About our home

The town of Hout Bay is a charming village in valley surrounded with mountains and has its own beach. Our Home has hand made quarry tiled floors and white washed walls through out. It has a beach cottage rustic feel about it. Our furniture is very lived in and comfortable and our pool is just the right size for a refreshing dip on a hot summers day. We also have a trampoline and climbing wall in our backyard. The Living area is open plan and the garden is walled. We have a garage for off street parking. We have one cat, who would need to share your holiday with you. He would need to be fed, watered and have his window left open so he can come and go at will. we have one TV and DVD player in the Living Room which doubles as a sound system, we can watch National TV but not satellite. We are looking to house swap in December 2009 and January 2010 in the Phoenix and Now York city areas.

I can see a mountain from every window in my home. My closest neighbour is a landscape architect and his garden is like a mini forest which attracts many birds. We live on a corner so have a private pool and barbecue area. Two of our neighbours have small children so child noise is common and not problematic. Hout Bay beach is a family friendly beach. Hout Bay residents rarely leave the valley as we have everything we need by way of stores, restaurants, and medical practices in the valley. Public transport is not good so we would leave our VW Kombi van for our guests to use.

We are an english speaking South African family with 4 children, 3 of whom are teens. Craig is a pastor and Gaby is involved in the work of the church, church school and wider community. We have travelled extensively without our children for our work but want to give our children an experience of America, as well as visit family in Phoenix and friends in New York. We would want the use of a motor car for the duration of our stay in Phoenix. We are a close family and our teens have been a great joy to us.
