We had a wonderful stay at the Mountain house. Carin was very helpful with check in and getting us settled. The home has incredible views out of every window! Definitely a lovely home!

Carin and Miles were lovely hosts, extremely friendly and helpful on suggestions about local activities and restaurants. The mountain house is really a great choice for a unique and peaceful experience.

My wife and I honeymooned in Cape Town recently. We booked Carin's place for our final few days, to unwind after being in and around the city for most of our stay. It was a very good call. We actually wish that we had stayed here longer, but unfortunately we had to head home. The place was clean. The layout of the mountain house was gorgeous. It was a great spot from which to explore the beaches on the southside. We would definitely stay here again.

The mountain house is truly a gem! The minute you arrive, the views are breathtaking, the home is immaculate (from the decor, panoramic view of the bay and the mountains) and Carin was an absolute delight. If you are looking for a modern, ideal location while in Cape Town, I would not hesitate to book this gorgeous home. We will visit again :)

What a beautiful stay! We loved Carin and Mile's Mountain House - just what we needed after the busyness of Cape Town. The views are stunning and I loved waking up every morning on their porch. Highly recommend!

Carin and her husband were both fantastic. They were very quickly responsive to all questions prior to our arrival and were flexible when it turned out we'd be arriving later than anticipated the first day. We had some difficulty with wifi access and they were always fast to respond to reboot the router from their home next door which resolved the issue each time. The issue I suspect had to do more with the load shedding that was going on (there is a bit of an electricity shortage country wide) and not with their equipment which worked great once we got connected each time. The house was LOVELY and perfect for a couple. Great location and beautiful home.

I live in the most beautiful part of Cape Town. Having used airbnb to select accommodation for myself on travels we've decided we should also offer our accommodation on this website.
