My wife and I really enjoyed our brief stay. The cottage was very comfortable and private, offering everything we needed. The view at breakfast was something to behold. Kai was a great host! Thank you.

We stayed for a couple nights in a lovely suite, equipped with a wood burning fireplace that we used in the evenings when it was chilly. Our host graciously provided us with plenty of wood. Her husband is a chef and we had a delicious meal on their back porch one night. The accommodation was very nice and there were...

Lovely room, very clean. breakfast is nice on the veranda. Host is very friendly and accommodating. Worth mentioning if you need to check out early as the host has to wake up and see you out. Wifi only in common areas not in rooms. Quite close to hout bay.

We stayed for three nights and were looked after extremely well by Petra. We stayed in the cottage called Marseille that had its own small terrace with two 'steamers' to relax on. The cottage was really lovely with a lounge/diner, a large bedroom with king size bed and an ensuite bathroom. The lounge was very nicely furnished with a very...

We chose this Guest a House because of its position slightly away from the centre of Hout Bay, because of its room descriptions and because it offered the opportunity of having an evening meal on site. We were very warmly welcomed by Petra. The location is stunning with beautiful, well stocked gardens, a small pool and sun deck and the...

What a great stay in Houtbaai. It is not really in the centre, but that was only great for us, since we needed some peacefulness. There is a small pool and a jacuzzi in the garden and the lovely host is a very nice and warm lady. The guesthouse was very big with a two persons shower and the breakfast...

A very comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings, and an accommodating hostess who supplied us with excellent area info, made restaurant reservations on our behalf and served us delicious breakfasts on their patio. The consummate host! The 'Marseille' cottage was larger than we expected, with a lovely interior (perhaps too lux for us dusty trekkers, but all the more welcome) and...

We thoroughly enjoyed a one night stay at Cap Serein. We only wished we had several nights to fully enjoy our private little cottage! The grounds are amazingly beautiful, quite and peaceful. The room was very clean and well appointed for a longer stay. The main room even has a fireplace for those chilly nights! Although, our favorite part was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High on the mountain slopes overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay, the only noise you’ll encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the koi ponds. Recently restored in the style of Provence, Cap Serein is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine. Each spacious suite and cottage at Cap Serein comes with a Satellite TV, tea/coffee facilities and a private patio. They either overlook the Atlantic, the mountains or the guest house’s gardens. Expect superb breakfasts in our sunroom, with cooked fare and a selection of home-baked pastries. You can also see Kurt’s dinner menu and decide if you’d like to stay in for the evening. We have options for everyone; ranging from three-course meals to a simple snack to end the day. After a dip in the pool, guest can relax on the sun terrace or enjoy a night in our jacuzzi.The shady garden is full of nooks and crannies, with plenty of corners where you can lose yourself in a good book or simply relax under Cape Town's sun. ... more   less
