"Very comfortable with everything you may need. Beautiful views. The kitchen area was very well-equipped. Lovely braai area at the back with a braai grid provided. Will definitely stay there again. Tanya was lovely and always available."  (Teresa V - visited March 2023)

"Blissful, tranquil stay, surrounded by nature. The perfect setting for a weekend away in Betty's Bay. Centrally located, so we could go out and explore during the day. Evenings were spent enjoying the lovely braai area, surrounded by nature and the sounds of the local wildlife."  (Candace L - visited February 2023)

"Superb."  (Samantha - visited February 2023)

"Exceptional. The host was spot-on. The house was well-equipped. The rooms and bathrooms were great. Spacious kitchen and living area. Great mountain view."  (Juan - visited January 2023)

"Good. Photo was deceiving. We were too close to the main road. I thought we would be isolated in a reserve. We did have a good weekend."  (Sharon E - visited December 2022)

"I have to say very beautiful and very nice, we as a family had enjoyed ourselves a lot. I wouldn't mind booking again, everything was just perfect, thanks again. If you are looking for a nice and cosy place to relax and enjoy with your family, Mountain Mist is the place to go."  (Esterlitte S - visited November 2022)

"Exceptional."  (Rosaline - visited November 2022)

"Superb. The place was great and good value for money and was very safe as well. No airconditioning or heater, only a very small one."  (Sibusiso - visited September 2022)

"Exceptional. The view of the oceans and mountains are amazing. The house is beautiful and comfortable."  (Henriette - visited August 2022)

"Very good. The fact that they do not mention the jacuzzi does not warm up when you're done booking, only once paid and confirmed you get an email from the host saying that it doesn't heat up and when you switch it on the power in the house trips."  (Naomi - visited June 2022)

"It's a lovely house with a lovely view in a beautiful part of the world, no complaints. We and our friends really enjoyed the stay. It is a beautiful house by anyone's standard, it sits on the lower slopes of an imposing mountain range, looking out over the ocean not that far away. We enjoyed the fireplace and the kitchen and the living area, which is quite cosy during the winter once you have a fire going. I liked that it's in a cul de sac where my boy could ride his bike, and I especially enjoyed it facing up to the abundant fynbos on most sides. No complaints from my side."  (Henk C - visited April 2022)

"Excellent stay, absolutely love Betty's Bay. Booking and administration with the webpage once again were easy and efficient. Mountain Mist was excellent value for money, and really well-equipped. The kids and the grandparents loved it tremendously and we would happily come back. A tip for guests, when checking in, go straight back around the house and access the premises via the kitchen, makes it quick and simple."  (Irfaan B - visited April 2022)

"Thank you for a wonderful winter's weekend away in this tranquil spot.  We were blessed with stunning weather, so got to explore the surrounding areas including Stoney Point and the Harold Porter Gardens.  The house itself is very spacious and comfortable with stunning views.  Thanks to the fireplace in the living area, we enjoyed cosy evenings watching movies with the kids.  We all had a great night's sleep with the added bonus of electric blankets on every bed.  We will be back hopefully in the Summer holidays - we want to try the "cold" jacuzzi... but definitely a win for the Winter periods too!  Till next time - stay safe."  (Kim S - visited July 2021)

"Mountain Escape.  Nice and spacious.  The views are amazing and we enjoyed the breakfast nook.  Made mornings so much more special.  Could have done with Wi-Fi."  (Zainuneesa J - visited July 2021) 

"Superb."  (Susan H - visited June 2021)

"We had an amazing visit to this beautiful and spacious house!  We spent most of our time in the large kitchen and outside area, the dishwasher makes cleaning up a breeze and the animal statuettes throughout the property make for great conversation.  Just be aware it gets cold in the evening, perfect for huddling around the braai area, just remember to bring enough warm clothes!  We also went to visit the penguins and dassies nearby, which was a nice little outing.  Overall amazing venue, area and experience.  5/5 would recommend!  (Camilla B - visited June 2021)

"Best value for money.  We had an amazing stay even with this cold weather, we kept the fireplace going, everything you need for your stay was provided, there was nothing short, thank you Mountain Mist, see you soon."  (Moegamat - visited May 2021)

"We really enjoyed being at Mountain Mist!  Proximity to Betty's Bay.  Beautiful views of sea and mountain behind the house.  Quiet location.  Equipment in the kitchen was good.  One bathroom shared between two bedrooms."  (Paul A - visited April 2021)

"Very good.  The house has a great view of Betty's Bay with stunning views of the mountain in your backyard.  Hosts were very friendly and helpful.  Will definitely recommend it."  (Tahir F - visited February 2021)

"Superb"  (Chaun C - visited October 2020)

"Amazing views, area and nature.  This was our second time at Mountain Mist.  It was too cold for the jacuzzi, but nice and warm weather.  Close to the mountain and other activities."  (Ria D - visited August 2020)

"Waking up to the beautiful mountains in your backyard and the ocean on your stoep - absolutely true bliss."  (Nadine S - visited August 2020)

