What a lovely over night stay at The Boat House! So comfortable, elegant, home away from home. Friendly service, lovely breakfast and Exquisite views of Simonstown harbour and the ocean. We felt as if we were on a luxurous cruise liner. Lovely little touches - lavender flowers, chocolates, water in the fridge. Attention to small detail. We hope to be back.

Amanda and Walter were fantastic hosts, the breakfast was really good. Our room was perfect! Quite private with the balcony. I will definitely be coming back to A Boathouse. Great location and the sea view was an added bonus

We stayed at this very interesting and unusual B&B after being recommended by a friend who lives locally. The view from our bedroom,and where we ate breakfast were amazing and the food was very satisfying and varied.

The views from A Boat House over Simobstown and all of False Bay are breath-taking. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The friendly hosts, Amanda and Walter, couldn't do enough for us, we were so spoilt. Our vegan diet was well catered for at breakfast and my friend was allowed to conduct her online yoga class from the swimming pool area. We will definitely be back and I've recommended to friends.
