We love visiting our home in Hout Bay because we are relaxed from the moment we arrive and are already looking forward to returning the day we leave. We love eating out and have found the most amazing restaurants on our doorstep and great value for money. The people of South Africa are some of the nicest we have ever met and have always made us so welcome, it really is our home from home and we adore it as we know everyone else will.
It was love at first sight when we first saw BOWN MANOR, there were no second thoughts we bought it immediately. The location and views in our opinion are amazing, you will not be disappointed. We love to have a sundowner on the patio and watch the amazing sunsets, light the braai and enjoy a BBQ then we quite often have an evening swim in the pool. We each have our cameras at the ready to see who can capture the best sunset. My daughter-in-law is the current winner! Walking around the indigenous garden is also a delight we have enjoyed having it landscaped and choosing each indigenous plant and tree, every year we can't wait to see how well it's doing. Waking up in the morning and seeing the view from our bedroom is so wonderful we look forward to opening the curtains & the patio doors then run back into bed and sit and enjoy the view. We love the open plan design of the house, there is plenty of space for 8 people, everyone can do their own thing or enjoy each others company, we find it very easy going and all our friends and family love it.
THIS VILLA HAD THE MOST AMAZING VIEWS OVER HOUT BAY, IT WAS SPACIOUS (THERE WERE 8 OF US)VERY CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED. THE IN HOUSE STAFF WERE FANTASTIC AND NOTHING TOO MUCH TROUBLE. CLOSE TO ALL AMENITIES. WE HAD A FABULOUS 23 DAY HOLIDAY WITH FAMILY AND WOULD NOT HESITATE TORECOMMEND THIS VILLA. THE OWNERS ALSO KEPT IN TOUCH TO MAKE SURE WE HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING OUR FAMILY REUNION A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
Landing in Cape Town airport after a 12 hour flight on Virgin Atlantic was the beginning of a wonderful holiday to come.
The drive to Hout Bay was both exciting and picturesque.
As we approached Bown Manor the sight of it was breathtaking.
On entering the property we were greeted with spacious, immaculate and well kept surroundings both inside and out.
The bedrooms were large enough to lounge in and admire the views of the sea and mountainous areas from the balcony or patio.
The downstairs with its extensive amount of space made it easy to relax and do your own thing.
The staff connected to this property were friendly, helpful and we found it reassuring to have them on hand if we needed anything.
The local supermarkets such as Woolworths, Superspar and Checkers stocked everything we needed and much more.
There are many restaurants around offering a wide choice of food, but our favourites became The Food Barn, Mount Nelson and Pakalolo.
A car is essential to appreciate this wonderful area ,we visited Robbin Island, Table Mountain, Cape Point to name but a few places ,the vineyards are an essential visit.
We clocked up over 1500 miles during our 2 week stay and every mile travelled was a pleasure.
This country has so much to offer, we have only scratched the surface of this great place.
We already have ideas of what to next if we return to Bown Manor.
Have returned to this property several times as it meets all our requirements.
Having travelled extensively in this area over several visits and spending more than six months of the past 5 years in South Africa, I have not yet found a more perfect location for our visits than Bown Manor.
The property is located high on the north facing hillside overlooking the town and bay of Hout Bay. As a result of the location the views are spectacular but, unless you enjoy mountaineering , a car is essential. Being north facing the property enjoys the sun later into the evening than the south facing properties. The property is just 25 minutes from Cape Town City centre (via one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world) and 35 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.. Driving in South Africa is a joy - similar to the UK in the 1960's.
The property is VERY spacious, is well furnished and equipped and is maintained to a very high standard. The owner description on this site gives more details.
One of our favourite pastimes when we visit the Western Cape is Dining Out. The quality, number and variety of Restaurants is truly incredible. Some of our favourites are:-
The Foodbarn, Noordhoek (25 minutes via Chapmans Peak Drive),
Hout Bay Manor Hotel (2minutes),
Kitima (Thai - 5 minutes - especially the Sunday Buffet),
Mariners Wharf (3 minutes - especially the Lobster Thermidor),
Nellies (25 minutes - Afternoon Tea or Sunday Brunch at The Mount Nelson Hotel),
La Colombe, Constantia Valley (20 minutes) *****,
La Grande Roche, Paarl (70 minutes),
Lord Neethlingshof, Stellenbosch (65 minutes).
I am sure that there are many I have forgotten, many to find in the future and many to revisit.. It is very rare that we have been disappointed with eating out in South Africa. We find that the very best Restaurants are located on vineyards.
Then there is the wine............................
