Whale View house comprises two luxurious, self-catering apartments boasting spectacular views of the False Bay area.

An abundance of wildlife surrounds you in this unique part of paradise; baboons, porcupines, guinea fowl and a variety of sea creatures can be observed. During whale season southern right whales, humpback wales, sperm whales and killer whales can be seen and heard right from the deck. Guests can take trips into historical Simons Town, spend a day with the great white sharks and seals, visit the Naval Museum or swim with the penguins; Simons Town has plenty to offer all age groups.

Both apartments contain luxurious bathrooms, designer interiors and all the mod cons needed for a comfortable stay. Guests are served a Continental breakfast on request and have the option of enjoying a typical South African braai on the private decks.

Whale View House is a three-minute drive from the center of Simons Town, two minutes from the famous Boulders penguin colony and 10 minutes from the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Your enthusiastic and friendly hosts, Dominic and Marieke, speak five languages between the two of them and provide a relaxing family environment that creates an unforgettable holiday experience.

We had such a lovely stay at Whale View House. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Simon's Town. Thank you to Marieke, she was a lovely host.

This is a lovely place for a holiday to get to know Cape Town and the area. We stayed for 2 weeks at this apartment and for us it was the perfect starting point for our excursions to the city of Cape Town, Gaansbai and Stellenbosch. The Cape Peninsula itself is also beautiful and has much to offer (penguins, an ostrich farm, baboons, stunning beaches and sunsets and of course Cape Point). Simon's Town is quiet, beautiful and safe, which is why we chose to stay there and not in Cape Town proper. Simon's Town has the feel of an English seaside town, complete with fish and chips :-) The garden and the private deck with the sea view are beautiful and perfect for breakfast or lunch. The apartment itself is tastefully furnished and decorated, the bathroom is big and modern, and the kitchenette had all we needed for a 2-week-vacation (fridge, hot plate, water kettle, toaster, microwave). The hosts were very friendly and helpful and even sent me my camera I had forgotten in the room. In all, a very good experience!
