“Good place at a great price”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We needed a night stopover before Cape Point.. Seagetaway is probably one of the closest accommodation you can find ...
We were new to SA and I asked for directions for the way back to Cape Town airport...When we returned from dinner, we realized he had left a a map for us with the suggested route marked clearly with a highlighter...
It may have been Small gesture but I found it to be a very kind one!

We stayed here for 6 nights and found David very helpful. The accommodation was clean and well furnished and the views are amazing. The one drawback for the elderly were the steps.
We really enjoyed our stay and would return.

Seagetaway was our first stop when we arrived in Cape Town. David was very helpful during our stay (giving us a lift into town, since we didn't have a car and advising us on what we could do etc.) The apartment is a steep walk up for a few nice beaches on the coast, and there are a some nice restaurants in walking distance (if you don't mind a 20-40 min walk), or by car. We especially recommend The Black Marlin and the Just Sushi.

We thought the apartment was spacious for a couple, and had all the supplies you need, plus a lovely hammock where you can relax after your adventures.

Make sure to look for The Little Tibetan Tea House just before you get to Simonstown centre. Lots of lovely tea, decorations and organic supplies. Trips to other cities on the coast, such as Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg are also advisable for a day-trip, either by train or car.

Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay at Seagetaway:)

The place was great like having your own flat including lounge and great kitchen with a full floor to ceiling window for viewing the area whilst you are relaxing. The image with a fantastic view of the sea is exactly what it is like. It is a great base for visiting the whole of the cape. We did not use the pool or gym so are unable to comment,

Room Tip: Ground floor means you can easily open the door and walk out and easier for luggage.

This is an excellent location. I had the economical room which was great for one person. I stayed 20 nights till my apartment became available . Great location for exploring the cape, very close to Simonstown with some really nice restaurants. Very close to penguins, whales in season and occasional baboons. I had to stop my car at night to let a porcupine cross the road on way home .The host was very charming and helpful. Great also if you are a biker with lots of little roads with great views but they tend to have interesting hills to get there!!! This could be a separate and interesting holiday if you are coming to Capetown. Lots of walking , biking ,canoeing. Good location for active holiday

Room Tip: The other rooms have a great view where you can sit out and watch sun go down

a very beautiful stay! We wished to spend a few more nights. The view is overwhelming, the owner very helpful and kind, the pinguins a real delight. Seagetaway is definitely a place to recommend! We wish all the best, thanks for the good support and to everybody who goes there: have a wonderful time!
