Aqua Terra is as close to heaven on earth as you can get. I spent almost a week at Aqua Terra and enjoyed every minute of it. The view of the ocean is spectacular from every room and the house is beautiful, comfortable, and clean. The hospitality received is above and beyond, they go out of their way to make... More

After a looong week we decided to get away from the hustle of the city, as we came to Aqua Terra we where welcomed with a warm smile and a open door. I could feel my worries melting away as I walked into the luxurious common area and by the time I saw the view (2 steps further into the... More

What a fantastic weekend away. On arrival we were welcomed by the owner Jenny who came across as a warm, friendly person, inviting us into her home rather then a business. We were shown to our room with a panaromic view of the ocean. Fluffy carpets, stone fire place and beautiful decor with a on suite bathroom that's bath was... More

We stayed at Aqua Terra for just one night and wish we could have been there longer. The views are stunning, as is the design of the house. Everything is high quality and if you stay, go for the Executive suite, as it is fabulous. The host couldn't do even to help and her clear aim is to ensure your... More

On our arrival we were welcomed, if you could call it a welcome, by a very stern lady who quickly handed us over to a another working lady who who showed us our room and where the fridge was in the lounge. That was it apart from saying breakfast was between seven and nine and what time did we want... More

I knew the road up to the B&B would be steep from other tripadvisor reviews, but I didn't expect it to be THAT steep. Just beware, especially the first time because you'll have to stop at the gate and wait for someone to open it and you'll have to get back in the the car (which is in "P", stopped... More

The view was amazing as the lodge was located up on the side of the mountain overlooking the ocean. Everything was very clean, and perfect for our stay. we were happy to have the a/c unit in the room as it got a little muggy at night. We also enjoyed viewing the stars from the balcony. The location is just... More

Beautiful contemporary house and very comfortable. We stayed in the executive suite with glass from floor to ceiling on 2 of the walls, so the views out to sea were stunning. Not much to dislike really although breakfasts were fairly basic compared to all the other places we stayed and it would have been nice to have had a fridge... More

My girl and me stayed there unfortunately only for a single night. The quality of the house itself is remarkable and everything is in top conditions. Someone said that the place is "sterile" which is partly true since the owner lives abroad and his mother life's there by herself with the staff and max. 3 guests. It seems to be... More

Beautiful views, lovely quiet location. Close to boulder bay, but a bit out the way from SImonsTown centre if you dont have a car. Bathroom not en suite- which is a bit weird walking to your room in your towel. Otherwise comfy, stylish and affordable!
