Suburb of Cape Town
Hout Bay is the nicest place to stay in the whole of Cape Town. Because its by the sea it has wonderful views, a cooling breeze most days and spectacular views over the deep turquoise bay and mountains behind. It also has lots of variety - a good range of shops with a nice sized (ie not enormous) mall, a pleasant main road with more shops, arts and crafts places and a lovely harbour where you can see seals.
