6,7 Good
Pros: Cecilia and Matty
Cons: The wasp nest by the door of the loft and the cleanliness of the pool wasnt up to our expectations. The location wasnt good for us - this has nothing to do with the property management. We didnt like having to take the car everytime we wanted to go out for a drink or needed to buy something. We felt sorry for the lonely emu in the garden.

7,5 Good
Pros: The position is excellent
6,3 Good
Pros: Breakfast was good
Cons: Room smelt of smoke and was not what was advertised on the site - pictures showed upstairs balcony with views of the beach and this is why I booked it. False advertising. Our room was at the back of the house next to the road and was dark. Nowhere to put your shampoo and soap in the shower. Very little attention to detail and I was disappointed. Zac was great.
10,0 Excellent

10,0 Excellent
Pros: I liked how friendly the staff is and they assisted me with a smile. Very friendly.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: _ The location was excellent, right by the beach. Away from the hectic and busy city But still not far from all the “things to do in Capetown” _ The hop on - Hop off buss is just a few meters walk away from the location _ Zack and Sylvia are just wonderful hosts, professional but also understanding, made sure that we were comfortable. cant forget to mention all the tips and tricks regarding the touristy attractions around capetown. _Thanks again for making our time in Capetown a memorable one.
Cons: _ Though it is located by the beach, which I obsoletely love, it is also located next to the street and the noise from the street can unfortunately be a bit of a bother. _ The water drainage or the lack there of by the gate! when it is raining hard like it did when we were there, it is hard to not get your feet wet when coming in. But overall, we were absolutely happy with our stay. Definitely coming back and or recommending The beach Guest house in Hout bay!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Beach House. Sylvie and her staff were friendly and accommodating. Location was excellent with easy access to the beach. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast delicious. This would be my first choice if I return to Hout Bay another time.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: This is excellent accommodation and I had an wonderful stay. Everything was really good - the room, the bed, the bathroom, the breakfast, the location of the property.
Cons: There was nothing I didn't like and I hope to return in the near future to enjoy staying once again at this excellent property.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property and wonderful hosts. Big plus is the dog on the property :) Comfortable room and good breakfast, albeit a bit slow service. Close proximity to the vineyards of Constantia, although we would recommend staying in CT and just do the hop on hop off bus over there instead of staying in this area.
Cons: There is not much to do in Hout Bay and the seafood restaurant (which is why we booked this property in the first place and didn't stay in Cape Town one more night) is highly overrated and does NOT need to be visited, although it is on Cape Town Tourisms "must do's" when in Cape Town. This is not the property's fault however. Stay in Cape Town and use buses to get around instead (see above).
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views from our room. Clean and neat with all amenities. Our host, Sylvia was very friendly and saw to all our needs. Close to the port, secure parking, and delicious breakfast to send you our exploring!
10,0 Excellent

Cons: Stairs when I'm pissed. Good idea not to be pissed.....I guess........ You can't help that

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Surprised when I was expecting a continental breakfast to have a magnificent choice of continental and english breakfast. Carol Anne was an amazing host who was extremely attentive and friendly. She went out of her way to make my stay as short as it was an absolute pleasure. I was enthralled by all the high tech, and took great delight in commanding my way around the room with voice commands for lights, blinds TV coffee etc. Even if you not tech Savvy, the manual alternative was always close at hand.
Cons: The short amount of time I had to stay.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The property has everything you need to be comfortable . The decor creates a very relaxing environment . The BEST feature would be Carole Ann, the manager, who’s hospitality makes you feel like you’re visiting family! Can’t wait to back.
Cons: N/A
10,0 Excellent
Pros: This is one of the Best accommodation I have stayed at, apart from the establishment being upgraded to a point where everything is voice control, you have a house keeper Carol Anne that is litteraly the best. Carol Anne made me feel right at home the minute I walked in. We also had long discussions at the breakfast table, up to the point where she actually said goodbye when we left. I will definitely be coming back, I love the warmth feeling the minute you walk in. You will definitely see me again 10 out of 10

10,0 Excellent

Cons: Nothing. Amazing place
8,3 Excellent
Pros: All was fine. Some technology can kill the feeling. Having an Amazon Echo for driving the room is not the best idea :) The recommandations from Carol Ann to go to the harbor market was really a good one.
Cons: One drawback of the rooms is the poor acoustics from outside and inside of the building. Calling this lodge as eco because of solar panels and water dispenser is quite confusing :)
10,0 Excellent
Pros: From the minute we drove in we were welcomed by perfection! The attention to detail was 11/10. Thank you to Carol-Anne and staff for looking after us and for the superb service we received... Can’t wait to be back for another memorable stay!

Pros: The views are special.
Cons: Lack of daily service... broken doors, holes in the duvet and a terrible smell the entire time we were there. Toilet was so close to the basin I couldn't sit properly. Shower door was not working properly. Really not impressed including that I was told to pay cash for the last night because they had to buy food for the dogs and electricity for the next guests... not sure the owners know what's going on at this place.
