This is my first time in Cape Town, South Africa and I happened to stumble across one of THE nicest places to stay: Hout Bay!
The accommodation at Platinum Guesthouse, the views and the location are just phenomenal. It’s in the midst of everything. Whether you mountain bike, surf, hike, paraglide or just like to get away from it all, this is definitely the place to be.
For example, just at the rear of the Guest House is a gorgeous hike/walk up Mount Rhodes, which takes under an hour and has some of the best views in Cape Town. Panoramic views of Chapman’s Peak, Hout Bay, Llandudno, and Sandy Bay. You can even see all the way down to Peninsula beaches such as Kommetjie. It is a must-do!
I am one lucky Aussie!!!
