We and the kids enjoyed having a Braai in the garden and a swim in the cool pool. The kids loved the trampoline and also the peacocks and the horses! We will come...

Kings place was absolutely lovely. Value for money and an ideal place to relax and take in the sights. Staff were helpful and out of sight giving us that "holiday feeling". Apartment had all the amenities. Felt like a home away from home. Well done the kings place.

The King's place is the most super place to stay. Nestled in the quiet, peaceful sanctity of Hout Bay - it is the only place we like to stay in Cape Town. The Kings get the balance perfect - they are available whilst not being constantly popping in. We love The King's Place and will be returning for our third...
