We stayed only one night and the weather was awful but the very warm welcome, help with directions and ideas for a rainy day and wonderful breakfast made it an excellent stay. Very comfortable room with fun decor and excellent views from big windows.

Our room was beautiful and had everything we could need, with a view of the sea. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very welcoming. Perfect place to stay to break up the journey and enjoy the scenery

The room was situated with a great view of the ocean. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. We were just down the road from the African penguins. The owner and the staff were very friendly and helpful in all respects.

Enjoyed an incredible stay at the Simonstown guesthouse where we were welcomed by the lovely owners Steve and Amanda.. The rooms were immaculate, the views in the morning watching the sunrise over the false bay coastline, magical. A stroll down the beach is a must ..but after eating their delicious breakfast be warned you might be rolling down the hill!!

This was the second time we stayed here. Everything was great, like last time. Thanks Steve and Amanda -- we had a superb stay. The additional parking you've added makes life much easier for all your guests.

We recently spent a weekend at the simonstown guesthouse for a wedding in Kalk Bay. The location and sweeping ocean views across false bay are superb, the staff were friendly and attentive, and our Sunday morning breakfast was absolutely delicious. We recommend this guesthouse as the perfect spot from which to explore the southern peninsula.

Very comfortable rooms and great staff. It is quite a steep ride to the property. Location is actually north of simon's town but close to good restaurants and sites. Rooms are large except the bathrooms which are small. I would recommend if in the area. Breakfast was very good as well.

We were happily surprised with the Guesthouse. Beautiful designed rooms. Spectacular views, especially from room no. 5 (corner room). The personal touch of the staff and owner Amanda made us to extend our stay for another day. A place to remember and to come back to.
