Situated directly above historical Simons Town with stunning views of the naval harbour and False Bay Yacht Club, A Boat House
is perfectly positioned for whale and dolphin watching. Take a short stroll to the charming village, famous Boulders Penguin Beach, Restaurants, shark diving centre or Yacht Club.
A Boat House is a 4 star Bed & Breakfast retreat with a nautical theme. Therese and Ludwig lived in the Caribbean on boats for years, hence `A Boat House` is a tribute to that time. Enjoy a full English and continental breakfast on the deck, whilst watching the navy ships and yachts. Self-catering by arrangement.
Have a sun downer on your deck in the evening and listen to the guinea-fowl and Hadedas or enjoy a swim in our solar heated indoor pool. Barbeque available on the deck or in the indoor pool area.
