We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Misti. The management of the guesthouse was very professional and the service was excellent. Should we get the opportunity we will stay over again. We can highly recommend El Misti for any guest that likes a quiet surrounding. We loved the interior decorating of the room also.

I stayed with Hillary and her family for a few days. Very relaxing with excellent breakfast. I even had the honour to borrow their MTB and go riding with her in the beautiful surroundings of houtbay, Tokai and chapmeans peak drive. Also possibility to do your own BBQ so you feel a bit part of the real life instead of eating in a hotel restuarant. Finally also 2 beautiful beaches are at short distance.

From the start we loved our bright and spacious bedroom and large bathroom set apart from the bungelow of the owners on the first floor of a mexican style building. With its private entrance and shaded terrace overlooking the garden and pool this B&B is paradise for travellers wanting to escape Northern winters. Hilary serves a delicious breakfast on the terrace in an always changing style and patiently answers all questions that you might have about excursions, reservations and shopping. The bedroom offers approximately 20 pillows a very comfortable bed, fridge, satelite TV and lots of space for clothing and little things. The walk in shower is real luxury.
If you should feel lonesome one day there are always two very cuddely watch-dogs and
a cat to play with. On the other hand Capetown, Campsbay and Constantia are too close by to ever get bored.
should never get bored.

Ideal location in Hout Bay, perfect area for restaurants and accessing Chapmans Peak and Constantia. Plenty to do. If you are fortunate enough to stay at El Misti you will have a truly wonderful African hospitality experience. Breakfast is a gourmet delight. Hilary and her family welcoming and very helpful, if your not familiar with the the Cape they will help with recommendation that you can trust. The pool in the lovely garden is. an added bonus.

We were few weeks in El Misti. We like the location, the house, the privacy of the pool and garden. We use the location for day trip in the area and it was very convenient. The nice weather allowed us to take full avantage of the pool (cold) and the garden.

The stay was in a very charming family atmosphere. The room apart from the main building gives you a big privacy. Sometimes waking up in the morning the breakfast was on the table in front of my room. Every day the breakfast looked like out of a commercial, but this one you could eat and it tasted very very good.
All the spots in hout bay you can go to are very close. For a trip to cape town or cape point you have to use a car. Certainly chapmans peak drive is a must. You also should do a trip to table mountain, where you can get every day a view from your room to the back side of table mountain. If you want to hike on table mountain and be attended by a guide, adrian would be glad to do an appointment with you. He is a certified mountain guide on table mountain.
I wish you all the best for your stay
