“what a view, what a property”
Reviewed February 9, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

small but perfectly formed this property has everything. perched on the hillside above the bay in Fishhoek the view from the deck is stunning and very entertaining as you watch the fishermen hauling in their nets and the lifeguards deploying the shark nets every morning. Well equipped in every way to a high standard , it is spotlessly clean and very comfortably furnished. Barbara is a helpful host who is happy to go the extra mile to ensure a memorable stay. Its a steep climb up the steps from the road but thats the price for the stunning view. Overall its incredible value for money for a property that is a little bit different different in all the right ways. Its a short walk into town for restaurants and shops and for the longer trips uber is a great way to get around here without the hassle of renting a car.

“A Nook at the tip of Africa”

A beautifully appointed little apartment overlooking an unspoiled beach on False Bay, the Nook is great value. Due south of Cape Town beyond Table Mountain, Fish Hoek is less elegant than neighbouring Halk Bay but is safe and welcoming. We walked the 30 mins twice for a great meal in Harbour House restaurant in Halk Bay. A 90 minute walk south takes you to historic Simons Town. There is cheap public transport and Uber's are great value. You need to be reasonably fit to get your cases up fifty steps and the residential hillside is separated from the beach by the coast road and the metro railway line but it wasn't a major problem. The owner, Barbara is welcoming and friendly.

A wonderful friendly welcome from our hosts as well as cakes, chocolates and a bottle of wine. Perfectly formed accommodation for a couple wanting a relaxing couple of weeks in the sun. Beautiful position with great views across to the bay of Fish Hoek from the deck where we enjoyed our breakfasts​, dinner and lots of South African wine!

This small stylishly newly renovated detached apartment fitted our needs perfectly. Beautifully furnished and had everything we needed, comes highly recommended. Upon arrival we were met with beautiful personal touches (such as freshly baked cookies, fresh milk and a bottle of local wine and a smile).

Thanks for a beautiful stay. We would recommend the nook to any couple looking to stay out of cape town for a relax.

This comfortable well-equipped apartment, which has been tastefully decorated offers wonderful views of Fish Hoek. The deck is a perfect place to relax. Conveniently situated, within walking distance of the Fish Hoek town centre. Our hosts were wonderful, thank you.

“Stunning views, a stylish holiday home, great value and a very warm welcome”
Reviewed January 13, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We booked the Nook for the Christmas period and enjoyed it so much that we rebooked in January for the final weekend of our South African holiday. Both times the Nook more than lived up to our expectations. The views from its deck of Fish Hoek, False Bay, and the surrounding mountains are fantastic. The accomodation is comfortable, stylish, cosy and spotless. The owners are incredibly kind, very well organised and informative, and did everything possible to ensure our stay was truly memorable. Although it was hard to tear ourselves away from the deck, the Nook is a short, safe walk to the beach, shops and restaurants in Fish Hoek.
