Great place in an amazing location

In an amazing location overlooking Hout Bay, this place exceeded our expectations. We had a huge room with large terrace with super comfortable bed. The place is beautifully decorated with lovely gardens. Owners were charming and kind, staff super-nice. Excellent breakfast with a great choice including freshly cooked options. Very good value for money

nothing, we were very happy

Exceeded my expectations
The staff and owners are kind an accommodating and always in hand to give recommendations for the local area. The views from every room are amazing, even better than I expected. The rooms are big and very clean and have plenty of amenities. It’s only a few minutes drive from tonnes of shops and restaurants


Mega view of the mountain in a family environment

We felt incredibly warmly welcomed here, especially in times of Corona chaos. Our flights were postponed three times, the lodge owner supported us with everything and reacted flexibly every day to extensions and our requests. The plant is high on a mountain and is extremely securely secured. Dealing with the children is particularly familiar. They can develop freely throughout the house and have a play area. The area and the breakfast was the best on our 5 weeks trip to Africa. We will be back definitely.

Parking and unpacking are a bit tight

Great accommodation with a fantastic view and breakfast! Any time! My husband, my two girls (2.5) were accommodated in room No. 5. This room is very spacious and has a wonderful view of the sea. The terrace is huge and invites you to linger. The breakfast was extensive and my delicate girls were fed up. Fresh fruits, lots of different bread etc. In addition, you can have your eggs prepared from a huge selection of side dishes. We also received great tips for trips and were well looked after. I can recommend this accommodation 100%. everything was great!



Comfortable and beautiful!
We were greeted and welcomed by very friendly staff. The room was clean and attention to detail was great. Views are breath taking, we loved chilling on the balcony, overlooking entire Hout Bay. Bed was comfortable and warm! Breakfast was delicious- wide variety and accommodating to vegans. All round a great stay!
Nothing. They were very accommodating- made a special vegan breakfast for me.

Great stay in Hout Bay

Enjoyed our stay once again! Great care is taken to make your visit a pleasure. Will certainly be back, not least for the excellent breakfast. Highly recommended. Derek and Lilien are fine hosts. The view is tremendous!

We stayed twice in the Lodge in the last two weeks .Each time was really pleasant. The room that was given to us was big, quiet, safe, clean and tidy. It was at the pool and garden, which was great as the kids could play in the garden while and had some space and privacy. All the staff was friendly and the breakfast was great with a lot of choices.
Last but certainly not last, it had an amazing view!!!
Can't wait to go back

From Trip advisor


Highly recommended, a fantastic stay.
Really lovely hosts with lots of excellent information on the surrounding area, including regular updates on the cricket...! A great location, very close to Constantia, Llandudno Beach, Hout Bay itself and Camps Bay just around the corner. The property was lovely with a fabulous view over Hout Bay, and we felt very safe and secure. Had a car but we used Uber regularly and local coverage was good. Excellent breakfast, both continental and cooked and lots of good coffee on tap, and breakfast outside had the great view too. Lovely staff helped everything there work very well. We really wish we were back there now, and wouldn't hesitate to stay again

As good as any place I have stayed in South Africa: delightful.
Stunning location and the layout of the property made the most of it: describing it as a sea view doesn't do it justice.
Very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast. We'll go again.

A home away from home
A truly amazing Lodge nestled amongst the trees and at the foot of stunning mountain range. It is a piece of heaven. Quiet, serene and safe. Spent 5 days with my family and received excellent service from hosts Lilien and Derek. They always made sure that we were comfy. Made special breakfast arrangement as we are strict vegetarians. Was a relief to see that there was no more shortage of water. It rained tremendously and the levels of the water in the dams is excellent. Fresh, lush and green everywhere! NO MORE DROUGHTS! PAS DE SECHERESSE!!!



A most restful weekend in a tranquil mountain setting with clear views of Hout Bay.
Everything about the grounds and lodge are exquisite. Spotless, welcoming, filled with place to read the beautiful books, in front of the fire, or on a lounge chair on the veranda. Abundant breakfast and perfect bedrooms. Best of all, the owners and staff make you feel welcome and at home. Great suggestions about local eateries and events. Convenient to everything, but out of the way. Will definitely come back, and will bring my family and friends.·
My stay was too short! LOVED THE PLACE


South Africa

Paradise in Hout Bay.
Lilien and Derik receive their guests in an exceptionally friendly way. The house is beautifully decorated and is beautifully situated in a wooded garden. In the morning you can enjoy breakfast on a covered terrace overlooking the bay. I regretted that I no longer booked, because you are really pampered here. It was certainly a great start to my journey. Thank you very much.

Magnificent Wonderful establishment with superb views. We appreciated our private accommodation and also benefit from common areas very pleasant (fire, books, games). Very good breakfast especially since the view is great. Pool and terrace superb even if we have not been able to enjoy it (not the right season)



A fantastic stay to end our trip
This lodge is truly beautiful. The views are stunning and our room and all communal areas were so beautifully done. We enjoyed sitting in the communal lounge playing cards and sipping wine. The cat got lots of our attention too! My children were extremely taken with Pippa the dog and loved the pool. The breakfast was delicious and the service was absolutely fantastic. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Cape Town. Thank you!

The setting, the environment, the reception of the owners, the quality of the breakfast. Everything was impeccable. I just regret being only one night !!
