Historic apartment in central Simonstown
I seldom write on Tripadvisor, but seeing that this apartment only received one star long ago from a previous traveller, I thought it necessary to write. The hostess, Olivia, was helpful, friendly and usually responded within an hour or two. The apartment was clean and with three spacious bedrooms, an updated bathroom, oldish kitchen, lounge and dining room it suited a family weekend.. It is an historic apartment so even though steps were steep, parking was safe and we enjoyed the use of the courtyard after hours to have a barbecue. This apartment is very centrally located and an easy walk to Penguins and all sights in Simons Town.

Rather take your business elsewhere
After much research we decided to book a weekend stay at this establishment. It appeared to be pet friendly, but I wrote to ask for confirmation before securing the booking and landing up with a problem. My message lay waiting without answer and I began to worry so decided to bite the bullet and pay in good faith that all would be well. My money went off my account swiftly. I was working on the Afristay site. Shortly thereafter I received an email that the booking was cancelled ... no return of money though... I engaged in email conversation with Browen and found the apologies luke warm and shrugging. My feed was pushed over to an Afristay consultant with a numb statement that Bayview did not have the money. The blame was laid at Afristays door with no professional responsibility felt by this establishment for willingly mandating them. This is a poor show indeed and I would advise those who are looking to take their business elsewhere.

This was the first booking I had received from Afristay. I did not have the option of confirming the booking. I tried to explain that I had not received the money as I would only get the money once the guest has arrived. I assured them I would repay the money as soon as I received it. Unfortunately, I couldn't repay the money immediately as I did not have the money. I have subsequently left Afristay.
