Sue and Martin are special hosts in this piece of paradise. My husband and I always feel like the Hideaway is our home away from home when we visit the Cape Town area. Everything is lovely, convenient and comfortable, and we never want to leave. Breakfast is wonderful, too!

Hi, Thank you for your enquiry, The Hideaway is very near the center of Hout Bay, it is a walk of just over 5 minutes to the beach and restaurants, it may take a couple of minutes more to walk back as we are on a hill ! A car is useful for visiting some of the major attractions of Cape Town and the Peninsular but not necessary. I hope this answers your questions, Kind regards, Sue, The Hout Bay Hideaway.

"All three rooms looked lovely and have a different view. The sun floods in the windows."
"The Bay View room is our favorite."
"We stayed in the Skylight Suite, but all the rooms are beautiful!"
"Upstairs suites might have better view unless you prefer a quiet garden view."
"Although the garden room didn't have a sea view, I think the sheltered position and view over the garden was even nicer."
