Self Catering Resorts

Houtkapperspoort’s 26 charming and elegant self contained cottages are set in beautifully landscaped, park-like grounds on the back slopes of Table Mountain at Constantia Nek about 18 minutes (18km) from the centre of Cape Town.  It is an oak-lined drive of about 7 minutes to Hout Bay or the restaurants and swish shopping malls of the Southern Suburbs. Constantia and its vineyards are adjacent to the property on the east, and the Cape Peninsula National Park with all its wonderful hiking trails is directly on our northern boundary

Houtkapperspoort is the 2003, 2004 and 2005 winner of the AA Travel Guides Accommodation Awards in the self catering resort category, and has been in the Hall of Fame for 2006 and 2007.

The cottages are graded from four to five stars (highest grading possible) by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, yet the tariff offers remarkable value for money and exceptional exclusivity (book very early for peak season!).

The units range in size from one to four bedrooms and are tastefully furnished, have DSTV, telephone, safe, bed linen and towels, pergola covered veranda, braai facilities (barbecue), fridge, cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware. Cooking facilities include either a three or four plate electric stove with oven and microwave. The cottages are serviced daily and are fully equipped for short or long stays, business or leisure, for singles and couples, or for the whole family.

Most cottages have air-conditioning and some have fireplaces. The one and two bedroom cottages are single or double storey and have either one or two bathrooms per unit. The three bedroom cottages have two or three bathrooms and all four bedrooms in the manor house are en-suite. The resort offers all the usual facilities including tennis court and pool, TV, DSTV, Wi-Fi internet at reception, laundry service, babysitting after hours, liquor licence, and 24-hour security control.

Enjoy a cup of coffee at the office main building or on the patio which has a beautiful view of the Twelve Apostels mountain range, or join us for an optional continental breakfast at a nominal fee. Bookings are essential. Please book by 17h00 the day before.
