“Magnificent Views!”
Reviewed 1 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We had a wonderful family holiday at The View in Simon'sTown. All of us were feeling wonderful and enjoyed the stunning view and the spacious house. The kids especially enjoyed the the pool. The house is equipped with all facilities one needs for a big family and holiday. Ian was was always available for any question. The View is a perfect spot for excursions around Cape Town. We are looking forward to be back next time staying in South Africa/ Cape Town.

“Spacious, comfortable, and the best view in Simon's Town!”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The View is close to Simon's Town which is the historic naval base near the Southern tip of the Cape Town peninsula, so it provides easy access to nearly 3 centuries of historic charm! Slightly further afield, but also nearby, can be found the scenic treasures of Cape Point and the beaches, shops, and restaurants of Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, St James, Muizenberg, Kommetjie, and Noordhoek. Of course it is also within easy driving distance of all the treasures of world famous Cape Town and Table Mountain!

But frankly you need never travel further than the front door of The View, and still enjoy a wonderfully restful holiday! Our family of 6 comfortably fit into it, while still providing complete privacy on a separate level for the master en-suite bedroom, and on another level two double rooms with their own bathroom. There are effectively two lounges AND a dining room, with separate balconies on every level giving access to the best view of False Bay in Simon's Town! Add to that a crystal clear pool, and your summers could not be better spent anywhere in South Africa!

Being so high up the hillside there is a steep road to negotiate, but we were able to walk down to the sea and reach the only African Penguin colony on the continent at Boulders Beach. With so much to see on the Peninsula I would recommend a hire car, but you can catch a train between Simon's Town and Cape Town, and the ubiquitous 'Uber' will get you anywhere else should you not have transport!

Highly recommended!

“Rooms with the view”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in April 2016

A wonderful house with great views over False Bay. Ian and Paula have created a home-away-from home feel in a beautiful location. Close enough to everything you need, but far away from the
maddening crowd. Enough space for a family with some friends. You will enjoy your stay here.

“The "View"”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We spent with our children (12,9) for about a week at this nice peaceful place. The view is spectacular, the location is perfect for day trips to all sightseeing places. The boulder's beach is practically below the house. The house itself is very spacious. We enjoyed this place and our holidays in Captown and surrounding and would come back at any time.
