This was a beautiful property with stunning ocean views! Frank and Sharon were lovely and very helpful. The location was great; we only wish we could have stayed longer😊

Beautiful location
Property is beautiful and right by the bay - a bit of a hike from the penguins and Simon’s Town, but definitely walkable. All of the staff is very friendly and gave us great advice on things to do. The breakfast is fantastic!

Lovely seaside B&B
Excellent B&B along the coast road at the end of Simons Town. It’s just across the road from the ocean, so that’s good at night when there is almost no traffic on the road, but a bit load during the day when lots of cars and tour buses pass by on the way to Cape Point. Lovely gardens, common space and a nice, but small, pool. Would definetly stay here again if I find myself in the Cape Town area.

The Property was beautiful. The bedrooms and shared areas were spotlessly clean and very well appointed, with excellent views across the bay.

Highly recommended
Beautiful views and Sharon was a wonderful host. She was always on hand to offer suggestions and advice, made a lovely breakfast every morning (the freshly made blueberry muffins were divine) and made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean and had a stunning ocean view. It was also conveniently located close to Boulders beach, Cape Point and Simon's Town. We would highly recommend this wonderful guest house.

Beautiful guesthouse just outside of Simonstown
This guesthouse was our last stop before heading back home. We were the only guests staying that night and it was a stay to remember. The house is absolutely gorgeous and feels very homely and personal. The room was very spacious with a very large bathroom and a great rain shower. The whole house is beautifully furnished and maintained and the decoration is following the theme of "Watercolours". The view is straight onto the ocean where you can see the sun rise in the morning. Sharon, the host greeted us in the morning with a huge breakfast buffet (fruit salad, toast, granola, avocado, cheeses, nuts, quiches, croissant, jam, honey, juice, tea, coffee,....) and she was great to talk to and told us about the history of the house. The guesthouse is only a short drive from the center of Simonstown and close to Cape of Good Hope. Secure parking is available and wifi connection is good. Bed is very comfortable and a big fridge is in the room. Definitely a place that I can highly recommend.

Perfect getaway
Perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. Pool literally overlooks the ocean and is the perfect place to unwind. Beautiful room with everything you need and again a view right over the ocean. Sharon is so welcoming and serves up the most delicious breakfast.

Sharon plus Watercolors equal stupendous
A true Privilege to experience SHaron’s hospitality combined with Gary's taste in design and furnishings. A convivial gourmet breakfast with other guests topped it all off. Quite amazing, actually to have had this privilege.
