Tamsin Hall
ZenCapeTown Holiday house is a unique property with a Rustic farm-style elegance. The house is a large double-story with the main bedroom located on the 2nd floor. This bedroom has a private bathroom with a double shower and toilet. The 2nd bedroom is downstairs with a double bed and doors opening onto a wide patio. There is a second bathroom with shower downstairs. The house has a large garden and swimming pool and a jungle like vista not unlike Vietnam. We are situated on the slopes of the mountain in Hout Bay. There is a semi-detached apartment where the owners stay when we have guests. We have a separate entrance on a different street and a private garden. You may catch a rare glimpse of us through the trees but it is a large acre property and no spaces are shared. You will feel you are quite alone in nature. A perfect spot if you love out-doors, swimming and BBQ or Braai. We also provide guests with a fully stocked kitchen with herbs and spices, teas and coffees and cleaning materials so you don't need to do a major shop for basic requirements. We have 2 cats that live on the property but feel free to lock them out as they have a place to sleep 🙂 in our apartment.
I am the owner of this listing. I love nature and out-doors, and especially enjoy sharing the things I would love to find in a Holiday House with the guests that we receive here. Our Bohemian style makes this space unique with gorgeous outdoor bars, hammocks, giant trees and a magical atmosphere. There is a bluetooth Harmon Cardon speakers in the lounge. A big fireplace for cozy winter nights and a fantastic kitchen to cook in. Enjoy the 5 plate gas hob and oven. Eat out in the garden. Take the floating tubes up to Silvermine Dam for a swim and a pick nick. This is a perfect home for a family getaway.
ZenCapeTown Holiday House is situated on the slopes of the mountain in Hout Bay facing the sunsets. A 100 meters up from the house you will find yourself on the mountain slopes where there are numerous hikes but be sure to get clear directions and take a cellphone with you. The neighbourhood is quiet and very safe however walking around at night has its risks and is not recommended. We are a kilometer up from the beach, shops, restaurants, the famous Hout Bay Manor hotel, Chapmans Peak drive and more. Hout Bay has every amenity you could wish for but a holiday atmosphere and community. There are boat rides to seal island, township tours, hiking, biking, supping, surfing and more. Uber is everywhere. Cape Town city center is a 25 minute drive. Camps Bay and Clifton beaches or 15 and 20 minutes drive. There is everything you need in our valley for you to enjoy your stay!
