Our stay at Crows nest was lovely. We had all the amenities, and waking up to the spectacular view over Simons town was amazing. The apartment was spotless! Will definitely be booking here again

The Crow's Nest is a hidden gem in Simonstown. It is a beautiful flat with a magnificent view over False Bay from both the lounge and main bedroom. It is well-furnished (including homely touches like rugs, books, DVDs and CDs) and the kitchen is well-equipped.  The window seat in the lounge is a great place to sit and read while watching the changing moods of False Bay. Although there were only two of us, the flat could comfortably accommodate four people. We will most certainly visit it again.
