Our modern and elegant Guest House is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of Cape Town: Hout Bay.

With a unique and quiet hillside location in an upmarket and sought-after neighbourhood, with stunning views of the mountains and ocean, you can take comfort in knowing you will have a beautiful and safe experience during your stay in our villa. And at our large pool you will find the serenity and relaxation you are longing for. Let us spoil you!


Each of our our five rooms is individual. They not only differ in size and shape, but they are also furnished to match their particular charm. Most of them provide beautiful views and an own terrace.

However, the room amenities are the same in all rooms, while Corner Suite, Cosmopolitan Suite and Comb View also provide air conditioning.

Your Hosts

Dirk Engelmann and Patrick Gott are your hosts at the CUBE Guest House:

“Before taking our Golden Retriever Paul and moving from Hamburg to Cape Town in 2011, we have fallen in love with South Africa on numerous vacation trips within the last years. By opening the CUBE Guest House, a dream has come true.”

In his “first” career, Dirk was working in the hotel sector and later as a marketing manager in the telecommuni- cation business. Patrick was a directing manager in the entertainment sector and raising experience in catering, event management and marketing.

During those times, both got passionate about good service and hospitality.

Guest Reviews from TripAdvisor

On our 2 week trip to SA I was most excited about staying at The Cube and we weren’t disappointed. The place is beautiful. Amazing design and lovely styling. Beautiful pool area and very spacious room (we stayed in the Cosmopolitan Suite) with double sinks and open bathroom where you can see the views from the shower (and loo!)
