Da wir "Felsensicht" nicht als Geheimtipp für uns behalten können: sehr Empfehlenswert

5 of 5
Drei Generationen, Großeltern, Eltern und Enkelkinder haben vom 05 -11.07.2017 einen Teil ihres Urlaubes in diesem sehr schönen Haus verbracht und sind voll des Lobes. Ausstattung und Zustand des Hauses sind überduchschnittlich, die Sicht auf die Bucht ist wunderschön. Die Lage auf der Kaphalbinsel und Nähe zu Kapstadt machen diesen Standort ideal für Ausflüge in die Region. Die organisatorische Abstimmung und Kommunikation sind einwandfrei. Die Boulders-Pinguine sind fussläufig erreichbar und ,obwohl früh im Jahr, ein Wal und jagende Delfine wurden gesichtet.

Great Family Accomodation

4 of 5
Located above False Bay close to Simons Town, this gem fitted our party of 6 to perfection, it is in a cul-de-sac with no traffic noise well appointed with all the amenities one could hope for. The view from the property is spectacular and I would highly recommend this property to anyone planning to visit the Cape Town area.
