We stayed in the Golf Suite which was comfortable and well-equipped and with some sea view ( the Honeymoon Suite above has the more spectacular views). Lovely hot shower and big comfy bed. Rudimentary cooking facilities (no oven) but fine for a weekend. The wifi is slow but adequate (I was able to watch bbc iplayer with a few brief glitches). It's a great location for sea walks and there are lots of penguins. Very accomodating owners. Delightful.

The host kept in contact via text messages throughout the stay and ensured that we had everything we needed. Guests have a great view over the golf course and beach from the room we stayed in. This property is just off the main road of Simon's Town, making it easy to get around. It's also walking distance from the penguin colony conservation area.
