Fred's place is in a lovely residential spot perched in the hills in hout bay. If you like running, you can head straight up the hills and down to nearby sandy bay, which is stunning, and then back around. The photos don't quite do the room, gardens and pool justice. It's a good space with some unique architectural features tucked under a big tree, right next to the pool. You will be well sheltered there and protected by a friendly cat and dog.

The location was beautiful, the cottage was private and set in a lovely garden next to the pool. Hout bay is very nice, close to Constantia wine estates and several good restaurants, about 30 minutes drive to Cape Town. At check in Fred gave us quick instructions and then we did not see much of them, so you have private space. The kitchen space is nice for cooking, everything is comfortable. Our only difficulty was with the pool. It was bright green at the time we were there with serious algae growth. The time of the year is very warm so this could be the problem. I am also a pool owner so I know that chemicals are a must for this pool. Therefore if the pool is important to you please check with the owners first if they can chemical treat it, I'm sure it can be fixed and it was just the current situation. Secondly, the place is not advertised to have wifi/internet, and this is true as we couldn't get reception in the cottage but we did get a little outside in the garden. However this is as advertised. Nevertheless we really enjoyed our stay, and the lovely garden and comfortable cute cottage, and would recommend the place!

Our stay in Fred's poolhouse was just wonderful. The location is great for people who enjoy peace and privacy. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet. But shops and restaurants are still nearby (+/- 5 min drive). The pool is awesome (Fred told us that the pool area is a shared area but we had the pool all to ourselves during our 3 day-stay!). And we just loved the twin shower! Fred, his wife and pets (a beautiful dog and cat) were also really friendly and welcoming! Would definitely recommend it!

Lovely place and friendly hosts; I've really enjoyed my 10-day stay in the pool cottage; it is very spacious, nicely furbished with recent furniture and tasteful decor. The kitchen is well equipped, enough that I almost ate all my meals there. The cottage is set in a quiet place and has a lot of privacy with regards to the main house and the other house rented. I've particularly enjoyed long breakfasts and late afternoon drinks on the terrasse by the pool. Wish I was still there ! Thanks Fred & Sandrine !

Sandrine et les enfants nous ont chaleureusement accueillis lors de notre arrivée et ont toujours été disponibles pour nous aider lorsque nous en avions besoin. La maison est agréable, situee dans un quartier résidentiel de Houtbay. La plage de Landudno conseillée par Sandrine est un vrai coin de Paradis et le restaurant Chene's est une très bonne expérience culinaire. La situation de la maison est idéale pour profiter de la plage, pour se rendre dans Captown en 20 mn, pour rejoindre les vignes de Constantia en 10 mn ou pour partir en excursion vers Cape Point. Experience globale tres sympathique!

Leaving France in 2010, for a two years roadtrip with our children's across Africa, Fred & Sandrine have decided to drop our suitcases in this beautiful town five years ago, and this city is a delight that we want to share.

But not only Cape Town, should I say, the beautiful surrounding nature of the all western cape.

The house is situated in Hout Bay (20 minutes from the City center) which is a very nice area with full of surprises of all kind and the start of the amazing scenic road "chapman's peak". Only 10 minutes walking from Sandy bay, this amazing piece of nature is a paradise for hiking, riding, sliding on the dune, enjoy the sundowner on the beach!, also close to Llandudno beach (5min drive) which is one of the most beautiful beach of Cape town.

Hout Bay is a paradise for all nature lovers, hikers, sportsmen whatever the sport you practice even surf if you don't mind of cold water.

Sandrine can organize for you some beautiful hiking (10min walk from the house), You just have to book with her.
We also can get in touch with good guides to visit the most beautiful places.

The omnipresent sea, also, has its share of surprises ;
whales in season, Cape penguins, seals, sharks.... and breathtaking points of view.
