I love travelling. I work both in academia and consult to organisations. I work from home. I am South African and lived most of my life in Cape Town - which is the best city. I love movies, music, keep fit by running on the mountains with my dog.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Owner chose Scott Estate
Beautiful views of mountain and Sea from the main deck. Very relaxing and peaceful environment. There are lots of quirky statues in the garden. I have a friendly border collie dog that loves people.
What makes this Cottage unique
From the pool can see the mountains. From the main deck, there is a beautiful sea view to sit and watch the sunset. These are all in the shared space of the garden. Have your own private patio where there is a pond with fish and frogs.

A fabulous place to relax and enjoy a lovely break
We had a wonderful time here in Hout Bay. The property was itself was very quiet and relaxing with lovely gardens, views and pool, but near to the centre of Hout Bay with its great beach and restuarants. The property had everything we needed and there was a lovely powerful shower. The Host, Michelle was very welcoming-she even waited up for us when we arrived after midnight from a late flight. A special mention must go to Blu the dog who is very friendly but very polite! We would happily return and can recommend this as a great place to stay. Thank you, Mary and Geoff
Thank you Mary and Geoff, it was wonderful to meet and have you stay. You were the perfect guests and are most welcome back anytime. Hope to see you soon!! warm regards Michelle
From the moment we arrived at Stoneyview Michelle made us feel really welcome as did her dog Blue who greeted us each morning and welcomed us in the driveway after we had been out for the day. Michelle even left a bottle of wine and some sweets for our first evening in the cottage. She provided us with lots of useful information about local restaraunts and shops and was easily contactable for any queries we might have.
We had a wonderful relaxing staying at the property, which is really peaceful. The accomodation itself was extremely comfortable and clean with decor in keeping with the setting. All the amenities we needed to make meals were available. Michelle even arranged for our clothes to be washed and hung out to dry on the Monday after we arrived. She also provided lots of interesting books to read both fiction and non-fiction and some games to play, which were very useful on the one or two rainy days during our stay.
There is an area to sit outside to have breakfast and a beautiful decking area around the swimming pool with sunloungers and outdoor furniture, which has magnificent views over Hout Bay. There is also a shaded area in the garden with a hammock and table and chairs, where we were able to cool off and have a relaxing lunch.
The property is within walking distance of the local shops and restaraunts and the beach, although it is a steep walk up the hill back, so we tended to drive however this would be doable in an Uber also.
Stoneyview is in a great position to get to Chapman's Peak Drive, Constantia wine estates and Kirstenbosch and many other places besides. If you didn't have a car I believe it would be fairly easy to get around on the red hop on hop off buses.
We had an amazing stay at Stoneyview and thanks so much Michelle for making our time at your place so memorable and for your fantastic hospitality, we would definitely stay at Stoneyview again if we came back to Capetown, many thanks Adrienne and Lionel.
Stunning views, clean & quiet
We very much enjoyed our stay with Michelle at her beautiful home tucked onto the mountainside. The moment you enter her gate her sweet dog, Blu, is there to greet you. The two bedroom is attached to Michelle’s house and has its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom making it very private and secure. The backyard and pool sit with dramatic mountain views and views of Hout’s Bay. Michelle was there to answer all of our questions but at the same time gave us plenty of space and privacy. We would highly recommend a trip to Hout’s Bay Market on Friday night - great food, music and shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would come back again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much Michelle!
