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.

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.

Superb Watercolours
Watercolours is outstanding. The position, decor, spacious spotless rooms, pool, breakfasts and above all the wonderful Sharon to welcome and who goes to endless trouble to advise on restaurants, places to visit and provides maps. We rated Watercolours by far the best B and B we stayed in during our holiday.
