“Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed June 11, 2011

A perfect gem of a guesthouse -combines the closeness and warmth of a family run business with everything that is hi tech ultra modern sophisticated and tasteful . The views are superb and as each bedroom has the delight of it's own sitting area over looking the bay it is easy to while away an relaxing afternoon with binoculars in one hand and a glass of wine in the other! An additional interest is the display of glorious wildlife photographs taken mostly by the Conradies themselves and as each 'picture tells a story' the couple are very pleased to tell you about the whys and wherefores of each one - heartwarming stories coupled with very informative information regarding African wildlife.Lastly the excellent breakfast must be mentioned - notably the omellettes - you certainly leave the guest house vowing not to eat for the rest of the day!
We plan to make another stop over as soon as we can as we certainly know something very very good when we see it!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent

Hi Amanda,

We loved staying at your lovely home. Great location, great views, very, very clean rooms which is #1 for me, really comfortable beds, great ocean views and fabulous breakfast on your outdoor patio. You are a lovely, attentive, helpful hostess. The perfect place to stay. And the Great White Shark cage dive (use Apex Predators as they do not chum or use shark livers and only 2 people in a cage at one time) and Boulder Beach were amazing.

Thank you for everything,
Linda and Tim, Santa Fe, NM, USA

Room Tip: Don't look at any more, just book!

If you want to spend some time in a new, modern, clean and comfortable environment quite close to Cape Town - get to Amanda´s new challenge hosting guests throughout the planet.

But what is very special ? Amanda spent a lot of time to talk with us of about Simonstown, SA and any insights of the local culture you would never get. Amanda takes care of everything you expect from a brilliant stay.

The location is very central (but takes approx. 30min to CapeTown City) and you will find some very nice places eating fish, drinking wine and enjoying the sun. Do you need more ?

Amanda. Thanks for your great relationship during our time.
See you definitely whenever we have the chance to get to this area again.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Simonstown Guest House. The room was fabulous and very comfortable. We had a nice view of the ocean. The owner of this B&B, Amanda, was friendly, gracious, and pleasant. She has done a wonderful job with this B&B. Breakfast was wonderful. The location is ideal for day trips on the Cape peninsula.
