We stayed in Simonstown for 1 night during our mini vacation, the view was spectacular,service great and we will keep this guesthouse in mind if we need to book again in future. We might elect to stay 2 night next time!

We visited Aqua Terra in November 2013 and were blown away by everything - the beauty of the surroundings, view and facilities. Our only disappointment was that we could only stay one night! Our room was faultless and the bathroom, luxurious - what a view from the bath!! In the evening we sat in the sun room covered with blankets and looked out over False Bay - absolutely stunning! We also took the opportunity to use the 'honesty box' system for a bottle of wine. Very affordable and a great selection - a real treat! Breakfast the next morning was delicious and extremely well presented. The staff are friendly and it felt more like staying with friends rather than a B&B. Could not recommend Aqua Terra more highly!

Aqua Terra is as close to heaven on earth as you can get. I spent almost a week at Aqua Terra and enjoyed every minute of it. The view of the ocean is spectacular from every room and the house is beautiful, comfortable, and clean. The hospitality received is above and beyond, they go out of their way to make sure every guest is comfortable and taken care of. And you simply can not beat the value you get with Aqua Terra - spectacular ocean views, clean and spacious rooms, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, and they want to ensure that every guest is satisfied with their stay. All of that and close to many popular spots; including Boulder Beach (Penguin Beach), Cape of Good Hope, Simons Town, shopping, historical sights, and much more. I will most definitely be back and recommend Aqua Terra to everyone, it simply doesn't get any better than Aqua Terra.

After a looong week we decided to get away from the hustle of the city, as we came to Aqua Terra we where welcomed with a warm smile and a open door. I could feel my worries melting away as I walked into the luxurious common area and by the time I saw the view (2 steps further into the house) I was in a different world. Aqua Terra is by far one of the best places I have stayed in. There was comfy beds, great (clean!) facilities and always someone to help with either a supper suggestion or an activity for the day. I will defiantly be going back and I think it will be sooner rather than later.

What a fantastic weekend away. On arrival we were welcomed by the owner Jenny who came across as a warm, friendly person, inviting us into her home rather then a business. We were shown to our room with a panaromic view of the ocean. Fluffy carpets, stone fire place and beautiful decor with a on suite bathroom that's bath was the size of a small pool. After settling in we lazed about on sun lounges next to an infinity pool over looking false bay. A short stroll down is Simons Town and Boulders Beach where we saw penguins. Our every whim was taken care of immediately with a smile. Breakfast was served in the dining room while we watched the sun rise. Although we had access to the on site gym we felt so relaxed we couldn't work up the energy to use it. Aqua Terra is rated 5 star - I'm my opinion that's not enough! Pure luxury. Thank you for making our 5 year anniversary unforgettable. We will be back, time and time again.