"Mountain Mist sits on the slope of Kogelberg Mountain in the Kogelberg Nature Reserve with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.  All three spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds are facing the Atlantic.  There is a stone table on the mountainside of the house where one can have breakfast with the towering mountain as a backdrop and beautiful flora and fauna, not to mention the different species of fynbos.  Excellent value for money."  (Martin T - visited February 2020) 

"Very good."  (Eric v S - visited December 2019)

"Nice place, beautiful views."  (Erwin V - visited November 2018)

"The accommodation itself is highly recommended."  (Tracey B - visited February 2018)

"Top notch place!  Lovely view, a lot of extras.  Volledig toegeruste kombuis, baie goeie beddens, skoon badkamers."  (Tamaryn B - visited January 2018)

"Mountain Mist is a lovely spacious home with beautiful views.  The house is centrally located with easy access to shops and beaches.  We loved the tranquil setting at the foot of the mountain.  The enclosed courtyard is great for those windy days."  (Desiree S-L - visited December 2017)

"Mountain Mist is a beautiful, luxurious and peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.  It is situated high up in a surrounding expanse of lovely fynbos at the foot of the Kogelberg mountains.  A full-length patio at the front of the house lends itself to a lovely wide view of the ocean and the shoreline down below.  The en-suite bedrooms were a treat, with electric blankets welcome on the cold nights.  A roaring fireplace made the big front living room area a cosy and warm place to put your feet up and relax.  With the Harold Porter Gardens, the Penguin Colony, and the beach a stone's throw away, this is the place to come to, to have a good area with friends and/or family."  (Cheryl A - visited September 2017)

"A perfect venue for a family getaway!  There was a sense of hospitality right from the booking enquiry through to our return home when we were contacted to return something we had left behind.  Electric blankets on all beds and the use of a double garage for cars and bikes are some of the extraordinary features we enjoyed.  Besides the accommodation, the location and setting of Mountain Mist is perfect, even better than the pictures!  I would definitely recommend it for any family looking for a comfortable and affordable break from the hustle and bustle of city life."  (Michael R - visited July 2017)

"The place is beautiful and peaceful.  But summer would be a better time to go, as it would have more sun and you can use the cold-water jacuzzi as well.  It has the best views and I think it would have a better sunset in summer."  (Edwina L - visited July 2017)

"We very much enjoyed our stay in the house and will recommend it to friends and family.  The house was welcoming, clean, tidy and well-equipped right down to the little chocolate on the bed.  The linen and towels were clean and fresh.  The flowers and vegetation were attractive.  The owners were very responsive and well organised."  (Richard B - visited February 2017)

"The position of Mountain Mist, close to the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, makes it a unique destination in South Africa.  We were able to visit with family, and the outstanding feature for us was the fact that the layout of the house, together with multiple bathrooms, made it easy to have our own space as needed!  We loved it.  The facilities and presentation of the home were upmarket with fine sheets and linen.  There were several areas for communal eating, including one table literally in the fynbos.  It needs to be "discovered".  Overall, Mountain Mist was an ideal getaway for us to spend time with family in a luxurious setting and also have space for ourselves.  We had a wonderful time."  (Robert S - visited January 2017)

"We were visiting Cape Town from Australia, and planned a family reunion away from the business of Cape Town, and could not have found a nicer spot to be with family.  The house is absolutely lovely, and it was easy to both have our own space away from the more demanding young people, and time together in the various living areas.  One area, near the cold-water jacuzzi, is perfectly sheltered.  The hosts prepared the house in a most welcoming manner, and overall it was delightful to share some luxury with the family.  Many thanks, a very rejuvenating experience."  (Robert S - 2nd review - visited January 2017)

"The house is very well-equipped with quality linen and luxury equipment, including electric blankets!  Excellent attention to detail and very comfortable.  Will definitely be back."  (Fuad d V - visited October 2016)

"Quality bedding, very quiet neighbourhood, lots of space.  We immediately feel at home."  (Annatjie J - visited September 2016)

"House and its setting is beautiful - boasts magnificent views of the Kogelberg mountain behind and the ocean in front.  The outside barbeque area was not really inviting or homely like the rest of the place - quite overgrown with uneven paving - poses some difficulty for the disabled or elderly."  (Sue v K - visited September 2016)

"A very nice and well-equipped house away from home - from the cosy fireplace inside to the "chilled" outside braai area.  A must for those wanting to visit Betty's Bay."  (Matt H - visited May 2016)

"A fantastic place to unwind in the beautiful surroundings of Betty's Bay.  We sat on the balcony looking out and watching the world go by and feeling the body unwind.  Set against the mountain, the view out back makes you feel almost in the bush.  The rooms were great, the courtyard was cool under the tree next to the braai and the deck.  A great shade spot in the afternoons.  All-in-all a great weekend had by all, and we definitely would like to go back"  (Guy and Sharon M - visited February 2016)

"A breath of fresh air.  The scenery, close to all the necessary amenities."  (Kaylene v S - visited February 2016)

