The terrace is furnished with an 8 seater outdoor dining table and is under a white pergola that gives a great shade in the sunny days. There are three bedrooms in the main house; the main bedroom has en-suite bathroom with shower, and two double bedrooms with a bathroom that has bath and separate shower. The fourth bedroom is outside the main house just next to it and it's a double bedroom with small en-suite bathroom with shower. A quiet and relaxing place, a great base to enjoy and visit nearby places. Note: The Pool is solar heated, so it will be warmer in sunny days.More

This house could have an amazing panoramic view of almost the whole of False Bay, but it is blocked by a fortress of extremely high hedges. It is so frustrating. That magnificent unique vista could be the greatest feature of the house. The interior of...More

About the neighbourhood
Our daughter Laura loves to go to the little beaches near the house and also swim with the penguins at Boulders beach. The town itself with its ancient British air and colourful buildings is charming and has several restaurants, cafe's and nice shops. Mary also loves a bit of 'city live' so we are also not so far to be able to enjoy the rest of the sightings, top notch restaurants, concerts and shops that have made Cape Town a great holiday destination, but we are still able to sleep, wake up and relax in a tranquil (and not very windy) spot, overlooking amazing sea views. There are so many things to see and do around us... just to mention a few: - Hiking in Silvermine Nature Reserve enjoying the beautiful flora and fauna that is so unique to the Cape. - Visit Kalk Bay and its f...
Getting around
We recommend to have a car to move around the area and visit cape town. However, there are taxi services that can be arrange in a daily basis. Pingushouse is at: - 10 minute walk from Simons Town Golf Course - 20 minute walk from the world famous penguins in Boulders Beach. - 2000 mts. from the town centre - 10 minutes drive to Cape of Good Hope National Park (part of Table Mountain National Park) - 30 minutes drive to V&A Waterfront (Cape Town) - 45 minutes drive to Cape Town International Airport - 60 minutes drive to the Winelands, (Franschoek, Stellenbosch,..)
