Our second time in Thyme. Love the new editions around the pool (Happy Birthday Mark). This place just completely relaxes our family. This time we spent Xmas here and the kids loved it. It still pains me to review it as I want to keep this place a secret. Pencil us in for Xmas 2018 guys!

We stayed with our family for a week in Thyme then had a two week break in Jasmine when the kids went back we've stayed several times hence the reason to keep this a secret or else you'll all want to go 😜 Mark is not only helpful but goes out of his way to make you feel totally at...

We chose the Tarragon as our location for our honeymoon over this Christmas/New Year - I was delighted with our experience. I can only describe the location as idyllic! The large gardens and swimming pool come with the stunning scenery of the neighbouring mountains. It is a peaceful retreat. You are also very conveniently close to Hout Bay beach and...

This was our second time visiting the Tarragon, again in Angelica cottage. It's a remarkably relaxing place set in the hills overlooking Hout Bay. As others have said the location is great for exploring some local attractions, but the property itself is a lovely place to spend time. Our cottage was large, airy and well equipped and the kids loved...

We stayed for 3 weeks at the Ivy Cottage with our kids, it was again an amazing holiday with stunning views from our terrace. The Tarragon offers everything you need, it’s the place to be if you like just that more luxury-feeling. Ivy cottage offers you 2 big bedrooms and also 2 modern bathrooms, a cozy living room and kitchen....

Everything about Tarragon is excellent: the owners Mark & Julia could not be more helpful, any problem is sorted out immediately(sorry about...

Our stay between 2016-11-3 and 2016-11-10 was wonderful. A great appartment with a fireplace, a big terrace, a very nice pool and also a playground for our little son (6 years old). The landlords were very helpful and helped us to find the best places in Hout Bay. We hope we can come back soon.

We have stayed at The Tarragon before, and will always keep returning. We stayed in Angelica cottage. Such a great place to stay with the family, the cottage was so well equipped with everything we needed, really beautiful forest like gardens with a fabulous hidden jungle gym, really child friendly and lovely staff. I would highly recommend staying here.

Just spent a fab week at The Tarragon. Our 4th visit and it never disappoints. Location is perfect, as a family we find Hout Bay the ideal spot. We always meet returning guests, if you stay once you wont stay anywhere else in Cape Town. This year on departing we headed to a luxury lodge down the coast, at four...
