We stayed in the studio apartment as we had our son with us and it made more sense as there was more room. This meant that we had to go up to the main house each morning for breakfast and as it's up a very steep hill it's quite challenging. We had no wifi in the apartment, only in the... More

The house was beautiful, the rooms very clean and more than adequate....the rules a little too strict and not politely enforced! Close to restaurants in Hout Bay, but the walk back was challenging as all uphill, certainly walked off your dinner by the time you got back to your room! Finally.....too many leaves and stuff on the breakfast plates and... More

Froggs Leap is a special find in a market awash with B&B's. We love the stylishly laid back feel & decor, spacious bedroom suites with dressing room, bath, shower & kitchenette, and a private patio with harbour views. The owners are extremely accommodating and generous, offering 5 star standards at an incredibly reasonable price. The breakfasts are deliciously memorable, with... More

A rush of blood to the head led me to look to staying in Hout Bay for 1 night while on a business trip to Cape Town. I usually stay in the CBD or southern suburbs for convenience. A beautiful "plantation" house reveals a unique, comfortable, relaxing B&B. B&B seems far too 'down-home' to describe Frogge"s Leap though. I stayed... More

With taste decorated hillside house with large veranda, where a superb breakfast is served. Comfortable bedrooms (the best mattresses we experienced during our trip) with well functioning bathrooms. Beautiful view over Houtbaai. Good located for trips to the Waterfront, Cape Town or Kalk Baai. Nice hosts, that give you all the help and information necessary

I have stayed here whilst on business/ downtime three times in the last two years. The owners Stewart and Joke cannot be more welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms are well decoratd and equipped, extremely clean and some have great views of Hout Bay. The breakfasts are legendary and the staff are also great.

Spent a long-weekend in Hout Bay and stayed at Froggs Leap. It had everything we needed and then some. Perfect hosts who made us feel very at home and their two lady staff were happy and helpful, as well as efficient. Accommodation was excellent and the breakfasts exceptional. We will return!
