About Avian Leisure

Avian Leisure has two spacious and modern apartments, both with their own private entrances and ample off road parking, in a natural setting on the hillside overlooking False Bay.

Shearwater, with its unrestricted and fabulous sea views, sleeps four adults comfortably. Facilities include a large open plan living room with self-contained kitchen and dining and sitting areas, a large sea-facing master bedroom and a second bedroom, both with twin beds, and two bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath. Both living room and master bedroom face onto a large wooden deck with magnificent views in all directions. Kitchen is fully equipped with hob, oven, microwave, fridge, crockery and cooking utensils. TV and telephone available and kettle braai by arrangement. Watsonia is a one bedroom suite, with twin beds, a bathroom with large shower and a light and airy living room with small but well equipped kitchenette (fridge, microwave, hob, crockery and cooking equipment). TV. It does not have a patio but guests staying here have access to our garden, which provides stunning sea views. Laundry service is available in the village. All towels and percale linen are provided and are changed twice a week. The apartments are serviced on a twice weekly basis.

We are ideally situated to explore the delights of the Western Cape, from Cape Point to the Cape Winelands. Simon's Town itself is a charming and historic village offering warm hospitality and a relaxed atmosphere:

- a variety of good restaurants and shops in and around the village
- safe, sheltered bathing beaches on the warm water side of the Peninsula
- Access to a myriad of activities, experiences and sights...sea fishing, walking, scuba diving, canoeing, bird watching, pelagic trips, whale watching, golfing, shark viewing, to name but a few... And over and above all this, there are the simple pleasures of waking to a spectacular sunrise over False Bay and watching the full moon emerge over the bay.

Beach: Avian Leisure is located on the mountain-side above a delightful, safe swimming beach – either walk down the hill (1 km) & up again, or drive down and park next to the beach. And we're on the warm ocean side of the Peninsula.

We spent 4 nights in the Shearwater apartment and we enjoyed every moment! The 2 bedroom apartment is extremely spacious, clean and comfortable with breathtaking views from the lounge, bedroom and magnificent deck. The owners have paid great attention to their guest's needs especially with extra features like beach chairs that you can take with you to the beach, DVD player, books, games, beach toys for children and the well equipped kitchen came not only with tea and coffee but it also had milk, oil, spices, foil!! Thank-you for making our stay so memorable and comfortable.

We highly recommend you stay at Avian Leisure. The accommodation is great - clean, comfortable and well located. The hosts are very friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the area.We were delighted to be able to view a couple of porcupines in the garden one evening.

We stayed in Shearwater and wow this apartment was fantastic. The views from the rooms were outstanding and the rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated with so many little extra touches (flowers in the room and lay on the towels,). Apartment was fully-equipped and so peaceful. We were given lots of information about the surrounding area. We missed the porcupine in the garden but enjoyed watching and listening to the birds. We only stayed for one night at the end of our holiday and I wish it could have been for longer. It was paradise. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We would recommend...
