We stayed at Itaba Lodge for three days in the Stone Studio. It is a wonderful property that has an enchanting garden. The pool is set above the main house and has sun for the most of the day. Very recommendable!

We (2 adults and 2 children, aged 3 and 5) stayed at Intaba Lodge for 6 nights in february and enjoyed every second of it !

Intaba Lodge is ideally located in the hills of Hout Bay, very safe and within a short driving distance from the major attractions of Cape Town.
This made it ideal for us, as a family with rather young children, to make fantastic day trips to Cape Town, Constantia, Camps Bay, Cape Point, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek without the need to pack up and move from one B&B to another every time. All the above mentioned trips were less than 1h drives, except Cape Point (1.5h).
Plenty of resto's within a few minutes drive, Dunes is highly recommended for families with kids, as is Rumbullion in Camps Bay.
We stayed at the Rock Studio, very spacious with a small kitchen, and were welcomed by some port wine from Calitzdorp (which was refilled every day ;-)
If we return to Cape Town, we will definitely go back to Intaba.

Pierre & Valerie, thanks for the very warm welcome, the great breakfasts on the sunny veranda in a beautiful setting and the good advice during our stay, our children are still talking about it.
And thanks for the help with our HUGE Hilux 4x4 on your parking, I can imagine there would be a BIG problem if all the guests would show up with that kind of car... :-)

Thanks!

Renaat, Leen, Robin & Thomas

Room Tip: Rock Studio is perfect for 2adults + 2 children

Nice place to stay, well located with fantastic views to wake up to. Accomodation was comfortable and secure (not even the need to lock the doors!). The French owners are charming and can cook a good English breakfast which can be eaten while looking at a perfect view.
Just beware the steep narrow drive up to the lodge!

My wife and I stayed in Tree Cottage and found it very private and with ample accommodation.
The setting in Hout Bay is excellent with the harbour, shops and restaurants being a few minutes drive away.The view from the cottage is impressive.
We suggest that blinds in the lounge area would be an improvement.

We wanted to start our annual holiday in Hout Bay for a change. Somewhere to have a few days to acclimatise before moving on. This place is great, the French owners are very helpful and the position is wonderful.

We spent three days at intaba lodge with my girlfriend and our 6 months bab, and we have been delighted.
The service is excellent, the hosts are welcoming, warm and very helpful. The house has a true cachet, and it is perfectly located with an amazing view.
I clearly recommend intaba lodge

My husband and I visited this lovely guesthouse last month. We had a wonderful few days here; having breakfast on the terrace whilst taking in the fabulous view was a real treat. Hout Bay is a great location for visiting Cape Town as it is easy to get into the city but it is also well located for trips to attractions in the wider Cape Town area. Our hosts Valerie and Pierre could not have been more helpful and it was a pleasure to relax in their beautiful garden. We hope to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rock Studio which is huge and has the advantage of a kitchen area
