We had an amazing time. Would love to stay there again for our next visit to Cape Town.

Tranquil home away from home. Just what we needed ! A beautiful place to wind down from the busy CBD. The cottage is amazing! Very neat, clean and modern. Waking up to birds chirping in the morning was wonderful. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast braai on the patio surrounded by nature. The Cottage is perfectly located close to shops and we also had a chance to enjoy the World of Birds just a minute away. Thank you to Richard (the owner) and his family for a wonderful time and for making our stay pleasant – you have been a great host. We will definitely visit again!

I would highly recommend above mentioned cottage to anyone looking for a mini break/get away. From our arrival time we were warmly welcomed by Richard, who took us through the well equipped modern cottage.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mountain Rise and will be back soon soon. I was blown away with the neatness and cleanliness of the cottage itself. The view is spectacular, surrounded by Mother Nature.
Furthermore I can say Mountain Rise is the place to be.

Mountain Rise is perfectly located, for sight seeing, with automated access control to the property.
Very cosy family apartment with all the facilities for a good stay.
My family of 5 stayed for 5 nights and we were happy with this accommodation.
I had no problems contacting the property owner.

We couldn’t be much happier with our honeymoon accommodation. Would definitely book again 🙂 great service.
Claudia Page – March 2017

Our 3rd visit to this property confirms our opinion that it is a spacious, comfortable cottage in a beautiful garden setting with excellent sea views. Situated in a safe and secure area but convenient for all Hout Bay restaurants and shopping ideal for touring the Cape Peninsula and Winelands
The owner lives on site and is always available should there be any problems. The large swimming pool is a bonus on hot sunny days.
John Atkinson – January 2017

Mountain Rise was a home away from home, rooms were clean with excellent service and facilities. Above all the owners were very friendly and hospitable with a spirit of Ubuntu. Thank you. We would not hesitate to recommend the establishment to our friends and relatives.

Our Holiday at Mountain Rise Cottage was superb. We enjoyed every moment of it. The hospitality of the host and the family and their workers is very good. The house, omw is Beautiful and clean. The porch is a nice place for breakfast in the morning and to relax at night after a nice swim. The pool is awesome and so is the view from the porch. If you need a home away from home in a nice and relaxed environment then Mountain Rise Cottage is the place to be. I will definitely recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to spoil themselves in style and we will definitely be returning there again next year. Thank you to Richard H and his family for a nice holiday.

Staying at Mountain Rise was one of the best experiences. Friendly, considerate hosts have made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We would recommend the establishment to all our family and friends
Vassili Popov – September 2016

The cottage is in an up market area of Hout Bay which is secluded and peaceful. The accommodation is very large, it is serviced three times a week and is kept spotless. The large patio offers fantastic views down through the valley to the bay which is surrounded by stunning mountains. Breakfast and evenings on the patio are simply wonderful when sharing a chilled bottle of wine. The whole property is secure and safe and offers a very relaxing atmosphere. The hosts are extremely friendly and their recommendations are very welcome. We are looking forward to returning for another wonderful holiday experience

This was an anniversary surprise for my husband and WOW, what a beautiful, clean upmarket place! I fell in love with Mountain Rise. You can feel and see the effort and care to detail that went into designing the place. The service we received was outstanding and warm. I would recommend Mountain Rise to any one that needs a peaceful, upmarket and gorgeous view.
Vinelene Hartley – 10 August 2015

The place is very nice and the hosts were very kind and accommodative. I will definitely recommend to my friends visiting Cape Town.
Sipho Shongwe – August 2015

Extremely comfortable, spacious, accommodation. Suitable for both long or short stays. Great outdoor eating and sitting area in a beautiful garden setting with a view of the bay. Situated in a prime residential area with secure parking.
We enjoyed a 7 week stay in this delightful “home from home”. Looking forward to a return visit next year.
John & Doreen (UK) – 8 March 2015

This was such a refreshing, relaxing holiday. I returned to a hectic week feeling calm and collected. I would definitely recommend Mountain Rise as it is the ideal place to unwind and find yourself again.
Nadine Krotz – March 2015

Our stay was wonderful. Richard was most helpful and friendly and the accommodation was top notch. The pictures online were accurate. We enjoyed sitting on the back patio furniture and enjoying the mountains and distant view of bay. It was quiet and peaceful.
Nancy Baudendistel – 2 September 2014

Awesome place to discover Cape Town and surroundings. Clean and big. Owner is a great help as well – if we needed anything, one phone call and he was there. I would gladly recommend this to everyone who wants to spend time in a quiet area away from hassles of the big city.
Kristof Longueville – July 2014

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your cottage and it contributed to another lovely family holiday in South Africa.
Rob Walker – 23rd April 2014

We had a fantastic stay at mountain rise, highly recommend it, will definitely make use of it every time we visit Hout Bay. Everything was super clean and neat and the cottage had a beautiful view! Also big thanks to the owner, Richard, who was always happy to assist whenever we needed anything.
Hennie & Hannelie Diedericks – 26th March 2014

We very much enjoyed our three week stay in this nicely appointed and comfortable cottage, with the stunning views of Chapman’s Peak and Hout Bay from the terrace. So easy to get down to the water front, where there are restaurants and shops, and only half an hour’s drive into Cape Town itself.
Mr. J Targett – 20th February 2014

Mountain Rise is a spacious, clean and tidy fully equipped cottage with modern finishes. It is well located and offers a nice view of Hout Bay. Safe walking routes nearby. Quiet, peaceful accommodation with easy access to all attractions in the area!
Annerine Riga – January 2014

Wonderlik mooi rustig
Was lekker. Dis in ‘n mooi area en sal weer daar gaan bly want dit was die geld werd. Dankie dit was lekker.
Pieter Kotze -May 2013

This venue is absolutely fabulous. Very clean and up market with everything you would have in your own home provided for. It was delightful to come home to, after a day’s sightseeing around the Cape and to sit on the patio having sundowners with a view of Hout Bay in the background. The owner Richard Hutton is very friendly and helpful with his local knowledge.
Martin Askew -15th April 2013

I found Mountain Rise to be suitable for family, friends & couple looking for a peaceful holiday in Cape Town.

Many thanks to you all
Adele Lyons -12th March 2013

Stayed at Mountain Rise Hout Bay for 10 days just 2 weeks ago. What a treat! Beautifully fitted (luxury kitchen and bathroom, nice dining room, huge TV, super beds), wonderful sea and mountain views (with lovely breeze in the afternoons), secure without being daunting and good for PC/IT users who need to keep in touch with friends or work. Hout Bay without doubt the most delightful place to stay in Cape Town. Even better were our wonderful hosts and family who made us so welcome. Could not fault a single thing. Very highly and genuinely recommended.
Hatti Lee, England -4th February 2013

Mountain Rise is a well furnished unit in a quiet part of Hout Bay. Will recommend it and will make use of it again.
Abrie Smith, South Africa -7th January 2013
