Of all the places I have stayed across the World (and there have been a lot!) I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere as special as this. It is a glass eyrie perched on the side of a mountain with THE most spectacular views over False Bay. The accommodation is sumptuous and you feel a million dollars staying here. We stayed in Sunrise (the suite) and, if I lived to be 100, I would never tire of the views from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom and bathroom. The bed was super-comfortable too ensuring an excellent night's sleep. We went sailing out of Simons Town, horse riding on Noordhoek beach and swimming with penguins at Boulders beach and rounded each day off with dinner at the excellent Boulders Beach Lodge restaurant, which is only about a mike away from Aqua Terra. A perfect start to our holiday and hard to live up to.
Jenny and Dirk are gracious and welcoming hosts and truly go out of their way to make your stay special. Bulla the dog and Tygi the cat will also welcome you (but only if you ask them too - they are very well behaved).
Aqua Terra is a great base for exploring the Cape Peninsula - don't make the mistake of only staying for one night! We stayed for three and I could happily have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!
