“Thankyou Carolyn for letting me stay in your great home with lovely views towards the back of Table Mountain and the sunset! A very comfortable family home, I felt safe and the house is well situated to visit so much that Cape Town has to offer. Stunning Kirstenbosch Gardens (get there early in the morning and head straight for the new forest walkway for great birding) just down the road, the Cape point drive along Chapmans Peak should not be missed, Kommetjie with its beautiful beaches and backdrop and so the list goes on but that is CT for you! Even driving into the centre took no time with all the good South African roads. The Waterfront should not be missed for its vibrancy, shops and food (good food is everywhere especially the Brass Bell in Kalk Bay where there was a tightrope walker balancing precariously above the rock pools!) Walking from the house was also a really lovely experience! Carolyn was a delight and we chatting easily......2 Brits together! Thanks again Carolyn and hope our paths cross again! Maria”
Carolyn's reviewsAs a host (4)
“Carolyn's house and garden are lovely! The view from the upstairs balconies and the garden are wonderful and the pool / dining area very relaxing. The house itself is charming and very comfortable. The kitchen well equipped and great to work in. The area is safe and nice walks/runs nearby. Very close to great wineries and restaurants and also try the weekend market in the old fish market in Hout Bay with live music, crafts and food. Carolyn was so helpful and welcoming we'd love to look her up for a glass of wine next time we're in CT! Thanks so much; we really enjoyed our stay.”
“We discovered a wonderful place located in the Beautiful Hout bay area !. We loved very much the Beautiful house with a magical view. We had such a great time in the swimming pool, it was as warm as we like. :) Carolyn was so sweet and helpful ! Thanks so much Carolyn for your kindness ! We definitely recommend this magical place. Hope we will come back soon :)”
“We were a party of 6 adults and we had a wonderful stay at Carolyns house. The location requires a car but has a secure drive way. There are supermarkets close by and some very pleasant restaurant close by. Not far from Hout Bay center and Camps Bay. About 3/4Hr from Central Capetown. The house is well equipped. And the beds very comfortable. The upstairs bedrooms share one communal shower room. Downstairs there is an overbath shower. Due to water saving we did not make use of the bath and only used the washing machine twice during our stay. Carolyn is a perfect host and on hand if you need her. But all the equipment (washing machine etc) have instruction books so there was not a problem. A fantastic BBQ outside and it got a lot of use.”
Where is it?
Our house is in an extremely family friendly estate with stunning views of the mountains. We are 10 minutes from two stunning beaches, 20 minutes from Cape Town city centre and approximately an hour from the winelands.
Hout Bay is a welcoming, vibrant place with friendly people, a Sunday market and wonderful restaurants.
