Very nice place.
Frantisek krejci Dec 2013
Avian Leisure has been the most stunning establishment we'd visited during our whole stay at the Western Cape! It is the most beautiful, clean, spacious place with the most stunning views of Simons Town. We also found all-information pamphlets on the apartment's desk, which were very helpful, but not only that - our friendly hosts, Marie-Louise and Patrick has been very helpful, always there if needed and their service are the best. The bird life is beautiful and we even saw porcupines around eight in the evenings. We will be back for sure and we will also tell all our friends and family about Avian Leisure. Thanks a million!
