About Mountain Rise

Mountain Rise is a two-bedroom cottage set on prime real estate overlooking the ocean. The mountains behind the property and a stunning sea view in front make this the most sought-after location in beautiful Hout Bay. Located close to Cape Town Central via the stunning Atlantic Seaboard, Hout Bay is easily accessible via Constantia Nek.

The cottage comprises two bedrooms; a bathroom with a bath and shower; a kitchen with a stove and appliances; a separate dining room; and a large lounge leading onto the main patio.

Hout Bay's glorious beach is set between the towering Sentinal on one side and the world-famous Chapman's Peak on the other. The ocean is framed on both sides by mountains and guests can savour this view from the full-length patio of the cottage. Here is where guests may enjoy early morning breakfasts or early evening sundowners.

We have sliding security gates, burglar proofing and an alarm system. The owners are located in a separate house within the grounds and are therefore available to assist guests with any queries. The cottage has a cleaning service available on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Mountain Rise has been voted Best Establishment in Hout Bay for the last 3 years in a row. If you are looking for self catering accommodation in Hout Bay, you have found the best.

Clean and spacious accommodation with great mountain views, but lacked a hairdryer and cushions for the garden furniture. The patio is large but is generally shaded from the sun due to trees, and is not suitable for small children as there is a large drop. Rick is a pleasant owner but was not able to resolve a number of issues such as the lack of wifi.

We very much enjoyed our three week stay in this nicely appointed and comfortable cottage, with the stunning views of Chapman's Peak and Hout Bay from the terrace. So easy to get down to the waterfront where there are restaurants and shops, and only half an hour's drive into Cape Town itself.

This venue is absolutely fabulous very clean and up market with everything you would have in your own home provided for. It was delightful to come home to after a days sightseeing around the Cape and to sit on the patio having sundowners with a view of Hout Bay in the back ground. The owner Richard Hutton is very freindly and helpful with his local knowledge.

Stayed at Mountain Rise Hout Bay for 10 days just 2 weeks ago. What a treat! Beautifully fitted (luxury kitchen and bathroom, nice dining room, huge TV, super beds), wonderful sea and mountain views (with lovely breeze in the afternoons), secure without being daunting and good for PC/IT users who need to keep in touch with friends or work. Hout Bay without doubt the most delightful place to stay in Cape Town. Even better were our wonderful hosts and family who made us so welcome. Could not fault a single thing. Very highly and genuinely recommended.

Mountain Rise is a well furnished unit in a quiet part of Hout Bay. Will recommmend it and will make use of it again.
