About Whale View House

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.
