We stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting friends in Hout Bay & it was a perfect spot with stunning views across the valley. Not too close to the hustle & bustle of Hout Bay itself but near enough that it's only a 2 minute drive to the Bay itself & Chapman's Peak. Lynette was a perfect host & we will...

Lynn and Coco - what a team!!! Really enjoyed my stay in my very private and comfortable suite - huge bed and bathroom - altogether a very relaxing experience. The suite overlooked the pool from which a breathtaking view of the mountains can be savoured and appreciated with a glass of red expertly selected by Lynn. Lots of lovely little...

I've traveled all over Europe, South America, the States, the Middle East, and Africa and hands down Nenya is the best accommodation that I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. Impeccably clean rooms, fantastic accoutrements, great views from the deck, and Lyn Hardy (and her dog Cokes I shouldn't forget) are world class hosts. I’m looking forward to staying...

I can't say enough great things about Nenya and Lynnette, the owner. I stayed about a week there while I was looking for an apt. Lynnette is such a fascinating and warm hearted person. She has put her heart and soul into the place. Her cooking is fabulous, its nicely hidden, and you just never want to leave.

Stayed for 5 nights and would highly recommend Nenya to anyone looking for a comfortable home away home type accommodation. Lynette has created a guesthouse that reflects her warm engaging and welcoming personality. The room was well appointed with a spacious bathroom and very comfortable bed. The rest of the guesthouse is bright and airy with fabulous views across the...

We visited Nenya in February 2011 and had such a wonderful stay. The whole house is beautifully decorated and our room was just perfect. We had a room that opened up onto the pool with beautiful views across the valley. The guest lounge was next to our room and was well equipped with an honesty bar, fridge, wine cooler, microwave,...

We spent 4 nights at the Nenya on our arrival in South Africa. Just what we needed - time to relax after our long journey, a warm welcome from Lynette (and Coco, the dog!), beautiful, peaceful surroundings with stunning views over the Table Mountain National Park. Lovely garden and good-sized swimming pool. Just a five-minute drive to Hout Bay. Lynette...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our inviting location is perfect for a relaxing stay, but within easy reach of Cape Town’s hottest spots, as well as most of the popular tourist venues in the locality. Guests find tranquility and renewal here and feel in touch with nature. We have spectacular 360 degree mountain views with a backdrop of Table Mountain Nature Reserve; wrap around decks, a beautiful scented lavender walk in our Zen inspired garden and we are conveniently situated just 3 km from the still active fishing village of Hout Bay, the gateway to the Cape Peninsula National Park and 20 minutes from Cape Town along a world class ocean drive. Awarded 3 stars by the South African Tourism Grading Council; a 3 star highly recommended by Automobile Association and featured by Lloyds TSB in an article in their Shoreline magazine in July 2008, this is a magical place to be. ... more   less
