We had a great stay in Fish Hoek in August 2018 in this unforgettable cliffside cottage. The accommodation itself is well-equipped and very comfortable, and beautifully presented and clean, with good beds. The views across False Bay are breathtaking and change by the minute - sunshine, storms (we had hail!), rainbows. We enjoyed watching seals playing in the kelp below. The kids loved just sitting on the window bench reading, or looking out to sea. To get such an incredible view you have to be fit enough to manage the 60 steepish steps to reach the front door and, inside the house, the staircase to the upper bedroom needs care with small children. We were able to walk easily to Fish Hoek for a great dinner in Barracudas, and Kalk Bay was a short drive away (a bit more modish with a few more restaurants - recommend Satori for pizza). We reached Cape Town centre by car in about 40 mins, and Cape Point was a similar sort of time (with a stop for the penguins in Simon's Town). The area is also good for running, I enjoyed joining several other joggers on an early morning run to Simon's Town and back (c. 7 miles) along the sea footpath. We also appreciated the strong efforts being made here to encourage water management during the drought. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
We stayed in six places on our holiday and this was the best view. Humpback Whales seen from the balcony. Well equipped and homely. The steep steps down were a bit of a surprise. Might be worth mentioning them for anyone less able.
