We spent a night here in Unit B, for six people. A beautiful location, yes, although the unit had no view. Spotlessly clean, yes, though not in the best state of repair. However, for a self catering place it is hopelessly underequipped. A one cup plunger fir six people? Scant serving dishes? No barbecue equipment (very strange for South Africa)?... More

I loved this spot..Will definitely recommend and be back. I found Bosky Dell to be a great self catering option if you're wanting to explore Cape Town's Southern peninsula or just wanting time out in a beautiful place. It's just outside of Simonstown and beyond the railway line so you'll need a car. It's more about position than boutique accomodation.... More

My husband and I rented the main house so that we were in walking distance of our wedding ceremony (Windmill Beach) and reception (Blue Horizon). Well what a great choice we made! Ros and her team at Bosky were nothing short of delightfully warm and accommodating. The house was HUGE and so quaint our relatives were blown away by its... More

We stayed at Bosky Dell for 5 nights, including New Year's Eve, 2013. There were 8 of us in all -- a family of 4 in Cottage B, a couple in Coach House, and my husband I in the Stables. The location is outstanding! Yes, it is basic, but it is clean and harkens back to a simpler time. I... More

Bosky Dell needs to be added to Trip Advisor's Hidden Gem list! What a fabulous place in one of the most beautiful parts of the Cape Peninsula. For those of us who can't afford to have our own holiday house there, it offers a lovely taste of what it would be like..... As mentioned in previous reviews, it's not fancy... More

This cluster of self catering accommodation is located in a wonderful position overlooking Boulders Beach, about 45 mins drive south of Cape Town. We based ourselves at Bosky Dell for six nights and wished we'd stayed longer. It was a great location for exploring the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and the fabulous beaches along the Atlantic Coast such... More

This is an amazing house in Simonstown. Closer to Boulders you will not get! A wonderful old house with an amazing front stoep and views to lap up! We were 11 and took the main house and the coach house, as the upstairs of the main house was booked. The Coach House has it's own little front stoep and the... More

We recently stayed at Bosky Dell which has the most unbelievable views over boulders beach and beyond. and relaxed atmosphere. It would make an ideal wedding venue with just a few tweaks. The staff and managers Elsa and Rosa do their utmost to help and are very informative as regards places to visit etc. The accomodation is quite basic and... More

The location of this self catering cluster of cottages is excellent. We were a family of 4 and hired Cottage A which was behind the main house the rooms were OK and the bathroom was OK, they shouldn't bother with the shower on the wall, almost impossible to use! The fridge and kitchen is hopelessly too small and under equipped... More

Not a hotel, but a collection of self-catering houses, almost right on Boulders Beach, Simonstown. Absolutely amazing location, we stayed in the Main House which sleeps six. It's quite basic but charming. Big enclosed garden with some resident penguins! Direct access to beach. Amazing views from verandah, excellent spot to sit with a glass of wine! Just around corner from... More
