This place was absolutely amazing. I initially only planned on staying a couple of nights but after my first night I decided to just stay here for the duration of my time in Simon's Town. The rooms are very clean, spacious and quiet. The view overlooking False Bay is stunning. Rika and Amanda could not have been friendlier or more... More

Such a beautiful home with amazing views of the ocean. Our room exceeded our expectations and included a delicious hot breakfast. It's also close to the penguins at Boulders Beach and easy drive to the Cape of Good Hope.

This B&B has more than you would ever expect as a seasoned traveler. The guest rooms were new with upscale and comfortable furnishings include flat screen TV, stocked mini bar and even in-room coffee maker.

The property is gorgeous, the rooms are large, well appointed and spacious and the view...is well, a Million Dollar view (USD)! But that's not the best part. Your host Amanda is absolutely charming. Her gracious hospitality and Australia-South African charm makes the entire experience from check-in to check-out truly a pleasure.
