Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Stroll just 100 meters from the door to reach Hout Bay beach. It's also within walking distance of the harbour, not to mention restaurants and shops. The harbour offers daily boat trips to seal island, shops and restaurants. There are many activities in Hout Bay, such as surfing, kayaking, peddle boarding, snorkeling with seals, beautiful hikes, electric bike and motorbike rentals, visit to the World of Birds (largest bird park in Africa) and more.
To explore further afield, simply catch the famous red 'hop on and off' bus around the corner. This citysightseeing bus has various routes on offer and stops at all major tourist locations in Cape Town, including a Cape Point line which stops at the penguins in Simon's Town, Boulders beach as well.
Cape Town City Centre and V&A Waterfront is about 25km away. Constantia Wine Route start 7km from the house. Picturesque Llandudno beach with beautiful sunsets is about 6km from the house. Super markets include Woolworths, Superspar (1km), Pick & Pay, Checkers. Lovely vibrant food and crafts market at the harbour in the weekends. Hout Bay has more than 60 eateries to choose from. We give restaurant recommendations in our house manual and plenty of other tips.

Beautiful Chapmans Peak drive starts in Hout Bay, with dramatic cliffs dropping into the ocean, this is one of the world's most beautiful coastal drives. A mere 20 min drive on this toll road takes you to the rural countryside-feel village called Noordhoek. Noordhoek is known for it's longbeach and has a lovely community centre called the farm village. The beautiful Cape Point Vineyards is also in Noordhoek. If you keep following the coast you will end up at Cape Point Nature Reserve.
