Beautiful view, nice room, a perfect breakfast an - not at least - very friendly people. From Simonstown you can easy drive to Cape Hope, Table Mountain and Waterside, so it is perfect to stay 3 or 4 days.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Home from home with a great friendly welcome and amazing hospitality. Room was spacious and very comfortable with stunning views. A well stocked fridge with well deserved and reasonable beer. Breakfast was lovingly prepared and very filling.

The guesthouse is equipped with very nice kinds of art and the advising for activities was very professionally. Specific breakfast with high quality. Familiar but not intrusive. A special place to feel well.

Talk about a home away from home. Our hosts couldn't have been more hospitable and accommodating. They are also very knowledgeable about the area and its people. Moonglow is ideally situated on the side of a hill overlooking the bay affording spectacular views and there are plenty of fantastic restaurants within easy reach. A great spot to return home to...
