The location was fantastic. Aqua Terra Boutique Guesthouse is up a steep hill that's slightly tricky to drive, but the views make it totally worth it. Its within a gated compound, so its totally secure. Garth and Natalie are the most amazing hosts. Lovely conversationalists and happy to help with recommendations and so many other things. Staying here at Aqua Terra Guest House, felt like we were staying with friends rather than just a B&B. The view! Oh my God, what can I say about it? It has to be seen to be experienced, photographs can't capture the magnificence. They have a lovely sit out area near the pool if its too chilly to get in the water itself. We had the most amazing hot breakfasts here with everything cooked to order. Our car was absolutely caked with mud, since we had driven through Knysna forest in the rain before arriving at Simons Town. We had planned to get it professionally washed in town, but when we returned in the morning for breakfast after a morning beach trip, a member of staff actually carried multiple buckets of water up flights of stairs and cleaned our mud encrusted car and had it shining almost like new! That was above and beyond any expectations we have ever had of any B&B. Garth & Natalie, you and your staff have set the bar so high, no other place is ever going to come close enough to match it. We absolutely loved spending a couple of days in Simons Town, we got to reach the penguins way before the tourist buses from Cape Town arrived and so we were able to spend hours with the penguins with no one else around and actually just observe their natural behaviour without any other distractions. Zora their dog is a darling. She is an outdoor dog, extremely well behaved who can be gentle as a butterfly, but can also be the fiercest watchdog ever!

Hosts Garth, Nathalie and Peter have given new meaning to the word hospitality. Tucked high up above the shore - the luxurious Aqua Terra - exceeded our wildest expectations in every respect. From the super comfortable room with jaw-dropping views over False Bay and the dreamy mountains beyond, the expansive and wonderfully welcoming lounge and terrace - to the personally prepared, delicious breakfasts - it was simply sublime. Loved every minute of our stay.
