This was the highlight of our stay in South Africa. Next time we will stay a week.
The accommodation was lovely. Amazing views. The rooms were incredible with lovely linen. What ever you could want in a self catering unit they have, even a picnic basket.
Ice brick in freezer. Two BBQ if wind blows one in front and one at back door.
The grounds are incredible there is not a blade of grass out of place. Very quiet and peaceful.

Room Tip: It is all lovely

Houtkapperspoort is a delightful quiet place up the mountains between Constantia Nek and Hout Bay, surrounded by beautiful trees on the side slopes of Table Mountain. Breathing in fresh air from the trees all day and night is a real treat away from pollution. Close proximity to all major areas in Cape Town is a big plus point. The rooms seem to all be facing slightly privately way from each other, which is great. The grounds, with flowering hydrangeas bushes, are very well kept, whilst springboks and squirrels roam and scamper on the well manicured lawns. Room service is excellent. What was interesting is that we had a four bed roomed cottage and one bathroom with loo whilst my brother had a one bed roomed cottage with two bathrooms and two loos! Also that garden cushions could be supplied, for the outdoor wooden chairs and with an outdoor table cloth for the cement table. Of course this should be under strict condition that they are brought inside when not used or CT has inclement weather. However, we would happily stay there again and already look forward to our next time in Cape Town. "

Wonderful place to stay for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding country side. These are self catering lodges set in beautifully maintained gardens just outside Houts Bay and near Constansia Nek. We enjoyed the peaceful tranquility of this place after the hurly-burly of our daily explorations. Close to many tourist attraction i.e. Kirstanbosch, Table Mountain, False Bay, Cape point, Stellenbosch, Franshhoek and many more.

Good accommodation for the price, although as each cottage is individually owned you must do a bit of research to pick the interior that best suits your taste.

Love the springbok and the ease of travel between Hout Bay and Constantia. Either beautiful views back over Hout Bay- although the sea can't be seen.

We have stayed here on many occasions in the past and been really happy, but this time we stayed in cottage #2 which was poorly maintained - badly furnished and a little dirty. The fridge was not turned up and was very smelly inside. The gardens and still great with stunning views of the mountains but I will definitely make sure I do not stay in cottage #2 again.

Room Tip: Stay away from #2 until its been upgraded and cleaned
