Hout Bay General Information
Hout Bay villas and luxury self catering holiday accommodation are blessed with mountain views or views of the pearly sands and turquoise waters of this crescent-shaped Cape Town coastal bay. Hout Bay lends its name to the lush indigenous forests which once covered the slopes of this bustling coastal community. An enchanting area of Cape Town, Hout Bay has rapidly developed into a lively hot-spot of the Cape Peninsula, offering holiday makers lovely self catering accommodation and holiday villas, as well as an endless array of tourist attractions, restaurants and activities.
One such holiday attraction is Hout Bay beach - a 1.5km stretch of gleaming white sands and azure waters, ideal for sun tanning, safe swimming, water-skiing, scuba diving and surfing. The beach is flanked by a lively Cape Town fishing harbour, which offers fabulous boat trips to nearby Seal Island, the local shipwreck and romantic sunset cruises along the Cape Town coastline. To get a true feel of Capetonian life, take a visit to the harbour when the fishing crews bring in their wares and haggle with the friendly Hout Bay fishermen for some freshly caught seafood, to be cooked in the privacy of your luxury villa accommodation. Imagine dining al fresco under the Cape Town stars on your villa's patio; enjoying your fresh seafood and watching the fishing boats sailing in and out of Hout Bay harbour.
What more reasons do you need to book luxury accommodation in one of Hout Bay's villas? Well, other attractions of this lovely Cape Town holiday destination include the large variety of wonderful restaurants and cafés Hout Bay offers; its charming weekly craft market, a world-famous bird-sanctuary, wonderful horse-riding trails and the exquisite Chapman's Peak Drive which leads from Hout Bay to the more Southern coastal communities of Noordhoek and Kommetjie. This meandering road curves along a nine kilometre stretch of steep Cape Town coastline and offers a myriad of viewpoints from which to gaze at the breathtakingly beautiful Cape Town coastline and its glowing sunsets.
Hout Bay offers a large range of holiday accommodation, varying from expansive holiday villas, to luxury self catering townhouses, vacation apartments and charming cottages. Cape Villa Collection offers the above Hout Bay villas and luxury holiday accommodation.
