About 15 On Penguin Guesthouse

15 On Penguin is a Guesthouse situated in Glen Marine, Simon’s Town and it is set along the lush, green Glen Marine mountainside overlooking the beautiful False Bay.
Our Guesthouse is a fully equipped accommodation establishment which serves as an ideal base from which to explore the peninsula. It is closely situated to many local tourist activities including exciting ventures such as Shark Cage Diving & Deep Sea Game Fishing. For a more relaxed family outing, the local penguin colony at Boulders Beach and the acclaimed Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve is just down the road from us. We boast with award winning beaches less than 5 minutes away either side of our establishment.
15 On Penguin can offer 3 comfortable suites, each with an en suite bathroom and 2 family rooms (1 self catering family unit with private bathroom & 1 family room with adjacent bathroom). Looking for a romantic get away? Then why not opt for our Honey Moon suite with its own Jacuzzi en suite & patio doors.
A scrumptious breakfast is freshly prepared every morning and it is served in our spacious dining area or on our terrace. If you feel like eating in after a long day of exploring, lunch & dinner meals can be provided at prior arrangement with management.
We push ourselves to exceed our guests’ expectations & we want 15 On Penguin to feel like

the place is very quiet and the Arnold and his wife are very nice and friendly people. the room was wide but the bad very very small.food was very good. a place to stay but the outside terrace is without fences as the garden as well. they could be very dangerous for children.If they repair them it is a very pleasant placce to stay

We appreciated the hospitality of the hosts. Orange juice on arrival, willingness to be flexible for us etc. A pity the space for toilet in and shower in a closet arrangement. Apart from that a good location with great views.

What a lovely warm reception and a comfortable room. A definite recommendation if you want something really affordable, clean, safe and cosy. The loo in the cupboard was quite a talking point.
