Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Scenic Hout Bay is a lively coastal town with a lovely swimming beach and a picturesque harbour where you can buy some of the best fish and chips in the world.

Theres an abundance of restaurants, shops and pubs in this vibrant little town, and although Hout Bay is something of a sleepy fishing village, the nightlife is hot and happening, especially during peak season. We start off with sundowners at Dunes which is on the main beach, followed by a the best sea food meal at Mariners Wharf. Chapmans Peak Hotel also has excellent sea food options and views. Another option is a craft beer at Woodcutters, then to Ragafellows next door for great burgers.

Browse in the Hout Bay Craft Market, where you can pick up a range of curios made locally and from further north.

The Bay Harbour Market comprises of over 100 stalls, from delicious food to locally made items and is open on weekends. Visit the market on Fridays from 5pm to 9pm, Saturdays & Sundays 9:30am to 4pm. The entire market is indoors so if the wind or rain threatens to keep you from stepping out, come find some treats and a great vibe here at the edge of the harbour, at the Bay Harbour Market.

Kids of all ages will love the World of Birds, which has more than 3000 birds housed in its large aviaries. There are also many small animals that call the place home – make sure you visit the walk-in monkey jungle, for example.

For great views of the bay enjoy a cruise to Duiker Island, also called Seal Island – a large seal colony – with Circe Launches, Drumbeat Charters or Nauticat Charters. (The Seal Island in Hout Bay, however, is not to be confused with the larger Seal Island in False Bay, where great white sharks are sometimes spotted.)

Enjoy some of the freshest seafood at the Mariner’s Wharf. The area was South Africa’s very first maritime harbour-front emporium. More than 25 years old, popular Mariner’s Wharf includes the 350-seater restaurant, the Wharfside Grill, fast-food seafood bistro, the Wharfette Bistro, a fish market, sushi bar, bakery, nautical gift and curio shops and a nautical antique shop.

If you’re a keen walker, the beaches around Hout Bay are wonderful for long strolls, and The Sentinel is a popular climb. Adventure lovers might also enjoy kayaking, mountain biking, fishing charters and jet-skiing – all available in the Hout Bay area.

This will be no ordinary vacation.
Pop down to the quaint harbor, with its restaurants and gift shops, markets and yachts. Buy fresh fish straight off the fishing boat. Hire a SUP (Stand up Paddle board) and paddle across the bay or for the more adventurous, kayak out to Seal Island (4km) and visit hundreds of seals. If paddling isn't for you take a seal charter and go snorkeling with the seals. For terrestrials hike to the top of Chapmans Peak or Table Mountain or go zip-lining in the forest. Rest days must be spent at the famous Constantia Winelands (5km drive) for a wine-tasting and culinary experience, or stroll around the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (7km drive). Visit our very own vibrant township. A guide will show you around and tell you its story, then take you to a shebeen for home- made beer and local cuizine. Hout Bay has it all!

PS The back garden is a magical fairy forest of milkwood trees and swimming pool. There is a braai area with seating and plenty of wood for barbeque-ing steak or a fresh fish.

Agneta the house keeper will be available to clean the house every morning 9am till 12pm.
Robert the gardener will sweep the leaves and clean the braai area.
