Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Hout Bay is often referred to as “The Republic of Hout Bay”, because life in this corner of the Western Cape has a look, feel and a pulse all of its own. Surrounded on three sides by majestic mountains and a turquoise see, this idyllic enclave with a staunch sense of community spirit, offers incomparable gracious living. It has all the conveniences of a town, but with small village appeals that perfectly complements its quaint fishing harbour and wide open spaces. Beach walks, hiking trails, craft markets, horse riding and many great restaurants and boutiques, as well as famous vineyards, you will find right on your doorstep. Cape Town with it’s Table Mountain, the Waterfront and much more, are only a 15 minutes drive away. Hout Bay is also the perfect starting point for trips to the Cape of Good Hope, the penguins at Boulders Beach and the surrounding winelands. Wale watching and shark diving can be one of the highlights of your holidays.
