A spacious and private cottage with open plan living, lots of natural light, its own deck and garden, shared pool, and plenty of bird life on over 1 acre of trees and greenery. Located on a quiet cul de sac, the property has great ocean and mountain views (greenery view only from cottage).

Please note that there is a drought in Cape Town and the pool and some garden areas are not being watered (Dec 2016-)! This may affect pool availability.

Lo spazio
This lovely cottage has the feel of a farmhouse, natural wood floors, high ceilings, railroad sleeper window and door lintels, and a blend of beautiful antique Cape Farm wood furniture, comfy and cozy lounge pieces, and modern touches. It's a calm, relaxing, and private space perfect for a getaway or a family holiday.

The cottage sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms (double bed in one and two single beds in the other) with views to greenery and the back of Table Mountain. The bathroom has a double shower and tub for soaking in.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas burning stove and electric oven, cutlery and crockery for 6 (in case you have friends for a meal), a snackwich machine for lazy toasties for lunch, and an assortment of other kitchen tools you might need. There are some beach chairs and towels if you want to head to the sea (Hout Bay and Llandudno beaches are under 10 min away), and extra blankets and a heater if you come during a cold spell. There is free wifi, a sound system (with an assortment of CDs), and some games and books for lazy entertainment. There's also a washing machine and outdoor drying rack for your use.

The cottage has a private front deck with comfy outside couches/chairs, a picnic table for 4, a BBQ/braai, small lawn area, and private garden.

Further up the driveway on the property are more gardens, another cottage and house, a shared pool area which you are welcome to use (POOL CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO WATER RESTRICTIONS IN CAPE TOWN), and access to a "public open space" (our property is the only one with access) with pathways, a stream, and indigenous vegetation that we are rehabilitating. The additional cottage houses a single long term tenant and mini cat and we (2 adults, 3 dogs) are in the house. It's all very private and you will likely not even notice that anyone else is around (though we're happy to answer any questions or chat).

Accesso per gli ospiti
You're free to roam the property including the various gardens, the pool, and the stream area. The dogs and cat spend the day wandering the property.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
There is a severe drought in Cape Town. Please be water conscious! We are not watering garden areas and are not filling the pool. We are putting in measures to try to keep the pool operational despite the low water levels. We understand that a number of guests booked before the severity of the drought was known and have high hopes for the pool. We will try to keep it in decent shape but hope that guests understand the dire water situation for our city and recognise the need to prioritise basic water needs of our city's entire population.

The private garden is accessed via a series of steps that are fairly narrow and moderately steep. The pool on the property is also not completely fenced in. It is also located near trees that, when windy, shed many leaves into the pool. The stream area is fairly rocky/uneven; watch your step if you wander down there. Our dogs are friendly though they may bark at you if you sneak up on them. There are a few bee hives at the top of the property (well out of the way of the cottage) and at the top of the stream area (we can point these out to you), they haven't caused any problems and we get a good supply of honey from them!

Hout Bay is a diverse and beautiful area nestled among 3 different mountain ranges and two coastal drives. It has a country feel to it despite being close to the city and having great amenities- stay here long enough and the local shop keepers will know you by name, you'll spot the regular horses, and you'll have had some of the best food available in Cape Town.

Chapman's Peak Drive is rated as one of the most scenic roads in the world and takes you from Hout Bay south to the long white sand beach of Noordhoek. The 25 minute drive north to the City Bowl along the Atlantic coast along the 12 Apostles is not far behind in terms of beauty. Just over the hill east, the Constantia winelands and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are reached within 10 minutes. Within Hout Bay itself (about 5 minutes by car) you'll find a beach for lounging, SUPing, and paddling, great restaurants, shops that will cover almost anything you need, and a popular harbour market. On the streets near the cottage you'll pass horse riders, dogs and the occasional goat being walked.

There are plenty of mountain trails in the area including some accessed a few blocks from the property. We would be happy to share some of our favourite routes with you. Llandudno beach (about 10 min away by car) is a great sunset spot.

I'm a Northern Californian who has been based in Cape Town for my entire adult life. I love the mountains, oceans, and vibe of my adopted home and spend most of my leisure time hiking, trail running, and mtb with my dogs, friends, and husband. I'm starting to expand my horizons to include the sea and am taking on casual surfing and paddling. At home, I'm busy turning our land into a place for chickens, veggies, fruit trees, and bees. It all sounds rather hippie-ish but I don't think I/we fit that stereotype. Indoor and work time is primarily spent on a social enterprise generator with its first venture being in the world of vocational training (how to sustainably get people into employment). My favourite trips are those where I get to see real, normal, life and meet a range of people in places off the beaten path. Throw in a bit of bike touring or hiking and life is great.

We often work from home and are happy to answer questions, give suggestions, or chat. If you want to be left alone, that's fine too. One of the dogs may come down to visit in the morning, you're welcome to play with him or ignore him as you wish. He loves carrots.
