Nestled into a mountainside about 10 miles south of Cape Town, South Africa, Hout Bay's extravagant Spa House sits overlooking the calming waters of the village's surrounding bay and harbor. Its panoramic spans of windows, soft rippling pool waters where most of us have front yards, brightly spacious contemporary design, and private spa facilities have earned the house official accolades for its architecture, incorporation into the environment, and tranquility. The vision for the Spa House vision belongs to Cape Town's Metropolis Design. It is available for rent to anyone seeking a getaway that is stylish, ultra high class, and the embodiment of serenity.

The Spa House Amenities

Metropolis Design fashioned their Hout Bay stunner with 3 king-sized bedrooms and lavish en suite glass baths. Both interior and exterior living spaces, plus the massive infinity pool, invite expansive, unobstructed views of the encircling mountains and water. But the villa's most exclusive highlights lie in its spa installations.

Guests can unwind their minds in the salt bath, sauna, and steam room, and unfurl their muscles in the fully-equipped massage room. Spa facilities are built on the ground level, in line with the infinity pool to elicit a peaceful, underwater feeling while in use.

Hout Bay

Take a holiday from your holiday with an easy drive along an Atlantic-facing coastal road from Cape Town to Hout Bay. Breathe in scenic vistas of the lazing waters, framed by green mountains and golden sand, and take enthralling to truly awe-inspiring with a jaunt along Chapman's Peak Drive, one of the most dramatic coastal drives in the world. Along Chapman's Peak also lie the quanity peninsular towns of Noordhoek and Kommetjie.

Hout Bay--called "Dungeons" by members of the surfing community--is one of the world's sixteen recognized big wave spots. It hosts the annual Red Bull Big Wave Africa competition, and rightfully so with recorded swells measuring up to 47 feet.

Hout Bay village houses a variety of restaurants and shops, and the nearby harbor offers additional view points, plus boat rides to Duiker Island, a tiny dot of land renowned for its birds and fur seals. In addition to surfing and boating, hiking is a popular outdoor activity, with numerous trails snaking in and around the lush mountain landscape.
