We stayed at Houtkapperspoort in March 2016. We were a group of 22 and had 11 of the houses there. We all had a great time. Our houses were cleaned daily and the staff were very helpful and considerate to our needs. Great amenities such as A/C, wifi in some of the houses (confirm before booking) fully equipped kitchen and...

I was with extended family members. Those that were in our group at one cabin every evening (when we didn't eat out) & were able to cook the meals/food in our own cabin(s). Our Unit was clean; a little dark inside. Needs more light.); spacious enough. There were numerous bugs/mosquitoes at nite. After traveling in SA for 4 weeks we...

Wonderful place to spend a vacation. Secluded, quiet, self-catering homes allowed for a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. There were 25 of us. We were in different cottages. Each cottage is different (owned by different people). Ours (#8) could use some work, but it was pleasant. Security was good. Amazing views of the mountains with Springbok roaming the grounds everywhere....

Stayed there for two weeks over Christmas, and absolutely perfect for our needs. It's close enough to Lundudno, Hout Bay and Constantia so that you can do whatever you feel like doing on a day without having to plan much in advance. Equally, it's great spending the day at Hourkapperspoort, with it's beautiful and extensive gardens, it's swimming pool, tennis...

We really enjoyed our stay at Houtkapperspoort. Our self-catering chalet (no 19) was well equipped and had a nice view. We loved the swimming pool. Very friendly staff. They allowed us to stay a bit longer so that our little daugher could do her nap in her bed instead of the car before our flight home.

Stayed there with the family over December. Great location - out of the mainstream Cape Town holiday traffic. Spacious, comfortable chalets with everything you need. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool and roaming the grounds. The units could do with a bit of refresh however as some of the appointments and equipment could do with replacing, but did not impact our...

I stayed there for a week and found it perfect for what i was looking for. Self catering cottages with a location which is hard to beat. The cottages are immaculate and are extremely comfortable. The security is very good and you have your own car parking space and area of garden. It's a 5 minute drive to the picturesque...

Peaceful, private bungalows in a beautiful setting. Adequately equipped and comfortable. Pleasant staff and a secure location. When we stayed the temperatures were unseasonably cool and the place had no heating other than an open fire in the lounge. Firewood was not provided or available to purchase on site. Luckily the shops were still open so we could buy some....
