Stayed here for one week with friends in a self catering apartment and ourselves in a B & B room. Hosts Erica and Gerard couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. Rooms and apartment were very clean and nicely furnished, very comfortable and serviced to a high standard everyday. Able to use their bbq pit Erica even provided plates etc...

We stayed here as this was the only place where we could find accommodation as most of the other places were sold out. We paid in full amount without seeing the rooms and agreed to the asking price but I really feel that we were over charged (way cheaper on booking.com and tripadvisor) and cheated. I would not recommend this...

Very welcoming hosts, felt like coming home. Lots of information about things to do in the area. Was easy to come and go. Very comfortable beds and plenty of warm bedding. Would definately go back and stay there. We loved it.

Enjoyed our stay. Pool and air conditioning would have been great, as it was extremely hot in Cape Town. Otherwise was good, owners very nice and location very convenient to main attractions. Would stay again.

My overall stay at the lodge was EXCELLENT! The owners are very good people. Tour routes from the lodge are also very good and simple. Over a few sand dunes and you on the sea shore - Excellent. Thanks. Draveena and Rickey.

Thanks. I enjoyed my stay. Neat and professional. Excellent breakfast. I recommend this stay over 100%. The owners contacted me well in advance to confirm and welcomed me personally. Houtbay might be one of my favorite destinations. To stay at Brightwater Lodge compliments the experience.

I really like how this accomodation was based in one large-ish building. several vistors at the same time depending the time of year obviously. I really love the friendly owners and the breakfast was very nice. We staying in the suite and it was very cosy and we had lots of privacy.

Location is average, some things are in walking distance, but at night a car or a taxi is definitely needed. We were given the appartment, which is located on the top floor and very spacious. Facilities are outdated though (old furniture, separate warm/cold tap - very annoying!), there is nothing much to get you started (except for some tea), towels...

If you like getting out of the hustle and bustle of the Central City this is your place. Hout Bay is a beautiful spot and convenient to downtown Cape Town, as all points south (Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope) as well as the Cape Wine areas. The B&B itself is a lovely house that is nicely appointed....
