Martin and Susan were wonderful hosts. As we were leaving very early in the mornings for fishing trips, they kindly accommodated us by ensuring there was breakfast for us the night before. We were given keys and gate remotes and felt free to come and go as we pleased. Many thanks for a lovely time. P.S. Zak did manage to spear a 72kg yellow fin tuna on the last day in 14 degree waters.

We had a wonderful time at the Hideaway. The gardens surrounding the house were peaceful and relaxing and just what we were looking forward too, and breakfast on the terrace was the highlight of the morning.

I had the pleasure of staying at Hout Bay Hideaway for a few rainy days in August. Not only was the house all the web description claimed but Martin and Sue were wonderful hosts - breakfast and the morning papers delivered to my door every morning: a hot water bottle in bed at night. I will definitely go back and have recommended to my friends.
