We visited Hout Bay after Christmas to celebrate the new year in another town. The town is very clean, well organised safe. Staying at Abalone Beach Cottages one made the holiday more wonderful. The apartment is clean, well maintained and has all the homely equipment one may need. Everything is easy to find and makes you comfortable. The location is ideal as its a 5 minute walk or less from local restaurants, bar, supermarket and the beach. Its also right next to Chapmans peak drive. If its too hot to stay at the beach, the swimming pool is a great place to cool down on hot days. Overall a good place to spend with family or friends.
