The Heart of the Cape

Our guest house is located in Hout Bay, one of the most beautiful suburbs of Cape Town with approximately 30,000 inhabitants. Hout Bay on the Cape Peninsula is surrounded by spectacular mountain landscape on three sides and opens up to the picturesque Atlantic Ocean in the south. It is a perfect starting point for many attractions and activities in the area, particularly hiking trips into the mountains, drives into the famous wine region or visits to the lovely beaches along the coastline. Due to this central location, Hout Bay is known as "The Heart of the Cape".

The Afrikaans word "Hout" means "wood" and derives from the 17th century when the Dutch discovered enough woods around the bay to satisfy their building needs. The rich fauna of seafood, especially lobster banks and pikes, only added to the attractiveness of the bay and made Hout Bay one of the centers of the South African fishing industry. During the last decades the scenic town has attracted more and more tourists, especially from Europe.
