The house is situated on a hillside above False Bay offering outstanding views of this wonderful coastline. The house is very well equipped, tastefully decorated and very well maintained. The open plan lounge area is very comfortable with loads of space for guests to sit together or for individuals to find a quiet corner. The kitchen has every thing one might need. The very spacious terrace outside the lounge offers magnificent views across the bay. Eating breakfast here was a delight. We also made use of the excellent BBQ facility. The bedrooms are comfortable and all open onto the upper balcony. Security at the property is excellent. Only a short distance from the house is a gorgeous, safe swimming beach which is a great place to take a quick dip or spend a lazy day. Gail and Rene have provided huge amounts of information about the area and its attractions. Simon's Town has a great deal to offer any visitor. Make sure you visit and swim with the penguins at Boulders Beach. Delightful! Our pick of places to eat would include Bertha's, Mangata, The Salty Sea Dog and The Black Marlin. From the moment we booked communications with Gail and Rene were very easy. Any questions were answered quickly. We recommend Felsensicht without reservation. Thanks also to Jim the Caretaker. Sadly our stay of a week was far too short.

The views are stunning from both inside and outside the property. Yvonne and Helmo are great hosts and have a vast knowldge of the area. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here.
