Our household currently includes 1 dog (loving, exuberant golden retriever), 3 cats, 4 rabbits, and 5 tadpoles (caught by our children during a recent walk up a stream from the top of the neighbouring estate to a waterfall and tadpole pool.) Hout Bay is surrounded by ocean and mountains, with lovely walks and views. Near the start of the dramatic Chapman’s Peak Drive is East Fort, which includes (they claim) the worlds oldest cannons still to be fired occasionally. As well as the formal shopping centre, Hout Bay offers two great markets – the open air Sunday market 3 minutes walk from the flat, and the weekend Harbour market with a range of crafts and foods for everyone’s taste. Hout Bay Harbour also offers fishing trips and trips to seal island. We are also just 100 meters from a MyCiti bus stop, with regular buses going direct to Cape Town and to the V&A Waterfront. This system also connects to Cape Town International Airport. The Red open-topped 'Hop On-Hop Off' buses come through Hout Bay on their circular route via V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay, Clifton Beach, the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Hout Bay Harbour, 'World of Birds”, and Constantia Nek, with the Acrobranch tree-top zip-lining adventure centre. A wine tour option is also offered. All these places are between 5 and 30 minutes drive from the flat. More
