A father is facing murder charges after the mother of their children, 3-year-old twins, discovered them dead in his holiday home in Hout Bay on Thursday, police have confirmed.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut said the father, 48, had then fled in her car.

He was later arrested in Wynberg.

"The circumstances surrounding the death of three-year-old twins, a boy and a girl, are being investigated after their bodies were discovered by their mother at the holiday residence of their father in Princess Road, Hout Bay," Traut said.

"The exact cause of their death is yet to be determined."

He said the father was expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court soon on two murder charges, and one of theft of a motor vehicle.
