We had a great stay! The apartment was perfect for our familly. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, a beautiful view, super comfy beds and very welcoming hosts. The garden with a jungle gym was great for our kids. We just regret we did not stay longer!

A wonderful place to stay in Simon's Town! Diane is a great host, kind and friendly, and her apartment is just like on the pictures.. The view is....just incredible! We were lucky to have sunny days during our "winter" stay, and we even went swimming in the Ocean on Fisherman's Beach really close to the flat.. Water was (very!) cold, but how could we have stayed here, facing the Ocean every day, without tasting his waves?! :-)) Our stay in Diane's place will stay a huge memory....even if the whales were very shy and didn't dare to come visiting us! :-(( You need a car to go around, but you can walk to the Boulders Beach for penguins (ask Diane the path..); we saw hundreds of them on the way. There is a convenient shop you can walk to, where you can find few things for meals. Thank you again, Diane.. We really enjoyed our stay in South Africa and were sad to go back home...

This flat was perfect for our two-day weekend trip to Simon's Town... We wish we could've stayed longer! Diane greeted us warmly and showed us around the unit, and we felt immediately at home. There was also a nice binder with helpful info about the unit and the surrounding area. The unit was exactly as described in the listing and the views were stunning! We were able to park our car in the garage, and there was also a security system -- we felt very safe. The location is perfect for viewing penguins at Boulder's Beach, and it's only a short drive to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. Diane and Peter were great hosts ... Thank you for a wonderful stay!
