Peaceful and well situated - Hout Bay is a peaceful resort catering for all needs. It is ideally placed as a base for day trips to many places. Cape Town is only a 30 minute car drive away.

Charming and picturesque town - Beautiful scenery, perfect location for a holiday with beaches, mountains, but with all amenities such as stores, restaurants, banks etc.

Serene - Hout Bay is a very beautiful and relaxing town. The wharf is a legend and we discovered the craft market at the harbour. A very vibey place to hang out on a Friday night. I enjoyed that immensely.The view of Hout Bay from Chapman's Peak on a beautiful summers day is too glorious to describe, you just have to go and experience it for yourselves.

Hout Bay - Beautiful, quiet, relaxing, yet also vibey and interesting, not too far from other towns and places of interest and the the view of the bay from Chapmans peak is indescribable.

Seaside village of Hout Bay - Nestling amidst majestic mountains and close to some of the best bathing beaches in the world, the seaside suburb of Hout Bay is a modern fishing village just 20 min from Cape Town CBD and the V&A Waterfront. Considered an exclusive holiday destination, Hout Bay offers a variety of shops, restaurants, galleries and places of interest. Picturesque mountain walks and hikes, the working harbour, boat trips, the Sunday flea market on the village green and weekend Craft Markets at the water's edge attract both local and internationals. The World of Birds, one of the largest bird parks in Africa housing over 3000 birds and small mammals, sees thousands of visitors a year. Scenic world-renowned Chapman’s Peak Drive connects Hout Bay to Kommetjie, Noordhoek, Simonstown, Cape Point and Boulders Beach's penguins.
