We wouldn't have booked again if we had any doubts that this would be a 5 star stay. We weren't disappointed. Sue and Martin are wonderful hosts and the accommodation is superb. Who would stay in a 5 star hotel when you could stay here? Can't add anything to the loads of positive reviews. Try it. You won't regret it.

Many thanks to Martin and Sue... A lovely couple who obviously know what they are doing. This is both a beautiful and a peaceful B&B and is a credit to them. Fabulous rooms, terrific breakfast, nice folk... Thoroughly recommended... If you are going please take along some Henderson's Relish, if you can get it... A Northern sauce that this Yorkshire couple miss! Thank you both again and all the best. Geoff & Maggie

Room Tip: Preferred Sunlight room but all rooms lovely

Thanks Geoff and Maggie for the lovely review and also the plug for Hendersons relish. We should have been at the Sheffield Arena when the Arctic Monkeys were playing, they were selling special bottles of the beautiful relish!!!

We spent a week at the Hout Bay Hideaway and it was fantastic. The spacious Bay View room with it's sunny balcony overlooking the bay was the perfect place to start the day with a long and delicious breakfast, and to enjoy the evenings and the sunset with a glass of wine. Sue and Martin are wonderful hosts. Thank you so much for making our stay as enjoyable and relaxing. We can't wait to come back.

Don't look at any other property in Cape Town! We lived in South Africa for 3 years and visited Cape Town as often as possible. We stayed with Sue and Martin on every visit. We spent our last visit to Cape Town in May 2013 at the Hout Bay Hideaway and it really is our best memory of Cape Town, if not of South Africa.
The rooms are spectacular. We have stayed in them all. I love the Bay View and my wife loves the Skylight room. The family apartment downstairs is perfect for families and long stays.
The breakfast is over the top!!! Sue makes the best croissants that I have ever had. Sue and Martin are the perfect hosts and will certainly ensure that you have the time of your life!
Hout Bay is a short drive to any of the main tourist destinations in the city and surrounding areas. The drive through Constantia is breath taking, as is the drive around Chapman's Peak. It's also the perfect spot to cozy-up next to the fire and enjoy a bottle of Steenberg sparkling wine. Do yourself a favour and book at the Hout Bay Hideaway!

We stayed for five nights at the Hideaway at the start of our holiday touring South Africa. Our hosts, Sue & Martin made us most welcome and we enjoyed a relaxing time in this superb guest house. The quality of the accommodation and attention to detail was just first class. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts in a most convivial setting. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts whose expert knowledge of the region and guidance helped us with our travel plans. It is a perfect location for exploring the Cape Town area with several good restaurants close by. We would certainly recommend this well run guest house to the discerning tourist who is seeking a warm welcome in comfortable surroundings and in the most attractive setting of Hout Bay.

Thank you for a great review, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Hideaway. We also enjoyed receiving your 'regular' updates from the rest of your trip on the Garden Route and will definitely pass on to other guests your recommendations.
