FOUNTAIN HOUSE CAPE TOWN HOUT BAY
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Cape Cod comes to Cape Town! Pretty, relaxed beach-style home set high up on the mountainside with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and from this elevated position stunning views down towards the beach and Hout Bay's fishing Harbour. With a complete home from home experience with all the little luxuries you want when on holiday, from good coffee to a great sound system, relaxing on the various balconies keeping an eye on the children running around the garden and playing in the pool and when they are tired from all the activities to lounging in front of big screen TV's while the adults sit back and enjoy spectacular sunsets.
Offering 4 bedrooms including luxurious master suite, the house is perfect for families, (although not young children as the pool is uncovered and there are high balconies). Just a few minutes drive to the local child friendly beach of Hout Bay, all the shops you will need and a variety of great restaurants and bars, from family friendly to the more sophisticated.
A 10 minute drive takes you along the beautiful coastal road to LLANDUDNO, then through to CAMPS BAY with its palm fringed beach-front and cosmopolitan Strip. A little further along the coast will take you to the V&A WATERFRONT. .

The Western Cape region
Cape Town, the gateway to Africa for many visitors to this spellbinding continent, is one of the top tourist destinations worldwide. The beautiful city was recently named Africa's leading destination at the fifth World Travel Awards in Antigua - and once you've visited, you'll understand why.
This unique area is considered one of the most spectacular in Africa. Nothing about Cape Town is predictable, from its cosmopolitan mixture of European, African and Asian culture to its first-class banking and financial sector, and its thrilling array of restaurants, entertainment venues, stunning beaches, wine routes and mountain scenery.
The enchanting village of Hout Bay, once a grazing area for the Dutch East India Company's cattle, is now a patchwork of smallholdings and farms and residential homes. The name Hout Bay is derived from the Afrikaans Houtbaai (Wood Bay) "The forests are the finest in the World and contain timber as long, thick and straight as one would wish" (a quote from Jan van Riebeeck 1653).
Today Hout Bay is a thriving fishing village, with a beautiful, long, sandy beach, surrounded by majestic mountain ranges. It has everything you could possibly wish for from a friendly shopping centre, abundant restaurants, easy access to the Winelands, Camps Bay, the V&A Waterfront, 2010 Soccer Stadium and the world famous Chapman's Peak Drive.
