About the neighborhood
Situated in the beautiful seaside village of Hout Bay, close to Cape Town, with the glamour of the Waterfront, the spectacular Table Mountain, the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, and our own World of Birds.

The beach is beautiful for romantic strolls, beach sports, or just lazing in the sun. World-class restaurants for all tastes, mountain hikes for the energetic. We overlook the bay and Chapmans Peak, the spectacular drive likened to the calanques of Monte Carlo.

We are at the start the beautiful drive to the Cape of Good Hope, and just 40 minutes from the Winelands of Stellenbosch, Paarl and the picturesque village Franschoek, the French corner.
Getting around
Recommended to have car rental or travel by Uber which is very easy to use. The owners frequently use Uber themselves.
Chateau Neuf du Cap is quite accessible. We are walking distance to one of the stops of the very popular and enjoyable 'Hop-on, Hop-off City Sightseeing Cape Town Red Bus'. Once on board - it takes you on a beautiful scenic tour all along the coastal road to Cape Town - and back via botanical gardens and winelands.
We are only a 20-minute drive to the centre of Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Waterfront. We are 30 minutes drive from the airport.
