About Mariner Guesthouse

Mariner Guesthouse is built against the slopes of the Fynbos covered mountain in Simon’s Town. This historical harbour town is 45km from Cape Town and Cape Town International Airport, and situated in the greater Table Mountain National Park. With breathtaking views across False Bay and within walking distance of the centre of town and beaches, Mariner Guesthouse offers stylish elegance, comfort and friendly hospitality.

Sit back and relax on your private balcony whilst enjoying the colourful display of the sunset and watching the whales play in the bay. Later, experience true South African culture around the fire when we have our weekly “braai” (South African traditional “barbeque”) while your hosts share stories of life in South Africa.  A truly memorable and enriching evening!

Mariner Guesthouse offers 8 spacious and beautifully decorated en-suite bedrooms, all with exceptional views. One family unit also available. Get cosy in front of our fireplace in the lounge or have breakfast on our open veranda, enjoying the fresh air. Liesel and her team look forward to making your stay an unforgettable one.

We accept Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners)

Beach: Mariner Guesthouse is within easy walking distance, about 1 km, from sandy, safe swimming beaches. A walkway past the nesting area of the African Penguin connects Seaforth and Boulders beaches.
