An amazing spot. We were met by the manager who was was very helpful explaining what was what. Good security. Well kitted out for everything you need. Climbing on rocks of the foreshore was great for children and adults. Lots of beach toys in the laundry room. Towels for the beach as well as inside. Amazing to walk to Boulders...

Management response:

Thank you Keri. It was lovely to meet you and your two adorable daughters. I hope we'll meet again. The penguin and dassie populations have taken a dive lately due to caracals that were praying on them. Two were caught by the municipality at The Milestone and have been relocated to Hout Bay. So, hopefully the penguin numbers will now...

This picturesque house offers all that you need for seaside relaxation. The coast is beautiful, and when I visited I even spotted a whale as it appeared briefly. You can grill in the barbecue station that they have, and enjoy watching the horizon. Be aware; it is incredibly windy. It is open to the ocean, after all.

This is a beautiful and almost secret place only about 2km west of Simons Town, with its own garden reaching down to the sea; its location makes it convenient not only for visiting central Cape Town via the most scenic routes, eg Chapman's Peak Drive or the M3 through the best suburbs, but enables you to visit the wine areas...
