We saved the best until last and spent the last two days of our trip to SA in Amblewood. It is a haven of peace & tranquility, with beautiful bedrooms, a lovely deck and pool, and magnificent views across the bay. Trevor and June were perfect hosts - friendly, attentive and professional. We enjoyed long lingering breakfasts on the verandah...

June and Trevor continue to offer excellent hospitality at their great guest house in Hout Bay. The house enjoys the most stunning views across the bay to the Sentinel and harbour. The view at night is magical. On this occasion we were staying for one night only before returning home to the UK. Nonetheless, we were welcomed as old friends....

We stayed with Trevor and June in their lovely guesthouse for two weeks in November, before moving on to Knysna,and can't stop telling everyone about our fantastic holiday. From the comfort of Amblewood as a base (with its lovely view of the bay and the mountains), we were able to explore the whole of the Cape region around Hout Bay...

My wife and I stayed for 9 days in early September at Trevor and Junes Place in Hout Bay. Amberwood Guest House is a very nice and private B & B, in the hillside overlooking Hout Bay with a fabulous view. But the best about it all were Trevor and June. They were really dedicated and superb hosts, always eager...

Once you find Amblewood (make a point of taking the detailed map from Amblewood's website) you will love the quietness, the view over the bay, the breakfasts (fried eggs just perfect, every time) and the warmth of the welcome by June & Trevor, owners. Our room was quite pleasant although the shower was tricky to use. The bed was very...

This is an amazing little guesthouse to stay at. The view is spectacular and I would suggest choosing one of the upstairs rooms with a private balcony. The owners, Trevor and June, are most welcoming and really helped to make us feel at home. The rooms were cosy and clean and the bath was amazing. Breakfast is a definite plus...

Trevor, June, and Thimba are wonderful hosts. The room and the breakfasts were fantastic. Not a single complaint. Awesome view. Very quiet. Food recommendations were spot on. Hout Bay is a nice area and not too far from the other interesting areas of Cape Town.

Trevor and June were gracious hosts at this lovely guest house. They were very available to make sure we were comfortable and knowledgable about our visit to Hout Bay and the general area. The accomodations were very comfortable and we loved the pool at the end of each day. The view is stunning, the breakfasts divine and this is a...

Trevor and his wife are the perfect hosts. Very laid back and down to earth. We had the family room and it was the most comfortable bed ever! Breakfasts were superb and leisurely and we loved Themba the dog! Trevor kindly arranged a tour for us to the shanty town that was most interesting.
