    We loved our stay at your beautiful guest house in Simon's Town with a spectacular view overlooking the Bay. It was so charming & comfortable. As bird watchers, your gardens were such a treat - we could birdwatch from the balcony. The location was perfect.

    One of the very best views in Simonstown, great and varied bird life and loved the visiting porcupine every evening. Very unobtrusive but helpful and friendly hosts. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
