There has to be a good reason why guests return to our wonderful country South Africa, and in particular to this specific area nestling on the back slopes of Table Mountain. Flanked by the majestic Twelve Apostles mountain range and the Constantia Berg mountain range, lies Houtkapperspoort Mountain Retreat which has a rich history of roping and lugging logs to Hout Bay Harbour and loading them for shipping to Table Bay harbour.

Today guests can relax and enjoy these same beautiful views from their comfortable accommodation in the Hout Bay valley. For 27 years Houtkapperspoort Resort has played an important role in our local as well as international guests’ annual holidays to Hout Bay, and we are very proud of our reputation of offering accommodation of the highest standard in South Africa – Cape Town, whilst the tariff remains remarkable value for money.

With 16 charming, fashionable and superbly appointed Self Catering cottages, Houtkapperspoort Mountain Retreat can offer a variety of cottages for our guests to choose from, depending on their requirements or needs.
