We came and arrived as strangers but after only 20 minutes it felt that we were life long friends. Thank you for all the friendliness, beautiful and comfortable accommodation. Although it is two hours drive from Cape Town it is so worth it. I will strongly refer Nautilus for all visiting St Helena Bay. We will see you again in the near future.Best wishes and love: Andre & Lize-Mari

Nautilus is surrounded by fynbos and a stone throw away...
