I felt very comfortable, very welcome. I got a lot of helpful tips for my week in Hout bay/ Cape Town. Very hospitable. While taking breakfast, you get introduced to the others. So, you easily come in contact, if you want. I´ve been travelling alone and got so much support, even a hired car in front of the door that...

Peaceful stay near the sea! Very nice fresh breakfast which makes your day starts perfect. Good point to start or to end your trip to the cape of good hope. Would definitely stay there again when in Hout Bay.

Our experience at Brightwater Lodge was excellent. The hosts were absolutely charming and made us feel at home immediately. They were helpful beyond what one could expect in terms of advice regarding tourist attractions locally as well as further afield . All their facilities were immaculate. We recommend Brightwater for travelers of any age.

The apartment was well furnished and decorated with a well equipped bathroom, some cooking facilities and good wi-fi in the room, in the corner next to the T.V.. Breakfast was cooked to order and freshly...

Rooms and apartment were very clean and nicely furnished, very comfortable and serviced to a high standard everyday. Able to use their bbq pit Erica even provided plates etc...

We stayed here as this was the only place where we could find accommodation as most of the other places were sold out. We paid in full amount without seeing the rooms and agreed to the asking price but I really feel that we were over charged (way cheaper on booking.com and tripadvisor) and cheated. I would not recommend this...

Enjoyed our stay. Pool and air conditioning would have been great, as it was extremely hot in Cape Town. Otherwise was good, owners very nice and location very convenient to main attractions. Would stay again.
