Nestling some 10 mins from the beach, Hout Bay View is ideally situated to take full advantage of all points of interest both locally and throughout the Cape Peninsula, providing ample opportunities for the most adventurous and a host of gentle pastimes for the weary traveller.

A 20 min drive will place you in the heart of Cape Town where its varied collection of world renowned restaurants and bars await your pleasure. More adventurous guests can seek out the numerous mountain trails and walks taking in the breathtaking scenery Hout Bay is so famous for. Take a kayak out into the harbour and take in the view of our beautiful mountain ranges. Deep sea fishing and jetskis are also available. Take time out to pamper yourselves at many day spas or loose yourself staring out to sea whilst slowly reading the day away at any of our beautiful local beaches. A 20 min drive in the other direction will take you to Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens, a must do if you have green fingers.

A drive around Chapmans Peak is not for the faint hearted but well worth the trip and who knows, you may even see the Southern Right Whales that holiday in Hout Bay every year! Further a field the penguin colony at Boulders beach and the Ostrich farms are well worth a visit and of course the jewel in the crown, the Garden Route for the most spectacular wine fest anywhere in the world.

Craft markets abound, showcasing the very best skills and talents of our locals so you can see that you might have to book again with us next year because you might not see it all this time!
