Head south from Camps Bay along Cape Town’s coastal road and you’ll soon reach the seaside suburb of Hout Bay. Hout means wood in Dutch and the early sailors and colonists used to fell timber here; many of the slopes around the town are still densely forested.

Hout Bay is a worthy destination in itself. It has a working fishing fleet and freshly caught fish can be bought from the little harbour. Mariner’s Wharf is a kind of mall full of curio shops with a good seafood restaurant. It’s fun simply to wander around the small harbour or walk behind it to Andrews Road and the Hout Bay Museum.

Bay View House is in an area of Hout Bay called Hillcrest and is a magnificent, architect-designed, modern, three-storey house on the side of the Baviaanskloof Mountain featuring panoramic mountain and beach/harbour views.

It has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, and three of the bedrooms are en-suite. All bathrooms have both a bath and a shower. It has a huge open-plan kitchen with counter seating leading on to the dining room and lounge. A separate TV room adjoins the kitchen and there is garaging available for three cars.

The expansive patio leads off the lounge with an infinity pool and wonderful views of the beach and bay.

The house is on three levels and sleeps ten people comfortably.
