dk villas

Founders of dk villas Johann and Petra de Kock are genuine power couples. It all started when Johann bought Petra a beach cottage as a surprise gift for their 9th wedding anniversary in the tranquil little fishing village of Dwarskersbos on the West Coast. Petra got stuck into adding personal touches and soon discovered a talent for interior design. And so dk villas was born. It was logical that the couple would feature Hout Bay in their luxury accommodation collection since they have lived in the “Republic” since 1999. “This quirky village is so close to the city that you feel like you are part of Cape Town, yet it maintains that village atmosphere.”  Choose from not one but two luxury accommodation options for families in Hout Bay.
