Declared a Republic by its loyal residents, one person even managed to travel half way round the world on a Hout Bay passport.
A horseshoe-curve of a bay framed by mountains, dominated by the imposing Sentinel, it has a family-friendly beach, its own marina and the bustling Mariner’s Wharf.
Seal Life

Seals abound, dolphins are often spotted and in winter breeding southern right whales have been known to come within spitting distance of the shoreline.

Plenty of hikes and climbs, and for the other kind of nature lover Sandy Bay – Cape Town’s official nudist beach – is just around the corner.
This tiny bay is a short drive away. West-facing and with a beautiful beach, its properties have become highly sought-after.

Nestled high up on the wooded southern slopes of Table Mountain, The Tarragon commands dramatic views over the Hout Bay valley.  With over 8000m2 of grounds, the overwhelming atmosphere is one of space, tranquillity and a certain aloofness from the rest of the world.

Five cottages have been created out of Cape sandstone, each one individually designed and furnished with top-of-the-range appliances and a sleek, modern style that belies the country setting.  With the possible exception of Thyme, which is right next to the pool, each of the cottages is very private, though some can be linked to accommodate larger groups.  Each has its own shady veranda, and with the many different terraces and lawns within the landscaped grounds every guest can escape entirely from the others.

Backing on to the property is part of the Table Mountain National Park, and there are numerous hiking trails within a stone’s throw.  Peacocks and butterflies and dragonflies highlight the remote setting, and yet the bustling city is just a twenty minute scenic drive away. 

Ideally situated to explore all the Cape Peninsula has to offer, The Tarragon is a fabulous base  for couples or family groups.
