What a great place, it's private and luxurious but it also feels like home - Lynette is an amazing host. Hout Bay is a really good base for a Cape Town visit, and this guesthouse is a perfect location within it. We'll definitely return!

We spent 5 days in the Woodpecker suite at Nenya guesthouse. It was our first place to stay during our first trip to South Africa. The guesthouse is nicely located in a very calm and green area of Hout Bay with Capetown and Constantia in close reach. We felt like being at home from the very beginning and enjoyed the...

Returned for another visit and Nenya and Lynette still as welcoming as ever. Hout Bay is a great location and Nenya is the perfect place to stay, either to relax and do very little or as a base to visit may of the attractions that are only a short drive away, Chapmans Peak, Llandudno, Camps Bay, Kirstenbosh, Constancia, etc. etc....

This was our second visit to Nenya with Lynette and Coco. This time we stayed for three weeks.Totally relaxing,warm and friendly. Would highly recommend Nenya as one of the best guest houses in South Africa! The weekend evening market at Hout Bay Harbour is well worth a visit!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our inviting location is perfect for a relaxing stay, but within easy reach of Cape Town’s hottest spots, as well as most of the popular tourist venues in the locality. Guests find tranquility and renewal here and feel in touch with nature. We have spectacular 360 degree mountain views with a backdrop of Table Mountain Nature Reserve; wrap around decks, a beautiful scented lavender walk in our Zen inspired garden and we are conveniently situated just 3 km from the still active fishing village of Hout Bay, the gateway to the Cape Peninsula National Park and 20 minutes from Cape Town along a world class ocean drive. Awarded 3 stars by the South African Tourism Grading Council; a 3 star highly recommended by Automobile Association and featured by Lloyds TSB in an article in their Shoreline magazine in July 2008, this is a magical place to be. ... more   less
