Rustige atmosfeer. Baie netjies en skoon. Wonderlike gasvrye ontvangs. Ons kom beslis weer.

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 was one of the best self-catering units we’ve ever stayed in and our hosts, Marie and Tally, made us feel very welcome and at home from the minute we arrived.The unit was beautiful and well equipped with all the necessities and so much more and the attention to detail (welcome note, home made cookies, water glasses at the wash basin in the bathroom and info file) made quite an impression.Cape St Martin Private Nature Reserve is one of the Cape West Coast’s best hidden gems and the perfect place for a nice relaxing weekend away. Nautilus is surrounded by fynbos and a stone throw away...
