This is a really good place; big well equipped rooms, lovely garden and pool and nice views. The owner is absolutely wonderful and couldn't be more helpful. The location is a few minutes drive from Hout Bay. Very much recommended.

Beautiful location on slope of Little Lions Head, great views over Hout Bay and the mountains, tranquil garden with swimming pool. Very friendly, accommodating and helpful hosts Diane and Etienne. Spacious self contained apartments, tastefully furnished. Quiet, safe and secure. This was already our second visit.

I would describe Shambala as a little bit of paradise - with extremely kind and helpful hosts. The whole experience was perfect, the apartment, the garden, the pool, the service,... More