"A very pleasant time was had by all the family.  Plenty to do and lovely accommodation."  (Ross B - visited February 2016)

"We stayed at Mountain Mist in Betty's Bay, everything looked just as on the website, was even better.  The place was neat, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped and everything worked.  The area was peaceful and if possible we will definitely go again."  (Idette K - visited December 2015)

"We had the most wonderful time at Mountain Mist! The house is spacious and beautiful and the owners have thought of absolutely everything you could possibly need. Very sweet touches of chocolates on pillows make it even more special.  Easy walk to the beach even with the little ones."  (Colette N - visited January 2015)

"Peaceful and comfortable, highly recommended. We enjoyed the stay very much." (Ruth J - visited January 2015)

"I took two of my friends out here (with hubby and kids) for the weekend to celebrate their combined birthday. All in all, we had a great stay!! The house was really well organised with lots of notes and instructions left around so it was always easy to find switches etc. Also, the kitchen and all the rooms were really well-equipped and we didn't struggle at all, as one sometimes does when renting a house and then not having half of the utensils you need. The lounge/kitchen/entertainment area is nice and big so we had lots of space to hang out, even when it was raining outside. The layout of the rooms and bathrooms is great and so we didn't feel like we were living in each others space all the time. There is a shop and pub just down the road as well as being just a 5-minute drive to the beach and the penguin reserve (which the kids loved)." (Aimee B - visited November 2014)

"Mountain Mist is a beautiful place with tranquil surroundings.  The attention to detail is very apparent and makes the establishment and stay all that more wonderful. I would definitely recommend this getaway." (Michel-Leigh M - visited October 2014)

"I was really impressed with the house, it exceeded my expectations.  The house is beautiful and I will definitely be returning back soon for another weekend away." (Joy F - visited September 2014)

"Beautiful establishment with a lovely view. Everything was clean and it was well-equipped.  Ons het die plek as netjies en goed ingerig ervaar.  Daar is 'n mooi uitsig.  Ons het daar gebly tydens 'n groot storm, so het ongelukkig nie geleentheid gehad om die braai te gebruik nie.  Die kaggel werk egter baie goed!  Ons sal beslis weer wil gaan." (AnsonĂ© d T - visited July 2014)

"What a perfect getaway quiet for a family. A beautiful house nestled against the mountain with gorgeous views of the ocean. We encountered a family of mongoose who visited a few times, and were in awe of the beautiful birds around the house. The owners have gone out of their way to provide a comfortable and efficient home with every modern convenience in the kitchen. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a break away from the city." (Lindsey M - visited March 2014)

"Beautiful house, fantastic location, great facilities inside and outside!  Collecting the keys wasn't easy, jacuzzi was cold water only." (Anonymous - visited February 2014)

"Having stayed at numerous places all along the coast of the Eastern and Western Cape over the past 10 years, this has easily been the best accommodation we have had to date. If ever we should stay in Betty's Bay again, we would love to return to Mountain Mist. In particular, we found the house to be very well-equipped with quality furnishings and very neat and clean. In addition, the rooms are very spacious. I would definitely recommend Mountain Mist to anybody." (Jans S - visited January 2014)

"Mountain Mist was such a pleasant surprise for us: a spacious home at the foot of the Kogelberg mountain, with wilderness stretching from the back door, and an awesome view from the long front veranda. The spacious accommodation is superb and pristine, with every detail taken care of, blissfully comfortable beds with white linen... and a chocolate on each pillow!" (Fran P - visited January 2014)

"We really had a very wonderful stay at Mountain Mist over the long weekend. The view was stunning. Not only was the house spacious and clean with all the conveniences we needed for the weekend, the owner was very professional and friendly. The electric blankets really were a hit. We will definitely be returning." (Ilse B - visited August 2013)

"We were a group of guys on a weekend away from our wives, and we found Mountain Mist to be a great venue. The open-plan kitchen/lounge, where we spent most of our time, is spacious and bright, and the bedrooms are compact and neat. The entertainment area is very nice, and the jacuzzi is a nice touch, but unfortunately it is a cold-water-only jacuzzi, and the weather wasn't warm enough for us to be able to enjoy it. The house was equipped with everything that we needed, and it is close to the shops and about twenty minutes walk from the beach, so we lacked for nothing. I would definitely go back again." (Robbi S - visited June 2013)

"We had a fantastic family weekend away at Mountain Mist. There was plenty of space for the extended family, the house was clean and comfortable and the view was spectacular. We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy the outdoor braai area and jacuzzi." (Faye B - visited June 2013)

"Incredibly beautiful setting. Perfect for large or small groups. Great little retreat for winter and/or summer." (Taariq M - visited June 2013)

"Lovely, well-maintained family home. Three bedrooms en suite - two beds sharing one bathroom. Wonderful crisp white linen provided. A really relaxing place. Spacious living area and well-equipped kitchen. Wonderful sea and mountain views although a drive to the beach. Lovely mountain hikes starting in your backyard! A highlight was sitting in the jacuzzi looking at the mountain backdrop." (Neil S - visited January 2013)
