Comfortable, Clean & Quiet
We had lovely service and had two interconnecting enjoyed-suite rooms (which was perfect for two friends travelling together), one of which enjoyed the great views over False Bay. Lovely breakfast with the same views.The only disadvantage of the views from the elevated position is the walk back uphill from one of the handful of good restaurants in Simon’s Town (which doesn’t seem to have a taxi service!).

Give me Simon's Town A N Y day!
Did my research and wow did it pay off. Mariner Guesthouse is all that you read. Comfortable, welcoming, safe, clean with world class views. Several minutes from Boulders Beach and the endemic African Penguins. An hour(ish) to Cape of Good Hope with more spectacular beauty. Got the luxury room with kitchenette and patio. Decided this was no time to bail on Capetown. Their water issue could be mine. I wanted to support the local businesses, to keep minimal footprint, and live life to the fullest while there. We decided that we could make "the water thing" work- that it was no reason to skip South Africa or the area. Trust me, NOTHING stopped us. The beauty was overwhelming and the only drawback for us was 2 pms was not enough time in Simon's Town nor at the Mariner Guesthouse. I was stunned to take a "bucket shower" and feel that my hair had simply never felt softer. NEVER! Go figure. Breakfast was AMAZING. With a pitcher of water on the buffet, may I add. Lavender flowerettes (one of many thoughtful touches) garnished the daily hot dishes (your choice among 4). Lots of fresh fruits, cereals, yogurts, pastries, breads. Yummy. Manager Daleen answered every possible question. My husband lost his fancy-dancy android phone - they found it and put it in a safe. Nightmare averted! Don't let the lack of water be a reason to skip this area now. Support them- you will learn more about their country as well as broaden your flexibility- always a good trait for the world traveler!

Fabulous Stay
Guest house was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was amazing and the service provided first class. Great location for seeing the penguins at Boulders Bay and for exploring the Cape. Would highly recommend.
