Close to the southernmost tip of Africa, in the Cape Town Village of Simon's Town is where you will find Thalassa, a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom Seaforth Holiday Villa. This magical family home overlooks Seaforth Beach, is a two minute walk to the more secluded Water's Edge Beach, and is only a five minute walk to the world famous Boulder's Beach walkway. Boulder's Beach nature conservancy is home to a colony of endangered African Penguins – unique to this part of the world. Simon's Town is a delightful holiday spot - close enough for day excursions to Cape Town City, the Winelands and other major tourist attractions like Table Mountain, Robben Island, the V&A Waterfront and the Two Oceans Aquarium.

Closer to home, this delightful naval town offers easy access to some of the best beaches in the world, and a fantastic range of local ocean and land activities. There is a good range of interesting stores nearby, and some amazing restaurants that you really should try! The Villa is charmingly decorated in a vintage style, although all appliances are state of the art and new! On arrival at Thalassa, you cannot help but feel that you have taken a step back in time, to an era when the pace was slower, and life was savoured. More

Everything was amazing at the venue. Grown ups were happy, kids were happy, beach was across the road. Only "negative" is the length of time that was taken to release my deposit.

About the neighbourhood
The Cape Peninsula is a great place to take a holiday! It is positioned close enough to Cape Town for excursions, but is also far enough out of town to give you a real holiday feeling. The beaches in the area are truly incredible, and most days you will find yourself grabbing some beach gear from the convenient location at the front door, and strolling down to one of the easily accessible local beaches. Locals are laid back and hospitable, and will gladly respect your privacy or enter into a friendly chat if you prefer. You may find well yourself swimming with an African Penguin, a unique and wonderful experience! The Peninsula towns are all easily accessible by train or by car. From Simon's Town, you can visit Glencairn, Fishhoek - one of the bigger towns, and the only beach with a sha...
