The space

Built from ancient granite and sandstone, and with a large centre skylight, and set in lovely lush garden nestled right beneath the mountain, the studio has a magical, cosy feel about it. We are located next to a nature reserve in Hout Bay, a two minute walk from a beautiful forest, and a 5 minutes drive from the beach. Famous Wine route only 5 min away by car, Camps Bay 15 min, and city centre 20 min. Relax and unwind in this special environment at the foot of what has been described in the guide book as 'the most beautiful walk on Table Mountain". We have another listing (older) on the same estate, with many great reviews

Guest access

There is a pool next door at the main house which can be used on those hot days, and a lovely fire place in the garden.

Interaction with guests

We are always close by to help with your holiday, may it just be information or some knowledge of a fabulous walk. We are also passionate ocean lovers, so if you are interested in a surf, paddle, or SUP adventure, let us know!

The neighbourhood

Really great walks from our door step right into the forest. Wonderfully located for all major highlights in Cape Town. A very safe area, kid friendly.

Getting around

I would advise to hire a car. If you are planning to stay at home, you could take a taxi here and then just chill, but with so much to see it is recommended to hire a car.

Other things to note

The is a main room for two adults, but it is possible to add two beds to the main space for kids.

Jonny and Celeste are truly kind and there welcome is warm. The house is artistically decorated with a homely feeling. In the kitchen you will find most of the things you need to cook a meal but hey....eating at one of the restaurant closeby is also a good option. Maybe a bbq in the lovely garden is even better. We really loved making campfires. Our 3 year old son loved it too. So good to see him running arround with a happy face. Especially the trampoline and playing with the dogs and cats. For us it was a very relaxing place surrounded by nature (good place for very nice walks) and peace...a little paradise. Jonny and Celeste, thank you for the lovely time. We hope to come back soon and maybe stay a little longer.

It is really a wonderful place to be and we spent a lovely four week holiday. The garden and the pool were a perfect playground for our three year old daugther and Celeste and Jonny had everything there necessary for our baby girl. Their dogs accompanied us by our forest walks. The location of the cottage is good for all typical sightseeing tours in and around Cape Town. Jonny and Celeste were very nice hosts! They made helpful suggestions, were open-minded and even borrowed us their guitar. We would definitely choose this place again for another Cape Town trip.

The welcome from the host Jonny was warm and friendly . The area is quiet and well treed with great views of the mountain. The house is well suited for a family with children rather than four adults

Everything was exactly as described. The house is beautiful, open, and airy. The locations is fabulous. Tucked up in a wooded valley with big trees and just minutes to Cape Town, Constantia, and Camp's Bay. We had a lovely stay.

We had an excellent stay at this property. It was perfectly charming and a terrific blend of seclusion and privacy that I was looking for but was also conveniently located near most of the places that were on the agenda. It's a quick hop over Constantia nek to the 'other side' and equally close to the superb beaches of Llundudno and Noordhoek. The Market at Hout Bay Harbor was also pleasantly intriguing. Celest and Johnny were superb hosts and even catered for beach towels. Coffee, milk and breakfast items were a welcome surprise since who wants to shop just after flying 24 hrs to get there? I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a unique and private place to unwind, cook over your own fire or just lie back and look at the stars. Thanks Celest and Johnny! Best of luck for 2016 and I hope to be back again someday.

Celeste and I love the outdoors and draw our inspiration from nature. We have both traveled the globe, and have made this beautiful valley close to the ocean our home. Trail running, yoga, walking, surfing, and kayaking are close to our hearts - but mostly sharing our knowledge and passion of this beautiful place on earth we find ourselves in.
