Great place to stay especially for visits to boulders beach, cape point, and Chapman’s peak drive. Hosts were extremely helpful and rooms were very well furnished. Highly recommend this accommodation.

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.
