We loved the enthusiasm of our hosts, Zack & his mother. The welcome was splendid and one is made to feel at home in the very first instance. The rooms were very comfortable with all the necessary amenities; fridge, tea & coffee making etc. Zack did tell us that in time they were planning to update or redecorate certain of...

This was a revisit to South Africa following my trip a year earlier to watch the cricket Test match. It was because I enjoyed that visit so much that I decided to return and spend more time there. I chose to stay further down the Cape so focused on Hout Bay because of it`s location. Travelling solo is always more...

With the new owners it is even more a very nice place to stay. We first had a room with one double bed, which was too small for us, but they did everything to give us a room with 2 beds. Thumbs up. A very goog location.

... and friendly service, too! Situated right on the beach in Hout Bay, this neat and affordable guest house is in walking distance of most of Hout Bay's attractions and restaurants. Neat and comfy, great breakfast. Plans for a revamp are in place, then it will be superb. Book early to get an upstairs room with superb views!

Overall I would say this establishment was just above average and I would know as I have stayed at my fair share of B&B's in Hout Bay. What made it above average was that the staff were certainly very friendly which does help. We stayed in room 9 which while a very nice room is in need of some maintenace....

We are undergoing an extensive renovation after season where all the issues that you had will be rectified. We are gutting the...

We were very warmly received at the Beach House, and were especially spoiled on account of our honeymoon. The hosts were kind and sociable. The premises and room was secure and comfortable. The deck in front of the room overlooks the beach and Hout Bay harbour, which - at a comfortable walk away - hosts many attractions, including restaurants, markets,...

This is a lovely place to stay at. It is on the beach so it´s really easy to go anywhere in Hout Bay and the view from the terrace is just beautiful! The staff is really looking after you and very considerate. We were three adults staying in two rooms, which were elegant and well kept. We can really recommend...

Right in the beach, beautifully clean rooms, & nothing too much trouble. Great hosts Sylvia, Zac & the Adorable Max the dog! New owners who are in the process of a complete overhaul. Lovely pool with pool towels provided, breakfast table ample & bespoke options for breakfast. Simply a wonderful home from home. Would definitely visit again.
