming hosts, felt like coming home. Lots of information about things to do in the area. Was easy to come and go. Very comfortable beds and plenty of warm bedding. Would definately go back and stay there. We loved it.

Enjoyed our stay. Pool and air conditioning would have been great, as it was extremely hot in Cape Town. Otherwise was good, owners very nice and location very convenient to main attractions. Would stay again.

My overall stay at the lodge was EXCELLENT! The owners are very good people. Tour routes from the lodge are also very good and simple. Over a few sand dunes and you on the sea shore - Excellent. Thanks. Draveena and Rickey.

Thanks. I enjoyed my stay. Neat and professional. Excellent breakfast. I recommend this stay over 100%. The owners contacted me well in advance to confirm and welcomed me personally. Houtbay might be one of my favorite destinations. To stay at Brightwater Lodge compliments the experience.

I really like how this accomodation was based in one large-ish building. several vistors at the same time depending the time of year obviously. I really love the friendly owners and the breakfast was very nice. We staying in the suite and it was very cosy and we had lots of privacy.

Location is average, some things are in walking distance, but at night a car or a taxi is definitely needed. We were given the appartment, which is located on the top floor and very spacious. Facilities are outdated though (old furniture, separate warm/cold tap - very annoying!), there is nothing much to get you started (except for some tea), towels... More

If you like getting out of the hustle and bustle of the Central City this is your place. Hout Bay is a beautiful spot and convenient to downtown Cape Town, as all points south (Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope) as well as the Cape Wine areas. The B&B itself is a lovely house that is nicely appointed.... More

Bright water Lodge is an old-fashioned style of b&b. It's main drawback is that although the house is large there are no outside areas to relax in - no balconies or verandah and although the hosts said we could sit in the (very small) patio area it was obvious later that day that they used the area privately for themselves....

We stayed with our 3 year old in the self-catering apartment. Pleased with the space and the private deck outside. Lovely place, very nice owners and well situated to explore Cape town and surroundings. We would really recommend this place!
