If you are looking for a calm place with gorgeous ocean view and friendly staff, Aqua Terra is the place to go.

If I didn't rely so much on Tripadvisor to find the very best places to stay I would be tempted to keep this little gem of a place all to myself! Fantastic location - really close to historic Simonstown but just far enough away to have total peace & quiet. Not only are you really close to the penguins of... More

There's not much more to say that haven't already been said in terms of the exceptional building with its stunning views. The driveway into the gated community is unusually steep, so if you come in a manual shift rental car, make sure you know how to start on a hill. Unfortunately the wifi signal is not available in the bedrooms.... More

We stayed at Aqua Terra from the 7th-14th of November 2014, prior to our wedding which was also in the Simons Town area. When we booked our room, it was the last one left and I was a little worried we had got the 'not so nice room'...well I was very pleasantly surprised, our room was stunning (all the rooms... More

The house is awesome, architecturally creative and beautiful, and the interior design is stunning. It is sheer luxury at an affordable price. The views over the bay are stunning. Our host, Sandra, was extraordinarily attentive to guests' needs and we felt really welcome. If we hadn't already booked our next night's accommodation, we would have stayed on.

The host lady was very friendly and kind to us. Living room was gorgeous and view form room was excellent. We would like to come back again and stay longer. Getting into a gate was a little challenge that it would be nice if there is a bigger signboard.

Breathtaking view, friendly host and owner who takes the time for discussions and good recommendations. Book the suite, it is worth it! I would book this B&B again, one of the best we've ever seen....
