About Rare Earth
This may be for you if holiday resorts or hotel chains are not your thing. It’s that special place where memorable holidays are made. Holidays that feed the soul. Holidays that leave a lingering feeling for more.From our own travels we’ve realized that finding the perfect accommodation will help you soak up the pleasure of Cape Town that much more.
We have fond memories of the architects pad in Florence, the beach house in Mykonos, the room in Positano with the eccentric host and the boutique hotel in Istanbul. All on the road less travelled. Rare Earth is for the discerning traveler who knows the value of quality, quiet time, slow long days, tasteful living and good times with loved ones.
Rare Earth is a contemporary cottage designed by local architect, Michael Kornmuller who specializes in modern architecture with clean lines and quality finishes. It’s private yet central to the best amenities that the quaint village of Hout Bay has to offer. It’s close to the famous Chapmans Peak drive, the fishing harbour, weekend market, restaurants, sandy beaches and wine estates. If that doesn’t excite you, then tuck into a great book on the deck, look out at the mountain and watch the sun rise and set over the picture perfect Hout Bay.
After sun set, snuggle up in front of the fire on a leather couch. Hout Bay is just 20km out of central Cape Town, Table Mountain and the famous V&A Waterfront. Rare Earth is located in Bokkemanskloof, a security estate in Hout Bay. The owners live on the property and will make you comfortable, help you plan your stay and share Hout Bay’s best kept secrets.
