HOUT BAY MANOR



Recently awarded 5 star status, Hout Bay Manor Ė originally a Cape Georgian home - has had a fabulous makeover by one of the cityís most talented interior designers, Boyd Ferguson. Anyone who knows Boydís work (think top lodges Singita and Tswalu) will be blown away by its new look: jewel-like colours bring together old colonial and modern contemporary with humour and creative style. Minutes from the beaches and the stunning Chapmanís Peak Drive, or 20 minutes from the City Bowl, itís a must for any Cape visitor.

Set high above the harbour and the Waterfront shopping precinct, and with its own garden, private pool and spa, this elegant, historical villa is serviced by a discreet staff, who waft gracefully across the lawn in their all-white linens. Itís a secret, undiscovered haven (for now) for anyone who wants to be right in the heart of the city and experience its working harbour, yet feel like theyíre living in an eminently comfortable, yet contemporary country home. Book into one of its five luxurious rooms or the gorgeously spacious suite to experience boutique hotel style at its best.
