Simonstown is a nice location and the beds are nice. Except for this our experience unfortunately was not the best here.
The reseption was nice until we become aware of the strong mould smell and the stain caused by mould in the commonroom that was deemed as kitchen in the description. Even though the strong smell got somewhat weaker after we put on the fan in the bathroom and tried to get fresh air in to the bedroom connected to the kitchen the smell remained in the bedrom and was very strong in the kitchen. For us this meant a serious problem since one in the party had serious asthma and allergy issues against mould and fungus. We thus had to leave after two of our three planned nights. In spite of the facts the hosts refused to reimburse costs.
There were also other issues with the place. One of the rooms we rented had glasswindows for two full walls facing south and southeast. This made the evenings cold and the mornings hot when the sun heated half of the walls of the room. This room also lacked connecction to the common area.
The venue lacks finishing touches and the kitchen is not well equipped, with for example no stove. There is one fence that is broken that can be an issues for kids and the place is windy since it is out of the calmer bay area of Simonstown.
My friends and I enjoyed our stay here very much. It was in a convenient and safe location in Simons Town, just a few minutes walk from Boulders Beach. The rooms were clean and quiet and we very much appreciated the welcome bottle of wine as well as travelers tips and sights to see. I would definitely stay here again!
Nice private room with a bathroom, spacious balcony and a beautiful sea view. Karen and her husband were very friendly and helpful hosts. Recommended!
A wonderful and addictive stay! Great view of the ocean right from my bed. Our hosts were very caring, warm and friendly.
It was difficult to leave:-)
Karen's place was fantastic! Roomy, incredible views and she was a gracious host. We were a bit late arriving and got lost on the way but she came to meet us to help us along. She gave us a bottle of wine as a welcome present and was very helpful with information about shark cage diving. I would definitely recommend her place. The balcony made our stay for sure!
