My husband and I chose The Tarragon as a base from which to explore and enjoy the Cape Peninsula and catch the last of the (South African) Summer. Neither the accommodation nor the weather disappointed! The Tarragon is set at the foot of TableMountain with spectacular views across the Hout Bay valley. The grounds are immaculately maintained and provide genuine... More

It may have been wet and cold and windy when we arrived, but by jingo, that didnt prevent the staff from greeting us with a very warm and incredibly helpful welcome, impressed from the very start. The cottage was simply excellent, well designed, well furnished, well equipped, could not ask for anything more, we were spoilt to be frank. We... More

My wife and I spend a week at this place and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The accommodation, the views, the pool and not to forget the Staff. It was perfect. The only point for improvement can be the quality of the wifi.

We are regular visitors in Hout Bay and thought, that we have seen and stayed in all top notch accommodations out there. However, we have to revise our statement and must put The Tarragon by miles on top of our list. Immaculate interior, spacious rooms and despite it was winter the house was warm and nice to stay in even... More

I spent a few night at The Tarragon towards the end of the Easter holidays, staying with my wife and two children. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and loved having both a community on our doorstep (Hout Bay), as well as easy access to both Central Cape Town and Cape Point peninsula. We found that The Tarragon offered extremely... More

Everyone loves Cape Town and loves it even more when your accommodation is like the Tarragon in Hout Bay. When arriving at The Tarragon you feel like your Holiday really starts. A beautiful location, stunning views and a apartment that has luxury and coziness at the same time. The master bed and bathroom were the best we have had during... More

We have recently spent a great, two week, family holiday at the Tarragon. We were 10 adults and 6 children. We wanted somewhere where we could all be together and self-cater, but where each individual family could have their own space. We know Cape Town well and we'd extensively looked into the various options for this kind of holiday and... More

The Tarragon is the perfect place if you plan a holiday with family where you want to balance privacy and a location in the middle of what the Cape Town area has to offer. We picked the Angelica and it was the best choice: the house offered three bedrooms, a large family room, dining areas and a terrace with a... More

We are local to Hout Bay but travel throughout the Western Cape frequently. What a wonderful surprise to arrive at The Tarragon late on Friday night. Mark had gone out of his way to leave the keys for the cottage for us (after hours) and turn the lights and heaters on! There was even a fresh litre of milk in... More
