We offer a comfortable affordable venue that frees up your budget to enjoy the many sights and experiences of the peninsula and greater Cape Town.

We are ideally situated with easy access to the penguins, Cape Point, the winelands and the Cape Town waterfront. Closer to home the start of the Elsies Peak hiking trail is 20 metres from your door. This trail through the fynbos provides truly magnificent views over the entire vista of False Bay. There are wonderful beaches such as Fish Hoek (with the new safety net) and Glencairn beach (which you can see from Bay Vista), and we can tell you of some special secret beaches as well, to avoid the crowds. The world class spectacle that is the Boulders penguin colony is minutes away. Where else in the world can you swim with wild penguins? Go to sleep listening to the gentle sound of the waves on Glencairn beach.More

About the neighbourhood
The southern peninsula is a gem! From Simonstown you can explore further south to the SPECTACULAR Cape Point lighthouse and Cape of Good Hope area. Or pop in to Simonstown (minutes from Bay Vista) and visit the Boulders penguin colony, or go for a kayak trip to see the penguins from the water. Or take a shark-spotting trip to the island of ;'Air Jaws' fame - and see great white sharks breaching out of the water. Or visit the quaint Kalk Bay harbour for fabulous sea foods and even more fabulous views. Shop the eclectic characterful little shops along Kalk Bay main road. Better still, browse our information folder in the apartment for a host of ideas...
Getting around
We recommend your own car rental. If not, Uber is good; formal taxis are also available. Some bus routes can also be considered. The Metro train is also an option, but stick to daytime travels.
