Guest Reviews

Diana was a very friendly and helpful host. She helped us with all our questions and concerns. Our expectations of the accommodation were exceeded and the view of Hout Bay was simply breathtaking. We can highly recommend this accommodation to everyone!

This AirBnB is everything you could want if you are looking for a beautiful and safe place to stay in Hout Bay. The pictures don’t give the view or the deck justice. You wake up to an amazing view of Hout Bay from the bedroom and the deck is perfect for relaxing! My partner and I were there to work during the day and enjoy Hout Bay during the mornings/evenings. The location is perfect for a quick drive to anything you might want/need. The beach and several restaurants are just down the hill. If you like hiking, there is a quick trail up the road that will take you to a tranquil little waterfall. It’s perfect for a quick morning hike. Other things to note: – bed, bathroom, and kitchen are very open and comfortable – plenty of space to cook, if you desire – very large fridge and living area Diana was very accommodating and went out of her way to help us with any issues we had during our stay. Thanks again!


This is the best view in Hout Bay and if you desire peace, tranquility and hospitality Diana and Don offer all of this. The apartment is sparkling clean and well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The beds in particular are large and very comfortable and I had the best night sleep here in South Africa, waking up to the birds singing. Diana place is a unique stay in paradise!

Saunter down the hill to enjoy jazz evenings at The Hout Bay Manor, or the delight of freshly ground coffee at a wobbly rustic table at a roasterie on the Baviaanskloof stream, or be tempted to try a delicious bagel under the milkwoods at the old post office, meet the locals at Darios or enjoy greasy calamari at Chappies overlooking the beach. Or hop in an Uber and venture a little further to hillside wine estates and world class restaurants in the surrounding areas.

Constantia wine route, world’s top restaurants including La Colombe, Foxcroft, Chef’s Warehouse and Bistro 1682.

Bars & Lounges

Local pubs include Woodcutters Arms, Deus and Casareccio

Arts & Culture

The Norval Foundation is a short drive away with exhibitions of Africa art and a great restaurant.

The Zeitz Mocaa at the V&A Waterfront is another place to view African art, housed in an old granary it is one of the most talked about architecture adaptations on the Continent.
A personal favourite is the Irma Stern Museum in Rosebank.

Shows & Entertainment

Enjoy musical evenings under stars at the Kirstenbosch Botanical or revel in the bio-diversity of the Cape’s flora under the awe-inspiring crags of Table Mountain.

Numerous stunning mountain hikes and the beach are all within a few minutes walk from the cottage. Horse riding, seal diving and side-car excursions are all available in the area.

Hop-on-hop-off bus from Mariner’s Wharf takes you on a fun circuit of the Peninsula or the MyCiti bus service from the village is a slow, but convenient way to get to Cape Town city centre or the V and A Waterfront.
