Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Simon’s Town, South Africa Your Home Away From Home

Located on the eastern shore of the Cape Peninsula, in South Africa, sits the popular area known as Simon’s Town. This used to be a naval port in its own right, but as the nearby metropolis of Cape Town expanded, so Simon’s Town then became a suburb of this fantastic South African city. This is an area that is popular with tourists and any Simon’s Town holiday is guaranteed to place you in the ideal position to enjoy the best of both worlds: either great city excitement or a laid back quieter community feel.

Things to Do on Holiday in Simon’s Town, South Africa

Simon’s Town offers an ideal holiday atmosphere for its keen visitors and the self catering accommodation here is typically of a well-appointed standard. Much of the accommodation is likely to be provided in the form of a luxury city apartment. There are ample shopping opportunities to enjoy here and there is a convenient railway connection to downtown Cape Town if you fancy even more stores. On your Simon’s Town holidays, do try to find the time to explore the old naval dockyard that can be found here. Originally, this was a British port, but now it has been taken over by The South African Navy. Of particular note here is Martello Tower which dates back to 1796. Find out the history of this strange building and delve into why the British thought this round tower would protect the harbour from attacks by the French and Dutch at the time.

                                      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

                                      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.
