I couldn't rate this property high enough. The house was lovely and spacious and beautifully decorated. Fully equipped kitchen and ample of space for our family. We loved the location which felt like it was nestled between two mountains. The outside space was truly amazing. Beautiful garden with loads of space for kids to explore. Lovely pool and lounger area. Gloria, the cleaner, was lovely and did an amazing job. Tracy was there at check in and check out only so gave us our space, but was always ready on text to answer any queries we had. She also provided us with an amazing list of local things to do locally. All in all a wonderful stay and would highly recommend.

House was exactly as described. Excellent location. Just minutes from Hout Bay and its shops and restaurants. Easy access to Constantia and it's wineries and Cape Town Centre. House and kitchen fully equipped with everything you would need and more. Tracy and her husband were very welcoming and any questions or problems were dealt with quickly. We had a 9 month old with us and Tracy provided a cot, high chair and even a paddling pool which made our lives a lot easier. Having Gloria (the maid) and her husband for a couple of days a week was a very welcome bonus. We would have no hesitation in staying in this property again. Who wouldn't want to sit outside on the veranda as the sun goes down, sipping a class of wine and looking at the glorious view?

From the moment we arrived, we couldn't have been made more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The bungalow was just as it is in the pictures - fabulous! For 6 of us the 3 bedrooms were just right and the living area gave us all space to spread out. The kitchen had everything you could need and more.The pool was perfect for the weather, as it was very hot. The position of the property - just outside Hout Bay - was great. It was peaceful to be out of the town, however we were near enough to shops , cafes and the beach with a short drive. We hired a car so were able to visit lots of places nearby and had a couple of days on safari. A brilliant location and hosts. Thank you Tracy and Louie.

Tracy was very accommodating and helpful, shopping for us before we got there, providing travel cot and high chair and toys etc. This house is in a lovely setting with mountain views on two sides. Great outdoor space too. The house is spacious and has most of what you need (but no dishwasher!), but this is not high spec. accommodation - it is a worn-in family home with some TLC needed (cracked window panes, ripped sofa, internal doors that don't quite close, missing lightbulbs, broken fridge door handle). Quite nice not to walk on eggshells if you have kids though! The beds are comfy. I would have liked to know in advance that the house is less than 1km as the crow flies from a large township, which made me a little uneasy particularly as some locals told me the crime level is higher in the area because of this. The house also has less security than many of its neighbours. That said, we didn't have any problems during our stay. There are also dogs at the properties on each side of the house and they bark. A lot. You find this in a lot of SA though. All in all a pleasant stay and I would recommend the house for families etc.

Response from Tracy:
The entire (small) Village of Hout Bay is at most points, few kms as the crow flies away from a Township. There are 2 historical townships in HB. Most visitors to Hout Bay do the Township Tours, It is a Tourist attraction full of diversity and rich South African heritage and really a wonderful experience. We have never had any security issues at all, at my home so I think that comment is perhaps comment for Hout Bay in general and not about my residential area specifically which is a highly desired area with a very proud close knit network of neighbours. We love our home and are in no way threatened with crime.
