Come and share our piece of paradise with us. A totally private garden apartment with secure parking, a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area leading on to a sun drenched patio and deck. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. We are within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shops and the MyCiti bus to the centre of Cape Town. If you wish to hike up the mountain or run up Chapman's Peak, they are both literally on our doorstep. Hout Bay has a vibrancy all of its own!

The space

If you wish to travel as 4 persons, there is an adjacent spacious en suite double bedroom which can be accessed from the garden flat. Please inquire directly about this via email. There will be an additional charge for this of R350.00 per night.

Guest access

Guests have a totally private entrance and secure parking bay. The swimming pool, with beach beds, is very popular to drench up the sun, especially after jet lag!

Interaction with guests

We are happy to assist you to ensure you get the full range of whatever your interests include. We have beautiful mountain tracks on our doorstep. You can hire bicycles, kayaks, horses, a wine expert for local tours, mountain hiking guides, golf courses nearby and do a local township tour or any number of activities. We have information available in your accommodation but please don't hesitate to ask.

Other things to note

Hout Bay is a vibrant village with both beach and mountains. Our house provides easy walking access to and from the village center with lovely local restaurants (10min walking), a beach (10min walking) as well as the harbour market with craft beers, live music and curios (30min walking). We have a list of restaurants in your welcome book, to assist you in deciding on how to spend your evenings.

I can only highly recommend Jean's place. It offers extremely good value for money for a large spacious apartment in a quite and beautiful setting. My wife and I had a fantastic stay and only wished it could have been longer! We're both from Cape Town, so staying here was a bit of a holiday in our own city, which we are so glad we did.

Agreed Gareth and Kath, great to have some 'locals' simply enjoying 'local' stuff in this beautiful city of ours.

We spent six days in Jean's appartment and it was perfect for us. The house is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood and the appartment itself is super nice. Everything feels new and it was spotlessly clean. The location is good with a great number of restaurants and grocery store within a couple of minutes walking. Jean is a warm and welcoming host with a great sense of humour. Highly recommended if you want to stay in a nice and small town near Cape Town!

We felt very comfortable and private. A real place to find tranquility. Sleeping well in good beds, a lot of space in a tasteful and clean house. We've missed nothing. Jean is a very generous host, discreet and empathic. We're happy having found Jean, her husband and Lucky, their faithful fellow. Next time we´ll stay longer :-)

Stayed at Bird Song accommodation during our trip to Hout Bay Cape Town. The apartment is part of the main dwelling but totally private. There is ample parking for one car with secure access. The accommodation is modern and well equipped with nice decking and plenty of shading from sun. I would advise the accommodation is not suitable for less mobile as there are steps and inclines. The hosts live on site and are always available for help and advice. The centre of the resort is a fifteen minute walk downhill with plenty of parking along the resort front. There is a good selection of restaurants and shopping. The resort has a woolworth supermarket similar to an M&S plenty of fresh food for self catering. I am sure there are plenty of places to stay closer to the centre however to experience peace and tranquillity this accommodation ticks all boxes.

Our stay at Cape Birdsong Cottage was simply amazing. The cottage is beautiful and the location as well is just great as you feel as though you are deep in the nature. It is tranquil but at the same time, not too far away from the city and the tourist attractions. The cottage is exactly like the pictures - it is spacious, comfortable and clean, and refreshingly cool in the Cape Town summer heat. Jean went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and was extremely helpful and accommodating. We would definitely come back here as everything was just perfect. Thank you so much Jean!
